  • 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

Breville Toastie Maker Review

We have just tested the new Breville Sandwich Toaster we are extremely pleased with the results.

Breville TR40 Sandwich Maker

First off it looks great in my kitchen, some of the others can look a little plastic

It takes about five minutes to heat up, there is no locking mechanism so no fiddly clamp to seal the edges. It doesn’t seal the bread so you may need to be careful if you fill it with lots of ingredients.

The toasting grills are really good and heat the bread evenly. It took approximately 6 minutes to toast our cheese and tomato sandwich which tastes  absolutely delicious. We think this has something to do with the air being able to reach the ingredients, but we are not scientists.

The price is quite expensive but we feel it worth it for a Breville. You can only really fit two sandwich on at once, so if you have many mouths to feed, I wouldn’t go for this one. However we are going to use this to make other types of paninis and toasted bagets in the next week so it pretty versatile. Its looks just like the sandwich grills you see in coffee shops and tastes better as its much cleaner! Only thing is you have to make the sandwich yourself. we bought our from Amazon as delivery was free. Take a look here it might be still in stock, tr40 sandwich maker.

Guide to the Sandwich Maker

The modern date Sandwich maker was invented in the 1970s by John O’Brian. His company Brevillle adopted the inspiration from early Jaffles a Belguim implement for toasting over a fire or stove. The early days of toasted sandwich were very messy as the early machines could seal the sandwich and stop the extremely hot ingredients breaking in the hands of the diner. John patented the design to seal the edges resulting in the product you see today. A typical sandwich maker consists of two hot plates powered by an electrical coil. The modern design has stayed more or less true to the original models. With the addition of thermometer dials, lights to show the unit is hot enough and more lately deeper filled trays to allow more geneorous portions in the sandwichs.
