A healthy alternative for delicious home-made chips – only one spoon of oil, 100 times less than that of a traditional deep fryer, is required to cook enough crunchy hot chips for a family of four. These delicious hot chips contain only three percent fat compared with takeaway chips, which have a fat content of 16 percent.
Ten years of research by Tefal’s dedicated team of cooking technology experts have gone into the development of the ActiFry’s exclusive heat pulse system, which creates a sharp rise in cooking temperature to form the crust on the chip quickly, resulting in less oil being absorbed.
Thanks to a unique patented system that circulates hot air in the cooking enclosure and a central paddle that stirs the food and distributes the oil, the chips are cooked uniformly and are crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.
Cook more than just chips
Tasty hot chips are not the only thing that can be cooked with the versatile ActiFry. It is also suitable for preparing a whole variety of foods with a reduced fat content, including seafood, meat, vegetable stir-fries and even desserts.
New Tefal ActiFry is a revolutionary way to make a wide array of meals with minimal oil, including seafood, meat and vegetable stir-fries and even desserts. Hot chips for a family of four can be prepared with only one spoon of oil, 100 times less than that used in a traditional deep fryer.
This ground-breaking cooking method is sure to please dietitians watching obesity rates in Australia rise.
The way meals are prepared is just as important in limiting fat and kilojoule intake as the types of food eaten, and a vital key to controlling a range of major health issues such as diabetes and heart disease. The Tefal ActiFry can be used with a variety of heart-friendly oils to ensure that the small amounts of fats that are in the food are polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats essential for a balanced diet.
Accredited Practising Dietitian Dr Trent Watson said the Tefal ActiFry is a fantastic low-fat cooking option allowing people on-the-go to quickly and easily prepare a wide range of favourite family dishes. “The ActiFry is a truly low fat and healthy alternative to deep frying. It allows the combination of high quality ingredients with a small amount of oil to prepare quick, tasty and nutritious meals and is a great way for busy families to stay healthy,” said Dr Watson.
