Excellent

Very easy to clean, quick consistant results

none

I've had my Breville TR40 for about a month now and I wish I'd bought it sooner! My old sandwich maker had finally bitten the dust after it lost it's non stick plating, probably due to my having to scrape the contents out on nearly every occasion-not so with the Breville TR40. This cafe style...

“Makes great Tuna Melts!”

Quick, easy to clean, great sandwiches.

I received one of these last Christmas and when I received it, I thought it was one of the best presents that I'd received. It was purchased from amazon for about £40. I think it's now about £30. INTRO :- The Breville TR40 is a pannini press, NOT a sandwich maker. My point in saying this is to...

“No mess toasties.”

published 05/02/2005

Easy to use.

Outside gets a bit warm

Perfect toasted sandwiches in minutes. Most people who have experienced the older style of toasty maker will probably agree that they were messy to use and a nightmare to clean. You had to butter the outside of both slices of bread and by the time you got the bread squeezed into the funny shaped...

The slight lip around the base plate

I bought this great little sandwich maker just before Christmas from Amazon (and it arrived well before the estimated date) and I have used it for lunches every weekend since. The plates have space for a couple of long ciabatta rolls or panini placed side-by-side. If cooking only one, it's best...

Can be aquward to clean

I got a Breville toasty maker for Christmas. (With a hidden agenda from the giver of the gift). I was not sure about whether I would use as it's very easy to get theses kitchen appliances and then find out that you do not use them. I also had thoughts about them being to big before hand. On the...

The outside does get hot

After having a traditional sandwich toaster for a long time but hated cleaning it, I decided to go for the Breville TR40 panini maker. I am so glad it did. It makes fantastic toasted sandwiches, paninis and I also use it to cook fried onions, burgers and meat in general, it is really versatile...
