Product Description

Tefal Actifry Family The UK's best-selling fryer – now 50% larger capacity*

The Tefal ActiFry Family is the new, bigger model in the ActiFry range. Enjoyed by more than three million households world-wide, the Tefal ActiFry is the best-selling fryer in the UK. The ActiFry is a revolutionary product which allows you to enjoy tasty, traditional, home-cooked chips, but at the same time stay healthy and feel good about what you are eating.

The ActiFry is part of the Nutritious & Delicious range from Tefal, which aims to produce innovative products for people searching for healthier ways to cook, without compromising on taste. The new Family model has 50% more capacity, so you can now cook 1.5kg of chips, while still using just one spoonful of oil.
Healthy, perfect chips with just three per cent fat**

By using just one spoonful of oil, you can make 1.5 kilograms of golden, crispy home-made chips, which is enough to feed a family of six.

That one spoonful is 100 times less than a traditional deep fat fryer, which not only means that your food is substantially healthier, but cooking is also more economical and 100% safe.

Simply load up to 1.5 kgs of freshly-cut chips into the ActiFry Family, drop in a measure of your preferred oil using the spoon provided and set the timer, the ActiFry does the rest. Just wait for the timer to end and the alarm to sound.

Tefal Actifry Family Patented technology - even cooking and no odours

The ActiFry Family has a patented hot air system and unique stirring paddle to ensure evenly-cooked food. There’s no need to shake or stir during cooking.

The ActiFry Family is temperature controlled for the best crispy chips every time, and since it requires no pre-heating, it's ready when you are. The ActiFry Family also has an odourless filter and fresh oil is used each time, which means that your kitchen will stay as fresh as it was when you started cooking.


It’s not just chips you can cook. The versatile ActiFry Family allows you to cook a range of foods from fresh and frozen, including sausages, chicken, fish, stir fried vegetables, frozen chips and more.

A free recipe book containing 60 recipes is included, to give you that inspiration you need when creating the perfect, healthy meal.

The ActiFry Family features a large LCD screen with timer. A warning alarm and automatic shut off at the end of the cooking period will let you know when your food is ready, so you can just sit back and relax while you wait.

Convenient, safe and easy to use

The steam-free lid and viewing window means that you can always keep an eye on your food, although with the food being constantly but gently stirred by the mixing arm, all you need to do is add your ingredients and let them cook.

The automatic lid opens at the push of a button for your convenience.
When opened, the ActiFry Family will automatically stop until you close the lid again. An easy grip handle means you can safely remove the pan and serve your food.

Dishwasher safe

Once you finished cooking your food, the lid, pan and paddle can all be removed and are all dishwasher safe. The scratch-resistant ceramic coated pan also means any leftover food comes off easily with no fuss.That’s everything you need to wash up taken care of. The ActiFry Family also supported by a 12-month guarantee.

About Tefal

Tefal owes its origins to Frenchman Marc Grégoire, an engineer and keen fisherman. Monsieur Grégoire wanted the reel on his rod to run more smoothly, and experimented in the 1950s to see if a non-stick coating would work. It did, but it was his wife Collette who made the real breakthrough, suggesting the coating would be more useful in making cookware easier to use and clean. Now, Tefal is the number one name in non-stick products and small appliances, operating in more than 120 countries.Tefal remains committed to making household tasks easier and cooking results better, through a constant flow of new ideas, technology and innovation. Examples of that cutting-edge innovation can be seen in the ActiFry, the AirBake baking range and Tefal's unique Thermo Spot, which ensures your pans are always the perfect temperature to start cooking.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Guilt Free Chips 19 May 2011
    Verified Purchase
    I have had one of these for 3 months and barely a day goes by without my using it. Not only does it cook potatoes (whatever shape, chips, roast, little square ones you buy from marks and spencer food hall etc etc)beautifully, but it 'dry frys' bacon, sausages, meatballs, skin with chicken on to perfection too with no smell and hardly any washing up, you just rinse the non stick pan out...It is a dry fryer after all, so I find it doesnt lend itself to foods you would normally slow cook, like spag bog and chilli.

