Advantages of a Cast Iron Sandwich Press

Make paninis and other hot sandwiches with a cast iron sandwich press. Williams Sonoma has several sandwich presses from which to choose, from top brands such as Staub and Le Creuset. There are also sets that include a press and cast iron pan.

Choosing a Cast Iron Sandwich Press

When shopping for a sandwich press, you'll find several high-quality options. There's the Le Creuset Signature grill pan and press, which comes with a ridged, nonstick grill pan. Both pieces are crafted from cast iron but require no seasoning, so they're ready to use right away. The pieces in this set are dishwasher-safe and come in several colors.

Another option is the Staub cast iron pan and press. Like the Le Creuset pan, this pan has a ridged texture that creates grill marks on your food. The nonstick surface of this pan is infused with quartz for durability and optimum browning. The enameled exterior of the pan has the appearance of fine ceramics and comes in colors such as sapphire blue, grenadine, basil and graphite.

If you're looking for a sandwich press that can be used with your outdoor grill, consider the cast iron grill press. It's crafted from heavyweight, pre-seasoned cast iron in a crosshatch pattern for restaurant-quality results. The large handle is comfortable to grip and lets you firmly press everything from grilled sandwiches to burgers and steaks.

These cast iron presses are easy to clean and maintain. When you need to clean them, hand wash in hot water and dry thoroughly with a soft cloth. A layer of vegetable oil can be applied on a periodic basis to keep the cast iron in top condition.

Sandwich Plates and Accessories

When shopping for a sandwich press, you might also want to browse the selection of sandwich plates at Williams Sonoma. There are dinner plates that can accommodate oversized sandwiches, as well as smaller salad plates that work well for petite sandwiches. Choose from porcelain, stoneware and melamine plates in a wide variety of colors and patterns. There's also an array of cloth napkins that make even the most casual meal an elegant affair.

Explore the cast iron sandwich press selection at Williams Sonoma for an array of durable, stylish pans and presses. If you want pots and pans that coordinate with your sandwich press, there are Le Creuset and Staub cookware sets in colors to match.
