I would give it a 3.5 stars, due to the 'international' instructions which are very basic diagrams.
Don't expect recipe books here, there's none. The recycled paper guide for cooking times is a joke.
The cooker is my very first experience with an air fryer, and I was looking for a cheaper one around $50 - 80 area. Due to the current Covid, there is little stock to choose from, so I ended up with this one for BIG W on discount price of $170 from $190. It was it or nothing but wait for more stock from China, which has now arrived in the lower pr...ice ranges and look the same. A similar capacity unit is now available for $49 normal price from the local Woolworths currently. Even with the Philips name, it is not worth that price as the construction is basic generic. The body is made from the cheaper ABS plastic that disintegrates over time and I expect this unit is no different. It is worth noting that it has a quoted capacity of 800 grams and I guess that may be around 1.5 litre's. As to performance, it does what is said on the box. The negatives come down to 3 points.
Purchased in June 2020 at Big W for $170.00.
Disappointing that there is no recipe book or proper instruction book
I bought my first time ever air fryer just before Easter. I have cooked on it over the weekend and found it to be an excellent product. The only disappointing part was the lack of instructions and no recipe book (even basic one). I would have thought the product should have at least come with both of these.
Purchased in April 2020 at Big W for $200.00.

Quick and easy
I have to say I was super surprised at how quick and well this works. Being super skeptical, I attempted everything in it except cake. Fabulous! No oil! LOVE IT!
But for quick kids dinner when its been that type of day I just can not fault it. Saved my sanity a few times.
Purchased in April 2018 at The Good Guys for $95.00.

Hi, I love my HD9216 air fryer but the handle on the basket has broken and I can't seem to find where to purchase a replacement. Could you pls advise?
