Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Handle cover melted when only using on the stove

Submitted by Kitchenaid buyer - 6/26/2016

Just bought this and the small handle cover seems to have melted and cracked on the first use! We did not place the item in the oven or dishwasher because the instructions said to avoid that. Should we also take them off on the stove top??? Perhaps this one is just faulty? Is there a way to get a replacement. It is the first time we used the pan.

My "go to" addition.

Submitted by Nurse Jeanne - 2/15/2016

I have used my KitchenAidŽ Grill and Panini Press to make everything from delicious cheese burgers, chicken breasts, paninis and stuffed french toast. Each time I use it I'm impressed on how evenly it cooks the food & if I put hot water in it immediately after use it is very easy to clean. It is a GREAT cook addition.

I would buy this grill!

Submitted by the explorer - 2/10/2016

I have use this grill when its cold outside, but you are in the mood for a crunchy grilled chicken. It really makes a difference. (Compared with a simple frying pan or cast iron skillet)

Love this pan!

Submitted by Momma C - 2/4/2016

I received my panini press and was so excited. My first impression was how beautiful the Empire Red panini press looked. That may seem funny too some but looks really do matter when it comes to cookware. The first items I made were sun dried tomato and basil pesto panini with grilled chicken. They turned out wonderful. The grill marks were perfect. I made them without adding anything to the pan to keep them from sticking and they came out perfect. No sticking at all. I decided to put it to a real test for my next sandwich. On my old cast iron grill pan everything stuck but nothing was worse than when I used my homemade bread. It never turned out whether I used the griddle or grill pan side. Well this pan changed it all. My husband wants grilled cheese to go with his bowl of soup so I used this pan with the press also. The sandwich came out amazing also. It was pressed nicely and never stuck; not even a little bit. Some cheese came out but it wiped right up.

Press Perfect

Submitted by RMG619 - 2/4/2016

First of all, this is a beautiful piece of cookware. I have used it for both sandwiches and burgers. The handle covers are awesome, and add to the ease of use. I've found it easy to clean off messes like melted cheese and the carmelization from making burgers by using my dishwashing brush in a gentle sweeping motion along the grooves. Preheating the press is easy if you fit it in the grooves. I got perfect lines every time. After washing and drying, I season with grapeseed oil and a pastry brush; wiping the excess with a clean towel.

Achieve healthy meals with this pan!

Submitted by Linda Wooten - 2/1/2016

Love the rich color of the Empire Red Panini Grill and Press! Especially love the silicone pan handle mitts-what a plus! So far, I've made delicious three cheese grilled cheese sandwiches(twice) that my husband loved! I've grilled bacon to a healthy crisp-it didn't soak in bacon grease, making this a healthier meal. I've also grilled boneless chicken strips and portobello mushrooms for delicious, seared salad toppers! The color goes great with my KitchenAid Mixer. I love KitchenAid products! Pan cleans great!

Great Grill and Panini Pan

Submitted by Mike - 1/25/2016

I got this pan and right out of the box it looks great. I wanted a stove top press instead of an electric press so I could also take it camping. Let me say I mainly cook on cast iron pans or outside on the bbq/smoker. The only thing better than cast iron is porcelain/enamel coated cast iron. The grill marks are awesome and perfect and really make the sandwich look great. I have pressed down on the lid with a lot of force and the sandwiches did not stick. I've used butter on the bread and other times sprayed the pan and lid with olive oil spray no sticking and great grill marks. This pan cleans up easy. I use a small piece of non-slip drawer liner between the pan and lid when I store it. Also cooked a couple of pork chops, the grill marks look so good I think it makes them taste even better. The silicon handle covers are really great and you do not feel the hot pan, I'd like to have something like that for all my cast iron pans. One thing to remember is the bottom(pan) is on the burner so it will cook hotter than the top. My 2 cents: I turn the pan off after it reaches the temp I want and the cast iron holds heat long enough to cook sandwiches, if cooking more than 2 minutes I turn it over so it all cooks even. Great pan, I plan on grilling steak, chicken and fish too, not to mention several more pressed sandwiches.

The sandwich came out amazing just as the first ones on naan. It was pressed nicely and never stuck; not even a little bit. Some cheese came out but it wiped right up. I'm really impressed with this pan. I'm so glad I have it and will use it often. I'm thinking about grilling chicken in it next instead of outside on the grill. It's only 28 degrees here today. Oh and the silicon handle covers worked really well. You can put them in and touch the pan handles with no trouble. It's an all around great buy. It would make a really nice present for someone that loves to cook. I have a few picture to post so I hope they look as good and the real thing did. I only had the camera on my phone.
