Between our obsession with cold foam and cake pops, the urge to spend unnecessary money during a daily coffee shop trip is strong. One of the more popular items behind the counter at places like Starbucks are the sous-vide egg bites, which offer a protein-packed, grab-and-go option when you're looking for a quick breakfast or snack.

But, with continually rising prices impacting our spending habits, many folks are trying to transition from eating out to cooking at home. Enter the Dash Deluxe Sous Vide Style Egg Bite Maker, an adorable, highly rated tool that makes DIY egg bites come together with very minimal effort.
Here's how it works: Water gets poured onto the heating plate below the egg cups, which creates a steam that cooks the bites evenly with a sous-vide-style result. All you have to do is whisk the eggs, pour them into the provided cups, add any toppings you'd like, and close the lid until they're ready to eat.
Compared to real sous-vide egg making—which can take up to an hour—this machine provides results in just 10 minutes. (Perfect for weekday breakfasts!) You can choose to make four two-inch bites at once, or one larger egg that's great for breakfast sandwiches.
And it doesn't stop at brunch—this can be used to make desserts like mini cheesecakes and custards, too. The appliance also comes with a recipe guide to help get the juices flowing on new ideas.
Similar to Dash's other mini makers (which we love, by the way), this appliance is conveniently sized for small kitchens, crowded cabinets, and even dorm rooms. It's been praised by 10,000 Amazon reviewers for its easy functionality, cleaning-friendly nonstick surface, and tasty results—which some even claim are better than Starbucks. Plus: You don't have to wait in line.
