The toaster oven just wasn't getting much action, and it takes up a good sized chunk of real estate, so we needed a better plan.
Enter the Breville Panini Duo!
It's much smaller and is easier to store out of sight.
We can make two sandwiches at one time and it cleans up easily. No sprays, butter or oil is needed due to the non-stick design.
The bottom plate is flat, allowing us to make pancakes, open faced sandwiches, melts, eggs, etc.
The top portion has the grill part that makes the cool marks when it smooshs the bread down to form a panini.
You don't want your bread smooshed? No problem. In addition to the floating upper plate, you can lock it into different positions. This makes it perfect for toast and reheating leftover pizza slices.
Oh Panini! Where have you been all my life?
Long Live the Smitten Queen
