I’m already loving this product, and I haven’t even tried it yet.

The T-fal ActiFry is part of the Nutritious & Delicious Series of T-Fal products, designed to shake up the way we prepare our favorite meals.

The unique selling feature of the ActiFry is that it cooks food in a healthier way but still retains the same flavors and textures we’ve come to expect from our favorite eats.

Take fries for example. The appliance features a unique patented technology that combines a heating system and stirring paddle to somehow cook up tasty homemade fries with just 1 tablespoon of oil!

That means 1 spoonful of oil in the ActiFry can cook up to 2 pounds of french fries – enough to feed a family of four. I know, hard to believe!

That equates to one french fry with only 3% fat content in the ActiFry vs. up to 18% fat in a fry prepared the traditional way. Mind you, you have to use good oil of course (like olive or canola), to achieve those low-cal results.

It’s versatile too – the ActiFry can be used to prepare meats, poultry, fish, risotto – even granola and desserts. With little to no oil required.

So not only does it create lower-fat versions of the foods we all love, but because there’s so little oil required, it means a safer cooking experience and virtually no oil to dispose of either.

Watch it in action here.

The ActiFry is currently available in Europe under the Tefal brand. You can find it in North America in select kitchen supply stores and specialty retailers, or you can pre-order one now for $299. That way, you’re ready to rock when it hits the masses.
