Almost perfect


"Heats up quickly, cooks efficiently and is easy to use. Its one minor flaw is that when the top is lifted vertically any fat or moisture draining from it misses the drainage channel and ends up on your work-surface. A small defect, but spoils the...

Not too happy.


I have used this panini/grill maker. Not what I expected . Cheese does not melt, until bread is almost burnt . Not able to remove plates to wash them.

Yes this is a grill that gives a kebab shop finish to meat & veg. The plates do get very hot. It could do with temperature control and removable plates but then that would make it a more expensive grill I guess. I have just done a toasted sandwich &...
