Ok, so I know these machines are expensive, but everyone raves about them. So I have been wanting one for ages and they have released a new bigger family model, that supposedly addresses the issues they had with older models ie catching on Fire! So was looking around the Internet and Comet have them on special at £179 which I think is a bit of a bargain when the old one is still over £100, so i splurged and now am eagerly awaiting my first batch of chips, only 1 tsp of oil for 500g of potatoes, which will be shared with my daughter so even less oil. I would rather syn the oil and have more normal tasting chips. So let's see how they taste??!!
