Operation :

  2. Use non-stick spray on the surface of the plate.
  3. Use the handle to raise and lower the top of the Panini/Sandwich Grill to avoid injury.
  4. The grill preheats in 2-3 minutes. To preheat, simply set the desired cooking temperature and close the top.
  5. Sandwiches will take between 2-5 minutes to heat through. The cooking time depends on the bread used and the ingredients on the sandwich.
  6. Most of your sandwiches should be grilled at temperatures between 480°F – 540°F.
  7. Use light pressure when lowering the top grill plate to assure a perfectly cooked sandwich. Excessive pressure will not speed up the cooking process and product quality may be compromised.
