The Commercial Panini Grill Press also known as a Sandwich Grill Press is unique in that the Panini Press has a lower and upper heated platen or grill surface that cooks both sides at one time. Panini presses can have numerous gill surface options. The grill can be a grooved or flat surface in both top and bottom platen surfaces or a combination thereof. Grooved surfaces score the bread with charred marks giving the sandwich added eye appeal and more of a crunchy surface that most people desire.
