Looking at some of the reviews on Amazon this deal should get very HOT!! lol
So hot, it's burning up!!!
Great price, but think I'll just stick to oven chips :)

I tried one form Ideal World and it went back within a few days. The instructions stated 40 minutes for up to 1kg of chips which seems rather long to me. The lecky reader was showing double than that of the old fryer. Also, had to phone Tefal regarding cooking frozen fish and they didn't recommend it. In fact, they suggested it should only be used for fresh food.
Others may have happier stories but for me, 90% of my cooking is from frozen :(

Interesting comment on the power usage. My mate has one and It's pretty much used soley for chips. Really nice mind you.

He's on his 2nd one as the 1st broke after a year or so.
Why were you tring to cook frozen fish?

lmao frozen fish, stick in in the oven or buy some fresh and batter it yourself
#6
Can you cook battered chicken and fish in this, or will the rotar slosh it about and ruin it. Would like to make my own KFC.

wok + oil = good times

I bought one of these 21 months ago and was delighted with it. Chips were great even oven ready ones cooked evenly and crispy.
Then one day whilst cokking chips I was alerted to a burning plastic smell. I detected the source, the Actifry was melting, it was glowing red and black smoke poured from it and some flames started to appear. I switched off at the mains. it terrifies me to think what might have happened if i had not been in the kitchen at the time.

I went on the web to track down Tefal to report the problem and was amazed at the number of reports of the Actifry catching fire, it was even reported on Watchdog as being a problem. Tefals response so far has been we can sell you another one for 30% discount or give you an address where you can get it repaired (at my expense).

Please please if you are going to purchase this be very careful, especially if you have children around.


No thanks I think I will stick to the oven chips....

The same happened with ours, TWICE.

First time it happened after 7 months of purchase, returned to COSTCO who gave us a full refund.

Bought another one and the same happened after 11 months, again returned to COSTCO for a full refund.

Bought the new model from COSTCO (the black one, also available from Amazon for £138), has been running for just over a year now, doesn't seem to have this problem but can't be sure, yet :-)

Apart from this problem, it's a great buy and worth every penny.

These break and set fire so don't really want to pay out over a ton for the privilege.
#13
Can't see this this beating some of the nicer brands of oven chips, and sounds like it would have burnt your house down long before it paid for itself based on peeling and cutting your own!

I was going to buy one today until I saw the Watchdog issue, full info available here btw.

seriously! dont believe any of those negative comments, these things are incredible!! I chuck frozen food in it all the time and it comes out gorgeous! I was cooking frozen plain chicken breasts straight in with alittle paprika! Yummy! And you can cook oven chips in there without any oil, just nicer than cooking in the oven!

You might be better of buying McCain crispy oven fries (Red Packet)

These taste like fried chips straight out the oven and only cost around £1.50 for 1kg and are often discounted at Asda.

Not sure how healthy they are though?

That's from Nov 2008. I would imagine they've fixed any issues since then.

We've had ours for 2 years and no problems at all.

There is no denying these are excellent for low fat chips and other dishes, but mine has just made popping noises with smoke. Mine is just 2 years old.
