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.
