5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the Actifry, 29 Jun. 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Breville VDF065 Halo Health Fryer, 1 Kg, 1200 Watt - White (Kitchen & Home)
Great alternative to my actifry which as predicted, broke after one year's intensive useage. I miss my actifry but decided to give the Halo a go and I'm very pleased. It cooks in the same way but is a bit easier to clean AND you can take out the paddle for cooking delicate food like Salmon*. *This is what I've heard, I only ever cook chips in it to be honest and I use fry lite instead of oil for even lower fat chips. Cooks oven chips to perfection without having burnt bits / raw bits (you can go off and watch telly and forget about them). Great for dieters, have lost 7 1/2 stone with slimming world and this is perfect for syn free chips.

I know it's expensive BUT you can't put a price on your health!

Hi, this is a bit off topic but I see you've lost a lot of weight with SW. I've also just started SW. Can I ask, do you use the fry light spray in the machine for your syn free chips? I tried it in my actifry but they didn't turn out well.
Thanks.

Yes, I've heard that about the paddle. Mine was ok it just stopped giving out heat. I loved my chips done in it, they didn't turn to mush. They tasted like real chip shop chips. The problem for me was that I had bought a Tefal Actifry which stopped working after 1 year, then bought this Breville and it broke after only 6 months. I'm not going to chance it again

I take the paddle out sometimes and just use a plastic fish slice to move them around every few minutes...
