Back to Basics Egg & Muffin 2-Slice Toaster and Egg Poacher

Toaster, egg cooker, and meat warmer–this innovative unit combines all three functions into one easy-to-use appliance. The unit can be used solely as a full-functioning toaster, or it can simultaneously toast bread, poach or steam-scramble an egg, and warm a pre-cooked slice of meat–or any combination of these three functions–to make the ultimate breakfast sandwich at home in just four minutes. Simply add 2 tablespoons of water to the heating tray using the included measuring cup, lightly coat the poaching tray with oil or nonstick cooking spray, and crack an egg into the poaching tray. Then place a slice of pre-cooked meat onto the warming tray and replace the lid. Add bread, an English muffin, croissant, or bagel into the wide toaster slots, select “egg/toast” from the control panel, and push the lever down to begin the cooking process. In addition to making breakfast sandwiches, the unit can also be used to boil up to four eggs at a time. Other convenient features include light to dark toast settings, automatic shut-off, an easy-to-clean control touchpad, a removable crumb tray, and handy cord storage. To clean, simply wipe out the heating tray and poaching tray with a damp paper towel. The toaster measures 7-1/5 by 15-1/4 by 8-1/6 inches and carries a one-year warranty.

How does it work? The Back to Basics® Egg & Muffin Toaster™ toasts bread, English muffins, bagels, or croissants at the same time it steams-poaches the egg and warms pre-cooked meat.

Press “Egg/Toast” on the front panel and push the toaster lever down. In about four minutes, you’ll have the ingredients ready for a delicious egg and muffin sandwich at home.
