View Larger

Enjoyed by more than five million households world-wide, the Tefal ActiFry has been cooking deliciously healthy meals in British households since 2007. In a nutshell, 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. Its patented technology ensures you can cook a variety of delicious meals with excellent all over cooking results.

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.

You can cook much more than just chips though. The ActiFry is so versatile it allows you to cook a range of foods from fresh and frozen, including sausages, chicken, fish, stir fried vegetables, frozen chips and much more. 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.

Convenient and easy to use

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.

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.

Pause function’

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 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Should there be a small gap between the cover and the body of the Actifry?

A: Yes - this is normal. The lid and body should not be air tight so that moisture can escape and avoid any pressure building up within the appliance.

Q: Does the Actifry automatically turn off when the cooking time is up?

A: Only on the Family Actifry and the Actifry 2-in-1, the other models beep to alert you but carry on cooking until they are manually turned off. Please also note that electrical items should not be left unattended.

Q:The lid gets hot during use – is this normal?

A:Yes – this is perfectly normal.

Q: How can I avoid the lid cracking and breaking?

A: Always clip the lid into place firmly but gently. When closing the lid, do not bang the lid shut but use the finger tab on the front of the lid to gently press the lid into place. If putting the lid in the dishwasher, always place it near the top of the dishwasher (the cooler area) and use a cooler setting - refer to your dishwasher manual.

Q: My Actifry will not switch on, there is no light and no power - why?

A: 1. Try putting the plug into a different mains socket - as there may be a fault with your mains socket. 2. Try changing the fuse in the plug. 3. If there is still no power, call the Tefal Helpine: 0345 602 1454.

Q: What temperature does the Actifry cook at?

A: The cooking temperature of the Actifry is approximately 180°C (160°C at the heart of the food) at the end of the cooking.

Q: How much oil is recommended for use in the Actifry?

A: For the standard capacity 1kg Actifry and 1.2kg Actifry Plus, there is a spoon provided with a volume of 14ml. The 1.5kg food capacity Actifrys are supplied with a spoon measuring 20 ml. The majority of recipes will use one spoonful of oil, however this may change according to the recipe. Some foods do not need one full spoonful of oil to be cooked in the Actifry: frozen chips will already have oil on the exterior and fatty foods such as sausages may not need a full spoonful of oil as there may be a lot of fat already in the foods.

Q: What types of oil can I use in my Actifry?

A: The Actifry can be used with a variety of oils such as Olive Oil, Vegetable Oil, Sunflower Oil.

Q: How much oil do I need to add for frozen chips?

A: None as the chips already contain oil.

Q: Can I purchase the recipe book?

A: These are not available to purchase but you can download the recipes.

Q: What are the best potatoes to use in the Actifry?

A: Maris Piper or Red Rooster generally give the best results. However, results can vary for all potatoes used depending on the season and also how they are stored in supermarkets. If you do not achieve good results then try changing where you purchase them from.

Q: What is the best way of cooking chips and to avoid soggy chips?

A: Ensure that the chips are all cut to a similar size. Wash the cut chips twice in a bowl of water before cooking to remove any excess starch. It is then essential to dry them thoroughly before cooking in a clean, absorbent tea towel and finally patted dry with kitchen paper. Any moisture will give soggy chips. Also, see above for the best potatoes to use.

Q: Do I have to use the paddle during cooking?

A: Yes in the 1kg and 1.2kg Actifrys to prevent food falling into the motor unit.

Q: What do I do if my product fails?

A: Visit the Tefal website and complete the Contact Us form or call the Tefal Customer Relations Helpline: 0345 602 1454.

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? )
This is our first hot air frier and frankly, we were highly sceptical about what benefits this could have. How wrong could we be!

First impressions on unpacking were however slightly disappointing. For some reason, Tefal didn't give the Actifry any protection other than the outer box and top and bottom polystyrene packers, not even a polythene bag. Very surprising as other Tefal products have come suitably protected. Instruction and guarantee information was loose inside the box and the Actifry's normal pre-use clean was a little more necessary than normal when a simple polythene bag protecting it could have immediately improved matters. The build quality on our particular Actifry was also a little disappointing with some poorly finished plastic with the top surface having plastic flow marks visible,a very small but visible graze (I suspect from the unprotected and unrestrained 13 amp plug) and a surprisingly rough edge to a piece of external plastic trim another. If this was not a review unit, I would have exchanged it and it may well be that we had a 'rogue' unit that escaped normal quality control.

Instructions are contained in a small leaflet and a brief colour recipe book is also included. Reference is made to an iPad app which was easily downloaded. Only slight snag was that the video commentaries were in French and my school level comprehension failed me. The videos are however very short and the Actifry is so simple to use that you can quickly get the basics by watching alone but surely the English speaking markets justify an English version? Over to Tefal....,

So we tried making chips with expectations rather low.

Just made my first chips and they were utterly delicious. Just like chip shop but without the fat. Being very careful as all other reviews say this machine is very delecate but so far am totally delighted with it.

I brought this because I was told to avoid foods high in phosphates, this includes oven chips! The chips it produces are very much like oven chips, perhaps a little better but the real revelation came when I tried some spicy chicken drum sticks, it was just brilliant at cooking meat and sausages. The whole device is very easy to clean though the paddle is prone to stains from spice mixes which are quite stubborn to remove.
I'm not totally convinced by the whole healthier way to fry argument, deep fat fryers, particularly those with a lard / sunflower oil mix, produce fried food that is full of flavor requiring little or no seasoning, hot air fryers on the other hand produce food that is on the bland end of the scale, particularly noticeable with chips, (it is the fat that provides a lot of the flavor after all), the result is that you compensate for this with lots of seasoning, particularly salt, thereby negating any possible benefits(also true of oven chips). This is not the case with foods that come with their own built in fat content, most meats, sausages, etc. this is where the Actifry really excels and there may be some real health benefits.
In conclusion; this is a great little device, I use it almost daily as it is by far the easiest and most convenient way to fry and I love experimenting with it, I have however purchased a deep fat fryer to cook my chips, I don't believe they will be any less healthy in the final analysis.
