Disadvantages: does not fit all toasters
My Nan was clearing out her kitchen cupboards the other day of all of her old belongings that she no longer uses, she had emptied all of the contents into a box and said that I could help myself to any of the items in the box as they were going to the dump.
I rifled through the box and came across some Toastabags, the box that they were in stated that were the original Toastabags, although they were strangely something that I had never come across before.
What is a Toastabag I hear your cry, well it is a black looking bag that is slightly bigger than a slice of bread and it has a small hole in the top in the middle of the bag so that it can be removed from the toaster with ease.
You make a sandwich such as cheese and ham for example and if you would prefer to have the sandwich hot and toasted you place it into the Toastabag and pop the bag into your toaster and in around three minutes you will have a hot toasted cheese and ham sandwich with hot melted cheese too.
The bag makes sure that your toaster stays clean, I was a little sceptical as I thought that the filling would just run out of the sandwich to the bottom of the bag but it doesn't as the toaster holds the sandwich perfectly. Not only can you use it for sandwiches with fillings of your choice you can also heat up pastries and slices of pizza too.
The Toastabag can be reused up to 300 times each and what's even better is that there are two in a pack, so that is around 600 uses which is a lot of toasted food. It is a quick and easy way of reheating you food without the stress of having to clean your oven or sandwich toaster. The bag can either be washed in the sink with hot soapy water or placed into the dishwasher for an easy clean.
Not only is the Toastabag easy to use it is also a healthier option as no additional fats are required to heat the food. It is easy to remove the sandwich out of the bag as it also has a non stick coating.
I have been using the bags now for a few months and it still looks as good as new. When you take the bag out of the toaster be careful as they can be really hot and burn your fingers, make sure that you use the hole provided to help remove the bag from the toaster.
The only downfall is I cannot use this at home for toasting sandwiches as the toaster is too small as I cannot adjust the width, so I have to use thin bread or flatten the sandwich before toasting to make it fit, which ruins your lunch. But the toaster at work we have this facility so it is great to use, especially as you can make the sandwich at home and take it to work at put in your toasterbag for a nice hot lunch.
Overall this is a great buy if you have a toaster that can fit a sandwich in and I have seen this brand available online for under £5.00, so for £2.50 a bag and with a cost of £0.0083 a use.
Summary: a nice hot lunch
