Toast-coffee combo just enough to get out the door

The Toastmaster Cool Touch Toaster Coffee Maker Combo simplifies the morning ritual, but that might not be enough when it comes to getting through the morning.

Mornings made easy. Bed Bath & Beyond

There are two things that matter most during busy mornings: coffee and food. And the second one is a bit of a stretch. However, as they say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so it is usually a good idea to have something along with the morning cup of joe. For many of us, this means something that requires little or no thought to make. Something like toast.

The Toastmaster Cool Touch Toaster Coffee Maker Combo simplifies the morning routine by boiling it down to where just the essentials are taken care of. Combining a toaster and a coffee maker, the combination appliance caters to those who know exactly what they need in the morning. Capable of toasting bread that is either thick or thin, the toaster section features foolproof (meaning morning-proof) operation with simplified controls. The 10-ounce-capacity coffee maker includes a permanent basket, so there's no need to root around for any accessories while still battling the morning fog.

While every combination appliance supplies its own brand of convenience, those that handle mornings are quite often the most appreciated. Considering that this combination appliance even comes with its own ceramic mug, the all-in-one nature of this machine is evident. However, with the ability to only brew one cup of coffee at a time, you may want to plan on visiting the coffee shop as your first stop of the day. At least you'll have had some breakfast, though.

For basic lighting needs, this bulb looks like a solid pick, but its dimming performance leaves a lot to be desired.
