Charles V. Champion Sr. invented the sandwich maker in the 1920s. He called his invention the Toastwich. It was the first appliance invented that toasted a sandwich and warmed the ingredients at the same time. However, the sandwich maker did not become a popular home appliance until the 1980s when informercials demonstrated a variety of recipes cooked in sandwich makers.
