I also bought mine with my HSBC Premier credit card and got an additional 2 year warranty for free...I know its not an option for everyone but check your card, extra free warranty isn't to be sniffed at

Gosh I'm tempted. What do you all cook? Can you do you own homemade battered onion rings in them? Are burgers good?!

WE only use our for frozen chips and the odd chicken nuggets....

Is this better than the Philips air fry?

I not used the Philips one or this one yet but I thought this one looked better built. The Philips one is on offer at the moment . Someone has posted the deal on here

ive had both i would say the philips is much better and the build quality hammers tefal.

good find op, heat added

I love my Actifry, I've made quite a few things other than chips in it. "fried" chicken comes out well.

Save your cupboard space and use your oven.....

No. It's pieces of chicken in breadcrumbs. The quality can vary - some are 100% chicken breast, cheaper ones might be shaped from cheaper cuts and have added water etc.

Ps: you know exactly what chicken nuggets are, now stop being a plank

Couldn't be without my actifry now. Don't have a Phillips to compare but understand that you need to agitate the basket a few times during cooking? This one rotates the food so you can walk away and leave it to get on with it. I use my actifry with the paddle for chips and roasties and without for all sorts inc. garlic bread, sausages, heating naan breads. Want the new 2in1 but it's a bit pricey for the extra convenience. If I didn't already own one, this would be a great deal for me.

I added a 5p bag to a £99.99 order in store before Christmas, and staff wouldn't allow me the £10 voucher as the 5p bag wasn't eligible for the promotion or some other bull..

​The bag doesnt count as a product sale, otherwise imagine their sales forecast would have would be substantially up since the change of law.

Doesn't state clear enough a bag can't be added to push it over the £100. I'd argue it if refused.

Does the timer shut the frying mechanism when the timer is up?

EDIT: Seems like it doesn't auto-stop the frying process when the timer runs out (i.e. need to manually shut the system off when the timer is up). Guess it's the Philips AirFryer for me then!

And using the 5p bag charge (that's meant to reduce plastic waste) to deliberately buy a bag you don't need in order to get a deal? Really?

Really? That's just ridiculous!

pretty much use this every day. cooked chips, prawns, chicken with mushroom sauce, curry, lovely chicken wings, lamb chops. fantastic product.

Is this not an air fryer? I thought it was then see you add a little oil, I have a Lidl air fryer which is ok but not amazing, is this a different concept? Thanks

Yeah, it's only the family version (that serves upto 6 portions) that automatically turns off. Not this one or the cheaper ones. Bitterly disappointed, as I liked this one.

I've never had them, but assumed they were reconstituted bits of chicken that could not be sold in any other way. Long live British cuisine!

I've had the actifry and Phillips air fryer. there are plus and minus points for both.
the actifry can hold more food and agitates it automatically during cooking. The quality of the food it cooks is great. however, it is fragile. in 2 years I replaced the lid twice and the paddle once. The Philips air fryer was on offer for £50 on black Friday so I took a punt on one.
build quality for the air fryer is much, much better. The basket can be cleaned in the dishwasher as well.
Yes you do have to manually agitate the food during cooking but it takes seconds and you need to check how the food is cooking anyway.
the air fryer is quieter, heats up quickly and cooks food really well.
we use ours for everything that might normally be fried
oven chips, fish fingers, battered prawns etc
we also cook jacket potatoes in it and they come out brilliantly
on balance I prefer the Phillips but at this price the actifry is a great buy

Was it the two stupid hook clips that hold the lid down ? Mine broke and I resorted to balancing books on top of my Actifry to keep the lid down before giving it away.

If I was to buy another air fryer I'd give the Philips a go this time.

​Your comment. Really?

Argue with the fact of the offer. As this is a deal site the majority who use it want the best option/deal possible even if it means "deliberately buying a bag" to get it.
Surely not everyone would want to walk around holding a box.

We're does Argos get that the product was £179. The model which was £179 was the 1.5kg machine nor the 1.2kg.
I've been checking these for about a month and Argos never had a 1.2kg for sale (new shape) only 1.5kg.

Looks to me all of a sudden a 1.2kg unit has turned up.
The 1.5kg is now £159 from £179.
