|The Cuisinart Griddler™ Panini & Sandwich Press makes everything from popular panini to great grilled cheese. Designed like professional units, our floating hinge adjusts to sandwich thickness to perfectly grill thin or thick panini and sandwiches. A preset temperature ensures restaurant-quality results -- always crisp and golden brown.Use your Griddler™ Panini & Sandwich Press to grill sandwiches, breads and quesadillas. The word “panini” is an Italian term for grilled sandwiches. Panini can include a combination of ingredients such as vegetables, meat and cheese layered between two pieces of freshly baked bread. The sandwich is then pressed between two grill plates to toast the bread and warm the filling. Experiment with a variety of savory or sweet sandwiches for any meal. We recommend using freshly baked bread to produce the best-tasting panini. Popular breads for panini are focaccia, michette, ciabatta, and thick slices of Italian bread. The Griddler™ Panini & Sandwich Press was designed with a unique handle and hinge that allows the cover to adjust to the thickness of the sandwich you are preparing. This allows for even toasting and heating. Light pressure can be applied to the handle to press and heat the sandwich to your liking. When cooking two or more panini, it is important that the thickness of all sandwiches is the same so the cover will close evenly on the panini.|
Customer Reviews of Cuisinart GR-1 Griddler Panini and Sandwich Press
This is the 4th unit my family has purchased. Great grill. easy to use, simple and makes a great panini. This one we bought so we could make more paninis without the wait. easy clean up and takes the blah out of sandwiches.
I cook with this a lot now. It's really easy to turn on and clean. With Summer coming, no need to grill in the heat, hook it up at the house and enjoy!

It heats up quickly, and works like a waffle iron--one light says ready to go, the other says wait a minute. Pretty simple.
