The headline feature of the Tefal ActiFry Genius XL is the clever 2-in-1 function. The appliance has a lower pan and an upper tray which allows you to cook all parts of the meal in one go.
If you struggle to get your timings right when cooking, this will take out the faff. Fancy crispy chips and juicy chicken? Just select the chips programme for the bottom then select the chicken program for the top tray. Set your chips and when it’s time, the 2-in-1 program will beep tell you to add the tray with your chicken. Easy.
As well as cooking all your ingredients simultaneously, the 1.7kg capacity allows you to cook up to eight portions in one go too, which is ideal for larger households.
It’s quick too, shaving 30 per cent off the cooking time compared to other ActiFry models. And unlike other air fryers, it allows you to cook ‘wet’ meals like curries, stir fries, casseroles and stews.
