Tefal ActiFry Low Fat Electric Fryer, 1.5 kg - Black.
From the manufacturer
One of UK's Best-Selling Fryers
The Tefal ActiFry Family is the bigger model in the ActiFry range. Enjoyed by more than three million households world-wide, the Tefal ActiFry is the one of the best-selling fryers 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 and Delicious range from Tefal, which aims to produce products for people searching for healthier ways to cook, without compromising on taste. The new Family model has 50 per cent more capacity, so you can now cook 1.5 kg of chips, while still using just one spoonful of oil.
Healthy, Chips with just 3 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 per cent 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.
Patented Technology - Even Cooking and no Odour
The ActiFry Family has a patented hot air system and 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 a 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.
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.

After going to a friends using one of these fryers, we had to have one... and are not disappointed -- we now use it 3/4 times a week.
This fryer (Original 1.5kg) - is the perfect size for 4 people. Completely filled it takes around 30 mins to cook chips from potatoes (raw) -- we like them slightly crispy.
The taste is great compared to roasting alone. You can experiment with the amount oil to perfect the flavour (we didn't buy it for the "health" benefits and often use more than advised -- fat tastes good).
It's also super easy to clean. The frying element comes in two parts both of which can be wiped clean easily.
The machine works well and it doesn't take as long to cook chips as stated, they come out looking like chips and are golden.
The machine is easy to clean, and doesn't leave that horrible film of oil over everything. It feel well built but i can see some issues in the future with the paddle (the only part that feels flimsy), but as it stands it's been faultless.
BUT i hate the taste with a passion, the fat obviously makes chips, well chippy.
We have tried hard to like the thing with oven chips, fries etc but they always fall short.
One thing it has done is cut down a lot on my chip intake, we only now use it to cook the kids chips and im sorry to say we will probo purchase another deep fat fryer now - so in a way it has been healthier but not in the way we intended.
If you're like me and like real chips to taste like chips avoid this expensive gadget, it will end up gathering dust in a cupboard when you realise that the chips just don't taste right.
This replacement had been working fine for the last 7 months but a couple of days ago, where you insert the 240 volt lead into the unit, the female casing which forms part of the unit, just fractured and fell apart exposing bare wires which were now ""arcing" with the electricity. We turned power off at the mains immediately.
Again, we notified Amazon and in less than 12 hours, they have fully refunded our money - 5 ***** to Amazon.
We are only a family of 3 (inc a 12 year old son). We probably only use the unit once a week and, even then, only cook a small quantity of chips, so we certainly don't use the unit heavily.
It's a shame because when it works, it is great. However, reading other reviews it would seem that cracking of the plastic is a recurring problem. It's not a cheap product so we would expect a longer useful life than 7 months. Our decision now is do we buy a 3rd or try a different model?
So what improvements have Tefal made?
Well, for one, being 50% larger, it's more versatile. As my old Mum used to say, what will hold a lot, will hold a little.
The timer is much improved, in that it actually stops the fryer at the end of the required cooking time. You may be surprised to hear that the original Actifry doesn't.
The Actifry Family also has a nice deep bowl, so if you want to make a curry or a stew, you can do so with confidence.
The original Actifry has a big hole in the middle, so it's quite difficult to do that, and not make a horrible mess.
Finally, the Actifry Family has a removable ring at the top of the bowl. This stops stuff overflowing the top of the bowl and keeps everything clean and tidy.
We loved our old Actifry, and used it almost ever day, but the Actifry Family is a big improvement, and we're glad we "upgraded".
