Actifry Essential is a budget-ranged model of the Actifry.
The capacity is 1 kg (2.2 pounds) of food, the same as for the Actifry Classic.
The lid isn’t hinged; you lift it off completely. There is also a much smaller viewing area. Note that some versions have NO viewing area.
There is also no timer built into the machine; you would use another kitchen timer of your choosing. There is also no auto stop, though it will stop itself when you lift the lid, and restart when you put the lid back on.
Here is an end-user demo of the machine. It is in French, but the visuals show the operation well.
Here is a Tefal commercial for the machine.
Model numbers are in the FZ30xxxx range.
