3-in-1 Breakfast Maker
Convergence gadgets are all the rage these days, with various devices breaking free from their conventional functions with the hope that someday, somehow, they will become everything to everyone. So far, cell phones have been leading the way, adopting digital-camera and MP3 capabilities so quickly that they've practically become industry standards.
Well, unbeknownst to me, it turns out that kitchen appliances have been not only begrudging the overachieving successes of cell phones but also working on something to rival the multitasking masters: the 3-in-1 Breakfast Maker by Sunpentown.
Stainless steel and heat-resistant glass have been expertly fused together to form the ultimate breakfast machine. Combining a 4-cup coffee maker, nonstick frying pan, and 5-liter toaster oven, the appliance is compact (16" x 9.5" x 9.75"), affordable ($68.95), and--best of all--comes with no annual contract or hidden fees.
