I first learned about the T-Fal ActiFry from our friend, Joey Fortman of Real Mom Media. She was reviewing the ActiFry for her site. It only took a few minutes of watching her video and I was in love. Imagine then, how thrilled I was when I received one of my own to review, and even better I get to give you your own T-Fal ActiFry too.
ActiFry is not your typical fryer. It uses patented technology with pulsed hot air. It constantly stirs your ingredients with a paddle that allows the perfect cooking of food with little to no oil (1 tablespoon of oil). Check out our video below for more information.
7 Reasons I love the T-Fal ActiFry
So Easy to Use
In my older fryer, I always needed to fill the pot with oil and wait till it reached the right temperature. The T-Fal ActiFry has a shallow nonstick pan with a spinning paddle. Place the food in, set the timer, add oil (if required) and you’re good to go.
Less Oil = Healthier Food, Less Mess, and fewer costs
Most recipes in the T-Fal ActiFry do not require any oil. If they do, it’s typically one tablespoon. Less oil means your food is going to cook healthier while still remaining moist and delicious. It also means you are going to spend less on cooking oil. Our old fryer required a whole can of oil. At $10+ a can the costs of frying food can quickly add up. The T-Fal ActiFry gives me an option that makes meal time healthier and more affordable.
Makes Cooking Fun
It makes cooking fun again. With less mess and easier clean up, it makes me want to cook more. My boys and I are already scanning the cookbook, it came with, to see what recipes we would like to create together.
Safer around my kids
Yes, you still need to have your kids be cautious around the fryer, it will get hot. However, since the pan is not filled with hot oil you don’t need to worry about hot oil splattering when you remove the food.
Dishwasher Safe means Cleanup is Quick & Easy
This is the feature I love the most about the ActiFry. With my old fryer, I would need to soak the pan and scrub the basket to remove all the grease and it never felt quite clean. With the ActiFry, the lid, pan, and spinning paddle are all dishwasher safe. I love that.
My old fryer had a short cord that magnetically connected to the fryer. Move it the wrong way, power would shut off. After some wear and tear the magnetism in it would just stop working and I would be left with a fryer that I could no longer power up. The ActiFry has a long cord so I can easily move it around my kitchen countertop and it’s connected to the unit. No magnetic connections to go bad.
