    Hi all

    We finally went out and bought an actifry this weekend and my god that thing is awesome.

    We have done Chips in there which are absolutely delicious, and last night i did a chicken, veg and noodle stir fry

    I have also been using the frylight with it still, just giving an even spray over the stuff you are cooking

    The results are amazing

    I can honestly say its the best £100 i have ever spent on a kitchen appliance :)

    Anyone got any nice recipes?

    Cheers

    Paul

    PS also got my 3rd weigh in tomorrow, fingers crossed x

    hiya

    its basically a fryer which allows you to fry things like chips for example, but only using a very small amount of oil.

    This makes it much lower in syns as you only need to measure out the points for the oil used.

    I have actually continued to use the Frylight spray as this is even lower in syns lol

    It basically rotates the food you are cooking to ensure an even cooking

    It really is brilliant

    :)

    It was actually £104 to be exact but still a bargain

    this looks awsome, can you cook the chips from potatoes or are you talking frozen chips?

    you make them from normal potatoes as oven chips have oil infused into them already :)

    Real potato, not sure about frozen, suppose they will be ok though.

    I do bakers, wedgies, sweet pot, butternut squash. Morrisons diet sausages are fab. Using 1 tbsp oil is better, but if I'm a bit short on syns then will use frylite.

    Can cook meat, stir fry's...although I haven't tried that yet...still busy experimenting with pots, sausages & veg!!

    Dunno, this may be a solution.

    WII Fit alternative...WII Fitness coach £14.91 inc delivery Asda online.

    Running shoes, I know they are expensive, so why not invest in a trampette, I 've been using one with the Fitness coach to help with impact, but you can always run on it...also use it for running on WII Fit. £12 Argos.

    Actifry...sorry no solution there...really sorry!!!
