Ok so this is one we have been wanting to do for a while! Everyone loves chips and so this is one that most people are going to enjoy we hope. Everyone loves chips but most people try to avoid them as they are known to be fatty and generally pretty bad for you. This is why you are going to love the Tefal Actifry so much.
The Tefal Actifry is a small health fryer that primarily uses hot steam to cook your chips. This means that you are only using a tiny bit of vegetable oil to cook your chips! In fact Tefal say that you use 95% less fat when using their Actifry health fryers. So we said we would try this as this sounds like quite a claim.
So we took it for a test drive and cut up some nice thick chunky chips. The Actifry machine takes a few minutes longer to cook the chips than most fryers but the results were fantastic. We only put a spoon full of vegetable oil into the fryer before we started and the chips are done.
The self stirrer meant that we could leave the chips cook and not have to come and shake them every 2 minutes like when using other standard fryers. It comes with a see through lid so you can always see the status of your chips. Admittedly Tefals Actifry machine isn’t as cheap as the other options but you will be saving your heart from huge amounts of fatty oils so it is definitely worth the extra few pounds.
It comes in two sizes both a large and a family size and they vary in price from about £100 upwards. We took around online and found that the tefal actifry shop was the cheapest option here in the UK anyway so if you are interested head on over there and pick one up as we think they’re great.
