You don’t need to go to a five-star restaurant to enjoy a quality brunch. With the right tools, you can make stellar morning meals in your own kitchen.
Sure, standard frying pans are fine for preparing basic eggs and bacon. But there are loads of awesome gadgets that can take your breakfast to the next level.
Check them out below.
A breakfast sandwich maker.
The Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker can make a mean ham, egg, and cheese sandwich in just a few minutes. One Amazon user even describes it as “the best invention in the history of mankind.”

A oven that bakes bread and bagels.
The Oster 2-Pound Bread Machine automatically bakes fresh loaves – all you have to do is pour in the ingredients, and it will mix and knead the dough for you. The machine even has a setting for making bagels – after it kneads the bagel dough, you let it rise in the machine for two hours, then form the round bagel shapes and bake them a conventional oven.

A see-through toaster.
You’d never need to worry about burnt toast again with the Dash toaster, which lets you see your bread through the glass. It’s almost too simple – just take the bread out when you see it reach that perfect golden brown.

A bowl that keeps cereal from getting soggy.

A contraption that makes eggs, bacon, coffee, and toast all at the same time.
- Nostalgic Electrics
If you want to cook your eggs, bacon, and toast separately yet at the same time, look no further than Nostalgic Electrics’ Breakfast Station. It even brews four cups of coffee on the side while the food cooks.
Because the device prepares each breakfast item independently, it ensures that all three are perfectly cooked and hot when you remove them.

A griddle that makes pancakes or Belgian waffles.
This Black and Decker griddle features reversible grill plates that can be pressed together to make paninis or breakfast sandwiches, or folded open to create flat space for cooking pancakes or eggs. The plates also flip over to make perfectly-shaped waffles.

A waterproof timer for boiling eggs.
Deciding when to remove your eggs from boiling water always involves a guessing game. But the Norpro Egg Rite timer measures the water temperature and changes color as the eggs turn soft, medium, and hard. That way, you can cook hard-boiled eggs perfectly every time, without wondering whether they’re done yet.

A clever tea infuser.
If you prefer tea over coffee in the morning, Mr. Tea can infuse fresh tea leaves into hot water. Since it hangs on the side of your mug, you can easily remove it when you reach the strength you desire.

A bagel guillotine.
Bagels are notoriously difficult to cut through – inexperienced bagel slicers risk cutting their fingers as they guide the knife through. With the Hoan Bagel Guillotine, however, you can easily cut bagels without any mess – and wind up with perfectly even halves.
