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.

It works but it's nothing special
This air fryer works just fine, in fact perfect. It's never broken or had problems. But it's not 5 stars because it's not special. It doesn't add anything new and it's the same as others. The price was good and the air fryer works. I recommend it to anybody who is looking for something simple.
Purchased in December 2019 at Harvey Norman Online for $150.00.
Questions & Answers
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? BTW, I thought I had ordered one online at the www.parts.philips.com.au site, only to find the whole thing was a scam and I am $55 out-of-pocket. Not sure if you guys know about this? Anyway, would love to legitimately purchase a replacement if you can help pls? Thanks so much ;)
