Good price, these seem to very rarely go beneath £100.
Best price I've seen for one of these, heat given
How many packets of lard can you get into these?
Cheapest I have seen, can't bring myself to stump up this sort of money for something that will sit in the cupboard though. Heat added (_;)
Can you do a deep fried Mars bar in these?

No, not battered. But pretty much any dry food can be cooked. I use mine for cooking chicken breast cubes which have been marinated, or chicken cubes in bread crumbs (lightly oil the outside) and it cooks it absolutely wonderfully, juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside. I've also cooked somosas, chicken legs, sausages and oh chips too
We've had one for a few years now (Costco do them for about £100) - use it all the time - woud say the best, and most used, kitchen gadget we have (and I have a large kitchen cupboard of long forgotten unused kitchen gadgets!) I would describe how it works as like a hair dryer - blows hot air vapourising the oil (and we use half the oil they recommend - only needs a drizzle!), a bit like the hot-air blower popcorn makers. There is a stirrer (shaped like a serpent's tale) that stirs the chips, turning them over to evenly 'fry'. It's the stirring that causes problems with other frozen food, as pulls breadcrumbs off the food, or can mash it up. We came up with a prawn pork toast recipe by taking the stirrer out! Cooks sausage great, and we had a recipe book with ours - there is a chicken & pineapple recipe in there that is to die for, and so easy to make and leave to cook. Curries and stews work very well - and we tend to do roast potatoes (especially small potato cubes with garlic & rosemary) which cook perfectly. Frozen chips work brilliantly (they tend to be coated in oil before being frozen), real chips taking a bit longer (I guess down to water content?!?) Done some home-made potato wedges this evening - Maris Piper potatoes, skin on, in olive oil / mustard powder / chili flakes mix - crispy and crunchy - perfect! And best of all - no stinking the house out with deep fat frying - hardly any smell off it - BIG plus! Appreciate a big outlay cost - compared to dirt cheap deep fat fryers - but lack of smell, no waste oil & really easy to clean (just wash up!), make it worth the price. Every friend who has been round for a meal and seen it in use (and eaten food from it) have gone out a bought one!

The basic mechanics of the chip spinner are very simple, it is like a frying pan with a hole in the centre and that centre hole is slightly raised. In that centre hole stands a powered rotating tower with a sloped side which extends to the outer edge of the pan. The sloped edge, whilst rotating, pushes and turns the contents around the pan, (which is why I call it a chip spinner, not fryer), and the heat for cooking is generated by blown hot air into the pan, so you do not have, or need, enough oil to fry things in the conventional sense, threfore it would not be suitable for frying things in 'wet' batter. There is a silicone seal under the tower that prevents leakage through the hole, providing that the contents are not too liquid, (excessive oil, and water, would probably be too liquid), so things like thickish sauces could be cooked and stirred automatically in the pan.

There are many recipies on the web, so a search using - actifry recipies - should turn up some ideas, and give you a better idea of what you can cook in it.

I mainly use mine for cooking frozen chips, which take about 15 minutes for 350 grammes of chips, and even the cheaper frozen chips usually come out fine. There is no need to use any oil with frozen chips, so you save on oil costs, and if you choose frozen chips with a low fat content, you should be able to enjoy chips several times a week without increasing cholesterol. I bought my chip spinner about 6 months ago, and I recently had my annual health check, my cholesterol level was well inside the safe level, and was exactly the same as 12 months ago, so my increased chip eating does not seem to be causing any health problems for me.


It is hard to find the running costs of these on the internet, but the heating element is about 1400 watts, and it is controlled by a thermostat. The element seems to be on for about half the cooking time, so my 15 minute chips only cost about 2.5 pence in electricity to cook.

Ooh had this bought as a xmas prezzie this year. Must say it's absolutely fantastic and without the horrible fat and splashing everywhere the food tastes incredible. HEAT
How long does it take to cook chips? I heard it can take about 45 mins but that seems wrong!
Was it just the white model or was there the black one for the same price too?

12-15 minutes roughly, i just put some olive/sunflower oil in and they come out nice and tasty.. So it cooks them fairly fast.
Love mine, I do find them noisey though!!
I have one and great for frozen oven chips and even better for sausages and best of all mine has not caught on fire...... Ever !
Same deal at Tefal at Lowry Outlet in Manchester

nice (_;)
I can confirm that Swindon has the same deal.

The white one is £98 and the black is £114 - bolth prices before the 15% discount.

They've also got a 3 for 2 deal on the quick cup filters @ £6.99 each (again before 15% discount). Cheaptest I've seen elsewhere is £5.
no sure about these, some people say about 40-45 mins for chips, others say about 15 mins...

someone somewhere does know lol

Yes, at least two people on here know, and they have taken the time to explain on here how long chips take to cook, so either you have not taken the time to read their comments, or you don't believe what they have written, and therefore I see no point in repeating the cooking times.
If you want enough chips for 2 adults and 2 kids, then 750g does the trick in our house - fresh, cut from potatoes, but they need to be washed thoroughly to get the starch out them, and then dried as best as possible or they will not go crispy. The actifrying time is around 35 minutes for these. If you fill it with the max 1kg of fresh cut chips then it will definitely take around 40-45 minutes. But they do taste great! Unlike the sausages which we found were absolutely rank rotten - back to the grill for us.

It can depend on the sausages themselves, some come out great, (usually if not a high fat content), whilst others come out awful. I have also gone back to grilling now because of the uncertainty.
I think that we have used it for 3 out of 7 meals so far, sausages did well in it with some potato wedges at the same time as the excess fat from the sausages made the wedges very crisp. We are still experimenting.
Cheap as chips
