2011/08/01: This invention was a good idea but the product was poorly made and the cutting units did not line up properly with the pressing units. this caused the unit to break when pressing to hard to make the cuts. I was sorry to throw it out.

I use this almost weekly!

2013/11/08: for some time, the preheat has not worked and the blades only rotate in one direction but otherwise it works just fine! This has been a great bread maker!  I have given this machine to my neighbors because I just got the Zojirushi BB-CEC20WB Home Bakery Supreme.

Smart Planet CDM-1 Corn Dog Maker smart_planet-cdm-1-corn_dog_maker-instructions.pdf


BTW, I just tried it for French fries and we both liked the results! It is slow but seems to work OK.

2013/05/20: I use this quite a bit!

2013/10/20: We both like bigger and softer fries which I get by adding a few tablespoons of water when I put in the oil.

2014/05/16: I just used the Actifry to reheat KFC crispy chicken pieces. I removed the paddle, put in a paper towel to absorb some oil, and put in the chicken pieces with space between them and heated for about 10-15 minutes.

2014/05/17: I found this link ( which describes some uses/recipes for the Actifry. More recipes:
