  • Love it... with some minor issues
    Verified Purchase

    I love this panini maker! It has paid for itself many times over and is so easy to use. I have made some AWESOME paninis using it! I wish that the plates were easier to clean, however - they don't come out, so I am left scraping burnt cheese and other stuff from between the plastic casing and grill plates after nearly every use. Oh well, it was a great deal and makes tasty sandwiches!

    This product is just the right size for one. Heats up quickly, grills within minutes. Light weight with a small foot print. Perfect for my small kitchen with little counter space.

  • This panini maker made a panini lover out of me.

    This Panini maker made a Paninl lover out of me. My whole family loves Panins now. It doesn't close on the thicker Paninis but it is still a great maker. I have already made several Panins in just a few days.

    This sandwich maker rocks! I would recommend brushing the contact grill very lightly with olive oil before placing a dense bread to grill so you can get the perfect grill marks on your sandwich! Don't use products like Pam Non-Stick Spray because it will gum up the plates; all it needs after cooking is a damp cloth to clean the contact plates.

  • panini grill
    Verified Purchase

    I am a gadget person so ordered the panini maker. My family and I have used it everyday since we got it. Makes perfect grilled sandwiches and cleans in a nanosecond just with a wipe with a paper towel. I have already ordered 1 for my daughter.

  • Great Griller
    Verified Purchase

    I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend. The colour is gorgeous and it melts cheese well while crisping bread! It beeps when heated and beeps when the meal 'should' be ready, this may be different depending on preference, great for me tough. Easy cleanup and doesn't stay heated long after unplugged. Only thing is the plates cannot be removed.

    Have used this panini grill just about every day since receiving it. The grill is so easy to use and makes the paninis extra fast. This sure beats the old fashioned way of grilling the sandwich on top of the stove in a pan. Don't hesitate to purchase this grill.

Questions & Answers

  • Q:

    "Does this item have interchangeable plates or do you use the same for grilled sandwiches and panini? Thanks."

    • A:

      The plates are not removable, so the same plates would be used for both grilled sandwiches and panini.

  • Q:

    "what is the difference between this and the better chef im-288r they look and read identical minus the 2$ difference?"

    • A:

      The items are different model numbers, so one is older and one is newer. Also the color is different on the items. This one is a 700 watt, as the other is 300 watts. Besides that, the items are very alike.
