T-Fal Actifry 2 in 1 Deep Fryer Provides Healthier Choices for the New Year

When it comes to the holidays, appliances are always a top seller especially when purchasing a gift for someone you love. It’s hard to know what someone would like or not.  Maybe a crock pot for your brother?  How about a toaster for your neighbor?  Appliances make life easier, and when it comes to appliances and the holidays.  I always turn to London Drugs.

I’ve decided as the holidays approach and the new year rings on, eating healthier and making better choices is something my family and I want to do more of.  The T-fal Actifry helps us to do just that! – JS

T-Fal ActiFry 2 in 1 Deep Fryer

I used to have a deep fryer, because well I love fried foods. I know they aren’t the healthiest but come on. Homemade french fries, fish and chips, deep fried prawns, chicken wings. NOM NOM NOM right?  The problem with a deep fryer is heart health because when you eat deep fried foods you are eating about 10lbs of oil and grease!  So when I heard about the T-Fal ActiFry several years back, I had always wanted to try one. The ability to enjoy crispy food without the fat is something I just love.  And this bad boy in black doesn’t disappoint!

Why the T-Fal ActiFry Rocks!

  • Uses 1 spoon of oil for 1.5kg of crispy french fries
  • 2 in 1 function allows you to cook fries/veggies and meat/fish or anything at the same time
  • 4 programs to cook meat, fish, chicken and desserts
  • Additional cooking plate for unlimited dishes in one go to make meals easier
  • Removable cooking pan and plate for easy cleaning
  • Removable stirring paddle to keep cooking even
  • Easy to use control panel
  • Easy to use recipe book to give you a head start on healthier eating
  • Removable filter
  • 1400 watts and Actifry measuring spoon for both oil and salt
 
 
The T-Fal ActiFry was super easy to use and to start we decided to do up some chicken wings, something both hubby and I love, but when we do them in the oven they always turn out super greasy which often upsets my stomach. I also wanted french fries of course. And since we are able to cook two things at once, I thought why not.

 

Now I know many people have tried making fries, including my brother who has an ActiFry, and they turned out mushy.  The key is to wash all the starch from the potatoes before hand, then peel and cut, then wash again, and dry with a clean t-towel.  You can also pre-cut your fries and freeze them to use.  Do not add the fries until they are completely dry.

 

I added the fries first to the bottom basket.  I hit the basic timer 55 minutes and closed the lid and went about doing the dishes and cleaning the house. At twenty minutes left, I opened the lid which stops the cooking motion.  The fries were almost done and turning crispy.  I then added my chicken wings to the top plate. I coated my wings in shake and bake. I used 1 teaspoon of oil on my fries using the Actifry measuring spoon.  I used one teaspoon of oil on my chicken wings. I hit the 2 in 1 button which gives you options for which type of meat you are cooking. I chose poultry and hit start for the last 20 minutes.

 

 

The timer went off and I was pleasantly surprised. The fries were crispy and golden.  The chicken wings fully cooked in twenty minutes and yummy and tender inside but crispy on the outside. Best of all only 2 teaspoons of oil was used for the entire meal. Neither the fries or chicken were greasy at all.
 
 
 
There are so many things you can cook with the Actifry, they also have a community online with people sharing all the recipes they’ve tried. Everything from soups, to chili, to nugget potatoes and beef tenderloin, veggies and stir fry’s.  You name it and the Actifry will cook it.   The Actifry is also easy to clean, coming apart quickly and most pieces can be placed in the dishwasher for easy food safety cleansing.

 

The 2 in 1 Actifry can be found at London Drugs and retails for $349 (but is on sale right now) for only $299 and worth every penny as this is something that you will use more and more.  It saves time. Saves your health. Uses little oil for cooking and still produces amazing and tasty food your family will love!
 

WIN IT!
