While the new ActiFry from T-fal can cook anything from seafood to risotto to even desserts, its biggest claim to fame is being able to cook up to 2lbs of fresh cut french fries using just a spoonful of oil. Now you might be asking yourself, “how is such a thing possible when my local McEatery uses a tank of oil deep enough to hide a nuclear sub?” Well my first guess would have been stolen alien technology, since I’ve never seen an overweight extra-terrestrial, but it turns out the ActiFry uses a patented stirring paddle and pulse heating system to cook up crispy fries that are considerably better for you. (When using a healthy oil of course.)
Now I still wouldn’t recommend eating french fries every day (4 years of college proved that to be an unhealthy experiment) but the ActiFry seems like a far better alternative to a vat of scalding hot oil sitting on your kitchen counter. $299.99 from Amazon.
