    OMG you can have supercrispy chips with supersoft tender chicken or beef stew in the slow cooker every day for the rest of your life.

    Donnie46 Slow but sure....

    They have been demostrating the Actifry on the Ideal World Shopping Channel tonight, it was being sold at £149.99 + p&p

    She put a teaspoon of oil in the actifry, then added some chipped potatoes and hey presto beautful crispy, brown chips in no time at all.

    I would love Santa to get me one, but my Santa has already bought me a new chest freezer - still I could grovel couldn't I, LOL.....

    Want one. The cheapest I've found online here in France is 139€ - that's about £125 incl. p&p. Is that about the price in the UK?

    Ooooh I love my actifry. Had mine since February and yes it was expensive but I use it almost every day and if it broke I would not hesitate to buy another.

    Quorn nuggets come out delish, put them in with my syn free chips. Sausages are lovely in it. Done some roast veg in it. Little cubed potatoes.

    You can just spray the chips with fry light BUT I think they are a little more soggy than if you use a smidge of olive oil. That said either way they are a darn sight better than the old par-boil, drain, towel off, bake, turn, bake, bake some more method!

    The drier the chips are when you put them in the actifry the crsipier they come out. Oooh I'm gonna have egg n' chips for lunch now.

    The oil can be a HEX, but I usually syn it, we serve 4 people from 1tbsp oil, so is 1 1/2 syns.

    I am totally ignoring this thread, because I would love an Actifry!

    You're not on your own in getting kitchen equipment for gifts though Fern - I am getting a food processor for my birthday, which is just before Christmas! I have a blender at the mo, but it's just not right for all the chopping and mixing and stuff. It's a labour saving device :D The other year I got pans. It's sad! LOL! I am hoping OH balances it out with some nice jewellery...(I can wish!)
