    Default Who has an air fryer?

    Anyone here use an air fryer or actifry or the like?

    What are your views on them? Are they worth a purchase?

    We have an actifry. Used to use it heaps for chips and wedges... Occasionally tried chilli con crane and the like.. It's awesome but just don't use it much now.... I think it makes amazing chips ad they taste so much nicer than deep fried.
    If u think u will use it heaps then yes worth the purchase... If not then I'd say no... Now it just takes up cupboard space and have used it 1 time. In over a yr

    I love ours. We had it for about 2.5 yrs and still use it regularly for fish, chips, rissoles/meatballs, risotto balls, nuggets. I've heard you can cook cakes in it but haven't tried it.

    We got an actifry as a wedding present, we pretty much only use it for chips but they come out great! We do like it but really only use it once a fortnight though so I don't think we'd have bought one for ourselves.

    We've got the actifry. We do chips, sausage and nuggets in it and that is about all but it's great, we love it.

    We have an actifry and love it! Use it for chips, spring rolls, nuggets, and roasting vegies. I'd love to use it.for more things, not sure how though as we inherited it. We use it heaps.

    Can you do battered things in it? Or if I was to do fish and chips, best to stick to crumbed?

    I'd love one but they are so expensive.

    For those who have the Tefal one, is it good quality? I read some negative reviews a while back that the lid (I think) was flimsy.

    Do you make your own nuggets? Do they taste good ? I have extra fussy kids so wondering how I can bribe them'.
