Avantco Panini Press

Avantco Panini Press

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. First, I’m going to spread one side of my bread with mayonnaise and one side with raspberry jam. I’m going to build my sandwich with some cheddar cheese, turkey and arugula. Here, I’m going to use Vegalene Cooking Spray because it keeps the sandwiches from sticking. Now, I’m simply going to place the sandwiches on the panini press and the heavy cast iron plates mean that I won’t have to hold the handle down. It’ll press the sandwiches and I’ll just leave them on there for a few minutes. Just be careful taking your sandwiches off the panini press. As you can see for a very low cost, Avantco Panini Presses produce beautiful sandwiches. If you’re interested in any of the sandwich making items in this video, check out the links below.

How to Season a Panini Grill

How to Season a Panini Grill

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.

Customer questions about this product

How can I properly care for cast iron surfaces?
In order to prevent unwanted build-up of oils, grease, and food, surfaces should be cleaned after use while still slightly warm. Harsh chemicals or scouring pads should not be used—only hot water and a cloth or sponge are needed. If some areas require extra cleaning, a mild scouring pad can be used. Please refer to our Pan Seasoning Guide for further information on properly cleaning and seasoning cast iron surfaces.
