I mean, c'mon.
A toaster that makes egg mcMuffins, awesome.

The only thing I don't like about this is the little pan, its non stick, but easily scratches.
Also, I'm actually on my 2nd toaster now, not because of the pan, but the actual toasting elements died on the first one.
However, that all being said, to have a device that can easily hard boil 4 eggs, or poach an egg with a push of a button, its just worth it.
Think about how much you'd spend for a breakfast sandwich, this will do it much cheaper.

Note:
- This will NOT cook meat, just warm it. Please use precooked meats on here, and follow their instructional guidelines.

The one one I bought from amazon is better quality than the original version I got.
I'm guessing a new revision.
It's quite a handy device if you're on the go and want a quick breakfast sandwich.
You can use whatever bread like substance you want.

It rocks.
'nuff said.

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.

We love that this toaster because it is not only an interesting gadget, but it actually works! The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is that sometimes the English muffin isn't quite toasted as much as you'd like when the egg is ready. As well, to boil eggs, you are better to use medium eggs instead of large to get the right consistency.
But it works like a charm and saves on frying pan cleanup.

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.

The toaster is a cool idea being able to cook eggs and toast at the same time. The toaster does not toast the bread very evenly which drives my kids crazy. Sometimes the eggs don't cook enough for a soft boiled egg but I just have to work on the right amount of water to use then it will be fine. If they could work on the bread toasting evenly then it would be a great 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 to replace a nearly-identical Hamilton Beach breakfast maker that failed after several years. Prospective purchasers should note that the egg cooking cup is painted black, inside and out. It is *not* non-stick - you need to use cooking spray in order to get your egg out easily.
With the Hamilton Beach breakfast maker, it was only a few weeks before the black paint started to come off, as a result of using a knife to get the egg to pop out. I'm still using the original Hamilton Beach egg cup (which is now almost paint-free, after 3-4 years of use). If I had just bought this product for the first time, I think I would look for a small ceramic ramekin to cook my egg in instead, rather than risk eating paint flakes.
The toaster has a handy crumb tray and toasts very reliably even if you do one egg sandwich after another.

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.
