The Cuisinart(MD) Griddler takes multi-functionality to a new level. Not just for paninis, it can handle pancakes and sausages, grilled cheese, steaks or hamburgers and much more. A floating cover and one set of non-stick reversible plates turn the Griddler into a contact grill, a panini press, a full grill, a full griddle or half grill / half griddle. Dual temperature controls ensure everything is perfectly cooked. Limited 3-year warranty.
