Hello Kitty Brunch, Hello Kitty Pop-Up Toaster plus Giveaway

[Cornell Hello Kitty Pop-Up Toaster] Hello Kitty Brunch
Few weeks ago, I received two very kawaii Hello Kitty print toasters from Cornell to do a review plus a giveaway for our readers. The toaster has a very eye-catching red and white design which brings smile to anyone who used it. Furthermore this pop-up toaster also enable you to have a Hello Kitty print on the toasted bread too.

So with the long Easter Weekend instead of bunny brunch we decided to have Hello Kitty Brunch whereby I could test out the lovely toaster.

Hello Kitty Pop-Up Toaster
This Hello Kitty Pop-up Toaster (retail price: SG$59.90) comes with a few functions such as: reheating, defrosting, auto pop-up and auto shut-off. And with the electronic browning control it also allows you to decide just how crusty and golden brown you want your bread to be. Between there is also a cancel function below the setting knob that enable you to cancel the toasting process if the toast is getting burnt. As for easy cleanup, there is also a slide-out crumb tray provided at the bottom to toaster plus a red cover lid that helps to keep dust or insect out whenever the toaster is not in used.

~ To get a visible Hello Kitty Print, I would recommend you to adjust the setting to 3 for the first try and remember to position the bread in the center of the toast where you can see the hello kitty stencils.

2 Egg
2 Tablespoon Fresh Milk

A Few Cherry Tomato
A Few Strawberry

Step-by-step on how to toast the bread
1. Toast your sandwich bread in the Hello Kitty Pop-up Toaster on heat setting 3 while working with the rest of the ingredients.

Step-by-step on preparing the ham, eggs and mushrooms.
2. Using a small frying pan, lightly pan-fry the ham on both side for 20 seconds remove and set aside.

3. With the same pan preheat 1 tablespoon of oil before cracking in one of the egg. Next using a small spoon to carefully spoon the hot oil over the whites area to cook it gently for a minute or so before spooning the oil over the yolks to help them set on the surface.

4. Remove the sunny-side-up egg on plate; use a hello kitty cookie cutter or free hand (with knife) cut-out a kitty head shape from the egg then set aside.

5. To prepare the scrambled egg: Beat the egg lightly then add in milk and pinch of salt and pepper then continue to whisk it till bubbled and airy. Preheat frying pan with 1 teaspoon of butter, add in beaten egg, don't stir and let mixture cook for up to a minute or until the bottom begins to set.

6. Turn off the heat and continue gently stirring and turning the egg until all the uncooked parts become firm. Remove and shape it with a Hello Kitty cookie cutter and decorate it accordingly using strawberry.

7. Assemble the sandwich by placing a slice of cheese on the bottom slice of bread, top with some salad green, follow by ham, another slice of cheese and the top slice of bread.

8. Enjoy your Hello Kitty Brunch together with some extra berries, cherry tomato or salad greens to go with lovely sandwich. And if you prefer you could also add the mushroom inside the sandwich too.

Above is a short clip on using the Hello Kitty Pop-Up Toaster.

Alternatively you could prepare a simple Hello Kitty print toast, spread it with your favourite fruit jam, butter, nutella or etc. Pack it in a nice lunch box together with some extra fruits or cherry tomato for your kid's tea break or as your own breakfast treat.

  1. Thanks Ellena for sharing this info. May I know is it only 1 photo for each participant to participate? Can I pull up more than 1 photo?

    1. Hi Sannee,

      Thanks for your comment. Yes. just ONE supporting photo for your comment will do. Meaning max 2 draw chances per participant :)

  2. I can't believe how commercialized you are now. Your blog is full of ads, food reviews, product reviews, overseas trips and giveaways getting people to 'like your' FB page. I've been a follower of your blog since 2005 or so and you were really down to earth then, concentrating on cooking for your family, introducing homely ingredients. Unlike now, where I don't even know whether your reviews are genuine or paid. As much as I hate to, I will stop following your blog from now on. Truly disappointed.

  3. Hi Ellena, just wondering if the winner has been announced yet? Thank you
