Breakfast Sandwich Maker Instructions
This egg cooker has 3 hot plates, all non-stick and 2 rings to allow for the sandwich to be built up. It’s easy to clean when finished with as the 2 rings and attached plate are easily removable and can go in the dishwasher if you want to, the plates are all easily wiped clean.
The breakfast sandwich maker instructions are fairly easy, start with plugging in the cooker to heat it up to the necessary temperature, the green light will go on when it is hot enough.
For a standard sandwich start with an english muffin and place one half, cut side up into the base of the unit with one ring in place, you can add cheese at this time, sliced cheese works fine and you can fold in the corners to make sure it fit’s right into the ring and doesn’t melt all over the machine.
Once you have your cheese on the bread add your meat of choice, cooked ham, sausage or bacon then lower the centre plate and top ring down, this is when you add your egg. You can crack the egg straight onto the plate, you might want to puncture the yolk and then place the second half of your english muffin cut side down onto the egg and close the lid.
Wait 5 minutes, slide the middle plate out of the sandwich, this allows the cooked egg to sit onto the meat and stack properly, then you can remove the sandwich from the machine, let it cool a little then it’s ready to eat.
The good thing about this breakfast sandwich maker is that you’re not limited to egg, meat and cheese for your filling or english muffins for the outer part of your sandwich, you can use small bagels, biscuits or pancakes, if you have a 4 inch cookie cutter you can cut out a circle from a slice of bread. The fillings can be anything you want them to be, you could even make a muffin pizza using half a muffin, a little pizza sauce and cheese on top and close the machine, it will be done in a few minutes, the perfect snack.

Customers are enjoying the fact that you can change items to make it a lower fat type of sandwich and still feel you’ve had something substantial, and they are loving how easy the non-stick coating makes the cleaning.
Some customers love it so much they wish they had bought a double.
The main negatives are the fact there is no on/off switch you have to plug in to switch it on and it can get very hot so you have to be careful when removing your sandwich or if your older children want to make their own. Some customers feel it is too much hassle and it is not worth it.
