Summary: I thought I'd read plenty of reviews before buying, but I missed how long it takes to actually cook anything. I have an electric oven so was hoping this would speed up tea time on the odd occasion we have chips after being at work all day, french fries are just a soggy mess and end up going either...
Summary: The product in general is great, no problems at all so maybe I just had an odd one that broke. After only using it a couple of time I noticed the lid had a big gap at the back which wasn't there before.
Summary: on checking cooking times I found that the time taken to cook 1kl chips was 35-40 mins at 1200 watts making them very expensive to cook compared with other methods and at liest double the time of oven chips or traditional deep fried chips.
Summary: We bought this because of the low fat aspect, we've used it a couple of times but still not sure how i feel about it. The chips take quite a while to cook and are very bland. Could take a bit of getting used to but we'll persevere for a while longer.
Summary: This is a fantastic pan for cooking chips, roasted potatoes, meat, chicken and stir fries etc. I did read the reviews stating that they were guilty of going on fire but hey , this doesn't happen to me. Not until last night, that is.
Summary: I purchased the actifry about nine months ago. I love it for chips, onion rings, crispy bacon, reheating pizza, heating nans etc. etc. Great device. However I am now on my second machine and third lid.
Summary: I've had the Actifry for 16 Months, I worked great until last Night, I was cooking chips in it when I heard a loud BANG followed by a grinding noise I went into the kitchen to find white smoke billowing out of the motor section.
Summary: I bought one of these 21 months ago and was delighted with it. Chips were great even oven ready ones cooked evenly and crispy. Then one day whilst cokking chips I was alerted to a burning plastic smell.
