Actifry Review & Giveaway!

As a mom, there are so many things I look for when shopping for new appliances. I want them to clean themselves, be sleek and nice looking, easy to use and produce things that are not only fat free, but something that the entire family can enjoy.

So-let’s be real. There probably isn’t a product out there that can accomplish my lofty goals. However, I was lucky enough to find one that comes relatively close. Actifry is a nice looking contraption. It comes in neutral black or white and is shiny with a transparent lid. This means it looks good in a kitchen and cuts down on mess. By cooking in my Actifry there was only one piece of equipment that needed to be cleaned.

Actifry is a multi-use machine
. We all know that frying food is not only a poor choice for kids delicate digestive systems, but for our overall family’s health. Actifry is innovative in that it creates the same general cooking goal through use of one tablespoon or less of oil! It also can create anything from roasted sunflower seeds to soups and sauces to noodles or even a warm salad.

I personally tried out the Actifry in making a family favorite: french fries. We put a special twist on this classic side dish by using sweet potatoes and the fries turned out better than I’ve ever made before! They were easy to eat guilt free and I didn’t feel bad about serving them with dinner and letting my kids enjoy them. Actifry turned out to be super easy to use and I already have plenty of other recipes I’m looking forward to trying out the next time I have guests over or simply want a low fat, easy cook option.

GIVEAWAY: You can get an Actifry of your own (normally valued at $249)! Visit the Actifry recipe page and once you’ve browsed through the options, leave a comment on this post with a recipe of your own that you’d like to cook if you win one.

Disclosure: I received a free Actifry for the purposes of this review and compensation for administering an Actifry giveaway. However, all opinions are my own.

    The chick pea fry on there looked really good.
    Not having ever used an actifry- I will guess at the recipe- but at home i make my own “home made chick fil a nuggets”
    where i cut up chicken into big cubes, dredge through egg, cover in a mix of italian bread crumbs with salt and pepper to taste.
    Fry until golden brown and a little crispy like fried chicken.
    at home I do this in a quarter inch of olive oil but I would like to use much less oil!

  33. I see they have jalapeno poppers, but I bet I could whip up some delicious breaded, fried cheese curds! So easy with some fresh mozzarella, olive oil, and panko! And soooooo yummy!
