If you’ve been thinking about buying a panini maker for yourself or as a holiday gift, you might want to get on it – Oprah Winfrey named the Breville Panini Press as one of her Ultimate Favorite Things again! The last time she did this, back in 2007, not only did Williams-Sonoma sell out of them before Christmas, but other brands became a bit scarce as well. I know this because I tried to buy one! The Breville Panini Press my sister bought for me for Christmas that year actually arrived in January, once a new shipment came in.
The one Oprah picked this time around is a new-and-improved version over the one I use, with a 25 percent larger cooking surface. Williams-Sonoma has temporarily lowered their price on it to $99.95 (it was previously $119.95 when I checked just yesterday) and are promoting it big time on their homepage. Just a heads up!
When you make a purchase via the links in this post a portion of the proceeds comes back to Panini Happy to help keep the panini-making going on this blog.
