While most people digs grilled sandwich, not everyone fancy another piece of kitchen gadget. Especially not one that is as messy as the Panini Press. This is where Maconee Microwave Panini Press Sandwich Maker comes in. As the product name implies, instead of the fancy corded electronic gadget, it is sandwich maker that leverages on your microwave to result in the same grilled sandwich. Microwave Panini Press Sandwich Maker features a patented heating accelerator material that promised to make food with grill effect using nothing but a microwave oven.
With no cords and electronics, you can just throw this aluminum and silicone contraption into the dishwasher for cleaning which is a far easier way of using the ‘old ways’. You sure can’t clean an electrically-powered Panini Press in a dishwasher, can you? Not unless, you intend it to be a one-time use kitchen appliance. The best part with this power-free sandwich maker is, you still get the hallmark grill lines on your sandwiches. Convenience is not all it offers.
Apparently, with the Microwave Panini Press Sandwich Maker, you’d be able to retain flavors, quality and nutritional values of whatever that you sandwiched in between your favorite breads. How so? Because, according to Maconee, it takes shorter time to cook (3-5 minutes) and at lower temperature, therefore there will be less nutrients lost. I have to admit that does sound like a logical argument, but as if you care about nutritious value since you are using microwave. Duh.
Questionable taste aside, you will be able to cook a variety of grill foods, including burger steak, vegetables, fish, chicken and more. So, at least, if sandwich of regular ingredients does not turn out brilliant, you can try your hands on other (microwaved) gourmet.
The Microwave Panini Press Sandwich Maker comes in a single capacity and dual capacity, side-by-side model. If you are willing to experiment, you can pick up either model off Amazon for $22.99 and $27.99 for the one-at-a-time and two-at-a-time model, respectively.
