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.

Specialized Hinge

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.

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.

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.

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. This ensures the user's safety during operation.

We bought this panini grill back in 2018. We have absolutely loved it, and our customers love their sandwiches. However, we are now experiencing problems where the top plate is no longer heating up and the bottom plate is heating but now it's cooking hotter since the top plates not heating up. I am reconsidering buying again but I'm going to look into other options, because I think it should last more than 3 years.

This panini press produces the perfect panini. Creates grill marks, and evenly toasts the bread, melting cheese all the way through. Love this product and highly recommend.

Charlie I. from A&K Neidert LLC on 01/06/2019

Excellent performer!! So much so that after 9 months of use we are going to purchase another! Heating surface stays hot in between uses exactly as needed.

Susan S. on 02/08/2022

This panini press is perfect for our shop and exactly what we were looking for. It heats up quickly and leaves the paninis with nice looking grooves and toasts the bread evenly inside and out. It is solid, sturdy and of good quality. This sandwich grill has a really good price and is very easy to clean, we suggest using a wire brush. We highly recommend this product!

Jose M. from Josia's LLC on 05/24/2021

This Panni Sandwich Grill press has been great. Heats quickly. Will burn it if you put your food in and it is still heating up. I would buy again.

Stephanie M. from Gator Bait on 01/16/2021

This little panini grill has been amazing! We can cook up to 2 sandwiches at the same time which saves customer waiting times and clean up is extremely easy when you get the Carlisle 4067100 Sparta Wire Grill Brush with Scraper Plastic Handle!

Bryce H. from 109 & Co. on 11/02/2020

It is standard weight and easy to move around for brunches and events. Easy to clean and it also looks very nice and presentable. We recommend it.

Michelle on 02/07/2020

This model is perfect for us, since it has an excellent performance in sandwich stores to sell their paninis and their wraps and its price is very good

Practicarga from GRUPO CNS COLOMBIA SAS on 09/12/2019

This does exactly what we need it to do. It heats quickly and is easy to clean at the end of the day. It does not have a bunch of useless features that will eventually need servicing.

Kristin H. from Nourish Louisa LLC on 05/18/2019

This product makes my customers come back and become loyal despite the fact that I have a lot of competition around me. I really love the crunchy feelings of the sandwiches..

Nasr A. from Roksana Gourmet on 04/19/2019

Exactly what I was looking for. Both sturdy and compact, i can easily feet more than 4 paninis at the same time. Good value for this inexpensive product

Alexandre B. on 02/24/2019

I have not had this grill long, but it has out-performed my expectations. For an inexpensive grill it works great. The handle is a bit stiff AND there is a learning curve with regard to where to put your sandwiches, but overall the heating is very even.

Erin R. from FC LLC. on 02/12/2019

this works perfectly. it makes the perfect grill marks on any sandwich and heats up quickly. it is also very easy to clean. worth it

Senia J. from Sena Llc on 12/30/2018

Very nice product. i recommend it. It handles well heavy duty tasks, keeps the temperature and the size is good for the place I have (40 seats). Make nice paninis!! Easy to clean as well, which is great!

Fabio P. on 09/11/2018

This is a good panini grill but it is not the easiest to use. It takes a while to heat up the grill and it is difficult to open up fully to put a sandwich in.

Humberto T. from Home Use on 06/27/2018

we grill our paninis on this grill. it is very difficult to clean, you can't take it apart to wash it and it needs washed often

Tron D. from Mahalos on 01/08/2018

Perfect size for my coffee bar counter for making a quick panini. Made of sturdy quality feels very hefty and does the job perfectly. Heavy top. Feels good in the hands.
