Toas-Tite® brand pie iron
Only a Toas-Tite® brand pie iron can make the special hot sealed toasted sandwich we call a Toas-Tite.
What makes a Toas-Tite® brand pie iron different from other sandwich toasters? First is Toas-Tite’s retro, space-age shape. Sure the flying saucer shape looks cool, but it’s the way the heat is evenly radiated over the cast aluminum surface that creates the perfectly toasted sandwich.
Next is the genius of the interlocking Top & Bottom, that creates the perfect seal. The seal not only creates the pocket but allows the Toas-Tite® to steam-heat the filling inside. Be careful – the fillings stay hotter than the toasted bread. Even heat distribution and interlocking pieces make for perfect melted cheese and hot fillings without burning the bread.
Why do we call the Toas-Tite® a pie iron – it’s not made of iron?
Even though the Toas-Tite® was first sold in 1945 and was a big housewares hit, the company that made them closed up in 1953. Loved and used for over 70 years the Toas-Tite® brand is still not well known. In the age of Google and SEO, Toas-Tite® falls into the category of pie iron, pudgie pie maker and mountain pie maker. Hopefully one day you will search the name Toas-Tite® to find us, but for now we are a pie iron made of cast aluminum.
