Back to Basics 4 Slice Toaster &If you're like me, you crave every extra minute that you get to sleep in. Snooze alarms are used multiple times in the morning. Everything you need for your day is set out the night before, so when that dreaded 10th snooze alarm goes off, the only thing you have to do is roll out of bed, grab everything (especially coffee), and trudge out the door like every other zombie that wishes, just for that moment, that they were a morning person.

And if you're like me, packaged breakfast foods start to get really old, really fast. I kept thinking, "I don't have time for anything else." That was before I replaced my toaster with this Back To Basics Toaster & Egg Cooker. No more frantic runs to the nearest fast food chain to pick up the latest McSandwich I'm craving. This way, I get to choose the kind of foods I put in my body.

With this highly-rated 4-slice toaster, I don't have to take time out of my morning routine to get a healthy breakfast in my belly. It toasts up to 4 bread items -- toast, bagels, English muffins, and croissants -- and cooks eggs in under 4 minutes. The eggs can be poached, scrambled, or hard boiled. Underneath the cooker are two warming trays for heating up pre-cooked meats like sausage or Canadian bacon.

The technological specs on the 4-slice model are impressive, but they don't detract from it being very easy to use. Each function operates independently from the other; I don't have to make eggs and toast at the same time. The bagel setting toasts just one side of the bread, and the defroster works great on breads that I forgot to take out of the freezer the night before. I also like the "lift" on the handles -- this makes it easier to get smaller English muffins out of the slots without burning my fingers.

Other handy features include a removable crumb tray, a space in the back to wrap and store the electric cord, an exterior that's cool to the touch, and a one-year warranty.

If the 4-slice model is a bit too big for your liking, no worries -- Back To Basics makes a 2-slice toaster combo as well.
