We Test Popular Breakfast Gadgets • Tasty

hi i’m katie i’m a tasty producer and today i’m going to be testing out some of the most popular breakfast gadgets we’ve got the hamilton beach dual breakfast sandwich maker then we’ve got the pancake bonanza and last but not least we have makin bacon let’s go make a lot of breakfast right here we have the hamilton beach dual sandwich maker so right on top we’ve got instructions a quick start that’s probably what i’ll use it’s got a pretty finish on the top here i think this is nonstick the quality feels pretty nice actually you know if someone came over they’d be like that lady is serious about her breakfast it just looks like a torture device a little bit can you see now is this better can you see now i love breakfast sandwiches i make them all of the time so i’m excited to try to make one in these so i have all my ingredients to make some breakfast sandwiches what i found is he doesn’t have a very long cord but fortunately i have a massive uh huge extender cord oh little beep okay oh and he’s got a little numbers i think this is for your timing yes i’m gonna open this guy up use my mitt here now the quick start directions say to put the base on the bottom so i’ve got cheese i love cheese i’m gonna do one that’s like fully loaded just like intense and then i’m gonna just do another one that is a little bit more like basic now i’m gonna put my safety mitt back on i will say this is like hot be careful um okay next we’re gonna crack eggs into this slot here we go let’s just try it okay it says in the instructions so poke the yolk at the top and then i’m just gonna try to push this around so it’s a little more even oh okay and i broke my yolk that’s okay second time’s the charm oh my gosh it’s getting very hot i will say i’m gonna poke the yolk in this one we put the tops of the breakfast sandwich on top of that don’t burn yourself people okay and then we’re gonna close it like so their recommended time four to five minutes [Music] okay four minutes on the clock this is when you can just like go put four minutes worth of makeup on talk to your children if you have them help them put on their shoes hey we got 37 seconds on the clock 36 it’s counting down like a bomb five four three two one breakfast blast off oh i thought it was a fun little song but it’s just beeping rotate the cooking plates out so okay it’s a little bit strong okay rotate it out we got a little bit of egg residue we’re rotating this other one a lot of egg residue on that guy then it says to lift them all up with oven mitts don’t forget all right so not like the easiest reveal turn off the heat the only way to turn off the heat is to unplug it oh very hot very hot i’m going to set him over there to cool down he worked a hard day’s work okay and here’s our little breakfast sammies it’s a little bit wet on the bottom but the rest of it’s very crispy okay here we go that was really good actually the pepper got cooked just enough you know where it’s not like too overcooked it still has a little bit of a crunch the egg is completely cooked through and the ham is nice and hot i’d say a minus and now let’s try the more basic one okay so here we go that’s totally hot that’s so good this taste on the second one will give like an a because there was no sogginess it was nice and crisp nice and toasty and the meat was heated all the way through i’m very impressed and surprised okay so overall for the hamilton beach dual sandwich maker it worked pretty well as far as how things tasted nothing was cold it was nice and crispy i really enjoyed the flavor and you can do so many different combinations and customize that i’d say that’s awesome the two negatives i would say is just that it’s a little bit clunky it has a lot of moving parts i did try to clean it and this does pop out but it’s just a little bit hard to get in on all those nicks and crannies so it’s not super simple or quick to clean okay we’re done with this and now it’s time to have a pancake bonanza what does that mean does anyone know what bonanza actually means a situation or event that creates a sudden increase in wealth good fortune or profits wait so if i make a bunch of pancakes my wealth and profits is gonna change i thought bananas was a party okay it’s kind of small but i guess i mean we’re not all making diner pancakes that are huge this is a normal sized pancake a nice soft grip on the handles here instructions just popped out it’s copper inside ladies and gentlemen copper which conducts heat really well flipping pancakes can be tricky you know like have you ever had it like you flip it and it like lands on the side this hopefully is going to get us like a nice pancake on both sides perfect and it’s supposed to be nonstick sometimes you have those pancakes that you’re like scraping off the bottom so let’s check it out let’s go have a pancake bonanza and i’m gonna get rich this is hot now this is ready to go i’m going to open them up pancakes are kind of messy i’m going to turn the heat now to low yeah it’s looking like it’s filled out nicely we’re getting bubbles it’s starting to really cook here i’m going to close him up and we’ll check on him in just a minute the problem i’m finding now is you can only make one pancake at a time it’s also strange that i can’t look at the progress of my pancake as that is so