Rated 5 out of 5 by Angelbbm2 Is there a word better than EXCELLENT!? EXCELLENT +++
I ordered this Panini Pan has by far and away been the Best Extra addition to my Calphalon Set! I liked Panini's but didn't a lot of opportunity to eat them as we live in the country and our local towns don't have a restaurant that serves them, on the rare occasion that we go out to eat. So when I saw it on line and for a Great price I ordered it. I began experimenting but really had more opportunities when my mom had surgery and had to stay with my husband and I during her recovery. I spoiled her by making her breakfast Panini's and it encouraged her to eat because they smell SO GOOD! She has gone back home now, 2 hours away, but I tease her that I am cooking Panini's, is she sure she doesn't want to come back." LOL!! Sheloved what I told her about the Calphalon Panini Pan and the Press. I showed her how easy it is to clean up. She was definitely impressed! I simply love this pan and I highly recommend if you want to have a sandwich with a twist, try a Panini at home in a Calphalon Panini Pan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mark1956825 great deal
I bought this in one of the last factory outlet stores. Now they are all closed up. I do not use it as a Panini pan. I only use it for cooking Bacon. Works so good as it keeps the bacon on the ridges and the heavy top keeps the slices flat. Bacon comes out soooo much better. It actually cooks quicker with the lid !!!!!!!!!
I have been a very loyal Calphalon customer over the years. My kitchen is packed with just about everything Calphalon makes. Please keep the standards high.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tawanna Bought as a gift
I bought this pan as a gift for my nephew and his fiancé. I started to test it out first but didn't. They love it. I had it in my mind that it was a 11" square but it's 11" wide but about 6" long. The handle is attached on the 11" side. Wish I would have experimented a bit first! lol - probably get me one now.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AZMark Good but not great, top is actually flat!
Perfect size for a single person. Bought it so I could use it for more than just paninis - already have a countertop press for that. Was under the impression that the top aka the press also had ridges. It's actually flat. Kind of defeats the purpose if you have to flip your food to get the grill marks.

Rated 5 out of 5 Love this pan!
I was considering a circular grill pan before I bought this pan. The rectangular shape works well on the "bridge" element on our glass cook top. So far I have cooked boneless chicken breasts and pork chops in this pan... both came out with great grill marks and the clean-up was easy. Excellent purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MamaBinx Best grill pan ever!
I love this pan, keep it on my cooktop, use it everyday, very resourceful, doesn't require cooking spray, my food stays low fat and tastes great, especially love the way it browns my skinless chicken. MORE THAN JUST A PANINI PAN! MY EVERYDAY PAN.
