Breville Halo Health Fryer Review
It gives you the same results with 99.5 less fat in your meals. You don’t just get to enjoy crispy and golden brown chips, that’s normally only possible with some of the best deep fat fryers available, but you get the added advantage of the complete versatility of frying a variety of foods, all healthier, that also gives you the best taste satisfaction every time, without fail.
Honestly, you’d be amazed how effective the cooking is with the Breville Halo Health Fryer. The technology it uses is convection heat, with halogen technology. The unit is fan-assisted which ensures the heat is evenly distributed, throughout the cooking process, ensuring your food is cooked right through.
How does the Breville Halo Health Fryer do this?
Some of even the best deep fat fryers can still produce food with a good crunch to it, and then when you hit the middle, you can still find it’s soft and gooey.
The fan-assisted convection heat takes care of this for you. The Breville Halo Health Fryer also incorporates a rotatable paddle, for turning your food, ensuring it’s crispy and crunchy all round. Don’t worry about more tender foods like fish, as the paddle can be removed.
To make best use of the Breville Halo Health Fryer, it also comes with a reversible roasting rack. These are ideal for your fish fingers, steaks, crispy fried chicken, crispy roast potatoes or even baked potatoes. You just remove the paddle, lay your food on the roasting rack and the Breville Halo Health Fryer, will cook it to perfection, using the convection heat, fan-assisted technology and the superb design of having the raised roasting rack, so that excess oil, just drips onto the bowl below.
The bowl’s dishwasher safe and non-stick coated, so that’s easy to clean too. Just as you’d expect.
If you’re unsure of the times you need to cook your food, the heating elements are also handy for illuminating the bowl, letting you monitor the cooking process throughout. There’s also a digital timer you can use to preset the cooking time, and then when it’s done, just like a microwave, it’ll turn itself off and beep to alert you that you’re dinner’s ready to be served.
Even if you had one of the best deep fat fryers available, you’ll probably never go back to it, once you get a taste of the food that’s cooked with the Breville Halo Health Fryer.

The one drawback, the Breville Halo Health Fryer has…
When you’re cooking fresh chips, and not the frozen ones, depending on the thickness of the chips, you can find the rotating paddle can be an inconvenience. Real potato chips have a tendency to get caught on the paddle. That said though, if you’re going to frying real potato chips, with Maris Piper potatoes or other good quality ingredients, just remove the paddle from the unit and use the roasting rack instead. That works great with Maris Piper potatoes.
