Can new Delonghi Multifry rival Tefal Actifry?New health fryer challenged with chips

09 October 2014


The Delonghi Multifry comes with an automatic paddle, which stirs your food for you

What can the Delonghi Multifry offer you that your oven can’t? And how does it compare to the Tefal Actifry? We asked one of our researchers to try out the new Delonghi health fryer and give her verdict.  

Healthy fryers are enjoying a surge in popularity, and this version from Delonghi is one of the latest to hit the shops. Aiming to help you use less oil when cooking, a health fryer could be a good option if you want to cut down on fat.

At £180, the Delonghi Multifry is cheaper than the Tefal Actifry 2-in-1 (£280) but more expensive than the Philips Viva Airfryer (£99). Find out whether our researcher thinks it is worth buying in our first look review of the Delonghi Multifry Classic FH1163.

Automatic mixing paddle

The Delonghi Multifry comes with an automatic paddle, which stirs your food for you. We tried it out on chips to find out whether it helps cook them evenly.

The Multifry can be used with or without the paddle, and Delonghi says it is perfect for cooking meat, fish, pizza and even cakes.
