With the end of summer also comes the end of outside grilling for us. Although I know there are people who venture out into the cold, rainy and most of the time snowy weather to continue grilling on an outside grill, we normally close ours up until next spring. So you can imagine my surprise when I heard about a new grilling product by T-fal called the OptiGrill. Not only does it give you the ability to grill inside, but it will cook your meat to your desired doneness-level.
The T-fal OptiGrill is the first and only indoor grill with Precision Grilling Technology, which will detect the quantity, temperature, and thickness of your items and alert you when it is at each cooking stage (rare,medium well done, etc.) So there is no more need to cut into your steak or meats to check if they are done – with OptiGrill you know it will be grilled exactly to your preference.
Just select one of the preset cooking programs and start grilling:
–Manual – perfect for vegetables
Plus, you can throw on frozen meat and it will defrost and then cook it.
It’s easy to use. You plug it in, hit the power button, select which type of meat you’re cooking and then hit the start button. It will preheat the grills for you and beep when it’s ready for you to throw the meat on. If you’re cooking steak, it’ll beep when it’s reaches each stage (medium rare, medium, medium well and well done). Perfect for when I’m cooking steak for the family and everyone likes it done at different stages.
The plates are tilted so that fat and grease can flow down and be caught in the basin. Great for healthy eating! Plus, the plates are dishwasher safe, which makes for easy clean up.
When the grill beeps ready, throw on your meat
The tray catches any drippings
Chicken is done
I made two batches of chicken. The first batch came out lighter than the second batch. The second batch was darker because of the drippings from the first batch cooking on the chicken. I actually preferred the look of the second batch more but both tasted amazing.
I can’t wait to cook steak this week on it. I loved how easy it was to clean up. I threw the plates into the dishwasher.
A wonderful recipe book comes with the grill, and more information will be found on the website www.getoptigrill.com.
