Nice !


have you plugged it in ?


just checking.


that's a fine find.


enjoy !


@rotuts, that's a fine suggestion and I thank you for it. I just opened it up and plugged it in. It started warming up, and judging by the smell I'd say it's never been used! Reminds me of the smell of a clothes iron (remember those?) heating up. I played around with the controls a bit, then read the instructions.




The instructions say clearly that the metal cover gets very hot, and not to touch it until it cools down! I looked at the wooden cutting board holding the panini press...and turned it off. I'll use it atop a less scorchable surface.


All the instructions as well as the cleaning tool came with it. I especially like the instruction book, which has operating instructions at the front end and, if you flip it over, recipes at the back end.






I forgot to mention in my earlier post that I also spotted and purchased these canning springs. $0.50 for the pair! I'll post more about them in the Preservation topic, when I get around to using them.
