Why would you want to fry air?

air fryer wins on looks and actifry wins because everyone has one, but the breville halo wins because it does the same as the other two and uses less electricity too.

How does the food taste?

Where will I find mine? Never bought one or seen one so delighted to know I own one. (_;)

What are the chips like with this? Are they better than homemade oven ones made with small amount of oil please?

looks a cooking hot deal.....sorry:p

Air Fryers are more reliable though, we had the halo and it failed after 6 months. (we don't have the phillips).
I think it is because they use an element rather than an halogen lamp.

Ive just bought one and now thinking should I return for a breville?..someone help please!

I have an air frier. The only disappointment so far has been cooking jacket potato's, The quality of chips are far better than the actifry we had, and a lot less greasy! I would say though, if your chips say cook for 20mins, check them out after 15mins in the air frier, it's very quick to get to the crisp! I might have to give jackets another go but cooking in double the time, 45mins was nowhere near enough, raw in the middle despite the instruction manual saying 45mins would do it.

never ever buy breville. Ever.

2lb of lard an a large saucepan yummy ... chips like nanna use to make

and about £65 cheaper

Our airfryer has almost made our oven redundant since we got it 6 months ago following a friend's recommendation. This price is great. My advice? Buy, Buy, Buy!!!

I have one of these. Basically you can do the same in the oven if u can't afford one! I only use it to make chips and it takes ages for them to cook.

5 minutes max for chips (fries).. most things cook in half the time in the airfryer. never would use a fatty fryer again.

And about £65 more lard added to your body over not very long...

How many would you say the portion of chips would serve - reviews saying 2?

Hotter than hot air.

In your opinion.
Edited by: "MRGRINGO" 2nd Dec 2014

I had the actifry previously and sold it after a week as the chips were just not the same as fried chips or even oven chips for that matter. I'm not sating its a bad product but don't expect deep fat fryer quality chips fr it as the chips produced from it are on the opposite end of the taste spectrum.

For the price this is very good.
But i wanted more than just a small oven. Plus i didnt want to have to faff about with temp settings and i wanted one that can turn the food.
Bought a Halo because it can turn the food over, but you can remove the paddle and put in a grill thing that allows you to put things like meat in etc or use the whole empty bowl and put potatoes in etc etc. We even whacked some chestnuts in ours last night. 18 mins later and they were wonderful. Kids fish fingers or nuggets on the grill. Chicken pieces (such as thigh fillets) put in the bowl with the paddle in and tiniest amount of oil (half a teaspoon) sprinkle on chinese 5 spice and 30 mins getting slowly turned over in the juice. Really nice. Lots of things to do with them but only saying that i really like the philips but i just found the Halo offers more.

But the paddle really is awful and mashes most things up?

Air fryer you can fry in 0 fat? why would you not want to control the temperature, you can cook more things better if you can control the temperature. EG some things burn on the outside before the inside cooks through.

I can't agree that the brevill is a better option. I though the halo was pants compared to an air fryer.

Not really sure. I noticed that too but still bought it. I think its because the philips overall looks better on the worktop. The actifry already has a strong following but the reviews were that its badly made. I couldnt really see a negative as to why the Halo would come last. Also i like the fact that its only 1kw opposed to roughly 1.5kw that the others use.
I think what is daft about the philips is that you have to start coating the chips somehow in oil before you put it in the unit. Also you have to stop it and shake it halfway through to stop the food sticking to the mesh. Then you have to preheat it for 5 mins as per instructions, adjust the temp for the food etc etc.

ha... well as for the paddle mashing food up i think thats slightly daft unless you have used it on both actifry and halo. The paddle turns so slowly that really for things like chips its not a problem. Put fish fingers in and it will break them up. But that why the paddle can be removed.
I havent personally tried the philips just spent ages pouring over the details and watching on a couple of youtubes how they were used. I think theyre all good in some respect....just buy what you think suits your needs best.

PS i paid an extra £15 at currys for an extended warranty for 3 years just incase.

I agree. If anyone says that the chips are anything like a chip pan method they are talking pants. They do taste good however and far better than frozen chips from the shop.
Im really trying to use ours for a bit of a change from the usual. Tried roast veg with a bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar and they were lovely

bought in-store

It mashes chips up and wedges. It has an arm on a spring that forces itself over a small hump at 12 and 6 o'clock (I have owned one)
It then drops on the food on occasion and starts mashing it up. Then it causes it to stall also!
I am not the only person who had the same problem loads of people had, in the end we had to use it without the arm, but then its just a glorified halogen oven.
In the end the fan broke on ours which blew the lamp.

I would recommend the halo if it was better but the issues and the time it failed in I can't.

Like you say buy what suits but also take into account reliability reports I would say.

Nooooooooo.........you're doing it all wrong.

Whack them in the microwave for 10 mins, then in the airfryer (max temp) for 10 mins to crispen them up good. You're welcome

Yep. I also scoop the innards out, add butter/pepper/crispy bacon/cheese, mix it together, re-add and cook for another 5-10.

I'm not sure if the AirFryer works the same, but I've also used my Halo to make 'stir fry' if I can't be bothered to deal with oil splashing everywhere - I just cook chicken nuggets, take them out, add some oil with chopped garlic/ginger for a minute and then put in general tso sauce... then re add the chicken once it's thickened

As others have mentioned the Halo uses a halogen bulb, which makes it very like a Halogen oven, no?

Oh, you want another tip?.......

My Recipe 294: The Quick Cheese Toastie.

Airfryer on max.
Lay cheese on one slice of bread. Microwave it for 40 seconds.
Top with 2nd slice.
Airfry for 3-4 mins.
Dab it in tommy K.
Nom nom nom.

Thanks OP. Heat added. Ordered one. Hope it's more reliable than my ActiFry, which went "BANG" a while ago,

I think it's brilliant, just regret not buying it earlier.

Don't buy this if you want chips to come out like they do at the chippies or fried at home, it won't match the taste, but it's not far from it. I would rather have chips which had slightly less flavour than consume 50 times the amount of oil this needs, just a teaspoon for a decent amount of chips to fill 2-3 people.

For those that are health conscious but yet have a guilty pleasure, this works a treat.

Btw, fish fingers come out better than fried with this.

Genuine question; if ive got a convection oven, is there any point in picking one of these up?

I bought one of these for my mother last year for Christmas; she's used it nearly every day for jacket potatoes, fish, chips etc. She absolutely swears by it. I've tried the Tefal as well and I feel this is much better.

yes but the Halo also has a fan to blow the heat round. it still heats the same and evenly.
