These are excellent multi purpose devises. Extremely healthy and efficient way to cook. I bought mine from Very at £99 so this is a great deal.

Does it make nice chips?

What's the difference between these and the actifry? Which is better?

I've always been interested in these, but the price of them has never really shifted. Similar to ffa1, I've not idea how good the food is out of these things, can anyone offer any insight? Chips? Onion rings? Tempura stuff? All good?

These are terrible for making chips. the paddle that is responsible for moving the potatoes around so that it can actually cook them properly just destroys them.

This is used more than the oven at ours.. a lot quicker than the oven for frozen easy stuff, makes brilliant roasties, chips, jacket potatoes. never really cooked any liquidy food in it though we still stick to pans for that but when ours packs in will definitely be buying another.

i know a few who have these as i follow slimming world and they love them

I have this model. I don't use it for chips as the paddle can be quite destructive to them. I do use it all the time for potato wedges, and for cooking any time of meat that is awkward to turn (it comes with a grill tray for meat) like sausages and kebabs.

As someone who has a combined grill and oven (whereby, I can't grill anything whilst using the oven and vice versa) I use it a lot.

Amazing and make lovely food. We add no oil has usually the food you are cooking has enough oil in it.

Had one for a couple of weeks and does frozen chips much better than the oven. No problems with mashing them up so not sure what's happened there.

I've tried some fresh chips but they seem to still taste of potato after the recommend cooking time - any ideas anyone?

they will taste of potato as they are made from them...

Don't really eat chips, but are these any good for fried chicken?

Ignore the half-wits pretending they don't know what you mean when you say they still taste of potato.
Would recommend you rinse off and dry with paper towel before cooking.
Failing that, add 15-20% to the cooking time and increase as required, bit of trial and error.

All the best.

Completely agree , come out half mashed , half roasted . Taste fine but not great appearance or crispy ness

Frozen chips are better than fresh potato ones , I was given one , I occasionally use but wouldn't buy one .

Thanks (they did make me chuckle though, bless them) have rinsed and dried them plenty, and increased cooking until they were really well done, but still taste funny of raw potato inside.

Like is said though, the frozen ones were lovely.

Did put onion rings in as well, but the paddle mashed them to pieces! Guess I should have used the grill bit

Run them under cold water for a good few minutes to get rid of the starch in them. You'll see the water stay clear when it's enough.

Nice troll

Fry and health don't go together in my book

Excellent appliance, we use ours 4 or 5 times a week, used it to cook chips, wedges, sausages, chicken, burgers etc etc. I too have found that the paddle destroys chips so what we now do is cook chips without a paddle and give them a shake half way through, come out still in shape and very tasty !!.... cooks great sweet potato chips too. Not used it for any liquid meals such as currys and bolognaise etc as still use pans or slow cooker for that. Would definately recommend.

Airfryer is a much better purchase

The paddle is a pain to be honest and I don't bother using it. Best to check on your food every 5 mins and give it a stir with a wooden spoon. It cooks everything to perfection including sausages.

I had both and the Airfryer is basically as mini electric fan oven. It just encouraged me to eat junk as I would if I used an oven. The chips were very average and involved a lot of preparation (drying down on kitchen paper and shaking every few mins).

Maybe this i why the price has came down, because the paddle is a problem?

We've had the Airfryer for about 2 years, don't do any of this shaking every few minutes that you speak of, and neither do we do any drying.

As you pointed out, its like a fan oven, so this thing blows hot air, that is sufficient enough to dry things too!

Give them a shake once half way through is all you need, another tip is to start them off at 160 degrees, then when you shake them up, turn it up to 190/200

Don't blame the Airfryer for laziness and eating poorly, you can cook just about anything in it, and we find the chips are great, we use only Maris Piper for chips, or sometimes frozen if we've run out

Yes, I'd much prefer Amazon. They'll be cheaper as Currys won't let you leave the store without first selling you an extended warranty for £49.99.
