This grill is pretty much the heart and soul of our daily lunch operation. Smooth and reliable performance plus even grilling have been so appreciated.

The heating element works really well however after 4 weeks of consistent use, the hinges stopped holding up the top of the press which is really inconvenient when you are trying to put food on the grill.

Great panini grill. Keep temperature long and work really fast. Only criticism would be that you need two outlets on the separate circuit. But other than that, if you solve that problem, you will be highly satisfy!

We use this panini press all day, everyday. It's a solid machine for pressed sandwiches. The only complaint I have about it is that its very heavy and without something to brace it, our sandwiches come out too flat. However, the durability makes it worthwhile.

Excellent value here!! We use this unit all day 6 days a week and it has held up great! This will heat a good sized sandwich in approximately 5-6 minutes. I will be purchasing a 2nd unit soon to increase our hot sandwich offerings.

Received the panini press today. Press is heavy duty and in good working order. Can't wait to start using it in my cafe. Thanks a million.

This panini grill is great! It heats quickly, and cooks evenly. When we saw the low price were were a little bit hesitant as to whether it would be a good fit for our cafe. It does great!

Great edition to any small kitchen. We don't have a flat top in our restaurant and this is the perfect inexpensive option for adding variety to our menu.

We purchased two of these panini grills and they worked great for about 8 months. After 8 months, they lost their temperature control and the cost in fixing them was equivalent to the purchase of a new one. Unfortunately for us, the warranty is a 6 month warranty, thus, they were not covered under warranty. We even alternated which panini press we used throughout the week to spread out the wear and tear of these, expecting that with that procedure we could extend their life by at least a year....nope! Didn't even last a year. I believe these to be a good purchase if you are operating a very small volume commercial kitchen. Otherwise, spend the bigger money on the higher quality equipment.

This grill is nice, it isn't too bulky and it give you much more space to accommodate the demands quickly. the only draw back was not knowing it uses two plugs. otherwise it is great.

This is one of our favorite pieces of equipment. Our cooking needs are limited and small but thing does it all! Extremely durable and well constructed. Its twice as heavy as I expected it to be and it needs 2 separate circuits, but its worth every bit of extra effort setting it up. Easy to clean, highly recommended!

We love this panini press! It was a great addition to out coffee shop. It works great for grilled cheese, toasting bread, or any sandwich that needs to be heated. Definitely recommend this product.

We use this grill to make panini in our wine bar. The dual zone is great as we often heat sausage on one side while making panini on the other. The machine is heavy duty and I can't imagine needing a more expensive model when this one works so perfectly. Would definitely buy again!

Okay, at first this grill wasn't my cup of tea. However, after using it for a while now it has only gotten better. needless to say I am now in love with this grill. It heats up fast. It leaves beautiful grill marks on our sandwiches. Its super easy to clean and i love that you can use one side at a time. I have learned that when youre not using it but its on to keep the tops down as it does put off a lot of heat and can over heat your kitchen and staff fairly quickly.

Fabulous product. Did require special electrical adjustment but does just what we needed it to. Even heating and love the look of the grooved top. We use in two ways, for our quesadillas and our panini sandwiches. We do use parchment paper to wrap each of them while on the grill. Makes cleanup quick and easy!

Highly recommend this press. We had been making do with a home model and this press easily cuts our prep time in half. We considered the double groove plates, but are so glad we went with the flat bottom for ease of clean up. I wish there were options for removable plates, but I imagine they don't heat as well or as evenly. Only problem is how heavy it is, but it's what I would expect from solid cast iron.

Had for a few months now and seem to be working great. No on/off switch but can control temperatures. It uses low power and works great with a standard outlet. The press evens out and presses evenly.
