As my family watches in rapt attention I'll place it on the grill side on my shinning Cusinart and put the top piece of bread in place. I'll gently drop down the top of the griller on my sandwich and as the bread toasts give it a professional squeeeeeeeeze!
My wife and kids will cheer and I'll perform sandwich making well into the night.
Can't do that with a brick and two skillets practical as they may be.
Only another appliance freak can understand the obsession.

My, my, you certainly have a rich and rewarding fantasy life!

The literal translation of pannini means "little breads." Pannini is plural, one pannino two pannini. Whatever you call them, they're terrific.
