I'm very pleased indeed with this sandwich toaster from Breville. The machine is well built in chrome and black (plastic/metal) and gets to temperature quickly (a green light on the top of the device turns OFF). The sandwich toaster comfortably fits four rounds of bread - even if you're using a taller kind such as a slices taken from fresh split tin, or a Warburtons sliced loaf - so is plenty big enough to feed an average-sized family. There is no temperature control dial, but this seems to regulate itself fairly well, so that sandwiches crisp up nicely on the outside but don't burn before fillings have had a chance to warm.
The metal plates are - unusually - flat, so you don't get a liney, griddle-style effect on your cooked food, but they're also very effectively non-stick. The latter point means that there's no need to use butter or spread on the outside of your bread.
After use, the sandwich toaster cools quite slowly, so you do have to wait a while before you can put this away. For cleaning purposes this is good - but could be better. The non-stick plates wipe clean very easily but as this is intended for sandwich toasting rather than use as a multi-pupose grill there's no drainage channel. Combine this with a raised lip (about 0.5cm) that goes all the way round the bottom heating plate and it's not quite as easy to get crumbs out as it could be. I end up flicking crumbs out of the corner with a pastry brush.
The lid to this sandwich toaster is quite tall when raised - and in my kitchen (which has top cupboards all the way round above the worktop areas) there isn't quite room to open the lid to the point where it stays open on its own as the handle hits the cupboard above.
