MostlyWater,
I purchased an Emeril machine long time ago in clearance at BB and Beyond for $20. It has removable sandwich inserts and also waffle and pizzelles inserts.
It is OK, my kids use it at least once a week.

I just bought my Cuisinart Griddler last week. I printed up 20% coupons to Bed Bath & Beyond and Linens and Things and decided one of those stores will have it in stock. I got it at my first stop... L & T.... with the coupon I spent $106.

PROS: I am very happy with the fact that I can do Panini's, grill meats (like the Foreman grill), it has the two grates and flat griddle plates that are easily removed for cleaning. You can either close it to cook or leave it wide open for two flat surfaces.

CONS: It wasnt as big as I imagined it to be but it works for my boyfriend and I. I dont like how the exterior gets so hot. For example.. when using as a Panini press you have to use a potholder to make sure the top presses down evenly. If you just pull the handle down it wont create equal pressure and will smoosh/cook the food closest to the hinge more causing uneven cooking. So I have to use a potholder to level out the top as I pull down to ensure even pressure/cooking. Once I have it evenly positioned I can let go.

I guess Im happy with it. Considering its versatility and easy cleanup its OK. I mostly like it because my boyfriend has fun with it... I can get hm to cook!!! He can even CLEAN it!! LOL!!! Plus its easy to make healthier, quickie foods... less fattening.. chick breast, etc.
