Including "Automatic Sensor Cooking" technology, time and temperature are automatically adjusted to the thickness and number of items placed on the grill, based on 9 cooking programs (Burger, Red meat, Sandwich, Sausage, Fish, Poultry, Seafood, Bacon, Pork) and a frozen food mode. At the same time, an indicator light allows direct monitoring: Purple for preheating, blue then green at the start of cooking, yellow when the food is rare, orange for medium and red for well-done. Perfectly adaptable to everyone's tastes, simply lift up the lid to pick up your meat when it's ready and leave the rest to carry on cooking!

Instructions & Manual
Frequent questions
No as the cooking sensors are not active in Manual Mode.
No. Once the first batch has finished open the grill fully and remove the food. Close the grill and press OK. You do not have to switch off the grill first. When the lights flash again, choose the mode that you want. The preheating phase should be a lot quicker than the first time as the plates will already be hot. When the Optigrill beeps to say it is ready, open the grill again and put the second batch of food on to the plates and continue as normal.
Before cleaning your grill, wait around 45 minutes while the device cools. To remove heavy food residue on the grill plates or on the side, we recommend you use a wooden or plastic spatula.
