Tefal OptiGrill

Product information

The Tefal OptiGrill provides superb grilling results for cooking rare to well-done restaurant quality meat at home.

Judging precisely when a steak is cooked enough is a tricky culinary skill to master. But now you can enjoy a perfectly cooked sirloin, fillet or rump steak every time thanks to Tefal’s intelligent new OptiGrill.

Using the Tefal OptiGrill is like having a professional grill chef at home. Meat is cooked to your personal preference each time, whether rare, medium or well-done – removing any worries about over or under-cooking. There’s no more need to keep opening the grill to check whether your food is done and no more cutting into the steak to see what colour it is.

No matter if you are rustling up steaks for the whole family or just for you, the Tefal OptiGrill is the first appliance to automatically measure the thickness of the meat and adjust cooking time to suit. Its patent pending technology even detects how many items are on the grill and adapts the temperature and grilling cycle accordingly.

Uniquely, a clear colour-changing LED display reveals how your steaks or chops are cooking, allowing you to see exactly when they are done. If the light is yellow, the steak is still rare, as it moves into orange the steak is medium, when the light turns red the meat is well done. Plus, the Tefal OptiGrill will beep at each stage of the cooking process to inform you that your meat is rare, medium or well done.

To ensure a succulent result the Tefal OptiGrill sears at high temperatures locking in flavour and juices, and leaves the meat with appetising grill pan markings. The Tefal OptiGrill cooks healthily, with no oil necessary, making it perfect for family cooking.

Not just for steaks, there are six automatic programmes with dedicated cooking cycles for different ingredients with burgers, chicken, bacon, sausage, meat, fish and a manual option all included.

The design is contemporary in style with a brushed stainless steel finish, a strong heavy- duty handle and an impressive 600cm² of cooking surface with a non-stick coating for up to four pieces of steak. It packs a powerful punch at 2000 watts and to make life easy, the extra large juice tray and cooking plates are dishwasher safe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by A good addition to my kitchen After nearly a year of thinking about this appliance (mainly because of the price) a friend of mine bought one and told me how usefull it was. I looked allover the nett and decided to by it from John Lewis because of the after sales service and because of the extended guarantee included in the price 02 February 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Grill, but A great product - it was an Xmas present from my wife. The first one worked perfectly for a few goes then the dreaded manual fault appeared, so it was returned and replaced. So far the replacement is working perfectly and does steak, fish etc. fantastically. A some hints if the "manual mode" fault appears: - Switch it off - Ensure the upper plate is inserted correctly after cleaning. - Open the lid fully and when it is shut press down firmly before re- starting the preheating cycle. If it locks onto a programme when it is preheating it should have latched in OK, if it does not then it will probably not accept the programme when it is hot. If all else fails you may have to get a replacement!! 19 January 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by So wanted to give it 5* Couldn't wait to get this unpacked & in use. The 1st 2 weeks it was brilliant, definitely the best grill I had bought. Then disaster struck, & it would no longer programme, reverting to manual each time I switched it on - so unfortunately it has to go back for an exchange. Hoping the next one lasts longer 07 January 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Tefal optigrill - cooking results great but after 1 successful try now goes to manual mode I will have to return under warranty as keeps going into manual mode. I have seen this problem all over the internet. There doesn't seem to be a fix.so I will ask for replacement and hope ok. 07 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use Great product that is really easy to use. Simple programmes giving good results. Love it. 12 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great grill Had this grill for almost 12 months now, but have only recently started cooking fish & steak on it with great results. I have just read other reviews about the grill automatically going to Manual setting, this happened to me but I discovered this happens if food is placed on the grill before the heating up process has finished. It is not a fault. The removable plates are great for cleaning and I would buy one of these grills again. 03 December 2015
