  1. Read all the instructions.
  2. Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knots only.
  3. To protect against the risk of electrical shock, do not immerse cord, plugs or cooking unit in water or other liquid.
  4. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children.
  5. Unplug from the outlet and allow it to cool before cleaning or storing the appliance.
  6. do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the appliance malfunctions, or is dropped or damaged in any manner. Return the appliance to the nearest authorized service facility for examination, repair for electrical or mechanical adjustment.
  7. The use of accessory attachments not recommended or sold by the appliance manufacturer may cause hazards.
  8. Do not use outdoors
  9. do not let cord hang over the edge of table or counter, or touch surfaces.
  10. Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner, or in a heated oven.
  11.  Extreme caution must be used when moving an appliance containing hot oil or liquids.
  12.  To disconnect, remove the plug from the wall outlet.
  13.  Do not use the appliance for other than intended use.


Operating Instructions

  1. When using for the first time, clean the surface of the platens with a damp cloth, and wipe dry. Then smear the platen with butter, margarine or cooking oil.
  2. Plug the sandwich toaster into a 220 volt A.C. power point, and ensure that the indicator light (red) comes on, signaling that power is available.
  3. Close the sandwich toaster and prepare a sandwich while the appliance is heating.
  4. When the sandwich toaster is ready (after about 5 minutes) the indicator light (green) will extinguish.
  5. Fully open the sandwich toaster. Place a slice of bread in the bottom half with the buttered side against the platen.
  6. Fill the sandwich with desired ingredients pressing the bottom half into the platen.
  7. Place on the top slice of bread, with buttered side-up and carefully close the two parts of the appliance together. Do not force shut, steam will be ejected between the platens whilst doing this, so care must be taken to ensure that fingers do not get burnt.

NOTE: During toasting the indicator light will cycle “on and off” while the thermostat keeps the sandwich toaster at the right temperature.

  1. Your sandwich will be ready in 2-3 minutes, or longer to suit your taste.
  2. Open the sandwich toaster and remove the sandwich, using a plastic or wooden spatula. Never use a metal knife ad this may damage the non-stick coating.
  3.  Close the lid to preserve the heat until ready to toast the next sandwiches.
  4.  Prepare further sandwiches if required whilst one is cooking.
  5.  After use, remove the plug from the wall socket.


Hints for Best Results

 Always preheat before use. Plug cord into power while preparing the fillings. For soft or liquid sandwich fillings use medium sliced bread, white or brown. If small amounts of filling use toasting bread. Flavored butter may also be used.

For added flavor use bacon dripping. Brush dripping outside of the bread.

Suggested garnishes for savory sandwiches are lettuce, parsley, mint, cress, stuffed olive halves, onion, tomato, etc.

A teaspoon of sugar sprinkled on the outside makes toasted sandwiches crisper (especially with fruit fillings).


Serving Suggestions

There are many combinations of ingredients you can put inside 2 slices of bread, but for something a little different why not try pre-rolled puff pastry sheets cut down to sandwich size or pita bread.

Always place the buttered side against the platen. Butter is not necessary inside the sandwich but will, of course, enhance the flavor if added. You could also try other spreads in your sandwich such as pates, pastes, savory sauces, mustards, chutneys, etc.

Here are a few suggested sandwich fillings to start you off:

Cheese and Asparagus
Bacon and tomato
Pate and Scrambled egg
Cheese and Tomato
Bacon and Marmalade
Salami and Tomato
Ham and Pineapple
Beans and Bacon
Spaghetti Bolognaise
Scrambled Egg and Tinned Prawns
Peanut Butter and Bacon
Pate and Ham



After use and before cleaning, remove the plug and wait for the toaster to cool. Wipe the inside and edges of the platen with absorbent paper toweling or a soft cloth.

Should any fillings be difficult to remove pour a little cooking oil onto the platen and wipe off after 5 minutes when the food had softened.

Wipe the outside with only a slightly moistened cloth ensuring that no moisture, oil or grease enter the appliance.

Do not clean the inside or outside with any abrasive scouring pad or steel wool as this will damage the finish.

Best Razors for Men

Best Razors for Men come from the well-known brand Gillette. It’s been proven that Gillette produces the best razors, the safe razors for men of all time.

Best Razors for Men-Gillette Rubie II

1. Gillette Rubie II

The Gillette Rubie II is a double blade for comfortable shaving. It is a disposable razor packed in Vietnam and imported by the Procter & Gamble Philippines, Inc.

The exact physical address of Procter & Gamble Philippines, Inc. is 10F Net Park, 5th Avenue, Crescent Park West, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig 1634 Philippines.

My Review

I would like to be particular on this yellow color for the reason that this is what I was using in the 1990s until this time. It was by trial and error that I can compare other razors with this Gillette Rubie II.

