Breville VST025 Sandwich Press : So easy to wipe clean

The second one of these i have bought. Not because of any issue with the first but because it was so good that a family member wanted one for themselves, so this is a gift. I don’t really think anything i can say can really make the quality of this product clearer than that. It’s pretty easy to use, just plug it in. There are no temperature settings (or even a power switch) unfortunately, but that does mean it’s extremely quick and simple. The plates are big enough to accommodate two rounds of bread placed side-by-side (i. Two sandwiches at once) or to accommodate larger bread products such as rolls, ciabattas, and paninis. Equally the hinge mechanism means the plates can fit these taller products- the top plate is hinged on top of the arms so will stay flat meaning your toasted product gets an even heating without being squashed. It’s fairly easy to clean too, most things will just wipe off of the plates using a cloth/paper towel and some dish soap or food-safe disinfectant.

Had this a couple of weeks now bought for my daughter but tried it myself and it’s got to be the best sandwich toaster ever it toasts evenly the toast is soft no hard teeth breaking edges on the toast well cooked contents of toastie. Can fit two slices of a standard loaf side by side easily thus making two toasties of evenly toasted bread the lid folds down on top nicely no need to apply pressure to it if you do it tips over. I’ve cooked bacon on it and will try other foods as well over the lifetime of this product it’s perfect. It wipes clean so easily it’s the best no stick cookware i’ve used. Use a damp cloth to wipe clean whilst still warm it’s so easy. I’ll never buy any other toaster again my old one is sitting redundant on the cupboard now with its stick to non stick surface and compressed teeth breaking edges which i always thought was a fairly good machine till i tried this one. I know this was doubly expensive because i bought for my daughter and kept it so had to buy another for her but well worth the money i’ve never had such wonderful toasted sandwiches it’s every morning now i absolutely love it and recommend it to anyone thinking of buying if your not sure buy and try amazon are excellent at accepting returns if your not happy but i think you will be struggling to be unhappy with this product i’d give six stars if possible. It also stands up at an angle but a bit precarious easy to knock over so stand it somewhere you won’t keep knocking it.

I love this sandwich toaster so much, a bonus of having a day off work is that i can have a cheese toastie for lunch. Contrary to another review, it does stand vertically and i have it on a shelf in the kitchen ready to go at any time. It has never seen the inside of a cupboard unlike its ancestors. The smooth wipe clean plates and floating top mean any size bread can be used. I have also heated cheese and onion pasties in there. I gotta go, it’s in action as we speak and the smell is telling me my toastie is ready. Don’t forget to unplug it when you’re done.

I totally agree with the many positive comments, this is a true winner. Construction quality is top rate, sturdy and built to last. It is simple and easy to use, with a pivoted top lid that adjusts to what is placed upon the bottom plate so giving an even distribution of toasting. What is inside is well cooked and in balance to the toasting of the outer. It is fantastically easy to keep clean, any melted cheese, just brushes off the surfaces. For the price it is really great value. The instruction booklet is clear and easy to follow with a selection of cooking suggestions in detail.

I want to add my support to all the glowing endorsements of this product. I don’t often leave reviews but in this case i felt compelled to. It is, hands down, the best product of its kind i have ever purchased. Being used to the traditional sandwich toasters which seal the bread, i was a little sceptical about buying one which didn’t have this facility. As it transpires, i much prefer this kind of flat press, mainly due to the fact that it is so much more versatile in terms of what it can toast. It is also an absolute breeze to clean when compared to my previous sandwich maker which had so many crevices in the plates which food clung to, making cleaning it a real chore. In contrast these flat non-stick plates take seconds to thoroughly wash and dry. Furthermore, despite being a pretty compact device, the surface area of the hot plates is ample for virtually any size of bread that i have used, from conventional sliced pans to batch loaves and panini’s. In addition, its lightweight, really easy to use and heats up rapidly. Most important of all, it makes fabulous toasties.

Would recommend to anyone looking for a decent quality sandwich press. Have used continuously since arrival and am so happy with this product. Good design, has a safety lock on the right side to ensure that you it won’t open when taking in and out of cupboard – there is a little bit of metal in the lock so do not use when still hot. The metal part all around does heat up quite quietly but the black handle is well insulated for use. Have used a multitude or breads, wraps etc and all cook perfectly within a fast time frame. Have not had to butter the outside of any of the sandwiches. Heats up in couple of mins and depending on how well done you want your toastie, it takes 4/5 mins to be ready. Even with overflowing cheese there has not been any issue with the leaking on the edges. When closing top on sandwich you do need to press down some what, but do it gently and slowly, otherwise it can tip forward.

I’ve had this sandwich press for a while now and can say i’m pleased with its performance. I used to have a ‘cutter in halfer’ but found the filling often oozed out the side while the pressure was applied to cut it in half. This sandwich press has flat plates with a good non stick coating. They are not detachable, but all i do is wipe them around with a paper towel when my toastie is done and that is it. Cheese melts pretty quick and by applying the pressure you want you don’t get loads of it leaking out. The paperwork says you don’t need to butter the outside of the bread, but personally i like to put a sprinkle of olive oil on the outside slice to make a bit of ‘crustiness’ on the outside before biting into that ‘gooey’ interior. Anyway so far so good, hopefully the elements will last for a decent amount of time.

This is a brilliant sandwich machine. We have had several of these and this beats the lot of them. One of the things we used to complain about as a family was that the ridged ones were so difficult to clean. That is one of the bonuses of this machine, because the plates are smooth, it is so easy to wipe clean and actually it doesn’t leave the same messy anyway, so there is another plus. We also love it because it flattens your bread and you can use different types of bread and can place easily two full sized sandwiches by each other. It doesn’t take long to warm up and cooks very quickly too which is great when you have a hungry family. I can’t speak more highly of this toasted sandwich machine.
