Back in June, I had the pleasure of attending T-fal’s Actifry Express launch party in Toronto.
I didn’t go in with high expectations. I had heard of these “Actifry gadgets” before and never been too intrigued with them. They are promoted as healthier fryers, which only use about 1 tablespoon of oil for 5-6 servings of food.
“Time-constrained families often opt for takeout or drive-thru, which is a contributing factor to Canada’s troubling obesity rate. The convenience and innovation of the Actifry Express allows families to prepare healthy meals they love at home in a healthier way, without sacrificing flavour.” — Senior Product Manager for T-fal Innovations in Canada
From my past experiences, I get really excited about new, fancy kitchen gadgets for about 3 weeks and then I never use them again. But, I was still looking forward to seeing what this new (express version) Actifry had to offer. I also got to meet and speak with the author of Street Food Diaries, Chef Matt Basile — what a treat!
