A friend of mine was surfing the net looking for a toaster and in the process he came upon the "Back to Basics TEM500".

He told me to order 2 and he would pay for them. What a nice guy and I got mine for free. :-)

I had read some reviews on other sites but they were all saying what a great idea it was and there was nothing from someone who had one.

When I saw it I thought it was an interesting idea but I had no idea how great it was until I got it.

I really love it! I am GadgetManDan and I have lots of cool gadgets and this is one of the coolest.

It's easy to use and clean up. It takes around 7 minutes to make and I am impressed with the build quality of it. You can use it to make toast, boil up to 4 eggs, poach 1 egg or a combination due to the mode buttons on the front.

The process of making a toasted English muffin with a poached egg sandwich is excellent. When the water boils away the egg is poached the English muffin pops up so everything is done at the same time. I tell everyone about this amazing little device and suggest it to anyone who likes toasted English muffins and poached eggs.

If you're thinking of buying go ahead you will be happy that you did and your friends will think it's really cool when they see it.

It's a great gift idea too.

I received this toaster from my husband for Christmas and it was the best gift I've gotten in years. I'm a big fan of the Starbucks turkey bacon breakfast sandwich and now I never have to spend money on one again. In just about 4 minutes I can make the perfect sandwich with any bread, meat or cheese I have in the house. I'm a new mom and with the tired morning I face it's nice to have this simple pleasure to look forward to in the morning :)

I bought two of these, one for a friend who was moving away and one for myself. We both love it. In the morning I just set it, then get ready for work, and when I'm done I have a delicious breakfast sandwich waiting for me. The only thing I could complain about is the egg is sometimes wet (on the bottom of the egg somehow), and this gets the sandwich wet. THIS IS A MUST HAVE IF YOU LIKE EGGS FOR BREAKFAST and live a busy life.

I received this item through a promotion by Dempster's and it has replaced my old toaster completely. I've made hard and soft cooked eggs, as well as healthy egg-white & whole wheat English muffin breakfast sandwiches. I've tried it with a slice of cooked ham and pre-cooked bacon occasionally and they've consistently heated through every time.

I was excited (eggcited??) to see a larger version available for my family and thought I would gift the smaller one to my eldest child and partner for their apartment... I love it that much that I would gift it to someone else. I'd even buy one for my workplace!

Clean-up wise, I am noticing a bit of calcium build-up in the metallic heating well, but it is not bothersome nor does it impair the functionality of the product.

This toaster is the best. I ordered it after reading the reviews and was a little skeptical. The thing is easy to use, and quickly makes an awesome breakfast sandwich. It takes 2 mins to prep, 6 mins max to cook and then 1 minute to clean. The best part is, it cooks the toast and egg at the same time... when the toast get's to it's desired darkness, the elements shut off, but it stays "down" to keep warm. Then when the egg is done, the toast pops up.

Wish I got the double now... I was trying to minimize my risk by just purchasing the $35 two slicer.

I bought this toaster/egg cooker for my Husband as a christmas gift tuck in. He loves breakfast sandwiches in the morning, and to make them with a frying pan can be a little friggy sometimes. We used this Christmas morning and several mornings so far and it has worked perfectly. We love it! It's easy to clean and isn't much bigger than the toaster we had before. The one note is that the sausage meat or bacon has to be cooked first as the meat tray just re-heats the meat.

Excellent toaster. Would but to give as a gift again!

I have now ordered, I believe, 8 of these toasters as gifts? I received one as a wedding gift, and fell in love. As did many others that would come to visit. Timing is perfect, and once you figure out the water level that is right for you, the egg is perfect... A real time saver too, as it is very quick, and the toast and egg are done at the same time.

Ordered this as a novelty item for Christmas last year, as we were making egg and ham muffins regularly anyways. This is the most used appliance in my kitchen! It has kept my son fed for the last year and it is easy to use, so he will make his own breakfast. Everyone in the family loves it. It was a good deal and arrived very quickly. Great Christmas gift!

If you're like me, you never have time (or make the time) for breakfast in the a.m. So you end up eating whatever is sitting at the bottom of your desk or filing cabinet etc. This device is the answer!

I totally love it and have been telling everyone to get one. Crack an egg in to the dish, put a piece of back bacon on the rack above it, press down on your toast/english muffin, and walk away to finish getting ready for work. Return 5mins later and a perfect "Egg McMuffin" awaits! I throw some cheese & a couple slices of raw tomato on after its cooked (I tried warming the tomato with the bacon, but it got way overcooked.)

I have to admit, this sat unopened in a box for 4 years until my daughter recently started wanting eggs for breakfast all the time. I pulled it out so that she could make her own eggs unsupervised (it's so easy & safe), but I've become totally dependent on it myself.

This was a christmas gift for my boyfriend and it is used almost every day! It's a good way to eat healthier and you can make your own breakfast sandwhiches easily. My kitchen would not be complete without it!!
