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.

The device itself is relatively simple. It's either on or off and there is a countdown timer. Heat comes from an element at the back and is blown over the contents of an inner pan which contains a rotating paddle to gently stir / turn the contents. The parts of the pan come apart so they can be put in a dishwasher. The pan has a detachable plastic collar which seems pretty flimsy and it's not clear what it's mean for or why it couldn't be part of the pan itself. One criticism is that it has a very large surface footprint, protruding forward quite a bit because of the position of the heater / fan at the back.
The main benefit of this device would be for people who use a deep fat fryer predominantly for chips and are fed up with the smell, changing oil and all the gunk. And of course all the oil that ends up in the food. The Actifry is far simpler in every respect. I don't think there is a clear case for people who eat oven chips since they only have 3-5% oil in them anyway and cook easily in an oven.
Aside from cooking chips the Actifry can be used for stir-fry style dishes - tip the things in as you would with a wok and cook until they're done. You could probably use an Actifry to cook some other deepfried items - wedges, roast potatoes, drumsticks, sausages etc. It would be no use for anything which is battered or loosely breaded though.
If you have an old fat fryer and use it regularly i would strongly recommend buying this as a replacement.
I was so excited to receive this Actifry even though the one supplied is the Actifry Original and not the Actifry Plus. I understood from the name and product information that this machine is for frying food one usually fries, but in minimal fat. This is not quite so.
The quick-start leaflet is in a 6pt-font so I had to squint hard to decipher it. The ‘quick instructions for use’ are not set down in a clear one-two-three fashion; I needed my magnifying glass to read the Table of Cooking Times. 45 minutes to cook chips? 35 minutes to cook courgettes?
I turned to the recipe booklet (which has twelve recipes) but there is only the ‘Real Home-Made Fries’ that is a straightforward affair. The recipe for calamari takes 25 minutes to cook plus prep time and suggests we serve the squid with Actifry chips (which take 45 minutes). How do we juggle cooking both these things in one machine? The photographs in the recipe book show food that is puzzling: breadcrumbed chicken breasts with no mention of the breadcrumb coating in the instructions, or neat onion rings where the recipe states, ‘dice the onion.’
I had a go at the chips: peeled, cut, washed, dried the potatoes, put them into the cooking bowl and sprinkled with the oil.Read more ›
