Average press The surface area to panini or grill anything is quite small even when grilling with both the sides down. The panini press makes okay paninis but even with the hinges, a sandwich with only three pieces of bread gets distorted. If you're looking to make big paninis, I'd go with a bigger press. For household use to crisp up a sandwich or grill a few shrimps, it's okay. Pretty average - nothing special. April 17, 2013
doesn't work the instructions were very clear about what to do to make it work. problem is, the green light never turned on. the product ended up smoking cause it was so hot, stinking up my whole kitchen. November 15, 2012
very disappointed I was looking for a panini maker for my daughter's apt. she made a tortilla with ham and cheese to try it out and had burned grill marks on it before anything inside was hot or melted. Plus it smoked, which could just be the plates tempering the first time. She put it on my panini maker and was able to get the same sandwich, hot and melted without any more burning on the outside. I think this panini maker gets too hot for paninis. It needs a temperature control. July 6, 2012
Best Panini Ever I didn't want to buy the most expensive Panini maker in case I didn't like it...well, this certainly is the best one. We use it as a panini maker and a fantastic grill. Easy to use, easier to clean up and what a breeze to set up. Great grilled ham and cheese sandwich maker and we had the best lamb chops the other evening. I am coming to rely on this since it takes up so little counter space. Great job West Bend. January 25, 2012
