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.
