How to get "panini lines?"

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

I do not have a panini press. I will be putting a weighted skillet on top of my sandwich.

However, id really like to achieve the "panini lines." I have a metal "grid" type thing that basically looks like 6 skewers perpendicular to eachother.

Would I put it on the bottom of the pan? Does it need to be hot to imprint the lines well enough?

Could you just use a skillet pan similar to this http://www.nisbets.co.uk/Ribbed-Skillet-Square/M653/ProductDetail.raction?VAT_INCLUSIVE_MARKER=TRUE&cm_mmc=Google+PLA-_-Kitchen-_-Vogue+Griddle+%26+Skillets-_-M653&utm_source=google+merchant+feed&utm_medium=pla&utm_term=Kitchen&utm_content=Vogue+Griddle+%26+Skillets&utm_campaign=M653&gclid=CNLVlpO9ir0CFagBwwod-5oA1Q Press the panini down on both sides at the end of your prep to toast? Or a toatie maker/toaster? If not, sorry not sure.

what about a grillpan. those have ridges similar to panini.

 

but I am wondering why exactly you do want panini lines per se!

is it about the looks? 

isn't good food more about FLAVOR?

just a thought.

It's about BOTH.  Interestingly, sandwiches with Pannini lines taste different (lgihter and more sophisticated) than flat grilled sandwiches.

I have both ridged and flat plates for my panini press, I prefer the flat, much more crunch to the bread
