Pannini Grill Cleaning

How can you clean a grill that has no removable parts and, therefore, cannot be immersed in water?

A wood or plastic spoon handle may fit the grooves. The corner of a sponge could work as well.

Start with the grill HOT! and use a very wet cloth or sponge apply water to the grill. The heat will 'deglaze' the griddle and you can wipe it clean.

Okay, so Andy do you mean specifically to heat the grill and then unplug it first before wiping w/very damp cloth?

Basically just like Andy M. and yes, works best when still hot. I clean with paper towels (dampen the towels at one end but have a barrier between the wet part and your hand, which, for me is just more paper towels but dry). I then just brush down the grooves, then out the spout. A sponge works well too.

You can heat the grill again or just clean right after you are done cooking whatever it is you have cooked. Unplug - yes.
