Smooth Grill Plates

The smooth, 13" x 8 3/4" grilling area ensures complete contact with your product for consistent, even heat supply. The cast iron plate construction provides long-lasting durability and strength.

Specialized Hinges

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

Heat Resistant Handle

The panini grill itself can reach up to 570 degrees to cook your sandwiches and quesadillas at top speed, but the handle will remain cool to the touch.

Thermostatic Controls

To ensure consistency, the thermostatic controls allow you to adjust the temperature of the grill to accommodate the appropriate cooking temperatures for different foods. With a 120-570 degree Fahrenheit range, you'll have no trouble keeping up with high-demand.

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 quickly.

grill great panini press easy more price sandwich unit works

Customer Reviews


Great press, we got 2 of them. Gets hot fast, stays hot. Cleans pretty easy, if storing it could have rust spots on cast iron, but can clean off.

Clayton E. from Short Bus Catering LLC on 02/16/2022

for the price this is pretty good, but if you are looking for something with even heat so you can cook on all edges, this isn't it. if you're primarily making one item on it, centered, then this will work well. good hinge, leveling and heat retention.

Sid M. from Naan Toaster on 02/09/2022

This is a great toasted sandwich maker! We use it for a our toasty needs at our coffee shop. It heats up super quick and works a charm!

Conor B. from 5 Points Coffee & Tea on 12/18/2021


Milagros V. from Milnmil on 05/18/2021

Great panini press, we use this one all the time and haven't had any issues. Relatively easy to clean (although I will say its not super easy to get the back edge). Makes our paninis nice and crispy.

Michael K. from Rise Bakery on 01/03/2021

This is my first Panini grill and have to say it gets small jobs done fast! The flat top can be used as a mini griddle and is easy to clean

Matt G. from Brine Barrel Deli on 10/01/2020

This sandwich grill has been a great addition to our kitchen! Heats up quickly and cooks evenly. I'm impressed with how quickly it Cooks our items!

Amanda W. from The Colonial Hotel on 08/21/2020

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.

German D. on 04/14/2020

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.

Edurne Z. from Mad Cuban Cafe on 03/04/2020

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

Herman H. from Deli Central on 08/24/2019

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.

Nathan M. from Snowbelt Brewing Company on 04/25/2019

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.

Brenda M. from Little Beast Brewing, LLC on 09/04/2018

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!

Janell B. from The Fit Bar on 04/10/2018

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.

Todd G. from Comfort Cuisine on 01/08/2018

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.

Donald W. from Classic Burger Group Inc. on 11/07/2017

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.

Shawn B. from Creamland Food & Ice Cream LLC on 09/10/2017

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.

Ryan P. from Monti's Smokehouse BBQ on 08/28/2017

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?

Slow H. from Slow Hand Coffee on 08/14/2017

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!

Peter C. from Cafe 532 And Deli LLC on 06/26/2017

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.

Stan W. on 05/08/2017

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.

Maurice W. from Smofried.Com on 04/26/2017

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

Joseph T. from Turco's Deli on 11/11/2016

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.

Shane L. on 10/03/2016

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.

Debra H. from Let's Do Lunch on 04/18/2016

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.
