A new year means people all over the world are making New Year’s resolutions to eat healthier, exercise more and generally take better care of their health.
One way to make the healthy eating part easier is by grilling your food – lean cuts of meat or even vegetables can be grilled with no effort with the Tefal Optigrill, a product which has been sitting on my kitchen counter top since I was sent one for review last June. I’ve been using my Optigrill grill regularly ever since, and as I’m currently trying to shift the few extra pounds put on in 2014 I use it even more.
One of my current favourite dishes is to marinade some chicken breasts in a little olive oil mixed with Chipotle seasoning, press the on button on my Optigrill, wait for it to beep that it’s ready, plonk the marinated chicken breasts on the tray, close the lid and wait. Served sliced with some protein-rich quinoa and a generous helping of steamed vegetables it’s a perfect, filling, low calorie meal.
Besides cooking meat perfectly it’s super easy to clean; just wait for the Optigrill to cool, disassemble the cooking plates and put them in the dishwasher along with the drip tray. No fuss!
The Tefal Optigrill uses “Automatic Sensor Cooking” technology which immediately detects the number of items placed on the grill and their thickness, and adjusts the temperature and cooking time automatically. An indicator light allows you to monitor your cooking directly: Blue then green at the start of cooking, then yellow when the food is rare, orange when it is medium and red if you like your food well-done.
- 6 cooking programmes (red meat, poultry, fish, sausages, hamburgers and sandwiches/panini or bacon) to automatically adapt the temperature to each type of food and cook it perfectly.
- 2 cooking modes: one for frozen food, plus a manual mode that lets you cook anything the way you want.
- 600cm2 cooking surface (capacity 2 to 4 people), with non-stick die-cast aluminium plates.
- Large juice tray and 7° angled plates to ensure the cooking juices run off.
The Tefal Optigrill now comes in a gorgeous, sleek black colour, and I am delighted to announce that they have offered one of my readers the chance to win one!
