Electric appliance, toasted sandwich maker, or 'jaffle' or 'toastie' maker. Chrome outer, black plastic handle with metal latch and black plastic feet. Hinges on back allows it to open out flat for sandwich construction or heating other snacks. Inside are Teflon coated non-stick cooking plates for two toasted sandwiches, with a diagonal ridge to cut each sandwich in half and a scalloped pattern on each half. Electrical cord and control box with red light attached to underside.
To use the appliance, turn it on and allow hot plates to heat up. The red light should turn off when the hot plates are sufficiently heated. Butter one side of a piece of bread and place it buttered side down onto the cooking plate. Place filling on bread and second piece of bread on top with buttered side up. Press sandwich maker closed and lock closed with latch on handle. The bread is sealed around the outside and cut in half diagonally along the centre. The sandwich will cook in about two minutes. This seals the filling inside making it easier to eat, but very hot. Two toasted sandwiches can be made at the same time.
