The healthier way to fry: Fluffy crispy chips with just 3% fat*

Want to enjoy fluffy crispy chips and not feel guilty about it? Simply cut up fresh potatoes, and using just one spoonful of oil, you can make one kilogram of golden, crispy home-made chips, which is enough to feed a family of four. The ActiFry allows you to cook crispy and fluffy chips and enjoy them with your family, guilt-free. That one spoonful contains 100 times less oil than a traditional deep fat fryer, which not only means that your food is substantially healthier, but cooking is also more economical and safe for the whole family. For frozen foods, you can even cook your meals without adding any additional oil.

A free recipe booklet is also included, to give you that initial bit of inspiration you need when creating the delicious, healthy meal. Why not try the turkey breast with three peppers recipe or a traditional chilli con carne, and if you really want to impress, cook up a casserole or curry – all in the Tefal ActiFry. There are endless possibilities, so set your imagination free and make the most of the dishes you prepare.

ActiFry has a patented hot air system and stirring paddle which together ensure excellent all over cooking results. Also, there's no need to shake or stir during cooking, so you can enjoy hands-free cooking, not to mention more free time as well, as you don't have to constantly tend to your cooking. The ActiFry is temperature controlled for the best crispy chips every time, and since it requires no pre-heating, it's ready to go when you are. In order to ensure you enjoy a pleasant cooking experience, the ActiFry is also equipped with an odourless filter and since a fresh spoonful of oil is used each time you cook, you won't have that fatty chip shop smell lingering and your kitchen and cleaning-up is a breeze.

ActiFry is simple and hassle-free to use. All you need to do is place your food in the bowl, add a spoonful of your chosen oil, close the lid, set the timer and let it cook away. Whilst cooking, the ActiFry will maintain a constant cooking temperature, at approximately 170°C to ensure excellent and even cooking results. For peace of mind, the steam-free lid and viewing window also allows you to keep an eye on how your cooking is progressing.

Once you've finished cooking your meal, the lid, bowl and paddle can all be removed and are all dishwasher-safe. The rest of the ActiFry can be easily wiped clean with a wet cloth or soft sponge - that's everything you need to wash up taken care of.

Audible Timer

The ActiFry also features a timer, which can be set for up to 99 minutes. Simply switch the ActiFry on, place the ingredients in the non-stick bowl, close the lid and set the timer. An audible "ready" alarm at the end of the cooking period will let you know when your food is cooked, so you can just sit back and relax while you wait. On the Family version of the ActiFry, which serves up to 6 portions, the cooking process will automatically stop when the timer reaches zero.

Automatic lid

The lid can also be opened during cooking at a push of a button, in case you want to add some ingredients or seasoning to your recipe. When the lid is opened, the ActiFry will automatically pause the cooking until you close the lid again – at which point it will resume cooking from the time it paused.

Non-stick removable pan

Tefal ActiFry boasts a removable ceramic coated pan which ensures it is easy to clean. And if you have a dishwasher, feel free to place the pan, paddle and lid all into the dishwasher for easy, hassle-free cleaning.

Free recipe booklet

Each ActiFry comes complete with its own recipe booklet containing a variety of mouth-watering meal suggestions for the whole family, including Chicken Tikka Masala, a vegetable stir fry and even Mediterranean style calamari recipes.

For more meal ideas and tips, you can also download the new 'My ActiFry' app.

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, Tefal Steam Generators and the Jamie Oliver cookware range boasting Tefal's Thermo Spot, which ensures your pans are always at the ideal temperature to start cooking.

I got the ActiFry recently primarily because I've been doing Slimming World.

'Slimming World' chips are chips sprayed in Frylight and cooked in the oven. To be honest, they're acceptable, but they're not the same - the aren't really crunchy on the outside and they're not very fluffy on the inside. I got a bit bored of chips like that, so I decided to get one of these.

Putting it together was as simple as could be - I managed to get everything open and apart without a second thought, gave it a wipe down and away we went.

On the first night I cooked a batch of chips, some bacon and some sausages. I chipped the potatoes, rinsed them and patted them dry, sprayed them with Frylight (avoiding using even the tablespoon of oil because that would be more fat than just doing them in the oven) and set the machine off.

30 minutes later (there weren't that many of them - the book states 45 minutes for 1Kg), I had a batch of hot chips. They were much more crispy, better on the inside too. I was really impressed with the results because to be honest I wasn't holding out much hope that it would be any different to cooking them in the oven.

Straight after they came out, I tried some sausages and bacon in there. I put both in at the same time (6 low-fat sausages, 6 medallions of bacon) and added no oil. I was a little worried about whether it would cook the sausages through, whether the sausages would be too heavy for the agitator, and whether the bacon would burn being put in at the same time, but 12 minutes later both of them were beautifully cooked through.

Cleanup was relatively simple, though a few little pieces of chip managed to get through to the base of the machine and had to be wiped out.

Colour Name:White|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
It's clear from the wording and pictures on the box, and from the first-mention in the instruction book, that CHIPS are one of the target food staples for this product. Well, there is no doubt in my mind that you should only cook (frozen) chips in the Actifry if you have no other choice, because the result is not as good as the same type of chip cooked in a normal fitted oven. Some of the crispness is lost and they taste rather rubbery. The initial appeal of cooking frozen chips in a dry environment turned to disappointment and in summary I would say that chips and the Actifry don't make the best partners.

It's a slightly better story with potatoes though. A little oil is needed, and there's no point in applying more than the recommended amount. The general feedback from around the dining table was "Hmm - they're okay" and comments like that. Just 'acceptable', that's all, but definitely better than McCain frozen chips.

I also cooked some chicken nuggets and southern-fried chicken steaks - with conflicting results. Both of these types of food are battered and a lot of the batter (or breadcrumbs) gets scraped off by the rotating arm so in terms of presentation it's a thumbs down. Even children will look a bit sceptical when the plate is put in front of them because the nuggets look as if they've gone 15 rounds with Mike Tyson - 'battered' takes on a new meaning here. On the positive side however, the taste was fine and much, much better than the frozen-type chips. I have tried Quorn sausages (for vegetarians) and I couldn't really fault it - a very good result.

Because the food in the Actifry is liable to cosmetic damage by the rotating arm, making potato chips (i.e.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good, but could be much better 25 Jan 2013
By T. Wagg
Colour Name:Black
I have had 3 Tefal Actifry air fryers and I have to say they make excellent chips. They are versatile but equally they are not as good as they are sometimes made out to be.
The major problem with them seems to be that they were clearly designed (I guess by a man) for aesthetics and not practicallity. They are incredibly difficult to keep clean and although most parts can be taken of to clean it is often almost impossible to get to some of the places which need to be cleaned - especially in the paddle. However designed that wants to be sentenced to a lifetime of cleaning it.
The paddle is also quite brittle really. It could have done with being made out of metal instead of that cheap stupid plastic affair which, especially when it ages, is very easy to break (I know I have already bought three as spare parts)
Similar can be said of the plastic transparent lid. That too breaks far too easily in a kitchen environment and they are not cheap to replace - although a full range of spare is available on-line. The other regular replacement needed is the handle - which is all too easily unintentionally separated from pan.
The design of the filter is rather silly and that too breaks easily with a heavily used machine. The plastic just gets too brittle.
I suppose when you read this you will think I am opposed to the actifry, but nothing is further from the truth. They are a good idea - but they are not made of sturdy materials and if you buy one you must be prepared to get spares by mail order on a fairly regular basis.
I am currently on my third one - which has also now become defective. The 'vanes' on the rotor have disappeared and the paddle will no longer turn.
