This piece of equpitment might be very basic but is very effective. I remember the days when i used to have to put two slices of bread in a toaster wait on it whilst cutting slices of cheese then eventually placing the cheese so it covers all of the bread then either sticking it in the microwave or putting it under the grill and getting the timing right so the cheese is melted but not burnt. It was a right pain just to get a good toastie. Then i discovered the HINARI LIFESTLE toastie machine, it was given to me from my grandmother as a present one christmas, and when i first saw it i though..."what a bloody pointless thing to give me when i have perfectly good taoster that does the same thing at home". Oh how wrong i was. I had for a few weeks before actually using it then i decided one day to give it a try, and i was pleasantly suprised, it was a lot easier than using a toaster and a grill.
First you plug in the toastie machine in a socket and a red light should go on, you then have to wait a minute until it turns green and that means you can put the untoasted toastie in! whilst waiting get two slices of bread and butter one side one each slice. then turn one slice of bread butter side down and place your toppings on it. Say your just having a cheese toastie than place a good amount of cheese on the slice bread, buy now the light on the toastie machine should have turned green, now put the slice of bread with the cheese on it so the butter side is facing down, then place the othe slice of bread on top with the butter side facing up. After that you then close the toastie machine so it presses down on the sandwich making sure that none of your filling falls out, it then shouldnt take long for the sandwich to turn into a toastie....a lot quicker than a grill anyway. The light will eventually turn off and that means it should be ready, all you have to do is open the machine up lift the top and you should see that the toastie is still in one but has two triangular shapes where the machine has been pressed down. Take the toastie out(be carefull it might be a bit hot!) place it on a plate and then cut through where the two triangles meet so you will have two triangular slices. You should now have a lovely cheese(or whatever filling you put in) toastie and all you do now is sit back and enjoy!
After my first experiance of using this machine i have never used a toaster since, and i have my grandmother to thank! as it is one of the most usefull present i have ever had. A quick and easy way to enjoy a delicious snack.
Sorrrrrrrrrrrrrrry for ruining your run of 'very helpful' ratings, but I really don't like the layout of this review. The big block paragraphs aren't very appealing. I also think a bit more info would be good. Good review generally though, just a little ropey here and there. Scarlett x
