Cuisinart sandwich maker

Premium kitchen appliance manufacturer Cuisinart has launched a super-sized sandwich maker, designed for deep-filled sandwiches.

The £49 stainless-steel Cuisinart GRSM1U Overstuffed sandwich maker boasts extra-large plates and pockets which, Cuisinart says, will toast a deep-filled sandwich in minutes.

The new sandwich maker is designed to take all types of bread, including focaccia and ciabatta. Cuisinart says pastry can also be used in the machine, to create desserts such as apple and blackberry turnovers. 

The sandwich maker features a variable temperature control and dishwasher-safe removable non-stick plates, as well as recipe book. 

Which? kitchen appliances expert Lisa Galliers said: 'It looks just like a sandwich maker but is combined with the features of a panini press to give you a modern twist on a classic kitchen appliance. Removable plates are more common on health grills, but should make cleaning easier.'

The Cuisinart Overstuffed sandwich maker is available now from Lakeland and John Lewis.
