The Delonghi Multifry is a combination countertop convection oven / hot air fryer / self-stirring cooking pot. Essentially, you transform it from countertop convection oven to stir-stirring cooking pot by inserting its paddle.
As of fall 2014, being sold in the UK but not yet in North America.

- No need to preheat before beginning cooking;
- Users say that for each minute you want to add to the timer, you have to repeatedly press it;
- Pan has non-stick ceramic coating on it;
- Lid, paddle and bowl are removable for cleaning and are dishwasher-safe;
- You can add liquids (for risotto, etc) just respect maximum fill level.
- When you switch on the oven with the paddle in, the paddle won’t start moving right away, rather, it waits a bit for the food to start cooking before starting stirring (( info as per blogger Sarah Hartley at https://www.foodiesarah.com/13/paddling-with-asparagus/ )). Also the user manual does say, though it’s buried: “Please note: To guarantee best results, the paddle begins to turn a few minutes after cooking begins.”;
- Paddle continues moving when lid is lifted.
