I’m not sure there is a really a difference between a panini and a toasted sandwich. What I do know is when you have a hankering for a grilled cheese with some geek flare, this Star Wars Imperial panini press is the ticket. You can make two toasty (and evil) sandwiches at a time.
One side embellishes your bread with Darth Vader’s helmet, while the other one makes an impression of a stormtrooper’s helmet. The product description says that you can make waffles or brownies with this thing too. I’ve never heard of making brownies on this sort of contraption.
You can cook eggs in it too. Some scrambled eggs with Lord Vader on them sound good right about now. The Star Wars Imperial panini press is available at ThinkGeek for $39.99.
