It's good for all of those things - no oil needed. Chips come out crispy and fluffy in the middle.
I think I'll bite then, tired of having to wait ages to eat oil soggy chips

​I have this and it's one of my favourite gadget. Everything cooks quick and prefect and healthy.

Like others have said it cooks all of those things perfectly. I paid £50 in January.
Haven't seen the white version this cheap before. Ordered, thanks.

We can smell the fries but it's more like oven fries smell than chip pan smell

It doesn't leave a greasy smell in the kitchen like a chip pan does. You can smell things cooking from the airfryer but it's no different from cooking anything else in an oven. It's a much cleaner way of frying.
how easy is it to clean?

Very easy. The basket and bottom tray are removable and can be placed in dishwasher or hand washed.

I clean mine every time too and we only use it for chips,never tried anything else in it.

I'm really funny about cooking smells so other people probably don't notice these things but I do.

I hope you're not inferring I don't clean mine X)

No, not at all! I've just never noticed any bad smells coming from the airfryer. Not like with a chip pan anyway.
In my top five together with LED lights, touch lamps and dehumidifiers. however, they can be a pain to clean.
Are these noisy? Can you hear them through the door?
Waiting for these to drop in the Black Friday shenanigans, but good price for now
same price in amazon, sold out at tesco

Are you joking? or is that a serious question
You should add a bit of oil as that keeps food from drying out.
It does smaller portions quicker.
I use it for
quickly heating up doritos
Homemade potatoe and sweet potatoe chips (I do coat them in a little oil).
Oven hash browns. Come out quicker and crispier than a normal oven.
Cheese on toast. only big enough to do one slice at a time though.

Serious question, just watched a YouTube video about these and it sounds like a hoover

To be honest this is a reason we did not have a kitchen living room conversion
Half the time you cant hear the tv over the kettle/ dishwasher/ washing machine / tumble dryer/ food mixer etc.

The answer is if the door is shut you most probably wont hear it or it will be very low.
I would say it was quieter than most hair dryers as the noise is enclosed more in the unit.

It is quite loud but I doubt it would be loud enough to bother anyone through a closed door.
not sure how this compares but it's £10 cheaper

You don't need oil if you are using store bought frozen chips as they were already pre-cooked in oil.You only need oil when using fresh home cut potatoes. I do my chips on 160 and end result is always fluffy .

I've cooked homemade chips in the airfryer. You need to soak the potatoes for a while first and coat them in oil but the end result is fine.

Sorry I meant my own chips.
Although I do find boiling them for a short time gets rid of the starch, and then rolling in a little oil gives a softer but crunchier chip.

I do not recommend for burgers/food that dip oil as the oil blows off the item and hits the element and gets very smokey.

I usually cut a sweet potato into wedges, toss the wedges in some olive oil, then toss them with some paprika and herbs then air fry. Lovely
will try that

How thick is your door?
How good is your hearing?
