I purchased the Bella Cucina 3 in 1 Sandwich Maker because of the versatility it offers. I like the color it came in but I actually enjoy how well it actually functions as well. It has 3 interchangeable face plates that make it seem like I have 3 separate functioning appliances instead of one. There are some limitations though. The waffle plate heats and cooks unevenly and seems to take too long to cook as well. The other two plates seem to function normally. It is very easy to clean and pretty much requires only a quick thorough wipe down. You should use pan spray so that nothing sticks or, if it does it will be effortless to remove. Generic pan spray seems to leave residue behind. There are many different ways to use this one appliance. From home made stuffed sandwiches to Egg omelet pockets. It doesn't take up a whole lot of space and it is pretty safe and easy to handle because it has cool tabs that help prevent burning. I wouldn't let a kid use it without supervision though, just in case. Overall, it is really nice to have around and comes in handy for quick dinners.
