1. Features: Most important purchase criteria for a sandwich-toaster

1.1 Plates

Having a non-stick surface for the inner plates is always the best option. It is also considered an essential thing. Reason? It reduces the efforts of almost everything in cooking. You require less greasing, which is excellent if you are on a diet! Apart from that, you don't have to scrape the surfaces clean!

Apart from being non-stick, these plates are fixed and integrated into the body of the toaster. These are heating plates, and they heat-up to a very high temperature to give you the perfect grill.

Some toasters also have provisions that make these plates removable and interchangeable. You can use it either as a toaster or as a grill. This means that you won't be needing separate appliances for separate needs.

Pro Tip: Aluminium is the best material for heating plates as it has the highest thermal conductivity.

Our recommendation: You can prefer having removable plates if the replacements are readily available.

Our recommendation: You can prefer having removable plates if the replacements are readily available.

1.2 Efficiency

The design should be such that it will be able to toast the sandwiches perfectly regardless of the thickness of the slices or the stuffing. Some toasters can fit up to 4 bread slices and some can fit two. You have to choose between the two as per the needs of your appetite.

1.3 Heat Settings

Usually, all toasters have fixed heat settings and have two indicator lights to show when its heating or ready to use. There are a few toasters where you can cook sandwiches at different heat settings, but that isn't a standard integration.

Our recommendation: If you don't have any special cooking needs, then a toaster with fixed heat settings would be a great fit!

Our recommendation: If you don't have any special cooking needs, then a toaster with fixed heat settings would be a great fit!

1.4 Design

There are two fundamental design differences that you should know about. One is a panini press, and the other is a sandwich maker.

Panini Press: Before you tie their knot, the ancient Indian scholar 'Panini' had nothing to do with panini press sandwiches! A panini press was an invention of the 1920s. Primarily a panini press is designed like a grill that has heating plates without any partitions in between. This means that you can bake any bread in this one along with the average square bread slice.

Sandwich Maker: The standard design that has triangular partitions in the heating plates are the sandwich makers. These are used in everyday home cooking and is considered an excellent fit for quick toasted sandwiches!

Our recommendation: Decide on the design that grills for your needs!

2. Use Cases: The best sandwich-toaster for you

2.1 Which sandwich toaster is best for moderate/home cooking?

When you are cooking for a Sunday brunch with your family and a few close friends, a healthy sandwich maker is an ideal choice for you. However, if you want to surprise everyone with some out of the box sandwiches like ham or salmon or tuna, you should take the Panini press.

2.2 Which sandwich toaster is best for restaurant cooking?

Restaurants have different cooking needs than usual Sunday parties. They need to churn out a significant quantity of food and in the inherently low time. If you want to buy a toaster for your restaurant, you need something big that can grill a foot-long bread loaf. A standard sandwich maker or a usual panini press isn't going to serve your needs. You should think on a grander scale!
