Today on Gadget Girl Wednesday I am reviewing the T-fal ActiFry Low-Fat Healthy Multi-Cooker. I first saw this product in an infomercial one early Sunday morning. With most informercials I thought it sounded to good to be true, but this product is actually really amazing. I have to admit that my mom, although being very supportive of my low carb lifestyle, secretly craves fried foods when ever she comes into town for a visit. With the help of the T-fal ActiFry we are able to meet somewhere in the middle. With this product I am able to make cauliflower pops, zucchini fries, coconut shrimp, and spicy buffalo wings. What makes this gadget unlike other fryers is that it only needs one tablespoon of oil….that’s it! No more vats of peanut oil under your sink. It works by circulating the heat with a slow turning mixing blade. This allows the food to cook to a nice crispy crunch without being loaded with grease. So for once you can eat fried foods and not feel bad about it.
For the cauliflower pops all I did was sprinkle cajun spice and garlic salt over half a head of cauliflower that I had broken up into small bite sized pieces. I drizzled the one tablespoon of oil over the top, turned on the T-fal ActiFry, set the time to 40 minutes, and stood back and watched. The cauliflower came out perfectly golden and crispy. This would be a great appetizer for a party or a great healthy snack for the kids when they get home from school.
Check back in later for more recipes using the T-fal ActiFry.
