Tefal Actifry – It’s ok to enjoy eating chips!

Tefal Actifry

Rating: ★★★★☆

If like most of the population of Earth you enjoy eating chips occasionally but feel guilty afterwards, this product is for you!

The Tefal Actifry works by using a paddle which mixes the potatoes around a non-stick pan whilst cooking them in just a spoonful of oil. Chips take around 20 minutes to cook and they taste seriously good, just as nice as if deep fried in a litre of vegetable oil!

There are loads of other things that taste good, sausages being another, or if you’re feeling particularly lazy, stir fries work as well.

The bowl is removable so can be placed in the dishwasher so a little different from watching my mum deep fry on the gas hob with a saucepan full of boiling oil.

There are a couple of small negatives, the Actifry takes up quite a lot of space so you need either a big work surface or a big cupboard, plus it is a little noisy. This aside though, chips without guilt works for me.


  • You can eat more chips!
  • Reasonably healthy
  • Extremely easy to set up and use
  • Includes a recipe book


  • Noisy
  • A fairly big product


If you fry a lot this is a much healthier option
