By using just one spoonful of oil, you can make 1.5 kilograms of golden, crispy home-made chips, which is enough to feed a family of six. That one spoonful contains 100 times less oil than a traditional deep fat fryer, which not only means that your food is substantially healthier, but cooking is also more economical and 100% safe.
Simply set the timer and let ActiFry cook away! You can just sit back and relax while you wait for the alarm timer to sound at the end of the cooking period, letting you know your meal is ready.
The automatic lid conveniently opens at the push of a button, so that you can easily add ingredients or seasoning during cooking.The cooking process does pause when the lid is open in order to ensure 100% safety.
At Tefal, healthy eating corresponds to quality cooking which preserves food flavours and reduces cooking time. With ActiFry, you can associate high quality ingredients with a small quantity of oil to quickly prepare flavourful healthy meals for you and your family.
The automatic temerature control has a unique patented hot air distribution system, which circulates the hot air through the food for perfect even cooking. With a transparent lid, it is easy to look at what you are cooking.
With a standard deep fat frier, burned bits often accumulate in the oil as it is used and reused creating unpleasant burned smells. With ActiFry both fat and oil smells are reduced and the oild is only used once minimising any cooking odours.
The ActiFry is a very versatile machine - Not only can you cook real chips - but a whole range of other meals including casseroles, crunchy mixed fried vegetables, slices of meat and fish.
As there isn’t a large amount of oils heated up, and there is no condensation on the lid, the ActiFry is the safest frier on the market.
The good news is you don’t have to choose between a balanced diet and delicious food. There is a solution: ActiFry. This innovative appliance was designed by Tefal to decrease the quantity of fat needed to cook chips and your favourite dishes without denaturing the taste!

For the standard capacity 1kg ActiFry and 1.2kg ActiFry plus,there is a spoon provided with a volume of 14ml. The 1.5kg food capacity Family ActiFry is supplied with a spoon measuring 20 ml. The majority of recipes will use 1 spoonful of oil, however this may change according to the recipe. Some foods do not need one full spoonful of oil to be cooked in the ActiFry : frozen chips will already have oil on the exterior and fatty foods such as sausages may not need a full spoonful of oil as there may be a lot of fat already in the foods.
