Kitchen gadget-lovers: fuzzles needs our help. She recently asked the community for panini press advice:
I have so far remained steadfast in my resolve to not purchase a panini press, but I am faltering quite quickly. A pending move has spurred most of this. I am thinking that this would be a great counter-top piece for super-quick sandwiches while settling in. Well, that and the fact that I will be living about 3 miles away from one of the best, if not THE best, Mom and Pop Italian delis in the metro. In short, we're talking preventative wallet-pummeling, folks. Sound good so far? The problem is, I want to find a quality press for around 50 clams. Is this even possible? Any input about your individual panini experiences, past and present, would be greatly appreciated. The good, the bad, the ugly, and everything in between! Thankful and passionate culinary fondles in advance!
At $80, the panini press that I have is out of her budget. However, if you're a sandwich lover, fuzzles, I recommend you definitely invest in a press. I've used mine countless times; it's so fun having a panini party! Do you have a panini maker? Share your tips with us below.
