Got our one for 57 last year via flubit, used daily, more or less replaced our oven for the majority of things, highly recommended,
heat added.

confused on the drip tray though?

Bought one of these to replace a clapped out actifry, personally I thought it was terrible, most food was burnt on the outside and still raw in the middle. returned it for another actifry.

Picked up one of these from Homebase when they were going for £30 (on an end-of-line clearance deal, I think?) and while it does make decent chips, that's about the limit of its use for me. Even then, the chips aren't really better than in a hot oven. Onion rings come out flattened and deformed.

Even when it's not tilted, it still doesn't lie perfectly flat so food slips downwards off the wire rack. There's also still a big "pillar" in the middle meaning you can only cook round the outside (i.e. if you wanted to cook a small pizza, you'd have to punch a hole in the middle of it first).

Bear in mind you can buy halogen ovens for £20, which is almost exactly what this is. I don't regret this for £30, but £75? They're having an absolute laugh.

Make sure you tilt it so the food moves around and cooks evenly, if you're somehow still not managing to cook stuff properly why not just use the lower power mode?, that would cook more thoroughly (only ever bother using that for chicken, as it keeps it nice and juicy).

Love mine, far better than a friends actifry, which just smashes stuff to pieces with its paddle of death. Incidentally the same friend is now looking for the best price on one of these to replace his actifry because he's used my Breville.

I don't even bother using the rack, everything cooks much better without it, suppose pizza as you mention but that's one of the few things I'd prefer to cook in a normal oven. As far as cooking chips in it, if you just chip a potato into it with a tiny bit of oil you get decent low fat chips. But if you experiment a bit you can make really delicious low fat chips/wedges. I do triple cooked wedges in their sometimes when my mates are over and they all love them.

Think you're doing it wrong, never had anything squashed or damaged, you'll also struggle to find any air fryer that fits a pizza oO the only ones what do fit in these are the chicago town minis, no issues with mine can cook anything in them, only use the wire rack for the likes of sausages and bacon really or other fatty meats, everything else goes on the bottom with no oil most of the time.

A halogen is nowhere near the same as this

Much better than an actifry when cooking large amounts of chips - still takes a long time with big batches but doesn't mash them up the way an actifry can. Makes awesome sweet potato chips!

No problems with food burnt on the outside / raw on the inside... no idea what earlier poster was on about.

It's a hell of a good sausage cooker. Also great for reheating slices of pizza (not whole pizzas though - not big enough).

Used almost daily for the last 2 years and still going strong. As earlier poster said, no idea why it has a drip tray.

Onion rings and other softer stuff gets squashed as a natural consequence of it tumbling around in the rotating drum. They turn out fine... just a bit oddly shaped.

To call this an air fryer is deceptive because (as I understand it) "real" air fryers actually atomise the oil and spray it across the food in droplets whereas this relies on the food being spun around in a small pool of oil in the base.

And c'mon, this is basically a halogen oven with a spinning base - same cooking elements and all. It's good, but would be so much better if they'd removed the pillar in the middle so large/flat stuff could be cooked.

I have this one and I've only ever done potatoes and chips, how do you cook sausage? on the rack or just in the bottom? thanx

I personally love mine, does great chips, roast potatoes and roast veg, and the best chicken breast we've had, cooks it perfect. Also used it for making bolognese, turned out lovely, so many things you can make in it.

Could you show me a product you do consider a true air fryer? All of them I've seen do nothing but heat the oil (which partially atomises it) and move the food in order to spread the remaining oil and turn the food to cook evenly. Just like this Breville fryer does.

The actify certainly does nothing more complicated or air-fryer-ish than this device. Only difference is with the Breville you don't have to worry about smashed up food and you have more options than the actifry gives you.

You can cook just with the air from the top or you can choose to cook from top and bottom (air blows from the top and the bottom heats the bowl at the same time). You can also tilt fully if the food you're cooking needs a good mix or if its more delicate food you can choose not to tilt. Its always very slightly tilted which helps to stop food sticking but that slight tilt won't shack stuff around so very delicate food won't get misshapen or damaged in any way.

I just do sausages in the bowl. You can use the rack to keep the sausages away from the fat that comes out of them. But I like how they cook more when they're allowed to flip and move around in the bowl. All I do for fat with sausages is open the Breville after 5 mins or so, drain any fat and give the bowl a quick wipe with a paper towel.

Incidentally chicken is great in this as well but I'd only use the top heat option rather than full heat. That keeps the chicken nice and juicy. Also just use the bowl not the rack for this. You can then add a marinade or spices as its cooking and chicken will be evenly basted in whatever marinade or spices you want.

Maybe for winter use?

I love mine but there is a small section in the bowl where the non stick
coating has come off. It doesn't affect it much though.

Had mine a year and never used it for more than spuds but will try more in it now I have read this thread.... Does amazing frozen chips by the way - really handy when I just want a few for myself when he is having some weird and wonderful flavoured rice! Bleugh....
