This little beauty doesn't just do brilliant chips mind, as it can also be used to produce everything from killer curries through to sizzling stir fries. The Dual Motion specification is such that the machine can circulate hot air in an incredibly efficient way. What that results in is really well cooked food, but without the unhealthy aspect of excessive oil and grease. The Tefal ActiFry can tackle a diverse selection of meals too, including meat or veg dishes and slow-cook casseroles. We might love it for the chips, but its 1.2kg cooking capacity means it can dole out so much more than platefuls of admittedly superb French fries.
