Hi-tech, low fat: the best 21st century heatlh fryers
14 Feb 2014|
Love the taste of a deep fry but scared about piling on the pounds? Well, get ready to indulge in those crispy deep fried snacks entirely guilt free, thanks to the latest range of low-fat, full flavour fryers available at Currys!
The first one we'll look at is the Tefal Actifry, priced at £169.99. This ingenious bit of technology might look like something you'd see attacking the Starship Enterprise on Star Trek: The Next Generation but, we can assure you, there's not a Klingon in sight; just 100% deep fried perfection.
The Tefal Actifry uses the latest low-fat fryer technology to bring you a healthier alternative to the traditional deep-fat fryer, perfect for frying all of your favourite foods like chips or chicken.
It needs just one spoonful of oil to cook 1.5kg of chips, meaning they turn out grease free and contain only 3% fat. It doesn't just work for chips either; you can cook a variety of foods in the Tefal Actifry, with everything from meat to fish and vegetables perfect for undergoing the deep fry treatment.
Distinctive features of this fryer include the large, steam-free viewing window that opens at the touch of a button and a unique paddle that rotates the food for even cooking. The lid, paddle and pan are all dishwasher safe, which makes for really easy maintenance.
Breville Halo Health Fryer
Another great deep fry option is the Breville Halo Health Fryer, currently on offer at Currys for a reduced price of £69.99. This versatile, family and budget friendly fryer can cook up to 1kg of chips using only a spoonful of oil.
What's great about this option is that it's a whole lot more than just a fryer - its smart technology lets you cook, bake, sauté and roast food, making it a great, all-round cooking appliance.
You can even take advantage of its double-action cooking facility, as the Breville Halo boasts both fan-assisted convection and radiated cooking, which helps to produce evenly cooked and tasty results every time!
Morphy Richards Intellichef
The final option we'll look at is the Morphy Richards Intellichef Multicooker, steamer and fryer. Boasting some eight cooking functions in one versatile and space-saving form, you can deep fry, stir fry, steam, braise, slow cook, fast stew, grill and boil with this baby. What's more, its 5 litre capacity means you can feed the whole family in just one serving.
Whilst perhaps not looking as futuristic as the previous two options, this multicooker makes up for style with simplicity, providing a clear temperature display and glass lid to make sure you never undercook or overcook your food.
With modern style and intelligent features, this more-than-a-fryer is a steal at £54.99. Happy, healthy cooking!
So, that's the lowdown on some of the hi-tech, low-fat fryers that we have on our offer at Currys. For more options, take a look at our complete complete selection of fryers!
