Thanks for the comment despite it verging on rudeness. We had a Tefal Actifry which cost £160. As it was only used for chips and the odd pizza we swapped it with my daughter for the bigger version of this one instead. I was commenting on the product posted and trying to be helpful to those who are interested in purchasing it. I was not in any way asking for your opinion. For those interested it makes great chips in 7/8 minutes.

We have the larger one of this which is only £10 more. Chips, fish, etc nice and crispy on the outside but soft inside. Not as good with things which you cannot turn over, for example, pizza and quiche.

Lol not if you live alone
they say these are healthy but it's not true as they still require you to use oil...
I rarely turn on the oven now I have one of these, absolutely superb kitchen tech.

Also it reheats pizza amazingly, out in any leftover pizza it cooks it so crisply and brings the flavours to life again.
Is there a fat reservoir for this? I'd rather cook my chips with oil rather than air.

Kindest regards
These are brilliant!
Basically if you can oven bake what ever you are cooking, you can do it in the air fryer too (provided it fits).
Great for cooking for just one meal.
I hardly ever preheat the air fryer and cooks in nearly half the time.
Great for Jacket Potatoes, Pies!
Silly question but can you actually fry things in this? Or will it just come out kinda grilled? Thanks.

These type need no oil, if you put oil in it simply runs through the holes in the basket...

I have tried all sorts in mine, steak , chicken spring rolls I’ve even done sausage rolls, can’t complain, clean and tasty food. I heated a sandwich wrapped up in foil to melt cheese, a very versatile piece of kit!

I thought that until I was at a friends for a meal and she made chips and I swore they were fried until she showed me, I haven’t owned a deep fat fryer for years, chips are pants from the oven, give this a go, you won’t be disappointed
When people do chips in these do you actually do it from scratch (raw spuds) or are people using pre-made oven chips (which have a coating of oil on already).

Sorry if it sounds a daft question

If it is raw spuds, do you have to spray any kind of oil on them (like the low cal sprays)?

Why do they all include an oil spoon then?
Genuine question.
How do the chips compare to deep fat frier & Lard?
Mrs hasn't done chips in months (stupid diet, trying to keep me alive)

Mine didn’t ?? Maybe the actifry type do, I don’t know.
This is a great deal. Argos are also selling the 800g Tefal Air Fryer for £54.99 argos.co.uk/pro…FYg for people who may want something thats got a good name on it.
Can this be used to cook battered chicken nuggets, breaded chicken steak burger pieces?
So the service to check if they have any in stock at my local is broken, great!

Have been thinking about buying an air fryer for ages and then forgetting about it, and then remember when they pop up again. Some reviews are saying you still have to turn the chips, i thought these things were like put the chips in and just wait kinda thing?

I know you was not asking my opinion, but i decided to comment on your opinion on a open forum that you need to buy a better version and it will cook the stuff you cannot cook in this perfectly, what's wrong with that ? just being helpful June!

I had a mid range Air fryer a few years back not really convinced it would be any better than my halogen oven. It was however my favourite kitchen gadget for all things 'fried'. I barely used the oven at all after that. Food was crisp on the outside and moist and succulent on the inside. Battered fish, chicken, chips, spring rolls, samosas turned out great. Mine collected 'grease/fluids' from the meats in the outer tray while the food was in the basket. It was easy enough to clean however

I think at this price, its worth a punt for anyone who is looking for a cheap air fryer. I don't notice any difference between the quality of the food made in this compared to the bigger name brands such as Actifry and Philips etc. I know some people swear Tefal tastes better but for me that's like saying one microwave makes tastier food that another. It just doesn't make sense. The underlying technology is exactly the same.

I am a chip snob and never bought anything other than McCain chips. However with the air fryer even cheaper chips taste great. My freezer if full of 75p bags of Lidl fries that taste as good as McDonalds fries. I've definitely saved more than the cost of the air fryer just on that. The only down side with this models design is that every 5 minutes you need to toss the basket to keep the food evenly cooked and prevent them sticking

My original fryer was destroyed in an accident of my own doing and I bought the Halo Fryer to replace it. Like the Actify it has a rotating basket so you dont need to toss them. I'd recommend that over this especially when they're on sale around the £60 mark. Its definitely my most used and favourite kitchen gadget.

For £30 with a 3yr warranty you can't really go wrong if you've never had an air fryer before.

Yes, in fact it is recommended. They harbor all kinds of bacteria when raw.

I have had one for years and cook both frozen fries / chips and home made chips / wedges. Both cook great. No need to add oil on frozen chips, and home made ones require a light coating. Cut your chips / wedges, put them in a bowl and pour over a drizzle of oil. Stir them around to coat them all and then cook. Lift out and shake every few mins. Some spuds require a lower temperature or they go too dark, others cook great at high. Just trial and error. And the new potatoes around at the min cook lovely wedges in it.

The capacity for these are generally quite small. If there's more than 2 of you I'd definitely pay a little more for the larger one.
Picked one up this morning. What a great little thing. Can’t believe I didn’t know about these. Love the fact it only uses 1Kw of leccy too

Argos are now 49.99 for the larger version. Anywhere selling for 39.99?
Thanks
