Commercial Panini Presses Offer Two-Sided Cooking

Commercial panini presses are small but versatile members of the commercial grills family. They are compact electric appliances with two cooking surfaces that occupy almost no space on your countertop. They may be named as commercial sandwich presses, commercial panini grills, commercial sandwich grills, or sandwich panini grills. Just as names, they come in many plate configurations and sizes. Plus, they can cook a wide range of pressed sandwiches and grill proteins, enriching your menu. 

Standard Features Of Commercial Panini Presses

Plate Configuration: Commercial panini presses have two cooking surfaces: the bottom plate where you place the products and the top grill lid used for pressing. This construction removes the need to flip the foods you grill. Both plates can be grooved, smooth, or one can be grooved and the other smooth. Grooved plates work like standard grills and create attractive sear marks, so many diners fall for paninis or other pressed sandwiches with grill lines. Flat plates are like typical griddles and are ideal for eggs, pancakes, quesadillas, or French toast.

Plate Construction: Commercial panini presses can have aluminum, cast-iron, or ceramic/glass plates. Cast-iron is almost the standard and more common as it can withstand heavy use for many years. It takes longer to heat up and recover but has unmatched heat retention. Therefore, cast-iron plates are preferable for continuous production. Aluminum is a cheaper alternative. It stands out for its quick heat-up and recovery times, so you can turn it off when not in use. Ceramic/glass plates combine the benefits of the two. They have as fast preheat and cook times as aluminum and as good heat retention as cast iron.

Top Plate: The number and design of the top plate vary in different commercial panini presses. Panini grills with a single top plate are smaller. They can cook only one item at a time. Commercial sandwich presses with dual top plates cover a larger counter space but are more versatile. You can grill different products with different cook time settings. They also allow for more flexibility in plate configuration. The design of the lid holding the top plate can make a difference, too. For instance, Waring panini presses have hinged, auto-balancing top plates. These floating lids are adjustable to the thickness of the sandwich.

Temperature Controls: Commercial panini presses are very simple to use, with an on/off button and an adjustable thermostat for temperature settings. Thermostat controls can be manual with a turn knob or electronic with a digital display. Electronic controls have a countdown timer and buzzer to signal that grilling is finished, ensuring that products are never burned or undercooked. Also, you can walk away from your sandwich press and deal with other tasks or customers.

  

Commercial panini presses can appeal to diners' ears with the sizzling sound they make and eyes with their sleek appearance. Customers will also be delighted with the seared proteins and grilled sandwiches they deliver.
