Hi,

Anyone got one of these? If so what do you cook in it? We use our deep fryer a lot and I like the idea that this is so much healthier.

gave one to mum for christmas - she loves it - and surprisingly it's great for none fried meals too - she has made pasta and rice dishes in it - came with a recipe book and can also find heaps online - the only thing she did mention was when cooking chips it's not a huge amount that it makes ...

I love my actifry, having an Autistic daughter that doesnt have much variety in what she will eat I use mine probably every two or three days. It cooks 1kg bag of store bought chips....you dont add any oil for these. Otherwise it works great with a tablespoon of oil for homemade chips or wedges. Only takes about 20-30 mins or so to cook, you just chuck it in press a button and wait for it to do its stuff. Nuggets and mini spring rolls also come up great in it. I havent actually tried any of the other recipes but it comes with a book of recipes.

Is it much different to putting it in the oven though?

Chips come out pretty much like deep fried chips but without the oil, golden and crunchy....YUM
