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

Works great for our small cafe. Doesn't take up too much space either. Heats up our sandwiches in about 3 minutes! People love panini sandwiches!
JoAnn H. from Full of Beans Cafe Posted on 12/14/2017
Simple, easy to use and convenient for making a quick Panini Sandwich. Just what my wife needed for her cafe. She is using it as the second Panini Grill.
Edward M. from JJ Cafe Posted on 12/10/2017
this product is great for the low amount of panni's we make. It warms up nicely for us and in matter of a few minutes it can be used for the panni. cast iron works great also and takes little work to keep clean

Perfect Panini's all day long! The Avantco P78 Grooved Commercial Panini Sandwich Grill - 13" x 8 3/4" has the perfect grilling area and heats up quick to serve perfect grilled sandwiches.
Herman H. from In-stock supply inc Posted on 10/26/2017
This guy was cheap and it heats our burritos like a champ. It makes a slight clicking sound as it cycles the element on and off, so I don’t recommend it for bedside service, but it seems to be built like a tank otherwise.
Ian M. from Little Lion Ice Cream Posted on 10/20/2017
Excellent panini sandwich grill. With a little bit of oil, sandwiches crisp up nicely and have the beautiful crisp lines. Will be adding a couple more to the kitchen soon.
Hannah P. Posted on 10/04/2017
Bought this to replace a Turbo Chef for making sandwiches. It's very durable. We've only had it a short time so it's hard to say. I will say that the hydronic handle for opening and closing the press is very difficult to move up and down. It does it's job. But I don't understand why it's so hard to open
Donna S. Posted on 10/02/2017
We have been using this panini press for well over two years and it only gets better with age. Our paninis are perfectly seasoned and taste delicious!
Brynn G. from Coffee Corner Posted on 09/27/2017
So far so good, we've had this panini press for a few weeks. Aggressive sandwich press, the plates are nice and hot. Equipment gets to temp fast, easy to clean, seems to be very durable and handles the volume with no issue.
Randall R. Posted on 09/11/2017
This is a wonderful sandwich press, the only problem is cleaning it and also within a year of having it in our kitchen, we had to replace the element in the unit.
Rhonda L. from Lizzie's Grill-N-Chill Posted on 09/06/2017
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
Trae G. from lettusknow Posted on 07/13/2017
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.
