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 4.8 out of 5 by 42 reviewers.
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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for a part time cook Takes the guess work out of frying the steaks and also does the potatoes, it seems to know the difference between thick and thin. A versatile piece of kit for the kitchen, so far turning out great food. 01 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best kitchen appliance ever bought What a great and inotive product and so simple to use that even a cooking novice like me can now master meat and fish cooked to perfection 17 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing This grill is a really useful product! Doing such an amazing work,so easy to use and clean.Food is exactly ready when the display shows you.Absolutely best in comparison with everything what I had before! 03 November 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by disappointing Bought this after paying to have our gas cooker cleaned and my wife said"no more grilling bacon".I read some of the online reviews and comparing different makes I settled for the tefal. Twice I was able to use the automatic mode. Now it just goes to manual. Having again looked online and read more reviews this seems to be a common fault. I shall be returning mine for a refund, and to find an alternative. 01 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gr8 Purchase Cooks steak to perfection, very pleased with purchase. Gr8 price and loving the 2 year guarantee which convinced us to purchase from John Lewis. 29 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect I wanted a grill that could do basically anything and this does. We have done chicken, burgers, sausages and even paninis and toasted sandwiches on it. It is perfect for the whole family. It is easy to clean and would definitely recommend. 01 September 2015
