All right, I write about ways how to live a big life in the smallest way. That’s on the one hand fun because it activates my creativity and on the other hand it’s given by the living circumstances, such as living in a small apartment, on a boat/houseboat or in a tiny house.
So, what’s big about a little big life? Of course the big in “little big” is you, your personality, making your life big. To compliment it you can allow yourself a little luxury … such as a Breakfast station.

Well, I know, it’s another appliance on your countertop where space is precious, but … yes but it’s a compact edition of the appliances you probably have anyway sitting on your countertop.
If you can combine two important breakfast appliances such as a toaster and a coffeemaker in one and if this combo appliance even looks nice, well, then you have one of these cute Breakfast stations in front of you.
One of the best and most reliable Breakfast Stations you find by Elite Cuisine: The Maxi-Matic 3-in-1 Multifunction Breakfast Center. And I’d like to add a very beautiful one. What a sleek neat design!
What’s so great about Breakfast stations is that they actually use less space than both appliances separately. Because of their great prices they also make perfect present ideas for college students, friends who move into small apartments and for people who construct tiny houses and look for original appliances fitting their homes.
I found these top 3 Breakfast stations which I think look quite cool and serve their purpose by providing you with the most needed breakfast appliances and by saving space.

I loved the size and look of the unit. the glass lid was made well- nice and heavy. I also wanted to toast bread, the unit performed perfectly. It took about 5 minutes max to toast both sides of bread.
Terrific product! We were able to reduce counter clutter by getting rid of our old coffee pot and toaster…now it’s in one compact spot! We had guests over and they were delighted. I was already able to cook them a delicious breakfast on my first morning having it.
This product has been perfect for our family. We love all of the features and how it saves space on our counter. It’s a great coffee maker and I was impressed with the oven as well. It’s a very appealing product.

This was perfect. It works, takes little space.
I’ve had it about a week and have used both sides and it does work, we’ll see how long it lasts.
The toaster functions beautifully and for some odd reason the coffee tastes better out of this than my big honker 10 cup maker! Great little appliance.
