Why you should consider the T-Fal ActiFry

The T-Fal ActiFry AirFryer is notable for the following reasons;

Weight

The T-Fal FZ7002 ActiFry comes in at a weight of 10.9 pounds, which should be manageable around the modern kitchen. This is below the average Airfryer weight.  The Philips Avance Collection AirFryer, as an example, has a weight of about 15 pounds. The reduced weight should come in handy and should enable you to easily use the ActiFry around the kitchen.

Size

This amazing Air Fryer has a capacity of 2.2lbs. Although this is below what you will find with some of the heavy weight Air Fryers that can be found out there, this should still be enough for the average family to enjoy those delectable healthy fried foods that have made this appliance a must have for every kitchen.

Audible Countdown Timer

The audible countdown timer is something that’s unique for the T-Fal ActiFry. The timer can be set for up to 99 minutes, which should be enough for most foods. The great thing about the countdown timer is that it allows you to put food into the ActiFry, set the time and go about your other business. The timer notifies you when your food is ready.

Dishwasher Safe

The T-Fal FZ7002 ActiFry comes with a removable pan, lid, paddle, spoon and filter, all of which can be cleaned in a dishwasher. This makes the task of cleaning up after you have cooked your healthy meal a breeze. All that you need to do is throw these parts into the dishwasher. Everything else can be cleaned using a wet cloth.

Non Stick Removable Pan

One of the major problems with some of the Air Fryers that can be found out there is that things can become rather messy after only a few rounds of cooking. And cleaning up all that stuck food can be a real pain! We have already mentioned  that the T-Fal FZ7002 ActiFry comes with an integrated paddle, around which food is constantly rotates and is mixed even as it is being cooked.

This is great, not only because it stops any of the food from being stuck in the pan, but also because the constant stirring allows food to be cooked evenly. The great thing is that the ActiFry comes with a Non Stick Removable Pan, which helps reduce the mess. If you hate cleaning up after yourself, then this the appliance that you should go for.

Automatic lid

Another unique thing about the T-Fal FZ7002 ActiFry is that it comes with an automatic lid. What’s more, the lid is 100% transparent and stream-free. This allows you to keep an eye on what’s happening to the food that you are cooking. Clearly, this comes with a number of advantages, not least of which is the ability to open the lid during cooking at the push of a button.

Easy to Use

The T-Fal FZ7002 ActiFry is one of the easiest to use Air Fryers that you will be able to find on the market. Although you are likely to have a learning curve before getting the hang of using this appliance, the same applies to all AirFryers.

The T-Fal ActiFry Air Fryer- The Cons

Plastic Smell

A major concern for the T-Fal FZ7002 ActiFry is the plastic smell that gets stuck to your food whenever you are preparing your meal. This is something that you will hear in the some of the comments that have been left by people who have used this AirFryer.  The good news is that the smell can be eliminated by running the appliance on the highest setting for 30 minutes immediately after making your purchase.

That paddle breads up some foods (Its actually removable!)

The T-Fal ActiFry comes with a unique paddle, which is its major selling point. If you go on Amazon, you will discover a number of complaints about the paddle. Most people claim that the thing tends to break up some foods. What they do not realize is that the paddle is actually removable, so this shouldn’t really be an issue. Again, simply remove the paddle if you don’t need it!
