    I've got a Phillips. Don't know the model number but it's got an electronic display. Got nothing to compare it against, but it's been fine.

    Ditto here, it's been fine.

    Any recommendations for stuff to do in it? Has mainly been used for chips/sweet potato chips so far.

    Great for most things you fry/do in the oven.

    Great for frozen samosas, spring rolls etc

    I've never used a deep fat fryer in my life! Got by with the microwave, the oven and the hob.

    it's not a deep fat fryer . It uses a tablespoon of oil .

    No problem.
  • Funny enough, after a bit of research I got a duronic. Just had its first run out, lovely rosemary wedges with one teaspoon of oil. Very impressed.
  • I'll get one when Lidl start selling them for £30..............

  • Are these inferior to traditional fryers when it comes to things like fish done in batter?
  • We still use those big old fashioned box shaped things with a door that we called an oven.

    I'd think it wouldn't be quite as nice, though if you're not a fan of greasy food it might be better. The trade off is using no oil

    Depends on the size i think. They aren't very big.

    Not sure how much cooking you do, but a fryer and over do different things

    Gordon Ramsey here. If I put chicken in the oven without any oil what does an air fryer do different to the oven?

    You can't fry battered fish in an air fryer any more than you can in an oven, the batter would just run off before it set, you can only coat it with a dry mix like breadcrumbs.
