I'm so happy to finally have found this Panini Pan set for an affordable price and I appreciate the "old school" design with no "non-stick coating" and no counter hogging electric appliance involved. I've used it for about 3 weeks and so far it's been everything I was expecting. It makes yummy sandwiches and grilled vegies after seasoning the cast iron with oil on a low heat setting on the stove. The delivery was quick with no problems and the product was as described. I'm looking forward to using this well made cookware for many years.
