Which Tefal Air Fryer
Helping you choose which Tefal Actift Air Fryer to Buy
The Tefal Actifry Health Fryer has the best range of low fat fryers or ‘health fryers’ on the market. However, choosing which the best one to buy is confusing as Tefal have a number of different models. This review is written for anyone thinking of buying a Tefal Actifry Health Fryer or low fat fryer. With so many model names and ranges, things have become a little confusing so we present what you need to know and help you select the best Actifry Health Fryer that is right for you and your family. We have a wealth of experience using and reviewing all of the Tefal range of Health Fryers and others too.
Tefal have been the leading name in Health Fryers since they launched their original Health Fryer several years ago. Since then, things have moved on and now Tefal have 7 ranges of Health Fryers to choose from. If that is not confusing enough, they continuously refresh their model numbers and so you will find virtually the same device with several model numbers. Our advice is to completely ignore the model number and just focus on the range.
Six of the range all function in a similar way and follow a similar design with a round ceramic bowl, rotating paddle (removable) and hinged lid. Different ranges vary in size, power, versatility, and of course, price. The good news is chips taste great in all of them.
The Actifry Delight Health Fryer is the seventh of their range. This diverts from Tefal’s standard design and has a drawer instead of a bowl, much like many of Tefal’s competitors. Whether this is a sign of things to come from Tefal we doubt very much since Tefal are still the leading supplier or low fat fryers. It is far more likely that Tefal recognise that some customers prefer the alternative style offered by the likes of Phillips, Duronic etc.
Before we go into the detail about the various models, the following comparison table provides an ‘at a glance’ summary of the key features and differences
Recommended Tefal Actifry Deep Fat Fryers
Tefal ActiFry Original FZ710840 Health Air Fryer, Black, 1kg, 4 Portions
The original Actifry Air Fryer has changed little since its launch over 7 years ago. It has all of the classic Actifry features such as large capacity (1KG), viewing window and a removable rotating padding which is ideal for cooking chips evenly. Tefal has made many improvement over the years to newer models such as larger capacity, dual layer - 2 in 1, smart controls etc. The basic has not changed however because when a unit is this well built and produces excellent results, there is really no point. Highly recommended.
