Rated 5 out of 5Â by PrettyMindy Can't say enough about this awesome product!
We purchased our griddler after talking about getting a panini press. We looked around and say how versatile the griddler was and decided to get it. I can tell you, since we've had it we've put this thing to good use. We try and cook anything we can in it. We love it so much we've bought one for my parents, who use theirs just as much. We've used it for dinners (chicken, steak, hamburgers, hot dogs), lunches (grilled cheese, paninis, etc) and breakfasts (eggs, bacon, french toast). We recently bought the waffle plates and cannot wait to use them!!

This griddle is fabulous for a myriad of reasons. I use it to cook my entire breakfast (fried egg, English and sausage or bacon). It is fast to heat up and makes my lunch hour meal a snap. I make grilled sandwiches all the time. I have used it for pork chops, pancakes, ham steak, asparagus... and oh so much more. The clean-up is a breeze. I love it so much, I've bought 4 more and given them as gifts to family.
RUN don't walk to buy this ONE!

Love this panini press. The reversible plates are very easy to use, remove, reverse, and clean. It heats up very quickly for making sandwiches and turns out a beautiful product.
With a single sandwich, the heaviness of the lid smashes it quite flat. Two or more sandwiches maintain their shape better.
When the press is opened flat to function as a grill, it has terrible heat retention. I tried to cook pancakes and eggs and the batter and raw eggs ran into the drip pan before they would start cooking.

This is a really nifty gadget! It's small, portable and grills very well, from both top and bottom. Then, you can "fold" it out for a griddle, which I think is very cool. The drip container is handily located under the unit and is there for whichever mode you are using. It easily both slips out and clicks in for cleaning. The plates are reversible and very easy to clean up and take care of. I would highly recommend this to others, as Cuisinart makes good products.
