is this better than the phillips?

Original Poster

its cheaper and with a bigger warranty, i've nt tried or tested as its not out till the 10th but when i get will review for you

Do these actually work ?

The actifry is excellent. Not tried the others as got ours for a really good deal and use it all of the time..

This is like the Tefal version, had that sold it and bought the Philips Actifry, its much better!

Not worth the risk until it's reviewed.

Much the same as the CRF3T VISICOOK which i have and its great you can cook all sorts in it even a whole chicken.

My Actifry is used all the time and I have no complaints.

Philips fryer for 89.99 at Argos might be a better bet!

You can do way more in the Aldi one though, they are very different machines

Air fryer can do more than what the booklet says, I love mine. You can even use the 1 cal spray rather than oil for slimming world chips. I boil potatoes and use 1 cal spray to produce roastie like potatoes the healthy way. I'd def recommend for slimming world users.

Is it worth getting one of these if you already have a halogen oven?

Hot deal - even though my AGA blows it away.

id rather pay a bit extra for a known brand with eleccies

This isn't healthier. (sorry as I go off topic)
If you want to lose weight, lower cholesterol, live longer: Low fat is not the solution, you need low Carb's.
The problem with your chips is more the potato than the oil.
Get a food processor instead.
Use it to slice up veg into healthy raw salad. (Carrot, Onion, Cabbage, Peppers, Raddish etc) Combine with an oily protein portion (skin-on salmon, tin of sardines, a delicious steak). Plenty of lovely dressing (olive oil, white wine vinegar, dijon mustard). Avoid salt - "season" with lemon juice or fresh chilli or fresh herbs. (or all 3)
Could make enough veg for 3 days at a time, store in airtight containers in fridge.
Try this salad for lunch every day for one week...weight loss, increased energy, less hunger.
Make sure you don't use your processor for blending - makes it easy for your body to digest and extract the sugars. Exception to this rule is blended soups with protein in them. Apparently they are absorbed slower.
Fruit is healthy - but a fruit smoothy is not.

8kg would be commercial size, Aldi error!

Is it worth getting one of these if you already have a halogen oven?

it will cost you higher electricity bill .

To be honest I'd have a halogen oven over this
Granted you use a spooful of oil . But the fat already on/in the meat has nowhere to drain to during cooking
A George Foreman has a sloping surface so the oil runs off sideways
A halogen oven drains the oil vertically as the food is suspended on .
I've been using my one ( 1000 watt affair) for about 3 months now. I on't use the main oven at all
The halogen oven's fantastic , meat comes out succulent and not at all dry ( presumably because of the whirring fan )
I may be wrong about this airfryer but I I think technically a halogen oven is better than a G'Foreman which in turn would be better than this Airfryer

My 2 cents anyway

this is a halogen oven but an added turner for the chips

I sold our Actifry as it worked out cheaper to cook chips with a hairdryer.

indee! but drainage of the excess "internal" fat off other "foods" is what I'm questioning

you can drain food it comes with a rack , i bought one today

I don't think that is really the purpose of these low fat fryers. You would no more put a fatty steak in one of these than you would in an Actifry or the Philips Airfryer. They are more for cooking low fat items with a minimum of added grease in order to crispen the outside and give you that fried taste without the calories.

I used to put Tesco low fat Cumberland sausages in the Actifry I had with no added oil and it cooked those a treat with no pool of grease at the bottom. Cooking those in the halogen I have now works too, but some other varieties (e.g. Skinny Lizzie) are inclined to split and leak, which never happened in the Actifry.

These fryers come with a booklet telling you what works and what doesn't, but basically people buy them to do chips in.

These things seam a really expesive way to cook chips. I know you need less oil, but you need more dough

save yourself £80 and buy some oven chips

So something cooked in less fat/oil isn't healthier then something cooked in more?
Completely ignoring what's being cooked, your professional opinion less oil/fat isn't any better for you then the same things cooked in more?

The OP stated its a healthier fryer, not it will help you lose a lot of weight, drastically improve your life or make you live to 100. Merely its a healthier fryer ie its healthier then a deep fat fryer or shallow frying.

Its posts like this which remind me everyone on the internet is a pornstar, super hacker, artist, photographer, qualified in every possible subject (and a few made up ones) to the highest level as well as anything else the situation may require.
I know I sound a bit cynical, but in my experience if a post starts or ends with its true because I'm a x its generally not the case.

Its an oven, you can cook anything you can in a standard oven , but using less electric and its quicker too

This isn't healthier than cooking the same amount of potato using more oil?

Cool story bro.

Use our Actifry several times per week. Great for more than just chips. Can cook curries, chilli, roasted veggies and loads more. If you use the measure that comes with it then homemade chips are lower in fat than most oven chips.

I Wish I had read this b4 buying one, I have an halogen oven and love it. oh well to go and try chips

Why isn't a smoothie healthy? Just ground up fruit innit?

These are **** to be honest ... the chips don't turn out well & it crushes onion rings etc ...

Because grinding it up turns it from fruit into just another sugary drink. Learn about it here.

Hi all, I bought one of these yesterday and am just wondering can you cook alsorts in it, the receptive book isn't very good with it. Any tips and suggestions would be appreciated could I cook a casserole for example?

Also on the topic of chips, if I was using potatoes would I need to par boil them first or just chuck them in and throw in the spoon of oil.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks. I notice you say above to search for "halogen oven recipes on google" so is this the same as a Halogen Oven or do the samethings cook in it.

Excuse my ignorance :-)
