I couldn't understand all the praise for this fryer until I got one. What I mean by that is I didn't understand how it could be so much better than traditional frying when it is isn't actually doing much that is special. Whilst that is true the two things that make this so successful is that firstly it blows very hot air around the pan - this means that it takes away all the moisture from whatever is being cooked very effectively. If you fry steak chunks in this you won't end up effectively stewing them like you often do in a frying pan once the juices have started to sweat out. This also makes it extremely effective when lightly frying onions/peppers etc. They don't end up being soft or mushy - they stay crunchy and lightly fried - like you intended them to be. The other major thing is the very slow moving paddle - the benefits and drawbacks of this are exactly as you imagine. If you fry chicken drumsticks, chips, sausages, roast potatoes etc they all come out perfect. If you fry breadcrumbed mushrooms, southern fried drumsticks and the like you will find a lot of the coating comes off. You can tell the paddle has been well-thought out because it doesn't just move food around and around - there is a place in the pan where food catches and so the paddle up-ends the food and it moves satisfyingly slowly. This is important because it has three benefits. The food doesn't stick, every side of the food is exposed to the hot pan and also the 'drying' air in equal amounts.

In my experience all the foods that are suitable for deep and light frying and not prone to breaking up are better in the actifry. It isn't all that great for foods with high liquid content though, but I think that goes without saying.

Just thought I would publish my experience with this product. I initially saw the demos and was persuaded to purchase the original white unit. Every thing worked well for five months or so until I began to hear that the motor appeared to be labouring every so often. This went on for a few more weeks until I eventually smelt burning and the motor went bang. I wasn't surprised because I had seen the Watchdog program that had highlighted this problem. On further physical examination it became evident that the motor which is housed at the rear of the machine was in a very confined position with very little ventilation to cool it down.

I didn't get the unit replaced under warranty fearing the exact same thing would happen again. After doing much research in to the history and design of this product it obviously became aware that Tefal had also come to the same conclusion because I found that the new Black model, although marketed as a special edition, is greatly improved with an internal cooling fan and more ventilation around the housing.

Because I missed the ease, cleanliness and conveinence previuosly eperienced I took a gamble and purchased a black one to find that it has run faultlessly for a good while with no signs of premature failure, I would urge anybody considering one of these units to pay the additional cost for the black unit.

We were originally going to purchase another 'standard' fryer - the kind you fill up with loads of oil.

We saw this one and at first weren't sure if it would work and if the chips would taste great and if it was actually worth the additional cost! After reading all the reviews we decided to go for this one, and paid slight;y more for black limited edition one.

After trying it first with some frozen oven chips they tasted great! Much nicer than if they had been put in the oven. And as frozen chips already have a coating of oil there was no need to add anymore oil. The second batch of chips we made were home made chips and tasted great too.

The Actifry also comes with a handy cookbook with examples of other foods you can cook in it, such as chicken.

It comes apart really easy to wash, and it can also be put in the dishwasher. The part where the chips go in is like a non stick pan and makes it really quick and easy to wash.

Really simple and easy to operate.

The only downside we can find is the pan is slightly too small for us (family of 6) but we still get a portion of chips each.

Verified Purchase
So 3 months ago I bought an ActiFry Gourmand. I'd heard people raving about the Actifry but was worried by a few reviews here stating the vanilla version tends to break down. However the Gourmand product was highly praised for it's better ventilation and apparently suffered from fewer issues. It was more expensive of course, but I'd rather pay a bit more and not have to deal with the hassle of returns and so forth.

Fast forward 3 months and I'd been using it several times a week while always being very careful to keep it clean and nice, as you would with your pride and joy of the kitchen. Today I go to make a batch of chips and the unit sounded very quiet, the paddle was turning but the fan wasn't blowing hot air at all, I think the heating element must have gone. Despite shelling out for the premium version my Actifry packed up after 3 whole months, I'd be unhappy if some cheapo knockoff version lasted only this long so as you can imagine I'm very unhappy. Going to cost me at least 20 to send it in for repairs never mind all the hassle I'd specifically wanted to avoid.

Would recommend this product in a second if they could make one that doesn't conk out at an alarming rate.

edit: Actually Amazon will replace my product even though it's outside the 30 day window and are even paying for the postage. Much happier now, thanks Amazon!
