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.

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.

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!

My Mum bought this Health Fryer for my birthday as she knows how I try to have a healthy life style. Well I can say the Breville Halo Health Fryer is wonderful. It cooks food really well with very little oil needed and the end result is great. Homemade chips are crunchy in the out side and light and fluffy on the inside. Fish is moist when cooked and my roast potatoes and other veg have so much flavor. I would recommend the Breville Halo Health Fryer to any one that want's great testing with the smallest amount of oil needed. The Halo Health Fryer is also very easy to clean and very quiet when working. Really love my Halo. Thanks to Breville for making it and Mum for getting it for me.

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.

If you are thinking of investing in a health fryer then this Breville model will certainly be a strong contender. The Halo Health Fryer offers all the essential features most potential purchasers will be looking for: firstly a device which is easy to use with clear instructions. Secondly, one which is very easy to clean so that you don't spend more time washing it than cooking with it. Thirdly and most importantly this machine gives you the rich, full flavour of fried food with a minimum of oil. The claim that you only need one spoon of oil is true and the food that emerges at the end of the cooking process is dry in the best sense of the word with no oil or fat clinging to the food. So far we have cooked chicken, fish and chips all with great success although apparently you can also do things like baked potatoes in it. If you have people in the family with health issues like high cholesterol or diabetes like we do, then this really does open up the possibility of enjoying foods that seemed lost to you. However, everyone can benefit from the taste and lower fat content food that can be prepared in this fryer. To give you some idea of cooking times, a serving of chips for 3 or 4 people will take 30 minutes to cook-not particularly fast, but well worth waiting for if the chips are as good as this. Over the years, we have bought many kitchen gadgets and quite a lot are now gathering dust in the back of cupboards-not this one though. This is a device which will become a regular feature of our kitchen equipment and if you are looking at the price tag and wondering if you will get your money's worth from it, then you can buy with confidence on this occasion. Recommended.
