Using Your Sandwich Toaster
Always lightly spray the plates with olive oil (or similar) prior to use.
After finishing cooking turn off toaster, place a couple of sheet of kitchen roll on the plates and close. This will make cleaning easier as any juices/fat will be absorbed.
Never use metal utensils or abrasive cleaners they will scratch the plates, cause food to stick and make cleaning harder.
For office harmony try to use the sandwich toaster out of the most popular lunch hours, or get colleagues on board and take turns!
When using spicy marinades cook the meat first then toss through the marinade. Marinades on the hot surface tend to evaporate into the air and can be disruptive in an office environment.
Dry spice rubs on meat can give a real flavour kick, if you can prepare first thing in the morning and leave till lunch the flavour will penetrate the meat for a better flavour. The same applies for a marinade.
You can save time by buying pre marinaded meat but save money by marinading yourself (take your choice).
Anything you can prepare yourself will keep costs down i.e. grating/slicing your own cheese is cheaper than buying pre packaged.
Spice grinders don’t take up much room and add lots of flavour, keep your favourite to hand.
