Practical and Clean

The heat source in all the different models is a conventional heating element, so it should be reliable, but not have the instant heat that a halogen heater has.  The biggest capacity models Family has measurements:  12-1/2″L x 16-1/2″W x 7-1/2″H  be sure to measure up your  work surface, these are surprisingly large appliances. No smelly kitchen anymore after use ! The actifry models have a good effective filter system, so the frying odour doesn’t linger for days afterwards like with deep oil frying.

Low Fat Frying

The Airfrying method was thought up, to lower the amount of fat used and the fat needed to cook with. The Tefal Actifry units typically fry in one spoonful of oil , which is over 200 times less than a traditional 3 liter deep fat fryer. The resulting food is much lower in fat, in fact the french fries have only 3% fat per serving . This is substantially more healthy plus you always use fresh oil in the actifry and as you don’t have to renew a 3 liter capacity deep fryer, it will save a lot of money. Despite the relatively high price, the unit will produce great results and pay for itself in a reasonable time.

Versatile Menus

The Actifry is not restricted to chips or french fries, you can roast vegetables, where the paddle is especially good, the veg tumbles around, cooking evenly. Risotto is very easy, pork or beef stir frys, seafood, gumbo or chili are all quick and totally automatic.  The Actifry is also good with desserts

What Actifry Buyers review of their purchase…

I think this is a great item for people like my friend who want to make a nice meal without a lot of fuss

I’ve owned an Actifry for about three weeks and used it a dozen times. It DOES make good fries. But they’re not as good as the best fries you’ve ever eaten. In fact, I can make better fries at home using the Belgian double fry method. But the clean up and unhealthiness of double frying had made french fries at my house a rare event.

It really does make good fries. Better than most restaurants out there

It’s much better than a fryer. It’s more like a self-stirring roasting oven or saute pan. I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and expect our use to increase as I continue to find new things to cook in it.

Too bad we didn’t have one of these when the kids were still in high school. They would have LOVED to be able to make a small batch of wings (tater tots, fries,egg rolls, etc…) as a snack

You can also make delicious sweet potato fries (my favorite – I am vegan). You can make potato wedges with any sort of spices you like. It works great with spiced fingerling potatoes…mmm. It also makes FABULOUS and easy stir-fry…. just throw whatever you want in basically.

We have used this every single day since we got it. I never knew before that there were so many frozen prepared foods that can be used in this. I’ve made delicious asian dishes in this almost every other day from premade frozen foods such as breaded chicken pieces, stir fry vegitables and sweet and sour sauce, or other asian sauces, some made from scratch
