    What About The Tefal Air Fryer? | Air Fryers

    Here's the one I bought at a much cheaper price than I paid!

    Edit, looks like I paid the right price for the one I got afterall.

    According to the write up they are great for chips. I'm going to try frozen chips tonight but will do fresh ones next time and will get back to you.

    I do a type of oven chip in mine. Parboil a thick cut spud and then spray with oil and bung in the oven for 20mins of full whack. I prefer the result done this way than deep frying.

    So that's what those things are. I've been wondering what they were for ages whenever I see one.

    I've got two of those Otto's (don't ask why) Make fantastic Yorkshire puddings.
    I've just got into making pizzas and they work a treat.

    Deffo should be on your shopping list...

    your yorkshire puddings looks good...but the photo illustrates my chief complaint with these circular convection ovens.....bakery items end up weighted to one side....particularly cupcakes and muffins.

    has anyone figured out a way to avoid this?

    I think they look rather cute!

    2 eggs, black pepper, salt. Whisk. Add milk. Whisk. Slowly add plain flour and keep whisking until it has a 'creamy' consistency. Cover with clean damp cloth, leave for an hour or so at room temp or shove in the fridge for an hour.
    Heat oil until it's 'smoking.' Then add the mixture and cook at a seriously high temp.
    Hope that helps.

    I find I need to parbake the pizza crust a bit of it ends up soggy. That is for proper man's pizza, not the girly cardboard crust ones.
