If you have followed us for a while then you will know , I love being in the kitchen . Whether it’s cooking or baking - I absolutely love it , and so do the girls.I also love a good kitchen gadget - and if they are going to impress me and also save time , then it’s an added bonus and I am definitely all for trying it out :)

A lot of you have mentioned the air fryers that have completely taken over , over the last few years . My mother in law has one too and is always telling us we should purchase one as they are a life saver , are they really that good? I did wonder.

We have been lucky enough to be sent out the air fryer from VonShef and I really couldn’t wait to try it out.

Honestly , if you make chips from scratch and do them in the oven , it takes ages!. Especially for us , a family of five - five portions of chips to par boil and then oven bake .

So the two things i was desperate to try was of course chips , and roast potato’s!. We never have roasties on our Sunday dinner anymore - I’m just rubbish at doing them .

I put the air fryer to the test at lunch time last week and popped in two potatoes , skin on,a bit of fry light and crossed my fingers and toes. They came out perfect!, literally perfect!. I can’t actually believe how easy the air fryer is to use .

So it has two settings -bottom one is  a timer so you can set the time you wish to have it on for  and not have to worry about it which is a godsend when you have a toddler to see to .

 I would recommend going in and giving your food a shake , depending on what you are cooking , definitely chips and roast potatoes need a little shake.

Then you have the dial which sets the heat . You will figure out which is best once you have used your air fryer a few times . I googled best settings for some of the stuff I have made over the past week so it isn’t difficult to figure out  and definitely no burning going on :)

So over the weekend we had our usual roast and I tried out the roast potatoes, cut the potatoes into quarters, sprayed them with some fry light and I actually sprinkled on some roast potato seasoning.

In the air fry on 140 for half hour and they were absolutely delicious!. I gave them a couple of shakes and sprayed a little bit more frylight after 20 minutes to make sure they were extra crispy and they were perfect.

Everyone enjoyed them , and asked for seconds!. I can honestly say the air fryer will definitely be up there with the top gadgets I will be using in the kitchen .

 I can not wait to try out some new ideas - homemade hash browns are next :)

The VonShef air fryer retails at £43.99 and is free delivery :)
