This report shows you five established, reliable toasted sandwich makers, performing as owners expect. Our unbiased recommendations are based on combined owner rating scores, which we also share with you.

The Best Toasted Sandwich Makers 2019

How does it work?

We begin by building a list of toasted sandwich makers with more than 50 ratings at Amazon UK, Argos and John Lewis. This jumps straight to the established products, and the rating scores reveal how they've actually performed, according to numerous owners.

We then remove the toasted sandwich makers with less than 4 stars. We now have a list of the higher rated models, with a credible amount of opinion.

We use the same criteria for all our consumer reports: each product must have over 50 reviews and more than 4 stars. After sorting the list by ratings, we compile this Top 5.

Our Notes on this Market

This is an easy market for the consumer to navigate. It is reasonably sized, and it is easy to tell products apart from each other: both visually and how they are named.

We first calculated the ratings for sandwich makers in 2016, and Breville scored the best then; taking the first and second positions in our top 5.

As usual, Amazon stocked the most machines, with Tesco and Argos selling around 20 models each. John Lewis had 10 on sale.

While it is not a particularly innovative market, we do see improvements in heating controls and new non-stick materials.

We only calculated the ratings of sandwich presses, toastie makers and toasted sandwich machines. There are now many dedicated variants of this type of machine, panini machines for example. We have a separate report for the best ones.
