Contact grill – an ideal cooking device for grilling and heating a variety of dishes

What are contact grills?

Contact grills, also known as panini presses, are kitchen appliances that are created for grilling food quickly and conveniently. They are made up of two hot plates that come together to concurrently cook food on both sides. Many dishes, including burgers, poultry, veggies, and sandwiches, can be prepared using contact grills. They can be used both indoors and outdoors, and are available in a variety of versions and sizes.

They are a popular appliance for home kitchens, as well as in commercial kitchens such as restaurants and cafes. The compact size and ease of use make them a convenient tool for busy cooks looking to prepare quick, tasty meals.

In Kulina, we have carefully chosen a wide selection of durable contact grills from well-known producers like Severin, Tefal, and WMF.

How do I clean a contact grill?

A contact grill can be cleaned by clearing away any extra food particles, washing it down with a moist cloth or sponge, and using a baking soda paste to remove any difficult stains or burnt-on residue.

Also, it's crucial to stay away from abrasive cleansers. If the grill has detachable plates, they should be cleaned separately in a dishwasher or warm, soapy water.

What is the difference between a contact grill and a sandwich taster?

The term "contact grill" refers to a cooking appliance with two hot plates that are hinged together. The plates can be opened and closed like clamshells and are often ridged, which imprints grill marks on food. A contact grill's grill plates are often bigger than the square slots of standard sandwich makers, providing a wider range of cooking options.

A sandwich maker, on the other hand, is a little countertop device that is intended for making square-shaped (or triangle) sandwiches, usually with toast bread. It can be opened and closed like a book thanks to two hinged plates that are typically flat. A broad range of sandwiches, for example, with grilled cheese, ham and cheese, and tuna melt, can be made with a sandwich maker.
