    That's a Tasty Breakfast Sandwich!!!

    This was a surprise gift for Christmas. My 7 yr. old daughter was the one that picked it out for me. I'd never really considered this product before I got it. However, I'm very glad she had such a great eye! It is such a neat little machine and works flawlessly! Using it couldn't be easier. First you let it heat up, then you put in the bottom half of your english muffin, then your protein (canadian bacon, bacon, or sausage, etc.) then a slice of cheese (I prefer the Kraft Sliced Deli American Cheese), then you lower the next disc with the lever, and break an egg in it, and the yolk too, and finally top that with the top half of the english muffin. Then close the whole thing and set your timer for 5 min. Then you slide the egg slider (remember to do this first, as it will save some frustration with why your sandwich isn't one whole sandwich, lol), and then lift all the rings and you have a delicious Egg McMuffin without ever needing to leave your house! I also really like that the inner rings can be taken out and are dishwasher safe. Though I prefer to hand wash them, in order to preserve the non-stick coating. My only regret is that she didn't buy the dual machine, as making each one of these sandwiches can be time consuming when you are making them for a lot of people, one at a time. Note: The rings and really the entire machine gets VERY HOT, so be careful when handling it.

    Fun little appliance - but not great.

    This thing is fun to use for the novelty of it - every once in a while. As long as you want to make simple, 3 ingredient sandwiches, you'll be pleased. (i.e. one sausage patty, an egg, and a single slice of cheese). If you ever want to get a little more inventive and ambitious with your ingredients this isn't going to work well. You're going to face space limitations very, very soon after starting your sandwich build, to where you wont be able to close the lid. And since this design works on induction heating, you're items wont cook all the way through. Also note: Choose your English muffins wisely. The more cornmeal that's on them, the quicker you'll burn them while using this. If you want to make simple breakfast sandwiches in 5 mins while you're on your way out of the door, this will work great for you and will serve you extremely well. If you want to make something a little more advanced, you're going to be a little disappointed.

    Bought this around Christmas and have used it at least twice a week. Only takes 5 minutes to cook a delicious sandwich. Extremely easy clean up. There are cooking plates between the top and bottom that are easily removed for cleaning. There is not a timer or indicator to tell you when the sandwich is done so I just set my kitchen timer for 5 minutes and it's perfect every time. I've used english muffins, bagels and meat combinations like ham and sausage. I found the best way to add in cheese is to sprinkle it on top of the pierced egg about half way through cooking, this is also when I put the top on either the bagel or english muffin. The attached picture shows at 2 1/2 minutes where cheese is added. Enjoy!!!!

    I'm always very hesitant to purchase gadgets like this but I had some rewards points and wanted a quick way to make a breakfast sandwich all at once so I gave it a shot. Overall, it's pretty good. A few things to note. Make sure you don't use too much cheese or it will melt all out the side of the unit and onto the counter. If using a scrambled egg in the sandwich, scramble the egg only. Do not add milk. If adding salsa, make sure to use something like a pico as it's not as watery as regular salsa. The biggest downside to me is the fact that it can only fit an English muffin. I would love to use a bagel but I guess I can revert to the stove/griddle for that. All in all, great, neat way to make a quick sandwich to go.

    I absolutely love the breakfast sandwich maker. I am disabled and with recent surgeries I have been unable to cook or use my oven. The sandwich maker allows me to easily make food that is healthier than microwave dinners. It is so simple and easy. The food is ready within 5 minutes, and turns out perfectly every time. I will be purchasing a couple more for family and friends. I also plan to purchase the breakfast burrito maker they offer.i couldn't be happier with this product and highly recommend it. I also highly recommend if for anyone who is disabled and has limited range of motion.

    Commercialism at its finest!

    My kiddos saw the commercial for this soooo many times-they tried for a year to convince me we HAD to have this. I bought it in store on super sale as a sort of gag gift but it performs as it should and the kids were elated to have it! Its external dimensions are larger than expected and the internal much smaller. Diameter could have been larger - no bagel is fitting here but if a "mcmuffin" is your thing, this works. Could I live without it? Absolutely, but can think of many times this would have been convenient (College!). Also, far prefer to allow kids to help using this vs the stove.

    I am one that stops by fast food locations often for breakfast sandwiches. Now, making my own is as easy as it claims to be. Of course, they came out with a dual one shortly after my purchase and I have to wait to sit and eat them until after I make a second one but that allows the first to cool down just enough to eat while the second one finishes. Clean up is pretty easy too. I suggest spraying some of the cooking spray lightly onto the outside controls as sometimes the cheese melts onto the outside, but that helps. Great item! I bought 4 and used them as gifts.

