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.

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
OptiGrill - I'm in LOVE I have never been great at judging when a steak is ready - by thumb flesh or scientifically so I am in love with this - Thank you! I have had lots of different grills and hate the 'fat catchers' - this one is great. I have spent pounds on new parts (grill plates) because the food inevitably sticks and without using force cannot clean them - I end up damaging the coating - SO FAR I have been able to just wipe clean with a damp cloth or wet kitchen roll. There is not a setting I haven't used. The only slight draw back I found is that it retains it heat for some time so you have to leave it quite a while before you can put it away - problem solved I have found a permanent location for it! I have shown and told my friends of this product - Well - Medium Well, Medium pleased with my new appliance. 27 May 2014
My New Kitchen Chef!! After reading reviews on the grill decided to give it a go and really glad we did. Easy to use and very good to clean (removable plates).Not the cheapest grill but as the saying goes "you get what you pay for". Well done Tefal. 22 April 2014
Great grill This is a chunky, funky, piece of kit and, joy of joys, easy to clean. I've had a few health grills and none match this, and boy what an eye opener on the amount of fat which runs off the food which can only be a good thing. Still experimenting with this, but what I've cooked so far has been top notch. Food is tasty, succulent and feels much healthier without losing any of the taste and texture that you sometimes do with other virtuous cooking methods. It may seem pricey, but if you add up all the other kitchen kit bought and dumped in despair, I think you'll find it's well worth the money - I certainly won't be consigning this to the back of a dusty cupboard. 22 February 2014
Moderately Well Done! So far I have used the Optigrill to cook Steaks, sausages, burgers, mushrooms and fish. The grill has excelled every time. It cooks equally well from frozen. Everything it cooked was moist, tender and cooked close to perfection. The warning beep when the grill has reached various cooking points of "rare", "medium" and "well done" means you can get on with other work in the kitchen and not ruin the food under the grill. The added bonus of removable cooking plates makes this grill ideal for me. It isn't among the cheapest on the market but the price on JL was equal to the lowest I saw anywhere else with the added bonus of JL service. My children were also impressed with how this grill cooks. I hope to get good use and good food from this grill. 11 February 2014
