Tefal produces three models of air fryer.
The Actifry with a 1 Kg capacity.
The Actifry Family with a 1.5 Kg capacity.
The Actifry 2 in 1 can cook your chips and meat or fish at the same time, capacity of 1.5 Kg plus a tray of 0.5 Kg.
All of the three models work in the same way and make the same healthy and tasty chips, as well as other food of course: meat, fish, vegetables.
The difference is in their size and capacity. The 1.5 Kg capacity of the ActiFry Family is the highest on the market. The 2 in 1 offers an extra tray to separate the food which is an added bonus.
How does it work?
The ActiFry has a patented hot air system and a stirring paddle to ensure evenly cooked food. There’s no need to shake or stir during cooking. It also features an odour filter to keep your kitchen fresh.
Unlike the AirFryer from Philips the ActiFry does not require pre-heating however the cooking time is longer though, 45 min verses 25 min.
How to use the ActiFry?
It is a very simple appliance to use. Put your freshly cut chips into the ActiFry, add a spoonful of your favourite oil, close the lid, set the timer and that’s it!
It has an auto-off function and an audible timer so you can relax while your chips are cooking.
The ActiFry is equipped with a paddle that rotates slowly and stir your chips to ensure that your food cooks evenly, so there is no need for you to shake or stir your chips.
The see through lid lets you keep an eye on chips while they are cooking. Opening the lid will automatically stop the appliance.
If you have a family to feed the ActiFry Family or the 2 in 1 are your only options. The ActiFry, the Halo and the AirFryer are simply too small.
While they are not as fast as the AirFryer they both have twice its capacity and they cook delicious chips!
