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 all-round cooking results.
The healthier way to fry: Fluffy crispy chips with just 3 per cent 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 overall 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 Celsius to ensure high-quality 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.

Here are some of the features that I like and like less:
FEATURES I LIKE
* The ActiFry fryer cooks food evenly and with relatively little fat. I end up using perhaps half as much oil as I would use if I was putting something in the oven. Of course, I use a great deal less oil than if I were frying in a deep fat fryer.
* The fryer is surprisingly light (despite being quite bulky looking). This is an advantage for our household because we don't actually have the space to leave it out on a counter surface. We have to put it in a cupboard and get it out when we want to use it.
* The fryer is very easy to clean. The pan detaches easily from the fryer and is covered in non-stick material. The plastic lid detaches easily and can be cleaned easily too. Another good thing is that there is hardly any cleaning required. As there is very little fat spraying about, the inside of the lid does not need cleaning every time.
FEATURES I LIKE LESS
* I was surprised that there is a moderately loud fan noise from the machine. As the appliance blasts hot air over food, it must suck in and expel air. So there is some fan noise.Read more ›
I also did egg fried rice in this and it turned out beautifully. I made a quick fried rice omelette and chopped it then just dumped it in the fryer with cooled cooked rice, frozen onion, frozen peas, chopped ham, five spice and a good dash of Teriyaki (you can use soy. I just like the flavour) I added an Actifry spoonful of olive oil and let the machine get on with it. A couple of tablespoons of water added part way through the cooking time kept the rice moist and it came out perfectly in less than 12 minutes. The bit I can't do with fried rice is keep everything moving enough so that nothing catches which the Actifry does with it's paddle. By using frozen chopped ingredients there was no effort at all.Read more ›
This fryer enables me to make a kilo of chips in about 40 minutes, with good, tasty results - the whole family love them.
To airfry you put food into the bowl, add a small amount of oil with the supplied measuring spoon (14ml for 1 kilo of chips) and press the on button. There's a very basic digital timer and buzzer integrated into the lid which you can set to sound. Mainly though you can see if food is ready by looking through the large viewing window on the top of it it - my daughter and I find it strangely fascinating watching the chips getting churned around. As long as you make sure your potatoes are as dry as possible when you add them the chips have a little bit of crunch to them. They are tasty and not oily and evenly cooked, presumably thanks to all that churning. It's a bit noisy when working in all honesty but the cool wall works quite well. It's more compact than I thought it would be on the work surface and a good point is that there it is really simple to clean.
There is a fold down handle which allows the whole bowl to be lifted out for serving. The manual says this can be put in the dishwasher - I've stuck to hand-washing mine. Along with the manual you also get some recipe ideas. Besides chips (either your own prepared from potatoes or the ready made type) there are other suggestions such as risotto, squid and vegetables. You can't use it to make anything high on liquid. There are more recipes on the Tefal site - these probably betray the Acifry's French origins - "Burgundy Snails with Chervil and Stewed Courgettes" anyone? No, me neither!Read more ›
