Just research the Actifry before you buy if you haven't already. I sent one back after 1 month - bits cracking and breaking off all over the place

Will this play Crysis?

Loking at specs this is just a halogen oven which are usually around the £50 mark. The other fryers like the actifrys work in a different way.....

a good friend gave me her actifry, and never had any problems with it, had it for two years now! just must be luck of the draw with these machines!

no it does both, it is a actify, and then you can remove the paddle and use it as a halogen oven

Heat added.........together with sparks, smoke and a hint of flame

The one on Amazon is a better deal as that is 1200W, this is 1000W.

Hmm this look and work just like a halogen oven ....If looking for airfryer I recommended the Philip airfryer. Search for it on ebay for a cheap deal also around £89. I have a refurbished one for a few months now works perfectly, much prefer it to a normal oven.

BREVILLE, no way , terrible company to deal with, very poor after sales , cold for me .

Preheat oven to gas mark 7
Cut potatoes into chips.
Simmer in water for 3-4 minutes, drain.
Coat chips in oil of choice. Spread out on baking tray. Add salt and pepper, maybe some paprika.
Cook on the top shelf for 25-30 minutes. Give them a shake half way through.

Just saved you £90 and just as healthy!

Im voting it cold cuz I DONT LIKE CHIPZ!! My dog choked on one in 1996 and its wrong ...

Typical sample of a 'I'm voting cold because.....' post

(hot BTW )

anything has got to be better than the actifry..... i took the 3 year cover out on mine and i am glad i did as less than a year I am just about to go get my 3rd replacement :-(

I am into the 2nd year of my 3yr extended no quibble warranty with my first one - no issues at all, but I do clean well including the filters, something most people don't both doing.

I can see it breaking soon though, as I need a new one.

I don't simmer mine, just cut, coat and in the oven.

Paprika is a good shout, I grab random spices from the cupboard depending on what I fancy.

Thats a lot of time and effort to make chips though - run warm water into a clean basin or collander, peel a kilo of potatoes, wash, soak and drain starch, add far more oil than is needed i.e. more than 1 teaspoon, then pre-heat the oven which you may want to use for the fish or steak pie, but can't as the chips need to be on the top shelf, then wait another 30 minutes - so thats about an hours work for what is still "CHIPS" LOL. The actify can cook fresh/frozen/oven chips/frying chips etc etc while the oven cooks proper over foods

had a actifry for 3 years now,had to replace it once but its the best kitchen gadget out there,frozen chips in 10-15 mins with no oil needed... just the job...

How long does it take to cook chips?

My mum still uses the lard chip pan. she peels, and chips the potatoes then spends about 40 mins doing two lots to feed a family of 4. (two batchhes of chips). I don't even eat many chips.

Why is oil bad for us. There is a youtube vid, lard v oil. Now people are saying oil is bad for us too. Why is it?.

Is this cooker faster and doing chips then say 20mins

Voted cold as Halo Reach is cheaper and a lot more fun than this.

Could someone please post a picture of a spartan soldier with a chef's hat on and call it masterchef in honour of this fryer please?

I would but I'm on my phone at the moment.

ah a answer while i was rabbitting on. so 10-15 mins from frozen, so maybe quicker is peeled and cooked yourself.

will have a look on youtube

Real chips <_ LOL take a lot longer to get proper brown cooked and crispy, it also totally depends on how much food you add. Remember it cooks by superheating particles of oil in the air and swirling the chips to ensure even cooking, so a handfull of chips takes 15 minutes, but a kilo or bag of chips would take about 25 from pressing the on button.

My only gripe is that the timer is just that, a timer. It does not cut the power.

Aren't you glad to live in an age where people feel the need to share videos of themselves frying chips with the rest of the world?

I have an actifry and they don't cook that quick unless you like half cooked chips that is. 20-25 mins is the time over chips take cooked properly. Home made take 30 mins and wedges 40-45 mins.

Looks like they only make 1 model from the Breville website, so one of them is wrong with the power output description.
