  • A timer of warning light will stop you burning your carefully constructed toasted sandwich.
  • Like all things buying the best quality goods ultimately means they last longer. This is also true about sandwich makers the better ones tend to be bigger toast better and require less maintanance.
  • If you suffer from anything like strain or arthritis you should be aware that a small sandwich maker can be awkward to close, depending on the amount of ingredients and size and thickness of the bread. Consider a sandwich press.

Breville VST004 2 Slice Sandwich Toaster Review

Breville is a leading brand for small kitchen appliances. They are so successful that the name is synonymous to sandwich toasters and toasted sandwich machines. We have reviewed the Breville VST004 Sandwich toaster as its one of the most popular models on the market and so you can make your mind up whether this is machine for you.

This 2-slice toastie maker weighs in at 2.31 kg and measures 22.5 x 27.5 x 11cm. It’s ideal for home and office kitchen use. This Breville is easy to clean, neat, and can easily be stored without getting scratched.

A common concern for toastie lovers is that the sandwich ingredients will spill out the sides whilst cooking. This is caused by machine having shallow trays, which tend to limit the amount of filling you can put in your sandwich. In the VST004 this does not happen. Some reviews have commented that this unit has shallow trays, which can limit you if you want make adventurous sandwich. Large items like eggs, sausages or meatballs might not allow you to seal the machine. The unit is quite flat so it’s really suited for the usual ham and cheese toasties.

Some users say the plastic “clips” that hold the plates on can burn easily so be careful!  Some say the automatic cutting feature does not work as promised. Although there are marked lines, this Breville will not slice the sandwich for you. You have to cut your sandwich to fit on the tray areas.

Some users realized that the outside part of this sandwich toaster easily gets messy, and certain parts become oily and clogged up with bread crumbs, so cleaning it is a bit tricky particularly the round back part. On the other hand, the removable plates, cool touch handle and the non slip feet make this sandwich toaster easy to clean, and safe to use.

Priced at around £26, you will not regret owning one, although the downsides slightly overshadowed the good points, overall, you’ll get that perfect toasted sandwich.

Some of the great features of this 2 Slice Sandwich toaster:

  • Removable dishwasher safe plates
  • Non-stick plates
  • Cut & seal system
  • Stands upright for storage
  • Cord wrap and non slip feet
