What parent testers had to say:
Have you ever wished you could BBQ ALL year long? In Canada unfortunately, it is tough to get that BBQ working through the winter months, unless you are like me and demand your husband stands in the freezing cold garage to do it. WELL...I have a secret!! T-fal has come up with this perfect little piece of technology known as the OptiGrill and as made my life (and my husbands) a whole lot better! I have been using this grill for about 1 week now and all I can say is, wow! It is sleek, well manufactured, strong and a great addition to any kitchen. We practically make everything on it and every time our meat, bread, fish, and veggies come out PERFECT! Our true test was making steak, because as everyone knows that is the most challenging thing to do right? Well, we tried all three settings (rare, med rare, and well done) and all 3 were cooked to perfection in a snap!! I also love how the built-in sensors are able to detect the thickness of your food so it never burns or over-cooks! Every mother needs one of these in their kitchen! We use ours breakfast, noon and evening and are amazed every time! My most favorite feature though would have to be the little beep the OptiGrill gives off when it has reached each desired temperature. That way I can walk away from the grill and prepare other dishes, or wash the dishes and still receive an alert when the next temperature is reached. No more slaving over a hot BBQ that's for sure! We will definitely be using this all winter long, and right through the rest of the seasons that's for sure! This grill has it all!
We have been using the OptiGrill for the past few weeks and we have enjoyed it. It was convenient and easy to use. The instructions, as well as the coloured pictures on the buttons were helpful. The food cooked well and quick. We used it for salmon, chicken and grilled vegetables. The chicken breasts were even frozen. The defrost feature was a life saver. I know we will be using it this winter to continue to grill our food. Not only was the food I cooked tasty it was healthy too.
Perfect for those who want the awesome grilled taste without having to go out during the wet and rainy weather to cook. I love that it is literally foolproof and provides consistent results with every single thing that we grilled - even fresh veggies and fish and steak from frozen!
The T-Fal Optigrill is the new, one of a kind way to grill indoors. The innovative Optigrill features a cooking sensor that guarantees a perfectly cooked meal every time. The built-in sensor automatically adapts to the thickness of your food and delivers the perfect ‘doneness’ from rare to well doe for 6 different programs: burgers, poultry, sandwiches, sausage, red meat and fish. The manual cooking function is perfect for vegetables or personal recipes and the defrost setting evenly thaws all types of frozen dishes. The Optigrill will get a perfectly cooked meal with every use so you will never have to slave over the grill -and guess when your food is cooked- again. The T-Fal optigrill features angled plates that allow fat to drip off easily into the dishwasher safe drip tray. The brushed stainless steel exterior is sleek and compact for easy storage and the removable cooking plates are dishwasher safe for easy clean up.
