Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. No need to tell us twice or three times. It's also the easiest meal to forget about or cheat on. The weekday morning rush usually involves grabbing a quick brekfast bar or tossing some dry cereal in a bag. No. No. No. Breakfast is hard to squeeze in on busy mornings but when it's done right, it's our favorite meal of the day. In fact, it's the meal we could eat anytime of day.

With that in mind, our editors are always on the hunt for new tools, tricks, and tips to make mealtime easier. Why? Because while we love testing and re-testing all sorts of products and recipes, it actually takes a lot to impress our mamas in the kitchen. We recently spotted this retro-inspired appliance from Nostalgia. Yes, it's bright color (it's available in fire-engine red and electric blue) won us over. But we also realized it's a multitasking time-saver. It comes fully loaded with a non-stick griddle, toaster, coffee brewer (for brewing up to 4 cups at once!), and a 30-minute timer. We think even Mama will give this compact, all-in-one breakfast center the thumbs up.
