JML Toasta Bags
Advantages: easy to use, great price, lovely sandwiches
Disadvantages: none for me
Our grill 'died' last year and I we do miss our cheese on toast, especially at this time of year. True, we do have at least one sandwich maker, but not easily accessible to the size of our pan cupboard In addition, for some reason they always seem to need a good wipe clean every time they are used even though they are always cleaned before stored away.
Anyway, a couple of weeks ago I remembered that I had bought some of these JML Toasta Bags in the summer sale at Poundstretcher which only cost me £1.99 for two instead of the RRP of £3.99. The packaging is pretty similar to the one in the Dooyoo picture but the actual bags are black in colour, so it could be that JML were selling off old stock?
They are a good size for eg Warburton's (family size) bread and are constructed from a wipe-clean, non-stick quite substantial black material. Each one has a handy handle which means you can easily lift the hot cooked sandwich out of the toaster without burning your fingers.
Each bag is said to be re-usable for up to a hundred times but, to date, I've used each one only a about ten times so cannot guarantee this.
So far I have made cheese, cheese and onion, cheese and ham and cheese and pickle toasted sandwiches and have found them to be really tasty. I am hoping to come up with some more adventurous fillings though and hope they will come in useful when making the most out our turkey leftovers!
They make good toasted sandwiches but they aren't the same as those you would expect to come out of a sandwich maker for the following reasons =
- they are not as crisp on the outside
- the fillings are not as melted/ cooked as much
- the edges are not sealed
however, I love using these because -
- I do not have to faff about with cleaning the sandwich-maker before I start
- I do not have to cut off the edges of the bread nor butter outside before making sure the slices are the right size
- I do not have to clean the sandwich-maker after use.
I am not as lazy as you might be thinking - just busy - so if I can save time and effort on making snacks I will do so I can make more time to cook properly in the evening.
There is nothing easier than using these JML toasta bags - all you need is a toaster with standard slots and a few spare minutes. There is no need to worry about cleaning them either as you can run them under a hot tap - yay!
5 stars from me for the design, ease of use and good price :)
Summary: another great idea from JML
