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.

Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 57 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by a useful addition to the kitchen I use this grill several times a week and find it quick and easy to use. It took a while to adjust the perfect cooking time, especially for salmon steaks which tend to get a bit dry if you are not careful. Cleaning is effortless if done soon after cooking is finished. I am happy with the purchase and would recommend it. 26 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great little machine It's good looking, compact and does exactly what it says 'on the tin'! 12 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by It doesn't need cupboard space it is always in use! Checked out various electric grills, I read generally that the Tefal OptiGrill was a good choice, a bit more expensive than others, but worth it. I am happy to say that it has been a brilliant choice, probably used at least 4 times a week, less mess, easy to clean, does burgers fabulously, no smog filled kitchen, worth the extra it costs. 12 April 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by A big disappointment Very disappointed. Despite two attempts using prime steaks, the result was dry, bland, grey steaks with much of the goodness and taste sucked out of them. Given the cost and because it is of no use to me, I shall be sending it back. 10 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by First Class The great plus with this unit is the removable plates, into the washing up, then back in place. No grease as it drains off into the tray. One slight drawback, you cannot cook a chop with bones. It keeps you informed as it changes from rare to medium etc. by beeping. I recommend it. 06 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great grill Exactly what you need from a healthy grill. Perfect everytime 15 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Teal Optigrill Great product! Takes a while to warm up but then perfect steaks 08 March 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by sensor has failed Had my first one of these last April. The sensor failed so I got a replacement in May. Unfortunately, this one has now failed the same way, so it's back to John Lewis. The grill is big and bulky and while it's great for steak, chops etc, it squashes sausages, waffles and smaller items. This means that it has limited use and for a smaller person its cumbersome. 15 February 2016
