Grooved Grill Plates
The grooved plates provide tantalizing grill marks for an excellent presentation, while also ensuring complete contact with your product for consistent, even heat supply. The cast iron plate construction provides long-lasting durability and strength.
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.
The specialized hinge allows the top plate to lay flat against the food rather than at an angle. This ensures complete contact and uniform cooking.
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.

Do not buy this item it is a non nsf item. I do not know how it is listed as commercial panini press when I am unable to use it commercially.

This is a very good unit, it heats up for us relatively quickly. And holds temp really well. It presses the sandwiches and subs we make perfectly, and has lasted for over 8 months now and still looks brand new. Easy to clean, and maintain. Great press! Great price!

This is a great Panini Grill for the money. I'm always a bit hesitant when ordering on the lower end of the price scale, but this one is a hit. It's so easy to use for all the staff. Thanks

Wow. This panini press is amazing! Simple to use. Just plug it in and adjust the temperature with an easy to find knob. Highly recommend

I prefer this unit over my double panini press, these pressed work well, however they are not the easiest to clean. I stiff wire brush is need to scrap out the grooves.
David B. from Crocs Xtreme Italian Ice Posted on 07/13/2017
Really good panini grill. This unit has proved very rugged and reliable. It is equal in quality to any of the more expensive panini units.
Skylar B. from Cafe Blue Moose Posted on 06/04/2017
We serve a wide variety of sandwiches at our deli, and some of our most popular options are our paninis. We use they grills to make all of our paninis and we've used them for a very long time with no problems whatsoever.
Stephen B. from New Deli Posted on 03/29/2017
Avantco Grooved Commercial Panini Press is great for concession trailers and mobile kitchens. These Units are built well and generally stand the test of time.
Shaun R. from Hurricane Concessions & Rentals, LLC Posted on 03/06/2017
These work great. I own 2 of them for my sandwich shop. Can heat up to 4 sandwiches at a time. Last a long time.
Elise R. from Cafe Posted on 01/31/2017
Great deal! This Panini Grill is planned for expanding our menu, so we were not planning on spending as much for a product that we are going to try out. It is heavy duty.
Geraldine A. from Minute Cake n' Bake Posted on 01/16/2017
So far so good with our panini grill. Heavy duty with cast iron plates. Food will stick at first, but over time I know they will be stick resistant. This is a very heavy-duty item for the price. And the fact that you're given all possible choices regarding plates (flat or grill) was a big plus in our decision making.
C.J H. from Fat Cat Kitchen Posted on 12/19/2016
Y'all, we make paninis on this grill and it is the best ever!! It makes up to four sandwiches at a time which is awesome during busy lunch days
Bailey A. from Southern Grounds Coffee Shoppe Posted on 11/19/2016
This is my first commercial grill and is indeed a change from the non commercial on we had before. Heats up rather quickly and stays warm even when turned off . Great product
Rosemarie B. from Angeliques Cafe Posted on 11/15/2016
This is a very good and reliable commercial sandwich grill. I use it every day and every time it makes very nice grilled sandwiches. It is number one.
Ioannis T. from Cliffmart LLC Posted on 09/29/2016
This machine works like a charm. it makes the perfect Paninis and sandwiches. It really keeps up with needs of the business. I wish I had purchased a bigger one. its GREAT!!!!!!!
Sharon T. from pashays Posted on 09/04/2016
Initially, I would have given this product a top rating. Recently, however, the screws holding the handle on the lid in place stripped out. I figured I would suck it in and buy a new handle, but Avantco has advised me that a replacement handle cannot be purchased. That means I am going to have to spend the better part of a day trying to rethread the handle to accommodate oversize set screws, see if that works, and then hope that the bigger holes do not make the handle too weak - and that was the best suggestion from Avantco! Meanwhile, it is dangerous to use because the lid won't stay up and you have to prop it open to get sandwiches in and out.

We've used this several times in the few days since we've got it and the panini's are absolutely perfect. It has made very ordinary sandwiches special.
John S. Posted on 04/04/2016
Bought this to make paninis in our café. Works well. Must have it on and kept warm or else it take a while to make the paninis. Durable. Always fast shipping. Thanks,
Luis W. from Coffee Beanery/ L&A Cafe, LLC. Posted on 11/24/2015
We've used this for panini sandwiches for about two years now. It holds 4 paninis using big rectangular sourdough and does it quickly and evenly if you make sure to level off the lid. I honestly can't imagine a more expensive one doing any better. We even cook 1/4 lb hot dogs on it. This grill is so good, I am looking at getting a smooth one for burgers.
Willie V. from Dub V's Posted on 11/13/2015
This is a great panini maker; the size is large enough to make 2 or 3 sandwiches at a time but not so big that it takes up too much space on the work table. Heats up quickly and maintains a nice even heat. Probably too small if you are doing lots of paninis every day.
