Our sandwich toaster has given up. The clip has been broken for ages and is very flimsy and DH put the plates in the dishwasher and they are no longer non-stick
I have looked on amazon and they all get terrible reviews. Ours was a breville and gets the best reviews but, as the clip is so flimsy, I am reluctant to but another
Can anyone recommend one please

I just bought the Ginoee d'acampo one from Argos. It's more like a grill/panini press but it's very good.

It was £29.99

I've looked at the pannini type press but do they seal the sandwich like a traditional sandwich toaster?

After having a cheapie one in Spain I bought a £5 one from Asda when when came back. I works great, seals the sandwiches and if it conks out or gets too mucky I'll just dump it and buy a new one. Used to have a breville and although it flimsier than that the results are pretty much the same.

I have a breville cow. It's terrible. I've tried re-coating the 'non stick' plates but it shreds the bread so all I get is a mess. sad

I use our George Forman for toasties, its great and v easy to clean. Only thing is it won't do the 'seal' that an actual toastie maker will.

It doesn't seal the sandwich as such nut we still have beans etc in them.

I'm making dd1 a cheese bean and ham toasting as we speak.

I also use George for toasties!

I just use a frying pan to make toasties, I don't understand why you'd need a special device?

We have just had cheese and onion toasties made on george!

Ditto for using George Forman - you don't end up with those inedible crusty bits either. Just use in the same way, butter the outside. One less appliance too, if you've already got a George, and no limits on bread size and shape.
