Guide Review - Sandwich Maker

The sandwich maker is a very versatile kitchen gadget with many uses other than just grilled cheese sandwiches. You can cook pancakes, omelets, pastries and more. The maker quickly heats up and cooks most meals in about 3 minutes. This is perfect for quick snacks for the kids.

There are four cooking wells, so you get 4 sealed sandwiches. At times, the filling can spill out, and you have to be careful to place the bread properly so the sandwiches seal well.

Cleanup is very easy. Do not immerse the sandwich maker in water; just wipe out the cooking wells with a damp cloth. A toothpick is helpful in removing any food particles around the hinged lid area.
