Back To Basics Toaster Reviews

| November 25, 2018

Most of the Back to Basics toasters are instantly recognizable as they’re not really shaped like toasters at all (or if anything, shaped like odd toasters). Instead, the Back to Basics line of toasters incorporate a toaster with egg cooker – making it a 3-in-1 device that is able to toast bread, cook eggs, and heat up pre-cooked meat.The egg toaster will even let you choose whether you want to poach, scramble, or boil your eggs – making it the perfect all-round breakfast cooker.

​Back to Basics Toaster Features

​Although each Back to Basics toaster differs from the next – they all share the same core features insofar as they are a toaster with egg cooker combination. All of themincorporate a toaster with a side-tray that can be used to poach or scramble eggs.Other trays can be used for different purposes – such as the steamer tray to boileggs, or the heater tray to heat up pre-cooked meat.

​The controls of the egg and muffin toaster are relatively simple and consist of atouchpad to control whether to use just the toaster, just the egg cooker, or both –and a dial to set the brownness of the toast. To use the Back to Basics egg and muffin toaster you just need to place your ingredients and select the appropriate option on the touch pad and it will take care of the rest.
