The Courant CBH-4601R 3-in-1 Multifunction Breakfast Hub 4 Slice Toaster Oven is an all-in-one kitchen appliance designed to replace traditional toasters, coffee makers and griddle pans. Instead of buying separate kitchen appliances, this single unit will save not only a lot of money, but also some space in your kitchen.
This 3-in-1 Breakfast Hub was specifically designed to handle breakfast tasks so you can toast slices, fry eggs, and make up-to 5 cups of coffee without requiring separate appliances. Introduced in mid-2016, this is one of the latest models from the manufacturer and we will find out if this model offers a good value for the money.
Excellent Design – All-in-one Solution
Available in red color, this breakfast hub has an attractive design and great looks. Its appearance and 3-in-1 design is hard to ignore, especially the coffee jar. The build seems sturdy and promising, while the clear glass enables you to see through into the toaster oven, coffee jar and griddle pan. You can compare dimensions with a larger toaster oven and will find that this appliance is compact in size, consumes less power and weighs less.
The Courant Breakfast Hub is one of the latest models, but still lacks some features. The breakfast hub will not text you when the appliance is done with cooking or toasting, while the temperature control, precise settings, digital display and digital timer should also have been there. However, this model was manufactured after years of research and testing.
High Tech Appliance at Low Cost
Courant 3-in-1 Multifunction Breakfast Hub 4 Slice Toaster Oven has a capacity of 9 liters and it can accommodate 4 slices at a time. The timer knob turns smooth and allows the time settings of max 30-minutes. The power indicator light will start glowing once the timer counts down. The package comes with a bake pan and rack.
The crumb tray slides out nicely if you clean it regularly. An old dirt layer on this tray can make it hard to pull. Special heating elements are installed that turn hot very quickly so it’s recommended to be careful with toasts. You may require some experimental toasting in the beginning to get a good grip on the shades. The toaster oven requires 800 watts of power to work.
The Coffeemaker has the capacity of maximum 6 cups. It has a removable water tank and filter basket, which allows easy filling and cleaning. The coffee maker is equipped with an anti-drip feature to keep work surface mess-free. It has a separate indicator light installed on the power switch. The coffee maker consumes 650 watts of power.
The griddle pan is 10” in diameter and the glass lid cover will let you see through, allowing you to have a good look at the cooking process. Despite the breakfast tasks, the griddle pan is perfect for cooking a variety of food for lunch and dinner. Cleaning is as easy as a frying pan, just lift the glass lid handle and the pan is ready to wipe clean.
