Chef Buddy Panini Press – A Low Cost Kitchen Superstar

Hey! I’m back! And still in search of that perfect toasted sandwich maker. Well, I am not sure that there is a “perfect” anything, except possibly in heaven and I am not ready to find out if that’s true any time soon.

However, it has to be said that for less than 20 bucks, the Chef Buddy Panini Press is a truly excellent addition to our kitchen and I don’t think anyone is going to be sorry if they order one. Is it the best Panini press in the world? No. But… dang they make cheap and easy panini sandwiches taste great!

Katie Bookser Does Panini

Katie is one of YouTube’s lesser-known culinary stars but I have to admit, she sure does know a good panini filling when she sees one. I’d hesitate to call these “recipes” as they’re more a matter of assembly than cookery but… you really ought to check them out, they’ll leave your mouth watering and your whole family screaming for paninis.

Great, aren’t they? I can’t get enough of the Turkey Apple Cheddar. Yum. Yum. Yum.

Chef Buddy Grills Them To Perfection

It’s a panini grill and that has a sort of pass/fail on the ability to make a toasted sandwich. The Chef Buddy does this very well indeed. In fact, my only mild quibble with it is that it takes a little longer to warm up than my other, more expensive, panini grill. But only a little… and it’s much cheaper.

I also like the way the Chef Buddy looks. It harkens back to the tackiness of 1980s kitchens and I am quite partial to kitsch. So, not only do I recommend that you check out the Chef Buddy Panini Press on Amazon, I recommend that you buy it too before the price goes up.

And today is your lucky day because we are giving away one of these affordable panini grills! Who doesn’t want a free panini grill?

  1. I would really love a Panani press as I have never had one before and it looks like a great way to make delicious sandwiches!

  2. This looks so inviting to use. I didn’t know it could be for sandwiches. This would be a plus in my small kitchen. With two adult kids living this would make life easier!! WOW I love red.
