Does a GF get hot enough? The small one I have doesn't seem like it'd work that great.

I don't know about the small one, but I know the larger models work great. I think the small one is supposed to get hot enough to cook a chicken breast, but whether it actually does or not is not something I know. If it does get that hot, then it is certainly hot enough to make a panini.

a cheap panini maker

A cheap panini maker is one of the best appliances i think have have bought. I use it at least a couple of times a week. I have used in the past the george foreman type grill and cast iron pans. To me there is nothing that produces results like a panini maker. Here is the unit i got:
Amazon.com: Breadman TR456 Panini Maker: Home & Garden

If you look at the reviews you can tell that people really like it. Its large, has a lot of heft to the lid so it produces nice results. You can get this unit for under $40 shipped. I absolutly love it. I would have like to have some of the features on the cuisinart gridler like removable plates so you can put them in the dishwasher but for over $100...i don't think so.


If you can't take the heat, then get out of the kitchen!!!
