I was looking at electric panini grills, but didn't really want another appliance that I would have to store on a shelf or cupboard. I found the Calphalon panini grill pan to be easy to use, clean and store. It goes on the stovetop. I preheat the pan with the stainless steel lid, while I put my sandwich together. Then I brush the pan and bread with olive oil, put the sandwich on the pan and put the lid on top of the sandwich. I let it grill for a few minutes, turn over the sandwich and grill the other side. I get those great grill marks, and the lid helps flatten the sandwich and heats it too. I've also used the pan for salmon fillets, hamburgers, sausages. It does a beautiful job. Cleans up well because it's nonstick! Easy to store as well. Love this pan!

I purchased this pan last fall and I love it! It not only makes great panini's, it's wonderful to grill chicken breasts, steaks, veggies and even hamburgers! Of course, I originally purchased it to make panini's, but one evening it was raining and we were to have grilled chicken breasts on the outdoor grill. I grilled the chicken in the panini pan on my stovetop and wa-la, it performed wonderfully! The lid is heavy, but the pan isn't, so if you have concerns over its weight especially if you have issues with your hands/wrists as I do, just lift the pan and lid seperately. Enjoy it and experiment!

After reading all the reviews of the other mechanized panini presses my wife and I decided to go with the stove top method and I can say I am impressed. The very first paninis I made this morning were nothing short of spectacular. The paninis browned evenly on both sides (I used extra virgin olive oil or EVOO as Rachel Ray likes to say on the outside of the sandwich), the inside ingredients cooked/melted and the press really keeps the sandwiches squashed together.

The only downside (if you can call it that) is this product can not go into the automatic dishwasher. It comes with several warnings that it must be handwashed. But for such a magnificent cooking utensil I'm more than willing to baby it.

If you (like we were) are debating between the more expensive machine presses vs this less costly alternative you won't go wrong with choosing this panini pan & press.

I bought this pan and press for my parents as a Christmas gift. We have used it daily for the past three days to make panini, toast stollen, make garlic bread slices, and we are making lamb chops on it for dinner tonight. The lid is heavy, as it should be, to hold down bulky ingredients, and the pan is not too heavy and has a stay-cool handle. The rectangular shape and size make it perfect for grilling two sandwiches side by side, even if you are using big slices of bread. I'm on line right now to buy myself one! Mom has dubbed it "Best Pan Ever". I did a lot of research and for the money, you cannot beat this pan for weight, shape, size, ease of use and ease of cleaning, and versatility. Not by a long shot!

This was the most reasonably priced, quality panini maker I could find. It also requires very low heat to toast the bread nicely (found that out the hard way - burned the first two sandwiches) so I guess in that sense you could also label it energy-efficient.

I've actually only used it once for making a panini so far. I've cooked a steak on it, which was okay. My favorite thing to do with it is grilling vegetables, especially asparagus. I keep olive oil in a spray bottle. I spray the asparagus and grill it in the pan. I will never mush-up asparagus again by boiling it.

I received this as a gift and was so impressed with the versatility of the pan! It works beautifully for years now and I've made many varieties of panini, quesadillas, and grilled veggies. Some of my favorite panini combos are: 1) apple, bacon, brie; 2) tomato, mozzarella, pesto; 3) avocado, pepper jack cheese, tomato.

To get grill marks on both sides of the panini: Put two slices of bread on the heated pan, only put your cheese on one slice, and all your toppings on the other slice. Once the cheese is mostly melted, put that bread slice on top of the toppings slice. Then use the lid to press the pieces together and let it heat through. I like focaccia best because it presses well without losing its texture but I've also used soft wheat bread and sliced white bread successfully.

The pan is also great for quesadillas! I put a tortilla on the heated pan and spread cheese and salsa on half the tortilla. Once the cheese starts to melt, fold the tortilla onto itself and use the lid to press together.

I've used the pan as a grill for veggies like zucchini, red pepper, green pepper, and onions by lightly spraying it with olive oil and adding a little garlic just before I'm ready to take the veggies off.

I rarely put the burner above medium heat. I've found it's best to put your oil on, set the burner to medium-low and let the pan heat up for about 5 minutes before adding your bread or tortilla.

I agree with everything everyone else said. Great Calphalon quality, actual pan weight is very manageable, large enough for 3 paninis on rye, easy to clean. I was considering an electric panini grill but am glad I went with the stovetop version, ecologically efficient and will probably last a lifetime. Worth every penny.
