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.

3. George Foreman Grill

8. Morphy Richards Mico Toastie
Another fantastic Morphy Richards product. Their innovative product allows tasoties to be made in the microwave, and not a grill. This handy little gadget is brilliant for the times where you can't get to a grill (such as work or university). Despite the size, its still able to make a toastie in just minutes. Best of all, the whole device is dishwasher safe, but if you prefer hand washing then the non-stick technology makes it easy to clean.
9. Diablo snack maker
This small but deceiving product is capable of making really quick toasted snacks. This brilliant gadget is perfect for any kitchen that has a gas/electric stove, also fabulous for camping as there is no electricity required. When you are finished, the Diablo can just go straight into the dishwasher, so there is no extra cleaning up to do. The ceramic material makes it non-stick, so it is very easy to work with.
10. Toaster bags
These original toastie bags have been a great addition to many households. They are capable of making fabulous grilled sandwiches without the need for a grill.

They are heat resistant to 250’C, meaning they're perfectly safe!
If you want something super easy to do then toaster bags or the microwavable Mico is your best bet, they allow quick and easy toasties to be made without a grill.
