    This is how a typical morning works for me: I get up, cry a little, finally get ready, and then decide that I don't have time to make breakfast. By the time 10 a.m. rolls around, I am a starving mongrel monster ready to eat anything that crosses my path.


    Not to mention that once I am home after a long day, the last thing I want to do is a cook a full meal! Sure, a couple times a week is manageable, but I don't have the energy to cook seven nights in a row.

    And we all know that breakfast is the best part of the day, so making a decent meal shouldn't require 100% of the *little* energy we have in the morning. Well, my fellow hangry friends, with this Hamilton Beach sandwich maker ($19+) it doesn't have to!


    All you have to do is pop your ingredients in the designated pans and wait five minutes! Plus, the trays are removable and dishwasher-safe so not only will cooking be easy, but so will the cleanup. We love.

    Now, before I show you ALL the food this adorable kitchen gadget can whip up, let me point out that it has over 4,000 reviews and a 4.4-star rating on Amazon. Basically, this cooker is legit, a ton of people love it, and I would never lead you wrong!!!

    "I'm gadget-crazy and bought this on a whim, and I'm pretty impressed. I used Pam spray, English muffins, ham, cheese, and an egg. I heated it up a little past the recommended time, set a timer for five minutes, used tongs to lift up the compartments and whaddya know! A perfect, cute little sandwich! I pulled it out with a plastic spatula and set it on a tiny cookie rack to cool so the bottom wouldn't get soggy. Nothing leaked, nothing stuck. Very compact and tidy. Let the contraption cool, then rinse and wipe." β€”Amazoniac

    So what exactly can this thing cook? A classic breakfast sandwich on an English muffin, of course, for starters.

    "This thing is so easy to use and makes a great 'Egg McMuffin' in the morning in just five minutes. I plug in the machine and wait for the green light to go on and grab all my ingredients to have at the ready. Once the green light goes on, I put in the English muffin bottom, a slice of cheese with the corners trimmed so it fit's nicely, and a circle of Canadian bacon or some pre-cooked regular bacon. Then I lower the egg platform, give it a quick shot of nonstick spray, and crack an egg into it. Then I lower the top and cook it for about three minutes or so. After that minute or so, I lift the top, put a squirt of ketchup in, reassemble, and enjoy!! Buy this appliance β€” it couldn't be easier and you'll love it!!" β€”James Hall

    A sandwich made with WAFFLES:

    "My boyfriend sent me this sort of as a joke; we thought it was both ridiculous and brilliant to have a McMuffin maker in your house. Then I tried cooking with it for the first time, and holy crap, it's AMAZING. I ended up using frozen waffles for the bread; you have to trim them just a tad, but they are the perfect amount of crispy, and less prone to burning than English muffins. I love experimenting with this, and have built some truly amazing sandwiches. Waffles, eggs, avocado, Swiss, and ham. Waffles, egg, corn salsa, Jack cheese. If you can fit it into the rounds, you can make a sandwich with it. The panel under the egg slides out easily and cleanly when the egg is cooked (I find four minutes is perfect for cooked eggs with runny yolks), and the whole middle section can simply be tossed in the dishwasher." β€”Elizabeth Joy Weaver

    This reviewer got creative and made tiny pizzas!

    "I highly recommend this product for busy people in the morning who want a healthy breakfast on the go. I plug it in and let it warm up while I grab all the ingredients I need. Putting the ingredients in is easy peasy, and then I am able to go finish getting ready for work while my breakfast cooks. It creates a perfect grab-and-go breakfast sandwich. I even made a pizza sandwich for dinner one night and it was delicious!" β€”Lisa

    AHH, lil' bb pancakes!

    "I was quite skeptical of this little item. I received it as a gift and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS LITTLE GEM. As a matter of fact, I'm going to order a second one because we are a family of seven and it takes too long to wait for all of us to have our sandwiches. The cleanup of this machine is a breeze. It comes apart and you can wash the middle sections. I have made breakfast sandwiches and frozen them. I have made English muffin sandwiches, pancake sandwiches (using pancake batter), sandwiches with hash browns. I would highly recommend this little gadget. Saved us lots of money and is much healthier than buying breakfast sandwiches. I usually make them once a month to freeze for the kids to grab when they want them." β€”Tracey L.
