Hi! I currently operate a small restaurant where we have a pretty huge gas griddle - that at most times is underutilized. We're thinking of using the same griddle to cook Paninis, so that we don't have to pay additional fees for buying the panini machine and don't incur the additional cost in running the machine.
I was wondering if i can use the heat from the Gas griddle to cook the Paninis? I guess if there's a tool, that has two metal plates on either side - i can place the Sand which inside it, clamp it and place it on the griddle - using the heat transfer to heat my sandwich? Do you think this could work? Has anyone tried this before.
