Tefal Actifry Air Fryer paddle breaks

Clues to imminent failure are broken spigots (red arrows). Only one remains intact on this paddle
Other clues to imminent failure are hairline cracks appearing on the Air Fryer paddle body

It's rather a shame but it seems the Tefal Actifry Air Fryer has in-built faults. The stirring paddle will not last a year if you use the Air Fryer more than once a week.

There are clues to imminent failure. The 8 spigots under the paddle that the silicone rubber seal site on break off one-by-one and cracks start to appear. Then the paddle will snap, leaving a half cooked meal with no way to finish it.

This is our second replacement paddle. Unfortunately Tefal Have ignored all of our correspondence on this matters so if you are like us, you will just have to buy a replacement paddle.

Replacement paddles are available from Amazon (Prime) for 11.95; December 2017

This is a real shame for such a useful gadget.
