Cuisinart Breakfast Central

Cuisinart Breakfast Central

This is a fantastic find that Hubby got for me a couple of years back. I really wanted to get into having healthy, more wholesome and well-rounded breakfasts, but I couldn’t be bothered with the time, energy or dishes that required lol. Especially during the week.

Welcome, Breakfast Central! I’m a big omelet girl (like almost daily) – it’s a great way to get your veggies into the start of the day (much better than eating a cup of peppers every morning lol). Whip up your ingredients into a bowl, and dump them into the pancake side. Done.

Not in the mood for an omelet? Ok, how bout pancakes? Or a healthy pumpkin waffle?

Turn on the heat for whichever side you want to use – there’s a dial for the pancake as well as the waffle side. I like my heat at the 4.5 mark. Turn it on and it’ll beep when it’s ready. Pour in your mix, close the lid and in about 15-20 seconds you’ll get another beep telling you to turn the iron over to the other side. Then, just let it finish cooking for a few minutes. It’ll tell you once it’s all done – flip back to the original position and lift the lid, and you’re done.

A couple of pointers:

  • right before you put your mix in, spray the plates with Olive Oil cooking spray – food will pop right out
  • once you are finished cooking, take a damp cloth or paper towel and simply wipe off the plates – they do not come out, but if you wipe them while they are still warm, they clean off perfectly
  • Have your mix ready to go as soon as the initial heat cycle is complete – the timer does not manually reset itself.
