Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sunshine02 Easy clean-up, best quesadillas maker!
I couldn't wait to get my new quesadilla maker to replace my 5 year old smaller broken model. I make quesadillas for my kids at least 4 times a week. Sometimes for lunch on the weekends (they hate plain white bread for sandwiches) or for an after school snack for my son. I can have a quesadilla made in less than 10 minutes when we are in a hurry and it is so easy to clean up. Cheese wipes right off with a paper towel when the maker is still warm. My son likes how crispy and lightly browned the tortillas get. He says I make the best quesadillas. His favorite is just shredded co-jack with deli ham. I slice it in to triangles with a pizza cutter following the lines that are pressed into the tortilla. They end up being a great size for little hands and are easy to dip in salsa.
If your cheese is running over the unit, your using way too much. I haven't had any trouble with messes that could easily be cleaned with a paper towel. It heats up quickly and cools down fast once unplugged. it easily stores up-right in our pantry which is nice because it doesn't take up much space. I would recommend this for quick and easy meals or snacks!

I may just need to learn how to use this quesadilla maker. I have used it only once so far. While the quesadillas were definitely tasty (chicken, spinach, onions, cheese), the appliance required LOTS OF TIME TO CLEAN after use. The cheese was all around the outside edge of the heating plate, even going UNDER the edge of the heating plate, VERY DIFFICULT to remove it from between the heating plate and the red housing of the appliance. I had to use lots of paper towels, tooth picks and Q-tips. I was NOT able to close the top down tight enough to cut the quesadilla into wedges. Next time I will be sure to leave at least an inch perimeter with no filling, maybe more. I am hoping that will prevent the cheese from squirting out when I try to cut it into wedges. Apparently there cannot be very much filling, because the top of the appliance would not close flat during cooking, so the top tortilla did not get heated on the opening side, so it was not crisped on that side. Maybe the quesadilla needs to be slid (turned) 180 degrees midway through cooking time? I used 10" tortillas. Maybe the appliance would work better with smaller tortillas instead? I will try various methods to get it to produce yummy quesadillas, without creating such a time consuming mess to clean.

If you only want a cheese quesadilla, this works fine. But this unit is not deep enough to allow "any" filling, ie:, meat, veggies, etc.

Love making quesadillas on this maker. They aren't soggy or too hard, just right. Love that it has a lil dish to catch any over spillage....yes I tend to over stuff @ times. All around great product.
