When the Airfryer arrived we were really surprised at how big it is, for us this was a major downside because worktop space in the kitchen is limited. However, it does look nice which is a bonus. Anything to improve my exhausted old kitchen!
Anyway, we took the challenge and cooked what are essentially chicken nuggets and chips in the Airfryer. This proved interesting as I've never done something like this before. It was a bit fiddly to prepare the chicken and I needed to cook them in two batches (which isn't perfect) as we eat a lot in our house! However, the cooking process in the Airfryer was really easy and quick. I cooked the chips after the chicken and kept the chicken warm in the (top) oven, the only part of our oven the actually works. The chips required a bit of fiddling about, you had to open the drawer and give them a shake a couple of times. For me, this was a bit of a hassle because I am a bit of a shove in the oven and leave type. However, they were cooked exceptionally quickly.
|Really very nice chips|
We have tried a few other recipes in the Airfryer, not least because our main oven broke. They have all proved quick and easy to cook and compared with the Tefal Actifry the speed is a definite benefit. I have to say that it you enjoy real chips, like the ones your mum used to make in the deep fat fryer then YOU MUST go out and buy one of these it will be one of the best kitchen investments you make...
