Now that idea has made me hungry. Paninis are great – designed to be grilled and warmed, ideally with cheese inside that goes all gooey and melts over everything else (tuna, in my case). But unless you head for a famous coffee chain, making your own paninis isn’t as easy as it looks.
Before now, it has meant toasting the outsides of the panini halves under the grill, before flipping them over, adding toppings, toasting those, and then squishing the whole lot together in one lump. Not quite the same as the effect you get if you have a panini press.
Who needs one of those though?
Well, you might change your mind when you see this smart 3-in-1 panini, grill, and griddle from Russell Hobbs.
How to use your Russell Hobbs 3-in-1 panini maker and griddle
You can use this in several ways. Open it the whole way and you can use the two non-stick plates to grill bacon, sausages, mushrooms… whatever you want. The clever hinge also allows you to use it as a panini press. Just slice the panini, add your toppings, put the top on, and lower the lid with the hinge positioned to allow for the thicker panini. You can use this press for toasted sandwiches too if you like – it’s just as easy to do, and it will always adjust to consider the height of whatever you are cooking. It also cooks through evenly and toasts both sides, so it is ready to eat and enjoy.
Easy to clean with a built-in drip tray
Easy to clean… aren’t those the best three words in the dictionary? They are for keen cooks anyway – I know I hate cleaning stuff like this. Fortunately, this griddle and grill is easy to clean, thanks to those non-stick plates. There is a built-in drip tray to take away any excess fat from anything you cook too. You can do all kinds of items on this and you probably will – steak, sausages, chicken, fish… try them all.
