Do you ever have to prepare lunch quickly? Are you short with time, but would you like to make something healthy?
We like potatoes in our family. Of course, children would prefer french fries. But since we know that fried foods are quite harmful, I resist even to think about it. To satisfy hungry stomachs, I prepare potatoes in Tefal’s Acta Fry. With a minimum amount of oil, you will prepare nicely baked potatoes on warm, dry air.
To get closer to the needs of our bodies, I offer my family members, next to the potatos, chicken steaks and a large bowl of salad.
Wondering what ActiFry is?
ActiFry is a fryer that only needs 3% of fat to prepare an excellent, healthy dish. That is, for 1 kg of food, you need one spoon of oil (included in the package). The removable, high-quality container is made of ceramic. You clean it easy. Ceramics prevents the food from sticking to the pot.
A container located inside the fryer allows the preparation of 1 kg of food. It means that it is enough to prepare a meal for a family of up to 4 members. We are 5 and, so far it is big enough to feed the whole family. 😃 There are also 1.5 l containers. Those have besides the main pot an additional meat layer. You can prepare two dishes at the same time. More below.
As moms are always in the move, there is something that helps us a little bit more. It is a spatula inside the pot that mixes the dish while cooking. Thus, when preparing food, it is not necessary to open the fryer and mix it. We can devote ourselves to other tasks. Meanwhile, the food bakes crispy and delightful.
On the LCD screen, you can monitor how much time separates you from your lunch.
ActiFry is not just for baking potatoes. You can also prepare other dishes in it. You can enjoy delicious vegetables, meat, and make desserts, sauces and much more. I also have chestnuts in it. However, you must be careful not to put too much on it to prevent damage to the blade. CAREFUL!!!
I also bake meat in it. To cook meat, I use a special mesh that I insert it into the bowl, into the place of the spatula. If you use this grid, I recommend that you put some drops of oil over the meat so that the meat does not dry out too much. When the baking is somewhere in the middle, I turn the steaks around, to evenly bake on both sides.
The use of ActiFry is no art. Set the timer and switch it on. When the time runs out, it alerts you with an acoustic signal. All you need to do is turn off the switch and load the dish on the plates.
Cleaning. A little snack. Put the pot, spatula, and lid in the dishwasher. Run a full dishwasher and the dishes will be clean 😉
With ActiFry fryer, you do not need to have bad feelings when consuming food.
To adjust to the cooking with this appliance, you will get the recipe booklet in the package. There is also an app called MyActifry, but I do not use it myself.
Easy to use
- No warming or mixing is required. It does it automatically, instead of us, the spatula.
- Allow it to cool before cleaning, to avoid damaging the material.
- Open the lid, lift the latch and remove the cover.
- Remove the spatula from the container.
- Lift the handle and remove the filter from the appliance.
- You can clean all detachable parts in the dishwasher. Of course, you can also wash them manually with a soft sponge and dishwashing detergent.
- Thoroughly dry them before installing all the parts.
Additional advantages I have detected for years of usage
In the summer, when I do not want to cook in the kitchen, so I do not warm up the apartment, I take Acti Fry, and I take it out. I fill it with the ingredients, I plug it into the electricity, and I set the time. The dish cooks it by itself because the mixing spoon ensures that the food is evenly cooked or baked. Meanwhile, I enjoy the shadows, or play with children, or read or continue with other tasks.
What makes me especially happy is that I do not need to wash the dishes by my hands, since I can wash it in a dishwasher.