    This is a cool sandwich maker and very easy to use. I purchased it for my boyfriend as a stocking stuffer for Xmas and he loves it. Makes better sandwiches than you get from McDonald's or Dunkin Donuts because you can use real & fresh ingredients and make it exactly how you want it. The only negative is that it doesn't have a timer so you have to keep an eye on it to make sure your sandwich doesn't burn. I set the timer on my stove so I don't have to stand there and wait. I would definitely recommend this product to others.

    I saw this at the store and wasn't really sure what it was. I checked out the box but didn't buy it right away. It kind of stuck with me and I ended up going back and buying it. We totally love this thing. Once you get the hang of it, it's super easy to use. Just put in your sandwich fixings and let it go for a couple minutes. It makes an awesome, fast breakfast and it's nice to know what's actually going in to your sandwich. We absolutely love this thing and haven't had any problems with it.

    I absolutely love this item. It is easy to use and clean. I enjoy having fresh egg sandwiches nearly everyday. I add lots of extras like spinach, onion and tomato and it cooks them perfectly. So much more tasty and healthy than the fast food versions. Also I once forgot about I was cooking one and 20 mins later I remembered, and it didn't even burn. It was a little dry, but still a great tasting sandwhich. Pros-cooks perfectly, easy to use & clean Con-preheat takes as long as to cook-give yourself 10 mins total

    I make the sandwiches upside down - put the top of the bagel or muffin on the bottom, then cheese and sausage or bacon. When we first got it, I made the first sandwich all together but the bagel on top of the egg was kind of burned and too crispy. Since there's no temp control the sandwiches come out better if you let the egg cook almost all the way, then put the bagel or muffin on to finish cooking. Other than that it works very well.

    This was a complete impulse buy as I had not been actively looking for an egg mcmuffin maker in the least. Brousing through appliances it caught my eye and was affordable enough I took a chance. Glad I did, because its great! Almost zero clean up and makes a great sandwich, egg is fluffy and full while the entire thing slides out no fuss. If you lil this kind of breakfast its worth it as you can make one on the run with no clean up later! Recommended!

    I used this sandwhich maker quite a few times to make bacon/egg and cheese bagels to take with me for work or even ham and cheese sandwhich and besides the longer timing of having to cook the bacon prior of making the sandwhich. Overlal, the sandwhich came out really tasty, the black nonstick area's were super easy to clean and any cooked egg or cheese that stuck to the black nonstick areas came off really easy. I enjoy using this sandwhich maker and the price was well worth it.

    I use this almost every weekday to make a breakfast sandwich before work. It works well with English muffins. I used mini bagels once, but they don't work as well. They are too small in diameter for the machine. I ran out of English muffins one day and used bread cut into the correct size circle. A little butter on the heating plates and it makes an awesome sandwich that is very much like a toasted sandwich. You can use Jumbo eggs without any problem. The book says to use large eggs.

    This was purchased as a gift for my wife. She loves egg breakfast english muffins. This little gadget does the trick. It takes only a few minutes to make and she takes it on her way. We have experimented with using it different ways and with different food items but the easiest as a ham and cheese egg sandwich cooked as instructed from the products instructions. I would recommend this to anyone who likes their breakfast sandwiches.

    I love my new sandwich maker for its ease of use. The ham/sausage, egg, and cheese on English muffins are awesome. Although you can only make one at a time and I recommend putting the cheese in AFTER your sandwich is done because the cheese melts all over the device. It takes a little bit to heat up and you have to set a timer of some sort so you know when to take it out. Even with these small setbacks I love it. It's so easy and worth the price.

    I got this to make easy breakfast sandwiches instead of running to McDonald's or Burger King and it was a smart purchase. I can use turkey bacon and quality ingredients to make a very quick and tasty breakfast sandwich that's also a lot healthier (and less expensive) than the ones you have to go out to buy. It's easy to use and easy to clean, so it's a good addition to your kitchen and your breakfast is ready by the time your coffee is made.

    I received the breakfast sandwich maker as a gift. Took a little bit to figure out the best way to utilize. This is primarily because it is easy to over stuff the bottom layer (bottom of sandwich, meat, and cheese). If you over stuff, you wind up with a condition where the top layer (with egg and top of sandwich) may leak out the side. However, if you smash the bottom layer, it all works beautifully.

    now i have admit i bought this as mostly a joke, but this thing has just been wonderful. it works best with a liquid egg product and an english muffin. the box photo has bagels in use but they are too wide. my only negatives are a lack of a timer (it takes 4 minutes to cook a sandwich so set your own timer) and it doesn't turn itself off when left on. I forgot to unplug it once and found it was still hot 8 hours later.

    I did not have great expectations for this product but thought it would be good in my RV. My husband barely cooks and breakfast is just toast if he Has to make it. This little appliance was easy for him to use when traveling alone. Very surprised. We even think the sandwiches are better than the fast food places. I expected the egg to stick but it slid right off the plate onto the lower layer without any problems.
