Advantages: Quick and easy to use
Disadvantages: Get very, very hot so handle with care.
Have you ever fancied a toasted sandwich but couldn't be bothered to get the sandwich toaster out. Well I sometimes enjoy a toasted sandwich at lunchtime and have invested in some toastabags produced by JML, that is John Mills Limited. I bought a packet of 4 for £3.99 from Woolsworths before it closed down, but I have seen them advertised on the internet for less. They were apparently featured on a Dragon's Den programme.
The packet is white and yellow and is like a slimline wallet. Once opened the packet contains 4 light brown rectangular bags about 18cm by 16cm Each bag has an opening at the top measuring about 1cm by 21/2 cm so that you can easily remove the bag from the toaster, as of course it will be hot. They are so easy to use, you just make a sandwich as normal and then pop it in the toastabag and pop it in the toaster. In no time at all, you have a delicious toastie sandwich. Not only can these very useful bags be used to for sandwiches they can also, be used for pizza slices, fish fingers, bacon, burgers, chicken fillets but you do have to pop the toaster down a few times to make sure they are cooked thoroughly. As microwaves can make some foods soggy and ovens take too long by the time you have heated them up, they are ideal for a quick and easy snack. In fact, they can be used to heat food up like pasties, sauage rolls etc.
They can be used up to 100 times each and are dishwasher safe. I tend to wash mine with hot soapy water and then rinse very well. Inside the packet is also a recipe book which has recipes for Tuna Medley, Bacon Brunch, Pawn and Avocado and many more, although I must admit I haven't used any of them yet.
However, a word of warning they get very hot - so allow some time for the bag to cool before removing from the toaster. Never use liquids in them. Wash thorouhly after use. Designed to use in a variable width slot type toaster if used in an oridinary then use thin sliced bread and compress the sandwich after palcing it in the bag. They are quick and hassle free.

Summary: Ideal for a quick snack or a tasty toastie
