Nicer than expected.
Sharon Letts
Handles are too short for a fire pit, too long for a grill -- given the choice, their normal (pie iron) length handles would be best, we think.
Penelope Pitstop
Toasting a sandwich in this method just makes the flavors come alive, and you really can use just about anything to make your sandwiches.

Color Name: Cast Iron
This is a cast iron panini press. Which means it is heavy, especially with the long handles. Because it is iron , you need to cure it before using it the first time, so that it will not rust over time. This means you unscrew the handles, place oil in side the surface of the press and leave it in the oven for an hour so that the oil seals the surface. This is a one-time thing. Once you start using it, you should avoid using water to clean it, - use a dry sponge or paper towels. One useful feature is that you can unhook the two surfaces, and place each one on a burner to preheat the press before using to make the paninis even faster.

The paninis come out outstanding. I use it on a gas burner at home, an electric burner would not work. I have not tried it in the grill or outside, but reckon it would work as well as in the gas burners.

I have used the Foreman-type panini makers that you plug in, put the paninis are infinitely better with this product. I would use the plug-in type only to make a grilled cheese sandwich for the kids.

Some tips with the paninis- use the best bread you can find, like a baguette, make sure the filing has adequate salt and paper, rub olive oil on both outer surfaces to get the crispy crust, turn often and open the press to see the toasting progress.

Enjoy!

I loved the idea of getting a cast iron panini cooker because I wanted to avoid the nonstick panini grills out there. It is a very heavy piece, so if the user has problems with hand/wrist strength, this may not be the item for you. The unit is made to be used on the stove (electric or gas), cooking the panini on one side and then flipping over to the other. The two cast iron plates come completely apart at the hinge, and you then have each plate attached to a metal rod with a wooden handle, making clean up easier. However, if the handle problem is fixed, I believe that this would be a really nice item to have in the kitchen.

I gave this only 4 stars because when I attempted to unscrew the metal rods from the plates in order to place the plates in the oven to "season" them as instructed, one wooden handle started spinning around the metal rod, and therefore I could not unscrew it from that plate. Looks like the handles are poorly attached to the metal, and should be secured much tighter. So, I am returning the unit after not having been able to test it out, so I can't speak to how it works.

Color Name: Cast Iron
We bought two Rome #1305 Panini Press Cookers to use in our camper, and were very disappointed with them. Rome usually makes legendary stuff, but feel they failed terribly on this product's design.

-Handles are too short for a fire pit, too long for a grill -- given the choice, their normal (pie iron) length handles would be best, we think.
-Cast iron portions are different: one half is ribbed inside, smooth inside on the other -- only one side of the sandwich gets the desired grilled appearance a panini is known for, the other is a plain toasted look.
-Shape and size requires special panini-shaped bread, any standard sandwich loaf will not do -- fine when camping near mega-marts, but on the road, unless you use hot dog buns, many small-town grocery stores don't stock a bread that fits.

Tried them once, they lived up to Rome's quality, but functionality was severely lacking. Since we couldn't return them, they now sit on a shelf in the garage... Thankfully, Rome makes another product that works even better for panini use! We've since purchased, and strongly recommend Rome's #1605 Double Pie Iron with Steel and Wood Handles for making not only panini sandwiches, but also a variety of other items like grilled kabobs, a couple grilled cheese sandwiches in each, or even roasting fresh garlic and searing vegetables.

With limited storage space in the camper, we'd recommend you leave Rome's #1305 Panini Press at the store, and buy the Rome #1605 Double Pie Iron instead -- everything we originally wanted, and more!

I bought this as a gift for my mom and dad. They used it and said that it made a great panini sandwich. They will definitely be making many more!

This is a very nice panini press the only thing I don't like about it is the latch that keeps the handles together other then that it grills great

Bought this for my vegetarian daughter. She makes wraps, omelettes, fritters, cheese or baked bean toasties and cooks her veggie patties on an open fire when we go camping. Easy to clean too.
