OptiGrill for optimal cooking!

Meet OptiGrill, our ultimate innovation. Its "Automatic Sensor Cooking" technology immediately detects the number of items placed on the grill and their thickness, and adjusts the temperature and cooking time automatically.  An indicator light allows you to monitor your cooking directly: 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.

OptiGrill™ by Tefal®, for successful grilling all year round to satisfy all your friends and family every time!
  • 6 cooking programmes (red meat, poultry, fish, sausages, hamburgers and sandwiches/panini or bacon) to automatically adapt the temperature to each type of food and cook it perfectly.
  • 2 cooking modes: one for frozen food, plus a manual mode that lets you cook anything the way you want.
  • 600cm2 cooking surface (capacity 2 to 4 people), with non-stick die-cast aluminium plates.
  • Large juice tray and 7° angled plates to ensure the cooking juices run off.

Frequent questions
No as the cooking sensors are not active in Manual Mode.
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. When the Optigrill beeps to say it is ready, open the grill again and put the second batch of food on to the plates and continue as normal.
