The Egg Gadgets That Will Make Your Mornings Easier

We all deserve a little ease with our breakfast.

There are way too many kitchen gadgets on the market these days. Most of them are things we never need. Some are things we could use, but they’d just sit in our kitchen drawers taking up space. And then there are the ones that we didn’t know we needed so badly until we got them.

Those are the cooking tools we have for you today. And not just any gadgets, but gadgets that will help you cook better eggs.

We have found gadgets that’ll make perfect poached eggs, help you eat soft boiled eggs like a pro, and for making the perfect breakfast sandwich. While no one needs this countertop contraption that separately cooks all the elements of a breakfast sandwich for you ― that is, after all, what a skillet is for ― an egg ring is a nice touch to making a great egg sandwich at home. We have that for you below.

Without further ado, here are the cooking tools you actually should get to make your mornings easier and full of great eggs.
