Delonghi FH1130 MultiFry

The Delonghi brand is a household name that has been around for years. It’s known for introducing innovative products that not only outperform competition but also provide convenience for the customers. This is why it is not surprising that the company is introducing the Delonghi FH1130 MultiFry, a low-oil deep fat fryer. With this unit, you don't need to use a lot of oil to enjoy sweet tasting and delicious chips with your family. As a result, the Delonghi FH1130 MultiFry promises you a gateway to healthier and natural cooking.

If you are a family of two or just alone, you can try out different recipes like chips, bacon, chops, chicken, and baked potatoes with this fryer. Although the Delonghi FH1130 MultiFry works perfect with all these recipes, you cannot use it for grilling.

However, the advantage of this unit is that it is a hot air fryer which means when you use it to prepare foods like bacon, you’ll get much better taste than when you cook in an ordinary air fryer. This is because the food and the fats stay together in the pan, leaving your bacon with an excellent taste.
