Actifryer

Aldi have the Teflon actifryer on offer this Thursday

£90 , Iíve often thought about buying one, if only for doing chips for the grandkids

And maybe for us too, who doesnít like chips ?

Never really got my head around how they can work though

I believe you can cook all sorts in them , may be handy on an electric hook up in the van

Anyone use one?

Yes Sandra. We looked at them after a friend said they were marvelous and healthy. But decided it was just another expensive gadget to clog up the kitchen at £145.
But then my wife came across one at a boot sale for Ä10 and snapped it up. It just needed a good clean and it's brilliant especially for oven chips with NO added fat.

Short while ago we came across another one apparently new in the box but German instruction book. After a haggle I bought it for an amazing Ä8. It is absolutely like new.
So we sold the 'old' one for Ä20 and basically love our new free one.

But so far we haven't experimented with other things in it yet.

Dead easy Pat. My wife does it.!!!!

But seriously, the pan and impeller comes out to wash with the dishes and the only other thing is a wipe is the underside of the Perspex lid.
There is a small filter we pop in the dishwasher now and again but thats it.

Well I bought it but not sure

We donít eat chips that often

And when we do

We relish in beef dripping

So we may return it

Apparently you can cook just about anything else with less/no fat which is obviously better for us. Although we haven't tried yet.

Have looked up recipes for the actifryer

It seems there are varies models and not always clear if the recipes work across them all

I guess Paella would work, would do the stirring for you !

But how much fat would be used in frying a steak or chop in a frying pan

Iíd just use a teaspoonful anyway

And would the paddle break things apart ?

Still undecided, and of course I havenít used it yet

Just start with the chips Sandra and progress from there. I would be interested to hear how you get on.

Right

Down to you

Iíll try chips with a spoonful of beef dripping

And then Iím stuck with this

To be fair £95 isnít make or break for me

Still leaves the kids and grandkids ,I/2 a million

Which is set aside for them

Itís money I donít want or need

Unless I decide to do world cruises , joints permitting

Post shadow

And if I live long enough
