    1. A breakfast sandwich maker so you can whip up your very own version of an Egg McMuffin at home in five minutes — definitely faster than waiting in line at McDonald's.

    Hamilton Beach

    The cooking surfaces are non-stick and the removable parts are dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "Nice little breakfast sandwich maker. I am still experimenting with it. Cooks fast so I need to cut down on the suggested cooking time in order to get the egg and muffin the way I like it. Clean up is easy. Spraying the plates lightly with cooking spray makes it easier to clean. It beats spending money at McDonald's or other fast food places. You can customize your breakfast sandwich with bagels, croissants, biscuits, different meats, and cheeses, etc." —doowop47

    Get it from Walmart or Jet for $24.99.

    2. A non-stick muffin tin for baking more than just muffins — we're talking mini frittatas, granola bowls, or even quiches if you're feeling fancy.


    The non-stick coating is free of BPA and PFOA, and it's dishwasher-safe. Check out some quick meals you can make in a muffin tin!

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Tasty collection at Walmart for $8.87.

    3. A microwave bacon rack that'll drain and catch the grease as the meat cooks. The best part is you won't have to wash a frying pan or deal with grease splatters afterward.


    It makes up to 12 strips of bacon at a time.

    Promising review: "This makes cooking bacon simple! Results are great, crispy bacon, no mess to clean up but the tray. I use fewer paper towels, too. I suggest laying a paper towel over the top so it does not splatter while cooking. Takes the same amount of time to cook and is delicious." —Tressa

    Get it from Walmart or Jet for $12.90.

    4. A cast-iron aebleskiver pan to make adorable and tasty Danish pancake puffs as a fun alternative to flapjacks.


    Promising review: "This is an awesome pan. It is heavy and strong. I made some aebleskivers last week. They were so light and fluffy, everybody liked them. The recipes included with it are awesome, with step-by-step instructions. They are very good hot, and preserves are better on it after it's cooled." —glogarz

    Get it from Walmart for $18.99.

    5. A 3-in-1 tool so throwing together an Instagram-worthy avocado toast would be a total breeze.


    It splits, pits, and slices avocados, and it's top rack–dishwasher safe.

    Get it from Jet for $9.99.

    6. A personal blender for preparing a quick and nutritious smoothie to drink on the way to work. Pro tip: Prepare and freeze your ingredients beforehand in separate ziplock bags so everything's ready to go in the morning.


    This personal blender comes with two 16-ounce Nutri Ninja cups (that can double as travel mugs), two sip-and-seal lids, and a 30-recipe inspiration guide. Check out eight easy three-ingredient smoothie recipes!

    Promising review: "After checking reviews on several blenders, I decided to purchase this one, and I'm so glad I did. Making protein drinks in my old blender was like drinking watered down chocolate milk; with this blender, they turn out like a milkshake, thick and creamy. Putting frozen fruit in drinks — 30 seconds of blending and it turns out great with no chunks. Love this blender and wouldn't purchase any other once I wear this one out. I use it every day. Easy to clean and doesn't take up much space on the counter so I can leave it out. You can't go wrong with this." —Rockinj

    Get it from Walmart or Jet for $29.

    7. A quesadilla maker to prove breakfast quesadillas are undoubtedly one of the most delicious things ever.


    It has a non-stick cooking surface and a removable drip tray.

    Promising review: "I enjoy having the ability to make a variety of quesadillas — including breakfast sandwiches. Easy to use!" —Richard

    Get it from Walmart or Jet for $20.30.

    8. An electric egg cooker — it will churn out a delish egg "cylinder" in a matter of minutes. Just crack an egg directly inside (and add any additional ingredients like cheese or bacon bits).


    The cooking chamber is non-stick.

    Promising review: "Bought this for my mom specifically. She got really curious about it, so she tried it last night. There were four of us in the kitchen, and we were all amused and entertained especially when it started coming out of its chamber. The eggs were cooked well! Added shredded pork and cheese, and it came out cooked and delicious. Money well spent on this one." —MylesCook

    Get it from Walmart for $19.99.

    9. A microwave omelet maker so quick and easy to use, you might abandon your frying pan forever.


    Promising review: "Takes the work out of pan-frying an omelet, easy to wash afterward." —babyfacedragon

    Get it from Walmart for $11.64.

    10. A pack of reusable toaster bags for heating up breakfast sandwiches directly in your toaster.


    Each bag is reusable up to 100 times. They're non-stick, heat-resistant up to 500°F, and dishwasher-safe.

    Get a 12-pack from Jet for $14.81.

    11. A breakfast station that can cook a full meal for the whole family in no time.


    The coffee maker brews up to four cups of coffee at a time, and the toaster oven toasts up to four slices of bread at a time. The oven tray and non-stick griddle are removable for easy cleaning. There's also a 30-minute timer with automatic shut-off.

    Get it from Walmart for $56.99.

