Novelty toaster


Owners and reviewers agree that the Back to Basics Egg and Muffin Toaster is a simple, efficient device that makes a complete breakfast in about five minutes. Eggs poach in a nonstick cup and bread toasts at the same time. Some owners also use it to...

Easy to clean, cooks quickly, simple to use

Breakfast meats can emerge soggy, breaks easily, some owners say

Great product! One suggestion to the manufacturer...


Does everything it says very efficiently, great time saver!

This thing is great!!


I would recommend this to anyone!! Also great for just making toast and hard boiling eggs!!

Service is great, price is great and the toaster is fantastic!! I have used it every morning since I got it and even invited friends over to have muffins. Clean up is easy with a paper towel. Will fix a sausage, egg and cheese muffin in about 5...

If I have to have a con, I would say that the egg does get drippings from the sausage patty, (which also adds flavor) and I have to drain it over the sink before putting it on the muffin. No big deal though, I just take a spatula and hold the egg in...

Back to Basics TEM500


This is obviously a design flaw with the unit

When this thing works it is great

Problem with the design of this unit. I have had two of these units in the last 18 months, Both have had the egg cooking portion quit working. Pay attention to the instruction manual's statement to unplug the unit after each use

Genius idea


This appliance is great, If you love an egg muffin then this is a must have gift for yourself. Just under 5 mins you can have your favorite morning sandwich. Treat yourself something good today and buy it

Non you won't regret it

Worth the money.

Very easy to learn. Seems to be of decent quality

The non-stick pan for the egg is not non-stick. You'll probably have to soak it for a while to get the egg out of it
