    Just seen it advertised on the tv! Looks great. All you need is one tbsp of oil and it makes delicious chips. Has anyone used this. And would people consider using it on calorie counting?

    Ill post the link

    I haven't got one, but I mentioned it on here about a mont ago, and lot's of people reccomended it. Apparently it makes fantastic chips and roast potatos, all low fat. I a seriously considering one. They are expensive though. :)

    I want one for the kids mostly. My lads love proper deep fried chips at grannies but detest oven chips. They do a lot of nagging for me to buy a fryer!!!

    I haven't made real chips in it since swapping over from slimming world 2 weeks ago so not sure of the calorie content.

    I have however cooked the mccains rustic chips in there and they are 101 calories per 100g frozen, when you cook frozen chips you don't have to add oil and they are really nice.

    I might make real chips tonight so will update with calorie contents when I have :)

    It's a great idea if you normally deep fry stuff but I don't so there's not really much point for me! Like Tina said, fried roast potatoes is just wrong! And I'm quite happy to have oven chips, mccain rustics done in the oven are, in my opinion, lush! Would be a lot of money for me to spend on what would basically be a decoration :)

    Actifry's are fab!! Cals are 192 for a portion. The cals are on MPF if you use it, just do a search for Actifry.
    I use mine for quite a few things, chips, rosemary potatoes, chunky veg, sausages, browning mince. There's loads of different things you can do.

    Is that cooked with oil or do we have to add calories on top for that?
