T-fal Actifry Deep Fryer

by MuminBusiness

When only real fries will do , then a T-fal Actifry Deep Fryer hits the Spot. Read on about the T-fal Actifry Deep Fryer family and where you can buy one wherever you are based.

My girls love their fries and so do I. there was a time, prior to having kids when I would only eat fries from a fast food joint or I would buy the oven fries you get at grocery stores. You know the ones I mean - They are in the frozen section of the grocery store. There is a part of you that wonders if they are actually potatoes but convenience wins out at the end of the day.

So you take your oven fries home, stick them on the oven dish and stick them in the oven. Or you might even get the microwave variety and they are ready even quicker. Open the door, stick them in, press a few buttons, wait a few minutes and hey presto, you have fries.

So where does the T-fal Actifry Deep Fryer come in?

My Turn towards Real Potatoes and the deep Fryer

I had Kids.

I wanted to become a bit of a healthier family.

So I started to cook food from scratch.  I started to buy real potatoes and peel them and slice them and discovered...

It really does not take that long!

And more importantly, everything tastes a whole lot better.  Mashed Potato tasted amazing and creamy, rather than the powdered variety that used to assault my taste buds.  Fries were heavenly and I never quite realized what I had been missing out on.

So now the quest was on to fry my fries in as little oil as possible so I turned to the Tefal Actifry deep fryer family.

The T-fal Actifry Family

The T-fal Actifry family caught my eye as I walked through the local appliance store as it somehow manages to fry potatoes using a miniscule amount of oil.  In fact, Tefal claim one spoonful of oil will cook your favorite food, whether potatoes or something else.

In this day and age of weight watching and healthy eating, this is a mighty claim indeed.

You can even stir fry vegetables in them - Not bad for a multi tasking gadget!  If that does not inspire you then think of the chicken wings you could fry in this thing for a fraction of the amount of fat and oil!

And the T-fal deep fryers come in a  range of prices to suit any budget and they arrive at your home with a recipe book as well.

The T-fal actifry deep fryers come practically completely apart for easy cleaning and if you ever had an oil pan, you know how sticky they can get so being able to easily dismantle this fryer is a great boon. 

Take a look on Amazon for people's reviews and more detail on the product.  It really is not bad!

How does the T-fal Actifry work?

The T-fal Actifry uses a novel system to fry things to perfection in a fraction of the oil a conventional deep fryer would require.  It is like a non stick pan in a continually rotating fan oven with the miniscule amount of oil frying any food it comes across as it goes round and round.

But, it is not just for french fries, it can make full meals too, like chili.  It is a very versatile piece of kitchen equipment.  It goes by the full name Tefal in the UK where the deep fryers were initially launched.  On rebranding for the US, it became T-fal for some reason.

While writing this article, it is actually the number 1 bestselling deep fryer on Amazon which shows that it is a hit with users.  In the UK, it received an award from the Good Housekeeping Institute.

More choice with the Tefal Actifry deep fryer UK

In the US, the T-fal comes in two colors - black and white - and one model.  In the UK, however, there is a bit more choice. (By a bit, I mean one other larger capacity model! - There are a few more but they look very similar so I have not included them).

Take a look at these Tefal fryers.









This Tefal ActiFry FZ700015 Low Fat Electric Fryer has a capacity of 1kg and comes in either white or black.

This Tefal ActiFry Family Fryer has a capacity of 1.5 kg so a lot more food can be cooked in it than the one above.
