Toastabags: make a near-perfect grilled cheese sandwich

“trying to reduce butter in your diet”

no idea how it got there. i don’t even like butter.


We are talking about grilled cheese sandwiches, right?


“sans butter”

Well, there’s your problem.



Because buttering a slice of bread on one side, slapping it in a pan on medium heat for 30 seconds, sandwiching cheese and other fixing betweeen it and another buttered slice of bread, and flipping the whole thing over to grill the other side for another 30 seconds is just too damn hard.


you do it with cheese and bread. there’s no butter in a toaster, unless you’re into buying a toaster every couple of months.

grrr… huff…

Does it strike anyone else as strange - given BB’s predilection toward DIY and Maker culture - that so many of the ads we get are for the kind of absurd “convenience” devices and luxury appliance crapola that you’d expect out of a SkyMall catalog?


They know what side of their toast is buttered.


It couldn’t possibly have anything to do with sponsorship. Every last one of them has a kitchen the size of the Taj Mahal.

Also, try frying both sides open-face in a covered pan. The cheese melts faster.

no butter? no point.
i don’t pan fry… but i do use my toaster oven.
i’ve never understood the need for a toaster when a toaster oven does the same thing and more.

2 reasons toasters are required:

  1. pop tarts
  2. easy and dramatic suicide

PS: I don’t want woven fiberglass near my food.


couldn’t disagree more… heated pop tarts are gross

…Don’t tell me you eat those delicious abominations cold.

Fitting. For we can be reasonably certain that, like the Taj Mahal, these kitchens too are naught but stony tombs.


Kill the Heat-Tart Infidel! Throw him in the bath with his own acursed toaster!


Especially considering the actual Cool Tools book features some really… cool… tools.

For those who want to give Kevin money (which you probably should, since the book is awesome):

For those who want to look at cool tools but don’t have money/are tightareses:

It’s pretty much the ONLY thing I use the toaster for. You guys have amazing heat tarts that my slightly-less diabetic country can only dream of (or pay twice the price to get the fabled treats of your land). They sell only two flavours domestically and they only just brought those back this year :cry:

In all seriousness, they’re “good” (for certain values of good) both cold and hot.

But screw toasters - I’m a toaster oven kinda guy.


well ya but jeeesm, a lot of us work for a living, if the the cafe is three blocks away that trip can pretty much kill the 1/2 hour we get. I got no problem with popping one of these in the toaster and enjoying a quiet lunch.

So much better to have a hot peanut butter and strawberry jam.
