Rachael Ray Open Skillet Twin Pack and Proctor-Silex Sandwich Maker

Product Review: Rachael Ray VS Proctor-Silex

I'm officially obsessed with my new sandwich maker. And, my new Rachael Ray frying pans. Last week, I ordered the Rachael Ray Open Skillet Twin Pack and Proctor-Silex Sandwich Maker from abc.com with the intention of reintroducing myself to my stove and finally making cooking fun again. And, that I did.

After receiving my shiny new toys, I immediately started my attempt at recreating one of my favorite dishes from the Cheesecake Factory — the Buffalo Blasts. I started by cooking up some chicken tenders in the small frying pan with just non-stick cooking spray.

Next, I shredded the chicken and mixed it with buffalo sauce for the filling of the sandwich pockets. I then cut two small whole wheat tortillas into squares and placed one tortilla topped with the buffalo chicken and a little shredded cheddar on the bottom of the pre-heated sandwich press. I placed the second tortilla square on top, closed the lid, crossed my fingers, and waited.

About 5 minutes later I found myself enjoying a perfect little buffalo chicken tortilla pocket. This little sandwich pocket is probably one of the best things I have ever made. And, even more importantly, it was one of the EASIEST. So easy that even I didn't manage to screw it up.

It probably helped that the press does the hard part for you and gives the pocket crispy sealed edges that will be great for re-heating in the toaster or microwave at work. Also, just like the pans, the press was mess-free and the non-stick surface made for a quick clean up. (Seriously, both the press and the pans took about a minute to wash. WIN.)

Oh and pans are totally cute. Like the kind of cute that makes you want to actually use them. Needless to say, both of these items are a definite YAY in my book, and I cannot wait to start experimenting with different fillings.
