T-fal ActiFry Review – Frying the Healthier Way
The Tefal Actifry Air Fryer is a revolutionary new product which allows you to enjoy tasty, traditional, home cooked french fries, but at the same time stay healthy and feel good about what you are eating.
The Actifry Fryer is part of the Nutritious & Delicious range from Tefal which aims to produce innovative products for people searching for healthier ways to cook without compromising on taste.
By using just one spoonful of oil you can make 1kg of homemade french fries, which is enough to feed a family of four. That one spoonful is 100 times less than a traditional deep fat fryer, which not only means that your food is substantially more healthy, but it is also more economical and is also 100% safe, unlike some traditional methods of frying.
Simply load up to 1kg of freshly cut french fries into the Actifry, 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.
The Tefal Actifry Fryer requires no pre-heating, its ready when you are, and better yet, it’s not just french fries you can cook. The versatile Actifry allows you to cook a range of foods including meat, fish, stir fried vegetables, frozen french fries and more. A recipe book is included for more ideas.
The Actifry has an odorless filter which means that your kitchen will stay as fresh as it was when you started cooking.
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 you ingredients and let them cook. The mixing arm also ensures even cooking of your food. The automatic lid opens at the push of a button for your convenience.
Once you finished cooking your food, the cover, basket and vanes can all be removed and are all dishwasher-safe. That’s everything you need to wash up taken care of. You can then sit and enjoy real chips, crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, safe in the knowledge that they only contain 3% fat.

Actifry – Hot Air Cooking
The Actifry uses a hot air system to cook your food. This circulates hot air around the food and ensures it is cooked evenly and it also gives you the crisp texture you look for in your fried food.
The Actifry hot air system combines with a rotating paddle that moves the food around the cooking pan, and this combination ensures that the food is evenly cooked during cooking. The hot air system used in the Tefal Actifry also means that there is no preheating of the appliance, so you are ready to cook straight away without any waiting for the Actifry to heat up.
