West Bend Egg & Muffin Toaster One way to get a healthy, filling breakfast each morning is to get up early and cook all your proteins and breads from scratch. But while that may be the best-tasting way to go about your morning, chances are it's not the most feasible thing to do day after day. As much as I'd like to say I could do that every morning, I know deep down there's no way I'd actually do it. I love sleeping in too much! A toaster like this West Bend Egg & Muffin Toaster can really come in handy, in that case.

This West Bend 2-slice model is very similar to one we've seen by Back to Basics, and the two are very similar. Both have the ability to toast several different kinds of bread products with adjustable levels of light-to-dark doneness. It can cook one egg inside, either soft or hard poached, scrambled, or hard boiled. I like the high-lift toaster handles, always a bonus for me since I really don't like trying to weasel a piece of toast out of a pair of piping hot toaster slots. And the West Bend retail price is a bit less expensive, too.

But, as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. Just a couple of features didn't make it into the West Bend's design, such as a defrost button and a "keep warm" function -- a nice thing to have when you want to keep the meats warm while the toaster is still working on those English muffins. The slot design is thinner than some models, so extra thick bagel slices might not fit inside. Most new users also warn against a plastic smell when the toaster is first used. Like most electronic appliances, this smell may be bothersome at first but will go away after a few uses.

The non-stick egg cooker is a favorite feature of the West Bend. It's even easier to use after adding a bit of cooking spray inside. Or, for a low-fat option, use pre-cut pieces of parchment paper instead.
