A warm, toasted panini is always an upgrade from your typical sandwich. It's why having your own panini press in your kitchen seems like a great idea. But in reality? The kitchen appliance is heavy and takes up a lot of space, whether on your counter or stored in a cabinet. It also isn't the easiest to clean. Rather than splurging on this contraption you can use your indoor electric grill, or even easier a skillet on the stovetop!
