Start to cleaned and put away in 15 minutes. There's some technique to stopping your panini slide! But on the whole brilliant, compact too!

Smaller than I expected!

Delivery was fast and within the estimated date. Smaller breville than I expected by good storage size and has a lock on it. Does what it says on the tin, so see how it goes, as only just received it.

Perfect panini's (and toasted sandwiches)!
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

What a fantastic addition to my kitchen! I purchased this product mainly to use as a panini press however I have also made toasted sandwiches and both are easy to make and delicious! There is no heat setting, you just plug it in and turn it on, the lights indicate when it is ready to use. There is a lock on the handle to keep the press shut while it is heating and for storage. Item comes with a recipe book but I find most panini's take between 5-8 minutes and cheese toasties just a few minutes, and both come out perfectly! You can comfortably fit 3 small panini's side by side (2 longer ones width ways) or 2 sandwiches side by side. The top plate swivels to evenly compress the contents. Item is so so easy to clean; I've had cheese melt onto the plates and once the press has cooled down, these wipe easily away from the non stick plates. A quick wipe with a damp cloth and and once completely cooled you can simply wrap the cord around the base, and I store stood upright on my kitchen top. I am not disappointed with thise purchase!

I wish it were bigger but I use it every day
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

I went through a phase of wanting melted cheese toasties so rather than buy a conventional toaster I bought this. However now I have gone off cheese toasties I find I am just making ordinary toast in this thing. It does its job. Toasting uniformity is very dependent on how uniformly the bread is sliced, but golden crispy toast is definitely possible. I decided against cooking burgers or sausages in it (as if it were one of those clamshell grills) because there is nowhere for fats to be directed.. if too much fat comes out of the meat that is cooking it will overtop the tiny ridge that marks the edge of the plates and then probably dribble everywhere I don't want to have to be cleaning it from. I wish the plate was a little broader as I can find space for three slices of bread but not four. Cleaning grease marks and crumbs is easy, I've not felt the need to get it wet with washing up liquid once.. I wipe the plates of any fats while they are still hot using paper towels. If there are crumbs I just shake them into the sink. I've got used to there being no on unit on/off switch because I have realised that the electric socket I plug the unit into has an on/off switch, and I can also unplug the unit to be sure it will not be running my electricity bill up while I am not making breakfast. Probably good discipline to unplug devices from the electricity when they not in use.

Pleased with my purchase. Like the flat heated surfaces compared to the ridged ones on some other presses. Heats up fairly quickly. A filled panini roll takes about 5 minutes to cook. Easy to clean. Stands on its edge so easy to store away.
