I have a kind of grid thing for barbecues which might work. If it makes a good toastie I will buy one of the proper ones although I think they are for aga's only and round not rectangular.

The new Brevilles are a bit easier to clean than the old ones. The plates are removable so you can get them into the sink and scrub them.

we use the aga rack on our rayburn they seem to turn our right.

but when the rayburn is out we use a sandwich press they also toast wraps etc so are less limiting than the old sandwich toasters.

Hugely technical idea here but believe it or not, a frying pan works just as well...

Many suggestions. Question is, do you need the edges sealed to get that burnt/caramelised/crusty/bcb effect, or not? If so, only a dedicated sandwich toaster will do the job. If not, you're away with any of the others.

If you butter the outside of the bread, you get lovely burnt crisp bits.

Totally agree about the nightmare cleaning - can I suggest a pie maker instead? Same idea, with 4 deep indentations for the best savoury or sweet pies ever - we recently made 150 for a function, as I have one and my sister has two!
They are a wipe over clean, and you don't get all that cheese squidge going on
They vary in quality and some STICK!!!!
Here's the one I have

The pies look really professional - they make excellent pies, great for leftover pie fillings - in fact you can even use pizza dough so in a way its a bit like a sandwhich machine - calzone style!!

I do toasted sandwiches straight on the hotplate too.

One thing I can't do though is cheese on toast or anything with a toasted top.

No worries Nick - If I was on commission I would be a millionaire by now, but they are THE gismo to have in the kitchen - saves money and makes expensive foodstuffs go further - my sister costed out the meat pies we made and they came out at around 60 cents per pie - that was with roll out pastry as well - that;s under 50 p per pie!!!!!

Course not, he values his life.

I probably shouldn't have tried straight off making egg toasties on the rayburn. We will be getting some gadget.
