What Is a Sandwich Maker?

Sandwiches are widespread and highly appreciated all over the world. A common sandwich looks like two pieces of bread filled with dainty ingredients. But a variety of sandwiches is unlimited as you can put almost anything inside - meat, ham, cheese, salad leaves, tuna or veggies - and use various types of bread to make your incredibly tasting sandwich. All possible limitations are confined to your fantasy and culinary creativity. The quickest and easiest way to get a savoury sandwich is to use an electric sandwich maker. This unit will heat your individually assembled sandwich and give it a nice crispy crust. And our review will help you make up your mind about the best sandwich maker appliance for your kitchen.

Meanwhile, almost no breakfast is possible without a cup of tea or coffee. Hence, it is always convenient to have a steaming hot water at hand. In this case, a water boiler or an electric kettle is a must-have appliance for any kitchen.

What Features to Compare

When you discovered that your family can't do without a sandwich maker, first of all, you need to determine the type and the number of sandwiches you want it to cook at a time. There are many different kinds of sandwiches you can cook. You can actually create your own breakfast recipes. Traditionally, however, they determine these following types:  triangle sealed toastie sandwiches and well-known Panini.

Breakfast sandwiches include bagels and English muffins filled with sausages, ham, roasted bacon, fried eggs and salad leaves. These sandwiches are very nutritious and can easily substitute for a full breakfast if you've got no time to cook a proper meal in the morning.

Sliced sandwich bread or any square cut bread will be the best choice for triangle toastie sandwiches or so-called pocket sandwiches. The sandwich maker will prepare 4 pocket sandwiches at a time sealing ingredients between the slices of bread and giving them an appetising crispy crust. 

Panini is one of the most popular sandwich types. It offers the biggest number of variations both in terms of bread and in terms of ingredients. Take your favourite ciabatta, baguette or michetta, fill it with any ingredients you like and make a delicious Panini sandwich with nice grill marks. Typically, Panini grill sandwich makers cook one big Panini at a time. But if you wish, you can make several bite-size sandwiches.

You should also consider usability features and pay attention to such things as:

  • Lid lock system is an easy way to close the appliance tightly to provide even heat-up and crispy crust of your sandwiches. 
  • Cord winding option allows you to store the appliance not only conveniently but also safely. By the way, some sandwich makers can be stored in a vertical position when not in use. 
  • Cool-touch body and non-slip feet are more about safety than convenience. Still, these features are quite useful since they prevent your sandwich maker from accidental falls and protect you from burns. 

And the third significant parameter to consider is the dimensions and coating that influence the ease of cleaning. Compact size sandwich makers will be an excellent solution for a small family and become real space savers for your kitchen. The coating of its cooking plates is extremely important for sandwich makers. Non-stick Teflon coatings simplify the unit use and cleaning. While the ceramic coating is highly durable and solid. And removable dishwasher safe plates will make the cleaning procedure almost effortless.
