Deeper casting design for more fillings = Australia's best buy
Perfect results everytime for all your family's,quick & easy toasted sandwich treats , just use plastic, silicone or wooden utensils to remove cooked sandwich, never use metal utensils because they will scratch and remove the non-stick coating, i use my BTS200 mostly for all mushy and runny fillings eg [backedbeans/cheese,spaghetti/cheese,macaroni-pasta,savory mince,mashed potato etc ] because it seals all edges and cuts in half for easier & safer food handling [kids - elderly etc] , plus i use the Breville "BIG ONE" BTS100 Jaffle maker for most other fillings to create perfect super thick heavy "uncut" toasted sandwiches [Jaffles] when a greater variety of different fillings are required.
Simply the best
Better than any other toastie maker I've ever used. Toasts, cuts, melts, cooks, no sogginess. It's quick. It's perfect. I had the same machine for 6 years. I used it so much I needed another. Will never use any other toastie maker. I will always recommend the original and the best.
Failure of Teflon non-stick surface.
Our first Breville jaffle unit was in our families possession for over 40 years until it was stolen. The Teflon surface had remained perfect and scratch free over that time, so you must understand that we take care of our items.
I had this unit for a little over 11 months before the Teflon started to chip away and making sandwiches became virtually impossible, requiring you to find the sharpest knife you can find to pry them out.
The non-stick coating is coming off of the centre knife section, often easy enough to remove by fingernail. I've t...ried to forcefully damage other sections of the hot-plate and the rest of the coating is bullet-proof, it's obviously a bonding issue in the industrial process. It looks like the Teflon has run and laid on too thick. Someone said they had a newer unit that had the same problem and the newer designs are expensive and bulky, so I haven't looked in to replacing it. September 3rd 2019 Update: DO NOT BUY! Teflon surface failed AGAIN!
Purchased in April 2019.
I received this as a Christmas gift so I don't have a receipt, but the unit hasn't been used a lot and the sandwiches stick to the so called non stick coating. Today I noticed the non stick coating is flaking off and due to the health hazards of ingesting Teflon, I have decided to stop using it.
Breville should be ashamed for producing such rubbish - didn't even last 1 year. This pile of garbage if going to the tip and as someone who has always purchased Breville, from kettles to toasters and even a waffle maker, I will never buy or recommend breville again!
- Original BTS200 (2 Slice)
- Verified purchase
We use this all the time, it makes decent size sandwiches and you can fit so many fillings inside, it also accommodates the larger slices of bread which are a must for toasties. My only complaint would be that they don’t make one that could make 4 sandwiches at a time.
Not much chop but Possible redemption
Sticks, like everyone else seems to be having trouble with. My wife was going to bin it, but my son came up with a solution that seems to work pretty well. Cut your bread diagonally, put your triangles in and make 4 mini sandwiches. OK, sometimes it still leaks and I have to clean it, but it sure beats the results that occur when I use whole slices.
Bad non-stick and handle cracked
Seemed kind of ok at first. Heats up quick. Generally it seemed to seal my sandwiches ok.
After a while the non-stick started wearing off and sandwiches often stick badly.
Now the handle has fully cracked on one side when trying to close it. Looking at others, they have a full metal handle whereas this appears to be plastic.
has become a must-have, used non- stop
This lightweight, compact product is good as it provides new meal ideas quickly. It is easy to use and has been used over and over again. However, the toastie is sometimes not sealed properly, and the filling comes out or the toast edges just flaps open. Also, sometimes the toast does not brown very well leaving buttery slices.
Save your money
Although my Breville worked well for a while, it now is going into the bin as we are sick of getting ‘stuck, mushed up’ sandwiches. Like a lot of previous reviewers, I bought it from remembering the one we had years ago. Nothing like it, I’m afraid. I also see that a lot of the reviews are from 2015-16. Well, they obviously have still not solved the problems and, I might add, they have now gone up $10 in price!
The worst product...Absolute rubbish
I love toasties so thought would try out this product, so very disappointed, the bread does not seal, cheese and whatever else is in the sandwich is leaked out all over the toastie, when you open it there is just mush everywhere, the bread gets ripped to bits, I've only used it a few times, it is now just a useless piece of junk taking up space in my cupboard only because I can't bring myself to throw $40 in the trash!!!! Can't find my receipt so I don't think Big W will even give me a refund, Breville I need answers
Makes a great toastie!
I haven't had a Jaffle maker since I was a kid! This machine seals the bread perfectly - makes 4 1/2 sandwiches at one time, easy to clean and toasts quickly. Pretty cheap unit to make cheap and tasty meals. Perfect for movie night. Not a very big unit either, so stores easily in the cupboard. Im really happy with it!
Very good and works well
This sandwich maker is very handy for me and my family. My kids are very happy with this product as they can easily use it and it makes very crispy and delicious sandwiches for all of us. I am very happy with this and I am hoping it will work for us longer.
Disappointing - complete product failure
I have had my Breville Original for around six months - purchased as a Christmas gift. Even with very careful care and only using sponges for cleaning, a significant portion of the non-stick coating has come off. This renders the entire appliance useless, as it now rips sandwiches in half when you remove them from the mould.
After googling and searching the Breville website, I can find no mention of warranty, so I assume that my $100 has been wasted, and my husband's six month old gift is now destined for the trash. I would not buy this product again, and definitely warn other consumers not to purchase it.
Horrible - don't buy this !!!
I purchased the BTS 200 yesterday at Harvey Norman. What a massive disappointment. I used today the first time - following the instructions provided - but unfortunately when i opened it after 3 minutes the sandwich slices hadn't been sealed and as a result the cheese had leaked and is now solidly baked onto the - so called - non-stick surface. There is no way that i can get the stuck bread and cheese off without scratching the surface. If Harvey Norman doesn't provide us with a refund then the only choice I have is to throw it in the bin.
Very disappointed with Breville and will definitely not buy anything from this brand again.
my breville toastie maker has the same issue as mentioned by others.the non stick coming off sandwiches stick and crumble and you need to dig the mess out with a spatula used to have one of these years ago and it was great this newer one is junk. dont buy it. mines 6 months old and its gone in the bin.better off buying a $10 one from kmart
The surface is coming off and sandwich is sticking and tearing.
Really disappointing that Breville invented this product and hold a world wide patent on the cutting action of the toaster.
And it appears this is a common problem, I would think that under state laws in Victoria Australia this product is not fit for the purpose it was sold !
I think you should contact me Breville Australia.......
Definately nothing like the "Original" - The product is rubbish and a waste of money
I would give it zero stars, but that doesn't seem possible. Here are my reasons. I grew up eating jaffles from a Breville sandwich maker, and was delighted when I discovered you could still buy them. I bought one of these machines several years ago. The non-slip legs on the machine itself began to fall out. The green cover of the "ready" button fell off, and then all of the information about the non-stick that you are reading here also happened to me too. I found the sandwiches were starting to stick. Margarine, butter, regardless, they ...stick. To my horror, I realised pieces of black metal were in fact coming off on my sandwiches after only a few uses. It gets worse and worse, with every use, so that that your sandwiches become an annihilated mess, and the machine is unusable. The only way to get them out is to scrape them off. Silly me, I thought I must have had a faulty product, so I put it in the bin, and purchased yet another one. So keen was I to get my jaffles. Unfortunately, EVERYTHING I mentioned above has also happened with the next one. The legs, the light cover and the non stick failing. It is rubbish, and should be taken off the market. DON"T BUY IT! Can anyone recommend a Jaffle maker that actually works?
Dreadful. Don't buy it. Wish I'd read about it before purchase. EVERYTHING sticks. Your sandwich WILL fall apart, and all the bread will stick everywhere. Your sandwich will look like paella.. It just will. I felt great nostalgia purchasing this maker, taking me back to a childhood of toasties. I tried. I really did but it's GOING IN THE BIN. Just. Don't. Buy. It.
Do not purchase.
Terrible after only a few uses food sticks and sandwiches fall apart, awful trying to clean up the mess. Will be returned if I can the receipt.

