Seems a little pricey. I make my own McMuffins with a skillet and a regular toaster. The only tricky part is making sure your egg doesn't spread itself too wide.... but nothing a little foldover can't fix.

I guess it a has a coolness factor for those who would show one off.

I make them myself too. I use an eggring to keep them a pefect circle shape.

You can cook the egg in a muffin tin also.

Sometimes when I'm out and about, I'll look for one of those things but I guess I'm looking for love in all the wrong places

Any good recommendations?

Any round metal eggring should work...BUT from my experience you want one that has a rubber (or somekind of non-heat) ring on the top so you can lift it without burning the crap out of your fingers. You will also need to use a butter knive to cut the egg away from the edges of the ring before you pull it off.

My little brother is one of the managers in this company. He's sending me one for Christmas.

They expect to sell 750,000 units this holiday season.

He's already given me a few smoothie makers, an ice cream maker, a sno-cone maker, apple/potato peeler... but I gave back the wheatgrass juicer (yuck).

That's actually very cool but we're totally out of counter space. I'd be tempted otherwise.

That is pretty damn cool.

I remember that my Dad took a couple of the broken McMuffin rings from the McDonalds he managed and had a welder in town fix them back up. He ended up putting them in the camper and we ended up eating homemade egg McMuffins every damn time we went camping. That was over 10 years ago and I am just now finally able to look at that sandwich without gagging.

Edited To Add:
It's less than 40.00 at Wal-Mart. That's way better than I expected.

These kitchen unitaskers piss me off. Egg & muffin toasters, rotating pizza ovens... they are all 100% unnecessary and just take up valuable counter/cabinet space.

There, I said it.

Agree. This is easily done with a skillet/pan and a toaster oven (don't even need the toaster oven either). Things I own already and can be used for many other tasks.

Waste of space and money in my opinion.

Most of the time I would agree with you. But this item has a simple and necessary function (as a toaster) that might make it worth the extra dough. For someone like me who needs to replace an older (non-wide slot) toaster, this gadget might be just right as it is not significantly more space consuming than a regular toaster and has the added benefit of producing easy Egg sandwiches without the need to breakout the pans, egg rings and spatula. Plus, I can set and go finish getting ready in the morning and have a lovely Egg Sandwich waiting...

That's the thing for me as well. I'm lucky most mornings if I have five minutes to put food together and eat it. Now if I could set this up and go get dressed, that's multitasking. As it stands I end up just hitting Burger King or McDonalds every morning, but I could be saving a lot of money over the long run with one of these.

Just do what I do: skip breakfast. By my math, I'll save over 1 trillion dollars in my lifetime.

This is cool. We need a new toaster as we are redoing our kitchen decore and this is a item that has not been switched out yet. I would use this more than using a skillet as it is easier and less mess. Can you use the egg beaters in this unit? Now I just need to find some pre-cooked turkey sausage.

Exactly. This thing is the same width as a normal toaster, maybe 1.5 times the length—not exactly a counterspace hog. Comparing this to things like the rotating pizza oven and the hotdog/bun toaster makes no sense. Two-thirds of the unit can toast bread and bagels, so you're looking at maybe 5"x7" of "wasted" counterspace.

How is using a skillet not easy to use or clean? Takes a second to pull it out and about 4 seconds to clean it.

Because of this thread I'm going to go cook an egg muffin.

No machine required, really... it's probably more of a messy clean-up any way.
