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.
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.
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.
