A while back, my mother-in-law gave us a T-fal Actifry that she had. I had never seen one before, but I was excited to try it. I love this thing! Especially now that I’m doing Whole 30, and I eat a lot of sweet potato fries.
I am not endorsed or paid by T-fal for this entry, this is just my honest review. 🙂
What it does: It’s a low-fat fryer and multi-cooker. You can cook various things using a lot less oil than you normally would. You can make a ton of fries using only a tablespoon of oil.
I love it mainly for sweet potato fries. I always had a hard time making perfect sweet potato fries because they can be tricky. I’d bake them, but they end up being too limpy or burnt. And I didn’t like frying them, and the couple of times I tried they ended up burnt.
Sweet potato fries are super easy in the Actify. All you have to do it peel and slice your sweet potatoes and place them into the Actifry,
And sprinkle with your seasonings and just a tablespoon of oil, and turn it on and set the timer for 40-45 minutes. The ceramic plate will spin and distribute the hot air, oil and seasoning evenly while it cooks:
When the time is up, you will have perfect, evenly seasoned sweet potato fries, that aren’t burnt or soggy!
You can use the Actifry for a variety of different foods, like vegetables, chicken wings, fajitas, risotto, and almost anything you can think of, and you and can find some recipes on their website. I love it because I don’t have to use too much oil, and it distributes the oil and seasonings evenly, so I never end up with over-oiled soggy fries or burnt fries.
I’ve also done veggies in the Actifry, and they were great. Overall, I would recommend it, especially if you love to make sweet potato fries a lot, like I do.
- 2 medium sweet potatoes
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into 1/2 inch strips.
Rinse the fries with water and dry.
Place the fries into the Actifry. Sprinkle the seasonings and the oil over the fries.
Turn the Actifry on and cook for 40-45 minutes.
Remove fries fro Actifry. Serve and Enjoy!

Hi, does it get mushy when you make it like that?
Hi Emdee. Mine did not get mushy when I followed this recipe. But you can always try to drain the sliced potato slices on some paper towels by sprinkling them with a little salt as well and I have heard that helps as well. I did not and mine turned out like the photo. 🙂
Thanks for the recipe. Did you also make eggplants in it? If so, how did you do? We have just bought an ActiFry Genius and we love fried eggplants. But I cannot find a recipe for that so far.
So, hopefully you could help me. 🙂
Well I’m always up for trying new recipes but….. this one failed BIG. Followed to a TEE and was left with a ball of some what semi cooked sweet potatoes. I’d like to provide pics but not sure how to post them.
