Tefal Actifry Plus, 1.2 Kg, Grey (New model) £94.99 @ Amazon

Found 13th Nov 2013
PRICE IS FLUCTUATING BETWEEN £94.99 - £84.99

Been waiting for another one of these to pop up relatively cheap and here it is after mine went bang (older model). There's certainly some discussion on the quality of these, but that has mainly been with the older version, the one with the much larger clear plastic area looking in.

This is the new 1.2KG model. I believe there has been 3 different versions of the Actifry 1/1.2Kg model with this being the 3rd revision of the 1.2Kg model.

amazon.co.uk/Tef…fry

Worth doing a Flubit on this, took another 12% off the price (when it was at £94.99) for me using demographics of 30-39 Female/Other Reason.
Total: £83.90
Inc. VAT & Delivery

If you don't want to miss out on the already good price of £94.99 though from a delayed Flubit pending demand, you can always order it on a card that you know amazon will decline and then submit new card details if needs be later.



Healthy: 1 spoon of oil for 1.2kg of real crispy chips
Nutritious: new oil each time you cook, preserving nutritional quality
Versatile: cook chips, curries, stews, stir-fries, chicken, desserts... and more
No need to shake or stir during cooking as the ActiFry has a unique stirring paddle to ensure food is evenly-cooked
Easy to clean: ActiFry's spoon and removable bowl, lid and paddle are dishwasher safe.

How many watts do these things use?
Could be a bit expensive on the old electricity bill....

Quite the opposite, less than a cooker.

When I got mine a couple of years ago it came with a little recipe book and I tried the suggested recipe for chilli using the Actifry. It was lovely. I've made it quite a few times now and it always goes down well. Home made chips are perfect - I use Maris Pipers for the best results. Sausages, drumsticks, etc also turn out great.

****, paid £135 for this, albeit a year ago... I can heartily recommend this slightly bigger one, my mum has the normal 1kg one and she is forever commenting how much better mine is with the extra space

oh

Carrots, roast carrots to die for in these machines, do them with Roast Potatoes

Do they give off a smell when cooking like a deep fat fryer?That's why I threw my fryer out.

All of which could be done more healthily with a grill or something!

Also...

"Nutritious: new oil each time you cook, preserving nutritional quality"

Some people will buy into anything!

Best selling small domestic appliance in the UK, says a lot!

Is this better than the Phillips one posted last week?

Once you've had a go with one, probs wouldn't take that hostile attitude (the "looking for a problem" type post, do it myself sometimes, not having a dig but try using one, will likely change your opinion)

In terms of results, yes. Most would say so.

In terms of quality of product, the actifry has taken a massive amount of deserved flak for them failing just outside the 12 months warranty. Having said that, these complaints have been aimed primarily at the first revision and somewhat at the 2nd...not really heard many complaints about the current model but it hasn't been around a year yet so who knows lol.

To be fair, and I'm fuming mine broke just outside the 12 months, it did earn the £100 paid for it in that time imo. They really are a revelation when you first try it out and I'm happy to chance it again on the new model...actually miss it...which isn't something can say for most the junk accumilated thanks to hukd over the years.

Currys are also the same price as Amazon.

HOT HOT HOT I love y actifry

This could take the space of the bread maker that I never use, but I know I'd just end up not using this thing either.

A curry tastes good in this too!

It's obvious they've fixed one of the main issues with this new model... the clear plastic on the lid used to warp and crack over time. On my first one the plastic actually went soft like toffee and snapped, I think there was a problem with the circulation which was creating a hot spot on the lid. My new one is still going strong, but the clear plastic does have some cracks in it.

They've now made the window smaller and put a more heat-resistant plastic on all the stress points.

thank you op

So annoying paid £110 two days ago just been delivered with amazon prime half an hour ago not even out of the box. Aarrggh !!

Many comments about failing after 12 months have put me off...

Anyone find that a lot of the stuff you get from Argos has been opened already?Like it has been returned.

If u bought from amazon 2 says ago phone up and they will refund u the £10.50 difference

I love this!! Can eat proper chips without the added fat!! I have done a curry in mine, risotto balls, wedges, sweet potato, stirfry! Really is versatile

I never knew anything about these, but thanks to those really useful comments, I want one! Is this the biggest of the newer models? Seen a 1.5kg on Amazon, but can't tell if it's the old model with the problems mentioned here.

Makes lovely chips with tea spoon of oil lasted us years

Paid £120 a few weeks ago, but couldn't wait lol

I can imagine they're great for cooking chips, but if it's marketed as a health product then surely frying sausages isn't the way to go.
