Hamilton Beach 25450 Gourmet Panini Press

Hamilton Beach Panini Press (25450)

Make café-style hot sandwiches right in your kitchen with the Hamilton Beach Panini Press. Load up two slices of bread with your favorite meat, cheese and veggies, and create a satisfying meal in one easy press. Designed to accommodate everything from single-slice ham sandwiches to piled-high grinders, this Panini Press heats ingredients, melts cheese, and creates a mouth-watering crispy outer crust. Grill sandwiches of any thickness, thanks to a floating lid that expertly presses down onto the bread and leaves appetizing grill marks behind. Make multiple sandwiches at once; the grill plates measure 12 inches by 8 ½ inches and have a nonstick coating for easy cleanup. Choose from upright or horizontal storage, as the lid locks in place. The locking function is also handy for keeping the lid upright for making open face snacks or cleaning the plates. From grilled cheese to chicken quesadillas, the Panini Press offers the kind of versatility everyone needs in the kitchen.

Elevating sandwiches

A ham and cheese or tuna sandwich can be pretty boring. Take your classic cold sandwiches to the next level with the Panini Press. Who wouldn’t like a hot toasty sandwich with melted cheese and appetizing grill marks? Host a make-your-own panini party for an easy entertaining idea. Have picky eaters at home? Offer a variety of options, and let kids create their own idea of a perfect sandwich. Parents can have their own version for a meal that makes everyone happy.

Control your ingredients

Whether it’s a grilled vegetable sandwich on whole grain bread or a decadent three-cheese sandwich on white bread, the choices are endless. Thanks to an adjustable lid, this Panini Press will accommodate the thinnest slices as well as thick slices of artisan bread. Sandwich rolls, English muffins, pita bread, tortillas, and wraps are delicious alternatives to sliced bread. Café or restaurant panini sandwiches can be expensive and you may not know what ingredients are being used. The Panini Press is perfect for anyone who needs a fast, easy meal that can be customized to satisfy any taste.

Convenient to use and store

Choose from upright or horizontal storage, a thoughtful feature for the space-efficient kitchen. Two indicator lights signal power and preheating.

Tips for making perfect panini

Use vegetable cooking spray for convenient, stick-free cooking. Or if you prefer, brush cooking surfaces with vegetable oil before preheating. Use plastic utensils on the nonstick cooking surfaces. Thicker sandwiches may shift when being pressed. Use a plastic spatula to reposition. Place sandwich in center of press. When a recipe calls for fruit, lock the cover in place above the fruit so that it heats but does not contact the fruit. There is no need to press down on the handle. The weight of the cover will grill the top of the sandwich. Cleanup is easy. Let panini press cool down. Wipe cooking surfaces with damp paper towel or dish cloth.

Not just for sandwiches

We all know that hot grilled sandwiches are delicious, but this countertop wonder can do so much more. Go beyond the sandwich and try making a pizza or serving up quesadillas. Think outside the box and make dessert, perhaps grilled pound cake slices topped with strawberries and whipped cream.

You can't give this machine a bad rating. This Hamilton Beach Panini Press does one thing and one thing only, but it does it very well. If you enjoy pressed/grilled sandwhiches you will love this machine. As I write this I'm eating a feta/olive/artichoke/roasted peppers on pita sandwhich hot off the panini press, and it's scrumptious. I actually bought this as a christmas gift for my mother, but I probably use it more than she does.

The machine looks good on the counter, and has a large, non stick service. It's not on a hinge so it's designed to accept even the thickest sandwhiches without squeezing all the filling out. You can even "lock" the lid down to apply constant pressure, or lock it up to maintain minimal pressure or to not make contact with the top at all. It's great for quesidillas as well. Ignore the user that says it takes too long to heat up, it takes only a couple of minutes, about the time a waffle maker would take to heat. Even cooking on the stove you need to take a few mins to heat the pan! Also ignore the comment that this machine burns the bread before heating the filling, I've never had such problems, although I do wish there was a temperature control for further versatility. But my bread never burns... I find 2-6 min will brown the bread perfectly, from lightly browned to nice and crispy (depending on how you like it) without burning it at all. I've never burned anything on this machine. Maybe this would happen if you used the wrong bread, but I can't say for sure. I even once used it to grill some chicken, and it did the job nicely, though it's not really designed for that.

There are a few down sides. This is a no-frills unit. There is no included recipe book, just a few hastily thrown together ideas in the instruction booklet.

First off:

1) I've used it now for over 6 months and not a single flake of the teflon coming off. My husband is a panini addict too. The machine is used every other day at the very least!

2) The plates are not flat because they are not supposed to be! I know one reviewer commented that they hated it because its not flat. This is a PANINI machine and not a griddle.

3) One reason people's sandwiches are not hot through out could be because we are used to eating HUGE sandwiches. Remember this cooks from the outside in, so if your sandwich is HUGE, the middle is going to be cold. That is just common sense. I like more meat than bread when I have a sandwich because I am not a bread person. (I eat my hamburgers with no bun or only half a bun.) But my sandwiches on the panini are hot throughout and they are not skinny whimpy ones. And if you are going to have lettuce and tomato, put it on after you cook the sandwich. I personally do not like cooked lettuce, tomato, pickle, etc. on my sandwiches...YUK!

4) Another reason could be because you need to put your ingredients on evenly. Don't clump a bunch of stuff in the middle and then expect it to be hot, it's not going to. Lay your ingredients evenly across the sandwich and there shouldn't be a problem with it heating throughly. Also remember the thickness of the cuts that you put on effects it too. Slice your vegetables thinner and there shouldn't be a problem!

5) It doesn't take a long time to heat up if you do it right. You go in the kitchen, get out the panini machine, and plug it in. THEN go to the refrigerator and get your items, wash your vegetables, slice things up, etc. By the time you have everything ready, your machine with be hot and ready to go!

6) It's plenty big!

Mechanically, the press has a nice design and it works OK for a $40 item. The upper lid is not hinged, so it can be raised very high to accomodate thick sandwiches. Bread comes out nicely ridged and crunchy. It does take a while for the unit to heat to cooking temperature, however. The main problem seems to be how to cook the inside of the sandwich without burning the bread; for an average sandwich (3 oz. ham and 2 oz. cheese) after 1.75 minutes the bread is done, but the ham is not sufficiently warm nor the cheese melted. This may be an issue with all lower-end panini presses, I suppose; perhaps some experimentation with different bread types and cooking times will solve my little dilemma. In any case, so far the resulting sandwiches are better than if served at room temperature, but not as good as those heated in my toaster oven and then slapped together.

Excellent value because it's not just a panini press -- you can also use it as a contact grill for vegetables, burgers, etc. You do this by using a set screw to lock the upper plate at the height you want. Bingo: buy one appliance rather than two.

The upper plate has about 3" to 4" of travel, so you can press fairly thick sandwiches. The size is nicely compact, with the overall dimensions not much bigger than the heating plates.

The plates have very fine ribbing, so you can't use this grill to fry eggs or pancakes. If you want those options, consider the Breville SG620XL panini press/grill (which has flat plates that lock into 6 positions), or the smaller Hamilton Beach 25219 Contact Grill.
