Breville Halo Plus Health Fryer VDF105, White/Gree&hellip by Breville

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The halo fryer is a brilliant piece of kit to have in your kitchen. If you ignore the extreme neon green motorcyle-helmet styling, it is simple to use and much healthier than a traditional fryer. Is has heat sources above and below which means in addition to chips and potato products, you can also cook chicken, fish and meats using the grill function.

I have tried a few of the recipes from the cookbook which comes with the fryer and have so far had a 100% success rate. The chips were fluffy inside, crispy on the outside and the Cajun potatoes were spicy and nicely crunchy. I also tried grilling some chicken which was done in 20 minutes and was still juicy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain-tastic, 23 May 2014
Having been left disappointed by the Opteka I decided to take the next step up in the GPS unit stakes and went for the Phottix.

Iron Curtain: The Crushing of Eastern Europe 1944-&hellip by Anne Applebaum
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A well researched and expansive collection, showing the development of communism in Eastern Europe. A great book for research or if you want to learn more about the birth of communism outside of the USSR. Very interesting subject, however the author does have a habit of labouring over small details and occasionally assuming too little of the reader. It is unlikely you would pick up a book of this nature without an interest and some background knowledge of the subject and I sometimes felt like the book was more of a lecture than an informative script. This aside, I enjoyed the book and think it is worth reading - just be prepared to skip the occasional paragraph!
