Top 10 Best Toastie Machines

TheKitchenBlog has researched deeply into what appliances you need for the kitchen (so you dont need to!), and this article will be going into depth about the top 10 machines to help you get the perfect toastie! This blog should help you decide which appliance is best for you.

1. Salter 3-in-1 Snack Maker

With its versatile detachable non-stick plates, this appliance is capable of making toasties, paninis and waffles. At 900W this machine is in the mid-range for power, but it can still make your food in under 10 minutes. It has a very easy user interface, such as indicator lights to let you know when it is hot enough to use. The stainless-steel plates are easy to clean but they are not suitable for the dishwasher. This machine does not have any temperature control or thickness variety, so it is not suitable for those that want to experiment more. The Salter 3-in-1 snack maker comes with 1-year warranty.

2. Breville Toastie Maker

The Breville machine does not have interchangeable plates so it is just capable of making deep filled toasted sandwiches, however, they are sealed and pre-cut. The stainless-steel sandwich plates are non-stick and easily removed, making them easy to clean especially as they are dishwasher safe. Slightly less power than the Salter snack maker (850W) this machine is still able to make a good toastie in a few minutes. The light indicators also makes it easier to know when the machine is hot enough to use. The Breville machine also comes with 1-year warranty.

3. George Foreman Grill

George Foreman grill has a very diverse capability of making toasties, paninis, grilled meat/fish, grilled cheese and more. This machine is quite low powered (760W), making it very energy efficient, but it will mean your food takes longer to cook. The grill is on a slant, allowing any fat and grease to drip straight into the excess tray, this makes the nutritional value of your food a lot higher, and it also makes the machine easier to clean. This machine is quite small, making it more suitable for individual or couple cooking. The George Foreman comes with a 2-year warranty.

This smart machine is very powerful (1600W) and can cook toasties a lot quicker. It can also facilitate healthier cooking with the integrated drip tray. This product is compact and easy to store with reversible grill plates. This product, despite being more expensive than the others, has a 5-year warranty included.

Like the other product, the power is 900w (which is plenty for any toastie) and the non-stick technology makes cleaning even easier. It's worth noting though that it is not dishwasher safe. This machine also has lights to notify when the machine is hot, making it easier for you to use. Comes with 1-year warranty.
