Steak Lovers Best Friend
You are an avid steak lover, yet, not that good at grilling steaks? If you worry about ruining meat on the grill and your steaks usually get overcooked or undercooked, the T-Fal OptiGrill is a way out.
Thanks to Precision Grilling technology, it does all of the thinking for you. It has a unique thickness sensor and can adapt the grilling cycle to the thickness of the food you're putting in it. The sensor detects how thick the meat is and estimates the amount of time needed for cooking it. And even if you load frozen meat, the OptiGrill knows that and starts a defrost timer based on the meat's thickness. The sensor and timer are very precise and they can get you very close to where you want your cooked meat to be. After you turn on the unit, the flashing light in its handle glows purple and slowly turns blue. And once the grill reaches the needed temperature, a little beeper alerts you that you can start cooking. As your steak browns, the light first turns yellow and beeps, which means "rare" degree of roasting. If you continue the cooking cycle, the light turns orange and audible signal informs you about "medium". And the orange light is followed by red light and beeping sound, meaning your meat is already "well-done". We would like to emphasize that you can lift the lid anytime without upsetting the sensor.
With a smart electric grill from T-fal, you can roast perfectly browned steaks just the way you like and at the comfort of your own kitchen without the need to step outside.
The Cream of the Crop
In addition to technologies and the above-mentioned smart functions, the Optigrill comes fitted with 6 automatic cooking programs that have already sold many customers. You can select between Burger, Poultry, Sandwich, Sausage, Red Meat and Fish programs according to what you're putting inside the grill. The item will automatically adapt the cooking process to the loaded food and cook it to perfection. Along with 6 pre-set cooking cycles, the grill offers two additional cooking options - a "Frozen" mode for defrosting and a "Manual mode" for experiments with various recipes. Moreover, this model is also available in XXL design that has as many as 9 pre-set programs and can cook up to 8 servings, enough for a small BBQ party, family dinner, or a weekend friendly get-together. Just place the meat on the grill, close the lid, and relax. The unit will take care of the rest.
The T-fal Optigrill is one of the most technological indoor grills out there and a bunch of functions and programs it’s packed with make it really the cream of the crop in its class. Even if your cooking skills leave much to be desired, this clever appliance will let you achieve nearly professional cooking results without much effort.

The timer is not digital but a manual knob that sits right beside the temperature control. No need to get your phone screen sticky or rewash your hands with the Cuisinart.
Another pro of this device is the floating 8 cm hinge. It doesn’t press too hard on the food load, making for the even and effective cooking on both sides. Forget the steaks that come out overdone or underdone – and get exactly what you want without the trial-and-error.
Now to the cleaning, which is extra easy for a grill. As mentioned above, the plates are non-stick, and the drip tray takes care of the excess fat.

What Is an Indoor Grill?
There're many benefits to using an electric grill but the main one is that it allows you to treat yourself and your close people to grilled steaks and veggies all year long. It works in a bit different way compared to that of a charcoal grill, yet it delivers almost the same restaurant-quality meats. Anytime! Once you turn a unit on, it quickly preheats the grilling plates to the required level and in just a matter of 10-15 minutes, you can get a juicy grilled burger or a perfectly-cooked steak. The plates heat up to a high searing temperature to give fish or meat crisp crusty finish. And all of this is done without a need to build a large charcoal fire and without flare-ups. So, an electric grill is a great option for grilling right in your kitchen or out on a small patio. There're two main types of indoor grills - open grill and contact grill. But, of course, neither of them is able to impart a charcoal flavour to your food and for big gatherings, neither may be the best solution. Therefore, if you need a grill for outdoor BBQ parties, we recommend you to purchase an outdoor charcoal grill or a charcoal smoker.
What Features to Compare
Indoor grills are highly versatile. You can choose between electric units, stovetop models, or grill pans for grilling in the oven. Electric appliances are normally more sophisticated and offer more precision while cooking. Non-electric models rather resemble cookware and are pretty simple. By cooking style, electric grills in their turn are divided into open and contact units. On the open grill, the food is cooked in a way similar to that applied in outdoor grills. Ingredients are grilled from the bottom and you will have to flip them to get them evenly cooked from both sides. Contact grills have two cooking plates folding together. The foods are placed in between the plates and cooked from the top and from the bottom simultaneously. This cooking style allows grilling faster and more evenly. Besides, today there is a great number of combination models with grilling plates opening to 180 degrees. Hence, the appliance can be used either as a contact grill or sandwich press or as an open grill with a larger cooking surface.
Power is an essential characteristic of an electric grill since it determines the appliance cooking performance. The more powerful a heating element is the quicker grilling plates will be preheated and the faster your meals will be cooked. The power range of electric grills varies from 750 to 2000 watts depending on the model type and unit size.
Most indoor grills offer a temperature control options. More sophisticated premium models provide manual temperature control along with a number of automatic settings for different types of foods and dishes. Some top-of-the-line units can even automatically adjust the cooking temperature depending on the food texture and thickness. All models, including simple no-frills ones, have light indicators signalling that the appliance is powered and when the cooking plates are heated up to an optimal or selected cooking temperature.
When it comes to grilling surface, opt for models with non-stick cooking plates that prevent scorching and greatly facilitate cleaning. In terms of the surface area, indoor grills vary from pretty large models that can accommodate up to 8-10 portions at a time to smaller 2-portion units. In the end, everything will depend on what you are mostly going to use your indoor grill for. Larger units are great for families and will come in handy for different sorts of gatherings and events while small grills best suit for singles, couples, and occasional use.
Some extra features you can find in indoor grills that add usability and convenience include a drip tray to collect the excess fat and juices running out while grilling, detachable dishwasher-safe cooking plates for the ease of cleaning, a floating hinge to accommodate foods of different thickness, an open-flat combination design for a variety of cooking options, and cool-touch handles for safe use.

