What is the T-Fal ActiFry?
Everyone enjoys fried foods but don't want the extra fat associated with them. The T-Fal ActiFry is a unique alternative to traditional deep fryers. It cooks food differently, making it possible to enjoy your fried favorites again. The low fat multi-cooker uses just a teaspoon of oil to create tasty homemade meals. This cooked method was developed as a result of a patented design and technology. The ActiFry used pulsating heat technology with an automatic stirring paddle to evenly distribute the oil used to cook a meal.
The ActiFry has a ceramic-coated non-stick pan that is easy to remove and clean with a transparent lid that cooks steam-free. The bowl can also be cleaned in a dishwasher. ActiFry comes in black or white to match any kitchen design. Now French fries are no longer a no-no and you can nibble on them without guilt. The ActiFry can be used to make all kinds of foods including meat, vegetables, poultry, fruits, grains and desserts. It transforms a variety of foods into low-calories, health-conscious meals. What will all of this cost? The appliance is available for about $250 at retailers such as Target and Bed, Bath and Beyond. At that price, buyers want to know it really works.
