A sandwich toaster is a kitchen appliance designed to quickly toast your sandwich on both sides without using the traditional butter and skillet method to toast a sandwich. The machine's non-stick coating guarantees that the sandwich won't stick to the cooking surface even without the use of cooking spray, butter or margarine. As with any other cooking appliance, you must clean the sandwich maker after each use.

    Dip the cloth in the soapy water, squeeze out and wipe down the grill plates of the sandwich toaster. Repeat until you have removed all sandwich residue.

Tips and warnings

  • Never use abrasive cleaners or rough scrubbing pads on the grill plates, as this breaks off the non-stick coating.
