Summary: I have owned several different brands of panini makers. This is the best I have used so far. This is a very heavy duty panini maker. The only downside is that it takes up a lot of space. It is like a commercial panini maker. The weight does help it to make the perfect panini though. Built to last.
Summary: Can I RMA this thing or exchange it? Not happy. Definitely not worth the $77.99 price tag when I bought it on 9/8/2012.
Pros: It has a nice grilling surface.

Summary: Love my DeLonghi. We've been using it for other food items in addition to Paninis. Because it toasts bread so well, we threw away our bread toaster -- no need for a toaster any more. The bread comes out very thing and crispy-- Bacon also comes out nice and crispy.
The DeLonghi Panini Press makes more than sandwiches!

Excerpt: I received the DeLonghi Indoor Grill and Panini Press CGH800 as a gift from my husband. I had not asked for it, and I honestly didn't think I would ever use it.
