SOURCE: paula deen toaster with egg cooker

My egg poacher stopped working after about 18 months. I carefully took it apart while unplugged from the wall. I gently jiggled and slid the wires going to and from the egg cooker and the pc board they were plugged into. I did not force the wires (that can break them). Sometimes oxidation can occur on metal connections, so the jiggling may have made a better connection.

As a precaution, I also roughened the toaster slide button copper connections. Bare copper corrodes easily, so I thought this was a good idea to do while I had it apart. I doubt it was the problem, though, since the toaster part still worked.

Then I verified it was working again and put it all back together.

I just took mine apart. There is a small 24v relay that should switch and allow the toaster elements to come on.

If it is not staying down then there magnetic coil is not working. There is another question like this here.

Can I purchase a new poaching pan for the back to basics muffin toaster and egg poacher?


Yes! West Bend apparently now owns Back to Basics; you can order replacement pans from http://www.westbend.com/finditem.cfm?itemid=3733

Tip

Keep your eggs from sticking to the pan


I always use a little Crisco or Pam spray (spray over the sink, not on the unit). This keeps the egg from sticking.

I have a tefal TT550015 toast 'n' Egg and have no instructions on how to use it. Please advise


To use the egg side only, fill the measuring cup with the correct amounts of water. (One side is for boiled eggs, one is for poached eggs.) Pour the water into the basin at the bottom. For boiled- Place 1-4 eggs in the tray with the four holes. Use the sharp thing at the bottom of the measuring cup to pierce the egg shell. Place the lid over top, and hit the 'egg' button. When the light on the button goes out, remove the lid. For poached, grease the pan. Spray/ butter, whatever. DO NOT rely on the non-stick. The thick black tray for boiling eggs goes on first. With the egg in the greased pan (scrambled or whole) place the pan into the unit. There are four plastic pieces in the boiling tray to show you where it goes, the handles aligned. The round tray, with the square holes in it, can be used to warm pre-cooked meat.This is optional, and that tray goes on top. Place the lid over the top, and press 'egg'.

WARNING: this cooks by steam, and any remainder can cause burns. Be careful when removing the lid. Same goes for the product. The boiled eggs should not be touched directly.

To make an egg sandwich, load the egg side and the bread/english muffin/bagel into the toaster. Press the 'egg/toast' button BEFORE starting the toaster. The toaster will start on a timer so that the egg and toast will be done at the same time. When the toast pops up, you are good to go.

Note: there should be no water afterwards, maybe a little oil if you cooked meat. Hard water residue is easily removed with vineger and a paper towel.

Egg poacher tray


Pans, if they are in stock, can be ordered, but they will peel just like the first one. I refuse to pay $5 plus shipping for a faulty product. If the pan is that replaceable, it should be available retail in the stores. I finally just scrubbed what I could of the peeling coating off and (surprise!!!) the pan does not stick any more than it did with the coating. It doesn't look as nice, but save your money - just keep using the pan. I love the toaster, but the company has a great money maker in this faulty item and that dissapoints me that they settle for such mediocrity. At minimum, the company could make the pans more readily available for those who are concerned about the aethetic appearance of the poacher pan or develop a nice looking pan without the apparently useless coating. I use a nonstick spray and the egg comes right out.

NEED EGG POACHER TRAY


http://www.focuselectrics.com/catalog.cfm?dest=itempg&itemid=4155&secid=53&linkon=category&linkid=98

$5.00 plus shipping or somewhere around $10. How much is a new toaster? I just scrubbed the remaining coating off my replacement pan that also peeled and it works fine. $10 is too much money for something that will peel just like the original. Too bad they won't make them available in stores that sell the toasters and at least save the consumer shipping.
