1.0 out of 5 stars Not up to the job, 13 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tefal Acti-Fry AL800240 Low Fat Electric Fryer, 1 kg Capacity, Black, OLD (Kitchen & Home)
I ordered this without checking the reviews first, but did so whilst I was waiting for it to arrive. I therefore knew that some people had had problems with it, and resolved to treat it gently.

I looked after it very carefully, but it wasn't long before I noticed that a crack had appeared on the lid. This didn't affect the performance, but I was baffled as to how it could have got there, the way I'd been babying the thing.

Then after about six months - of not-very-frequent use, and never with large portions - the 'paddle' snapped halfway through cooking. Just stirring a small helping of mixed root-veg chips was more than it could handle. So back it went.

Whilst it was working, I liked it very much. But clearly the materials are just not up to the high temperatures generated. And don't make the mistake that I did, of thinking that it's a matter of how you treat it - it isn't. The build is simply not fit for purpose. A great pity.
