The traditional, protein-packed breakfast of two eggs to start your morning tends to come with the automatic assumption that it's going to be time consuming to prepare — who wants to mess with cleaning pots and pans before starting a day of work? Eggs don't have to be reserved for slow weekend mornings, though. While it might seem unconventional to use your microwave for anything other than heating up your leftovers, they are actually great gadgets for quick cooking, too. We love using ours to make eggs in the morning. With the proper gadgets, you can whip up fluffy scrambled eggs, eggs perfectly fit for a breakfast sandwich or bagel and hard-boiled eggs for the week.


If you love to grab a breakfast sandwich from your local deli in the morning, it might be worth making one at home. With this cooker from OXO, your eggs will be scrambled or fried to the perfect shape in less than a minute. This product is designed to do everything in one gadget, so you can whisk your eggs directly in the bowl before cooking. Plus, the shape of the cooker helps cook the yolk for fried eggs perfectly.

It holds up to four eggs and takes anywhere from five to seven minutes to cook, depending on your preference. You'll be making egg salad sandwiches or enjoying a morning snack in no time.
