When choosing a toastie maker, think about what you’d like to use it for. Most machines, although built to make toasted sandwiches, offer lots of other options too. Look for a grill that can cook while it’s open for an easy way to griddle veggies or meat. With faster heating than a traditional oven, you’ll have your weekend fry-ups ready in record time.

Toastie makers aren’t just for savoury foods. Some machines are perfect for making desserts, too. Choose a machine with detachable plates and you can find options like waffle makers. Or, if you don’t fancy storing and using different attachments, you can opt for a smooth plated toastie maker. These sleek machines can grill sandwiches and paninis to perfection, as well as toast croissants, tea cakes, pittas, and more.

Size matters when it comes to toastie makers. The depth of the grill plates will determine how thick your toasted sandwiches will be. The length of the machine will control how long your paninis are. And the overall size of the toastie maker will dictate how many sandwiches, waffles, or pieces of bacon you can cook at once. Most machines are easy to store regardless of their size, so choose the style that most fits your cooking needs.
