Maybe you’re looking to cook a breakfast sandwich in one neatly stacked step. Maybe you love bacon so much, you want an appliance that’s been specifically designed to perfectly crisp the strips every time. Regardless, these decked-out gadgets can hardly be called toasters: They do so much more than merely crisp up bread.

3-in-1 Breakfast Station

This piece is great for those who are short on counter space. You can easily swap three appliances for this 3-in-1 breakfast station. It includes a four-cup coffee maker, nonstick griddle for eggs and breakfast meat, and a toaster oven that accommodates up to four slices of toast.

Online user reviews praise its versatility, citing pizza, burgers, and grilled cheese as a few successful dishes. The only drawback? If one of those three pieces breaks, it's still sitting on your counter.

Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker

Sure, this may look like a superfluous purchase at first glance—how hard is it really to whip up a breakfast sandwich? But with more than 3,100 reviews on Amazon and an average 4.5 star rating, it’s worth a closer look.

One reviewer raves, “works better than I thought it would!” Designed to make fresh breakfast sandwiches you can grab and go, it might just keep you from that drive-through window. All removable parts are dishwasher safe, and all surfaces are covered with a nonstick coating.

Pop-Up Hot Dog Toaster

For the hot dog aficionado, this toaster cooks two regular-size or extra-plump hot dogs and toasts two buns at a time. One reviewer swears this contraption “is not simply a hot dog heater upper,” but leaves “ awesome grill marks on the hot dogs!”

Rubbery, soggy hot dogs, be gone: The quick sear ensures that hot dogs are snappy and charred every time, and the bun toaster leaves the inside of the buns soft while nicely crisping the outside.

Crispy Bacon Grill

In theory, this appliance should send bacon lovers into blissful rejoice. It’s a specially crafted bacon grill that claims to cooks up to six strips of any thickness bacon in minutes. The vertical cooking design drains grease into a slide-out drip tray for easy cleanup and less greasy bacon.

However, the only thing saltier than the bacon are the reviews of the product. One disgruntled customer said the machine “really just slaughtered my bacon,” leaving “one end way overdone and the other end almost raw.” With a slew of similarly brutal one-star reviews, we’d recommend staying away from this product until they address the uneven cooking issue.
