I do love a chip but my figure does not. I am attempting to shift a bit of weight at the moment but I don’t do diets. I like to try to eat healthily and up my exercise. Unfortunately at the moment I struggle with exercise which means I can’t burn off the creme egg I might have scoffed at 9.30am so therefore I need to be more careful with what I’m putting in my mouth (if Cadbury’s go into receivership it may or may not be a direct result of my healthy eating). So without further ado I bring you the VonShef Digital Air Fryer!
Now, I’m going to be honest here it’s an impressive looking beast, it’s sleek and black and it’s pretty big! If you have a small kitchen this appliance is probably not for you unless you have a cupboard to store it in while not in use. Luckily I had a spare square foot on the side to fit it. It has a large digital display which is good for someone with failing eyesight like myself and is fairly easy to work. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. The first time I used it I cut the chips too thick and they weren’t quite done in the middle, I learnt from my mistake though and the next time cut them slightly thinner – still chunky though. They were fab – even the hard-to-please Monsieur Incidental enjoyed them, and he isn’t really a chip fan!
The most notable thing for me was that a whole portion of chips that was enough for two adults and two children only requires 1 teaspoon of oil! That’s amazing! Plus you can cook all manner of things in it – I thought they were just for chips (maybe that was just me). They are easy to clean – although you can’t put them in the dishwasher they clean quickly with a sponge and a spot of washing up liquid. So all in all if you want to eat healthily without giving up your chips or other fried foods I would definitely suggest the VonShef digital air fryer.
