The Breakfast Machine
While visiting my grandmother last week in beautiful New Jersey, I found The Breakfast Machine
, a combination compact toaster oven, frying pan, and coffee maker all in one. At first glance, I thought it was a pretty funny combination, but it's actually quite efficient--the same heat that toasts the bread also fries the eggs. I, of course, had to take the machine apart a little, and you can see the same heating strips that you'll find in any toaster oven are the only source of heat for the frying pan.
One question, though: how are you supposed to remove the frying pan without a handle?
Once you have your breakfast machine, the next step is to hook it up to your alarm clock (see discussion here
) and you'll be up in no time!
