Product Description

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
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. There are easy-to-prepare recipe sections for kids, teens and the whole family. Why not try creating your favourite curry or spicy chicken drumsticks, and for dessert an apple-mango crumble.


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.

    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.

    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!

    UPDATE 23rd October: The Actifry broke down for the second time in early August. On 13th August I took it to Le Clinique du Petit Menager for repair. I was advised that I would be contacted when it was ready for collection. I returned to Le Clinique some three weeks later to be advised that the equipment wasn't ready because "everyone is on holiday", and was once again told to wait to hear from them. I contacted Le Clinique shortly before I left for holiday on 28th September - by now the equipment had been with them for around 7 weeks. I was told it was not ready because it required a new motor, and I should wait for them to contact me. I left for my vacation, returning on 18th October. I contacted them on 20th October, to be advised that the equipment is not repairable, and that they would be obtaining a new model for me - and - surprise, surprise - I should wait to hear from them. How long - I asked - and was told one, maybe two or three weeks.

    I HAVE SERIOUSLY HAD ENOUGH. Apart from any other consideration my warranty period will expire within the next two or three weeks, and I can see myself being left hanging, and then being told - sorry - your equipment is no longer covered by warranty.

    I paid 262 euro for this product - whichever way I look at it, this is not a cheap piece of kit. I bought it less than 11 months ago, and three of those months have been spent in the repair shop.

    Unfortunately, my French isn't sufficiently fluent for me to enter into a discussion / argument about the disgraceful length of time the equipment has been with Le Clinique in Cahors - nor to explain my anxieties about the warranty period expiring, so once again I have turned to Tefal.com, Facebook, Twitter in an effort to provoke some sort of satisfactory response.

    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.
