You can also use the Tefal Grill Ultra Compact Grill GC308812 as a table grill by opening it completely. That way you can use it with your friends or family. Use the three settings to adjust the temperature to suit your preparation. For example, use the high setting to sear a steak and the low setting to cook a piece of chicken without burning it. The grease collector catches the grease while you're using the grill, keeping the grill surface clean and allowing you to easily throw away the grease remains. After use, remove the ribbed griddles and the grease tray from the contact grill so that you can easily clean them in the dishwasher.