essential for like knowing when to flip i think you could flip moment of truth ready bam it’s a little darker than i like my pancake to be this is also a little bit awkward to be like hey you want a pancake like whoa don’t do that he looks nice it has a good shape i want to try another one with the heat a little bit lower all right nicely spreading out flip time oh that is so satisfying that’s the best part about this all right uh this guy ready to serve again dangerous why don’t we try some with some chocolate chips in it i’m just gonna eyeball this a little more better okay that looks good cooking pancakes and butter is always delicious but you don’t have to add anything to keep it not sticking from the pan i like this my only issue with it right now is that you just you can’t do that many and you’re waiting for a while and chocolate chip pancake ready to come off okay so i’m just gonna add my favorite toppings this pancake uh we’re gonna add a little butter maple syrup i’m just gonna sprinkle a few chocolate chips this guy’s pretty fluffy right in here he’s just like nice and thick and we got like oh one of our chocolate chip bits right there that looks delicious i say this did a great job they’re consistently fluffy they have a nice shape and they weren’t that hard to flip so overall these tasted pretty good i’d say like an a minus b plus i mean it didn’t change the pancake flavor but it kept them all nice and fluffy and around the same size i don’t know if it’s a thing you necessarily need unless you really care about the look of your pancake so i guess it just depends if you’re a visual person then maybe this is the thing for you so we have the original macon bacon microwave rack i just want to talk about abby the inventor she looks like she’s eight and she’s from the 90s so it looks like you just put them on a rack you put a paper towel over it you microwave it and then you eat it um okay what we’ve got here is like a dustpan it looks like so this thing holds the little rack in place and then you twist it and then i think and then you can take it out okay there’s no instructions so we’re on our own did i lose the instructions oh oh on the back you’ll never lose the instructions because it is a part of the gadget microwave use only one insert drip bars into the holes we did that great i’m gonna go get some bacon and we’re gonna test we’ve got a bunch of bacon here we’re gonna go with thick cut first i’ll do four strips on each drip rack make sure you wash your hands ladies and gentlemen okay cute it’s like hanging up your laundry it’s a fun activity this is a nightmare what happens if they’re dangling too much should we should we cut them this is not what abby wanted oh my god okay this is just horrifying but you’re getting a lot of strips done you aren’t gonna get a splatter of oil so far it’s it’s pretty gross but who knows what it’ll taste like i’m gonna cover the paper towel and then it says a minute per strip and i’m gonna do eight minutes because that’s how many strips there are right so we are less than one minute out betsy a fellow tasty producer has come by to check this out i mean when i walked in i was like she’s making bacon 100 great but was it smelling like good bacon i mean it smells like microwave bacon okay do you want to see who invented it this little girl named abby a little girl invented it kind of looks like you katie no was it from the 90s or 80s it’s the 90s okay yeah here we go oh is it plastic yeah it’s plastic in the microwave [Music] oh my god oh my god that is terrifying [Music] that is wrong it doesn’t really taste like anything i think we need to give abby another chance and do it for a little less time because maybe we just cooked it too long let’s give abby a second chance so we’re back and we’re gonna give this another try i’m not gonna cut the ends of this i’m just gonna let them live their best life okay making bacon take two four minutes we’re cutting the time in half okay and they’re definitely not cooked enough two more minutes hopefully this is the this is good and we do abby proud okay here we go okay hey the thick bacon is not quite finished it’s still a little undercooked but the thin bacons they’re looking done much nicer than the last time i’m gonna try one now [Music] it’s just missing everything you love about bacon it’s so it’s so dry it’s way too crispy it’s just chalky so i guess if you want something healthy this is healthier but it’s still bacon so if you’re gonna have bacon i feel like just enjoy it taste wise i am gonna give this like a c minus a d first time around we’ll give it an f it really was bad the first time this worked i don’t know like it worked well that it was it cooked the bacon it took the fat off so if this is something you’re considering buying maybe if you’re gonna like put it in a sandwich and like cover it with a bunch of other flavors and things but i would just say if you’re gonna have bacon it takes about the same amount of time to cook the bacon as it does in the pan so i don’t it’s not saving you that much time this i cleaned up between bacons and it’s super easy to clean but otherwise it’s i just feel like go for real bacon well thank you guys for watching us test all of those crazy breakfast gadgets um let us know your thoughts in the comments do you own one of these things and also if you have
