Tefal GC722D40 Optigrill : Five Stars

This is the best kitchen appliance i’ve ever had. Love it, i use it nearly every day.

Very good product, came on time, well packed, recommend for everyone.

Best machine ive bought and have thrown away my george forman. Love the simplicity but the best bit is the fat tray size and connection to the unit which sadly let the george forman down. Bought the larger one as wanted the ability to cook for the family in one go.

We’ve cooked loads of great meals on this.

Easy to use, bleeps to let you know what stage it’s at.

Superlative grill takes a full six slice pack of dry cured bacon in one gosimply press the on button then select the bacon button then ok then wait for it to heat up and beep then place the bacon on the grill put the lid down press ok again for thin bacon then leave until the light goes to orange and beeps then that’s it, switch off and lift the lid for perfectly grilled bacon, with no repeat lifting and checking, every thing comes off cooked perfectly to your requirements, let the non stick grill plates cool down then put in the dishwasher they come out like new, wipe the grill plates with a little sunflower oil on a paper towel this will aid the non stick surfaces for next use.

Still early days, only managed to use it a few times. All my life we have used the george forman one. While i have no complaints about that, this seems to be much better for wide variety of foods. I’m still trying to get the hang of it, so much feature and functions, sometimes i feel i’ve selected the wrong option. Which is a good problem to have. But when we have used it, it does a great job. The grill seems to cook the food evenly. I can see this grill to become an essential item to the kitchen like a microwave.

The food comes perfect (fish, meat, vegetables) and the cleaning process is really easy. It’s the best grill i’ve had in ages \m/.

I like that i don’t have to watch it all the time – cooking is automatic & works well. I do not give it heavy use but do enjoy it. Even easier – i use a “grill bag ” so it is even easier to clean.

Delivery was on time and product was up to my expectation.

Excellent product does what it says.

It’s ok, not sure about all the hype.

I recommend it for every lazy person like me lol. If you are grilling more than 1 beef/chicken steak, make sure all of them same thickness.

So far the best griller i ever used :best for beef steaks ( perfectly prepared)salmon steak ( perfectly prepared)check cubsonly few things to mentiondo not apply to much spices on the steaksneed to know how to use it multiple times ( continuously), need to set the griller again and wait about 5 min to be ready to use the automated program.

Easy to use and clean,grills food to perfection.
