the Nutritious & Delicious

Innovating for your health

Nutrition is of course about having a varied and balanced diet, but that is not all, because nutrition is about much
more than just the ingredients. The way you cook them plays an essential role in their nutritional and organoleptic
transformation (taste, texture and so on).
And because cooking appliances are not all equal in their capacities, 

has developed a range that is

devoted to NUTRITION FOR GREATER PLEASURE: ingenious utensils which preserve the food's nutritional integrity
and allow the true taste of the ingredients out.

Providing you with unique solutions

makes considerable investment into research in order to create appliances with unique nutritional

performances which are then confirmed by scientific studies.

Keeping you informed

and in a balanced diet, by:

To make your meals a real success, 

gives you hints and tips on potatoes and oils. 

Potatoes: balance and pleasure each and every day!

Potatoes are a great food for everybody at every age! They are an excellent source of energy and vitamins.
Depending on the variety, the climate and the way they are grown, there are a huge number of different kinds of
potato: shape, size, flavour. Each of them has its own characteristics in terms of seasonality, yield, size, colour,
conservation and culinary uses. The cooking results therefore vary depending on the origin and the season.

What variety should you be using with 

?

Generally speaking, we recommend that you use potatoes that are marketed as especially good for chips. For newly
harvested potatoes which have a high water content, we recommend that you fry them for a few extra minutes. 

also makes it possible to cook frozen chips. Because they are already precooked in oil, there is no

need to add any oil.

Where should I keep my potatoes?

The best places to keep potatoes are a good cellar or a cool cupboard (between 6 and 8°C), out of the light.

How should I prepare my potatoes for use with 

?

For the best results, you need to make sure that the chips do not stick to one another. To do this, we recommend
that you wash the whole potatoes thoroughly before cutting them and then once again when they have been cut,
until the water runs clear. This will enable you to remove as much starch as possible. Dry the chips carefully using a
dry and highly absorbent tea towel. The chips need to be perfectly dry before they are put into 

.

Remember the cooking time of the chips will vary according to the weight of chips and the batch of potatoes used.

How should I cut my potatoes?

The size of the chip has an influence on how crunchy or soft they are. The thinner your chips your chips, the
crunchier they will be and conversely, if they are very thick, they will be softer in the middle. Depending on what
you're looking for, you can vary how you cut your chips and adapt the cooking time accordingly:

Thin American style: 8 x 8 mm / Standard: 10 x 10 mm / Thick: 13 x 13 mm

Length: Up to approximately 9 cm

In ActiFry family the maximum recommended chip thickness is 13 x 13 mm and a length of up to 9 cm.

Vary the oils that are good for you

You can vary the type of oil depending on your choice or for different needs. Choose a different oil every time you
cook! All of them contain, in various proportions, those nutrients that are so essential for balanced diet. To provide
your body with everything it needs, vary your oils! With  

, you can use a whole variety of oils:

• Standard oils: olive, rapeseed*, grapeseed, corn, groundnut (peanut), sunflower, soya* 
• Flavoured oils: oils infused with herbs, garlic, pepper, lemon…
• Speciality oils: hazelnut*, sesame*, almond*, avocado*, argan* (*cooking time according to manufacturer).

Note: 

Some of these oils are not available in the UK.

Because it uses so little oil during cooking, 

enables you to preserve all of the good fats that you

need for your vitality.

With

and the oil you choose, your chips will be of a higher nutritional 

standard. Depending on your taste and what you're looking for, you can add an extra

spoonful of oil for that extra flavour! But this will increase the fat content.

With 

, make tasty, healthier chips 

for your family as a real treat!

ActiFry cooking hints and tips

• Do not add salt to chips while the chips are in the pan. Only add salt once the chips are

removed from the appliance at the end of cooking.

• When adding dried herbs and spices to ActiFry, mix them with some oil or liquid. If you try

sprinkling them directly into the pan they will just get blown around by the hot air system.

• Please note that strong coloured spices and strong coloured foods such as tomatoes, may

slightly stain the paddle and parts of the appliance. This is normal.

• For best results, use finely chopped garlic instead of crushed garlic to avoid it adhering to the

central paddle.

• If using onions in ActiFry recipes, they are best thinly sliced instead of chopped as they cook

better. Separate the onion rings before adding them to the pan and give them a quick stir so
that they are evenly distributed.

• With meat and poultry dishes, stop the apppliance and stir the pan once or twice during

cooking so that the food on top does not dry out and the dish thickens evenly.

• Prepare vegetables in small pieces or stir fry size to ensure they cook through.
• This appliance is not suitable for recipes with a high-liquid content (eg. soups, cook-in

sauces…).

* Not available in the UK.
