You can even cook two different products at the same time because each side of the grill has its own independently-controlled heating element!

The specialized hinges allow the top plates to lay flat against the food rather than at an angle. This ensures complete contact and uniform cooking.

Heavy-Duty Construction

A heavy-duty, stainless steel construction ensures that the unit is built to withstand a rough and tough kitchen environment.

Removable Grease Tray

The edge of the grill plate is angled downward to collect grease and direct it into the removable grease tray. When it's time to clean up, the tray can be removed and emptied.

How to Season a Panini Grill

Learn how to season your Panini grill for consistent, delicious results with every sandwich!

Keeping your Panini grill seasoned is an important step in maintaining the cast iron plates. Once you have received your Panini grill, it’s important to take the proper steps in caring for it before your first use. In order to protect the plates of your new grill during transportation, a layer of food-safe oil was coated on the surface prior to shipment. This oil is harmless, but must be removed before you begin to use.To remove, preheat the grill to 350 degrees f or until the oil liquifies. Next, carefully wipe away the melted oil with a clean, soft cloth and clean the surfaces with hot water and a mild dish detergent. Once the oil is removed and you have cleaned the surface, you are ready to season. Seasoning is important for any cast iron item used in the kitchen. It will keep your Panini grill from rusting and ensure a nice stick resistant surface. To season, preheat the grill to 400 degrees F. Once the preheat light turns off, place a small amount of oil in center of the grill. Using a soft dry cloth, spread the oil around covering the top and bottom of the grill. Let heat for 15min or until all oil has been burnished. Your grill may need to be reseasoned periodically due to heavy cleaning. Just follow those simple steps to ensure your grill stays rust free and stick resistant. Thanks for watching, and if you have any questions, please click on our live chat button.

    1 out of 1 found this review helpful

    This panini grill worked great for 8 months then one side starting giving me problems. It either quickly burns the bread or hardly cooks it at all. It's like the middle range of temperatures don't work anymore. I now realize why they only give a six month warranty.

    Thank you for the feedback on this panini grill. We really do apologize for any trouble that it may have caused you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you right away.

    This is a nice looking Panini Grill. IT worked great for about a year then the heat element stopped working right and it burnt the bread on one side. it was of course right after the warranty expired. probably would not buy again.

    from Andy B's of Tulsa Posted on

    so far we have been very pleased with this and so have our customers, easy to use and clean, very happy we chose the double over the single

    from DACEMAN LLC Posted on

    This Panini grill is great! It is easy to clean and makes great paninis but is also big enough to make quesadillas which is a big plus!

    from brewed awakenings Posted on

    This works pretty darn good for our restaurant. We use it daily basis to go ahead and make all of our paninis in the restaurant

    from The Neighbors Bar and Grille Posted on

    Absolutely love this. Easy to use and has helped us to increase business. Cooks well and still works wonderfully. We call it the magic panini machine.

    from Black & Cold Creamery Posted on

    Very good product. We had trouble getting the grill seasoned even though we followed the directions. Once we got it seasoned then it has worked well.

    from Kelson Inc Posted on

    I would rate this press 4 out of 5, but after a year, one side of the grill gets so hot that i burn the bread. I tried contacting Avantco but all you can do is send an email and their warranty is only six months. It would be practical to use another brand that believes in its products enough to offer longer warranties.

    Posted on

    Thank you for the review! We're sorry this is not working well for you right now. We suggest looking in the Looking for Replacements section on the product page as you may need to replace the element or the thermostat.

    WebstaurantStore Customer Solutions

    Bought as a replacement for our very old pres. The Avantco P84 Sandwich press so far as been a great replacement. Nice even heating provides great looking grill marks to sandwiches. Very nice that the top grills stay in place. Outside stainless steel gets dirty quickly, must stay on top of it. We do wish the warranty was longer.

    Avantco P84 Sandwich Grill

    LIke many others here, it went bad after 8 months, 2 months out of warranty. Manufacturer didn't care in spite of similar reviews. They should be making good on these issues, since the problems appear to be similar. I will NEVER EVER buy another product from this manufacturer, unless they suddenly refund or fix my grill. Very disappointing.

    from Victor W Pulizzano KAKJ 2 LLC Posted on

    Thank you for the review, Victor. We're very sorry that you've had a negative experience with this sandwich grill. To get your grill working again, have a service technician install this Avantco P8TOPELM Replacement Top Heating Element in your unit.

    Several parts broken and loose always has to be tighten , specially top press handle after 3 months , other then its OK to have it

    from Public Cafe Posted on

    Thank you for the feedback, Hari. We are sorry that some of the parts broke for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you shortly.

    Bought a second set for the restaurant. Great price for the grills. Takes a few grilling times to get it adjusted but works great for quick service paninis

    Posted on

    We use these grills for paninis at our restaurant and cafe. They take a little breaking in when first purchased but grilled the sandwiches well.

    Posted on

    Originally purchased one over 7 years ago. Worked great for over 6 years of heavy use. Purchased a second one last year. Has been replaced twice for random parts/controls being loose/broken. Received last replacement in February. Today one of the handles is completely loose with inner wiring showing. After contacting the company I was told that it was out of warranty since the original purchase was made back in August. QUALITY IS FAR FROM WHAT IT USED TO BE! DO NOT BUY!

    from GUSTO CAFE, LLC Posted on

    This is an amazing buy. I currently replaced my Waring (still working) which was much heavier and bulkier with this grill. This was a lot cheaper and a space saver.

    from Kach LLC Posted on

    Panini grill worked ok. Takes a few minutes to heat up. Never used commercial one before so I guess that is expected. While still under warranty the plug broke so I contacted Webstaurant customer service. They would only send a new plug part and not replace unit. Too much trouble to find a technician to fix and figured would cost almost as much as buying a new one so just bought a second one since i needed to be able to use it immediately.

