No grilled cheese can reach perfection without being cooked in these timeless pieces of equipment. It's what separates great from good.

6. When it comes time to cook, go ahead and take that butter you chose and spread it on the outsides of your bread.

7. Now, place that bread on the skillet and add your cheese along with your favorite fixin's!

Once your crust attains that perfect golden-brown color and your cheese is oozing oh-so-deliciously down the sides, you know you've done a good job.

8. Since you're practically ravenous at this point, speed up the process by covering the pan for a minute or two.

This traps the heat to sure you melt your cheese without potentially over-crispifying your bread!

10. Pair that perfect grilled cheese with tomato soup for added perfection.
