Hendi has introduced a Panini Contact Grill, suitable for the countertop or back bar area in cafes, bars, coffee shops and anywhere wanting to serve up a quick snack in limited space.
The compact unit is available with either flat or ribbed cast iron plates and measures 430mm (w) x 370mm (d).
However, inside the wipe-clean stainless steel casing the grill offers 340mm (w) x 230mm (d) cooking area for paninis or other grilled sandwich items, whilst the pull-down lid is said to ensure even top and bottom cooking.
An adjustable thermostat can be turned up to 300°C using a knob on the front panel, which also houses an indicator light.
The integral fat collection tray and backsplash, plus a complementary wire brush, should make for easy cleaning after use. Both the ribbed and flat units have a list price of £198.69 + VAT.