    You wont regret paying the relatively steep price for this product. If mine ever conks out I shall go and buy a new one. Couldnt say that for most of the other kitched gadgets I have bought in the past. Do buy the bigger one though, it will serve you better in the long run once you get used to cooking more than the fabulous low fat chips it makes.

    The downside, (more of a note to the manufacturer this), the plastic dome cover is potentially vulnerable to break at the weak spots, long before the machine itself would give up, it would be nice to know replacements parts were available easily and cheaply.

    PS a Batch of chips takes approx 20mins, sausages also take 20mins come to think of it (!) but its worth mentioning that beacause the machine has a paddle inside that constantly turns the food, so you literally leave it to it and everything comes out evenly cooked on all sides.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Chips, Does So Much More 29 May 2011
    I've had this for a fortnight and to date simply using it for making roast potatoes but mainly chips. You really have to follow the little guidebook as it's totally different to cooking with deep fat fryers. To start off everything is already assembled and only needs a quick wash with a tiny drop of washing up liquid on a new cloth leave to dry thoroughly.

    I cook for mostly 3 people (0.6Kgs using 9 medium-sized potatoes) and with my preference for sunflower oil, it's recommended you use 1/2 of the supplied spoonful for chips, only use 1 spoonful for 1.5KGs. Even though the first time I used this it came out tasty and crispy, I did slightly overdo it to try to get it evenly coloured a nice golden colour. Only took 28mins with no pre-heating needed at all as the paddle keeps the chips turning. After getting used to this fryer I've now settled on the right timing. That is the only setting you need to worry about, there are no temperature controls which takes the hassle out of cooking. If your cooking frozen chips you don't even use any oil!

    Cooking chips is as simple as:
    1) place dried chips in pan
    2) put 1/2 tablespoon of oil over top of chips
    3) close lid
    4) turn on
    5) select timer according the amount of chips to cook
    6) wait for timer to beep (this stops the cooking process unless you add additional time)
    7) turn off the fryer (and at the wall) and serve straight onto plates

    I haven't cooked vegetables or meat yet simply because when your doing chips and steaks there isn't room or time. You should check the recipe book as you can cook most things your oven can (bar cakes etc lol), quite amazing!

    Worth every single penny. This is our second one, and we opted for the family one so we could all have a good portion of healthy chips! NO SMELL, NO mess! Everyone should have one.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Actifry an excellent and unique product 22 May 2011
    By Andie
    Had the normal size actifry which produced brill potato wedges but not enough for 4 so bought the family version which did not appear that much bigger, but I was wrong. These feeds my family of 4 comfortably as the space just seems to be better allocated. A bit pricey though and was hoping it would come down in price but couldn't wait any longer really. A great product and a great service from Amazon who disatched it very quickly.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Long term review - not so good 19 April 2012
    Verified Purchase
    Had the Actifry for just under 10 months now and I'll be contacting Amazon shortly as it's falling to bits. It has been used probably 5 days a week but mostly only to cook a small (toddler sized) portion. Couple of times a week it gets used for the 4 of us to do either chips or roast usually frozen as fresh is too much hassle and never came out that great even when even sized, well rinsed and dried.

    the good points firstly. After a bit experimentation with various brands we settled on McCain french fries and it produces these bang on perfect every time, 10 minutes for anything up to a couple of portions, 15 to 20 if for everyone, give them a shake in the middle. Sausages as well it does a treat.

    Now the bad points, as mentioned above it's falling apart. At least one of the restraining clips in the handle has snapped as the handle now flexes and wobbles alarmingly with even a modest sized portion. It's never had anywhere near the 1.5kg it is supposed to handle probably less than 1 kg max. The little clear cover that sits on the lid around the handle started falling off after a couple of weeks and now the lid has a crack running from one of the front catches up and across the top working its way to a corresponding crack on the other side. When the 2 meet then it won't be useable. Nearly 200 and it doesn't even last a year!

    Would I buy another? Not the tefal design too many issues, will try another make if Amazon refuse to replace it I think.

    The only reason it works with a spoonful of oil is it keeps the food moving throughout cooking. The only way it will work of course. However, the food is no was as tasty!
