Worth the discounted price, but not quite the full price
You get what you pay for. I found that the button that releases the bottom plate is difficult to operate; it's very stiff. There isn't an on/off button so you can't leave it plugged in. I haven't tried the waffle plates, but I've toasted sandwiches, which were delicious, and I've used the flat plates for croissants which were out of this world. The sandwich plates are not suited to farmhouse style bread, so you'll need to cut the bread down so that it fits inside properly. A regular square loaf is probably the least hassle to use in it. It wouldn't cope well with very thick bread. Not a terrible choice, and makes good sandwiches, but you'd need to spend more for a better bit of kit.
