Im in the process of opening up a take away panini business and have just bought a commercial grade panini press. The problem is the sandwich/panini's take a very long time to cook. There taking 4 to 6 minutes to have heated and melted the cheese and toppings sufficiently. I have conducted tests on a few different models and there was no difference in the timing. My business is take away. So the sandwiches need to be cooked within 3 minutes max.
I have a george foreman at home and this will cook the exact same sandwiches in 2 minutes! I really dont know what to do, I ve spent a lot of money on this machine and now since it has been used it is second hand.
I am very interested to hear from anybody that has worked with these wretched machines in a professional capacity and could provide some much needed insight.
At this stage I am considering bringing the old georgie foreman into work with me!
Thanks in advance.
