Since many fast food chains like the golden arches one first introduced breakfast sandwiches, many people (like me) have fallen in love with these. If you are like me you probably thought I would love to be able to do these at home, but it sure looks like a lot of trouble. It was just a matter of time until someone developed something like this breakfast sandwich maker.
Well, Hamilton Beach has made this chore a lot easier. Not only is this the best selling sandwich maker on Amazon, it is the #8 best seller in all of their kitchen and dining section. So lets see why this is o popular. First let’s take a look at this short video showing what and how this sandwich maker works.
Since this has been shown on TV, it’s popularity has soared. Let me summarize what people like and don’t like about this little grill. It seems to work best with English muffins, although some other breads will work if they are too big or thick. Some complained that using bagels was not very successful. One reason was the hole in the middle of the bagel, also most were too big or thick.
Be sure and read the directions which says to used pre cooked meat. If you want to that yourself because you like bacon or sausage that’s fine. But to toast the bread and cook the egg properly, it can’t also cook uncooked meat. That’s common sense if you think about it. Be sure and preheat it and wait for the light showing it is ready to use.
Some says it takes a little learning curve. For example , some cheeses melt so much they almost liquefy. Also the recipe book that comes with the Hamilton Beach 25475 Breakfast Sandwich Maker. shows many different recipes other than the popular fast food versions. Overall it received a 4+ star rating with well over 400 customer ratings at the time I write this.
Here are some answers to some of the common questions. You don’t have to wash it each time between making two or more sandwiches. Just wipe it off with a clean sponge or wet rag. It is safe to use in a dorm and doesn’t put off too much smoke, but others might smell that aroma.
Different people liked their eggs cooked differently. So, obviously you will have to adjust the cooking time accordingly. Just use common sense and read the directions and you shou,ld be OK.
Customer loved the way it comes apart and the non stick finishes which make for easy clean up. Be sure and use those spay on non stick oil for easier clean up after each use. To summarize the many different reviews. People who followed the instructions and used the recommended ingredients had good experiences. Remember, it had an overall 4+ star rating and is the top selling sandwich maker, so most people like this. But it doesn’t work well as stated above when using uncooked meat or bread that is too thick.
The people that didn’t like it seemed to really not like it. But having a retail store (antiques) for many years, I found that people who are unhappy will tell more people than the people who are happy. Unfortunately, that seems to be human nature. Very few people went online and wrote good reviews. But one or two unhappy people will want to tell the world. Sorry, just my opinion. Thankfully many people leave positive reviews on Amazon and other sites about products.
Again, One person said it takes a little practice to get it all right. Some people like their bread toasted more than others. Same for eggs, some like them cooked soft, while others like them cooked more. But with a little patience, you should be able to find the ideal cooking time that will make yours just the way you like it.
