Electrolux Professional’s HSG Panini Grill has won a gold award at the first Lunch! 2010 Innovation Challenge, which identifies cutting-edge innovations in the food-to-go sector.

The grill is up to six times faster than a standard sandwich grill, enabling caterers to sell a sandwich that stays "warm-to-the-last-bite" in less than a minute, with a non-stick top plate, creating traditional grill marks.

Innovative features include: three heating modes, contact heating plates, infrared radiation to deliver crispness, automatic holding and opening once the cooking phase is complete, programmable electronic control and an energy-saving mode.
