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.

Flat Panini Grill

Flat Panini Grill

This Waring compact toasting grill is a really great versatile piece of equipment to have in your kitchen. You can make anything from grilled cheeses to hamburgers to Cuban sandwiches which is what I’m going to show you how to make today. First, I’m going to place two slices of ham on my roll, then a slice of roast pork, two slices of Swiss cheese and two slices of dill pickle. Then, I’m going to put a little bit of yellow mustard on the half of my roll. Now, it’s time to toast these sandwiches. I’m using the Waring toasting grill with flat plates because I want the Cuban sandwiches to be nice and toasted on both sides and flattened a little bit. I’m just going to spray a little bit of Vegalene on the plates to prevent sticking and place these sandwiches on the grill; and these have nice heavy plates so I press down and I don’t need to sit and hold the top down. And, here you can see we have a beautifully and evenly toasted Cuban sandwich made with the Waring flat sandwich grill. If you’re interested in any of the items seen in this video, you can check them out in the links below.

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.
Is it possible to change the type of grill plate on my panini grill from smooth to grooved, or vice versa?
No, the manufacturer does not recommend changing the grill plate type on your panini grill. In the event that a replacement plate is needed, the plate type must match the one currently on your grill.

    grill easy grilled fast great sandwiches needs clean Panini top

    Great grill for a small set up but the plates wore out pretty fast. Perhaps we need a bigger grill for the amount of sandwiches we're selling but overall, this grill gets the job done and is very easy to operate and clean.

    from The Cold Pressery Posted on

    Our customers love this Panini Grill has a very useful capacity and we like the fact that it is countertop and electric, so we don't have to worry about any special installations, just hook it up anywhere and you are good to go! Great for outdoor events too and food trucks.

    from AMERMEX FROZEN PRD Posted on

    Not a commercial grade unit. The wire going to the top press has broken twice. The hinge for the top press, while adjustable, can fall down on your hands and needs constant adjusting. Won't buy again.

    Thanks for reviewing this! We are sorry this has not held up as you would have liked it to. Check out our Looking for Replacements tab on this page for a large selection of parts to keep your grill in best working condition.

    This grill works great- however it does not last very long. We have had two of them break within 10 months. We are not a very high volume cafe, so it's not even getting used that much. The first time one of the wires to the top grill broke off and the second grill just stopped working one day. Both times Waring/Webstaurantstore were helpful in getting replacements. But I am very weary of this brand now.

    from Healthy Creations Posted on

    This panini grill is fantastic. It heats up fast. Cooks fast. It is our only grille and we put out about 70-100 sandwiches a day. I would def buy another one.

    from Brewed Awakenings Posted on

    This has to be by far my favorite piece of equipment in the shop! Gives all my sandwiches the glaze and crisp look that keeps customers coming back!

    from Big Hern's CUban Sandwich Shop Posted on

    I purchased this panini grill 3 weeks ago, and I am very pleased with it. I saw it in other restaurants equipment catalogs for a lot more money, thank you webstaurant.

    from boskees,Inc. Posted on

    This is this first time that I've purchased at webrestaurant and I found everything to be easy, fast, and very user friendly. The staff was courteous and understood my needs. I will definitely be back....Thank you

    from Superpizza Posted on

    we use it to warm roti skins and fry eggs in the morning. Easy to control temperature and it's really easy to clean. Only used one week, but satisfied so far.

    from Roti & Dumplings Posted on

    This grill is great for grilled sandwiches, such as grilled cheese, reubens, etc. Easy to clean, doesn't take up a lot of space. Love it.
