Actifry pans (aka bowls, aka “body pot”) are different and not interchangeable for the most part.
The Actifry 2-in-1 pan and the Family Sized pan at first blush look roughly the same. They are both the same width (24 cm / 9.4 inches diameter), with a centre spindle of the same height (5.5 cm / 2.2 inches.)
The pans are also the same dark black colour and the same material.
The first difference though that is apparent is the handle.
The handles look very different and in fact, even function differently. The silver handle on the 2-in-1 pan comes apart, with the silver part serving as a hot tray lifter. The Family Size handle is a one-piece handle that does not come apart unless something is very wrong.
The handle difference translates physically to the pans themselves. In the above photo of two well-worn pans minus their handles, note the different hole configurations at the back for the two different handles.
The Family Size pan on the left has two holes for its handle’s shafts to pass through to secure the handle. The 2-in-1 pan on the right has three holes for its handle.
Consequently a pan handle for one won’t work on the pan for the other: you have to order the specific handle for your model.
When placed side by side, it becomes apparent that the two pans are different heights.
The Family Size pan is 8 cm (3 inches) tall; the 2-in-1 pan is 9 cm (3.5 inches) tall.
The added height is probably to accommodate the top tray that the 2-in-1 machine has.
The 2-in-1 pan has two top-level supports on its rim, that the Family Size pan doesn’t have.
These two supports are there owing to the top tray that the 2-in-1 machine has, in order to help hold it up.
So there you have two pans that are temptingly similar but ultimately, not interchangeable.
Above, you see the pan for the Actifry Regular (aka Classic, aka Standard.)
This pan looks quite different right from the start, as it has no centre spindle at all, just a slightly raised hole.
Replacement pans for Actifry
Replacement pans for Actifry cost surprisingly little so if something happens, don’t despair (do shop around though, as we have seen some inexplicably higher prices for the same pans.)
And to be clear, you can order the pans, handles and paddles separately, so you only need to pay for just the exact replacement part you need. If a pan dies on you for whatever reason (and you have to buy a new one rather than just return it), take the handle off and save it for the future, you never know!
I haven’t seen replacement pans for sale on Amazon (as of October 2014.) The pans are for sale, though on Ebay, and from T-Fal and SEB and other Actifry parts dealers in various countries.
