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: I had one of these for about 18 months, it was really great for chips, wedges, vegtables and all that the manufacturers suggested. Unfortunately I could smell burning one day and it started to spark from the rear section. It was quickly turned off and an electrical burning smell was evident.
Summary: It does do what is said on the box, producing good healthy chips, however mine gave up the ghost [gearing and electrically] after 18 months work of doing chips for two people once per week. Not a difficult load. I WILL NOT be buying another.
Summary: Had one of these for about 3 months and the lid broke. Tefal after about 3 months faffing about sent me a new one. Had that six months and while cooking one day the plastic clips that keep the lid secured broke - looked like plastic fatigue caused by heat and stress..
Summary: My Grandparents own this and it has been fantastic - chips are so low fat that they are suitable for gallbladder and Slimming World diets. The chips cook very quickly and taste beautiful. However, last week whilst using it I heard a huge bang and found the fryer on fire.
