The actifry is the first in a series of new products by t-fal that are designed to revolutionize the way we make our favorite foods. The "nutritious & delicious" line of products by t-fal make your foods in a more healthy way- but keep the flavors and textures that you love. The actifry features a unique patented technology that combines an exclusive heating system and stirring paddle, so that you can cook great tasting fresh homemade French fries with just 1 tablespoon of your favorite oil (making a French fry with only 3-percent fat content vs. 16-18-percent fat in a regular fry). It's also much more that, you can make a variety of dishes such as meats, poultry, risotto, seafood, granola, & desserts. Plus clean up is a breeze, actifry features a removable bowl, lid, filter and tablespoon- all of which are dishwasher safe (and most importantly- no oil to dispose of!). The unit comes with a handy booklet that features 30 different recipe ideas. The product is endorsed by food network host/author/registered dietician elide krieger! Tablespoon of your favorite oil!
