Expensive Junk

published

I purchased one of these and it was amazing, cooked perfectly, loud audible beeps, but a lightning strike close to my house blew it amongst other appliances. So i decided to replace it. The new one doesnt heat evenly and means the cooking times are out, coupled with the fact its beeping is barely loud enough to hear over the rangehood noise. Would never buy tefal again

Purchased in at The Good Guys for $499.

One of the best and most useful appliances I own.

published

I bought this grill two years ago and since then I've used it on a regular basis to grill meat, fish, veggies and chicken. The grill is very easy to use, I usually use the pre-programmed setting for grilling fish although I only leave it in until the colour code is for medium. Same I was doing with the meat as if you leave it too much it might dry up a bit too much. It is a very convenient piece of equipment to have in the kitchen especially if you love grilled food and you are in a hurry to cook. It is also quite easy to clean and the drip tray is excellent. After two years of use there is a slight wear on the grill plates and they are becoming a bit harder to clean but with some extra effort all is good.

Grill plates not built well

published

We have used this Tefal model for some days now and the settings are easy once you read through all the instructions.
We havent tested meat or fish (except sandwiches) yet so I cannot really review it properly.
However, I found some issues with the grill plates. The upper plate is not built well as one side is loose and also the bottom grill plate does not hook and its very loose. Seems like it is being built cheaply which is a shame foe the name of Tefal.

Purchased in for $110.

Best grill I’ve used.

published

I replaced my Sunbeam grill press with this awesome beast of a machine.

It cooks the perfect steak, chicken, sausages, schnitties , kebabs and burgers and it takes all the guess work out for you.

I love the colour coded lights that tell you when it’s rare, medium or well done etc and it beeps when it’s up to temperature and beeps at every moment it hits a state of doneness and also beeps a little tune when it’s finished.

The removable grill plates are so easy to clean and there are little bumps on the bottom plate to hold your meat in place.

It does give nice grill marks but doesn’t char your meat as such, but that’s neither here nor there for every day cooking.

It’s a great appliance and I wouldn’t hesitate in buying another one.

Cooking made easy

published

The OptiGrill makes certain meals super easy to prepare, especially if you're cooking for 1 or 2 people. You obviously don't get the same flavour compared to grilling on a BBQ but it's a convenient alternative. It's fast to heat up and to cook. Clean up is relatively easy (be sure to give it a quick wipe down as soon as you're done). If you're looking for a grill and have more than 2 people to cook for I'd recommend getting the larger version.

Purchased in at Amazon for $179.

Shorting power after 18 months. Can no loner use it. Previous grill George Foreman lasted 10 years. Very poor value for one of the most expensive grills of its type.

Optigrill+ GC712/22

Is there any way to store the Optigrill XL (GC722D61) vertically? It has quite a large footprint (400mm x 300mm) and I don't have a whole cupboard shelf, in a granny flat, to lose.

Unfortunately I purchased the last in stock and the salesman couldn’t pack it back into the box without breaking the foam.

My opti Grill - is brand new - straight out of the box - the first time we tried to use it - my power failed - after putting my power back on many times it was found that the opti grill was the problem - I phoned Tefal re this problem and about the warranty - and because this was a present and we didn’t have a receipt - even though it’s brand new - they were not interested - how much of a cop out is that - it’s there product - it’s brand new - it’s bloody faulty and doesn’t work - but because it’s been a gift and we don’t have a receipt - even though we have the box -they are not interested

A very simple Google search to find tefal.com.au and two clicks later you'll find the drip tray spare parts. Far easier than finding your way to this site and navigating to this product review area for the Optigrill !
