Let’s be honest: French fries simply make you happy, but in the long run they also make you fat. But you still don’t have to do without fried potato wedges completely, because thanks to hot-air deep fryers like the Philips Airfryer you can prepare delicious chips with up to 80 percent less fat.

Hot air, similar to a convection oven, ensures that the fries are still nice and crispy. However, far less energy is consumed than in a conventional oven. In addition to French fries, you can also cook vegetables or meat in the appliance – which makes it quite versatile!

A crunchy salad, with a little vinegar and oil on top, and in the end the last green leaves are only floating in the fat. It is often difficult to estimate the right amount of oil. Eletorot’s oil spray makes it a lot easier. Simply spray a few times on the salad and the whole thing becomes a bit lighter and healthier.

4. for all who love juicy but low-fat meat: The frying pan

An inexpensive and at the same time ingenious tool for a healthy cuisine is a frying tube like the one from Toppits (from 1.99 €), because here juicy, tender meat succeeds even without swimming in fat. To do this, the meat is placed in the tube together with one or two spoons of water, everything is closed with a knot and a hole of one centimetre is cut in the middle of the tube.

The whole thing is then gently cooked in its own juice in the oven. This not only reduces the fat content, but also makes it taste more intense. The same applies to vegetables. They retain their vitamins and nutrients even better during the cooking process.

5. for noodle freaks: the spiral cutter

With the ELIRIVAWET spiral slicer, you can conjure up healthy noodles in no time at all, which you can then lightly fry in the pan and then mix into your normal spaghetti, for example. This really spices up the standard pasta dish and also makes it much lighter.
