A couple of weeks ago our toaster died. A SAMs club special, it lasted for about eight years, which isn’t bad. Bugs reported that blue smoke rolled from the bottom, and when I tried to touch it, it was emanating so much heat I though it was going to explode.
So I got on line and googled toaster to see what was out there. The first review of a toaster I read said, “Great toaster, but doesn’t cook eggs.” I thought they were kidding. I laughed, and read it out loud to my husband, who also laughed.
As it happens, there ARE toasters that cook eggs. Who knew? I started looking at them and began to hatch a wonderful plan.
The boys all love those breakfast sandwiches–you know- the kind from Jimmy Dean. But feeding three teen boys breakfast sandwiches could make a girl go broke. What if, THEY MADE THEIR OWN???? Before I knew it I was ordering the Westbend toaster/egg cooker.
I have to admit, it’s pretty handy. And even better, I got it at Walmart for a bargain price.
The boys? All three LOVE IT, and claim they never want any other kind of breakfast sandwich again. Mission accomplished.
Sweet deal for the boys and mom! Win win situation, Arnel 🙂
Definitely! Very happy with this little item.
Very convenient 🙂
what a clever trinket! I have never seen one of these!! anything that does more than one thing is A-OK in my book!
Well that makes me feel better! I thought maybe I was alone in not knowing such a thing existed! And while they sometimes would just cook and egg in the skillet, that was such a bigger mess than this. Plus, no fire is involved!
Still laughing. 😀
LOL! Me too! 🙂
How clever. It would be great in a dorm room.
I never thought of that! Yes it would be. And the eggs cook pretty darn fast–I’d say they are done in about 2-3 minutes.
You mean there really is such a thing? How amazing. If I had the space for one I might consider it because that’s what I like for breakfast, too.
Thanks for stopping by my new blog and leaving a comment.
Chris, they make a two slice version that seems much smaller. Give it a look!
I for one never knew about such a toaster….amazing…Diane
I know. It seemed so weird when I read that. I really thought the comment was tongue in cheek–sorta like, everything but the bathroom sink! HA HA.
Oh how awesome! I so have to go online now to see if they are available here in SA. Thank goodness annual bonus time is almost here 🙂
Hope you find one! I think the toaster part is actually pretty well made, as well.
What a great find. Was your “hatch a plan” an intended, or unintended pun? 😀
LOL! No, I didn’t even think of it!
I have one of these..they are awesome!
They really are! Cuts down on mess too!
That is awesome! We just bought a new toaster a couple of weeks ago. Wish I’d seen this first!
Oh bummer! I hate it when that happens!
I’ve never heard of such a thing … I’m so far behind 😦 … cuts down on messes, boys do it themselves (?), Mum doesn’t have to … sounds like a GREAT invention. Just, who knew?
I sure didn’t. I really thought it was a joke when I first read it…LOL.
I love it, a multi-tasking toaster!
