I received compensation for this post in the form of a T-fal Actifry in order to perform my review of the product. All opinions are strictly my own.
I recently had the chance to try out an ActiFry from T-fal. Now, T-fal is one of my favorite brands to start with, their products are always high quality, so I was excited to be able to try out the ActiFry.
The T-fal ActiFry is a Parent Tested/Parent Approved winner as well. The first thing that impressed me, right out of the box was the controls. You only have two buttons, one powers it on and the other you use to set the timer. It couldn’t get any simpler than that! I also liked how, with the press of a button, the handle came up and you can lift the pan right out of the unit, making it so easy to clean! And it’s all ceramic non stick, which makes it even better. I hate having to scrub dirty pans!
The T-fal ActiFry also comes with a small recipe book, giving you ideas of things you can cook in it, the first thing we tried was french fries, I love french fries, but I hate the greasy mess. (Next thing I’m trying is the Sesame Beef with Broccoli, and I’ll post on here how that goes, it looks scrumptious!). I am always looking for healthier ways to cook for my family, as well as ways to make cooking simplified so I get to spend as much time as possible out of the kitchen, and the T-fal ActiFry fits the bill, as well as helping me to cook healthier meals especially during the typical Back to School hectic days!
I opted making my fries from fresh potatoes rather than the frozen variety and I love potato skin so I opted to leave the skin on instead of peeling them.
As you can see in the video, for that big batch of french fries, it only took just the small measuring spoon full of oil, to come out with some really awesome, not greasy, home fries! They were delicious and cooked to perfection! I was really happy with the whole process!
