To prepare foods with a Tefal Actifry deep fryer, users must add food, along with the recommended amount of oil, to the cooking pan. A recipe book and measuring spoon are included to ensure that users add the proper amounts of oil for cooking different types of food.
After adding food and oil, users must close the lid, set the cook timer and press the On button to start the deep fryer. The Tefal Actifry deep fryer relies on a single heat setting and a count down timer that users can set to ensure the food cooks completely. The recipe book includes a list of suggested cook times for specific types of food.
A removable paddle stirs the food during the cook time to make sure the food cooks evenly. After the timer sounds, users can open the lid to see if the food is cooked thoroughly. Since the deep fryer does not automatically turn off after the timer sounds, users should press the Off button immediately.
In addition to cooking a variety of foods, the Tefal Actifry is easy to clean and maintain. All removable components, including the cooking pan, paddle and measuring spoon, are dishwasher safe. Users can also wipe down the inside of the deep fryer with a damp cloth to clean.
