I’VE ALWAYS LOVED SANDWICHES. IN FACT, I USED TO FREQUENT A DELI BACK IN MY BACHELOR DAYS.
Times may have changed but I am still fond of sandwiches. I recently bought a sandwich maker to help me prepare for my family.
Sandwich makers (also called panini press) aren’t that complicated to use. You start by preheating it then putting butter on one side of the bread circle. Place the bread on the surface, close the lid then secure the lock.
It should take around 3 minutes for a lightly toasted bread to finish. Open the sandwich maker then remove the bread with a spatula.
Aside from being easy to use, sandwich makers also come in many models. Here are some top picks:
HAMILTON BEACH SANDWICH MAKER
This sandwich maker features a floating lid; meaning you can toast different sizes of sandwiches. The cooking surface is non-stick and measures 10 x 8 inches. It lacks an on/off switch so don’t forget to unplug every time you’re done with it.
You can use this sandwich maker not only in making sandwiches. You can also use this in making waffles. It has several removable waffle and sandwich plates. The plates are dishwasher-safe so cleaning should be easy. It can be stored vertically if you don’t have enough space in the kitchen.
CUISINART DUAL SANDWICH NON-STICK GRILL
Just like the preceding model, this sandwich maker can also be used in making waffles and even omelets. It can make two sandwiches at a time. It also has a non-stick surface and thus easy to clean. It comes with a three-year limited warranty.
This is what we have right now. It has enough space to make three sandwiches at a time, which makes it perfect for families. It is easy to operate, quickly heats up, and easy to clean. It has also proven to be very durable. We love it thus far.
HAMILTON BEACH BREAKFAST SANDWICH MAKER
This is more appropriate for single guys and girls as well as those who are too busy to prepare their breakfast. It can prepare a sandwich in less than 5 minutes. It’s small and compact so storage should not be a problem.
