Now that the rush of Christmas shopping is over, its time to start shopping for Valentines while all the sales are on! On our last trip to Paris, my husband really enjoyed the panini sandwiches he tried. I started thinking that a panini maker might be a nice V-day present---that way he can easily make dinner and lunch for our son!
Does anyone have experience with any particular brand of electronic panini maker that they would recommend or avoid like the plague?
Second question, could we achieve the same panini effect with a cast iron skillet and something heavy on top of the sandwich?
Thanks and happy holidays!
