A bit of a random post from me today, but certainly one for you foodies/home owners out there...I'm a bit of a kitchen gadget hoarder. I love anything that makes cooking easier or faster and unfortunately for the hubby, that means pretty much any kitchen gadget advertised. Yes I have a juicer, blender, air fryer, slow cooker, but I didn't own any grill-type appliance, until now.
The Tefal Optigrill* is easily one of my favourite cooking aids I've ever come across. It can cook pretty much anything to perfection, without you having to stand over and make sure it's not burning. I'm have a small phobia of under-cooking chicken, which means whenever I pop some in the oven, it always turns out over done and a little dry. However since having the Optigrill in my life, I've had perfect meat every time.
So how does it work? It's really straight forward, even a kitchen novice, like me, can work it out. Yu switch it on, select your programme - either defrost, a meat of your choice from the pictures or manual for everything else. Press okay and the grill starts to heat up. Here's the best part, the button at the end changes colour to correspond with the writing so you know exactly what stage of cooking your food is up to, from preheat to well-done. It has pre-set cooking times for poultry which is always well-done, but for steak you can choose how you like it by removing your meat at the correct time.
After each cooking stage, the Optigrill beeps to let you know it's moved onto the next stage and beeps again when cooking is completed. This means while it's doing it's thing you can be relaxing in the living room or preparing your side dishes, without worrying about your main. Plus the grill works so quickly, your food will be ready before you know it.
This is seriously a kitchen game changer and I would 100% recommend the grill to anyone that likes to be a little lazy from time to time. Plus it's just as healthy as grilling food, making it the perfect appliance for a family kitchen.