It's a shame the Teflon coating in these sandwich makers are so poorly done, Breville must be aware of the problem but fails to address it. I say this because I replaced my original after the Teflon came off and the replacement did exactly the same thing. It's a health danger to the public that Breville hasn't fixed and they should be accountable for this.

Questions & Answers
why does Breville BTS100SIL Big One Sandwich Maker non stick surface peel off? The coating is said to be harmful This is the second Breville Sandwich Maker that has done this. Makes great sandwiches but as I have grandchildren I am loath to use the machine?
Can you please advise me if there is a retailer holding the BTS400model in Adelaide as i have only been able to find the BTS200?
I'm not sure. I purchased mine at Myer so I would guess that they should have the model or at least be able to order one in for you? Failing that, try David Jones or The Good Guys.
According to our distribution records - it appears that Betta and Harvey Norman stores stock this 4 slice jaffle maker

Where can I purchase bread that fits??? 12.5 x 12.5.
I agree that some mainstream bread doesn't fit. I have found that usually some sandwich loaves get compressed in transport or storage and you can't really stretch bread out.
I have found that if I buy the toast loaf that it generally fits as it doesn't get squashed as easily. However usually I just buy bread from my local baker. Also the Woolworths bread that they bake in store, usually around $2 a loaf, fits it really well.
Hope this helps.
Many thanks Adam, I really didn't expect a reply! I will go have a look and hope to find something that fits. But I can't recall seeing bread this big 12 X 12 cm, that is a big loaf.
Now that I have found the correct bread size at Woolworths (home brand) thanks to Adam.
I am now very happy with the Breville Original BTS200, turns out beautiful toasties every time with only minor clean up. I start from cold, make sandwich close the press and turn on when I am ready...usually by the time I have made my coffee those yummy hot golden toasties are ready my favourite being cheese & bacon.
Well done Breville priced at $38 @ BW its a bargain.
