Customer Reviews

This press is PHENOMENAL! Heats fast and evenly. The cast iron becomes well seasoned after a few uses and sandwiches never come out sticking or burnt. Cooks sandwiches in about 30 seconds.

This Panini press works great since we serve wraps and sandwiches. Plus it cooks evenly and cleans well. It cooks fast and we have gotten a very good reception ever since we bought it.

This panini press is a great reliable product that is comparable to the high end brands at a lower cost. The red color looks nice in the kitchen as well

I have two of these, they work great! Why spend more? I never understand equipment brand when you could spend half as much and replace twice as often?

It's been over a year now and this press has made several thousand sandwiches and is still going strong. Cleaning the grooves is not easy, but we scrub it with a wire brush it every night and the carbon build-up never gets too bad.

We ordered the double press after using the single as we got busier at the restaurant we needed to add more presses so we tried the double it did not disappoint works great.

I really like this panini grill. I do however, have a major complaint. I had never previously used ones and was not familiar with how to clean one. The directions were vague and we got so much buildup on it that food didn't cook properly. I had to scrape and scrub - which I'm sure ruined the surfaces. I no longer grill directly on the plates - instead we wrap a foil square around our sandwiches (shiny side inward) and grill them in the foil. It works great and saves us from cleaning the grill other than wiping it a little here and there.

Great Panini Press. Love it has two sides with different thermostats and separate plugs so you can use on a 110 outlet. Has held up for quite some time.

We bought this press as our main sandwich press in a restaurant that serves melts as a menu category. We like it -- its a great value for the price and toasts the bread nicely. I like that the tops are heavy enough to stay down when you press them.

Great press. We used it with 2 separate plugs so it wouldn't trip breaker. Gets hot fast, stays hot. Cleans pretty easy, if storing it could have rust spots on cast iron, but can clean off.

Absolutely wonderful press!!! Opened a pizza shop in a small.rural town,and decided to offer hot sandwiches as well,so bought this because I'm on a budget. It work amazingly well!!! Easy to operate,easy to clean and pays for itself within a week or two. Looking to buy a second one due to increased demand! This press is HEAVY and well constructed.

Liked these so much that we bought 2 of them. They can cook 2 grilled cheese at once (4 if you fit them in snug. I guess it all depends on the bread size). They always provide an even cook. The grease can trap where the plates swing up and down and can be a pain to clean... but other than that, they are perfect.

Works as advertised. Delivers consistent heat, on both top and bottom burners, and both left and right sides. I would recommend this for the price that was paid.

I must admit, at first this grill work as describe, however two month into operation I had to get rid of it. The surface was peeling with metal flakes. This was the main equipment for my restaurant and we use it all day. Thankfully Webstaurantstore was very responsive and refunded my purchase. I used the credits to purchase a cast iron grill. I would recommend this product for very light use not commercial use.

The double commercial Sandwich press makes the best Whappos Cubanos! We love using this press for all of the Whappos Sandwiches! Its easy to use and it is very reliable!

This grill is perfect for making quick sandwiches but the only downfall is the small size as well as the awkward drip tray that doesn't seem to fit.

Great deal, if you prefer to save some money. Basically using this one for wraps and panini. Easy to use and clean. Definitely worth buying.
