**Craving those panini you enjoyed in Roma? **Or just wishing to create a little armchair holiday at home? Crack out the vino and heat up your panini press......then plan on a big siesta after lunch. ;-) **Nice features**I've been shopping for a panini press after becoming addicted to these sandwiches (a local deli sells them for $8-9 each, but that's an expensive habit to maintain). This model seemed to be just the ticket, with its nonstick surface, and dial-lock for perfect pressing and easy storage. The bonus? The instruction book (only one easy-to-read page of usefeul info) was filled with recipes! Prosciutto and Mozzarella, Chicken and Feta.........even Quick Pizza, Easy Fruit Turnovers, Chicken Quesadillas, and a few surprises I'll let you discover. **Easy to Use, Easy to Clean**This thing is a breeze to use, and oh-so-easy to clean. We love it! We were able to find fresh ciabatta bread at a local Albertson's, plus I picked up various cheeses, turkey, salami, sundried tomatoes, fresh spinach, pesto, black olives.....then just laid it out and we made the panini of our dreams! I paid about $40 for this happy addition to our kitchen. ***Libby's Hot Tip:*** Because I've been studying Italian for 5 years, I can't resist the urge to explain that *"panini"* is plural. One panino (uno panino), two panini (due panini). *Buon Appetito!* The Bottom Line: ***Libby Loves It!***
I gave it a 3 star because it came with a big scratch on the handle. So I had to return it.
No mess, easy to clean. Easy to store when you have little storage space. Doest over cook your meats or onions, or avocados. It's Great! I definitely recommend this product. Easy for teenagers to use also.
