Say goodbye to under or overcooked meat!

For stress-free grilling, look no further than the Tefal OptiGrill+ intelligent health grill. Only OptiGrill has a built-in automatic thickness sensor that tailors the grill time to the thickness of your food for guaranteed grilling success. Plus, it’s the only health grill brand with a coloured grilling indicator to help you keep track of cooking progress. This changes colour and beeps at each cooking stage, so you can remove food when it’s cooked exactly how you like it. No guesswork and no watching over the grill. Six automatic programs make it easy to grill any type of food to perfection. Whether it’s burgers for an indoor barbecue, grilled chicken after the gym or seared steaks for a dinner party, OptiGrill+ does it all. You can also set your own temperature for even more grilling possibilities. Dinner in a hurry, but you forgot to thaw the meat? OptiGrill+ can do that for you before it gets on with the cooking. It also has a floating lid that adapts to fit everything from the thinnest bacon to the thickest sandwich. The non-stick plates have space for up to six portions and they’re sloped, so any excess fat lands in the drip tray instead of your meal.
