I am looking for a good quality Panini/Grill for home use. Looking for something that will last a LONG and is High powered, so my budget is not that restricted. But can't be ridiculous.
I was gifted an unmarked stove top non stick panini grill it works great the trick is to heat the top plate while heating the "pan". It also takes up very little space and is easy to clean.
I have a Cuisinart Panini/Grill and it works very well. Highly recommended, it is a bit pricey, but well worth it.
I have a Breville grill which has lasted me for almost 10 years now. The model is discontinued but there are new models. Mine has flat plates which allow it to cook quesadillas, warm up pizza etc.
Forgot to mention in my earlier post that the Cuisinart has reversible plates one for grilling/paninis and one for cooking pancakes or making grilled cheese or the like.
