The Breville Halo Health Fryer

Heavenly good cooking, with just one spoon of oil--or none

What if you could fry chips and other food using just one spoon of oil? Or no oil at all?

Imagine how much fat you could cut while still enjoying the full flavours of your favourite comfort foods.

The Breville VDF065 Halo Health Fryer presents the healthier way to fry chips and cook a wide range of ‘heavenly good’ food. This health fryer includes a halogen-heating element and rotating bowl with paddle, as well as a reversible roasting rack.

From spring rolls to chicken korma, fresh fish to crispy chips, satisfy your taste buds today

So, just what can you do with the Halo?

  • Fry
  • Cook
  • Bake
  • Sauté
  • Roast

The Halo uses just one spoon of oil when required. That’s 99.5% less oil than a standard 3 litre fryer. Plus, it uses no oil whatsoever when cooking oven chips and frozen foods.

The bowl design and removable paddle allow for complete versatility to cook not only chips, but even more delicate foods such as fish. The Halo caters for fresh or frozen foods, coated or uncoated chicken and fish, crispy chips, succulent chops, tasty spring rolls and spicy samosas. Creamy chicken korma or a hearty red wine sausage casserole can also be prepared. You can even cook mouth-watering sausages, homemade burgers or steak.

Use the Breville Halo Fryer’s roasting rack to cook smaller, delicate foods such as fish, sausage or roast chicken.

Rotating paddle, convection heat and roasting rack make cooking simple

The raised position of the element allows heat to radiate, producing crispy, golden chips.

Seasoning, herbs and spices can be added while cooking or afterwards. Plus, the unit is fan-assisted, so the convection heat is distributed throughout the bowl--meaning food is cooked quickly and evenly.

The Halo also has a rotating paddle, which cleverly turns ingredients. This eliminates the need to manually shake and turn food.

The paddle can also be removed to cook more delicate items such as fish and chicken or to steam puddings.

You'll also get a reversible roasting rack, which raises the food and allows excess oil to drain off. This works great for sausages or a small roast chicken, for example.

Breville Halo Health Fryer dual heat system

With instant heating, the Halo is ready to cook when you are

No pre-heat time is required. The halogen element provides an instant heat source. The element also illuminates the bowl’s interior, so you can easily view the cooking progress.

Easy-to-use digital controls allow you to time cooking and monitor the countdown. When cooking is complete, the Halo automatically turns off and beeps to alert you. The cool-touch handle clips to the bowl, allowing you to simply remove the bowl and serve immediately.

The Halo is as easy to clean as it is to cook with. Once cool, the inner bowl, paddle and roasting rack can be easily removed and cleaned in the dishwasher. The lid can be wiped clean.

As a bonus, you also get a recipe book filled with ideas for tasty starters, main meals and desserts. You’ll find the recipe book inside the Halo’s instruction booklet.

I bought the Breville Halo Fryer a few days ago.
I had read all the reviews on Amazon.
After being a lover of the actifry, but had to admit although they do what they say the actifry is badly designed.

So I as my last Actifry had just gone in the bin, I decided to give the Breville a try.

The Breville arrived and it was well packed as expected.
Once out of the box I noticed that compared to the Actifry it was more solidly built.
The materials used where of better standard and quality.
The Breville looks smart and although is a bit larger than the Actifry, i like the look of this machine.

After reading the instructions I decided to cook some chips with real potatoes not frozen.

I placed my chips in the Breville after rinsing them and patting them dry.
I put in the required amount of oil.
Set the timer and off it started.
No problem at first, but within a couple of minutes, the paddle began to stall, it was struggling to push the chips around.
I took the chips out and put them back in again, ensuring the paddle was place inside properly, but still had the same problem. In the end I had to take out the paddle and let the chips cook without the paddle.
This meant that every few minutes i had to open the machine and shake the chips to ensure they were cooked evenly.
The chips in my opinion were far better than the ones out of my old Actifry.

I have now contacted Amazon who are sending out a replacement. I am hoping that the one I have is faulty and the replacement will work fine.

I will post an update when I have tried the new machine.


well i was expecting better.

The new Breville Halo arrived.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the Actifry 29 Jun 2012
By Jaq

Great alternative to my actifry which as predicted, broke after one year's intensive useage. I miss my actifry but decided to give the Halo a go and I'm very pleased. It cooks in the same way but is a bit easier to clean AND you can take out the paddle for cooking delicate food like Salmon*. *This is what I've heard, I only ever cook chips in it to be honest and I use fry lite instead of oil for even lower fat chips. Cooks oven chips to perfection without having burnt bits / raw bits (you can go off and watch telly and forget about them). Great for dieters, have lost 7 1/2 stone with slimming world and this is perfect for syn free chips.

I know it's expensive BUT you can't put a price on your health!

4.0 out of 5 stars Paddle is no problem for me 28 Oct 2013
I was able to try somebody else's machine whilst house sitting. I'm not a fan of fried food or the stench of oil and grease, but I do like a gadget!

I cooked chunky shop bought chips on my first go and they turned out so beautifully crisp and tasty I was very impressed - enough to buy a machine for my own kitchen.I have since done root veg, chips from scratch and various other bits and bobs.

The instruction book has some recepies for dishes which are a bit less 'fry' so it is really like a small capacity halogen oven. I love that it stirs as it cooks, unlike a regular halogen oven.

Which brings me to the paddle... So far I have obeyed the very specific guide in the manual on the variety of potato to use and preparation method of the chip - although I add the oil to the chips before placing in the bowl and I also add salt at this stage because at the end of the cooking time the salt will just fall to the plate rather than on to the chip as they are so low fat. I have had no episodes of 'mash' or paddle sticking which may be due to the design having been updated or the fact that I only make a maximum of 10 potatoes worth of chips. I could certainly see the paddle being a problem if attempting to cook for a family or a decently sized blow out binge portion of chips!

If you look at this as more of a healthy/efficient cooking machine rather than putting the emphasis on Fryer, you might be slightly impressed. If you're living in a deep fat fryer world, then I really don't think this is the product for you. Personally, I love it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Load of rubbish 28 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase
I have always owned an actifry and use mainly for chips but after having two thought may try this halo as looked better. When first used it was lovely and quiet and was really impressed as actifry is noisier, but I was very dissapointed whne chips were finished after the 30 mins of cooking time, some were still raw and some were completely broken up and paddle was all gunged up with potato, I followed all instructions for chip size etc.

I tried it again the enxt day and chips were the same but this time the paddle kept getting stuck and making a awful noise, which meant I had to empty contents and start again which I had to do twice before it finally decided to work although the chips came out as before in a mushy mess.

I decided to email breville and ask if there was a problem with the fryers that they were aware of, they just steered me back to amazon who I bought it off and never answered my question.

I returned the product and had a replacement hoping that the first one was just faulty, well it wasnt as the second one does excatly the same and I spend the first 5 mins of cooking time having to release the stuck paddle, so this one is going back too, I am going to have a refund and go back to an actifry.
