This Smart Grill Can Cook to Specific Steak Temperatures, From Rare to Well-Done
Let me tell you about my mom. Like most moms, she cooks. She cooks often. Sometimes, she even cooks well (sorry mom, *most of the time). But she does not know how to cook steak. It’s something she’s struggled with for years now, each time resulting in nothing less than expertly seasoned slabs of beef jerky.
For the first part of my life it was acceptable, then it became annoying, then endearing, but now I think it’s time I helped her out by getting her one of these OptiGrills for Christmas (just . . . don’t quote me on it).
OptiGrill is an indoor electrical grill capable of measuring a cut of meat’s thickness (whether steak or chicken or hot dog or what have you) and adjusting the cooking time and temperature according to that thickness. A color-changing cooking indicator lets you set your food’s ideal temperature and an alarm dings when it’s time to take it off the grill.
Now, knowing my mom, she’ll probably insist on turning the dial all the way to “well-done” anyway, despite my and the rest of my family’s fervent protests, but at least now it’ll be on purpose. Silly mom.
OptiGrill: $180 @ T-fal, available in October
