Tefal actifry family size bargain

#1
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??!!

I've seen quite a few people on here taking about them and saying how good they are. I think to spend that much money on one they would have to be really really good!! Apparently you can use fry light in them too.
Let me know how they turn out? xx

Let me know too please! I really want one but would have to prove to OH that I'd use it as lots of gadgets end up in the back of the cupboard in my kitchen... especially as this one is so expensive!

I use this all the time with fry light for syn free chips. My hubby likes to have them with fry light also because he doesn't feel so guilty having chips then. I like to cook them really well.

As previously mentioned I cook my roast potatoes with fry light in the acti fry also. Ok not as nice as real roasties but at least I can still have them with my roast dinner and not feel guilty

drum rolllllllllllllllllllllll......they were lovely,, I used 500g of spuds, which once shared with children, was about half a saucer full of chips(for me),, so only 1/2tsp oil,, they were lovely,, only took 26 mins to cook start to finish,, and came with lovely recipe book that could be easily made sw friendly,,, it isnt the same as the black one,, it is a newer larger 1.5kg capacity one, with safety cut off etc,,, really happy with it!:D

Oooh fab. I made SW Chips tonight but just can't get them quite right (certainly nothing like any pictures in the recipe books!!) and the OH left most of them :( so am definately thinking of investing.
Thanks for letting us know how you got on. xx

Could any one post a pic of Actifry chips? I'm tempted to get one but would like a nose at how they turn out first.
