THIS THING IS SO AWZM.
When you register for things on your wedding thingery sometimes you end up at the store just clicking the scanner at whatever. WELL NOT THIS ONE FOLKS. We researched and found the best tool for the job: The Cuisinart Griddler. It doesn't slice and dice, it's like a home panino maker. It's got 2 different sets of plates, one for sandwiches and one for not sandwiches (flat, which I guess could be for sandwiches, but I really like the toasty line marks it makes) Here's a couple photos. Open and closed.
and a compilation
So basically you turn this bad boy on, get it real hot, drop your sandwich up in the place, let it get melty and delicious, take sandwich out and eat. For a CV of what our machine has done, check here, here, and here. There are more if you've been following the blog closely.
Conclusion: You got a place to live with access to semi-predictable electricity? You like your sandwiches somewhat ballerier? GET A CUISINART GRIDDLER. THIS IS THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS.
