This is a multi cooker.

published

We love this product as it saves us lots of time with cooking. It is easy to clean and it does multiple things like frying, heating, grilling. I can even fry peanuts and it turned out to be crunchy, and quick. Just bought another one for my mum. I would recommend this product to everyone.

Best cooking ware I have ever bought

published

This has to be the best kitchen appliance I have ever bought. It is very convenient and easy to use. It saves me from using my large oven wasting power and time to heat up as this machine heats up in a blink. Highly recommended to all

Great addition to kitchen

published

Very satisfied with purchase, worth it just for the crispy chips you can make without excess oil. Love reheating croissants in it and making "fried" bread sticks. Also caramelises roast veges well. And it's so fast to use, no preheating like with a conventional oven, and the nonstick surfaces work well. Stick it in the dishwasher!

Love this machine

published

You can use this good quality piece of kitchen equipment to cook almost anything you would in an oven.
Hot chips (home made or shop bought) come out perfectly. Reheating different food such as pastries to chicken wings or even roast meats from raw.
So versatile we use it daily!
Uses little power and I can reheat small amounts of things without turning on our huge oven.

Purchased in April 2018 at Harvey Norman for $299.00.

XXL turbo is awesome

published

This is a great machine, I would not buy anything smaller as it's a waste..the XXL is only just big enough for two adults maybe three.
I love my Airfryer although it was way over priced. 2nd year using it on a daily basis.

Very convenient, but failure prone

published

I use this air fryer a lot - it's very convenient for thinks like frozen chips, schnitzels and roast vegetables, etc.

Unfortunately I have experienced several design faults that have left me wondering whether I made the right choice. I had to send it back once when the interface died, and the new unit rattles and shakes like crazy (there is clearly something wrong with the fan) with an interlock that doesn't seem to work either.

Without these issues it would be a much better product.

Just loving my Airfryer

published

Very impressed with this airfryer, had the standard white Philips Airfryer for approx 6 years. still works but the basket no longer clicks in the draw properly and if I don't hold onto the bottom falls on the ground. Perfect opportunity to purchase one of these sleek black airfryers. Have cooked a roast chicken and vegetables, lamb cutlets and porterhouse steak and they were all done beautifully in fact the steak was a budget one which tends to be a little tough but cooked in the airfryer was so tender. To be able to cook a whole chicken in this appliance is fabulous, no need to fire up the big oven. I decided to go with Philips again because of the after sales help I received from my 1st airfryer, plus the quality is very, very good.

One of my best buys

published

I use my airfryer at least 4/5 times a week as I hate cooking in oil. We usually cook our crumbed chicken, roast potatoes or chips, roasted cauliflower or practically anything that is oven baked. It cooks very thoroughly and it doesn't heat up my house like my oven does. Cleaning is easy as each section pulls out and can be washed in hot soapy water.

Simply Amazing

published

This Philips AirFryer is simply an amazing piece of technology. It is super efficient in cooking food and results in food being crispy without the need of oil. Would absolutely recommend for anyone looking for a healthier way to cook. It cooked 50 mini Dim Sims in 20 miniutes with not one undercooked or still frozen. This product is super easy to clean and can be used from baking to grilling to frying.

Air fryer fries the food pretty quick and the food is always crispy when taken out. The chips especially! However the air fryer is difficult to clean due to its heavy weight.

We bought this item because our friend recommendation. We used it three times and the airfryer wont work at all not even the digital display. So we returned it to JB Hifi where we bought it from and apparently its been couple people come back with it. Very disappointed! As we had big expectations with this product and shame that we cant get the different one because that was the only one left in store ( this is happened after Christmas-Boxing Day- New Year sale)

Perfect everyday appliance - a kitchen staple!

published

We have had the original, smaller Philips Airfryer for about 2 years and used it often, but after upgrading to the XXL we honestly couldnt live without it! The XXL is the perfect size to create a whole meal for two such as a roast with veges or our weekly regular of homemade chips and marinated protein like chicken or fish. The XXL has a really easy to clean design as the basket is fully removable, and the interface is really easy to use as well. Definitely recommend!

Airfryer is a must have in your life

published

If you don't own an air fryer you should definitely get one now. Not having to turn on your oven and wait a long time is so rewarding when you want to make things like fried foods. Also removes the oil so it's healthier and it can heat up bread very easily and much better than using a microwave. Don't really see how I can have a house without this item.

The most perfect invention ever made!

published

This is a 5 / 5 rating from me due to the below reasons..
I've absolutely love the airfryer. Used it almost everyday for most of my essential meals. Vegetable, meats, fries and everything under the sun. If you like you can be creative and make something great from it, such as Japanese fried chicken, aranchini balls etc.

The airfryer has definitely saved me a lot of time doing the cooking for the family and myself during my busy week. When I feel hungry late at night, I can just simply start this beauty up straight away without any kind of wait time, which is awesome!

Completely change the way I see fried food. Things are alot more healthier and food I love to eat is becoming much more guilt free. :)

Amazing product, juiciest meat ever.

published

Since receiving this airfryer Ive been using it on the regular. Ive cooked chicken, seafood, and deep fried food. The results are very juicy meats, that my traditional oven could never do. There was also barely any leftover liquid at the bottom of the tray, just the fats, which meant the juices stayed inside the meat. Least to say I am very impressed with this result. I look forward to cooking with it every time.

Premium Airfryer XXL Digital HD9650/93

Hello, I purchased a Philips XXL airfryer.. the first time I made chicken bbq in it, it worked. The second day I again tried to make chicken but it's fan didnt turn on; no sound of fan. The airfryer was heating up, and I could feel some heat coming out of the vent at the back of machine. I took it to the shop they replaced it without checking.
Now after 1 year, same problem has occurred. I used it last night. It was perfect. Today when I tried using it, fan is not on as no sound of it. And, the airfryer is heating up and heat can be felt near the cent at the back of it. Please help as in the condition these days, I cant take it to service centre.

Premium Digital Airfryer

I have a xxl digital Philipps airfryer for almost one year now(bought from Qatar). When I turn it on,the display turns on with no beep sound . The touch buttons don't work to set the timer and temperature. When I press the knob button to start heating, nothing happen. I feel so disappointed for buying it again after my last Xl one failed also with a board issue.