The first time I owned a shaving kit was when a lady bought one for me as a gift at Christmas. It looks like the image below.

Best Razors for Men-Butterfly Razor

This shaving chrome is not disposable. On the kit, the razor-blade is included. If the blade becomes dull then you buy another blade and insert it. It is the whole blade, the double blade. You can have a variety of choices with razor blades but I assure you the best brand of a razor blade is Gillette. Gillette can last longer than other brands, so if you are not using the disposable one and you like this, it is best to have the Gillette blades than others.

Why I Choose the Disposable and Fixated Gillette Rubie II Razor than Others?

First reason, of all the razors I tried this design of the Gillette product is a perfect one for me. I seldom get hurt unless I’m too careless. In my opinion, it is not because other razor blades are sharper than this Gillette Rubie II. It is how it’s perfectly designed. I had been several times cut in the skin by other designs of razors but this Gillette Rubie II as I said unless I am so careless and use it improperly I get hurt. It is the safest disposable fixated razor that you can trust.

The second reason, it is a disposable razor type but I tell you it lasts longer than what you expect. You can use it not only 5 times or 10 times but even more depending on how you use it. As long as you won’t accidentally rub it to your nails you can use it more than ten times.

I usually use one for several months before it can be disposed of due to dullness. But I did not waste something, rather I’ve taken back more than what I bought.

The third reason, the fixated design allows you to fit through your hand the angle you wanted. There are designs that move at two angles but I don’t want it. I am not the sole one making the angle through my hand but the razor has its own. The added angle that comes not from your hand will accidentally cut your skin.

The fourth reason, the price is reasonable, you shaved several times, benefited several times with a minimal price and because of that, you want to buy again because of that benefit it offers. You need not have a single Gillette Rubie II a very long time but it’s just enough to have the blades safe from rust because of being wet when used.

2. Gillette Mach3 Turbo Men’s Razor

Best Razors for Men-Gillette Mach 3 Turbo

Review from the User

A smooth shave, easy to find and feels great in the hand certainly make Mach3 razors a must! Thanks for sharing your love and being a part of the Gillette family.

This razor is a staple. I’ve used it in the past and the shave is so perfect. Very little effort to achieve a perfect shave with no nicks or cuts! You can shave with only soap! The only downside is that EVERY time I drop it, the blade cartridge pops off.

I have tried many different razors (from several various brands) over the years and I must say that the Gillette Mach 3 has to be one of my favorites yet! It is lightweight, feels good in the hand, the refills are easy to find(and fairly inexpensive), and most importantly delivers a nice smooth and close shave.

Gillette Mach3 manual razors for men features stronger-than-steel blades that stay sharper longer (vs. Sensor3). With sharper blades (first 2 blades vs. Sensor3), it is engineered to last 15 comfortable shaves. These Gillette razors feature a lubrication strip that glides to help protect your skin from redness and a microfin skin guard that stretches the skin and prepares hair to be cut. The Mach3 men’s razor features a premium handle, expertly balanced and weighted for a great shaving experience. Mach3 manual men’s razor fits all Mach3 blade refills.


3. Gillette Fusion5 ProGlide Power Men’s Razor

Best Razors for Men-Gillette Fusion 5


Gillette Fusion5 ProGlide Power men’s shaving razor with FlexBall technology, responds to contours and gets virtually every hair. It features 5 precision blades for incredible comfort (vs. Mach3). With Gillette’s thinnest and finest blades (first 4 blades, vs. Fusion5), ProGlide allows less tug & pull (vs. Fusion5). The Precision Trimmer on the back is great for hard-to-reach areas such as under the nose and sideburns. In razor sets, one razor blade refill equals up to one month of shaves. Fusion5 Proglide razors fit all Fusion5 blade refills.
• With FlexBall technology, ProGlide men’s shaving razor responds to contours and gets virtually every hair

1. The Best Just Got Better!    

I always use Gillette Razors and didn’t think it could get much better than the Proglide but I was wrong, I was brought this by my wife and couldn’t wait to use it and I was not disappointed, it is the most comfortable shave I have ever had and it felt so much easier to use I was actually surprised at how quickly I finished shaving, this razor definitely shaves more hair per pass than previous razors. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who will listen and thank you, Gillette, for inventing this, it is a huge improvement on a razor that I didn’t think could be improved.

2. Not very impressed

Some Tips to Remember

Shaving cream, foam or gel can help make the razor blade last longer. It softens the hair for easy cut and you will not feel irritated.

If you happen to run short of these you can use bath soap and warm water. I usually shave after bath and often times I don’t use soap, it’s just enough that the hair is wet for a minute before it’s shaved.
