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.

    press great panini warranty needs plates grill heavy small temperature
    1 out of 1 found this review helpful

    The heating element works really well however after 4 weeks of consistent use, the hinges stopped holding up the top of the press which is really inconvenient when you are trying to put food on the grill.

    Great panini grill. Keep temperature long and work really fast. Only criticism would be that you need two outlets on the separate circuit. But other than that, if you solve that problem, you will be highly satisfy!

    We purchased two of these panini grills and they worked great for about 8 months. After 8 months, they lost their temperature control and the cost in fixing them was equivalent to the purchase of a new one. Unfortunately for us, the warranty is a 6 month warranty, thus, they were not covered under warranty. We even alternated which panini press we used throughout the week to spread out the wear and tear of these, expecting that with that procedure we could extend their life by at least a year....nope! Didn't even last a year. I believe these to be a good purchase if you are operating a very small volume commercial kitchen. Otherwise, spend the bigger money on the higher quality equipment.

    Highly recommend this press. We had been making do with a home model and this press easily cuts our prep time in half. We considered the double groove plates, but are so glad we went with the flat bottom for ease of clean up. I wish there were options for removable plates, but I imagine they don't heat as well or as evenly. Only problem is how heavy it is, but it's what I would expect from solid cast iron.

    This panini grill is great! It heats quickly, and cooks evenly. When we saw the low price were were a little bit hesitant as to whether it would be a good fit for our cafe. It does great!

    from Brewed Expressions Posted on

    This press worked ok, in the first week or two the pins supporting the arm popped off, so the press wouldn't stay where you put it. Annoying, but manageable. Otherwise it's fine since February, which puts us at just under 8 months. Now a thermostat is broken, and there no temperature control on the top plate; max heat all the time, burns everything we put on it. Oh, did you notice that 6 month warranty? Really, with no damage, not moving around, just doing exactly what it's been designed to do, this should really last at least a year. I recommend you buy something else.

    This is one of our favorite pieces of equipment. Our cooking needs are limited and small but thing does it all! Extremely durable and well constructed. Its twice as heavy as I expected it to be and it needs 2 separate circuits, but its worth every bit of extra effort setting it up. Easy to clean, highly recommended!

    Received the panini press today. Press is heavy duty and in good working order. Can't wait to start using it in my cafe. Thanks a million.

    Great edition to any small kitchen. We don't have a flat top in our restaurant and this is the perfect inexpensive option for adding variety to our menu.
