Does anyone use a dry fryer, am thinking of buying one, but thought I'd ask if anyone had experience of them and if they're any good of course!
We use an ACTIFRY it does the same but hardly any grease/ fat /oil required
Quick reply, thanks very much
We have a Phillips one. I love it.
Thanks for the replies much appreciated!
We have an ActiFry too and use it 3-4 times a week. You can cook so much in it, even stuff like chili/bolognese! Whilst ActiFry chips aren't quite the same as proper homemade fried chips, they *are* tasty nonetheless (and a hell of a lot healthier!). I'll occasionally chuck a few frozen sausages in there too with NO oil, you should see all the fat that comes out compared to grilling them! First few times you use it there's a slightly plasticky/fumey smell, (but doesn't affect the food whatsoever), however it totally dissipates after a few uses. Easy to wash, and dishwasher safe too (obvously not the whole thing, but the pan and paddle!)
Thanks for all the helpful comments everyone
Hello AI,just hyad a quick look at the ActFry job ... there are loads of models!! Can you please identify your models etc ,, especially the one that does sausages !! sounds great
We have a Philips deep frier, makes great chips etc, French mother in law has the 'no fat job' chips are crrrap, after seeing my real chips, she has bought a deep, real chip chip chip maker, so moules frites next season (soon) chez Collette will be acceptable.
Not sure why anyone would want to dry fry, except for the obvious problem of using processed vegetable oil, which is really bad for you. If you can find a good frying medium - olive oil (contrary to common perception) or nut oils, proper frying is much more satisfying and as long as you don't batter or crumb, is just as healthy.
