A sandwich grill consists of a heated metal plate with a hinged top, between which food is placed and grilled. The top closes down to heat the food evenly top-to-bottom. Sandwich grills are temperature adjustable depending on the heat you need. They are made of either aluminum or iron. Some have self-timers that will shut the machine off after a set amount of time.

Different Types of Grills

The two main types of sandwich grill are the flat grill and Panini grill. The flat grill is appropriate for cooking many foods, from chicken and burgers to quesadillas and burritos. The Panini grill can be used similarly; however, Panini grills are grooved to add sear marks to any grilled foods. The marks replicate the look of an item grilled on the barbecue, except in half the time.

Sandwich grills vary in size, depending on your concession needs. Some grills are outfitted with self-timers that either simply ding when time is done, or automatically shut off the machine. Because these grills are small, it doesn't take long for them to reheat to proper temperature.

Sandwich grills can be found in many cooking supply stores. If you are looking for commercial-grade grills, it's best to contact companies that specialize in concession equipment. These companies are most knowledgeable and can answer any questions you may have about specifications and capacity.
