T-FAL ACTIFRY REVIEW
We all want to be and eat healthier but it can be a very hard task to do. I came across the T-fal Actifry which in a non-traditional fryer that claims to cook 1kg of French fries with only ONE SPOON of OIL!
At first, I didn't know how this machine would work and didn't believe that I would get the same great tasting fried French fries as in a traditional deep fryer but only healthier!
The Nutritious & Delicious™ ActiFry® from T-fal is a revolutionary kitchen appliance that is developed to change the way you cook and eat. This appliance makes it possible to create delicious and healthier versions of everyday meals and it is very easy to use and doesn't create a mess like traditional fryers.
The product comes with a recipe book that includes 38 healthy and appetizing recipes, all of which feature specific nutritional information.
You can also find many more online:
All you have to do is add the ingredients into the pan, close the lid, set the countdown timer and turn the product on. The dishes mad by the Actifry are healthier due to little or no required oil.
A LOT healthier! The fries turned out very crispy and had the same great taste as always. The best part is that frozen fries require NO OIL in this machine. It made my family and I feel better about eating this delicious treat!
We did try cooking jalapeño poppers in the Actifry. The poppers turned out crispy and yummy but the machine did tear them apart some and made a mess of the food. It still tasted great but I defiantly wouldn't want to serve them to guests.
I also made frozen hash browns in the Actifry. I absolutely love hash browns but I hate cooking them on the stove. It was a breeze with this machine. I poured them in with a tiny bit of oil, pushed start, set the timer and went on to cook my eggs and bacon! They turned out perfect and it was hassle free.
The only down fall about this machine is that some of the foods (like previously mentioned) did fall apart in the machine due to the rotating bar that circulates the food. Also, the cook time of the foods are generally increased. This machine is quite costly compared to other fryers but I do believe that nobody can put a price on health. If you are going to choose to eat fried foods, let this machine do the cooking for you!
It’s so easy to use – you just put the ingredients in the removable pan, pour oil over it (if the recipe calls for it), shut the lid, set the timer and you are free to other tasks while waiting for the timer to ding!
The pan, lid, paddle and spoon are all dishwasher safe which makes clean up very easy! I feel that the worst part about cooking is the clean up afterwards, so this is a huge plus in my book!
The T-fal Actifry sells in many local stores or can be purchased online on Amazon.