    Posted on

    First unit lasted 8 months. Warranty only 6 months so I'm out of luck. Second unit lasted a month and a half with the same exact problem. They will gladly send you a replacement part that you have to install yourself. If it's under warranty, replace the unit, not expect you to fix their defects. Bad enough I had to eat the cost for a new unit. Just makes me a little bitter when the same thing happened to both units. Makes me wonder if this is a known issue or these are expected to fail knowing they make it up in parts and/or new units.

    from Great Harvest Bread Co. Posted on

    We appreciate your review, Kari. We are truly sorry for the issues you’ve had with this sandwich grill. As promised in your correspondence with a Customer Solutions Representative, we will be sending you a replacement element to get this unit working properly again. Please feel free to contact us should you have any other issues.

    Never had a problem with this panini sandwich grill, and we have had it for over a year. Easy to clean, and cooks very evenly.

    from Plan 9 Alehouse Posted on

    We've had this grill for a year now and it still work like brand new. It cooks very evenly and is extremely easy to clean.

    from Seneca Harbor Station Posted on

    Super groovy (pun intended), this grill does a great job cooking quickly and evenly. My only qualm is that it's difficult to clean. The surface is a little rough and loves to hold onto cheese and grease. Were I to order again, I would select the smooth bottom version for this reason.

    The avantco p84 panini sandwich grill is a must have! I love that you are able to have two seperate temp setting. Cleans easily and made to last

    from Funky fresh food truck Posted on

    Without a full kitchen or a hood, it's been tricky finding food we can serve at our coffee shop to make it more versatile. This grill is great for toasting and paninis. Our shop isn't wired well and we have trouble running both sides at the same time without tripping a breaker.

    from Charm City Tesfa, LLC Posted on

    I bought the double Panini grill as we offer two different types of hot sandwiches to it's great to be able to independently control the temps for each half of the press. The sandwiches turn out great.

    Posted on

    Good Grill, toast paninis perfect and cooks very fast. i think it will be just fine in my tavern and make a lot of people have happy sandwiches.

    from 7th St Station Posted on

    We have used the single press version of this for over a year and then moved to the double. It uses 2 outlets but that isn't an issue in our kitchen. This unit is quick, simple and has worked great for us for sandwiches. etc...

    from EVOKE Posted on

    We love this new grill! Each side has it's own plug so we can plug in only what is needed, especially important in the mornings with limited outlets and multiple equipment being used to prep for the day. Easy set up, within about 30 min of opening the package we were already making sandwiches with the press and they turned out wonderful. Highly recommend this for an affordable but functional press for a small café. We do about 15-20 sandwiches during lunch and having this press will make our product more appealing to the customer as well as easier for our staff to prepare.

    from Abundant Grounds Cafe Posted on

    We are so happy with this grill. It takes no time at all to grill a sandwich. We also grill chicken for salads and quesadillas.

    from Heaven in A Cup Posted on

    This thing gets HOT!! We are a very busy 24 hour diner and this thing never stops. We make paninnis all day and after 8 months of operation there have been absolutely no hiccups in this machine.

    from BelAIre Diner Posted on

    This panini grill is so easy to use. You can change the temperture according to your needs. The only thing I don't like is the cleaning. Sometimes, it is difficult for our staff to clean it, but I think this is common on all other panini grills.

    Posted on

    To make cleaning easier, we recommend that you use a degreaser like the 32 oz. Noble Chemical Formula D Ready to Use Decarbonizer and Degreaser (147FORMULAD).

    We needed a small panini press this fit the bill . It does take two outlets , more then likely two circuts.. pros- cost ease of use. cons does not have option of smooth plates

    Posted on

    This panini grill is awesome, only bad thing about it that it is a double cover and as per LA county Health Dept. it has to be under the Hood and can not be a stand alone! Otherwise its great

    Posted on

    This is a very large panini press unit that is good for making a variety of grilled sandwiches fast. It has a dual lid feature that is perfect for continuous toasting of sandwiches.

    Posted on

    After a lot of shopping, we decided to go with this panini grill for our cafe. We use it heavily and it has held up just fine. We cook our sandwiches at 160 degrees for about 3 minutes...it does take time to cook and melt the cheese. This is the temp that works for us to melt but not burn the bread.

    from Happy Day Cafe Posted on

    This is a great unit for a high volume sandwich stop! Looks pretty easy to clean, and that cast iron is sure to leave a great grill mark on any bread!!

    Posted on

    Talk about saving time! This double featured panini grill allows you to crank out a lot of sandwiches quickly! Worked wonders at a banquet event! High quality grill!!

    i had to do 75 paninis at work and this sandwich grill saved me a lot of time compared to doing it on the grill

    Posted on

    This Grill has been excellent - it's compact enough yet allows for 2 orders going at once. It heats up quite quickly and has been a solid machine - no problems!

    from GO JAVA, LLC Posted on

    This is a fantastic product. It not only heats up quickly, but it also finishes the paninis in a timely manner. would recommend it to others.
