Meet OptiGrill, our ultimate innovation. Its "Automatic Sensor Cooking" technology immediately detects the number of items placed on the grill and their thickness, and adjusts the temperature and cooking time automatically. An indicator light allows you to monitor your cooking directly: Blue then green at the start of cooking, then yellow when the food is rare, orange when it is medium and red if you like your food well-done.

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. To clean the grill and grill components, use a cloth soaked in hot water. Do not immerse the grill in water. Do not use abbrasive cleaning products or products containing alcohol or fuel since these may damage the device.
• The grill plates have not been properly placed on the plate hooks and therefore, the sensors cannot correctly detect the food. To rectify this problem, turn off the appliance and allow it to cool down. Then install the cooking plate correctly. • You started cooking before preheating had finished. To rectify this: turn off the appliance, remove the food, close the appliance. Turn the appliance back on, select then confirm a programme and wait until preheating has finished. • You started cooking food between the plates without preheating. To rectify this: turn off the appliance, remove the food, close the appliance. Turn the appliance back on, select then confirm a programme and wait until preheating has finished. • If the problem persists despite adhering to the advice above: the appliance may need to be repaired.
The appliance has not been fully opened when placing the food on the grill plates before cooking. Solutions: To allow the appliance to detect the start of the cooking cycle, the appliance must be completely opened before each cooking cycle. If not, the cooking cycle will not start. Completely open the grill then close it and press OK.
If you leave the appliance open between 2 cooking cycles it will turn to safety mode and will have to be reset. To ensure the best cooking results, you should not open the appliance for more than 1 minute during cooking cycles. RESET by unplugging it for 2-3 minutes and restart full cooking cycle.
This may be due to improper cleaning of the cooking plates. We recommend that you pre-wash your cooking plates in the following manner before putting them in the dishwasher to remove any food residue: - Soak the plates in hot water and degreasing dish soap for about 30 minutes, - Scrub both sides of the plate with a sponge or a dish brush, hot water and degreasing dish soap, - Rinse, - Put in the dishwasher.
