I got sick of toasting my bread on a frying pan because it takes too much of my time, so I bought this cute sandwich compact. I just use it to toast my bread and it serves my purpose very well. The only thing I am not so satisfied is that the instruction that came with the product is not clear. The instruction says that 'when the ready light is on, place your bread on it' and the machine has a red and green light. I don't know which one is the ready light. Also, every time I plug the machine in, there is this very unpleasant smell like plastic burning. It is pretty scary. Other than that, I'm quite satisfied with the product.
