I can’t remember what happened to our GFG, but if I need to make a pressed sandwich these days I use two cast iron pans. Heat both, build the sandwich in one, heat up the other pan and then put it on top of the sandwich

it's actually not a bad device overall.

I used to have a foreman grill. I think I threw it away a decade ago. We've had an actual panini press for some time now. Cuisinart, I think. No complaints.

I have one of these. Got it as a gift and never would have purchased it for myself. That said, we like it quite a bit and would consider replacing it if something happened to it. https://www.amazon.c...k/dp/B002YD99Y4

We have a Breville we got as a gift. We use it a couple times a year at casual family gatherings where folks put together their own paninis.

Well ended up getting a GFG, with the removable/washable plates... I used it last night for a steak(NY strip) Did a good job on cooking the steak.

Very little smoke/ mess, and clean up was simple. Much better than the little original GFG I had 10-13 years ago. Tonight I’m going to try a jalapeño jack, and ham melt. I’ll put some Dijon, and this jalapeño mayo I have, it should be good.

That's the one I have. I feel like I use it at least twice a week. I make pancakes on it too. If you are on my Instagram, the grilled Mac and cheese I put up came from that yesterday.

I thought someone bumped a thread from 2006 then i realized the board has only existed since 2009. Remember when panini presses were a thing? I think i sent mine with the ex when we split.

Lol. The guy with the 300 year old Fred Flintstone stove technology is wondering if panini presses are "still a thing." :D
