Mmmm... fried air!
"Chips with less than 80% fat" - I should hope so!!

Any idea how it compares to an acti-fry?
Quite fancied giving this a shot but seems to be very limited stock with none within 150 miles. Still a good deal for those who can get it.
Actifry is great, because you can see at a glance when the food is cooked through the transparent cover. There have been some Actifrys which have caught fire, but mine's been fine so far!

If you look around, you can get the Actifry for a similar amount.

The 1kg one was £99.99 on amazon the other day, back up to £118 now, you've got to just keep checking...
Ordered in the end cheers OP, hope its ok
Airfryer. Or as normal people call it, An Oven.
I have an Actifry and love it, worth every penny, not sure what these are like, But heat added for the price as know my friend was looking at these the other day for £150.
I was kinda tempted until I watched the video on the link. The chips they cooked with it look pretty much icky..
Dont be tempted n buy this. Absolute rip off. Returning mine to Amazon. It`s too small and it`s bulky esp for small/ med kitchen. Remember me when u buy n realise how bad of a prurchase it is. GUARANTEED. NB: Call it patronise or what ever you learned from the British Society or school.
I thought(read reviews on Reevoo) that the tefal Actifry took like 30-40mins to make chips?
Airfryer - because coating sliced potatoes in olive oil, placing them on a baking tray and chucking them in the oven is just so much damn effort.

Absolutely lovely results. Everything is very crispy, including frozen and fresh chips, nuggets, scampi, chicken and a whole host of different recipes in the enclosed recipe book. Very quick too.
save your money and get a normal fryer, providing you heat the fat to
the correct temperature, change oil on a regular basis, drain whatever
you have cooked on kitchen paper then frying the traditional way will
be no more unhealthy than using one of these crap new devices
Bought one of these from Amazon, the food was mediocre and itdidn't cook regular pieces of chicken well. I returned mine for a refund as part of the 28 day money back deal they were doing. The refund came promptly and with no issues so I can't fault that. Not sure if this Argos one has the 28 day trial, extremely hot if it does, otherwise, meh.

Was going to get one of these but reading people's comments I'm unsure now, I have a normal fryer and chnage the oil and drain of kitchen towel but this method has to be better for you, but don't want to go down this route if the food is just OK as my chips are awesome, well so the mrs says anyway.

I'm tempted by one, but the mixed reviews are a little off putting.
I have the Tefal and its never put a foot wrong, I love chips and it cooks them really nice with just a little bit of oil being used, I was going to get one of these but you still need the oil so I cant see if this is any better than the actify (which I would recommend). The video to demonstate this product is pants !!!
I think i'll stick to the chip pan

Looking at argos reviews there seems to be a fair few people saying that the actifry things was pants at chips and that's all i'd use mine for, guess i could take a punt and if it's cr*p just get a refund, was saving for a new TV as well (_;)
If you like chips, you could eat 1 bag of chips x 120 days at my local chippy. If you take into account buying of potatoes, electricity and cleaning you'd have to really like chips to buy this! Or if you live in Blackpool just buy one with your benefits and hey presto food for life!
My other half won't have a deep-fat fryer in the house - she says they stink and as someone who's delivered stuff to people's houses I'd have to agree (I can tell if you have one of those, a dog or a cat (especially a cat) when I'm 20ft from your door usually!!)

Thing is tho - we've never really missed it and I've NO idea what you'd cook in this really!? If you want chips which are low-fat, use Oven Chips and save £100!?

Been wanting this for a while, but refused to pay original asking price. Thanks!
Got it running with chips in it (yes I "did a HUKD" and ran out and bought one before they sold out), will let you know how it turns out in about 20 minutes
slice then par boil potatoes for 3 mins, season and bang in the oven for 25 mins on 230, save £100 on what will become an ornament.

Can't speak for everyone else here but having this in my dorm room (which also has a fridge and freezer) is a bit better then the alternative; one oven shared between 14 people. Also, laziness.
I can recommend the actifry, our first one blew up (known fault with early models) and we were offered a refund or a new one. We took the new one and I am pleased we did, it does quite a lot of other things such as sausages as well has chips and as someone has mentioned you can see the cooking progress. The stirrer also ensures the food cooks evenly. I believe the philips is not much more than a small fan oven.
Chips came out like something out of a chippy, impressive considering I was using oven chips. I'm going to be so fat.
I love kitchen gadgets, and brought this a few months ago. I have to say, it is the best kitchen appliance I have. I would recommend to anyone!
Bought one around 6months ago and dont regret it at all. Great applicance. So easy and so much healthier.
So has the Actifry setting alight issue definitely been resolved by Tefal?

Are there no earlier models still in circulation and is there any way to check by serial numbers?

Might buy both from Amazon (if they are accepting returns) to test and return the lesser one.

If this just circulates warm air then get a convection microwave.

There are only 3 makers of chips in this World.
1. Kentucky.
2. McDonalds.
3. Great Yarmouth Market chips. (with salt n' vinegar)
This are decent if you are a member at Costco i think it's cheaper recall seeing it INC Vat for £80
Overated gadget...eat chips sparingly and then cook in oven if required!

I was at Costco tonight and they were £118 inc VAT. They seem to have kept the price the same as it was in the last Passport.
My quick chip method:

- Get kettle boiling. Cut your potatos (or carrots, halved sprouts, radish, swedes, ...) & into hot frying pan, no oil yet
- Pour a little boiled water into pan just short of covering the vegs, max heat for quick job
- Wait 5 minutes or so till is HALF cooked (otherwise will be too soft & crumble), for quick results cut chips/veg finer (drain whatever water left)
- Add oil to fry, I use a sparyer a few times

Optional:
- After oil & gentle stirring I dust them generously with cornmeal powder (cheap from supermarkets- also good for giving body to sauces/currys/stews etc.) to give a crispy texture and spray more oil. I add red chilli flakes too. 10 minute healthy yummy chip & other fried veggies.
