The perfect companion appliance to the Gourmia Hot Air Fryer, the T-Fal OptiGrill has sensors built into its grill plates that ensure steaks, hamburgers, fish, poultry, sausage, and sandwiches are cooked just the way you like them—and with pushbutton simplicity. Just push the button that matches the food you intend to cook—there’s even a setting for frozen food. An included cookbook has recipes for grilling fruits and vegetables, too.
Once the grill has warmed up, place the food on the plate, close the lid, and watch the round LED on the right-hand side of the handle. Remove the food when the color indicates it’s reached the desired level: green during warmup, yellow for rare, orange for medium, and red for well done. You’ll also hear a beep at each interval, and you can even remove portions you want served rare and continue to cook the rest—the sensors will notice the change and adjust the grill in response. The non-stick grill plates will leave appetizing sear marks on your food, and they’re tilted, so that excess grease drains into a tray below. Both the plates and the tray can be removed for easy cleanup.
