Create all of your signature hot sandwiches easily with one of our many commercial panini grills! These countertop powerhouses are becoming some of the most popular pieces of equipment in foodservice today. We have tons of options to choose from to suit your business. We offer both grooved and smooth plates, as well as units that combine both features, so you can decide whether you want grill marks on both sides, just one side, or not at all. Plus, you can choose between aluminum or cast iron plates. Aluminum heats up faster, making it good for occasional use, while cast iron is better at retaining heat, making it the ideal choice for prolonged use. We even have non-stick options that are easy to clean and naturally prevent food from sticking. Depending on how many and what kinds of sandwiches you grill per day, you may also want to consider one of our dual-plated models. These units double your productivity, allowing you to make two sandwiches at once at two different temperatures. You can even designate one side for vegetarian, and the other for meat, helping you cater to all of your valued customers. To help you choose the right option for your business, we've broken down our panini grills into medium- and heavy-duty applications. If you think you'll only need to use it occasionally throughout the day, a medium-duty unit might be the way to go. However, for filling constant orders throughout the day, a heavy-duty model will work best. Be sure to also check out our selection of turners and sandwich spreaders, as well as our grill cleaners and scrapers to get everything you need for your business.

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.

    I have had mine for 3 years now and NEVER let me down. People said I should buy a more popular brand so it would not break down on me. Dont believe it! These work great!

    Had this thing for a few month's now.. It has worked like a champ so far. Easy to maintain, even heating once it has been on for a while. Really my only complaint, and it's a small one that I haven't heard others voice, is that when you raise the handle you have to hold the machine down with one hand or it will tilt backwards since the (pneumatic?) arm that helps support the weight of the top is a bit too stiff. There may be a way to adjust that, I'll admit to not having tried as I would hate to mess it up. Murphy's law is strong within me.

    The Avantco P70S Smooth Commercial Panini Sandwich Grill is an amazing resource especially considering the more than reasonable price point. I’ve been needing a panini press for several years but I didn’t want to spend money on a store grade model. Once I came across this model I knew I had to buy it and after only a couple of weeks of use I must say that I am far from disappointed in its performance and effectiveness.

    I can not say enough good things about this grill. We love it and use it daily. We've been able to expand our menu since we added it to our kitchen.
    Very good product, to be honest I had a more expensive one and it works almost the same as this one. I recommend it after 2 months of using, if it can last up to a year for the price I would not hesitate to buy another one of the same. My only complaints would be that it takes a while to heat up to your desired temperature (15-20 min maybe a bit more) other than that I have it on all day and works fine.
    Love the Avantco press works great for my Cuban sandwiches can put 4 at a time and keeps its temperature all day, cleans easy perfect for toasting bread.
    What can we say the name says it all the Avantco P70S Commercial Panini Sandwich Grill with Smooth Plates - 13" x 8 3/4" Cooking Surface - 120V, 1750W is the best panini grill out there
    Great product, very reliable and sturdy. Never have a problem with it and have two of them at our restaurant. They do get used quite a bit and handle well with continuous and multiple use.
    I did a fair amount of research on brands and price for a commercial panini grill w/ smooth plates and this was the winner. This model has performed very well so far (a month in). I will likely purchase the grill cleaning kit w/ it's grill scraper as it's otherwise difficult to keep the plates clean and free of burnt residue.
    I love this panini press!! It keeps up with my busy business and cooks evenly and perfectly. I went for the smooth too and bottom plates because grill marks are over rated and harder to keep the grill clean. I make perfect sandwiches every time!
    Heats up fast and gets hot. The only complaint I have is upon arrival there was a noticeable spot on the cast iron bottom griddle and upon seasoning it looks well worn now. Seems to get hotter in that spot.
    This is a great working panini sandwich grill. The price is fantastic compared to the other brands and other merchants. We run this machine from morning till night and has worked wonderfully.
    This is a great product and brand. I know several other restaurants that use this in the county. Great price point on top f it all.
    Went shopping at two local supply houses here in Las Vegas, neither of them had any sort of "selection" when it came to sandwich presses, and the ones they had were only grooved panini style. Happy to have somewhere to purchase what I want, not choose from what they have.
    We own two of these, purchased roughly a year apart. The thermostat on both units, right at the year mark, have shorted out and have needed replacing. On a daily basis they do what they need to do, they stay hot, but having the thermostat short out and fry on two separate units purchased so far apart shows me this is not a quality built-to-last unit. I suppose you get what you pay for when you buy a cheaper unit?
    Opened the P7OS avantco panini Grill. After following instructions for cleaning and seasoning, the machine constantly sends heavy smoke&oder through out my store. Can not afford to continue using this product. Please send information regarding return. Thank you
    Unboxed and opened this morning. Following seasoning instructions turned on the unit. It ran for 20 minutes and then stopped. Checked breaker was fine. Tried it in 3 other known working outlets and nothing. Returning for refund.
    Unit works very well. Be sure to have the proper amperage to run more that one at a time. Works best on separate circuits but this to be expected with any unit. Heats quickly and evenly. It does lean a bit toward the back so it presses more evenly if you are sire to balance the top before pressing. Overall a solid unit. Cleans easily but the thickness of the cast iron concerns me enough that I would not use metal utensils on this. It is holding up very well with plastic spatulas with no signs of wear.
