Great until it falls apart
Home made chips and roast Vegas are great. Because of the arm that rotates food, softer food can fall apart, even pumpkin as it cooks. The lid mechanism snapped, but with care I could still close it. A bit flimsy for the price.
This was bought for me as a gift as I love home made hot chips & had always used a deep fryer. My eldest son is a personal trainer and got this for me as he said it was a healthier option than deep frying. But when I read the instructions it was just to time consuming on how the potatoes had to be sliced the same size and rinsed so many times for it to cook properly. I used it twice and the effort didn’t measure up to the taste test. So back in the box it went & I have my original delonghi easy clean deep fryer back in use.
The most utilised appliance in my house
I have had my for a number of years now and it is the most used appliance in my household. Every family member cooks with it. It is large enough for the 5 of us, it's healthy and easy clean. I use it with no oil.
We cook everything from fries, chicken nuggets, chiko rolls, spring rolls, fish fingers and Dim Sims. The kids also reheat left overs from KFC and the fish and Chips shop in it and they don't go soggy like they would in a microwave and is much quicker than the oven.
I have no qualms with my kids using it as it's safe, no oil spills...
Ended up staying set up permanently
We purchased the Tefal to use here and there as a healthier option to frying. We ended up leaving it set up on the kitchen because it has many uses besides just chips, for example fresh chicken and a bottled sauce varient make for a quick and healthy tea. Could not imagine getting one without the paddle, it’s just so useful and easy to use. Have had zero issues with ours and gets used at least twice a week.
Love it, use it a least 3 times a week.
It was our difficult choice to buy an air fryer at the beginning. There are lots of different kitchen appliances in the market for steaming, deep fry, slow cook. We have purchase so many in the past, but just use for few times. But finially our air fryer use for reheat, baking, frying. It is so many functions we found out suits our living style.
Super machine - we use it all the time!
We use this all the time. It makes THE BEST fries with very little to no oil. I kind of didn't believe it would work the first time I tried it but once I saw the results, I was hooked. It is also very easy to clean which is a big help too. I cant see many ways this could be improved. It's a great machine.
I absolutely love this product
This is the best appliance that I have bought. It creates exceptionally crisp fries without the addition of all the extra oil. I have used regular potatoes and sweet potatoes in this air fryer. It cooks evenly and only takes 30 minutes to cook the chips. The manual also tells you about other foods you can cook in it.
I love my airfryer!!!! Itd quick and easy to use. It stirs the food while cooking to ensure an even cook. Very little to no oil is required making my meals nice and healthy. It cooks quickly and nicely. Its pretty quick and easy to clean and doesnt have lots of parts to disassemble and reassemble. Its also a good size to put in the cupboard and store. Very happy!
Saves time and healthier
To be honest we mostly make chips for our 5yo with this air fryer and it is worth buying just for this when we use it a couple of times a week. Tastes similar to home made oven baked chips but with a lot less oil. It is very easy to clean and store. We used this a lot while renovating our kitchen and having no oven and it was a lifesaver. We broke the blade (stirring paddle) on ours due to not locking it in correctly but found it easy enough to get a replacement part. There are additional recipes on the Tefal website and Facebook groups dedicated to sharing air fryer recipes so it is easy to find more ways to use this appliance.
So Easy To Use Love It
Now I can add fries or fish and chips or calamari anytime I want. Good for the mouth, bad for the belly!
I chose this model because of all the positive recommendations and it is good. This uses hardly any oil at all, and the results are similar to deep fried food. Similar but not exactly the same so you have to watch some things such as thin bits getting too dried out. Its very easy to clean and almost no mess.
I am happy with this product the only downside is its making me fatter.
Broke after 7 months
Funnily enough I wrote a massive review about how amazing this was and now have to update it.
After 7 months it stopped working today for no reason. I also started to like it less and less. The blade tends to break apart anything (chips, batter on chicken etc) which is very annoying. You could take the blade out but it cooked better on one side so you would have to move the food around yourself... also the blade got very difficult to clean and would have stuff permanently stuck to it even using dishwasher etc. luckily we got to swap our for free for a philips viva air fryer which has much better reviews.
Good but not as good as frying in oil
We found that the best results were from using zero oil, otherwise the food gets way to oily. It is not a fast cooker, eg we take 25 minutes to cook chips. So we cook the chips about 3/4 the way, put them into the oven and then cook crumbed salt and pepper squid until it is ready, again use no oil.
I absolutely love this device! i love fried stuff but I am very limited to what i can eat as i have a strict diet but with this machine i can eat chips on daily basis!
the only thing that with it is that it takes around 40 to 45 minutes to cook the chips well done and so as everything else too so you just need to be patient. but it's definitely worth it! you can fry full tray of potato's with one spoon of olive oil! unbelievable
Has limited application but great for frozen chips!
Bought this essentially to make healthier chips. Much more superior to the oven for oven fries. Chips, fries and potato gems come out crisp but with sift / fluffy inside. Happy with that. Heats up really quickly. Really easy to clean. Takes up quite a bit of cupboard space. Otherwise this appliance does what it promises.
I use this product to cook French fried for my kids. It is definitely healthier than oil fry but taste the same. I haven’t use it for other cooking so it is currently being spared. I don’t think it is the must have item in my kitchen. But the product is good and easy to use.
I bought this when one of my friend recommended it .It cost me 199 dollars as it was on an offer that time when I purchased .Good stuff for the money I spend.I am very happy with this product specially to do do my salmon fry and chicken fry. Kids love to have the fish fry , very crispy..
Generally, it is a good product. It is not very hard to clean. But the food it cooked is not like Philip air frier cook, they are totally different. I can’t cook chicken wings with bread on it, but it is perfect to cook wings with some soy sauce. It is more like a small oven rather than a frier.
The Tefal model is quite large compared to other airfryers I have seen, and despite its large size, I found that it could not fit as much as I thought. No temperature control either and the rotator/blade located inside the fryer is flimsy and ended up crushing my potato gems - created a mess. My food was not as crispy as I had hoped for; all in all, a big disappointment.
Good but with faulty design
Air fry is good and easy to use, does chips wedges and some stir fry cuisines. Save a lot time. it's kind of noisy and storage is a little tricky due to its size and our limited shelf space. and the silicone sealer under paddle is sticky to the pot in several months. I think this is a faulty design due to latest model removing this silicone sealer.
