This is perfect! Cannot live without it.

published

Very satisfied with my purchase. I use this air fryer every day to make my kid's school lunch! So easy to use, and it fries both sides evenly without needing to flip food. Cleaning is also very easy.

Purchased in at Harvey Norman for $200.

Decent and functional airfryer

published

I have the large size version and it does it’s job - I fry or reheat small batches of chicken pieces. It comfortably holds a medium whole chicken which will take 30 mins to cook. Not the best for crispy chips as they will not turn out the way you want them - crispy on the outside. I notice that lot of smoke emits whenever I airfry pork belly. In terms of cleaning the basket, you’ll need some patience to scrub the bits stuck in between. Otherwise a fairly functional product

Purchased in for $500.

Love it! Use it daily

published

I was skeptical at first. I thought it might be another gimmick in my kitchen I hardly use. However I use this daily. It’s awesome to cook a small batch of food and reheats in seconds. I did find it a little small. When I upgrade I will buy the bigger size.

Great product, but difficult to clean

published

Had mine for over 2 years and have never deep fried anything since. I use it alot; just lightly toss the food with oil before putting in the airfryer. If the food is crumbed, I dont use oil. The only room for improvement would be to make it easier to clean. Grease accumulates in the groves and can only be removed by soaking in boiling water and detergent every now. Apart from that, wouldnt live without it.

What did we do before they invented these?

published

Strolling through a retailer that sells just about everything and I saw this kitchen utensil that I hear so much about. It's on SPECIAL and I thought don't need another appliance but let's see what everyone is raving about. Needless to say- We all Love this machine.. It just makes cooking things like savoury finger food, chips, pies, fish fingers, even scones so easy and quick. No more turning on a big Oven for something small as it is just not economically viable anymore with the Phillips Airfryer. Easy to clean, easy to use, easy to pack away and..... get out again because we do. Great buy.

Purchased in at Harvey Norman Retail Stores - Electronics for $150.

Essential piece of kitchen equipment

published

I’ve been after an airfryer for about a year now and finally got the original Philips two weeks ago. It’s changed the way I cook chicken, veggies and even bacon. There’s a lot less mess than pan frying and the obvious health benefits (draws the fat out of the bacon and drains it under the basket). It does the same job as the digital fryer, with less frills and most importantly, the drawer is very smooth.

Purchased in at Appliances Online for $399.

Perfect

published

I find it excellent! Quick and EASY TO CLEAN. You just put the basket in the dishwasher on pot wash and it comes out clean and ready to use again. I don't even unclip the base, it all goes in as it comes out of the Air Fryer. I am not cleaning the element, do you unscrew the sides of your over and deep clean it much? All these negative reviews about cleaning seem a bit OTT. I use mine at lease 4 times a week, steak, chicken sausages, everything is easy as. Chips take 12 minutes and are crunchy and cooked to perfection. The rack that is an extra is really good for cooking 2 things at once. Philips is the only brand I would consider. Others take way too long and you could just use your oven. Happy Air Frying Everyone!

Bloody great

published

We are a family of 6. This gets used everyday, multiple times. Doesn't heat the house like your oven and is so fast. It turns frozen pizza, pies, quiche and old breadrolls into gourmet versions. So many uses. Tips - don't use more than a spray of oil to avoid smoke smoke. If the food is frozen kick off at a lower temp before cranking it up to avoid burning the food. Very happy.

Definitely an overpriced cooking appliance and does not live up to the hype 120 character limit excludes explanation

published

Output using suggested cooking methodology does not compare with traditional cooking and clean up is far more than clean up of the same dish using traditional cooking methods
Price of the appliance is over rated

Cleaning is a nightmare

published

This airfryer cooks great. Cant fault the cooking and very useful if you have teens. The 1 star is for 2 reasons. The airfryer does not come with accessories. You must purchase extra accessories to cook various foods and the accessories are not cheap. For $500 I expect a few more accessories. No matter what you cook there is a sticky residue that is difficult to remove. The cleaning is very time consuming and it never feels thoroughly clean. I soak the parts. Would recommend anyone wanting a airfryer wait for a improved model or try a different brand .Overpriced.

Purchased in for $479.

Hello...
Everything was okey with my product until
I pulled out the basket while the airfryer was working... about 2 minutes earlier than the timer... since then, the timer does not ring anymore when it comes to the end... and the inside fan turns off 2 minutes sooner than the timer... How can I fix that? Why is it so? Did I rwcked the timer when I pulled it out 2 minutes sooner???
