The family-sized Actifry pan comes with a ring (also called “splash guard”, “collar”, “turn-over ring”, “spill ring”) around it to help prevent food tumbling out.
To most people removing and replacing this ring just seems intuitive and they never have to even think about it. For a few people though, it remains a mysterious challenge.
Removing the ring rim guard
To remove the ring, make sure it is cool enough to safely touch first.
With one hand, hold the left-side of the ring. Note that on the right-hand side of the ring, there is a clip. Press slightly on this, and the “lock” that holds the two halves of the ring securely together will come undone. Gently pull the two halves of the ring open a bit while lifting up and away. Do not attempt to pull the ring completely apart into two halves; it is meant to stay joined together by the hinge at the back of the ring that holds the two halves together.
Replacing the ring rim guard
Don’t lock the ring together and then attempt to put it on the pan. Instead, place it in its unlocked state around the pan, arranging it so that it rests on the edge of the pan, and so that the ring’s centre parts at the front line up. Then, using your left hand press on the left part of the ring, using your right hand press on the right part of the ring, and push the two halves of the ring together until the front parts meet together, and lock together with a “click” sound.
