Cornell Hello Kitty Sandwich Maker

I just received this super cute Sanrio Hello Kitty Sandwich Maker from Cornell. I've shared about the Sandwich Maker on my blog last month. They were super hot and were sold out then. I've been waiting for their new shipment to arrive, so happy to finally receive the Sandwich Maker. :)

The Sandwich Maker makes a Hello Kitty imprint on the sandwich. Great for whipping up something kawaii fast. :)

This is the pretty Sandwich Maker, love the colour! It is retailing at a promotional price of $39.90, while stocks last. You can buy one at all major electronic stores. :)

The product is easy to clean, just sweep away any crumbs with a soft brush, and wipe both the interior and exterior with a damp cloth.

To use, simply preheat the Sandwich Maker until the green light indicator goes off. Place a slice of bread at the base, add in your fillings, leave some space all around. Top with another slice of bread and toast for around 3 minutes.

I filled our toast with the beef mixture used in Sloppy Joes and some shredded cheese.

Yummy, the boys and I had these for lunch yesterday. Sloppy Joes are typically serve with hamburger buns, but the fillings are great with toasted bread too. I'm sharing the recipe below. :)


  • 300g minced beef
  • 1/2 medium onion, minced
  • 1/2 green pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can tomato purée, around 300g
  • 4 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 4 hamburger buns
  1. Heat oil over medium heat, add onion, green pepper, celery and garlic. Stir fry with some salt and black pepper. Cook till the vegetables are softened, around 5 minutes.
  2. Add in minced beef, break up the meat and cook until it is no longer pink.
  3. Stir in tomato puree, tomato sauce and worcestershire sauce. Simmer till the sauce thickens, stirring occasionally.
  4. Taste and season with salt and black pepper, if desired. Spoon onto toasted hamburger buns and serve.
  • Beef can be replaced with other meats like turkey, chicken or pork.
  • Beef mixture can also be served over pasta.

  3. Looks cute and yummy and I like the part where you can add fillings to the toast! :)

  4. Such kind of sandwich really good for children. By looking over the cartoon picture they eat all their lunch and breakfast. I am also having sandwich maker but it does not have any printed image.

  5. Hi may I know the weight of the can of tomato puree used?

    1. Let me check tomorrow, I'll update the recipe tomorrow night. :)

  6. I hope my post just posted, but if not! Loved this I just got my Hello Kitty Sammie Maker! Did you use Texas Toast? Did you butter bread? And I totally ordered that HK paper!

    1. Tk u, Lindsey. No, I did not use Texas toast, just the usual white bread. Did not butter the bread either.
