The Tefal ActiFry 2 in 1 Fryer is an awesome must have kitchen gadget. Just bear in mind that there are only two adults that I cook for so I don't know if it would be sufficient for larger families. The more you get used to using it the more you realise what you can do with it. Don't think of it as a healthy chip fryer, it is that but it can do so much more. It does frozen chips/fries/curly fries equally well and also home made chips/fries etc. I've found that you don't really need any oil on frozen chips/fries and I've also found if you are cooking let's say chips in the bottom and onion rings on the top then leave the top plate out until it is time for the onion rings to go in, I find that if you don't the chips won't be as crispy as I like them to be. You're looking at about twenty minutes or so for thinner things like frozen fries and about thirty minutes for thicker chips. I hardly ever use the oven any more which takes an age to heat up and an age to cool down and also you're heating an area way bigger than you need for the food you're cooking. The fryer has quite a large footprint and isn't quiet but I'd say it's quieter than my fan assisted oven plus there is no heating up and cooling down period so I'd assume this will cost less on the electric bill. It is a breeze to clean - it truly is non stick and everything comes out or off with ease. This is one of those products that makes me wish I'd bought it years ago. You want sausage sandwiches? Frozen sausage on the top plate 15 minutes boom! No mess and far less smell than frying or grilling. Once you start experimenting you'll find plenty of ways to cook different foods, it's just a new way of cooking that is so easy. I wouldn't be without my Tefal 2 in 1 ActiFry.
