Pros:makes cooking pizzas so easy anyone can do it
Cons:pan that it cooks on begins to lose its nonstick coating
The Bottom Line: We will always have this appliance in our household.
When my boyfriend and I lived at his parents house his father purchased one of these machines for his mother. We used it all the time and LOVED it. When we bought our first home one of the appliances we immedately purchased was one of these. It does take up a bit of room when you use and must be stored away but it still worth it. It is so easy to use that anybody would understand how it works without even reading the instructions. You get to choose how much you want the top and the bottom cooked so you are in complete control of your finished pizza. IT works well with frozen and fresh pizza. HOwever, another problem that you have is getting the finished pizza off of the pan. The top of the machine is very hot and you need to manuever the pizza off carefully so as not to burn yourself. Sometimes the pizza sticks to the pan because of the melted cheese and you then must move the pan to a different location and scrape off the pizza which then causes the nonstick to unstick and come off. All in all it's a great product and we're glad to have it and will purchase another one when this one wears out.
