Not sure why anyone would want to dry fry, except for the obvious problem of using processed vegetable oil, which is really bad for you.  If you can find a good frying medium - olive oil (contrary to common perception) or nut oils, proper frying is much more satisfying and as long as you don't batter or crumb, is just as healthy.

We have a Philips deep frier, makes great chips etc, French mother in law has the 'no fat job' chips are crrrap, after seeing my real chips, she has bought a deep, real chip chip chip maker, so moules frites next season (soon) chez Collette will be acceptable.

We have an ActiFry too and use it 3-4 times a week. You can cook so much in it, even stuff like chili/bolognese! Whilst ActiFry chips aren't quite the same as proper homemade fried chips, they *are* tasty nonetheless (and a hell of a lot healthier!). I'll occasionally chuck a few frozen sausages in there too with NO oil, you should see all the fat that comes out compared to grilling them! First few times you use it there's a slightly plasticky/fumey smell, (but doesn't affect the food whatsoever), however it totally dissipates after a few uses. Easy to wash, and dishwasher safe too (obvously not the whole thing, but the pan and paddle!)
