Smile Pannini grill

Is it worth it to purchase a pannini grill? I have a George Foreman grill, doesn't it work the same or does Foreman crunch down too hard???? If Pannini is the way to go, anybody recommend a good inexpensive one?? Thanks

I have both a pannini grill and a george forman...The forman is slanted to allow grease to run off, the pannini is flat, but, I don't see why you can't use the forman, both press down on the sandwich to be grilled and both will leave grill marks..try your forman before going to the expense of a pannini grill...You can also use a cast iron skillet and wrap a brick in foil and press your sandwich if need be..
