"We Entertain When It Rains"  




The Egg&Muffin Toaster came completely assembled and ready for use.  Included was a measuring cup for water, instruction manual, and a quick reference guide.

The unit is a combination of a toaster and a poaching unit.  The poaching section is integrated into overall construction of the toaster.  The Egg&Muffin Toaster will work as a regular toaster and will accommodate varying thickness (bread, bagels, croissants, etc...). The crumb tray is on the side and slides out for easy cleaning.

The Poacher is made up of five separate pieces (Lid, Warming Tray, Poaching Tray, Steamer Tray, and Heating Tray).

The controls were simple to understand and the functions (poaching, toasting) can be use separately or in combination.  The unit appeared well designed.  We found the retro styling and the dark charcoal color smart and sophisticated. We think the unit will fit in well in any kitchen.


Back To Basics

Egg & Muffin Toaster

By Wan Chi Lau

The egg, sausage, and toast trio has been a breakfast staple for generations.  With today's go-go-go lifestyle, sometimes it just takes too long to make a hearty breakfast.

BackToBasics has created a toaster for egg and muffin sandwich lovers to create the sandwich quickly and easily.

We at RainyDayKitchen got our hands on one.  We'll take a look at its basic features in the FirstLook review. We'll make some sandwiches and tell you how it performed in the FirstUse report.
