Review: Tefal OptiGrill

Review: Tefal OptiGrill
So my little kitchen fairy Lee has been up to her shenanigans again. A few weeks ago, I was sent a Tefal OptiGrill to review. It was coveted by my tame domestic goddess... So off she trot with a bag full of steak and bangers, and put the grill through its paces.

Here's what she thought.

So the Tefal OptiGrill, first things first (and I'm only saying what you're all thinking) it looks like it could be used to cook dinner for the Stormtroopers! It's super modern looking, with an exciting and easy to use control panel. 

It's has dedicated programmes for burgers, poultry, bacon, sausages, red meat and fish. These options are also suitable for cooking other things, including pork, lamb, frozen chicken nuggets, chicken breast and vegetables. There is also a manual option for panini and toastie making.

I was very excited to try this as I have never been able to cook a decent steak without supervision, and so off I went in my attempt to cook my boyfriend a nice steak for the first time ever! Once you have chosen the programme there is a period of pre-heating and then the grill beeps to let you know it's ready. When you close the lid after placing the meat on the plate the grill measures the thickness and cooks it accordingly, the light panel indicating when the meat is rare/medium rare etc. 

We have made steak twice on this now and I would say although it's a great indication of where the cooking is up to you still need to check it as first time the steak was slightly over what I wanted (but still very good). I have also cooked sausages on it which were perfect.

Overall the OptiGrill is easy to use and attractive. It is quite a big piece of equipment though so required a little worktop rearranging. The plates and drip tray come away easily and clean up a treat. I am excited about trying more foods on it!

The RRP for the Tefal OptiGrill is £149.99.