    12. A mess-free waffle maker to suit everyone's tastes, whether you prefer traditional Belgian waffles or tear-apart waffle sticks that can be dipped in Nutella. *Drools*


    It has a deep waffle grid design and built-in overflow channel which can prevent messy drips and spills. It also comes with a pre-measured batter cup to ensure you'll add the right amount every time. The non-stick cooking surface makes for easy clean-up.

    Promising review: "So easy to use, self-regulated, lightweight, it's deep so you can't overflow it, and easy to clean. Not to mention the cool factor, that you can also cut your waffle into sticks! Great feature for kids and adults who are kids at heart. Definitely a no-brainer. A must buy! I'm so glad I went with this one. No regrets!" —LeeM

    Get it from Walmart or Jet for $22.39.

    13. A mini slow cooker so you can cook steel-cut oats overnight and wake up to a hearty breakfast.


    This Crock-Pot has a two-quart capacity, and the lid and insert are dishwasher-safe. Get the recipe for overnight slow cooker apple-cinnamon steel-cut oats (pictured) from The Yummy Life.

    Promising review: "I have three other larger Crock-Pots but can't use those for cooking smaller portions. Then I saw this Crock-Pot. It is so cute and I love the shiny black color. It heats up quickly and will be perfect for so many of my recipes. This is a great value." —p72

    Get it from Walmart or Jet for $9.99.

    14. A handy egg cooker for getting perfectly hardboiled or poached eggs every time — no ~yolk~.


    It can cook seven hardboiled eggs or three poached ones (with the included non-stick poaching tray) at once.

    Promising review: "I have never been able to get hard-boiled eggs right, i.e. without green around the yolks or underdone, etc. With this cooker, they come out perfect EVERY time! I love it! And really no clean up involved. Just wipe it dry when you're done!" —Nita

    Get it from Walmart for $12.50.

    15. An emoticon pancake pan that'll definitely put a smile on your face.


    It has a non-stick cooking surface.

    Get it from Walmart or Jet for $23.46.

    16. A compact 2-in-1 toaster oven to satisfy all your morning cravings, whether it's a leftover slice of pizza or a freshly toasted English muffin.


    The extra-wide bread slot can fit two slices of bread, bagels, or English muffin halves.

    Promising review: "I've always wanted a toaster oven. The problem was they were counter hogs. I live alone and hate to clutter my counters with appliances. Finally, I found one that fits just right. It works great! Having the toaster on top drives me to make more healthy sandwiches with toasted bread at home v.s. ordering them out. I couldn't be happier with my purchase!" —mydragon

    Get it from Walmart for $44.99 (available in two colors) or Jet for $37.99 (red only).

    17. A microwave egg maker, if your favorite topping is a sunnyside-up egg. It takes less than a minute to cook!


    Promising review: "Best microwave toy ever. I use egg beaters and add some turkey sausage, and I'm not hungry for lunch nearly as soon! I also have chopped an apple, added some cinnamon, and cooked for one minute for dessert." —Jayemsee

    Get it from Walmart for $5.99.

    18. A mini donut maker as a homemade alternative to Dunkin' Donuts.


    Promising review: "I just made two dozen mini donuts with the recipe that came with the donut machine. It took about 1/2 hour or less to make the batter and cook the donuts. They came out perfect. I timed them for four minutes. I filled the wells three times and sprayed with coconut oil the first time only. They didn't stick at all. I lifted them out of the wells with the end of a plastic spatula from my rice cooker. The top does not get too hot to lift without a potholder. I consider this a very safe and easy-to-use machine. It is time-saving and healthier than frying in oil, not to mention the money you save on the oil and on gas if you bake them in the oven. There is no guesswork. The machine does it for you. Four minutes for every seven donuts. I put them in a bowl with a cover and some cinnamon and sugar for coating." —Grandma

    Get it from Walmart for $15.87.

    19. A waffle bowl maker for making fluffy cones you can load up with elaborate toppings.


    Promising review: "Excellent product. We've made scrambled breakfast bowls and used this for the holder. It was perfect. Can't wait to make ice cream sundaes and use it as a waffle bowl container." —Dava

    Get it from Walmart or Jet for $24.90.

    20. A set of canning jars to fill with delish overnight oats for every day of the week.


    Check out four easy overnight oats recipes.

    Promising review: "I pressure can a lot on my small farm and have purchased over a dozen sets of Jarden Ball 12-pack pint jars. I use them to can healthy fast food/grab-and-go meals for my family. I have not had any issues with breakage or getting the jars to seal. I highly recommend them." —ijustwannaknow2012

    Get a 12-pack from Walmart for $8.46.

    21. An apple slicer that might motivate you to pack a healthy mid-morning snack of apple slices + almond/peanut butter.


    It can core and slice an apple into 16 pieces. It's also dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "Cuts well-shaped, thin slices. The fun part is when you flip the bottom under to do the last, complete cut and find you didn't slice a wedge of fingernail or thumb trying to push the last bit of apple through. Yeah!" —fossilipp

    Get it from Walmart for $10.94.

    Breakfast all day every day!
