Panini grill does so much more

The DeLonghi Retro Panini Grill offers classic styling while being able to cook a variety of meals.

Looks good in any era. Zappos

I have come to really like panini grills. They suffer a strange fate, however, due simply to their name. Panini grills. I mean, paninis are nice and all, but really do we need a grill just for them? The answer, of course, is no, but the good news is they do so much more. This one, however, even looks good doing it.

Whether or not you enjoy the occasional panini is beside the point, because this DeLonghi Retro Panini Grill is handsome enough to always leave out on the kitchen counter. Capable of cooking more than pressed sandwiches, the grill can be used to cook everything from chicken to beef and even veggies or fish.

The automatically adjusting hinge accommodates foods of varying thickness, while the adjustable thermostat makes it easy to properly cook food. A grease cup is provided, and the grill channels away grease and fat, while the nonstick grill plates are easy to clean. The smooth styling and go-to convenience of this grill makes it easy for users to appreciate the variety that this machine can offer. With such versatility in one countertop appliance it might be easy to get carried away, so just don't forget that this grill makes panini, too.
