I did a fair amount of research on brands and price for a commercial panini grill w/ smooth plates and this was the winner. This model has performed very well so far (a month in). I will likely purchase the grill cleaning kit w/ it's grill scraper as it's otherwise difficult to keep the plates clean and free of burnt residue.
This is a great product and brand. I know several other restaurants that use this in the county. Great price point on top f it all.
Went shopping at two local supply houses here in Las Vegas, neither of them had any sort of "selection" when it came to sandwich presses, and the ones they had were only grooved panini style. Happy to have somewhere to purchase what I want, not choose from what they have.
What can we say the name says it all the Avantco P70S Commercial Panini Sandwich Grill with Smooth Plates - 13" x 8 3/4" Cooking Surface - 120V, 1750W is the best panini grill out there
This sandwich grill has been a great addition to our kitchen! Heats up quickly and cooks evenly. I'm impressed with how quickly it Cooks our items!
Unit works very well. Be sure to have the proper amperage to run more that one at a time. Works best on separate circuits but this to be expected with any unit. Heats quickly and evenly. It does lean a bit toward the back so it presses more evenly if you are sire to balance the top before pressing. Overall a solid unit. Cleans easily but the thickness of the cast iron concerns me enough that I would not use metal utensils on this. It is holding up very well with plastic spatulas with no signs of wear.
I have had mine for 3 years now and NEVER let me down. People said I should buy a more popular brand so it would not break down on me. Dont believe it! These work great!
Had this thing for a few month's now.. It has worked like a champ so far. Easy to maintain, even heating once it has been on for a while. Really my only complaint, and it's a small one that I haven't heard others voice, is that when you raise the handle you have to hold the machine down with one hand or it will tilt backwards since the (pneumatic?) arm that helps support the weight of the top is a bit too stiff. There may be a way to adjust that, I'll admit to not having tried as I would hate to mess it up. Murphy's law is strong within me.
The Avantco P70S Smooth Commercial Panini Sandwich Grill is an amazing resource especially considering the more than reasonable price point. I’ve been needing a panini press for several years but I didn’t want to spend money on a store grade model. Once I came across this model I knew I had to buy it and after only a couple of weeks of use I must say that I am far from disappointed in its performance and effectiveness.
Great product, very reliable and sturdy. Never have a problem with it and have two of them at our restaurant. They do get used quite a bit and handle well with continuous and multiple use.
I can not say enough good things about this grill. We love it and use it daily. We've been able to expand our menu since we added it to our kitchen.
Very good product, to be honest I had a more expensive one and it works almost the same as this one. I recommend it after 2 months of using, if it can last up to a year for the price I would not hesitate to buy another one of the same. My only complaints would be that it takes a while to heat up to your desired temperature (15-20 min maybe a bit more) other than that I have it on all day and works fine.
I love this panini press!! It keeps up with my busy business and cooks evenly and perfectly. I went for the smooth too and bottom plates because grill marks are over rated and harder to keep the grill clean. I make perfect sandwiches every time!
Love the Avantco press works great for my Cuban sandwiches can put 4 at a time and keeps its temperature all day, cleans easy perfect for toasting bread.
This is a great working panini sandwich grill. The price is fantastic compared to the other brands and other merchants. We run this machine from morning till night and has worked wonderfully.
This is my first Panini grill and have to say it gets small jobs done fast! The flat top can be used as a mini griddle and is easy to clean
Heats up fast and gets hot. The only complaint I have is upon arrival there was a noticeable spot on the cast iron bottom griddle and upon seasoning it looks well worn now. Seems to get hotter in that spot.
Great panini press, we use this one all the time and haven't had any issues. Relatively easy to clean (although I will say its not super easy to get the back edge). Makes our paninis nice and crispy.
