The T fal optigrill plus is a multifunction device that is very practical for daily use like toasted sandwiches, crunchies, cooking meats… TFal Indoor Grills review– we reviewed it to present you everything about its characteristics, advantages and disadvantages.
Appreance of the T-Fal GC7 Optigrill – TFal Indoor Grills
What is very appreciable in this model of the grill is its compactness. With dimensions of 14 x 13 x 6 inches, it is an appliance that can find its place anywhere in a kitchen. In our opinion, T Fal Optigrill Models fall in the top category because its multifunction aspect makes it useful every day. Especially since it is equipped with a ready and preheat indicator to make the cooking process easier. If you need to move it, it is its weight with its 5.26 kg. But difficult to be lighter on this kind of device.
T Fal Optigrill – Indoor Electric Grill Plates
The appliance is delivered with a single set of grill plates. This allows not to be cluttered while leaving the possibility of making a large number of preparations. They have a non-stick coating, essential on this type of appliance intended for grilling so that they do not stick. Fortunately, T-fal has thought of everything and while the price is frankly affordable, there has been no compromise on basic functionality.
Dimension Of T Fal Optigrill Plus
Even though it does not take up too much space, the T fal optigrill plus has large plates (25.1 x 31.8 cm) which offer a nice cooking surface of up to 600cm². It is, therefore possible to make large croques or grill beautiful pieces of meat.
Is the T Fal Electric Grill a multifunction grill?
The key-words of this device are versatility and performance. Firstly because you will be able to achieve an impressive number of things, secondly, because it heats up very quickly thanks to its power of 1800 Watts. A few minutes are enough to toast a croque and even to cook a slice of meat (this time can obviously vary according to the desired cooking).
TFal indoor grills are efficient indoor electric grill?
In order to manage the cooking properly, the appliance is equipped with 6 automatic cooking programs. You can cook Fish, Poultry, Sausage, Sandwich, Burger and Red Meat. This way, you can be sure to cook your ingredients at the ideal temperature.
An indicator light indicates when the T Fal Electric Grill is hot enough according to the setting chosen to start cooking. The auto sensor cooking technology cooks as per the thickness of the food, so you don’t have to worry about well-cooked food.
In addition, this T Fal Optigrill Plus has two different cooking modes:
- The first “manual” mode allows you to cook the preparations between the two plates. It is therefore, a real electric grill machine that allows you to cook anything. Sandwiches will be toasted on both sides without having to turn them.
- The second “frozen” mode allows you to grill your pieces of meat, vegetables or fish direct from frozen to cook.
You can even use the “grill and panini” mode for your meats and fish and not have to turn them during cooking. It’s a great time saver because you can do other things during this time. In either case, it’s up to you to choose how you prefer to cook your preparations!
A compact device, easy to use and maintain (Tfal Indoor Grills Review)
What surprises with this electric grill is its ease of use. It is possible to fully master the appliance in just a few minutes and to carry out all kinds of cooking without any difficulty. Everything is intuitive, like switching from grill mode to barbecue mode.
The same goes for adjusting the thermostat, which is child’s play since a small diagram indicates in which position to put it according to the food to be cooked.
That’s what we like with the T Fal Electric Grill. Versatile does not mean complicated and that is the risk with certain devices which have options more elaborate than the others and which are ultimately not very useful. Here, this grill gets down to the basics and is more than enough for most uses.
Cleaning Your Tfal Indoor Grills- T Fal Optigrill Plus Review
When it comes to cleaning, T Fal Electric Grill has once again thought of everything and it turns out to be very simple. First, because the plates are removable and compatible with the dishwasher. This allows you to do without being discouraged by cleaning preparations that are very dirty (grilled meats are a good example).
Then, the plates obviously have a good quality non-stick coating which makes maintenance even easier.
In addition, the cooking juices and fats do not remain on the hotplates but go directly into a drip tray because they are slightly inclined. It’s smart and very effective. Best of all, it’s also dishwasher-safe, to our delight!
