Hope it helps someone

I have one of these and they are fantastic, especially at this price.

great for deep fried air

So is this cheap? On the gadget show I watched awhile back in January (It was reviewed the best earning a 4G rating), the best price was mentioned at £89.

Here's some Amazon reviews: amazon.co.uk/Phi…ack

Deep fried air... It's all a gimmick it's just a cooker

Really nice chips from these. Had mine for a few months and really taste so much nicer than oven chips.

Which one is best Tefal or Philips?

I have the actifry and I can highly recommend it, cooks things rapid with little oil, really clean.

We have this one and dont like chips from it. Its so dry
I would prefer active fry

Beyond me why people rate this.... I've had chips cooked in it and they're gross, they look terrible, taste bland, and don't have the right texture. Mind you I hate oven chips as well.
I only like chips that are deep fried.

These make great tasty chips. I wouldn't say this is half price though as you can normally find them for around £100 anyway.

this makes great chips. you just need to par boil the chips and put a tablespoon of oil on them and they come out great

whats the point if you have a fan oven ...

I find the best "chips" to do in this one are McCain French fries, or southern fries, if that helps - The thicker chips, or supermarkets own brand fries are much poorer in this.
I can honestly say this is the best kitchen 'gadget' I've ever bought, did a beautiful medium steak in it last night, have cooked joints of meat in it too all excellent!!

A very good unit, enjoy using it and makes perfect chips, chicken breast pieces etc... Note: UK units do NOT come with the separator piece.

Also, if you're interested in the baking tray for this (for omelettes/frittatas), can be ordered direct from Philips for £17.99 + £3.99 delivery instead of £36 on eBay.

if you dont like chips cooked in this, you're doing it wrong. its really not that difficult!

It depends on your circumstances - If you are only cooking for one these are much cheaper to turn on for 10 mins to do sausages and chips, as opposed to a fan oven for 20 mins as it takes longer and you are paying to heat up much more "air" HTH

One reviewer on Amazon with bulk of those with reviews favour the product - "The product works ok but I can't help thinking I have wasted my money. It's not a fryer it cooks through hot air so I could get the same result from my oven. You don't get that deep fried taste and texture. Yes it's healthier than a normal fryer but this is not a fryer! I wish I had saved my money and just used my oven instead."

Must stop spending, but this does look good (_;)

And that reviewer is right....... I think most people don't want to admit they've been ripped off £90 for what is basically a mini oven.

Does it cook faster/quicker than an oven tho?

This doesn't have a paddle unlike the tefal one. The tefal one ensures all food cooks evenly and can see it cook through the window

yes/aye

This is the best gadget I have ever had. Tempted to buy another one as spare at this price.
Edited by: "DrMomo" 22nd May 2013

I have one and use it at least 3/4 times a week. Cooks lot quicker than oven, its easier to clean than oven. I purchased for £99 and got 2 years warranty with John Lewis. Would definitely recommend

Sergio Garcia could get one of these as a present for Tiger Woods, I'm sure he'd love healthy fried chicken.

This is the best gadget I have ever bought, and yes I have an oven but the results in this compared to oven cooking food are much better. The price varies wildly from £179 some weeks to £99 others, £89 is about as good as it gets.

Homemade chips made with a teaspoon of oil are lovely (don't forget to soak first) but oven chips in this are even better (no oil needed) - crispy yet fluffly and light inside. There's plenty of other things that can be cooked in it too, I use mine for parbaked petit pains in the morning, takes 5-6 mins, no preheat required.

I bought from John Lewis thinking that the 2 year warranty was a John lewis thing but didn't realise ALL airfryers come with the two year warranty.


seems a good price based on rrp but dont see the point of them tbh

Not sure on these...I've seen the ones where you put oil in the middle spoon thing so you get a half baked half fried flavour, but how would you achieve this using an oven?

Oh....


People actually buy this?!

I will just stick with my full fat oil fryer. You can never replace the real taste of chips cooked in oil.

The best way to cook chips is to not be LAZY and peel some potatoes chop them up and put them in the deep fat fryer,it doesn't take long.I don't understand why people buy oven chips they taste gross and there is no way this contraption is going to have the same taste as a deep fryer .

You are so so right.

Bought one of these about a month ago and I think they're fantastic. Really good for anyone doing Slimming World as you can do your SW style chips/wedges in half the time it takes in the oven!!

This would seem like a much better deal if you wait 3 weeks and choose amazon as the seller for £79.99:

I was going to buy one of those but having read the reviews it seems it has a paddle which does a good job of crushing the food and often sticks - the Phillips reviews overall were much better, 4.5 out of 5 on Amazon with over 430 reviews. The Breville also has a much bigger footprint so takes up more space in the kitchen. It's also based on Halogen heating rather than convection heating like the Phillips so will have different cooking results. As a Phillips Airfryer owner I would definitely spend the extra tenner and get the Phillips Airfryer over the Breville Halo.
