Whether you prefer cheese and ham, a little bit of onion, tomatoes, or even beans in your toastie, cleaning your toastie machine correctly can be the bugbear following a tasty afternoon snack.
While slips, trips and falls in kitchens are quite commonplace, by cleaning your toastie machine safely and correctly, you can minimise other kitchen accidents including electrical injuries and burns.
Cleaning your toastie machine
One of the most important things to note when cleaning your toastie machine, is that you should never fully immerse your appliance in water.
Many toastie machines have removable plates. If this is the case, before cleaning your toastie machine, you should unplug your appliance and wait for it to cool. Remove the plates and wash them thoroughly in warm, soapy water.
If you are cleaning a machine that does not have removable plates, the process can be a little more difficult.
Again, wait for your toastie machine to fully cool, use a damp, soapy kitchen sponge and work in circular movements on the plates of the machine. Use a spatula to loosen any stubborn bits of food.
Buttering both sides of your bread before cooking toasties creates a non-stick effect when toasting. This should help you remove your snack from the machine with minimal sticking, making the cleaning process much easier.
