So it was my partner’s 21st birthday the other day and he wanted a tefal actifry. Don’t ask why – we’re like an old couple really, we like kitchen appliances.
So today I used it. I got him the tefal actifry express XL because he is hell bent on having something that’s ‘future proof’ and it was on offer for Black Friday. (It’s normally £250 but I got it for £160).
I highly recommend it, but a cheaper model perhaps. The actifry mini makes two portions and is frequently on offer at £99.99.
So it’s chip time, and I cut up 150g peeled Maris piper potatoes into chip sized chunks.
Oh they do look good.
So I put them into the actifry like so… And I only put one portion worth in there but the capacity is 1.5kg if anyone’s interested on this particular model!
So it’s famous that 1kg of crispy chips only needs 1 spoon of oil – as I was only making one portion I used a minimal amount of oil.
For a single portion of chips in the express actifry I set it for 20 minutes to create crispy, beautiful chips.
So they started looking quite nice and crispy.
And can I just say how impressed I was with this machine! It’s amazing. These chips are genuinely crispy and seriously 100 times better than any chips I’ve ever had from a deep fat fryer before.
Hey fish and chips – looking good.
