An Actifry Snacking Basket is an accessory that comes in the box with the Actifry Snacking model. The basket is also sold as a stand alone unit.
The SEB /T-fal parts UK site says the basket will work with the following range of Actifry models: GH80xx, FZxx, and AL80Xxx . So that (“FZxx”) should mean that it will work with the Actifry Classic, original models. The GH80xx means that it will also work with Actifry Plus models.
By giving an Actifry a paddle-free top tray, it gives a Classic Actifry capabilities that are very similar to the Actifry 2 in 1, with its solid metal top tray.
See here to understand how the Actifry Snacking Basket works in operation.
Note that the snack basket was originally made for the 1 kg Actifry Classic, though it’s now said to work for most 1 kg size Actifry models. To be clear, the snack basket discussed on this page will not work with the 1.5 kg Family size or 1.5 kg 2-in-1. And, I don’t know if any such similar grilling attachment is or will be ever available for the Family Size Actifry. (The 2-in-1, clearly, comes with its own top rack.)
But if you already own a Classic Actifry machine, I’d say getting your hands on one of these basket babies is top priority because of how much it will extend the capability of your machine at relatively little cost.
Where to buy
As of spring 2015, Canadians can buy it at Canadian Tire for $29.99.
As of spring 2015, I don’t know how Americans would buy this, aside from ordering from the UK, Ireland or New Zealand site (see below). Or, whip up across the border and hit a Canadian Tire.
You can do web searches for the snacking basket based on terms such as “Actifry snacking accessory”, “accessoire snacking” and “snack grid.” In French, try “grille snacking”; in German try “Snackaufsatz.”
Note the snack basket is actually, technically 3 separate parts : a black base to support it, the grilling basket, and the actual handle for the grilling basket. Those can also be purchased separately should you have an issue with one of those.
I would just nag SEB / TFAL in your country to get it in for you; if enough people do, they’ll have to stir themselves to do it. The part # is: XA701073.
