    Actifrys - are they any good?

    Hi all,
    Thinking about getting a tefal acti fry as they are on offer at a store nearby from work, are they any good and what kind of things do you cook in them?

    Our has just broken after about 2 years. We liked it, but to be honest you can do similar things with a lo fat oil spray and an oven

    I absolutely love mine, have had it for about 4 years. If it died I'd replace it in a heartbeat!

    We use ours daily. It's been replaced a few times but we invested in instant replacement cover for 25 which has paid for itself many times over. I'd be lost without it

    We bought the actifry 2in1 as theres a site giving 100 off which made it 180, so more expensive than the other models but aswell as being able to do chips, roasts etc i have a plate that does meat and fish too, tbh i do everything on it now and hardly touch my oven at all, it does amazing fry ups with no need for frylight Tefal & Slimming World exclusive offer

    If your doing your chips with frylight, i do. Open it even 5-7mins and spray the chips again, makes then so crispy and also i'd say to wash the starch off your raw potatoes and path dry before putting them in the airfryer.

    I have a philips airfry. I absolutely love it. I make chips with it all the time. It is used as often as our oven.

    I also have the Philips Airfyer - seems to be much more reliable than the Actifry.

    It also looks nicer I think!

    Had mine about 4/5 years and its brilliant.
