Tefal ActiFry AL800240 Review

The Tefal Actifry AL800040 is a popular low fat fryer option which is a UK best seller. This revolutionary fryer allows you to make your favourite fried dishes but stay healthy at the same time. How you may say?

The secret. The Tefal Actifry AL800240 uses just one spoonful of oil to make 1kg of chips which would be enough to feed a family of four. One spoonful is over 100 times less when comparing this to a traditional fat fryer. This means not only are you eating healthier while enjoying your favourite dishes but you are saving oil and it’s safe. It’s so easy to use. Just throw in your food. Add a spoon of oil (in the provided spoon). Set the timer and wait! Simple! The Actifry uses a hot air system and stirring paddle to evenly cook the food meaning that you don’t even have to stir, flip, shake, or move the food at all! Wow effortless! You are not just confined to chips. The versatility of this fryer means that you can cook a range of foods. You can cook frozen food and fresh food. It comes with a recipe book so that you can take full advantage of and cook great tasting dishes.

The ActiFry has a timer, which you can set for up to 99 minutes. A warning “ready” alarm at the end of the cooking period will let you know when your food is cooked. However the timer doesn’t turn off the fryer. The bowl, lid and paddle are removable and easy to clean and dishwasher friendly. You can use any oil with the Tefal ActiFry, including olive oil and rapeseed oil.

Something I liked about this fryer is the viewing window. You can check on your food and see what’s going on inside even though you don’t have to move your food with the stirring arm. To open the lid you just push a button. The Actifry then automatically stops until the lid is closed. I also like the easy gripe handle which lets you easily lift up the lid without any problem. The Actifry AL800040 is also dish washable. Just remove the cover and pan and put in the dishwasher.

This ActiFry model is similar to the white AL8000240 model but there are some differences. Tefal are promoting it as a special edition. Lets check out the differences then. The black version has internal cooling fan and more ventilation. This may be due to the fact that the white one had caught fire a few times. This addresses that issue. The other difference is the colour! Well that's about it. While expensive it is still one of the best on the market for healthy frying.
