    I bought my parents a Kenwood SM606 as a replacement for their old sandwich toaster (you know, the kind everyone bought in the 70's and 80's) when it died on them after many years of service. The problem with the old one was that, whilst the sandwiches it made were really tasty, its shape meant it could only take ordinary sliced bread and it wasn't the easiest kitchen contraption to clean. The SM606 does equally good toasties but tops the old one by being able to make paninis, Italian sandwiches and loads of other bread-related sweet and savoury snacks - in fact almost any type of bread can be used, including baguettes, ciabatta and focaccia.

    It isn't the most elaborate or complicated thing to use, you simply switch it on, wait for it to heat up and then pop in your chosen snack. It heats up fairly rapidly and grills sandwiches in five minutes or so, with the end result always tasting good. The grilling plates are shaped very similarly to those on a certain Lean Mean Grilling Machine (you know, the kind everyone bought in the 90's) so that excess butter is allowed to run out leaving the sandwiches crisper; a lip around the lower plate edge ensures that any excess doesn't spill out over the worktop. The shape of the plates also makes cleaning much easier - just wipe over them with a damp cloth after use.

    The SM606 is a pretty big and heavy item but it does feel sturdy and it can always be stored upright if room is at a premium, although keeping it secreted away does seem a bit of a waste given its really classy chrome finish. This finish also makes cleaning the exterior much less of a chore, again you just wipe over it with a damp cloth.

    Well may be not the last word, but it's difficult to see what more you might need from a sandwich toaster.

    I used to have one of those Breville toasters, designed for bread half the size of the current standard loaf slice, which either sealed the toastie round the edges or squeezed all the stuffing out. Didn't use it very much because it was to messy an difficult to clean.

    This Kenwood one is so straight forward and easy to clean we are now regular toastiers.

    I have not tried grilling anything on it or perhaps not tested it to it's fullest range of capabilities, but i only want it for a toasted sandwich so for that it's great.

    I bought this for my parents for Christmas. Their only criteria was that it must be easy to clean cheese off... I read lots of reviews before deciding to go with this one rather than a traditional Breville. They love this sandwich maker and now use it every day, it ticks all the boxes, is easy to clean, to store and very easy to use. My dad now insists on everything going in the Panini press (including the turkey and stuffing leftovers! - very very good product.

    Posh sandwiches! I've used all sorts of bread -From very thick Ciabatta to very thin pitta -all fantastic. Takes very little time to heat up. A few minutes to cook. If you mke a mess with the cheese DON'T WORRY!! as soon as it cools it just easily wipes off! Unfortunately the plug doesn't stow away easily BUT the sandwiches ARE great!

    Based on reviews and other user experiences with Toasters, I decided on this one as the deciding factor was the non-stick appeal, which seems to be a problem with other machines, cleaning wise.

    My first impression was of a rather large and sleek machine with a nice shiny chrome upper half and a pretty large cooking surface. I'd imagine you could make four Sandwiches in one go but most certainly, two large ones.

    Having set it up in it's allotted space, I made a Brown bread sandwich of Cheddar cheese and Ham. I then grabbed the instruction booklet to see what I should be doing and here comes the first surprise. The machine has seven settings but the Booklet has absolutely no guide lines as to what power these settings represent - although helpfully explaining you can also use it as a toaster - big deal.

    After putting the setting on max, I put the Sandwich on when the Green light glowed to indicate ready and waited nearly six minutes before lifting said plate which showed a more than ready "Toastie" with some leaked Cheddar onto the hot plate. It was obviously over done but was still delicious although much crispier than desired. I've made a few more since then and am getting better at it but it's quite obvious that Kenwood can't issue guidelines as each individual has to decide what way they like the finished product.

    Now to cleaning: It passes all tests, with a damp sponge removing any burnt bits and no sticking pieces. Another plus point is that you don't butter the bread and put it butter side down on the plate which seems to be a common factor with other Sandwich makers.

    I rate it very highly, but be warned, it does take up aa bit of space.

    This sandwich maker seems robustly made and is finished attractively in chrome. It is quite large but then this is because there is plenty of room on the hotplates for large pieces of bread.

    I used to have a sandwich maker of the variety that would attempt to cut the sandwiches into two triangles and seal each one. In reality I tended to find that the sandwich would end up glued to the hotplates, the filling would ooze out and leak into the innards of the machine, and the sandwiches were not cut in two either! This machine merely toasts but this approach works well. The plates are easy to clean and there are no problems with sandwiches glued to them. Also when the fillings leak out they just end up on the hotplate where they can easily be removed.

    I have only made standard sandwiches out of home made bread so far. I let the machine warm up until the "Ready" light comes on. About 4 minutes on heat setting No.5 seems to hit the mark nicely.

    I only have a few slight reservations about the machine :

    - although it does seem robust the bolts that attach the top hotplate to the handle look pretty small and I'm not convinced that they would stand up to daily use year in and year out,

    - when you press down on the handle to press the hotplates together the whole machine tips forward quite easily which could be dangerous,

    - the external surfaces of the machine become very hot during use. In a world of "Cool Wall" toasters I'm a little surprised that the same approach hasn't been used in designing this machine.

    But overall I am pretty pleased with the Kenwood.
