The Avantco Panini Press is an inexpensive way to get into the panini business. Let me show you how to make a really simple panini sandwich that will really please your customers.

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

    I must admit, at first this grill work as describe, however two month into operation I had to get rid of it. The surface was peeling with metal flakes. This was the main equipment for my restaurant and we use it all day. Thankfully Webstaurantstore was very responsive and refunded my purchase. I used the credits to purchase a cast iron grill. I would recommend this product for very light use not commercial use.

    We bought this press as our main sandwich press in a restaurant that serves melts as a menu category. We like it -- its a great value for the price and toasts the bread nicely. I like that the tops are heavy enough to stay down when you press them.

    from Colony Cafe Posted on

    Great deal, if you prefer to save some money. Basically using this one for wraps and panini. Easy to use and clean. Definitely worth buying.

    Panini Grill

    I bought this product in October but wasn't able to used it till April due to the late completion of my restaurant. I've only used it for about three months and then all the back screws that keeps the top grill open broke off. Poorly designed and not meant for commercial use.

    This panini press is a great reliable product that is comparable to the high end brands at a lower cost. The red color looks nice in the kitchen as well

    from the green street restaurant and kitchen inc Posted on

    It's been over a year now and this press has made several thousand sandwiches and is still going strong. Cleaning the grooves is not easy, but we scrub it with a wire brush it every night and the carbon build-up never gets too bad.
