Sandwich making is easy when you follow couple of very basic tips – here are mine, using the Tefal Ultaracompact SM1552
Making sandwiches has never been easier these days, thanks to the variety of kitchen appliances that make our day a little bit easier. Couple of weeks ago I bought my first ever sandwich maker – Tefal Ultaracompact SM1552. Actually I wasn’t really into sandwich makers but I found that one on a very good price and decided to give it a try. The result was that I made pretty good homemade sandwiches/toasts in no time. So here are couple of quick tips and advice I would give to beginner sandwich makers (home chefs):
- Buy a quality brand sandwich makers, don’t compromise just for saving couple of bucks – I would strongly advise you to invest in quality brand like Tefal, Philips or Moulinex, it’s really not worth saving some cash in case you plan to use the sandwich maker on daily basis.
- Read the manual – usually operating with sandwich makers is pretty easy and some of them don’t even have any buttons or switches, just plug it in and it is ready for use. Anyways, I would advise you to read the instructions/user manual first.
- I wait for the sandwich maker to warm up a bit before putting the toast in it – I don’t know why, I just believe it conserves the substances between the two bread slices better and sandwiches taste a bit better.
- Clean your sandwich maker well after each use – if you leave any dirty spots and areas that might ruin your next portion, no matter how well it was prepared. So just make sure to clean the sandwich maker well after you use it.
Well, these were my quick “in the kitchen” tips for making better sandwiches at home. With the Tefal Ultaracompact SM1552 I learned how to make good cheese toast real quick. One thing that worries me is that making delicious sandwiches is so easy now that I may gain some extra weight in no time… hopefully I don’t.
