Cooking gadgets are rarely all they’re cracked up to be. As awesome as it is to kit your kitchen out with more flashing lights and levers than the flight deck of the Millenium Falcon, the reality is that most appliances are big, clunky and about as reusable as an old condom. What we all need is an approach to culinary tech that recognises the importance of versatility. 

Step forward, the best thing to happen to breakfast since sliced bread. In a move that promises to revolutionise how the world wakes up, famed French cookware brand Tefal has decided to make morning multitasking easier than ever. Say goodbye to scrubbing multiple pans and sweeping stale crumbs. The two-in-one “Beans on Toast” maker is here.

Officially dubbed the “Tefal Toast 'n' Egg 'n' Beans toaster”, the new gizmo is the ultimate answer to anyone who has ever felt too rushed for brekky. In addition to a two-slice toaster, the appliance also features a separate “Bean Warmer” drawer, which can also double up as an egg cooker. As the official description explains:

“The Tefal Toast 'n' Egg 'n' Beans toaster is perfect for preparing a delicious morning breakfast in half the time. The Tefal toaster can toast your bread and heat up hot beans at the same time. The easy clean dish means cleaning up will be quicker too.”

What a time to be alive.
