This is kind of the greatest thing to happen to my tiny NY kitchen: the T-fal OptiGrill. Not gonna lie, it looked intimidating to use when I first got it, but I found the smart grill makes cooking meat a no-brainer with its color-coded cooking indicator.
The grill has an automatic sensor grilling so no matter what the thickness, it indicates by beeping when the meat is rare to well-done. When you turn it on, you just click the button showing what meat you’re cooking (they have options for beef, chicken, fish, sausage, etc.). Just close the grill to let it pre-heat, and it’ll beep when it’s ready. Then place the meat, and the sensor will change colors depending on what stage the meat is (rare, medium, medium-well, well-done, etc).
But the to me one of the greatest things about this grill is you can cook frozen meat right on it since it has an option to de-frost the food, then cook it in one shot. Here, I made an easy breakfast of eggs and chicken sausages from Honest Chops (side note: they have pre-seasoned meats available there which I love because it saves me so much time).
It makes it really quick to prepare meats, like these rosemary burgers I made for guests on the fly (just seasoned it with salt and pepper and added pieces of rosemary. Serve on wheat things with a little mayo spread, kale, chopped onions, and ketchup).
And lastly the clean-up is super easy because of its non-stick surface. I just wipe a soapy paper towel over it and it picks the grease right up. Saves me so much time. Plus using no oils to grill gives me healthier options to make my food.
