This thing is wonderful. It does what it says and does it well. I have made egg and muffin sandwiches in the morning for the kids, and myself, before school and have not had a single problem. I do truely love this toaster. To address a couple of the negative comments I read that gave me the most pause, the new appliance smell does exist when you turn it on. That is why the manual tells you to dry run the toaster. I did mine twice and did not have any unusal smells when I cooked with it. As far as making soft eggs, who wants a soft egg on a eat as you run sandwich? I use the medium setting and have no problem.
The only draw back to how great this toaster is the fact that your egg is cooked so uniformly that when you bite into your delicious sandwich, the egg tends to slide out the other side. If you are thinking about buying this toaster, don't hesitate.
I almost forgot that it does more than just make sandwiches. It does just toast or just eggs. It has wide slots for bagels, and another little feature I love, hit the bagel button and it only toasts one side of your bagel.
-When poaching eggs and making toast at the end of the cycle the toast is cold. (I fix this by waiting until the egg is done and then toasting my bread)
-When boiling a large amount of eggs the water can seep out of the machine. (I just keep a towel handy and wipe it up)
-It is not always fun having to clean all the parts after cooking eggs. (This is more about my desire to eliminate work than the toaster)
-If not in use it needs to be unplugged. The egg part is slightly warm to the touch even when it hasn't been used.
-Makes bread very evenly toasted on both sides.
-Settings are very sensitive and give great amount of variance in darkness or lightness of toast.
-Toaster part is easy to clean with two removable bottom trays.
Other people have had problems with the egg trays losing teflon. This has not happened to us at all. Generally that happens because of metal utensils coming in contact with the surface like a spoon or a fork. You shouldn't use either one to get the eggs out. I spray it with cooking spray and flip it over and tap it on a plate. I have only had an egg stick once, and only part of it did. I always wash the trays by hand and use at the most a plastic scrubby to get grime off. Every time you cook an egg I recommend wiping it out before it cools down, it is a lot easier to clean when warm. I can't give any feed back on the return policy or customer service because I have never had a problem. I would recommend this product with out reservation.
I don't know about you, but I am not interested in operating an electrical appliance with water pooling on the counter underneath it. This thing has been gathering dust in the back of the cupboard since early 2015. DOWNGRADED FROM 5 TO 2 STARS
This is the niftiest kitchen gadget to come down the pike since . . . EVER! I love me some Egg McMuffin in the morning. But there are two problems: 1) I live out in the sticks, and the nearest McDonald's is nearly a half hour away, and 2) it gets expensive after a while. Enter the Back to Basics TEM4500 4-Slot Egg-and-Muffin Toaster. For the cost of one breakfast at McDonald's for my wife and me, we can get the ingredients to make our favorite breakfast sandwiches for a couple of weeks! They taste even better, we get them quicker, we get them faster, and we save time and money making the drive into town.
I am SUPER pleased with this product, and looking forward to using it for years to come. HIGHEST rating and recommendation!
