A product endorsement from the self styled Queen of Chat Shows – Oprah Winfrey – is surely worth millions of bucks, but in a gesture of goodwill and some might say excitement, the richest African American of the 20th century has put her name to, of all things, a fat fryer, the T-Fal ActiFry Fryer. But this is no ordinary fat fryer, this fat fryer uses only a tablespoonful of oil, and as such, Ms Winfrey says it has changed her eating habits and her life.
Oprah posted up a picture on her Twitter account of herself holding the T-Fal ActiFry Fryer, and tweeted below it about how happy she was to name the brand, and she publicly stated that for the record, the company weren’t paying her. The 59 year old. born in Mississippi tweeted: “This machine T-Fal ActiFry has changed my life. And they’re not paying me to say it.”
Ms Winfrey has struggled with her weight, and all in the public eye, and was clearly delighted to have discovered such a product that meant she could still enjoy her favourite French Fries and other fried foods. “This entire plate of crispy fries, 1tblspn oil. Delicious with my veggie burger.”
For those of you that haven’t seen the adverts for the T-Fal ActiFry Fryer, it is a low fat cooker that enables you to cook tasty dishes while reducing the amount of fat you are having.

Moreover the T-fal ActiFry heating system and stirring paddle combine to cook your food to perfection, hands free! No pre-heating is required; it’s ready when you are.
All you need to do to make French fries in ActiFry is simply place 2 pounds of freshly cut French fries into the removable pan, drizzle over 1 tablespoon of your preferred oil, and set the timer.
