    I use mine loads! Butternut squash is lovely. Peppers work really well too. I haven't tried any meals as such, so I'll subscribe here too

    Yay - I got one too! Cooked roast potatoes and roast parsnips so far and they were great. Going to try a stir fry in it over the weekend.

    Oh I love my actifry. I'm not very adventurous but do experiment with different oils and spices in my potatoes. One thing we really like is baby new potatoes popped in there in their skins. Bit of rosemary out of the garden and some sea salt and olive oil. IMMENSE!!

    Its funny, i looked at these on Ebay the other day, going by the perceived logic of them only using a teaspoon of oil or whatever it is. I shall take a proper look at this thread, and may well invest in one. I have a deep fat fryer, never ever used, still in the box (bought just before i started weight loss) and i am considering turning it into a water bath for sous vide cooking (i have a vacuum sealer as well). I have done it on a hob in a pan of water and it works well. The actifry would be a logical next move it would seem.

    I've had one since last Christmas. They are ace. Try. Chopping done potatoes into tiny chunks and start them off. After 10 mins add chopped onion, herbs, chops mushrooms. Cook for a further 5-10 mins till potatoes look done. Add 2-3 mixed eggs (dash if milk salt and pepper) cook till eggs scrambled.

    Mmmmm bliss and easy to do

    Sounds lovely. Do you use raw potatoes in it or do they have to be cooked before you put them in? Will defo try this...

    It's not my recipe but they will be raw, just chop them tiny. If you try to cook precooked potato in there it will just go mushy

    Which one have people got? Argos do the basic one at 109 at the moment, or is that too basic?

    I got the Actifry plus which is a third bigger than the basic and it's currently 109 at Amazon.

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...ag=minimins-21

    I wouldn't want one smaller than that tbh.
