Grilling Indoors with the T-Fal OptiGrill

As fall is beginning to come into full swing, grilling outside may be over before long. For those who want to continue to enjoy the taste and quality of grilled good, T-Fal granted many wishes by unveiling the OptiGrill ($179.95). This top notch electric indoor grill has impeccable countertop convenience that enables you experience grilled food without the weather dictating your grilling schedule. Unlike outdoor grills, there is less smoke and lesser mess to clean-up. It’s no wonder why Good Housekeeping touted it as one of the coolest kitchen gears for 2013!


Cooking some meats may not be an easy task for some, but the T-Fal OptiGrill is the first of its kind to use Precision Grilling Technology. This eliminates undercooked meat and over-grilling food in general. T-Fal OptiGrill makes this indoor grill user friendly for grilling novices and masters alike, with their control settings. There are six control settings that feature a picture of the type of meat that you’re wanting to cook – a hamburger, chicken, sandwich, sausage, steak, and fish. The grill takes it from there by sensing the thickness and the weight of the cut. It alerts you at each color-coded stage when the meat is well done, medium, or rare. The manual setting enables to press vegetarian options or sandwiches.

The T-Fal OptiGrill comes with extra large grill plates, making it easier for you to cook for a family of four. The grill plates are nonstick and made of die cast aluminum. They are also removable for an effortlessly easy clean-up.


The extra large drip tray that is also provided, eliminates excess fat, making your meal a healthier meal option for you and your family to enjoy.

Spinach Egg White Sandwich

The indoor grill also includes a cookbook that features 32 tantalizing to the palate recipes, such as Sundried Tomato and Balsamic Tofu Kebabs, Maple Grilled Root Vegetables, Grilled Mediterranean Vegetable Pasta Salad, Herb Parmesan Potatoes, Four Cheese Gourmet Grilled Cheese, and a head-spinning amount of meat recipes for meat lovers! As a vegetarian, this indoor grill is going to quickly become my new kitchen BFF since I’m going to use it quite often to make my favorite vegetable panini sandwiches. I recently made a breakfast sandwich, consisting of spinach, basil, and egg white. It was simply delish!

The T-Fal OptiGrill is available for $179.95 and ships for free. You can make the full payment or make 5 easy payments of $35.99.
