Love it! The press fit perfectly (like a glove) into a cast-iron pan I already owned in my kitchen. The size and weight of this press is exactly right. Not too heavy. I use it primarily to sear panini sandwiches and tofu. Works so well. Not difficult to clean, either. I am quite happy with this product and would recommend it within a heartbeat!
