    Thanks Starlight, there are so many sections here I didn't think to look in recipes lol!

    Pizzle: I use frylight and it work really well, and I dont think it is any harder to clean (especially as its dishwaher safe)

    Can someone explain to me what an Actifry is all about? Everyone seems to have/want one these days and at first i thought the point was to spray the oil out so you dont need much so healthier but obviously not if people are putting fryLight in it?:confused:

    What is it and what exactly does it do? Ta x

    Quite simply its a deep fat fryer without the deep fat part! Have a look on amazon for piccies/reviews.
    It's not cheap but its my best buy recently. Slimming World/Home made chips from scratch in less that 30 mins. And roasties are gorgeous too.

    I spray the frylight over the potatoes, not pour it in so you use the same amount as you would normally use.

    This is why Im not sure I've understood it - if you're spraying them with Fry Light anyway why is it any different to putting them in the oven? It doesnt take much longer than 30 min to do that anyway.:confused:
