From the manufacturer
ActiFry – Enjoy fluffy crispy chips and so much more
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.
Make the most of the dishes you prepare
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's patented technology
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 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.
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.

These things are so easy to use I'm amazed anyone would cook chips any other way; it's also much healthier, requiring only 14ml of oil. Many other foods can be cooked in this besides chips and a little recipe book does come with it, as well as an instruction manual and a measuring spoon for that small quantity of oil.
Apart from the economic and health benefits, the thing I most love about this is the lack of smell. Gone are those awful odours of cooking oil that seem to linger in the air long after you've not only cooked your chips, but eaten them and washed the greasy plates!
The removable parts of the machine – lid, metal bowl, paddle and filter – are dishwasher safe, which is always a real boon, especially for this sort of appliance.
A couple of things could have been improved in the eight or so years since I bought my first one:
1. The paddle, whilst dishwasher safe, is hollow and tends to gather small scraps of food
2. The timer is a bit daft in that the time can be increased but not decreased once started.
3. The controls are on the top, but at the back of the machine, which means leaning across to access them, and the buttons could perhaps be just a little bit bigger.
This is quite a heavy machine with most of the weight at the back of it, so if stored on a high shelf, as mine is, it does need careful handling. I always let mine cool right down before storing it. The outside also gets very hot, so keep it well away from small fingers.
I am really pleased with it and, apart from oven chips, this is my preferred way of cooking them. Oh – do try small, unpeeled, new potatoes in it. Delicious.
Apart from the already well known super chips (which I think are better if you use maris pipers potatoes, that I cut, drain, let dry for some seconds, put in the actifry for 10sec just to dry a little bit more, open again and put the oil, close and program for 30-45min, open at half way, just to take the vapour out, close again and let it finish) you can basically use your Actifry for almost everything else that you would put in a normal oven.
The recipes book, although very small, its a good starting point for you to start knowing what this machine can do for you and the rest, just be inventive. Most of the times you will need to take the paddle out, for instance when cooking fish fingers, hamburgers, cakes and muffins, basically, every time that you don't need things to be stir.
The only con, I have to say about this machine, is, if it was today, I would bought the latest one, Actifry 2 in 1, as you can use it to prepare a complete meal, all at the same time.
Yes there are health benefits from using less oil, as well as no oil steam/moisture/fat in the air when you want use any kind of lidless deep fryer.
Its handy when you want to cook Scampi, Fish Pieces, Chicken Nuggets, etc as well as Frozen Chips and if you take the time and effort to find the right potatoes, you do get crispy on the outside and fluffy and soft inside. For the latter it does require a bit of trial and error to find the right potatoes and also you need to pat dry the cut potato chip pieces to get the right texture and taste, yet it does pay dividends in terms of taste and health.
I will clearly state that the taste does depend on the type of potato and fried chips do taste nicer, however for skin on (our 5 year old boy won't even question the skin, now) spiced wedges , its awesome as well as for not needing to get the fryer out for frozen foods.
To use it properly you do need to put the frozen fish/chicken down rather than fling it in, yet the turning shovel bit , turns the food and as long as you have over filled it, all are turned well and do not break and crumble.
Its quick and for us, no oil fat in the air that means surfaces need to be wiped down.
