10 Jan 2020
Very apprehensive at the start, quite a lot of money spent but an excellent deal by buying direct. Having now used it several times I wonder why I hadn't purchased one before. Every kitchen should have one.

This smart air fryer cooks two dishes at once, adjusts the cooking time and temperature, and even stirs for you!
Name a more iconic duo than fish and chips. Now imagine being able to cook the entire meal at the same time in one appliance, with little to no oil*. ActiFry Genius XL 2in1 does exactly that!
Tefal’s most innovative air fryer has a rotating tray above the bowl, giving you two cooking zones in one. Cook succulent steaks, chicken or kebabs in the tray, while cooking roast potatoes, fried rice or vegetable couscous in the bowl for a full meal in one go. You can also make dessert, cook two different recipes (great for fussy eaters) or remove the tray for one-pot wonders like stews. And all of this can be done with 99% less fat added*.
The patented combination of hot air and an automatic stirring paddle keeps everything moving (so you don’t have to) for even results. Nine automatic cooking programs know exactly when to adjust the temperature or give things a stir. The ‘1-Meal-in-1-Go’ programs are great time-savers: just add all your ingredients at once and it does the rest. You can also set your own cooking time and temperature to create your own dish.
Whether you’re a kitchen novice or cooking pro, you’ll never be short of exciting meal ideas with an in-box recipe book and 300+ recipes on the free My ActiFry app**.
