The Best Breakfast Gadgets

By Tom Pritchard on at

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, as the saying goes. Even if you don't agree, you can't deny that breakfast food is pretty damn delicious. It is the best food. Except maybe a pizza after excessive drinking.

You want to make sure you have the best breakfast, right? So make sure you have all the right gadgets to make yourself the ultimate tasty breakfast.

Self-Stirring Mug, £3.40

The ultimate lazy kitchen gadget, or a tool for saving yourself the hassle of washing up a spoon. It's pretty self explanatory what it does. Just add all the ingredients for your morning cuppa, press the button, and you're good to go. It's even got a lid, so you can enjoy it on your morning commute. [Buy it here]

Breakfast Sandwich Maker, £95

You could head down to McDonalds to grab yourself an Egg McMuffin for breakfast, or you could save yourself the hassle (and calories) with this handy machine. In five minutes you can cook your own, using the three layers to cook an egg, toast the bread, and deal with any meat and cheese. All the bits are removable, and dishwasher safe. [Buy it here]

Self-Heating Butter Knife, £18

We have to keep our butter in the fridge to make it last, but that does mean it's incredibly difficult to dish out in the morning. Luckily you can get your hands on a knife that heats itself up and makes it nice and easy. The great thing is it doesn't even need any batteries, just hold it in your hand to let it do its thing.

Rollie Egg Cooker, £26

Omelettes are tricky, and usually quite large. What if you could make mini versions that you could make and eat without any faff? That's what this does. Just throw in the ingredients, and the vertical grill cooks it onto a stick for you to enjoy. No messy pans, no accidental scrambled eggs, and no plates and cutlery to wash up when you're done. [Buy it here]

Minipresso Portable Espresso Machine, £48

We don't all have the time or money to stop off at Starbucks and enjoy a mug of overpriced coffee, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy something better than instant. It's all hand operated, so no need for any electricity, gas, or what have you. Just throw in the water and coffee, and you'll have a delicious espresso in no time. [Buy it here]

Latteo Milk Frother, £12

So you can make effortless espresso without fancy machines, but what about milk for cappuccinos? You don't need to go to Starbucks for that, and you don't need to shell out for a messy milk steamer. Just add your pre-heated milk, and you can froth it up in an instant. [Buy it here]

Sage Tea Maker, £140

The market is full of fancy effortless coffee machines, but what about the classic English cup of tea? There are a few machines out there, and this one does everything automatically - for the times you're too lazy to throw a bag into a mug of hot water. It has five pre-set tea settings, a custom feature, a timer (for the days you want to wake up to a fresh pot), and a warming feature to stop your brew from getting cold and nasty. [Buy it here]

Tefal Toast n Egg Maker, £32

Eggs and toast are two quintessential breakfast foods, but eggs are a little bit trickier to cook. Why not get yourself a machine that can cook both at the same time? The toaster has a wide slot for the likes of bagels and muffins, and a little pan for poaching or boiling eggs. The pan is removable, and because it's small it's nice and easy to clean.

Four portion George Foreman Grill, £20

Possibly one of the most useful gadgets out there, since what can't it do? Well quite a lot, but being a grill it does mean you can cook meat, toast toasties, cook all sorts of bready cuisine, and more. Plus, thanks to its slanted grill design it lets all the fat drain away for a slightly healthier dinner. [Buy it here]

The Masterpan, £55

Have you ever wanted to cook five things at once, but didn't feel like risking them getting mixed up or having to wash up multiple things? Here is the pan for you, perfect for all those cooked breakfasts we all love. It's a non stick pan, promises even heat flow, and a central area for grilling your favourite meat and/or fish. [Buy it here]

Breville Crêpe Maker, £22

Crêpes are clearly a lot better than the thicker American-style pancakes. They're thin, crispy, and go well with damn near anything - regardless of whether it's savoury or sweet. Don't you wish you could make your own, without having to deal with the usual mess of making pancakes?  Try this handy pancake-shaped gadget, with five settings and an easy to clean pan. Now you can have easy pancakes every day. [Buy it here]
