Panini Grill = Delicious Sandwiches

November 12, 2008 | By andrea | Filed in: Cookware & Cooking Gadgets.

If you’ve ever had a panini than you know how good they are. Warm, crunchy, often gooey (depending on the ingredients) and delicious. With all the ingredient possibilities, you could enjoy a different panini everyday. Oh, what a beautiful world it would be! I recently received a Villaware UNO ProPress Panini Grill from some girlfriends as group birthday gift. Not only was I surprised but I was also elated with my new cooking tool. I love cooking gadgetry! Anyway, my new panini grill is a beautiful little appliance. I feel like I’m working in a bistro when I’ve got it on the counter. Not only is it good-looking, but it’s functional, too. It’s got a good-sized non-stick cooking surface (11″x9″), adjustable temperature control and a commercial-style handle. You can even grill meat on it, although I haven’t tried that yet. Unfortunately, the cooking plates aren’t removable (which would aid in clean up) but that’s a small sacrifice for a delicious grilled sandwich.

The first sandwich I made on the panini grill was a simple ham & cheddar on wheat bread for my kids. They each devoured their share then asked for more, which of course left me beaming. When I told my 6-year-old that I was glad he liked the sandwich, he replied, “I don’t like it. I LOVE it.” Well there you have it…you better believe I’ll be using my panini grill on a regular basis if it continues to get that kind of a response out of a simple ham & cheese sandwich. Thank you, girlfriends (you know who you are).
