Salton Santa Fe Quesadilla Maker A quesadilla maker? Really? Is it that hard to make a quesadilla? Is it that time-consuming?

One-purpose items are generally prohibited in my kitchen. (My salad-spinner is the one exception that leaps to mind.) And if a product is going to do only one thing, it needs to do it well.

I like my quesadillas filled to the tortilla brim. In addition to cheese, I usually include beans, veggies, and meat. So my quesadillas are a full meal when I make them, not just a snack. That's my main issue with this quesadilla maker. It limits the amount of filling you can use. You can't fit many items in the tortilla and still manage to shut the lid. And if you manually hold it down, the toppings will spill out over the sides of the unit and onto your countertop. You would have to prefer very thin quesadillas for this machine to work for you.

Also, it doesn't save you a whole lot of time. It would be quicker to just use a skillet on the stovetop. Although the quesadilla maker cooks the quesadillas in minutes, the machine takes a whole five minutes to heat up. So you're not saving a whole lot of time.

There is one feature that I appreciate -- I like how this quesadilla maker seals the filling inside the tortilla. That way you lose none of the yummy filling. And this would be a very cool feature if you were cooking quesadillas for kids. Much less messy I would think.
