"Wonderfully easy! Great inspiration starter to better utilized Panini maker."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 8, 2008

"  The best bread for peanut butter and banana sandwiches (my all-time favorite!) is fresh white loaf bread. If, however, you want to make it gourmet and/or grill it, I'd go with a good multi-grain wheat sourdough. That will better stand up to heat and press (if you use one).

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 3, 2008

"My husband loves peanut butter & banana sandwiches which, now that I'm thinking about it, would probably be pretty tasty warm.  Is there a particular bread that you use or just any loaf bread?  I saw Paula Deen make a sandwich on her show once that was the fried PB & Nanner type but then she put cinnamon sugar on the outside of it.  As if the sandwich fried in a pan of butter weren't enough, let's add sugar.  May my sweet tooth never been that needy.
