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.

How to Season a Panini Grill

Learn how to season your Panini grill for consistent, delicious results with every sandwich!

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.

    This panini grill worked great for 8 months then one side starting giving me problems. It either quickly burns the bread or hardly cooks it at all. It's like the middle range of temperatures don't work anymore. I now realize why they only give a six month warranty.

    Thank you for the feedback on this panini grill. We really do apologize for any trouble that it may have caused you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you right away.

    I would rate this press 4 out of 5, but after a year, one side of the grill gets so hot that i burn the bread. I tried contacting Avantco but all you can do is send an email and their warranty is only six months. It would be practical to use another brand that believes in its products enough to offer longer warranties.

    Thank you for the review! We're sorry this is not working well for you right now. We suggest looking in the Looking for Replacements section on the product page as you may need to replace the element or the thermostat.

    LIke many others here, it went bad after 8 months, 2 months out of warranty. Manufacturer didn't care in spite of similar reviews. They should be making good on these issues, since the problems appear to be similar. I will NEVER EVER buy another product from this manufacturer, unless they suddenly refund or fix my grill. Very disappointing.

    from Victor W Pulizzano KAKJ 2 LLC Posted on

    Thank you for the review, Victor. We're very sorry that you've had a negative experience with this sandwich grill. To get your grill working again, have a service technician install this Avantco P8TOPELM Replacement Top Heating Element in your unit.

    Love this Panini sandwich maker. Makes the perfect panini. We get evenly cooked and professional looking sandwiches every time. The press gives the right amount of weight on the sandwich too.

    from Renaissance Wine Garden Posted on

    I use this hundreds of times a day in my deli! I love it! It works great! I have not had problems with it. I would recommend this is you are needing a lot of items on the grill

    from New Deli Posted on

    This panini press works well, the tops are a bit smaller then I had anticipated, so i can not do big quesadillas on this press. My only issue is the fact that it arrived with a very large dent in the back of it. I haven't had a chance to take pictures and send them to you yet, because I need to use it for 2 big events I was doing. (Pictures will be sent in a few days) but they do heat well. Cleaning isn't the easiest either.

    from Crocs Xtreme Italian Ice Posted on

    So far, so good. Season the plates and you shouldn't have any sticking problems. The removable tray makes cleanup easy. Hope it lasts us a while.

    This grill does a great job on Panini sandwiches, and my customers love them. This also does a great job on grilling pork steaks done in 4 minutes.

    from Boondocks Posted on

    Avantco makes great equipment. This is our 2nd panini press. We out grew the first one which was a large solid one. The 2 press systems allows you to not interrupt a sandwich being grill while needing to add another one the press.

    from The Grill at Oconee Sweet Sensations Posted on

    This is a nice looking Panini Grill. IT worked great for about a year then the heat element stopped working right and it burnt the bread on one side. it was of course right after the warranty expired. probably would not buy again.

    from Andy B's of Tulsa Posted on

    so far we have been very pleased with this and so have our customers, easy to use and clean, very happy we chose the double over the single

    from DACEMAN LLC Posted on

    This Panini grill is great! It is easy to clean and makes great paninis but is also big enough to make quesadillas which is a big plus!

    from brewed awakenings Posted on

    This works pretty darn good for our restaurant. We use it daily basis to go ahead and make all of our paninis in the restaurant

    from The Neighbors Bar and Grille Posted on

    Absolutely love this. Easy to use and has helped us to increase business. Cooks well and still works wonderfully. We call it the magic panini machine.

    from Black & Cold Creamery Posted on

    Very good product. We had trouble getting the grill seasoned even though we followed the directions. Once we got it seasoned then it has worked well.

    from Kelson Inc Posted on

    Bought as a replacement for our very old pres. The Avantco P84 Sandwich press so far as been a great replacement. Nice even heating provides great looking grill marks to sandwiches. Very nice that the top grills stay in place. Outside stainless steel gets dirty quickly, must stay on top of it. We do wish the warranty was longer.

    Avantco P84 Sandwich Grill

    Bought a second set for the restaurant. Great price for the grills. Takes a few grilling times to get it adjusted but works great for quick service paninis

    Posted on

    We use these grills for paninis at our restaurant and cafe. They take a little breaking in when first purchased but grilled the sandwiches well.

    Posted on

    Originally purchased one over 7 years ago. Worked great for over 6 years of heavy use. Purchased a second one last year. Has been replaced twice for random parts/controls being loose/broken. Received last replacement in February. Today one of the handles is completely loose with inner wiring showing. After contacting the company I was told that it was out of warranty since the original purchase was made back in August. QUALITY IS FAR FROM WHAT IT USED TO BE! DO NOT BUY!
