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.

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.

We decided to give the Breville Halo Fryer a try seeing as we are currently trying to eat a little healthier. It was also significantly cheaper on the highstreet than through Amazon! We have cooked homemade chips in the oven with frylight before, but you tend to find your chips stick to the foil and they fall to bits when trying to remove them from the oven.

We purchased the Breville Halo Fryer thinking that we would get better results and although the results were initially better than cooking homemade chips in the oven, there were a number of issues with this product.

As mentioned by other reviewers, the design of the paddle results in the chips occasionally becoming trapped in the mechanism. We didn't find this caused the paddle to stop moving around, however did result in the chips becoming a bit damaged and mashed up at times. This doesn't appear to be a fault, but simply a design flaw.

For those who purchase this item and think that its fault as soon as the halogen light goes out – this is normal. Halogen oven's tend to turn off when they get to a certain temperature as they get hot quick and keep their heat well. So don't be alarmed if your device starts turning off and on again from time to time.

We initially found that the chips were cooked well, the preparation time was probably similar to having to part boil homemade chips and then placing them in the oven. They tasted much nicer however and tasted very healthy and not stodgy at all.

If you get one of these and it works, there is a massive list of things you can cook in this device. You can cook chips, sausages, chicken, nachos and loads more!

Unfortunately after a few uses, we found the product didn't seem to be getting up to temperature.

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.

UPDATE AFTER REPLACEMENT RECEIVED.

well i was expecting better.

The new Breville Halo arrived.

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!

I read the reviews and was not to sure with the negatives about the Paddle, so i decided to buy and if the paddle didnt work then id leave it ou. but i have to say the paddle is fantastic im not sure what people are going on about, the paddle simply sits in place and turns my chips around and cooks evenly, it also works great on Sausages my sausages were like as if id fried them, only but not cooked in oil, same with my veg, i did raw beetroot, parsnips, carrot's, mushrooms, peppers, cooked beautiful, ok it does take about 35 mints to cook chips,but this is not a problem for me, and they taste good, play around with different potatoes i use Maris piper these make good chips, iv not cooked chicken yet but il leave a update on how it goes.
