    I just made my first panini in the GFG and it was excellent! Black Forest ham, baby swiss and champagne mustard on fresh sourdough I'm in trouble!

    Critical, when I clean mine, I hang it over my sink (like it's the drip pan), plug it in to loosen the caked on food, unplug it when it's hot and then wash it with warm, soapy water. I'm careful not to get the cord wet. Sometimes I use a soft bristled cleaning brush to get the tough spots and I've never had an issue with the teflon coming off. The one I have now is 4 years old and still looks brand new.

    I usually put some wet paper towels in it right after I finish cooking and then close and unplug it. When I go back a little while later, a lot of the stuff that may have stuck to the grill wipes right off. The only time it was really a pain was all the grease from a burger. I washed it with hot soapy water and would think it was clean and then I'd see more grease. UGH! I DO wish I had one with the removable plates, especially in those kinds of situations but, all in all, it's not too hard to clean.

    It's so nice to use in the summer because it generates so little heat. My kitchen is the hottest room in the house, so I avoid the stove and oven until late at night. I roasted a chicken last night that wasn't finished until after 10!

    I've owned two Foreman grills, and both started peeling within a year or so. I only used non-stick Teflon type spatulas on it, too. It's such a healthy way to cook. I'd love to own one again, but am leary because of the non-stick plates peeling.

    I've read that clay bakers absorb flavors so much that it's recommended you have one for baking bread and one for cooking meats and other dishes. That sounds reasonable. Can't wait till I can get another, larger one!
    I just got a still in the box, unused souffle clayware... about 8" round with high sides for $1 at a yard sale. I may not be making a lot of souffles, but I'm sure I'll find a use for it. I couldn't pass it up after our conversation here. Any suggestions? I got a bamboo steamer (unused, unopened) at another sale, again for a dollar. I know I'll use that.
    Count your blessings!

    Holy Cow, those are great bargains! I never seem to get that lucky I live in an area where there are a lot of antique dealers and shops, so they hit the yard sales pretty early, maybe that's why getting there at 8 a.m. is too late!

    They do that here, too, but they're not looking for cookware.

    Re: Kitchen Gadgets and Gizmos

    Our office has become a fun place to be recently because of the addition of some kitchen gadgets! One of my co-workers brought his bread machine to work because he hadn't been using it since he bought it and I brought my cappuccino machine to work, figuring it would get more use here than at home. It's wonderful having the smell of freshly-baked bread in the air in the morning and having a slice of bread and cup of cappuccino with my co-workers around lunchtime, when the bread is ready.

    Each of us is chipping in by buying bread mixes to bring to the office.

    If I end up getting a new job, I hope my new office will be just as receptive to having a bread maker. I have my own bread machine at home and would be glad to bring it to the office.
