We purchased this grill almost a year ago and so far we have no complaints. We use the grill for paninis and grill cheese sandwiches - it cooks the sandwiches evenly, melts all the cheese and gives it a nice crispy brown finish all in other 5 minutes. The grill is very easy to clean especially if you use the brush that it comes with.
This panini grill is a great addition to any coffee shop! It's easy to use and can hold up to four sandwiches at a time!
Unfortunately, my review is negative. I am returning this grill, as the tensions on the top plates are continually needing tightening. After several uses at my busy restaurant, I must stop and tighten the tension on the top plate trying not to burn myself. In addition, the top plates mash the food toward the back of the grill due to the wiring cable that pushes the grill down in the back. Just a poor engineering design! I have tried to make it work, but it is making it harder for me to enjoy my commercial kitchen! I am ordering another brand that will hopefully stay tightened throughout the day and will not smash my sandwiches in the back.Thank you for your feedback, Deborah! We are sorry this grill did not work for you, we hope the new one works out better! If you are looking for recommendations, please feel free to contact our Customer Solutions team!
We have been using this press for a few months now, and so far it is working really well. I do wish that the cooking surface was a bit larger, but it is pretty efficient.
We purchased two of these units for our bar. Within six months one of them had a turn on switch go bad. Waring sent a new unit out and was super easy to work with. Just recently the other unit had a switch go bad. The warranty is only for 1 year - and we've had it for two - which is unfortunate since they are costly. We are talking to an electrician on what it'll take to repair the switch. These do get used almost daily and besides the switch going bad they work well.
This waring panini press has been a wonderful addition to our nightclub kitchen. The plates are heavy duty and fairly easy to clean. Great price and exceptionally fast shipping.
Very glad we found this panini grill on this site! This is our second grill. The first one we bought from a restaurant supply store, but we found it cheaper on this site with free shipping.
This is probably the best Panini Press I have ever used at any restaurant I have worked at. Comes up to temp real quick and can use for multiple sandwiches
This is a very good product! It comes up to temperature very quickly and stays at temperature just as it should! The grooves make for great grilled sandwiches!!
We use this machine everyday in our bistro. It warms up fast(within 10-15 mins) and has no problem being left on all day. We are able to fit 4 paninis on at a time. The only reason am giving it 4 stars is because the front 2 paninis take longer to grill than the back 2. Sometimes it just takes a little rotating the paninis halfway through to make sure all 4 are done at the same time. Otherwise awesome machine!!
If you're a fan of high-performance equipment in a residential kitchen, then the Waring WPG300 Panini Ottimo is for you. It weighs 75 pounds, most of which is due to the 2 upper and 1 lower grooved cast iron plates. Plenty of 'thermal mass' is available for the 3,200 watts of heat power to deeply penetrate sandwiches, chicken, steaks, etc. We use ours on top of the stove to make use of the vent hood. Two hundred & forty volts ROCKS!
