The Fastest Way of Cooking Breakfast

cmc2Breakfast is the most important meal of the day; I bet your mom has told you this hundreds of times. The truth is your mom was right, and a good and filling breakfast is a great way to start the day. If you have a balanced breakfast that fills you with energy, you will feel great throughout the entire day and you will not end up munching on unhealthy snacks, while feeling exhausted and cranky. I have searched for the fastest way of cooking breakfast for a while now, and I can say that I found it. My solution is called the Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker and it cooks a perfect breakfast within minutes. Here is my take on this breakfast making machine.

A really practical model

cmc4This one comes with two cooking areas, where you can place two sandwiches, a sandwich and a doughnut, or any other combination you may have found that it works as a breakfast menu. I love it how practical it is, because I only need to assemble the sandwiches on the spot and let them cook on their own for a few minutes. Right now, you may be thinking that grabbing a hamburger at the fast food around the corner or the drive-through is still more convenient, but let me tell you this. Do you know what really goes into the sandwich or hamburger they make at these eateries? All companies today, including fast food places, are trying to cut corners, which means that they will use lower quality ingredients and more sauce filled with preservatives and sugar to cheat your taste buds that you are eating something good. There is no such a thing when you cook your breakfast at home. The Hamilton Beach 25490A Breakfast Sandwich Maker offers you the perfect solution, so you can make your own food, knowing exactly what goes into it. Plus, you will not be driven to use extra sugar or salt, like fast food restaurants do, which means that you will have a healthier breakfast. In addition, if you need to prepare breakfast for more people, you could also get the double model.


It is fast and easy to use

It is absolutely a no brainer to use this sandwich maker. It is so easy that I even think it is fun to make breakfast this way. I just place all the ingredients in each cooking area, and I even break an egg on top, because I love the extra protein, and within less than 5 minutes, my breakfast is ready. If you look at it, the sandwich maker may look small, but because it has 2 cooking areas to use for 2 sandwiches at the same time, it will have no trouble offering you the most filling breakfast you can get.

Cleaning is a breeze, and the unit looks great, too

People hate doing the dishes, generally speaking, and I am no exception to the rule. So I like that the Hamilton Beach 25490A Breakfast Sandwich Maker is really easy to clean, since it can be taken apart and washed in a dishwasher machine. The looks on this model are nice, too, and I love it how it sits on my kitchen counter, just waiting to be used.

A kitchen appliances addict’s blog

People have the strangest of passions. I believe mine is worth writing about on a blog, even if it’s not the most usual of hobbies. So “Hello, my name is Josh Carlson and I’m an addict”, but not the kind you would expect. My addiction is related to electronics and especially smart kitchen appliances and I don’t see that as a bad thing (maybe only when I spend more than I can afford on them).  I started buying all sorts of aiding kitchen items when I began cooking more complicated dishes. In the first weeks, I had trouble making dough on my own, so I bought a dough maker, chopping vegetables was also a nasty task and it took me a lot of time (and parts of my fingers occasionally), so I bought an onion chopper, if I wanted to make some kind of sauce, I needed a blender, etc.

All in all, my small utensils helped me through difficult times and I don’t know when buying them stopped being a necessity and became a pleasure, something that I did because it made me feel excited. I think the first item that I bought out of sheer excitement was a two-color teapot, although not for me but for my mom, who’s a great tea lover and she always invites people in for tea.

cmc3However, anytime I buy a new kitchen electronic I make sure it is not only useful, but it is also funny or have a design that will make me enjoy using it and that’s how I managed to keep myself an avid cooker and a healthy eater.  It is true that I also have items that are not particularly funny, but these are extremely useful, so they keep me hooked with their practicality. One of these is the Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker that allows you to prepare a breakfast sandwich with eggs, ham and bread in about 5 minutes. At the end of these short minutes, all it’s left to do is to take the sandwich and eat it. It is incredibly useful and easy-to-use, and occupies only a small place.

The Darth Vader pancake maker

Cooking and kitchen appliances are not the sole passions that I have.  I’m also a fan of fantasy movies and literature. Star Wars is among my favorites and I have watched the series countless times. When I ran into this pancake maker, I knew it had to be mine. It works like a normal pancake maker, that is, you just pour the batter inside it, close the lid and adjust the cooking time depending on how crunchy you want your Darth Vader pancake to be. May the force be with you when you browse the internet to find it!

P.s.: If you can’t find the Darth Vader pancake maker you can try the Darth Vader imprinting toaster that will toast your bread wearing the face of the villain on it.


The iPhone controlled Kettle

This one is my newest kitchen gadget. This device I can control using my iPhone from a distance. If I’m outside the house, I can just program it to start. In the morning, when my alarm sounds, I can command the kettle to start boiling water automatically. It’s really useful in mornings when you stumble out of bed and you have a hard time deciding what to do first. One website that features a lot of interesting such products is
