Even though most of us say we don’t have time for breakfast, we all love it! Here are ten breakfast cooking utensils we love for making breakfast prep a little easier:
Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker: Prepare the perfect breakfast sandwich at home with this funky little appliance. You choose the ingredients you want and stack them up for a breakfast ready in five minutes. The just place the dishes in the dishwasher.
Egg Rings: Egg rings allow you to make perfectly round fried eggs ideal for breakfast sandwiches or just for a lovely presentation. Look for non-stick rings for easy clean up as well as to avoid breaking the precious, yellow yolks if you like your eggs sunny side up.
Egg Poachers: Nothing is more frustrating than trying to make poached eggs in the morning. It is a delicate balance of timing and removing them without too much water or damaging the delicate yolk. This handy little utensil sits in the pan for easy cooking and then lifts out easily draining back into the pan. It is ideal for perfect eggs beni or just poached eggs on toast. It is also one of the healthiest ways to prepare eggs as it is fat free. There are a number of brands and models from which to choose and you can decide based on the one that appeals to your sense of aesthetics, or budget.
Splatter Screen: Cooking bacon can get messy. Those little devlis splatter and splash grease for miles. A splatter screen allows your bacon to cook to crispy perfection without steaming it while keeping all that bacon fat contained in the pan. It then just pops into the dishwasher with the rest of the morning dishes.
Batter Dispenser: If you love pancakes this handy little tool makes perfect pancakes every time. It will reduce all those cooked on batter drips while offering lovely little pancakes that will cook more evenly thanks to their uniformity.
Orange Juicer/Citrus Reamer: If you aren’t a health fanatic with a juice machine on your kitchen counter but love to have fresh orange juice every now and then a hand held juicer offers fresh orange juice whenever you want it. It takes a bit of elbow grease, but it is well worth the effort.
Egg Beater: A hand held egg beater is the easiest way to mix up your omelets and scrambled eggs.
Non-stick Pan: Breakfast food sticks. Eggs, pancakes and French toast can be troublesome without a non-stick pan. As well a good non-stick pan offers a healthier way to cook breakfast with the need for too much oil or butter.
Milk Frother: If you don’t have a fancy coffee maker but enjoy a nice froth on your coffee, a milk frother is an affordable option. It’s a nice touch too when you have guests.
Non-stick Griddle: A non-stick griddle is perfect for all things breakfast from pancakes to French toast and sausages to bacon. You can look for grill styled griddles as well as a half and half style that is part flat top and half grill.
