automatically . The cooking process can be monitored thanks to the indicator light: Blue then green at the start of cooking, then yellow when the food is rare, orange when it is medium and red if you like your food well done:
- Adjusts to your needs, lift up the lid to pick up your meat when it's ready and leave the rest to carry on cooking.
- 6 cooking programs (Red meat, Burger, Poultry, Sandwich, Sausage, Fish) to automatically adapt the
temperature to each type of food and cook it perfectly as required.

No. Once the first batch has finished open the grill fully and remove the food. Close the grill and press OK. You do not have to switch off the grill first. When the lights flash again, choose the mode that you want. The preheating phase should be a lot quicker than the first time as the plates will already be hot.
