Should I buy a Pannini Press?

I don't know why I am so obsessed with pannini's lately! For years, I was perfectly happy grilling up a grilled cheese on the pan, but now I feel like I need a press!!
Am I crazy? Is it a complete waste of money?...just like when the coffee craze came about and I bought this ridiculous expresso cappucino maker, now it's in the basement.
Just curious on anyones thoughts! Thanks!
Yes you should. I love my Panni press. But I do not use as often as I like to. Also get the expresso machine out of the basement and enjoy . Panni and Expresso you can't go wrong.
BTW . The George Foreman grill make a nice panni.So if you have one use it Before spending a few bucks.
I'm very pleased with my Cuisinart Griddler. It has both panini grills and flat griddles; they're interchangeable. One nice thing about this model is that it opens flat, so you can use it as a flat-top grill or griddle. Which, when you consider the small stoves that many kitchens are equipped with, might not be a bad idea for a small kitchen.
Somehow, a sandwich oozing with gruyere cheese, sliced tomatoes, fresh basil, and a good sprinkling of salt and pepper, made totally crisp by the panini maker, is a thing of beauty.
Now, why do I have a chicken in the oven when I'm no longer in the mood for it?
I vote yes. You can make do with almost any kitchen appliance, but that doesn't mean it's a waste to have one.
