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.

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.

    grill Great sandwiches panini unit quickly easy Waring Works paninis

    Top half of press is heavy and doesn't have proper support. The lid has fallen and squished sandwiches on press. Also can be dangerous if your hand is putting a sandwich on when it falls! It stopped heating up one day and we contacted Waring; they sent us a new one when we sent the broken one back. Solid warranty for a so-so product. Not great for all-day restaurant use.

    We bought this for our bakery café. It has worked great having half be flat and half grooved. We also have other paninis and this one is versatile.

    from Heavenly's A Creative Bakery Posted on

    Fantastic panini maker. We own a coffee shop and make about 20 to 25 panini a day and this machine does a fine job. It was shipped quickly and ready to plug in. Highly recommend it.

    from Moonrise cafe Posted on

    Works great in our small restaurant! Just keeps delivering on and on, no problem ever, great for two orders at a time, highly recommended with not a lot of money.

    from Carla T. Posted on

    We got this unit to replace a Waring unit that quit working after many, many years of service. We liked that unit so much that we replaced it with the same exact one. These are great machines! We have a couple paninis on one of our menus, and this Waring grooved top sandwich grill cooks them perfectly. Our sandwiches cook evenly no matter where they are placed on the grill, and the capacity is perfect for us-- you can fit 4 or so full sized sandwiches all at the same time.

    from Nickel's Pit BBQ Posted on

    A little bit disappointed Ibought one for my paininis restaurant, no so strong, I was waiting for better quality so far I will not buy it again

    from crepe Posted on

    Thank you for your review! We are sorry to hear that you were not completely satisfied with the panini press you bought recently. Try this Waring Grooved Panini Sandwich Grill for a more powerful option.

    Been looking for a unit that is well made and durable, the waring unit does and excellent job for the price. Make great panini's and more.

    This worked great perfect for the small shop that we have. It does take awhile to heat up but once it does it works well. Would not recommended it for anyone selling more than 4 sandwiches at a time.

    from Before It's Gone Posted on

    Couple years plus later and still going strong. I did have to replace switch - ordered replacement part and did myself, easy. Quite a workhorse.

    Posted on

    Thank God I found Webstaurantstore.com. My order was processed promptly and delivered timely! The grill is very easy to operate and works quite fine. I'll recommend this model to anyone looking for a panini grill at the right price!

    from Local Mocha Coffee Posted on

    Great grill, the grill part is very sturdy and easy to keep clear of charred food. Our only complaint is the hinges keep getting loose and the grill will either stay completely open or completely closed. Yes, I would buy another one.

    from Minden Meat Posted on

    This unit is a workhorse. All the other Panini machines burn out after a short time, (under a yr.) I bought this one approximately 2 yrs. ago and it is going strong. It heats up quickly and cooks evenly. It easily fits 2 paninis for faster serving times. I'm very happy with this Waring unit.

    from Titillations Posted on

    This is an excellent sandwich grill! We make sandwiches all the time in our store and the customers love that we now have a grill! It cleans up nicely and its very easy to use!

    Posted on

    This is a nice sized 120V unit. It heats up quickly and we can get up to 3 sandwiches on it at the same time. I would say it works better than I expected.

    from Crested Duck Charcuterie Posted on

    This is the best Panini machine I've ever used! AND they included a genius tool for cleaning it. No more yelling at the guys for destroying another knife scraping out the carbon. This grill gets so hot so fast, and works just so well!

    from Chef Dave's Catering Posted on

    I LOVE this panini press. GREAT for commercial use. Very easy to clean!! There is a timer that sets to 45 seconds and beeps when the sandwich is done.

    from The Food Court Posted on

    I love this panini grill. I have a food truck and when I get a lot of the same orders, I can do 4 sandwiches. It's quick and I absolutely love it. A big thanks to WEBstaurant for getting my equipment to me quickly. This panini grill is a money maker for me.
