Not worth the aggravation

Danielle Mcdermott, Amazon
29 September 2015
  • Summary: Let me start off by saying that I love this grill - when it's working. We use this grill for paninis, grilling chicken, making burgers, everything it's advertised for. We let it heat up until it's ready, cook our food, and then wait TWO hours before cleaning it to make sure that it's completely...

Read the reviews about switch failures. Here's another...

Bruce Bradford, Amazon

  • Summary: This unit will make great paninis until the switch overheats and breaks. It appears that the manufacturer opted for a very cheap switch that cannot handle the heat (mine was melted) or load and it fails as the result. Too bad that such a choice creates such a long-lasting impact on the brand.

  • Summary: I had heard rave reviews of this press and I could not agree more. Yes, some out there opt for "marketability" over quality. What do I mean? With removable plates you simply are not going to get as quality of a cooking surface.

Stay way from this grill. Poorly made.

BM258012, Amazon

  • Summary: I received this product around 4-5 months ago. The first one I got broke after ~1 month. After getting it replaced, the new one also broke after ~1-2 months. I am now sitting with a broken product haggling with Breville to have them return it - they are as difficult to work with as Comcast.

Not a keeper for me.

  • Summary: I bought this unit on sale at WIlliams-Sonoma. After living with it for a week, it's going back. My main quibbles. 1) The power switch is located on the side of the unit toward the rear. You can't really see it, so you're left to feel for it, it's also really small (see picture).

  • Summary: Should have listened to the reviews. Bought mine at Williams Sonoma and loved it for two months until the switch stopped working and I couldn't turn it on -- it is going back to WS tomorrow. I mistakenly thought Breville made good products. If you purchase, keep your receipts.

Just use the plug like the original.

D. Stack, Amazon

  • Summary: I just ordered it but still have the original one with no on/off button and no temperature control. Sounds like the original was better. Since you have to plug it in to use it there is no big reason for an on/off switch.

Poor design, quality makes the macine dangerous.

Norman Wixon, Amazon
9 February 2015
  • Summary: Agree with Dirk Williams review wrt the switch. The machine is in my view dangerous. The switch suffers from a lack of thermal protection. I am now returning my second machine with the same switch failure mode. The failure occurs after use, the machine is hot and the switch no longer turns it off.
