Really, there is such thing as food that’s low-fat and deep-fried? If you’re a big fan of all things ‘frites’ then this may be something you’ll want for Christmas: introducing the T-Fal ActiFry Low-Fat Deep Fryer Multi-Cooker.

So what’s the catch? This machine uses a revolutionary “heat pulse system” to infuse small amounts of oil into food, producing similar results to foods usually soaked in deep vats of hot oil. Yes, I’m talking the crispy, crunchy, tasty ones we go cuckoo for. It’s time to stop feeling eater’s remorse when you indulge in all your deep-fried favorites, like French fries, crab rangoon, eggrolls, fish, plantains, falafels, churros, chimichangas, empanadas, tempura, etc. If you stick a low-fat cheesecake in there, would it be then be acceptable to eat a deep-fried cheesecake?
Enjoy homemade fried foods with this deep fryer that features heat pulse technology for quick and easy cooking. An included recipe book helps you prepare tasty meals and snacks.
Compared to traditional deep fryers on the market, this model is more compact and won’t produce odors that permeate your walls, drapes, carpet and clothes. It only makes sense, since the cooker requires 1 tablespoon of oil as opposed to 1 or more quarts of oil. That also means you won’t have to deal with thick, greasy oil residue that’s next to impossible to clean off regular deep fryers. Instead of reusing oil that eventually gets stale, you will only use fresh oil each time you fry. It’s economical and versatile, because certain dishes taste better cooked in peanut oil, while Asian dishes would be enhanced with the use of sesame oil. Also, you won’t have to buy expensive bottles of oil to produce one particular dish. Most of the components included in the ActiFry are dishwasher-safe, so that’s a huge bonus on top of fulfilling deep-fried fantasies.
It’s too bad that the whole “Freedom Fries” controversy debauched the two words in question; because this new miracle of a food gadget is one I’d love to rename the “Freedom Fryer.” Ironically, the company T-Fal as well as the ActiFry itself, come straight from France.
