* An artistic image for your panini sandwiches
* Featured on the T.V. series Glee
* Portion of the funds go to “good deeds”
Holy Sandwich, Bat-Man, this unique panini press turns your perfect golden brown grilled cheese into a regular “sandwich of Turin,” imprinting it with the face of Jesus. The “Grilled Cheesus” certainly lives up to its billing, and it was apparently featured on an episode of Glee. Break some bread, grill some cheese. Put an iconic stamp on your sandwiches and celebrate your faith, or your appreciation for religious imagery kitsch, whichever it may be. It’s hard to say which the Grilled Cheesus even has most in mind; they do say a portion of the proceeds go to “doing good deeds around the world,” so there’s that.
Besides, even if you’re a nonbeliever this thing also helps you make a really good sandwich. The rays of holiness emanating from the halo image do a great job evenly distributing heat across the surface of the bread, so you get a really even cheese melt and no burn-lines. If you’re looking for something to do with your own portion of “loaves and fishes” this press might just help you make the ideal tuna melt. You may just decide there’s no better image for “the bread of life,” than the glorious iconography of the Grilled Cheesus.
