  1. I don't have shares in the manufacturers or the retailers, but I wish I
    did. I'm not surprised they're out of stock.

    The old fashioned "Toast-Tite" was a much better concept.

    Sorry, only image I could find... and that is a knock off, original was
    round... made a yummy toasted sammich looked like a flying saucer, fill
    with whatever you like. I wish I knew what happened to mine.

    My mother used to use the Toast-Tite to make weekend breakfasts on the
    gas stove... we never went camping back then. My first taste of
    camping was under the boardwalk, up on the roof... you probably met
    your thrill on blueberry hill.

    aka "pie iron" or "sandwich maker" in camping supply stores. We have a
    couple of the double sandwich size of these for cooking over wood fires.
    They also sell burger irons and weiner irons. Don't let the name fool
    you as there are many things you can cook in them. Steak strips do
    quite nicely as does a piece of steak. Bacon is doable as is shrimp.
    Our favourite ones are made with pizza sauce and toppings followed by
    desert pies with apple pie filling and cheese. Friends of ours used
    theirs for breakfast when camping to make awesome egg and bacon
    sandwiches. The possibilities are endless as long as you have a spot
    for a campfire. Well, they do work good in a woodstove too so that's
    another possibility.

    They also work well on a gas range burner. That's the one failing I have
    in my electric range. Most of these "sandwich makers" that I see today
    are made of steel. The one my parents had was made of heavy cast aluminum
    and the heat distribution was much better. We mostly made grilled cheese
    sandwiches and variations. I miss that thing.

    My parents used to have one of them... it was never used until I had
    the bright idea of using it on our gas stove to make fried egg
    sandwiches. It was delicious and came into regular use, and eventually
    we bought an electric jafflemaker that did two at once. Yum! I missed
    my jaffles when I moved to the US so John bought me a cheap electric
    jafflemaker for Christmas. The booklet that came with it suggests
    using it for non-greasy potato cakes... maybe one day I'll try them!
