      8 a month for chips !

      If you're tempted to spend up to 175 on a Tefal Actifry to get "healthy" chips, then be aware that these machines tend to go up in smoke, often within weeks of the warranty expiring. I bought one of these in May 2008, and used it a couple of times a week. Last week it did what the ones featured on BBC TV Watchdog did, it threw out a lot of blue sparks out of the back, followed by black smoke. I wish I'd seen Watchdog before I bought the thing ! My chips have cost me about 8 a month !

      Tips:

      • If you already have an Actifry, don't leave it unattended - it could cook more than your chips !
      • If you're thinking of buying one - think very carefully about it.
      • If you really must buy one, get one with an extended warranty, because you'll need it ! Get a smoke alarm too

      Pretty sure its a waste of money anyway, the surface area of the chips are the same
      if you cook them in this or a deep fat fryer.

      I cant see there being much caloric difference with chips cooked in this
      or deep fried and then blotted on kitchen paper to remove excess fat.

      The Tefal Actifry does make very nice chips, but so does my local chippy, and even if I drove to that twice a week, I doubt if it would cost 8 a month.
