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.
-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 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.

It's a high quality cast iron but handles are weak , broken on the first use and that's why I ended up returning it.
It's a bit heavy for every day use over the stove top .

My best buy! Breads don't stick and I have never had a messy panini out of this press. Each panini takes about 1.5 minutes (45 seconds each side once you have it preheated). Read morePublished 17 months ago by nrynn
