Essential information, new sandwich toaster for the use of [Aug. 14th, 2007|11:07 pm]
Listen in, listen Ian!

Pleasingly, the labels for the red and green LEDs are reversed. I like "Button".

The bit of the manual that tells you how to use it is headed "HOW TO MAKE SANDWICHES". Excellent.

There are also HINTS FOR BEST RESULT, including:

  • For soft or liquid sandwich fillings use medium sliced bread, white or brown. If small amounts of filling use toasting bread.

  • For added flavour use bacon dripping, brush dripping on outside of bread

  • Suggested garnishes for sandwiches, lettuce, parsley, mint, cress, stuffedolive halves, onion, tomato etc.

  • A teaspoon of sugar sprinkled on the outside makes toasted sandwiches crisper (especially with fruit fillings).

This reminds me of a classic French war comedy where an officer is given a bomb in order to go and destroy a strategic bridge. The instructions are simple: "put the red wire onto the red button, and the blue wire on the blue button". Throughout the film he is seen walking through various landscapes, and repeating to himself: "the red wire onto the red button, and the blue wire on the blue button" again and again lest he forgets.

At the end, he reaches the bridge, opens up the briefcase and finds a red wire, a blue wire, a green button and a white button.

Watch out for tomatoes (eg in a cheese and tomato toastie).

They warm up disproportionately to the chesse and bread for some reason so you end up scalding you mouth.

You have been warned!

Brilliant, dude.

Particularly love the 'dripping' tip.

I'm off to dig out my 10yo Breville.
