tefal actifryI had a strange conversation with a friend the other day and I was raving about my Actifry because it creates lovely chips that are very low in fat, crispy and generally a healthy option compared to chips in any other format!

"Ooh we have one of those," she declared.

"arent they brilliant and healthy..." I responded.

"Oh I dunno, we just cook oven chips in ours!"

I was quite suprised, dont oven chips go in the oven to be cooked? AND dont you use the Actifry to reduce the fat and create healthy chips along with all sorts of curries etc?!

She looked at me in amazement, and I obviously had a similar look on my face to hers... clearly not!

To be honest... I havent always chanted in the favour of my actifry as it was once a point of scorning at my husband! Now, dont get me wrong the actifry is great... but IT IS NOT A BIRTHDAY PRESENT... I can only say I was dumbfounded! I was in shock... and now after my actifry has produced hundreds of portions of chips faithfully, I do love it BUT IT IS NOT A BIRTHDAY PRESENT... a family Christmas present - yes!


Anyway... obviously, some people need to be educated in the wonderful world of these Actifrys.

1. A whole family can be fed from the Tefal Family Actify - I usually thow 12 maris piper potatoes (chipped) with one tablespoon of oil

2. There's a whol recipe book full of ideas and starting points beyond chips (though we do mainly use ours for chips of somesort, vegy chips, sweet potato chips etc.

3. It's cleaner than the frying splatter of deep fat fried chips and the cooking bowl is easily wiped clean!

4. It's healthier than chip shop chips and oven chips, limited oil (seriously low amounts of oil) is used and the hot air does most of the cooking.

I suppose the only down side is, that the Tefal Actify is not cheap... butif you wanna eat chips the healhy way, then it's worth the investment.

I also bought a hand-device chipper, absolutely essential in my book as I would seriously lose a finger if I didnt have a device and had to chip 12 potatoes!

There a few manufatures that make these dry friers - take care to look at the size so it serves your whole family
