“I've had my chips!”

I first came across the Tefal Actifry about 2 years ago whilst attending slimming world. Every month or so the group would enjoy a tasting evening when members bought along food made using slimming world recipes. One member prepared chips using her Actifry and I was amazed at how good they tasted...

Recipe book, timer, easy to clean

Still not the same as my fish shop chips!

My partner and me have just purchased our first house together and so we have bought a few gadgets for the kitchen. One in particular we couldn’t live without is the “Tefal Actifry”. We have both been avoiding chips for a while now because we are trying our best to be healthier. So chips before...

Healthy quick and tasty food

It has a serious safety issue.

The Tefal Actifry - a revolutionary way to cook chips, all the flavour without the fat...Sounds Good Eh ? After much deliberation, and faced with a rapidly expanding waistline, I decided to buy a Tefal Actifry, I had read all the claims and decided that although very expensive for a fryer, Tefal...

Expensive. Noisy.

I am always looking for ways to make cooking healthier for me and my family and after someone recommended the Tefal Actifry Low Fat Electric Fryer to me, I thought it sounded like something that could be very beneficial and useful to me. I bought it from Amazon for £128.99, which was considerably...

“Chips for tea”

great chips

none so far

I have just bought a Tefal FZ 7000 Actifry for £120 from Ebay and it arrived today, so I thought i'd let you know what my thoughts are on the handy little gadget. I quite like it to be honest and have read some reviews previously which have been negative about the Actifry, but so far I am happy...

“A healthy chip buttie?”

published 24/05/2008

lovely healthy crispy chips

expensive

The Hype Imagine being able to fry a batch of real home-made chips with just a tablespoon of olive oil. Sounds too good to be true? Place up to a kilo of freshly cut chips into the cooking pan, then measure your preferred oil with the scoop provided, pour it over, and set the timer. Patented...

Quite expensive.

Sometimes I want to have a dinner that is simple to cook and yet one that my husband and I are going to enjoy. This is probably why my Mum picked me up this Tefal Actifry for Christmas 2011. I had been admiring them for a while and felt that the price tag was a little high yet naturally I was...

Ease of use, ease of cleaning, fantastic results.

First one didn't last as long as I'd hoped.

Here I review the Tefal Actifry. It's the most wonderful kitchen gadget ever - and I 'love' kitchen gadgets. I purchased my first Tefal Actifry almost 3 years ago as I was on 'another' diet. Please be aware this is not just for those of us who want to lose weight - it makes the most fantastic...

Super

Easy to use, produces yummy food, easy to clean

Expensive!

After seeing the Actifry advertised at a reduced price of £110 I rushed out and bought one. I count calories religously and have heard endless positive reviews about the great quality and how low fat the chips are, with a tiny 3% fat in each portion. My first impression of the acti fry was the...

Blew up in black smoke.

This chippan produces some absolutely lovely and healthy chips. However our disappeared in a puff of black smoke one day, and died a dismal death. (One month out of guarantee of course!). Quick nosy around google, and talking to the shop and this is apparantently a common complaint. The chips...

“Tefal Acti Fry”

published 08/09/2008

use little oil

easy to break no repair

I bought this to cook chips but it takes to long 35-40 mins but they are not worth the wait to dried up . It does chicken wings great in 30 mins it also does have a recipe book some of them work others do not. The let downs of the fryer are the plastic clear lid the clips that keep lid closed are...

published 14/10/2007

I purchased Actifry from Lakeland and could'nt wait to try it out. The chips came out ok but I found them a bit dry.Cooking time is about 40 min. I also tried the recipe for chilli con carne but got terribly disappointed. The meat turned chewy and hard ,vegetables tasted undone and kidney beans turned very dry.Overall was'nt great. In addition to that the machine gets very hot dispite the fact that the packaging says cool to touch. If you are prepared to spend £150 to enjoy healthy chips then go for it. Otherwise if you expect more than that I think you will be disappointed.

“Tefal Actifry”

published 23/10/2007

Not just for healthy chips.

40 minutes to cook chips, but worth the wait.

Yes, it takes forty minutes to cook a kilo of chips but they are delicious and very healthy. You don't have to feel guilty about eating chips, and they are certainly much better for you than chip shop, frozen or oven chips - and much crisper in my experience. I "forgot" to dry my chips before I...

None

I was thinking about buying one of the Tefal Actifrys for sometime about 1 year to be exact. I was not disappointed at all and it is fantastic. You must ensure though that you really rinse the potatoes well to get rid of the starch and not only that dry the potatoes before you add them to the...
