    Anyone get one for Xmas? I did and adore it. The chips are goregous, and I'm just lightly spraying them with frylight rather than oil.

    Anyone used theirs for anything apart from chips?

    I love my Actifry too but with a child in the house and 2 that visit frequently (and my snacking) it doesn't get used for anything bar chips (yet!!)

    It sounds daft but it took me ages to leave them in for long enough! I used to take them out when they had brown blotches and were cooked - but they were also a bit limp. It's only recently I've left them in for the extra 10 minutes or so and they've come out golden and crisp

    I have had an actifry for almost a year now and I love it. If it broke I would replace it without hesitation. I do my SW chips in it. But also for the kids, oven chips, nuggets, sausages, roast veggies. My dad has done a chilli in his but don't ask me how!!!

    love mine, currently going through fad of doing my chips ( with a good dollop of fry light) for 20 mins then I add in chopped gammon and mushroom ... cook for the last 10mins or so, meanwhile fry(light) a couple of eggs :) its a corker of a tea :).
    My mums also now got one and uses it for loads of stuff. curry was her last thing i think .

    I would love to try one but we eat so few chips in our house that I cant justify the £100+ . Is it really worth it?

    My personal expierance was that your spending 100+ on the luxury of lazyness. E.g. no more par boiling etc.. i took mine back. I could do exactly the same if not better in my oven for just a bit more time.
    Still gutted it wasnt all i wanted it to be.. tbh. x
