The Panini Press a kitchen appliance must have

Villaware Uno Pro Panini Press is a favorite tool of italiantestkitchen.com

There are many appliances available to the everyday home chef. Some that are large and cumbersome, some small and portable, others that are used once, and stored away in the cupboard never to resurface for years! The one small kitchen appliance that is a must have in all kitchens, is the Panini Press. This double sided grill is small, powerful and versatile. Does a lot more then just sandwiches. You can cook hamburgers, steaks, chicken, vegetables and more!


If you’ve never had a Panini, which is an Italian sandwich, you have no idea what you’re missing. There’s just something about salty prosciutto, warm stringy provolone cheese, and peppery arugula, nestled between a toasted ciabatta bun, that a regular white bread peanut butter sandwich just can’t beat.

Almost all Panini Presses sold now come with non stick grills, which make for easy pressing, and even easier clean up. In most cases all that is needed is a damp, soapy cloth. They don’t take up much room, and can easily be left on the counter for quick use. The panini press varies in price, from your basic panini press that presses panini, to deluxe panini presses with a large cooking area with temperature controls. Which every one you buy, you can rest assured that you will not impress your friends, with scrumptious paninis, but you will use it a lot more then you did that old blender that’s still sitting in the back of your kitchen cupboard!
