Good price. But the build quality is terrible on these. Mine failed just after 12 months and so did my sisters.

How is converting hot oil into a tornado of free radicals supposed to be healthy?

I'll buy one when it hits 50 bones.

are these any good?

Wife really wants one, and i guess if we gonna give our little one chips - might as well be healthy.

Can you do stuff like nuggets and scampi in there?

Boom-ting

Is this an "old" model or something?

you can remove the paddle to do things like nuggets and scampi with no problems

Was £105 in mine... Breville one was 80 but I wanted black one so got it from Argos

How many portions of chips do these cook at one time ?

1 kg of chips. Enough for 4 adults. Free radicals cause premature ageing amongst other things and are caused by overheating / destabalising the oil. This is only caused when oil smokes which does NOT happen in an actifry.

Well yes, but you could put scampi in a tray in the oven with no oil

Great price for an Actifry, so gets some heat from me as a deal.

However, having bought an Actifry and lived with one for a year I'd have to say it's one of the biggest wastes of money I've ever made. As far as chips are concerned you are better off deep frying them if you like the flavour/texture or using oven chips if you want the convenience - IMO the Actifry gives you the flavour of oven chips with the inconvenience of real...... (and I doubt the fat content is actually much different to good oven chips either). The claims for portion size are exaggerated too. In my experience this can just about cook three (not especially large) adult portions in one go....

Beyond chips its use is very limited and virtually anything else can probably be done better and more cheaply in an oven or George Foreman grill. It's a faff to clean - several parts to disassemble/wipe and takes up a LOT of space in a dishwasher. It also takes up a LOT of space when not in use. It really is a literal waste of space....

I'd strongly recommend anyone thinking of getting an Actifry to borrow one and use it for a few days to see if it does anything for you that can't be done more easily and cheaply in other ways.

Anyway, whether you buy one or not is a lifestyle choice. HUKD is about deals and if you want to buy this useless pile of @%$* this is a great price and the deal deserves some heat.....

£99 for the bigger capacity one in Argos and then with £10 voucher back.

We use ours a lot we mainly do oven chips, burgers, sausgaes. We also do onion rings and occasionally hash brown both of them can break apart in it though. It cooks chips nicely far better than our oven

Are these things just for chips? Can anyone name some other useful things you can do with them? (stir fry veg perhaps)

Do you reckon mccains 5 per cent fat oven chips are the same principle... A bit of oil spread over a lot of potatoes?

Thanks, ordered and heat added.

Wife's been wanting one of these for ages, if we'll get enough use from it only time will tell.

This is v cheap apparently - james

In reply to beergoggles, yes you can do stir fry and even chicken in the fryer. It comes with a recipe book explaining what you can cook - we did stir fry tonight in ours

Does she mmmmm.

Have some heat seems like hot price but which is better this or the Phillips airfryer? Need to know which to get the wife for Christmas!

Had an actifry,now got a phillips air fryer,actufry was only used for chips,airfryer gets used for loads of different foods and the chips come out crispier than the actifry

This is a great buy,
I've had one for a year now and it's brilliant you can cook loads of stuff in it x

Can you do doughnuts??!

WTF is 'free radicals'
should I be scared of this like my dad was the microwave...

Never mind the healthy spoon of oil. Bang a bit of beef dripping in with your chips. Nom nom nom

Cold - fire lighters are about a quid aren't they?

If you fancy keeping your kitchen, house and life I'd avoid these at ALL costs.

The net is littered with information about these things being potentially lethal and from what I have read Tefal don't give a toss.

You certainly ain't gonna make decent Tempura in one of these.

Ooh - make great wedges - yes so does an oven!!

LOL - as far as I know dougnuts are DEEP FRIED.

A completely pointless, expensive and very likely dangerous, load of crap.

It's not even cheap. We have an Argos value deep fat fryer that cost about £10 that makes proper food.

For around £40 you can get a very decent deep fat fryer.

Definitely a case of "The Emperors New Clothes".

A quote from the most helpful review - "BTW, it takes 40 minutes to cook 1KG of chips - that is a LOT of chips. If you only do two portions of chips it takes just over 20 mins - and that is from start to finish, no pre-heating."

WTF??? A deep fat fryer takes about 5 minutes.

This item is a complete joke - LOL

Deep fryer - lovely.

That sort of thing is exactly why I've just had to lose 4 1/2 stone - because I can't just "have a few" when it comes to bad food. And deep fried chips do have significantly more calories.

So something like this (I have a Halo) means I can still have tasty chips, but at significantly lower calories.

One house-mate said he actually preferred the chips done in this to 'proper chips' because they didn't taste as 'heavy'.

I've also used mine as a halogen over for a variety of other things.
You can even further reduce the calories by using spray oil. They don't come out as 'chippy', but are still tasty potatoes - and in this case barely more calories than boiled potatoes!

You kinda miss the point of this product. It takes longer to cook your food because you're not submerging it into boiling fat, you're using a minimal amount of oil so yeah, duh it takes a little longer.

I also like how your little rant and useless comment shows that you don't have one of these devices, have no intention of getting one and are therefore one of the least qualified people in the world to advise others on it.
