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.
Simply load up to 1kg of freshly cut chips 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.

Or get some oven chips, no peeling. Done.
#2
These are good for a lot more than just chips!

Good deal
#3
This is actually a really good piece of kit - much nicer than over chips and easy to use. Voted hot.
#4
Anyone got one of these? What do you reckon, any good?

Might be tempted at £50 but still overpriced IMO.

They're absolutely fantastic actually - the taste of the food, crispness and the fact it uses less than 1 teaspoon making it healthier that other frying alternatives all add up to a good device. Oh and they're really fast too.. stuff like mccains ovens fries takes approx 5-6 mins.

I got mine from Costco, paid a little under 100 quid (inc vat) if I recall correctly - not sure if they still sell em.

I think it's great.

seriously 20mins. Does that include the time for the oil to heat up or just to cook the chips?

You only use a small amount of oil. It takes no time at all to heat up.

Still do 'em in Costco for just over £100 with the VAT...

Not as quick as a fryer (once oil has heated anyway) but much quicker than oven chips which always seem to take twice as long as the packet suggests! (And possibly less fat) have more of a fried flavour which is nice. Also great for Wedges, Chicken Nuggets (home made and bought) and Ikea Meatballs too :thumbsup:

how these work is by getting a t-spoon of oil and sprinkling on the chips and then switching on the fryer- so really ideal for chips only

dont think reckon suitable for fish etc as the inside will be uncooked!
#14
i have one of these and I think its fab. Like other folk i purchased mine from costco for a little under £100 quid. I have to say that the timings given for chips in this discussion is not accurate, imho and in the accompanying books directions. It takes nearer 40-45 minutes for 1kg of fresh cut chips to be made properly. This is quite a while but when i'm making food i just cut the chips in advance and put them into the machine. You don't need to do anything to them apart from add a small amount of oil. Actually there is one other thing the chips should be as dry as possible before putting them into the machine.

As for comparing them to oven chips i could not go back to oven chips now they are simply awful by comparison. If your a chip lover and want a healthy low fat fresh cut chip experience this is the gadget to deliver the goods.

Hope this helps. I use mine alot, its also very easy to clean.

Fish cooks fine, as does most things that can be fried / baked etc. though you sprinkle the oil on the heat vaporises it and ensures everything gets a fine coating.

Plus its safe,no kids going get burned on hot oil or yourself for that matter,no chip pan fires,no smell,less mess,really easy to clean unlike normal deep fat fryers or doing on a stove and the oil splashing evrywhere.

Good point, my 4 yr old son loves to help cook, he can put chips in the Actifry, wouldn't dream of letting him near a chip pan (not that I'd have one, big smelly dangerous things that they are)

Ok it's quite expensive, but not a lot more than a top end donestic fryer!

Also really good if you like seasoning on your chips, just sprinkle it on with the oild and it mixes nicely, my favourite is Cajun at the moment!

What 45 mins for chips????

Great for the electricity bill...

70p a small bag from the chippy. No grease, no electricity cost, no oil costs....



Good price from RRP, but still too expensive.

Great find & price - ordered mine!

Quick question for those who have deep fat fryers - would they work for battered sausages of the sausage is not cooked when thrown in?

I think it would be a good idea to cook the sausage 1st,just I'm thinking of when I do a Veggie toad in hole,i stick my sausages under the gril to thaw out and cook a bit,before i put them in the yorkshire pud tins.
Also with being meat,you need ensure your meat is cooked properly.
#22
Sounds good, although it still seems quite a lot of money. They have come down in price though overall. Any weightwatchers people out there who have got /used one? Just wondered how the points stystem would work ie. Would it be significantly different using this to oven chips?

I would have thought about same really points system,but surely it be a good idea if you were to on some diet not to have chips very often,or switch to sweet potatoes cos overall more nutritious,and for long term results too.

Don't go to the ww meetings anymore, and as you suggest we don't have chips very often, but just wondered how they compared as I do still try to follow the main rules. Very rare we have anything fried as at all, but my little boys do love Nannas home made chips and wondered what the difference would be. Cheers Niki:thumbsup:

About 4 points for a potato and 4 points for a table spoon of olive oil (if you were cooking one potato as chips you'd probably use less)

We're all missing the big question here people!

Can it do Mars bars?

Hmm 70p...that gets you half a kilo of potatoes AND you're drinking half a litre of oil which has been reheated a 100 times.

That is, if they use oil...might be lard...

But surely the point of the machine is that you can make chips that taste great but use very little oil (hence are not much more calories than boiled potatoes)?

So even if your on a diet you CAN have chips every night!!!!!!!!:p Now thats my kinda diet!!

How long do you think before Asda and the like do a copy one? I really want one but concerned it ends up in the cupboard with my george foreman grill, bread maker, ice cream maker and breville!
#30
I have one of these and its fantastic, like someone said above once you try the chips this thing cooks you wont go back to boring oven ones.

If you own one, try Bananas :thumbsup: chop them into slices, a sprinkle of brown sugar and then put some icecream on top :) you wont regret it.

yeh lol,but even say boiled potatoes,I think if your on a diet maybe avoid having too many potatoes,cos being a carb and all,even though it's a veg it's not the most nutrious veg you can have.Just I know I tend to eat potato of some kind every day and I'm overweight lol,so I bet spuds don't help.

I only got this gadget for kitchen,this Braun multi blender thing,I've had since 2000 and thats been used plenty times for baby food and other stuff it comes in handy for and still working,I don't even own a toaster or microwave.
So like I'm not a gadget buyer,this Actifry is seriously good.

We were at Costco a couple of weeks ago (Milton Keynes) and found this for a very cheap price (I think it was £60). We snapped one as my wife had her eyes on one and she knew it's £150 everywhere.

It may have been a mis-price but if you're a Costco member it might be worth having a look.

As one of the people said here, it's excellent but not for £150 or even £100 - I think what we paid for it is what it's worth.

We just had one comment about it, it's got what looks like blades (but no sharp ones) that roll all the time so not suitable for very delicate food items. For example, if you use it with Samosa it will spill all the contents out by the time it's finished. For other stuff like chips it's excellent.

£99 including VAT at Costco in Gateshead..... has been for about 6 months now!
#36
No doubt this is a great bit of kit but, this is how to make great tasting fries with NO oil and save yourself £100. This method isn't due to costs, but more of a way to prevent heart disease and lower cholesterol:

Red or white potatoes, sliced thin, spray them with low sodium tamari or Bragg liquid Aminos.

Preheat the oven to 350 F

Arrange chips on a baking sheet, bung them in the oven for 30 Minutes-longer if you like them crispy.

Serve with ketchup! Done.

I set fire to some olive oil today niice :-/

I am on my second Actifry machine now as the first machine, at 6 days old started to turn anti clock wise and it mashed up all the food. The second machine has just started to do it at 9 days old, I was wondering if anyone out there has had the same problem. It seems a bit odd that 2 should do it so soon after buying it.
Its a great machine when it works properly, I find the best thing is sausages, they come out really evenly cooked and browned and best of all no constant turning.
I paid £117.00 and I searched the net and couldn't find cheaper any where so £99.99 is a great deal.

I don't eat chips for the simple fact that I can't be a***d to peal the potatoes so just eat rice and pasta.

So does any know where you can buy chopped potatoes (chips) in a bag?

I know the catering trade have them but is there anywhere retail that sell them.
