What A Time To Be Alive: The Grilled Cheese Toaster

November 15, 2017


This is the $25 Grilled Cheese Toaster from Nostalgia Electrics (previously: their bacon toaster and 3-in-1 breakfast station). You just insert buttered bread with cheese into the baskets, and a few minutes later, GRILLED CHEESE. It has a dial for adjusting your preferred amount of grilledness, and includes a removable tray at the bottom to catch the inevitable butter and melted cheese drippage. Me? I still make grilled cheese sandwiches the exact same way I did when I was a kid growing up in Alabama. "Which is?" Telling my mom that she makes the best ones.

Keep going for a couple more shots (including a completely unrealistic amount of mess in the drip tray) and a video.





Thanks to purplebat, who may not actually know if they're really purple due to poor eyesight. No word if you can echolocate colors.

    Or just use toaster bags

    Just turn a regular toaster on its side.

  • Or don't and just use a toaster vertically like this dumb ass thing does. With two pieces of bread a normal toaster will hold the bread even more snug than this one would. I don't understand a GC maker ever being vertical, but if it is... it's just a toaster.

    As shitty as this product seems to me, I still feel compelled to point out this thing has fryer basket-looking things with handles for getting the sandwich in/out, which is a massive betterment as compared with trying to jimmy the sandwich out of a regular toaster with a butter knife.

    You say "snug" but I'm pretty sure most toasters wouldn't handle the width of two slices of bread with cheese betwixt 'em, let alone the hassle/nightmare of trying to get them back out.
