“Tefal Actifry”

When the Actifry first came out I wasn't too fussed about getting one, however after hearing friend after friend rave about how good they are, I did start looking into getting one. The concept seemed great - a low fat electric fryer which cooked tasty, healthy chips. As someone who watches their...

Why Buy an Actifry? Having not possessed a deep fat fryer in our household for a number of years and rarely eating chips from the chip shop we either didn't bother at all or made do with the oven cooked variety. Whilst the oven ones are nice they're not the same as home-made chips and I did miss...

“Lot fat cooking!”

published 29/01/2013

ProVery little fat needed to cook with.

ContraCan get very hot, quite a bulky unit.

After my deep fat fryer finally died, i managed about two months before realising i needed a replacement....quickly! After a peruse at my local electricals store i was pleased to find that the holy grail of fryers (in my opinion anyway!) was at that time being sold for half price (£90.00), with...

“Come Actifry with me!”

published 15/09/2012

ProGreat food, great product

Contrathe size of the product

lets face it, we all love a good portion of chips with our meals from time to time, but always resent the amount of fat and oil that goes into them if we don't oven cook them. The product is the key to removing all that resentment. This fryer has the goal of cooking foods such as chips in a new...

ProOnly uses 1 spoon of oil

ContraExpensive

We've owned our actifry for around 8 months now, when we bought it I think it was around £140, I've seen it for sale for around £120 recently. The actifry's biggest selling point is because it only uses 1 spoon of oil to cook with. We do like chips in our house but my partner likes them in the...

“Guilt-free chips!!”

published 09/01/2014

ProCreates yummy, low fat food

ContraBit noisy and bulky

I was quite lucky to get my Actifry for free! My Mum bought one and then upgraded it to an air fryer almost straight away - handing the 'old' one down to me at the same time. For anyone who hasn't seen one of these it's basically a cooking implement which cooks many different food types using...

ContraBland rather dry chips and expensive item to boot

I purchased this Actrifry around 18 months ago for £109 at Lakeland. The reason being my deep fat fryer needed replacing and I had heard good things about the this before seeing it on special offer in store. After a bit of umming and arrhing (as even then at that price I needed to be sure I could...

Contraa little noisy

The Tefal Actifry is a revolutionary way to cook food. We first bought the Actifry on a recommendation from a friend who had bought one. They had explained to us how good the machine was and how easy it was to use, so we did the usual and searched online for one. We bought ours for £80, a little...

If you read through my over reviews you'll find a lot that were Christmas presents. This one is the same (We got a lot of kitchen appliances). This machine is truly the best invention when it comes to frying. For years we have got the deep fat fryer out of the cupboard which left a very bad black...

Tefal ActiFry Low Fat Electric Fryer It's these days more and more about healthy eating and it's a trend I'm trying to keep up with, as long as it is easy. I don't like cooking so you don't see me a lot in the kitchen but I do like food of course. We out a lot of take away food and that's not...

Although I like to eat clean, it can sometimes be tricky when you HATE cooking. Or even worse, despise washing up afterwards. Well with this product, I found I barely had to do either. Again, with some of the other products I have reviewed, I was very sceptical about spending this much money on a...

ContraA little slow at frying, very expensive!

We bought this after the mass of advertising Tefal slapped across television, magazines, posters, the internet and pretty much anywhere else they could put their logo. We thought that the fact that you could fry chips using just a single spoon of oil to be very innovative and a great feature. So...

Years back when I was a teenager I used to eat what I wanted and was a perfect size 10. Now at 33 the pounds have crept on and I can no longer eat what I want without piling on the pounds. I have to watch what I eat and am conscious of calories and fat in my food. So when I saw this advertised on...

ContraNoisy, Unreliable

I have used the Tefal Actifry several times a week for the last 5 years and have been very happy with the results but disappointed with the reliability, as the first 2 have broken after about 2 years of use. The Actifry is very simple to use for chips. Oven chips can be put straight in, and most...

I bought Tefal actifry almost two years ago and i love it! I love it so much I gave it as a Christmass present to my sister :) The price; I paid only £99 for my 1.2 Kg actifry at argos. When I bought it few months after for my little sister, from the same shop, it was £129. Despite the price...
