Forget all about traditional deep fat fryers, greasy fried food and messy, time-consuming oil changes. Say goodbye to unpleasant odours and the bothersome chore of turning over oven chips. This high-tech fryer makes delicious snacks and dishes (almost) by itself. And although it uses a mere 14ml (0.5 oz) of oil for a whole two pounds of crisps - around 99% less than the 2-3 litres (0.4-0.7gal) used by traditional deep fat fryers – everything is crisp and golden brown on the outside and succulent on the inside. The German newspaper FAZ wrote on 22.11.2007: They turn out just right and have an incredible and unadulterated potato taste. The secret: Hot air and brilliant automated stirring.
Compared to traditional deep fat fryers, your chips, croquettes or chicken nuggets no longer swim in boiling, dangerously spatting fat. And there’s no oven to pre-heat. Place your fresh or frozen food in the non-stick coated fryer with just 1 measuring spoon (supplied) of cooking oil. A rotating paddle continuously turns the food. The constant contact with the oil makes the food brown and crispy all over.
At the same time, a pulsating 170°C stream of air gently cooks your food. It’s so easy to vary the flavour and aroma of your fried dishes.
Fine walnut or olive oil, sesame, soy or sunflower oil, aromatic herb, garlic or chilli oil... You can use any flavoured cooking oil you like for healthy and delicious variations. The ActiFry technology conserves almost all nutrients, vitamins and the important Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids. Ideal too for crunchy vegetable and delicate meat stir-fries, crisp scampi, fish and potato dishes – and much more.....and so easy to clean.
Simply wash the cooking vessel, paddle and removable lid in the dishwasher. Wipe the easy-care plastic housing with a damp cloth. Measures 31cm (12") in diam., 20cm (8") high, weighs ca. 4kg (8.8 lbs). 1.20m (3ft9") power cord for 130V/1400W. Timer runs on round cell battery (supplied). 2-year manufacturer's guarantee.
