Cornell Hello Kitty Sandwich Toaster

Do you remember the Cornell Hello Kitty Sandwich Maker I shared before previously? This time, I am sharing the Hello Kitty Sandwich Pop Up Toaster from Cornell.

This is the kawaii toaster I'm referring to, which lets you make a Hello Kitty print on your toasted bread. I received it last Thursday and was eager to try it out the following day. The toaster comes with a cover lid that helps to keep dust out when the toaster is not in use. It also comes with a removable tray at the bottom that helps you to get rid of the bread crumbs.

The toaster is a breeze to use. It comes with an adjustable knob for you to adjust the heat settings. I suggest setting it to around 3 for your first try. After that, you can turn the heat level up or down, depending on how dark/light you want your Hello Kitty print to be.

I made a grilled chicken sandwich for our dinner. I omitted the onions for my boys' sandwiches as they don't like onions. I will be sharing the recipe at the end of this post.

The Hello Kitty Pop Up Toaster is available at all major electronics and departmental stores.

If you are staying in Singapore, you can now stand a chance to win a Hello Kitty Toaster or Sandwich Maker, I will share about it in tomorrow's post. I will also share another recipe for you to try with the Sanwich Maker tomorrow. :)


2 slices of bread
1 chicken breast
1 slice of cheddar cheese
1 tsp sake
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 onion, sliced
2 tbsp teriyaki sauce ( 3 tbsp water, 3 tbsp soya sauce, 1 tbsp sake, 1 tbsp mirin, 1 tbsp sugar)
1 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp mustard
mix of salad greens

  1. If you do not have a bottle of teriyaki sauce. You can make some by simmering 3 tbsp water, 3 tbsp soya sauce, 1 tbsp sake, 1 tbsp mirin and 1 tbsp sugar till the mixture thickens slightly. Set this aside first. 
  2. Butterfly cut the chicken breast. Marinade chicken with salt, black pepper and sake for half an hour.

  1. No one can resist this cute toaster!

  2. This looks delicious, love the Hello Kitty print too!

  3. Hi, between this bread toaster and the sandwich maker you reviewed previously, which one is more user-friendly? Which one does the Hello Kitty print come out better? Thank you. -- Crystal

    1. Crystal, both are user friendly n easy to use, if really must choose one, I'll say toaster slightly easier than sandwich maker. The hello kitty print comes out different for both, sandwich maker is like an imprinted hello kitty, whereas toaster one is a mark. I would say choose on whether u need a sandwich maker that makes sealed sandwiches or a toaster. They are both gd n wks well.

  4. Ming, thank you for your reply! Will go to the shop to check out the toaster and sandwich maker tonight!. You have a good weekend ahead! -- Crystal
