    I've used mine quite a bit since it arrived last week and they've slowly got better!

    I think the nack is having the patience to dry them throughly before cooking. I tend to find they cook better the thinner they are cut, but that could just be personal taste xx

    LOL i havent got a serious addiction i was only trying it out - like a kid with a new toy.
    I was a bit shall i /shant i , but now ive got it , OH and son will have chips cos son loves chips, but to be honest i probably wont - cos we didnt eat chips before SW. I only got it cos we cant stand the smell of oil cooking.
    But at the moment i am very pleased with it and would say ---get one

    1/2 tbsp of olive oil is only 3 syns - I'd say it's worth it if the chips taste that nice! :drool:

    I soooo want one but I just can't justify the cost. :(

    I bought mine from amazon £117 free delivery i just went ahead and bought it, by the time im at my ideal weight i probably would have saved more than that by not buyin the weekly choc, crisps and pizza so it will pay for itself :)

    (although i must admit total impulse buy)
