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

Tefal OptiGrill 5 5 17 17
Best grilling machine ever Stress free cooking! It beeps at different stages of cooking so you can get on with whatever your doing elsewhere without the worry of undercooking or burning. Plates come off very easily for washing but if you wipe them with kitchen roll first there's less to wash anyway. Bought it for my caravan but love it so much I'm going to get one for home as well. 23 September 2014
Tefal optigrill Easy to use cooks steaks to desired degree A must have for Steak lovers and grillers I rate this item 10/10 26 August 2014
An indispensable addition to the kitchen cooking arsenal A really useful kitchen accessory and not just another gadget to gather dust. In use daily and intuitively easy to operate and clean. The grill plates are easily detached after cooking and can be washed easily in soapy water or in the dishwasher. We have used it to cook steaks, Swordfish & Tuna, as well as bacon and sausages to perfection, the micro-processor controlled colour-coding, delivering spot-on cooking times. Last night we put on Tuna steaks first, then wiped down the plates for a steak without any residue or taste/smell from the fish. The tray collects any drained fat and the whole process is very fast and efficient, leaving your food well presented with those hallmark bars across the surface. A thoroughly well designed and engineered product at a great price with John Lewis. Highly recommended. 21 August 2014
Brilliant! OMG never thought I'd be raving about a grill but this thing is amazing! So far I've cooked bacon, steak, sausages and chicken/veg kebab skewers all to perfection. The cooking programmes are very accurate so don't be tempted to leave meat on for longer. Plates remove easy and fit straight in the dishwasher. Definitely good value for money. 16 August 2014
Better than the george foreman Had a george foreman grill previously which was hard to clean,this one take plates off and remove the drip tray and stick them in dish washer,cooks food brillantly and is simple to use,a great piece of kit,just cooked a chicken breast for dinner done to perfection. 09 July 2014
So versatile & easy to clean!!! I can't rave about this product enough! So far I have cooked lots of breakfast items such as Lorne sausage & bacon which has been beyond excellent every time. I have also cooked and I quote my father In law "the most perfectly cooked steak I have ever had!" Way to impress my in-laws! Very useful piece of kitchen equipment whilst I was without oven or hob facilities during my recent kitchen refurbishment...my workers were kept very happy and mighty impressed with the well cooked breakfast rolls. I must also add that the cleaning routine is fantastic compared to my old smaller health style grill, instead of spending ages rubbing it down I simply wipe any excess fat from the tray and then pop both grill plates and the tray into the dishwasher...job done! This is 2014 after all so as far as I'm concerned dishwasher compatability is a must with kitchen equipment. Well done tefal! A very happy purchaser indeed. 08 July 2014
Optigrill The product is great with all the variations to cook different food items just to your taste., plus the cleaning process is easy. Great product at very competitive price. 08 July 2014
Well worth every penny! Quite simply the best grill I've ever used, it's so simple to setup and get going and cooks everything we have tried perfectly! Steaks, Burgers, Chicken and Sausages have all been cooked on this grill and every single one has come out just how you want it. Cleaning the plates and drip tray is very easy and being able to remove them helps a lot. Everything in the last week has been cooked on this (where possible# and I have yet to be disappointed! It's also very quick to get going, a few minutes to heat up and a tone to let you know it's ready. My only quibble, the defrost #cook from frozen?# option is a bit...naff...but most of the items I plan to cook on this will either be fresh or already defrosted, I won’t be knocking off a star for this as the grill overall still exceeds my expectations! I recommended this to a "hard to please" friend, their response after using this... "Annoyingly good!!" #He was expecting it to let him down and it failed to fail...) JUST BUY IT! 03 June 2014
