Tired of having a boring bowl of cereal for breakfast or just grabbing a granola bar on your way to work? Did you know it can be just as quick and easy to make a breakfast sandwich?
This Hamilton Beach Dual Breakfast Sandwich Maker (on Amazon) creates customized breakfast sandwiches in just four steps and 5 minutes. The dual breakfast maker makes two sandwiches at once so you can eat one now and pack one to go or feed other people in your household. Simply layer the ingredients, close the lid and set the timer.
This appliance makes it easy to build a standard breakfast sandwich using bread like an English muffin and pre-cooked meat like Canadian bacon (plus an egg). However, the maker also comes with a recipe booklet that lets you create sandwiches for those on keto and paleo diets, plus some that have extra protein if you need more of a boost.
After more than 19,000 reviews so far, the sandwich maker has a total rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars, with 79% of customers giving it a full 5 stars. Customers say it is easy to use, easy to clean and so quick that it can be used every day.
One reviewer who gave it a full 5 stars says it’s faster than waiting at the drive-thru and they especially like that you can add as many ingredients as you want.
“I can make two English muffin or frozen pancake breakfast sandwiches, eat them, drink a coffee, and clean up in under 15 minutes start to finish,” they wrote. “If you get maple syrup, frozen pancakes, and frozen breakfast sausage patties (which you can pre-cook and store for a couple of days in the fridge) you can make a replica of a certain griddle breakfast sandwich that tastes as good or better.”
Only 2% of customers gave the sandwich maker 1 star. Those reviewers say they had trouble getting it to warm up enough to cook the egg. Some reviewers say the solution to making sure the eggs cook is to use small or medium eggs, as large ones take too long. A few people said it leaks and others note it doesn’t have rubber feet, so it slides around on the counter.
If you don’t have the space for a double sandwich maker, or simply don’t need to make two sandwiches at once, Hamilton Beach also has a single sandwich maker for $27.
