Grill/Panini Press


grillSmall kitchen appliances can take up a lot of valuable space in your kitchen. So choose ones that have more than one function.

The new grill & panini press machines are great at doing double duty – even triple duty if you have the plate to make waffles!

Aside from grill-pressed sandwiches, these machines can cook burgers, steaks, and even make waffle cones*.

These multi-use griddles can function as a:

  1. contact grill
  2. panini press
  3. full grill
  4. full griddle
  5. half grill/half griddle

What to look for when buying 

  • To get the most use out of your machine, ensure it has an adjustable top plate with a floating hinge allowing it to adjust to various food thicknesses.
  • Removable/interchangeable grilling plates – ribbed, smooth, waffle.
  • Has a release to open the grill out completely flat (to use as a griddle or indoor grill). Then you can use it to make pancakes, French toast using the smooth plate, or grill shishkabobs or fish with the ribbed plate.
  • To be able to use it for a variety of foods, ensure it has an adjustable dial heat control.

WaffleCones1*To make waffle cones, use the ribbed plate NOT a waffle plate – the depth of the depressions are too large in the waffle plate and you’ll end up with waffle cones that are too thick and doughy.
