As of now it has pressed well over 2000 sandwiches and it is still performing as it did the first day out of the box.
For household use this would probably be the last press you would ever have to buy.
grille - received as a wedding gift over fifty years' ago - was still working, we thought it might be time for an upgrade. Bad choice. This one was
used several times a week, plugging in for only the time it took to prepare one sandwich. It worked fine until recently - a little under four months.
Then, the screw/bolt that holds the top together and allows to be opened or shut came out, making it impossible to raise and lower the lid.
When my husband investigated and tried to discern if he could fix it - something he is very good at - he found that there was a design flaw that, over time, stresses that area and results in stripping the threads of that screw/bolt - a part that cannot be removed for replacement, making this grille totally unusable.
Amazon allows only a month to return this item, so I contacted Happy Haus, indicated as the seller. They responded and said that this was
ordered and shipped by Amazon and passed the buck back to them. I have not been able to locate any way to contact Amazon about this item now that the return time has passed. We loved this item before it self-destructed. Now - worthless. A costly mistake.
time has passed
Bought this instead of expensive heat press for t shirts.
Overall pleased. I made some mistakes but I'm thinking that's because it was my first attempt and of course I went big.
it is extremely easy to burn yourself.
You have to push and hold the lid down
It takes a bit longer that 15 seconds. As I had to do multiple presses. Partly because of the lid pressing thing.
The hinge gets in the way
Still with all of that I'm keeping the unit rather than get a heat press. If you plan on doing a lot of pressing as in selling bulk orders I wouldn't buy this. But for the casual maker I recommend it. Just be very careful it is ridiculously easy to get burnt.
It heats up incredibly fast, I'm talking probably 2-3 minutes max for it to be screaming hot and read to make a sandwich. It creates a very deep and even crust without burning. It requires absolutely no oil to make this crust, which has really helped us cut down on calories, and enjoy the quality of our bread without having to taste the oil / butter.
Cleanup has been very easy, with just a wipe with a paper towel. The lower grill top has a lip which keeps any stray juices from messing up your counter.
The construction is very high quality, this thing was much heavier than I expected. The chrome is pleasing to the eye, with the normal issues with chrome, ie: it likes to show off finger prints. It has a permanent spot on our counter regardless.
The cord in the back is reinforced with coiled wire so you don't have to worry about damaging the cord where it inserts.
It cools down quickly after you unplug it, and can easily be stored 20-30 mins after use in my experience (although follow the directions!)
Overall, I would not only buy this again, I'm strongly considering giving these as gifts. We eat a lot more Panini in our house. We've used this on probably 50+ sandwiches, and it still looks brand new.
As far as our usage so far - the buttered bread was perfectly browned, the cheese perfectly melted & the turkey was hot, cleanup consisted of wiping with a damp paper towel. It took maybe 5 minutes to warmup & another 5 minutes to make the yummy sandwiches. So far we're happy & look forward to making many more sandwiches with it.
*UPDATE* After a couple months of every day use, this thing is fantastic. My husband makes breakfast sandwiches every morning before work & I make lunch sandwiches or quesadillas a couple times a week. It's still going strong, it's great & I recommend it!
