REVIEW ON NEW TEFAL ACTIFRY

Mar 8, 2008
The Actifry is part of the Nutritious & Delicious range from Tefal which aims to produce innovative products for people searching for healthier ways to cook without compromising on taste. Simply load up to 1kg of freshly cut chips into the Actifry, drop in a measure of your preferred oil using the spoon provided and set the timer, the Actifry does the rest, just wait for the timer to end and the alarm to sound.

Chips represent one in every three potatoes eaten in the UK - adding up to nearly two million tonnes of potatoes a year and a staggering 240,000 kilos of hidden fat entering into the UK food chain. I purchased the Tefal Actifry recently & I am really impressed with it, the chips are marvellous. I also give the chips a minute or two in the fryer before adding the oil, which appears to dry them finally. The versatile Actifry allows you to cook a range of foods including meat, fish, stir fried vegetables, frozen chips and more. You can then sit and enjoy real chips, crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, safe in the knowledge that they only contain 3% fat. Tefal have come up with a winning solution of having tasty home cooked chips with only 3% fat.

Everything except the base can go into the dishwasher, and of course there's no oil to filter after frying. View the recipes for the Actifry which are included in the recipe book. Sometimes the reviews given to a new product are a bit over optimistic but not so for the Tefal Actifry, the claim that you can fry 1kg of chips in a tablespoonful of oil is correct and more.

You can spice up your chips with paprika, herbs, or curry powder added to the oil before you sprinkle it on. You can even use the oil of your choice from olive oil to rapeseed oil. That's right boys and girls if you deep fry properly the food absorbs very little oil. A specially-designed paddle gently and slowly rotates the chips around a removable, aluminium non-stick pan, ensuring each potato baton is coated with a fine mist of oil.

On the bad side it is pretty noisy and takes up about a foot by a foot and half of bench space but it's so easy to keep clean I just stow it in it's box on top of the cupboard when I'm not using it. well it is rather large, will take up room on your worktop and in your cupboard but it will be worth it.

It is not HUGE but slightly larger than a conventional domestic chip fryer. That one spoonful is 100 times less than a traditional deep fat fryer, which not only means that your food is substantially more healthy, but it is also more economical and is also 100% safe, unlike some traditional methods of frying. I do not like deep fat fryers so have previously relied on oven chips or baked my own chips in the oven, until this great item came along. I was sick of the disgusting smell from all my previous deep fat fryers and came across this wonderful gadget.
