The Best Panini Press Review:

The Cuisinart GR-4N 5-in-1 Griddler, Silver, with Black Dials  is small in size, but large in features. This panini press offers 5 in 1 features. It’s a contact grill, panini press, full grill, full griddle and half grill/half griddle. 

When we tested this panini press we where nothing but impressed. The Cuisinart 5 in 1 griddler has everything you could want from a panini press. A floating hinge for cooking sandwiches of all sizes, an adjustable thermostat to cook your panini to perfection and removable plates for easy cleaning. When we cooked a panini on this panini press it was simple and easy to cook. The panini was beautifully cooked and the press warmed up to temperature fast and efficiently.
