So no oil, hot air....
Does anyone else think this could be a fancy oven?

You have to add a small amount of oil to home made chips, I have a Philips machine version, I use Olive Oil

Yeah, I know the Philips one is add 1 teaspoon or something. But this doesn't mention any of that at all. So wanted to make sure it's not a 50quid oven.

its in effect a mini convection oven. my microwave / normal oven does the same except half way through you have to 'stir' the chips or whatever is being cooked.

adding oil helps for that 'fried' effect but its not necessary.

That's all this and the Philips one (which I own), a fast fan oven.

These types of fryers are great. I use mine ( different make )all the time and prefer the chips cooked by hot air. They work better than an oven due to the close proximity of the hot air, crimping the outside of the chips better. I love adding a spoon of groundnut oil as I find the taste improves the chips even more and seems to give them a great colour. Highly recommended people try hot air chips

P.s also cheaper to heat than switching on an oven, preheating it, if all you are putting in there are chips

Does anyone know what date these are in store

If its anything like the Philips its **** hot

What's the difference between one of these and a halogen oven? Genuine question as I already have a halogen oven gathering dust and not sure about committing to one of these

To confirm, 3 year warranty.

i too have a halogen (in the loft mines is ) just too big never been used who wants it ??

I bought the Phillips air fryer. If this is as good I might by this
In my opinion It's better than an oven. My kids can make their own chips without me worrying about them burning themselves or the house.
Thank op I'll go and have a look

that's because most people that shop at lidl can't afford £50 for a fryer :]

Yep, In the sixties I used to tie a couple of Kate and Sidney pies on to the head of my motorbike with a bungee strap and ride home from the shops, bing. Ready to scoff.

which are the best variety of potatoes in the Phillps air fryer for chips ?

The halogen ovens use a halogen lamp to heat the food in the oven as well as using hot circulating air. So food tends to cook faster on top (where it "sees" the halogen) than underneath it and means that you tend to need to turn food over like you would under a grill.

The air fryers don't have the direct heat source and rely on circulating hot air at a higher speed. The higher speed helps to spread the oil droplets around the oven too. The "indirect" heating means that food cooks more evenly and you need to turn food less (if at all).

You can cook chips in a halogen oven but it's a bit of a faff - google it to see a lot of demonstrations - mostly from sellers of halogen ovens.

Capacity 2.3L. How much is that in chips? a handful or enough to feed 4 people.
Don't want to buy it and its too small

made me chuckle!

Standard Philips air fryer is 2.2L and the XL is 3L.
So i would imagine it would me more of a 2-3 person rather than 'family' fryer.

I have the smaller Philips Air Fryer and it's OK.

I've never had any luck making crisp chips from scratch (they always come out soggy), but it works really well for:

- Frozen oven chips (cooks them in half the time vs oven or grill, and really even cooking)
- Baked potato (make sure you cook in the microwave first, and then crisp up the skin in the Air Fryer)
- Bacon (12 minutes for perfect crispy bacon)

There's a mad (in a funny way) Indian guy who shows some brilliant Air Fryer recipes on YouTube.

I have the Philips one and it looks like identical to this Lidl one apart from a few cosmetics. All the controls are the same and in the same place. Cooks oven chips in 2/3rds of the time of a fan oven without having to be preheated. Does them lovely too, very crisp on the outside. I also have a halogen oven which is just a big fan blowing heat round but that doesn't fry stuff anywhere near as good or quick as the airfryer.

I never add any oil unless using regular home made chips from potatoes and that's just a faff so just buy frozen ones. Good for scampi and party food like spring rolls or samosas too.

Good for when you get in hammered from the pub too. Chips in 15 mins and you don't burn the house down when you fall asleep as it's on a timer.

I have the andrew james halogen with the air fryer adapter

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Andrew-James-Halogen-Attachment-Suitable/dp/B00GLRVZZK/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1434035947&sr=8-1-fkmr0&keywords=fryer+rack+andrew+james

it works, but this is specifically designed as an air fryer.

When I bought my halogen, air fryers were hundreds of pounds, so this has to be a good deal, especially with the 3 years warranty.

probably 3 or 5 year warranty as well.


Just try claiming on their warranty...!!!
Not just a case of taking it back to the shop and saying hey mate this doesn't work can I have a new one.!!!
OH NO its we will take your details and our service agent will be in touch about repairing your item.
Then after 6 months and dozens of phone calls they will offer you a refund " pro data " because they include depreciation.
So after 3 years you might be offered £9.99 if your lucky " I KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE "
That's why I never buy from them anymore..!!!

Is that how Lidl deals with warranty issues now? I haven't had anything electronic from there for years but years ago I did return something after considerable time and got a full refund without too much hassle.

Anyone else comment on how Lidl are with returns / warranty based issues?

Never a problem here. Returned a product with a bit missing, instant refund....

Just bought one and will road test it tomorrow, hope it's good!

bought one earlier and made some chips in them, turned out amazing, very crispy and cooked in a third of the oven time.. will be trying some sweet potato fries in them tomorrow

I reviewed a Russell Hobbs one for Amazon Vine and it was shocking. Even the instructions referred to it as a specialised fan oven and that was supposed to be worth £150.
