    Cool grill but didn't work out

    At first, this grill was great. It would cook meat fairly quick and be somewhat close to perfection. But you would always have to check to be sure it wasn't undercooked when it beeps at you. Especially with chicken. Personally, I am knocking off 3 stars because of the following. - In my opinion, I feel the price is just too high for what it does. The beeping for when the meat is done is still not accurate as what the box stays it is. I feel like you could get the same functionality with a cheaper counter grill. - Our grill really didn't last more than a year before it ran into some sort of error issue. The grill would blink white and just refused to turn on. We tried a couple of tricks with the contacts on the top and bottom but sadly this did not fix the issue. Sadly the support line wouldn't replace the grill. So we gave up on it and got a different counter grill. In my experience, it is expensive and doesn't seem to last very long before having some issue with the grill. I probably wouldn't recommend this grill and would say you could get something better for cheaper.

    Awesome Grill-When It Works

    I bought this grill after reading numerous complaints about only being able to use manual mode. I gave it the benefit of the doubt and figured they had worked it out already. I chose to buy it. The first three times I used it I was in love. Cooked burgers perfectly, but everytime I have tried to cook after that it has failed me. Now it will only grill in manual mode, and that's a problem because I have to babysit what I'm cooking. I'm no Wolfgang Puck so I'd rather have a dummy light that tells me when it is ready; after all it's what I paid for. I'm disappointed and it's probably a simple fix, but until they fix it I will not recommend this grill. What a shame.

    I recently purchased the T-Fal Optigrill+ electric grill, and I absolutely love it! The temperature indicators (light and beeps) tell me when the food reaches each cooking stage (rare to well done). When you cook food with the preselected choices, the food will not overcook when it reaches well done. Every piece of meat is cooked perfectly with plenty of juices! Just take care when cooking with the manual setting, or you can overcook your food. The grill was pricey, but it was definitely worth it! Also, make sure you clean the plates regularly, or you will make smoke.

    Brought the original and loved it. I used all the grill setting and the machine cooked the meats as advised. About 2 years in the grill plates started to flake off. I'm glad I always buy the protection plans on hardware at Best buy. Easy return and got the newer plus version. This one only adds and manual temp setting which works well. I had to YouTube on how to reset the grill since it was freezing on me but just follow the reset instructions and all will be fine.....so far. Lovin it.

    This grill is awesome for food prep. On fatty cuts of meat, it does a really good job of keeping it lean. Not that all fats are bad but if your cutting down due to high cholesterol, this grill is a good idea. Or if you want to put it and forget it till the grill beeps this is also a good thing. I am replacing an old unit with this newly purchased one from BB. Get one!

    actualy, i only used this grill abut 4 times. the last time , i try a tri tip, that was a little to large for the grill , so I cut the tri tip in halve, cooking 1 halve at a time, i set the grill on well done because the meat was about 2 inches thick, I watched and check several times while cooking. the meat was cooked on out like bbq, the inside was pink. for me just right.

    I am actually booing to return this product and pick up a Breville smart grille. I cooked porkchops on this grill and still had to bake in an oven afterwards. I think some of the sensors were not working.. I did grill hamburgers which were good. All in all it does work ok but don't want to take any chances of sensors going out.

    This was a birthday gift for my wife (she actually likes getting small appliances) and someone in our house uses it almost every day, Burgers, dogs, sandwiches, chicken, pork chops, you name it, we've probably cooked it on this. We love it!

    I was looking for a small quick solution to grill food on during hot summer days to avoid from standing outside in the 90-100+ degree heat to BBQ. I have used the Optigrill several times to cook fish and steaks and every time they come out amazing. Clean up is quick and easy as well.

    I did read about this product but I was a little hesitant to get it to myself, now that I got it I can definitely recommend it. It is easy to use and the instructions gives you step by step to get the best out of it. I truly like it.

    This thing is great. I was worried about purchasing a new grill for doing chicken in winter. My Cuisinart was about 10 years old and the nonstick was starting to fade. Can cook steaks perfectly with this baby no worries. It tells you when they are done to your liking.

    I'm the person that leaves everything on my bbq grill too long and it tastes like shoe leather. I've made steak and chicken that is cooked to perfection using my optigrill. Love, love, love it! Can't go wrong with a T-fal product in my opinion.

    Very easy to use and clean. Enjoy your favs grilled food at home any time. I wish best buy sold Bake and snack accessory - it turns this grill in to a mini oven for pizzas, lasagnas, etc.

    I had a George Foreman grill. Which was great for the past 6 years or so. But this item is exceeds its competitor in every way. Cleaning is simple, operation is automatic. And food comes out perfect the way it was made to operate.

    My husband likes his meat well done and I like mine medium. I can place two hamburgers on the grill and within minutes mine is done with a yellow dot and soon after his is well done with a red dot. Perfect.

    If you don't have outdoor grill or cannot have because you live in a apartment, get this one -- stakes, chicken, burgers, fish, grilled vegetables and fruit perfect every time. But read manual first, really helpful. Super easy to use.

    It cooks great and the options are good. Only thing is it starts to smoke from the back after several uses. I’ve cleaned it many times. I must be missing something

    This is one of the most convenient, easy to use indoor grills on the market. I like the color indicator, and there is a button for just about anything you want to grill. Cleanup is a breeze as well.
