Starting with the L range – these machines use a cast iron construction for the elements – which means you’ll need to ‘season’ them with oil before you use them
There are four machines in the range – the LCG which is a small machine with smooth top and bottom plates.
The LCG2 is a double width machine – with two top plates – with smooth top and bottom plates. The LRG is a single machine with a ribbed top plate and a smooth bottom plates.
The LRG2 is a double grill with a ribbed top and smooth bottom.
These machines are very simple – with a temperature gauge – and that’s all – to control them!
The GG range are all single width machines – they use aluminium plates rather than cast iron, which means they heat up quicker and have a more even temperature than cast iron.
They are made to last, with hard wearing fittings and a timer to make sure the element is only on when you need it.
The GG1 has flat plates, the GG1P (the P stands for panini) has ribbed top and bottom plates and the GG1R has ribbed top plates and smooth bottom plates.
These are very easy to use machines – the GG range are harder wearing, but the double plate designs are very versatile and allow you to cook on one plate whilst serving for another, so the model you choose will be dictated by the needs of your business.
These are great machines that are a staple of cafes all over the country, and you can see why – well made and reasonably priced, there’s little to complain about!
