    The Best Sandwich Toaster 2020

    1.
    Sage The Perfect Press

    Sage The Perfect Press

    The aptly named Perfect Press offers the ultimate place for you to press your toasted sandwiches. It isn’t the first time that Sage have created an appliance to make it high up on our lists, and there are a number of reasons why this sandwich toaster deserves its place.
    It doesn’t have to be a selfish snack; you can make a tasty sandwich for you and a friend with the ability to cook up two portions at once. Ideal if you’re cooking for guests or a family lunch.
    Because it is a flat bed design as opposed to dedicated sandwich sections, you also have the possibility of making paninis and using other forms or bread, from sourdough to larger slices of Warburton’s Toastie which others may struggle to fit in. There is also a floating hinge in case you like to pack everything you can find into the toastie and would otherwise struggle closing the lid. Crush control applias the perfect amount of pressure without squashing the contents.
    The plates are perfectly non-stick so it is simple to clean, and it can be stored vertically when you’re done.

    Breville Deep Fill VST041

    Breville Deep Fill VST041

    Breville are industry leaders when it comes to sandwich toasters and this Deep Fill Toaster accentuates that point. It is reasonably priced for a higher-end toastie maker, yet still has everything you need to rustle up the perfect lunch or late-night snack.
    You can prepare two portions at once, and because each slice of bread has a dedicated segment, the sandwich is cut and sealed as it toasts, keeping the filling securely inside.
    The cooking surface is non-stick, so won’t cause a mess. Plus it is also non-greasy, so you can safely oil and prepare it without this being transferred onto your sandwich. The plates can be removed when it comes to washing them, and they are dishwasher safe for ease.

    Tefal Snack Collection SW852D27

    Tefal Snack Collection SW852D27

    This all-round Tefal sandwich toaster comes in a stainless steel finish with a black trim. It is a robust appliance that enables you to cook up two portions of toasties and has a sufficient power outage of 700-watt.
    You can also utilise this toaster for more than merely toasting your favourite sandwiches. While primarily for this, there are 14 additional sets of plates you can collect, so you can make everything from donuts to bagels. It would therefore be the ideal product if you want several snack makers but only have space for one or two in storage.
    When storing, the plates can all be popped into a box so they are kept together, and the actual toaster can be stored upright to save some space. There is a light on the top of the unit to let you know when it is hot enough to go, and a locking latch will keep everything in place when toasting so it doesn’t move and become a mess.

    BREVILLE VST025 Cafe-Style

    BREVILLE VST025 Cafe-Style

    In a cafe, it makes more sense to have one unit which can toast traditional toasties, paninis, baguettes, ciabattas and croissants. This is the basis on which Breville have created this sandwich press, too.
    The flat non-stick plates can fit sandwiches of all shapes and sizes, and all you have to do is place them within the press and lower the lid. No complicated fitting or squeezing it all in.
    You can store it upright, and the lockable lid ensures it remains in place and is easy to bring out again when you need it. Breville made the first ever sandwich press in the 1970’s, and they continue to lead the industry.

    Breville VST078 Sandwich Toaster

    Breville VST078 Sandwich Toaster

    Once again, we have included another Breville sandwich toaster, this time for less than £20. It comes with lots of power too at 740W, so is going to get the job done in good time.
    The reason for this toaster making it into our top 10 is down to the quality to value ratio. It is one of the most affordable products that can easily fit onto your worktop surface, yet is also within the reach of those not wanting to spend over £30. You can also buy it in black, red or white, to match any other accents in your kitchen.
    Non-slip feet, cord storage and a locking lid make it comfortable to store any way you wish, even upright. The plates are coated in a unique DuraCeramic formula, so there is little chance of the bread and contents sticking and it is easy to wipe clean at the end once cooled. Because of the dedicated slots, it also benefits from cut and seal technology, for ideal toastie pockets with contained filling.

    VonShef 3 in 1 Sandwich Toaster

    VonShef 3 in 1 Sandwich Toaster

    If a sandwich maker isn’t good enough for you then why not check out this 3-in-1 option? You no longer need to waste your valuable kitchen storage space on multiple appliances if you also want a waffle maker and grill. Just swap the plates about, and you’re good to go.
    Snack makers such as this aren’t exactly rare, but what is rare is that they come in at such a good price. For under £30, you have an item which can help whether you have a craving for bacon, toasties or something sweet. As the plates are removable and changeable, it also means they are easy to wash by hand.
    The reason it falls under the other multi-use toastie makes on the list is because it isn’t the best toasted sandwich, waffle or grill money can buy, and you can tell it is a budget pick when using it. It still does the job though, and is perfect for novelty or fun Saturday afternoons in the kitchen.
    There are other bigger appliances that have more power but this has more than enough to write home about.

    Waring Pro WOSM2U

    Waring Pro WOSM2U

    Not a household name, but Waring have certainly created a household essential here. This brand isn’t the most well-known but after trialling what they have to offer, we are willing to vouch for this toaster.
    It is deep fill, enabling you to pack a thick sandwich full of layers of cheese, meats and extras. It has space for two big portions and as well being able to prepare a sandwich, you will also be able to enjoy an omelette, calzone and more; the instructions tell you what to do.
    There are three heat settings available and it also comes with removable plates making it very easy to clean up after use. The compact design and easy-to-use dial makes this adorable invention the perfect addition to a family home.

    Cuisinart GRSM1U Sandwich Toaster

    Cuisinart GRSM1U Sandwich Toaster

    There’s an art to making good toasties and this sandwich toaster takes the effort out of doing exactly that. It is easy to use, pretty self explanatory and gives perfect results time after time.
    It has two generous portion spaces that are quite deep, so you can pack them with layers of cheese and not struggle lowering the lid. The cooking surface is grease resistant and non-stick, so your sandwiches will come out healthily and also in one piece.
    The whole idea of this invention is convenience, and this brand have remembered that. You can adjust the temperature with one dial and there is no need to mess around with further fancy settings.
    The power level rounds it off – 1000W makes for quick results, yet perfect results too, so the bread will be crispy yet the insides melted and you’ll be able to get stuck in before you get overly hungry from waiting.

    LOGIK L02SMS17

    LOGIK L02SMS17

    Able to cook two portions, this Logik is great if you occasionally get that toastie craving but don’t need a big, overly-complicated and fancy appliance to get the job done.
    It is by far one of the cheapest on the market at under £10, yet the performance doesn’t match the price tag – we wouldn’t be surprised if you told us it was over double this cost. It does what it needs to, browning bread and melting the inside of the filling.
    The plates are non-stick so you aren’t going to be scraping bread off after every use, and it is lightweight and quite compact so can be stored away. Plus, the cord wrap ensures it is tidy and doesn’t make a mess when you pop it away.

    The consensus of ham toasties and melting cheese into toast is still a popular one and for that reason, these simple yet effective machines get our vote. Find one that suits your budget and has everything that you need- they come in different shapes and sizes.
