Has anyone tried one of these?

Tried looking for reviews on the NET, but whilst there were loads, I got the strong impression most were getting a benefit from what they wrote.

I would feel more comfortable with the opinion of an honest, unbiased, evaluator, as Triumph owners are.

No but I have a Tefal actifry which I think is brilliant far cleaner than a deep fat frier the last one of those I had got thrown out complete with oil as it was easier than changing the oil.

I remember being wrong once before Laurence Cochrane Newtownards Northern Ireland. 1972 Gt6 2600EFI The Mutt. Some original parts fitted, Not many ! Early PI motor overbored to 2.6. Lightened & balanced, ported chambered, cam'd 6-3-1 manifold. Running on DTA engine management system incorperating the PI throttle bodies fitted with electronic injectors and throttle position sensor. 0-60 4.7s & 7000rpm. Seriously annoys owners of modern stuff ! (particularly coz its a heap) 2500 S box with competition 28% od. 3.63 diff with a quaife in it, innit ! Rotoflex based rear but with a swing spring fitted & sliding shafts.(swing spring rotoflex without rotoflex's). Koni's front Spax rear. Hydraulic handbrake. Citroen xantia discs 11,1/4 in dia under Morris Garages 15 in Maestro alloys.

Thanks Laurence.
I do like my fish and chips but the quality that is available around here has fallen off to such an extent that I started doing my own with decent fish.
The deep fryer makes such a mess and filtering the oil such a pain (especially when hot), I thought I'd try an air "fryer"

Any experience with fish and chips?

Your feedback is appreciated.

Mal I think fish might break up in it as it moves the contents round the pan but for chips its cracker, sausages chicken and bacon work the very best. Tho aparently you can cook all sorts in it but fish I do'nt know.

The Philips thing doesn't have a paddle Laurence, so fish may be OK.
You have to move chips around half way through the cooking, so probably won't cook them as evenly as the Tefal.
Also not recommended for doing sausages as too much fat.
Sounds as though there are pros and cons for the different designs.
Thanks for your input,
                                   Mal.

Anyone else with experience with these Air "Fryers"?

Thank you for the further input Dave.
How do the chips compare with deep fried chips?
Are they dried out?

Is this serious, this thread?
I'm not sure whether to be sarcastic or not - which is unusual for me.


Do not touch the glass. Do not approach the glass. You pass him nothing but soft paper - no pencils or pens. No staples or paperclips in his paper. Use the sliding food carrier, no exceptions. If he attempts to pass you anything, do not accept it. Do you understand me?

Yep, it's for real Smithy.
Hard to believe, maybe, but they have caught my interest.

They're not actually for producing fried air though.

See? Now THAT'S what I was thinking - perpetual fried food from the atmosphere - you know me too well.

Yes, but after you have cooked them they are covered in breadcrumbs from the fish fingers
