Someone will be able to tell you the difference, I think the actify stirs which wouldn't suit all dishes.  I hope someone confirms this.

Mt sister has an Actifry but would buy a Phillips next time.  The main difference is that the Actifry stirs and the Phillips doesn't.  There were other differences but I can't remember what they were.

Troupie from memory you wouldn't be able to put dishes and things in the actifry. Probably the best thing is to check them both out somewhere as they are quite different.

I bought an Actifry a couple of years ago, it was quite expensive then.  It is round and has a paddle in the middle of it, it "paddles" the food around as it cooks - which is ok for chips, but not for other foods. I tried to do arranchini in it once and they were all squashed by the paddling. You can take the paddle out, but then the food doesn't cook evenly. I gave it away to my SIL (who loves it).

I then bought a a Rank Arena family size airfryer, which I like. I've been able to cook many more things in this, a whole chicken, a small pork roast for example.  I think this type is better. The Phillips one is probably the best to get, but also the most expensive.

I too have the phillips and use it heaps.  I bought a cheaper one from Kogan and not so thrilled with that.  It is much slower and doesn't have the fan shape on the bottom.  I think that is what helps the air circulate better in the phillips.

Look into the Kogan. Uni and I have this brand. More economical and on par.

Thanks everyone; I will look into it after Christmas. This gives me some ideas of what to look out for now. Don't want squashed food.

I love the idea of these, but my husband would kill me if I added another gadget to our kitchen.

Air Fryer Chips Ö or French Fries if you prefer

I donít have an air fryer so do not know if this is common knowledge, but I donít recall seeing it anywhere else so thought I would pass it on.  It was just a comment contained in a post on a blog from fatfreevegan.

I made the oil-free fries in my little Phillips air fryer, ... I simply cut thin fries Ö toss them with about a tablespoon of aquafaba and some seasonings. Then I air fry at 360F for 18 minutes, tossing and stirring every 6 minutes.

Marina, now that is a good idea. Thanks
