Spotted this at Costco the other day, cheapest I can find on the internet is £113. The Tefal Actifry is a revolutionary new product which allows you to enjoy tasty, traditional, home cooked chips, but at the same time stay healthy and feel good about what you are eating.

The Actifry 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 chips, 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.
Tefal have come up with a winning solution of having tasty home cooked chips with only 3% fat. The revolutionary new ActiFry which is part of the Tefal Nutritious & Delicious range, allows you to cook 1kg of chips (family of four) with just 1 spoonful of oil. You can even use the oil of your choice from olive oil to rapeseed oil. And you can cook a lot more than just chips - the ActiFry comes with a Free recipe book which allows you to cook a variety of meals with vegetables, meat, fish and even fruit! With a large viewing window so you can oversee the cooking, and a non-stick, removeable bowl for easy cleaning, the ActiFry is convenient and easy to use. Tefal, ideas you can't live without. Tefal's product design communicates the brand's identity: They are ingenious and guarantee success. They are useable by everybody in the family. They are pleasant to use. They find their place in various styles of living environments.

[SIZE=2]Great product but you'd have to eat a tonne of chips to recoup your investment of £99. [/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]There's an easier way to make healty chips in the oven and a spoon full of olive oil, just remember to keep tossing them so they don't stick. [/SIZE]

Only 70% say "great" - I'm desperate to know what the other 30% said now. :thumbsup:

got one of these and its fantastic - chips taste like real chips you can also cook other items in it aswell (you get a receipe book with it). I have tried to cook chips in the oven with oil but they dont taste no way as good as this. It was worth the money for us as none of the family like oven chips and I cant stand the smell of deep fat fryers.
#7
I cut a potato into wedges, spray with oil and roast for 45 minutes. Fab chips! ;-)
#8
no costco near me, what website is doing it for £113 ?

Cheers !
#10
Thanks for letting us know about this, we've just been to Cosco and picked one up. Thinking chicken and chips for tea - a meal suitable for a king.
#11
no problem, just used it myself for the first time tonight, and the chips dont taste half bad, recommended ;-)

I've tried loads of different potatoes and found King Edwards make the best chips and stop using olive oil as did'nt seem to get hot enough and bought mazola corn oil and the chips are to die for and i don't like chips .

Why is this supposed to be healthy? Not being too silly, but when I fry chips, I pour about a litre of fat or oil into a saucepan, and then fry. But when I finish, I pour about a litre of oil out of the pan and back into it's container. I don't know how much I use, but one 5ml teaspoon doesn't sound out of order....

So is this really any healthier?

#15
Okay - answered my own question; yes, it is healthier! Not sure why, but there's a huge drop in the calories; a 100g portion of chips has 22 calories from the fat element, deep fried chips have 73.

From memory it was £99 all in. I remember thinking it was £50 cheaper.

How long does it take to cook chips on this as read a review online from someone who purchased it saying it took 40 minutes to do some chips

How much is Costco individual membership?

Thanks
#21
£99.86, just went out and bought one. Yet to use it but its dishwasher safe at least. Anyone know any sites that have recipes for use with it?
#22
It says the chips must be dry, so can you cook frozen ones?
#23
If it also does spring rolls and samosas, it's a bargain
#24
Can't wait for the shops to open, so I can go buy some stuff to use in it. Thinking about getting this to safe time:-

Not sure about the price of costco membership because they always add it on to the shopping when its due, probably around 20 quid. Its worth it because you have complete peace of mind, if the item stops working they refund you the money. They are also quite a bit cheaper for some things as your buying in bulk.
#27
Not everyone can become a member.
#28
Yeah I think its £20 per year and if you want to have a guest on your membership allowing them to shop there with their own card its £12 for them. So if you know someone with a costco membership you can get a membership card of your own for £12 I think.
#29
Thanks very much.

Other benefits of costco membership I can think off:

cheap dinners (a few quid) with as many refills of soft drinks as you want
cheap photo printing for memory cards etc
cheap motoring accessories - i.e. cash shampoo, wonder wheels
cheap michelin tyres but not so sure of the fitting service
if your hoover or whatever goes wrong even after a year they will refund you the money

One problem is there is no delivery service, so you have to lug the heavy stuff (washing machines, big tvs) out the store and arrange some kind of van hire.

No, you have to ring them up and get a quote. Sometimes they give out a 20% off voucher which lowers the price a bit. They won't supply michelin pilot cup sports or anything like that.

Watford and Milton keynes have a delivery service, advertised in store....done by another company whose name escapes me, but they were very good. You do have to go and pay for it, but then you take your goods to a desk and let them know you want it delivered you then get a number to call and arrange a suitable time.

Do you know how they compare to online suppliers like blackcircle?

Costco is probably cheaper than black circle, or at least it was when I bought tyres from them however mytyres.co.uk is probably the cheapest. I noticed that there is a lot of variation in tyre prices place to place, event mobile is quite cheap for some tyres and they also come to your house or place of work to fit them.

If your after high performance tyres then camskill.co.uk are quite competitive. Also candstyres.com sell toyo r888 cheaper than anywhere I think. But both these places require you to have them fitted yourself.
#36
What most people do with normal cars is wait until costco give out their discount vouchers each year, then the tyres are probably the cheapest fitted. Not sure but I don't think there is any restriction also for when you can have them fitted, you can take the tyres home and bring them back when you need them fitted.
#37
My Michelin for my Polo cost £47 inc fitting.

The tyre discount they give out once or twice a year is 20% off if you buy four tyres.
#38
Interesting - I also like the Tefal 3 second kettle.

Too dear though, I will wait a year for the inevitable supermarket price squeeze.
#39
Can purchase one on eBay for around £125 delivered, which may help those not near a costco or not wanting a costco membership or without a costco membership.

Does this product do more than "make chips"?