Indoor Grilling Benefits
No doubt, grilled foods are delicious which makes them extremely popular among all types of eaters. Whether you are a meat eater and steak lover, a pescatarian, or even a vegan, there are hundreds or grill recipes for all tastes and diets. Besides, with an abundance of indoor grilling solutions, today, grilling is not a purely outdoor activity for a warm season anymore and we can enjoy our favourite barbecued meals all year long. However, while some grilling enthusiasts are in love with indoor grills and even prefer them to fire pits and charcoal grills, other are pretty sceptical and don’t regard indoor grills as a decent alternative to traditional outdoor options. For the sake of fairness, let’s look into some other benefits indoor grills offer apart from being able to barbecue foods right in the kitchen.
Indoor grilling is definitely faster and easier. Electric grills heat up very quickly and will cook your meals in mere minutes. With a charcoal grill, you will have first to burn charcoal or wood to embers before placing foods over it, that will normally take some time.
With indoor grills, you’ll avoid the mess and tiresome cleanups. Whether you use an electric grill or a stovetop one, all you have to do after cooking is to clean the grill plates and wash the drip tray if any. And since most models come with a non-stick coating, cleaning is really a piece of cake. No ashes to shovel and no greasy grills to scrub. Messy preps and cleanups are the major reasons why outdoor grills are mostly used on some special occasions, festive events, or weekends while indoor grills can be freely used for regular cooking on a daily basis.
Indoor grills are evidently a better option for beginner cooks. They allow for easier and more precise heat control. You can simply adjust the burner or an electric knob. Some more sophisticated electric models even come with pre-set grilling programmes taking away the need to fine tune the heat at all and doing all the job for you.
Last but not least, indoor grills are more versatile. They will let you cook almost anything you basically cook on an outdoor grill and much more. Not only will you be able to make palatable grilled sandwiches but also have an opportunity to grill some smaller pieces of food that would through the grates of a charcoal grill as well as fry eggs and even make pancakes.
Indoor Grilling Tips
To help you get the most out of your electric or stovetop grill and achieve delicious grilling results time and again, below, we’ve summed up some tricks and tips on indoor grilling:
First and foremost, always give preference to indoor models with non-stick cooking plates. It will both make cleanup a breeze and will help you avoid scorching. Hence, your foods will look appetizing and taste perfect.
Take care of some accessory tools. Though you can use an ordinary fork and spoon, having a set of several simple and affordable utensils wouldn’t hurt if you want to grill like a pro. Grilling must-haves include tongs to flip your steaks, veggies, fish, and poultry, a spatula to flip burgers and fillets, and a brush for spreading oil, baste or glaze.
When it comes to cooking, the results 50% depend on proper preparation. Two basic keys to success are the right cut size and foods seasoning. Whether you are going to grill meat, fish, poultry, or veggies, try to make thinner pieces. They will be cooked more quickly and evenly. Go for uniform pieces and avoid cooking chunks of different thickness at the same time to avoid over- and undercooking. Seasoning meats and veggies with salt and pepper are not enough. Make a kind of spice scrub or marinade using flavorful herbs mixed into canola or olive oil, water or vinegar. The best spices for the grill are rosemary, thyme, oregano, coriander, garlic powder, and paprika that will give your dishes that specific smoky grill flavour. When grilling meat, scrub it with spices or soak it in a marinade for at least 20 minutes before cooking while the veggies should be seasoned right before you put them onto a cooking plate.
To achieve and appetizing crust and get your foods cooked to perfection, it’s essential to preheat grill plates up to the maximum and choose the right cooking time. Grilling times for meats vary from 12 to 17 minutes for steaks, hamburgers, and chicken breasts to 5-7 minutes for hot dogs, fish fillets, and shrimps. While veggies are normally cooked from 3 to 8 minutes, depending on the texture. In case you use a closed grill, simply cut the cooking times in halves.
