Air fryers

I want one I think, but Mr reckons you can't cook things like samosas and moneybags in them. Anyone tried?

I have bought a Phillips and love it. It cooks chips nice and brown with no fat. Bread Rolls are hot and crusty, Toasted sandwiches cook both sides without turning. Chicken nibbles etc cook and brown perfectly.
I do not use the recipe book. Cheese on toast.
I have the small size which is suitable for the 2 of us.

Yes I have one cooks chicken beautifully and friend uses one to reheat fish and chips from takeaway as it removes excess fat and I cook my roast vege in it but I realise it is capable of much more.

I bought the tefal actifry one . 3 times now. First one I gave it to my parents since they love it, second was off trademe and died, and third from briscoes.

I did cooked samosas in it, just remove the paddle. And it cooks Romano's Pizza perfectly (you can get them from countdown, etc), I just cut a hole where the paddle is, remove the paddle and place the pizza in.

Timely thread (for me) I have been looking at them as well, the Phillips one seems to have the best reviews. Given I am on my own it would save me using my oven all the time which is a waste of power, and seems to be better than a bench top oven.
