Recommendations for best Panini press/grill sandwich maker

Help - I want to buy a panini maker to grill my own delicious sandwiches. Too many choices when I did a search on Google. I'll pay up to about $100 (doesn't have to be cafe quality) but best features and results are my priority.

All Chowhound recommendations are appreciated.

  1. The Krups FDE3 is an incredibly well designed panini press. It should be available for about $100. We use ours more often than we would have anticipated.

    1. I have a krups also . Great machine.

      1. We use our George Foreman. We were a bit late on this particular bandwagon but eventually got one as a Christmas gift a couple of years ago and to be honest, it's been a lifesaver on many occasions.

        1. Which is the cheapest & best brand of Panini press/grill sandwich maker
          ?

          1. A cast iron skillet or other heavy pan and a brick.

              Ahh! - you beat me to my own smart-ass (and very worthy) answer.

              Save your cash and buy yourself something nicer.
