These things are pretty much for cooking chips aren't they? I know they …These things are pretty much for cooking chips aren't they? I know they say you can do all manner of things but isn't that what ovens and hobs are for? How much crap do we need cluttering up the kitchen?



We literally don't go a day without using our Halo, they are used for much more than chips (although it's one of the main things). We use ours for roast potatoes, curry's, fish...etc. Have a look around on the internet, there's 100s of Halo recipes.

Thanks for the post, @goonertillidie. My mother was inquiring about mine recently, so I'm going to pick her one up for Christmas (she doesn't need anymore irons, apparently).

I agree! While we are at it, lets do away with toasters,kettles.... in fact throw away your cutlery too, your fingers and teeth do the job just as well. It's a kitchen revolution!

Think you probably mean a handful of chips not a basket, these things would never hold a basketful, they also don't fry the chips, they are an oven in all but name, save your money and stick your chips in ya proper oven less mess and fuss
Bought one of these last time Amazon had them on offer even cheaper than this. On the whole I think it is a very good bit of kit, definitely more efficient than using a standard oven for small portions because the heating is instant. Most stuff cooks to perfection with a lovely crisp finish with little to no oil. For someone only feeding themselves (or maybe a couple) this is ideal - especially if you're a lazy git like me and often just want to bang in a bit of frozen fish with a few oven chips, it's done in 20-25 mins.

Couple of reservations - it is a bulky unit and takes up a fair bit of space, it needs a lot of clearance for the top to open. The design is a bit overly futuristic to my eye and I can understand why some wouldn't want it in a more 'tasteful' kitchen. Lastly, most of it is easy to clean as it disassembles easily - apart from the fan grill inside the top of the lid. This picks up fat fairly quickly and is a pig to clean as you are advised not to use any liquid detergents on it. Spent a good 30 mins last night with some steel wool cleaning just that one part.

Overall a brilliant buy for a lazy singleton with modest requirements.

a real true lazy git would have thrown it away not spent 30 mins cleaning it
Buzz Lightyear?
think this is cheapest around...
I have this model and it is great. Decent capacity and super easy to clean. Im not sure if Tefal food actually tastes better but I couldnt be happier with this. Chips come out yummy, even McCaine home fries.

Not an oven or a frier. The chips are far superior to oven chips, though to invest in one you need to be really keen on chips

Chips are fine in about 15 minutes depending on how you like them.

Since buying one of these I hardly use my oven. It's much more economical. I use it to part cook meat which I then slow cook. Also useful for cooking breakfast e.g. bacon, sausages etc. Also, great for pizza, fish, pies (although you have to cover the top with foil to prevent burning). Think of it as a small oven so it will cook most things perfectly.
I've recently bought the Philips air fryer for £60. I've not used it yet so I could return and get this. Would anyone recommend this product over the Philips air fryer I think hd92?
