Unit is well built of quality materials. Thermostat seems to be off - 375 degrees won't fry bacon, have to turn up to 420 degrees. Heat distribution is not even on griddle surface. Center is hot with edges a lot cooler. A strip of bacon laid across the center will burn in the middle and remain uncooked on the ends. Disappointed. Have only used twice. Will try preheating a longer time - perhaps the temperature on the heavy cast iron griddle plate will even out. Have had better performance with $39.00 consumer griddles. Cast iron griddle plate did season nicely and seems to be fairly nonstick.
This is a quality product and will always consider this brand when looking for kitchen equipment. I am very pleased with the grilled sandwiches I serve in my cafe thanks to the Majestic Panini Grill
I bought a month ago and the support of your team helped me make the right choise of oven for my country, since I live in Colombia S.A. Thanks, Gigliola PÃ¡ez/ Javier
I have the GES20, and after making waffles for about 30 minutes (NOTE: not hours on end in a restaurant setting), I did not notice significant heat loss. It takes about 20-30 minutes to warm (I'm using it at 400F).Â For easiest cleaning, buy a small, hand-held grill brush and use LOTS of non-stick spray. The drip tray does alleviate some of the mess.Â The base of the unit does not get very not, and can be moved around on a prep surface with bare hands. The large rubber feat make it easy to move.Â
Bought this with two main considerations: size and versatility. I own a small cafe where an open flame is not allowed, so I realized the oven would have to do practically everything! And it does!
