What does Tefal "innovation" mean?

Our research and development team constantly keep an eye on the latest technologies and the latest consumer's expectations.

In our quest for innovation, we are exploring new fields far beyond a range of basic home appliances. We are going forward: we are consulting universities and their research in specific areas like cooking process as well as master chefs such as Jamie Oliver with whom we worked very closely to deliver top-quality cookware and appliances that anyone can master.

Innovating for your health

The idea of making homemade fries with very little oil arose a long time ago, and we were able to approach the question from another angle through our research with French universities that focused on the cooking process. This new knowledge led us to understand the precise role oil plays in cooking and the exact parameters needed to get a crispy outside and a soft inside.

Once we developed and mastered this process, we needed to transpose it to a household appliance. It took no fewer than five generations of prototypes and multiple organoleptic tests to come up with the sought-after quality and results.

That's how ActiFry was born. And now we are counting on you to carry on this culinary journey.

Discover the secret of perfect cooking with Thermo-Spot®!

Did you know that appropriately pre-heating your pan is the key to perfect cooking? Just like your oven needs pre-heating before baking, you need to pre-heat your pan if you wish to get the best cooking results.  


Thermo-spot® features a heat indicator that helps you cook in all safety those perfect meals for your loved ones.

 How does it work? It is simple. Right inside your pan, you have an indicator that turns red once the ideal cooking temperature is reached.
Before heating, the Thermo-Spot® pattern is clearly visible. As the pan heats up, the colour begins to change. Once it reaches the ideal temperature, the Thermo-Spot® pattern turns solid red ensuring you a uniform and ideal temperature to cook all your meals.
Thermo-Spot® is available on most Tefal pans, sauté pans and electric appliances as convivials (Plancha or grill for example).

Enjoy the best of your cooking experience from the beginning to the end!
