Coating Disintegrates on Catch tray after 2+ yrs
My coating is coming off after 2+ years. I did read a review where with one client it happened after one week. I wonder if it is contaminating my food with this breakdown. For a quality product this should not happen. I rang Phillips and they said it is safe and you can buy a spare part. I cannot trust what they say. If Phillips prides itself on quality products which I doubt after there sleep apnea issue then you would have to doubt.
We are excited when buy products in good faith from these multinationals which can come back at you with a vengeance. Not happy Jan!

Bulky, Expensive, and Hard to Clean
We bought this to replace a t-fal actify which we can't find anymore, which lasted us for 8 years and various replacement parts that wore out.
This airfryer compared to the actrify:
1. Big, bulky, loud, and doesn't cook enough chips at a time.
2. No rotation / circulation -- you have to manually shift the chips around so they cook evenly.
3. Absolutely awful to clean -- Lots of hard-to clean areas inside the cooking basket / drawer that grease builds up on
4. Fragile and complicated -- the clunky cooking drawer was dropped and the handle broke -- now the entire machine is worthless. We were using it regularly for the kids chips, but neither of us was disappointed that it broke.

Bubbling and Peeling. Else Perfect Airfryer
Had the unit since 9/2020 and loving it.
It has been cleaned well with a non-abrasive sponge.
The disappointment came a few days ago I noticed the bottom pan's coating had a few bubbles and it then peeled off. Those tiny white spots are the outcome after the black coating came off.
On the good side, it cooks perfectly well and shorten the cooking time.
It is an alternative to the stove/microwave for me.

Great but fading issues on dial
It makes my life so easy as I can cook lots of different things including meats.
The only the problem is that the numbers on dial has been fading so quickly.

No oil needed
This airfryer has helped me maintain a healthy lifestyle. I have used this air fryer for all types of meals prepared including savoury snacks, fish and chips. It fries the food in approximately 10-20 minutes. Only problem I faced so far is that the drawer can be sometimes hard to shut and and I accidently dropped it because the handle is a bit hard to grip. Can be cleaned easily and can use a second tier for cooking two types of food.

Great Airfryer overall, some room for improvement
Does its job well. The only complaint we have is that the drawer compartment is slightly flimsy and sometimes doesn't close flush to the body.
I find the internals easy to clean, and the overall quality and performance good.

1 week in and having timer issues
Have only purchased 10 days ago and am a little concerned. The machine turns off before the timer has finished. The machine and the timer don't appear to be in sync. For e.g.: The timer may still have 5 mins to go and the machine finishes cooking and all i can hear is the remaining ticking of the timer until it finishes. I am feeling very worried that this could potentially be a safety hazard.

Love my air fryer!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! I love our air fryer, it’s the best appliance I have ever brought. It cooks so much faster than putting your food in a normal oven. Has last us 5 years and still going strong!! Easy to clean.
Purchased in January 2015 at The Good Guys for $150.00.
I am very satisfied with this philips airfrier due to nice colour and big enough to coom in once for family and nice design
Very good and handy for frozen food and fried food
Also easy to clean because the part of this airfrier can be taken out and cleaned individually

Love this product
This product is simple to operate and makes cleaning after cooking a breeze. I use my air fryer to cook things I would normally use my micro wave and conventional oven for. The difference from using a microwave is how crispy the finished food is as well as the colour the food is left with, just the same as if it was fried only with less fat. Fish and chips are just like buying then from a restaurant. I love that the kitchen is not heated up as it is when using a conventional oven. The Phillips Airfryer XXL can also grill, bake and roast foods i...n less time then using other appliances. I also purchased a few accessories to help me convert to this cooker rather then use my oven (and extra electricity) such as the silicon muffin cups. It makes great cup cakes in 18 mins. You can download an Airfryer app which gives you step by step instructions for a variety of recipes. The benefits of this product are endless. Cons: My only downside is the size of this product, it takes up a bit of bench space however as it is nearly replacing my oven and microwave for a lot of my cooking it is worth it.

This is the first Air-fryer I have ever owned but I must say it is simply amazing, it cooks chips amazingly and I am so lucky to own a product like this, I highly recommend buying this product. It does the job amazingly and is so easy to clean

Love it! Still going very well with regular use.
I always enjoy a good meal made with this air fryer. We use it mostly for reheating or defrosting. Given that my family and I are fairly busy, we tend to be short on time so not having to heat up an oven for 10 minutes is excellent. It's also great to not be experiencing the oilyness but still get a nice crunch. We have always found it very easy to use and clean. Certainly a regularly used appliance in our house and well worth buying.

Questions & Answers
My airfryer is approx 12 months old, I'm not happy with the timer numbers rubbing of, but now the Philips name is starting to break as well, makes it look old and cheap.....not good in an expensive product.
I have same issue...I contacted them, and they said I should take it to the service centre to fix the rubbed timer. I asked them if they can send some stickers to put but they don't think that's good idea...
I would print out lots of stickers, and send them to the customers if I was the staff of Phillips....
Best is to contact their customer care support. Maybe they can arrange for something.
I'm not happy, and would like it fixed.... shouldn't have a product where timer and name come off......did you take it to the service centre
