Pantheon has introduced CCG Grills, a new range of four ceramic contact grills that it claims deliver superior results and a significant energy saving.
The Bolton-based company says that because ceramic glass is not porous like the cast iron more commonly used for contact grills, it will not absorb or transfer flavours or smells.
Heat-up time varies from just two to five minutes because as soon as the elements are hot, heat transference through the glass is instant.
A further important advantage, it says, is that food doesn’t stick and surfaces can simply be wiped down between use.
Pantheon’s ceramic contact grills are ideal for distributors serving operations that specialise in paninis and sandwiches, but are also ideal for cooking vegetables, meat and fish.
The grills come in single and double options, both with a choice of smooth and ribbed tops. List prices start at £719 for the single, smooth top model.
