Enjoy contact grilling all year long with the De'Longhi Contact Grill and Panini Press. You will always get consistent and thoroughly grilled and toasted foods with the fully embedded plate and contact cooking, as it distributes heat evenly to avoid any overly hot or cold spots. Impress your family and guests by preparing many different meals, from burgers to steak, to chicken and panini sandwiches; the adjustable hinge accommodates food of any size. For a healthier twist on grilling, the machine is slightly slanted allowing grease and oil to drain away from your food. And ensure precise grilling and toasting with the adjustable thermostat. If you've been grilling for hours, you won't be cleaning for hours, simply wipe off the non-stick grill plate and empty the drain cup. It's that easy! It's safety first with this contact grill -- the cool touch handles allow for easy movement once grilling or toasting is complete. Other highlights include an on/off indicator light and safety locking system for convenient, upright storage. You'll enjoy grilled foods and delicious toasted sandwiches for years to come!
