ActiFry Lid Issues with Early Models
Early Tefal Actifry models suffered from issues with the lid cover breaking. This mainly affected model numbers in the FZ7000 range. Tefal later addressed this issue with a redesigned lid on subsequent models. That said, even some of the modern Actifry’s do still suffer from broken or cracked lids, through wear and tear or accidental damage.
Weakened or broken ActiFry Lid clips
The retaining lugs at the front and/or back can become weakened and broken, meaning the lid won’t securely attach to the Tefal Actifry unit. This effectively renders the Actifry useless.
Why do the clips become weakened?
Dishwasher cleaning seems to be the culprit. Given the lid is made of plastic, regular dishwasher cleaning can degrade the plastic causing it to become brittle and weakened. To prolong the life of your Actifry lid, we recommend infrequent dishwasher use, instead of washing it by hand.
Where can I buy an ActiFry replacement lid?
Your local high street kitchen appliance is unlikely to hold stock of Actifry lids so you’re best to source a lid online. Fortunately, there are several Tefal parts suppliers but in our experience, Amazon offers the best service here, in terms of customer support, delivery and value. With that in mind, we’ve listed the Actifry lids you can currently purchase on Amazon below. Check the listing to make sure the replacement lid will be compatible with your model of Actifry.
