Today, we’re going to
test one of the unitaskers of all unitaskers, the Hamilton Beach
Breakfast Sandwich Maker. – [Female Narrator] How do you breakfast? I barely have time for coffee. Chocolate doughnut? – [Female Narrator] Now
there’s a better way. The Hamilton Beach
Breakfast Sandwich Maker. Choose your bread, add toppings, and an egg. In just five minutes, breakfast is ready. And today we’re going to test that against something else that’s wild and crazy, a pan, that also makes
breakfast sandwiches. We’re gonna test time,
taste comparison, and price. The first thing we gotta
do is plug this in. Now we’re supposed to
spray down all the rings with non-stick cooking spray. We close the unit, and we’re gonna wait until the green light comes on. Have our ingredients here, which is, an English muffin, a piece of American cheese, an egg, and then some Canadian bacon. Been about a minute, still
waiting for this unit to go. I’d love to making a breakfast sandwich. We’re over two minutes. Maybe this is good in the office. There it is, around three
minutes and ten seconds. We lift these little flaps
up, and on the bottom we’re gonna put the
bottom half of our bread. On top of that, we’re
doing Canadian bacon. And then on top of that, we’re gonna crack an egg, and I guess on top of this, we put our cheese. And then on top of
that, put the other half of the English muffin. And then we close it, and we wait, for four to five minutes. Two minutes, two more to go. Four and a half minutes, we’re gonna slide this disc out. Then we’re gonna lift up all these parts. And there’s your breakfast sandwich. Now, let’s take this same thing, and just make a breakfast sandwich. Non-stick cooking spray goes down. And we’re gonna see how long it takes for this pan to heat up. In about half the time,
our pan’s ready to go. And just like this, I’m
gonna do it all in one pan, so my egg goes in, ham, goes in. We’re about a minute in, got a nice little toast
ring on my English muffins. Also at a minute in, I got some nice color on my ham. The egg I’m just letting sit for now, I can flip that over too but, I like my egg like just like that. At this point I have my
American cheese ready to go. Boom, bottom, toasted. My nicely browned ham goes on top, I’m just gonna throw that in there. The residual heat will take care of it. My egg, goes right on top. This, had about a three minute heat up. This, had a minute and a half heat up. This, four and a half minute cook time. This, two and a half minute cook time. I mean, the egg and
muffin have become one. Now, we gotta wait for this to cool down, so we can clean it. So you take all these
parts off, slips out, and then you gotta go take this to the washer. You gotta clean inside this ring, you gotta clean both of this. Just gotta wipe down this stuff. Listen, I thought this
was gonna stick in there and the egg wasn’t gonna slide out. It worked, it definitely
worked, is it like, is it the platonic ideal of a breakfast sandwich? As Nick Solares would say, no, it is not. But, a breakfast sandwich none the less. I mean it does have that wall of, God that egg gets rubber. So let’s take a bite. It’s an egg sandwich, that’s for sure. Ham’s not great, just because, you got no real color on it, it just felt like it was steamed because it was sitting on top
of the bread the whole time. This weird thing about this egg cooked out around the bread, I mean this egg is, it’s like a rock. Alright, now a regular guy right here. We got some color on the egg, some people hate that. Look at all the crispiness
on the bottom, I like it. And then the ham there. There’s really no comparison here. The color you get on the ham when it gets the brown,
the Maillard reaction, it brings out a deeper flavor of the meat. And I got textures of egg, I also got like, a nice
beautiful yolk, versus the white. Weirdly enough, I actually taste more depth of the English muffin, because it actually browned and toasted. This is a cooked egg sandwich, this is just a heated egg sandwich. So this guy ringing in at 34.99 retail, it takes longer to cook, you don’t get browning action on your meat and/or bread item. And it has a multi-ring clean up. You have to clean it
inside of all these rings and you gotta clean this, versus the same ingredients, a pan, that you already have. This does not save you time. I guess the one move that it saves you, is that little slide out feature because then you just
stacked the sandwich. Should you do this? Not a chance in hell. For unitaskers, and other things that
are basically hogwash, click here. You ever had a warm protea chip, it’s so much better. It’s kind of like, all bread is good, but like warm bread out
of the oven is like. And also, these.
