Automatic sensor cooking and a cooking level indicator for perfect grilling results

Meet OptiGrill+ XL, Tefal’s ultimate innovation in healthy cooking. Like OptiGrill+, OptiGrill XL has Automatic Sensor Cooking technology that identifies the thickness of your meat and adjusts the cooking time and temperature accordingly. Under and overcooked meat is a thing of the past with the OptiGrill XL, thanks to a colour-coded cooking level indicator that works with the sensor to monitor cooking progress and alerts you when your meat is rare, medium or well-done. As well as the six automatic cooking programmes found on OptiGrill+ (Red Meat, Burger*, Poultry**, Bacon, Sausage and Fish), OptiGrill XL has three additional cooking programmes (Sandwich, Seafood and Pork) for endless grilling options. As well as the additional programmes, OptiGrill XL has an 800cm₂ cooking surface (33% more grilling space) - enough to feed six to eight people! There is even a convenient frozen food mode for when time is of the essence, allowing you to defrost food before cooking. The stainless-steel design of the Tefal OptiGrill XL is both stylish and functional. The exterior can be wiped clean, while the high-performance die-cast aluminium plates and drip tray can be loaded into the dishwasher for ease of cleaning. Mealtimes have never been so delicious or easy!

*Do not cook chicken breasts from frozen. Always thaw completely first.
**We advise to cook burgers to well-done for food safety reasons. If you choose to serve rare or medium burgers, there is a risk of bacteria present.

Frequent questions
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.
There are 4 temperature levels, as shown by the colour indicator:
Green: 110°C (230°F to 257°F)
Yellow: 190°C (356°F to 383°F)
Orange: 225°C (428°F to 455°F)
Red: 270°C (518°F to 545°F)
