    Well I'm not too sure basically you cut your potato rinse and dry then put in machine, add fry light (you can add oil but then it's syns) and turn on. There's a paddle that moves them round then 30 mins later there done!!! They were lovely and you can look lots of other things in them!!

    The good thing about the Actifryer is the convenience value...put your chips in turn on the timer and forget about them. No par boiling potatoes, no shuffling them and reapplying fry light! Don't even have to peel the skins. Can't put a price on that I say ;-)

    Hun I work out 4 times a week alone and just started jillian's 30DS 20mins every morning on top. That's more than enough body magic that I need so I shall be relaxing in a hot bubble bath for 30mins in the evenings waiting for the timer to go off ;-) lol

    Well the thing is we've recently moved house and the oven is very poor quality so until we update the kitchen which will cost thousands, we treated ourselves!!

    I fancy getting one of these but I'm not sure whether it will end up in the cupboard like the juicer, mixer, etc that I've bought because I thought it'd be a good idea.

    How much fry light do you put in?

    I love my Airfyer chips - its a similar gadget but i think its a little faster.

    I think if you want a gadget that saves you some time then go for it.

    You only live once!

    I love my Actifry and use it for cooking all sorts of things, not just SW chips.

    No matter how many different ways I tried I couldn't get them nice in the oven - perhaps it's because I am on bottled gas? :confused:

    I bought mine for just under £100 and it gets used virtually every single day for something or another so I get my money's worth out of it!

    I agree with Laura, you can't put a price on convenience and as I work 12 hour days, anything that can save me a bit of time when I get home is well worth it :D
