I'll admit - I am a sucker for checking out gadgets. Most times though, no matter how cool the idea sounds it simply doesn't work out as advertised. This is NOT one of those times. The T-Fal OptiGrill is simply an amazing and it is the ultimate mealtime gadget for guys. I'm sure that you can cook veggies on here, but this is about meat - hamburger patties, chicken, sausage, fish, steaks - it does it all and cooks it perfectly.
I remember having a "George Forman" grill back in college. It was good but it's use was mostly limited to cooking up burgers and you really had to just guess if something was done. Plus, cleanup was a mess so I never used it as much as I had planned to.
Optigrill is the logical evolution of all the great things which that grill promised and I have used it almost every day for the past few weeks since i got it for this review.
