Buying Toas-Tites…almost a science

Well, buying a Toas-Tite isn’t really a science.  You just have to know where to look.

Boy and I have had a lot of luck on eBay.  We’ve added 11 Toas-Tites purchased on eBay to our collection and Boy’s aunt found one for us at a garage sale.  There have been a few deluxe versions (Toas-Tites with a slightly longer handle with pointed wood ends and a fancier hook), a branded Boy Scout version, and even one in an original box!

We keep meaning to post a little bit about each one (so we don’t forget where they all came from) and the price we paid but on average, we’ve gotten them for $20-$65 (although the $65 was for the Toas-Tite in the original box with the original instruction booklet in almost mint condition).

In any case, for your reading and Toas-Tite-buying pleasure…we’ve added a whole page on How To Buy A Toas-Tite.

    Thank you for all the recipes. I just bought a Diablo sandwich maker from Amazon.Com. They are just like toas-tites except they are titanium and teflon coated (non-stick) so there’s no need to add butter to the outside of bread. They do, unfortunately, imprint their logo on the outside of the bread, but other than that, I like them a little more than the wrought-iron ones – much easier to clean.

      How neat! Looks like the Diablo is definitely the same kind of contraption. We might have to pick one up. Sounds like it’s useful to have a non-stick. 🙂 If you’d ever like to share a recipe, let us know!

    I purchased 2 Bene Casa sandwich presses that are almost identical to the Toas-tite. They are on amazon and shipped from a store called Goodman’s. Hate to use an off brand, but I cannot pay the $475 that people are charging on ebay for an old rusted toas-tite. I paid $11.98 for both!!
