Sandwich Toaster Instructions

Updated February 21, 2017

The sandwich toaster, an appliance that browns and crisps the exterior of a prepared sandwich for a crunchy alternative to cold bread, warms the typical meat-and-cheese filled sandwich made in it, making it more flavourful than the same sandwich served cold. Sandwich toasters are operated like a waffle iron, no matter what brand you own.

Plug in the sandwich toaster to preheat it. Wait for the light on the front to go out, indicating that the plates inside are hot and ready to cook.

Prepare a sandwich. Spray the cooking plates of the sandwich toaster with oil or cooking spray.

Open the toaster and put your sandwich inside the square outline for it.

Close the toaster and cook the sandwich for four to six minutes or until the cheese melts and the exterior becomes toasty. The heating light cycles on and off during cooking; this is normal.

Open the toaster lid and remove the sandwich carefully with a silicone spatula after cooking. Avoid using metal spatulas, which can scratch the non-stick surface.
