Make french fries and other fried food with less oil


My daughter and I have been on a Dim Sum kick lately, and that means lots of fried dumplings (if only because that's the kind we like best) along with doses of high fat guilt. So I'm happy and relieved to know that there's an alternative way to have fried food that doesn't involve a deep fryer. The Tefal Actifry uses a small amount of oil and circulating hot air to cook foods like french fries so that they're crunchy on the outside, moist on the inside, and only 3% fat. You can also use it to cook other vegetables and meat (fried chicken sounds good). All pieces, except the base, can go in the dishwasher.

No information on whether this product is available in the U.S., but UK store Lakeland sells it for £150.

I don't know if Hungry Girl would approve of this since the food coming out of this fryer isn't completely devoid of fat, but it definitely meets my looser low-fat standards.

Via Kitchen Contraptions.
