I was very excited to get this press as an upgrade from another brand (with a smaller surface). I loved it for the first few months. It heated quickly (those who find it doesn t get hot/melt things must have a faulty unit), made sandwiches (and a few other things) to perfection, and aside from being slightly more difficult to clean than my previous one it was great.
Unfortunately, only a few months in the clip that holds the unit closed fell off. And the non-stick surface? Nice, but it didn t last long. It s already wearing off in the grooves and I ve never used metal or any other damaging utensil on it.
I ve had this unit for just over a year and am already looking at having to replace it.
I d recommend it in some aspects (nice sized surface, heats well, cooks quickly), but not in others. If you re looking for a press/grill that will only get minor use, then this may be the unit for you. If you want a work horse, a press that you use once a week or more, you might want to check around.
