Customer Q&A Ask a Question

How can I properly care for cast iron surfaces?
In order to prevent unwanted build-up of oils, grease, and food, surfaces should be cleaned after use while still slightly warm. Harsh chemicals or scouring pads should not be used—only hot water and a cloth or sponge are needed. If some areas require extra cleaning, a mild scouring pad can be used. Please refer to our Pan Seasoning Guide for further information on properly cleaning and seasoning cast iron surfaces.
Is it possible to change the type of grill plate on my panini grill from smooth to grooved, or vice versa?
No, the manufacturer does not recommend changing the grill plate type on your panini grill. In the event that a replacement plate is needed, the plate type must match the one currently on your grill.

Get the most out of your panini grill by regularly cleaning and reseasoning the cast iron plates! Not only does this keep the plates naturally non-stick for smooth release, it also helps prolong the grill's service life and optimize your investment.

This Waring compact toasting grill is a really great versatile piece of equipment to have in your kitchen. You can make anything from grilled cheeses to hamburgers to Cuban sandwiches which is what I’m going to show you how to make today. First, I’m going to place two slices of ham on my roll, then a slice of roast pork, two slices of Swiss cheese and two slices of dill pickle. Then, I’m going to put a little bit of yellow mustard on the half of my roll. Now, it’s time to toast these sandwiches. I’m using the Waring toasting grill with flat plates because I want the Cuban sandwiches to be nice and toasted on both sides and flattened a little bit. I’m just going to spray a little bit of Vegalene on the plates to prevent sticking and place these sandwiches on the grill; and these have nice heavy plates so I press down and I don’t need to sit and hold the top down. And, here you can see we have a beautifully and evenly toasted Cuban sandwich made with the Waring flat sandwich grill.

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.

For a carbon steel pan, start by washing, rinsing, and drying the pan. Heat the pan on your range on medium to high heat, then add shortening to the pan. Use a clean dry towel to spread the shortening around the interior of the pan, creating an even coat. Remove the pan from the heat, wipe out the excess shortening and let it cool. You can repeat this process up to 3 more times. For a cast iron skillet, preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking pan with aluminum foil and set aside. Wash, rinse, and dry your skillet. Place the skillet in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove and coat the entire skillet with shortening, inside and out. Place the skillet in the oven for 45 minutes with the baking pan on a rack below it to catch any mess. You can repeat this process up to three more times.

Panini grill seasoning, cleaning, and maintenance instructions. First, place the grill in a well-ventilated area, and discard the protective film. Then, clean the surface of the grill with soap and hot water. Wipe clean with a wet cloth. Plug in the grill to an electrical outlet, and turn the grill to the maximum setting. Switch the unit on. Smoke will appear as factory sediments burn off. Wait approximately 45 minutes. Once that's done, turn off the grill and let it cool. For the initial seasoning, pour shortening or vegetable oil on a brush or towel. Apply that oil to the grill plates and outer edges. Then allow the oil to set and dry. The plates will season automatically upon use, making the surface naturally non-stick. When cleaning the cast iron plates on a daily basis, use the included brush / scraper to scrape residue into the drip tray. Cover the entire plate at medium heat with a clean, damp rag, and close the grill on the rag. Let it sit for 1 minute. Then, with tongs or a spatula, remove the rag from the plates. Use caution, as the rag will be very hot. Wipe off any residual moisture, and let the grill cool. Reseason the grill weekly to prevent rusting. To do so, simply repeat the initial seasoning steps. This will help ensure that your panini grill is ready for years of use.

    1 out of 1 found this review helpful
    I don't know what I would do without this machine. Our restaurant started with a grill from a different brand. After 2 months, the grilled started stripping metal flakes. We returned the grills and got this model. A year later and we've had no issues. The cast iron is really sturdy and runs efficiently. I love this grill. We own a total of 8 grills across three restaurants.

    Great little unit. Fits two large paninis perfectly. I also use it to cook eggs, bacon, homefries, etc. Heats quickly and performs all day. Waring panini grills are the best value
    This is a very nice quality panini sandwich grill. You can easily fit two large sized paninis and it grills very evenly. My only complaint is the thing sucks some massive power and takes a while to heat up, which really heats up your room
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    This is a great addition to our deli. It has done well for about a year and a half, then it quit working. I bought another one, hope it lasts longer!
    This product meets my business needs. It is of sturdy construction and seems like it will last a long time. There are definitely certain spots on the surface that are hotter than others, but overall works well for low volume.
    This Is great little unit overall. it does not have huge power requirements. it is small and compact. i did have some issues with items sticking to the top plate dispite use of oils , sprays etc. it is on the small side but i knew that before hand. hopefully with more use I will get around the sticking.
    This is a great panini maker. It will grill two at a time and is very efficient. This is a great space saver for smaller areas.
