Summary: I have had this for about 4 months now. Makes great Panini, easy to clean. Only thing I don't like is that the lid will sometimes slam down because of it's weight. Other than that, works fine, no troubles.
Summary: Love this grill. It's a little small but perfect for a counter top. Cooks evenly as long as the food isn't to thick.even then just turn it. Easy to clean.small enough to store just about anywhere.
Summary: If you have a spacy kitchen, get a larger one. This is a must have product, I love it and I use it all the time, it grills quickly everything. What I also loved is that the grease from the meat is being collected in a little "waste" dish underneath the grill platter and you are not consuming it.
Summary: Grill works OK, but doesn't open wide enough to make true panini or Cuban style sandwich. It's convenient for cooking small portions, like all grills it's size. In review to previous review, this thing is junk, and a complete waste of $. it will heat items only about half an inch thick evenly as lid does not pivot at all. Save your $ and buy a different, better product. This thing is NOT a panini press in any sense of the word, and it now resides in my garbage can.
Summary: I was looking for a press that had removable plates for easy cleaning. This one does. I had to pay a little more but it is worth it. Very easy to take the plates out as put them in the dishwasher. I have had items with non removable plates and they are hard to clean. There are many choices out there - recommend the removable plate kind.
Summary: i like the west bend gill because it has removable plates, not like the last one i had, i really like the builtin grease cup mounted under the grill cooking plates, i have used the george foreman grill and its nothing like the west bend grill, and i found out its more easy to put away with the size and weight, for one its alot easy to use and setup i had the grill for a month and i totally love using it, i would tell all my friends that you cant beat the price and the...
