SALE ALERT: Oprah’s Favorite Panini Press

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. 🙂

    Kathy, I’ve had this on my wish-list for ages…dreaming of making all your paninis…I saw this was one of Oprah’s favs and thought “well, Paul better get it for me stat or there goes another year without it.” He just ordered it through your link. So it won’t be a surprise, but who cares! Thanks for the heads-up on the sale price.
