Always preheat the Sandwich Maker before using.
Select bread that will fit the Cooking Plates.
Use approximately 1/3 (85 ml) cup of filling for each sandwich.
Do not use processed cheese as it melts too quickly.
When using sweet filling a teaspoon of sugar on the buttered side of the bread will add flavor and make the outside of the sandwiches crispier.
Raisin bread or other sweet breads brown quickly so adjust cooking time accordingly.
