3.0 out of 5 stars Tins are nice, has been bought as a present so not ..., 30 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A lot smaller than expect. All 4 together are only just over 200g, not the claimed 1kg. Tins are nice, has been bought as a present so not tasted yet.

Bit of a rip off in all honestly like a lot of nintendo stuff.

2.0 out of 5 stars Long term review - not so good, 19 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had the Actifry for just under 10 months now and I'll be contacting Amazon shortly as it's falling to bits. It has been used probably 5 days a week but mostly only to cook a small (toddler sized) portion. Couple of times a week it gets used for the 4 of us to do either chips or roast usually frozen as fresh is too much hassle and never came out that great even when even sized, well rinsed and dried.

the good points firstly. After a bit experimentation with various brands we settled on McCain french fries and it produces these bang on perfect every time, 10 minutes for anything up to a couple of portions, 15 to 20 if for everyone, give them a shake in the middle. Sausages as well it does a treat.

Now the bad points, as mentioned above it's falling apart. At least one of the restraining clips in the handle has snapped as the handle now flexes and wobbles alarmingly with even a modest sized portion. It's never had anywhere near the 1.5kg it is supposed to handle probably less than 1 kg max. The little clear cover that sits on the lid around the handle started falling off after a couple of weeks and now the lid has a crack running from one of the front catches up and across the top working its way to a corresponding crack on the other side. When the 2 meet then it won't be useable. Nearly £200 and it doesn't even last a year!

Would I buy another? Not the tefal design too many issues, will try another make if Amazon refuse to replace it I think.

2.0 out of 5 stars probably a good read if you can fill in the blanks, 12 April 2012
like the other reviewers i found this a frustrating read due to the missing words and letters which litter the kindle edition. i did perciver but it spoiled an otherwise excellent read.....at least i think it was.

1.0 out of 5 stars Logic 3 Wii nunchuck - Poor, 22 Mar. 2009
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Poor quality on these, have been through 2 in 3 months. Each time, after a short period of use they break, shorting out the wiimote power.

Avoid, spend the little extra on a proper one.
