Sunbeam Compact Cafe Sandwich Press is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic A really fantastic sandwich press. I absolutely love it. Sandwiches come out better than some cafe's. One of the best appliances I own. I only bought the 2 x slice one because there is only two of us now, kids flown the nest., but it takes a large piece of bread easily. I would recommend this sandwich press to anyone wanting a 'cafe' style toasted sandich without hesitation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from major design fault We recently bought this little press as it looked lovely, we like Sunbeam and we are just two people, so it seemed perfect. However, upon our first use - to make simple grilled cheese, we noticed that when you go to pull the top down to toast the sandwich, the unit falls over. In other words, it does not hold it's position on the. counter when you want to hold the lid down for a good press. The press literally falls towards you as you hold the lid down. Not sure how this made it past quality control? We are returning ours this week.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sunbeam snack maker Well rating this was a hard one as I managed to swap the one I bought for the older version . Buyers beware - the new one can not be stored vertically !! ( not sure what stupid changes they have made to this and one other model cafe sandwich press - but they no longer stand upright . ? The box shows the old model and the instruction manual still Claims they can be stored vertically . Do not be fooled !!! I have tried to contact sunbeam nz about this several times ( email / phone ) but have had no joy . I am so far happy with the older version although the plastic bit over the light indicated fell off the second time I used it . Hope that isn’t indicative of its general durability ! The store was mostly helpful

Questions & Answers

Is the grill surface flat or ribbed?

Asked by: EmWesty
Hi there. Thanks for your question. The Sandwich press has flat cooking plates. This allows for toasting on both sides for even browning and faster cooking.
