You can not beat the value of these presses. Hundreds of dollars less than the competitors and works just as well if. It better than most of them.

We have used the single press version of this for over a year and then moved to the double. It uses 2 outlets but that isn't an issue in our kitchen. This unit is quick, simple and has worked great for us for sandwiches. etc...

The best panini grill on the market. It is very reasonably priced for quality of this product. It is also very easy to clean up after each use!

This is a great panini press. Perfect for our just starting out food truck! It is heavy duty and much heavier than I anticipated. Solid Product

Super groovy (pun intended), this grill does a great job cooking quickly and evenly. My only qualm is that it's difficult to clean. The surface is a little rough and loves to hold onto cheese and grease. Were I to order again, I would select the smooth bottom version for this reason.

I originally bought this grill 6 years ago and it worked great in my first cafe! It made sandwiches fast and we were able to grill 6 at a time. We never had any issues with it. I am opening a new cafe and just bought the same grill to use at this location as well! Recommend.

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.

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

This thing gets HOT!! We are a very busy 24 hour diner and this thing never stops. We make paninnis all day and after 8 months of operation there have been absolutely no hiccups in this machine.

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

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.

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.

Jeremy Davis from Panini Planet
Posted on 6/8/2017 12:00:00 AM

Does the job, assuring your customer that their Panini was actually made on a Panini press (see toasty lines), and not thrown in the microwave (horror!). Also potentially useful for home invasion, should you need something heavy to throw at intruders...

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.

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.

We bought this panini press for our cafe. it has worked great so far. we do have issues with the power switch, but a reset usually fixes it.

This panini grill is awesome, only bad thing about it that it is a double cover and as per LA county Health Dept. it has to be under the Hood and can not be a stand alone! Otherwise its great

This is a great Panini press for the money. Our customer's are all very happy we added panini's to the menu and at this price makes it very easy to re-coop your start-up expenses.

This panini grill is so easy to use. You can change the temperture according to your needs. The only thing I don't like is the cleaning. Sometimes, it is difficult for our staff to clean it, but I think this is common on all other panini grills.

Posted on 4/22/2013 12:00:00 AM

Sturdy and cheap! I ask price from a company that i buy some equipment before i find this website and they are double the price!! I worked with this same model in another restaurant and for how much i loved this thing i buy another one for my own

We needed a small panini press this fit the bill . It does take two outlets , more then likely two circuts.. pros- cost ease of use. cons does not have option of smooth plates

This is an amazing buy. I currently replaced my Waring (still working) which was much heavier and bulkier with this grill. This was a lot cheaper and a space saver.

Talk about saving time! This double featured panini grill allows you to crank out a lot of sandwiches quickly! Worked wonders at a banquet event! High quality grill!!

Panini grill worked ok. Takes a few minutes to heat up. Never used commercial one before so I guess that is expected. While still under warranty the plug broke so I contacted Webstaurant customer service. They would only send a new plug part and not replace unit. Too much trouble to find a technician to fix and figured would cost almost as much as buying a new one so just bought a second one since i needed to be able to use it immediately.

Avantco P84 Double Grooved Commercial Panini Sandwich Grill is truly a great addition, It is fast and effective. This grill was a great addition to our kitchen. No regrets whatsoever.

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.

This is a very large panini press unit that is good for making a variety of grilled sandwiches fast. It has a dual lid feature that is perfect for continuous toasting of sandwiches.

After a lot of shopping, we decided to go with this panini grill for our cafe. We use it heavily and it has held up just fine. We cook our sandwiches at 160 degrees for about 3 minutes...it does take time to cook and melt the cheese. This is the temp that works for us to melt but not burn the bread.

Never had a problem with this panini sandwich grill, and we have had it for over a year. Easy to clean, and cooks very evenly.

Bought this grill about 2 years ago for my bakery/cafe that serves up panini's for lunch. This has kept on trucking along, allowing us to produce ~40-60 paninis per day.

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.

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!

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

Chris Potratz from The Neighbors Bar And Grille
Posted on 12/21/2016 12:00:00 AM

We love this new grill! Each side has it's own plug so we can plug in only what is needed, especially important in the mornings with limited outlets and multiple equipment being used to prep for the day. Easy set up, within about 30 min of opening the package we were already making sandwiches with the press and they turned out wonderful. Highly recommend this for an affordable but functional press for a small café. We do about 15-20 sandwiches during lunch and having this press will make our product more appealing to the customer as well as easier for our staff to prepare.

Makes perfectly pressed sandwiches and grilled vegetables. I even grill mini burgers on my panini press. It fits almost any counter top. It was definitely a great purchase.

This Grill has been excellent - it's compact enough yet allows for 2 orders going at once. It heats up quite quickly and has been a solid machine - no problems!

Posted on 12/1/2010 12:00:00 AM

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.

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.

Cory Maillet from Port City Cafe And Pub

This is a great unit for a high volume sandwich stop! Looks pretty easy to clean, and that cast iron is sure to leave a great grill mark on any bread!!

We use this grill every day to make paninis and other grilled sandwiches for breakfast. It works well and has held up well. We also purchased the Avantco P75SG grill with groved and smooth plates and that one works excellent as well!

The panini presses arrived two days after they were ordered. We are extremely satisfied with the product and the turn around time on shipping and receiving.

We have two of these units for our sandwich shop. They get the job done pretty well. We have to oil the mechanism for the upper grill to be moved up and down as it becomes stiff over time. Other than that the unit has performed well. It has been in use for about 5 months now. We make primarily panini's with the unit.

Chris Cardo from Boxcar Barneys

We have been using this model for almost 6 years now, during this time we have bought 5 or 6 of them, i would not recommend them if you business is a grilled sandwich shop, your going to end up replacing them every year.

Omar Lopez from Paninis
Posted on 10/2/2019 12:00:00 AM

Without a full kitchen or a hood, it's been tricky finding food we can serve at our coffee shop to make it more versatile. This grill is great for toasting and paninis. Our shop isn't wired well and we have trouble running both sides at the same time without tripping a breaker.

Patrick Corkum from Charm City Tesfa, LLC

Love this. We have used it for over a year. We do have to randomly tighten a screw in the back that holds the top of the panini machine. This is not a big deal for us.

I bought the double Panini grill as we offer two different types of hot sandwiches to it's great to be able to independently control the temps for each half of the press. The sandwiches turn out great.

Nathan Sensenig from

We love the texture this gives to our sandwiches once they’ve been pressed. The size is nice, allowing you to press two sandwiches at one time.
