Re: The Actifry ,Recipes and more

Thanks to this forum, I decided to buy an Actifry. Got mine yesterday for GBP109.

My first try is Mongolian Chicken. All 12 chicken wings cooked at the same time. They looked and tasted exactly like deep fried chicken. I didn't put any oil at all.

Yeah, I can cater a whole party with drum sticks that way.

Re: The Actifry ,Recipes and more

The moment I move into a place with a bigger kitchen, this will be the very first appliance I purchase! The pics you guys post on here make me drool especially knowing the food is not dripping in oil.

Meisie, I was surprised to see 1/4 cup of oil (fat from the chicken) removed from the 12 chicken wings that I cook. No regret buying Actifry

Re: The Actifry ,Recipes and more

Salt and pepper chicken - just like those sold in Camden's Asian foodstalls, but minus the oil

Marinate in salt, pepper, soy sauce, five spice powder, corn flour, rice flour

20 mins in Actifry. Served with lettuce, topped with mint & dill mayo.

Re: The Actifry ,Recipes and more

Old thread worth being dug out.

Did you guys notice there's a new, more versatile Actifry? And it's much cheaper than the original one was when it hit the market.

I'm not going to test it any time soon, though. My old one is still working fine.

Re: The Actifry ,Recipes and more

So guys, lately the yearning for fried food has been consuming me and I want a solution without all of the fat and mess... do those of you who still have one still recommend an Actifry?
