Ever since my hot sandwich maker broke down a year ago, I’ve been eyeing Cuisinart’s Gourmet Griddler. I really liked the multi-functionality — panini press, grill, griddle — but I wished it had interchangeable waffle plates as I really didn’t want to buy a separate waffle maker. Well, the innovation gurus at Cuisinart must have read my mind. I am in LOVE with this appliance, and have used it several times this past week — from grilled cheese sandwiches to waffles, beef skewers to quesadillas — the Gourmet Griddler is easy to use and clean up. The non-stick plates mean less oil is needed. I have to admit that the grill marks on the sandwiches make them extra delicious!
