Air Fryers Buying Guide
Our buying guide will explain which type of air fryer would suit you most, how much you can expect to pay for one, and which features are worth looking out for.
Great for small things
It fries small things well but not larger things.
I usually use it for chips or chicken nuggets or chicken strips.
Its not very easy to clean properly, i use a dishwasher and it takes a few goes to clean it well.
Purchased in July 2015 at It was a gift..
More than expected , love it
Bought this on sale $299 and have been experimenting throughout the week
Roast veggies crisp under 30 minutes
Wedges amazing and 15 minutes
Cant wait to try more but super impressed , easy to use and cleaning is simple.
Only criticism is instruction book doesn’t really have any startup information but easy to find on the net
This is the best!
Purchased in July 2019 at Retravision for $299.00.
Philips..Expected Better Quality
I have had two HD9240s over 5 years. The first had display issues just outside the warranty period and required an $180 fix to replace the control module and power supply board. The second is 9 months out of warranty and have notice the draw runners are loosing its ball bearings. Poor design in incorporating bearing spacers which are effected by heat and disintegrate allowing the balls to fall off the runner. I have always had I high expectation of the brand name but sadly this has diminished after encountering these issues.

I've been deliberating whether to purchase an air fryer for over a year and decided to take the plunge when this was on sale. I definitely don't regret it as we use our air fryer everyday if not every second day. I would consider this a medium sized air fryer, perfect for a couple. It's brilliant for cooking frozen foods and we have cooked steak and pork belly in it. Efficient, quick and time saving! My only qualm would be that there is a slight oil smell which spreads but other than, no regrets in my purchase.
Time to look for a cheaper alternative
I use it frequently. 2 year warranty expiring in 2 days. Now it's changing the temperature and timer on its own. $300 for 2 years not good value for money.
Purchased in April 2016.
Owned this airfryer for more than a year and I’m still in love with it. Regret for not getting it earlier. The machine cooks meat and veggies perfectly. Absolutely great for people who don’t know how to cook. U will be amazed how quick the machine cooks. Bought one for my friend for Christmas present and she loves it too.
It is simply wonderful.
Highly satisfied. I have cooked six different meals which are nice and healthy. Really like this product and strongly recommend. Easy to use, great for cooking quickly when time poor. Healthier cooking with no oil and fat drips away. I use mine everyday.
The product does require care, so please use as recommended and wash it at least weekly if you cannot daily.
Perfect healthy option
Extremely satisfied. I cook chicken, lamb and steak oil free. Less cooking time. Time saver. Takes less space. If any one in keen in buying an airfryer I would recommend this. No regrets. No hassle in baking in the oven or having to wash frying pans. Makes life much easier
I love it.
The outcome of this is between fried and baked, but it doesn't need a single drop of oil and only takes ~30min for wings and fries. The size is perfect for 1-2 people.Baked sweet potatoes with this fryer take only for 30 mins . usually it takes for an hour in oven. Very practical to use and easy clean with washmashine.
Love the air fryer
I cannot believe it took me this long to get an air fryer. I rarely use my oven now. The best part, no need to preheat and clean up is so simple and quick. My family loves it!Love the air fryer. So nice to have a healthy great tasting meal in such short time & not heat up the kitchen doing so!
Initially I was not a big fan of any airfyer. I friend suggested and we decided to give it a now. It's now a every day use gadget for us. Can believe how much oil all these processed food contains. No need to add any further oil. Food taste almost the same.
I loved this product having bought a smaller one 3 years ago, last year I got the XL one and it works great. although I have to say it makes a some what of a noise when its on but nothing annoying overall. would defiantly recommend it to those whom love healthy eating as this product sucks out the fat when cooking.
Cant live without it!
I love my air frier! At first, I thought "I don't need anymore kitchen appliances" but after staying at my parents and using theirs. I realised that I could live without it! No more waiting for ovens to preheat! Fantastic when you have kids and you need chicken nuggets cooked now!
- Fast and convenient!!
- SIze is appropriate for 2 people
- Very easy to use
- Takes up a large portion of the kitchen bench
- Smokes with fatty food, from what I have heard from people with other brands, Philips XL is a bit notorious for this. So much so, that it will set off the fire alarm if I don't put the exhaust fan on. Even when I am cooking frozen nuggets.
- Hard to clean. Both the element and the basket.
- Not quite big enough to cook cakes or a roast. If I had my time again, I would have purchased the XXL.
Completely recommend getting an air frier and the bigger the better. You will use it more than you think!
Great Air Fryer
The price is a bit expensive but it is still ok as the quality is quite good, it air fry food very nicely, especially with chicken wings and fried fish, it makes life easier when you want to cook a meal
It’s like an oven actually but it’s more convenient cuz it is more convenient to take food in and out
philips air fryer
I have found my Philips air fryer fantastic. pork belly is delicious & crackle is the best. l also love to cook my salmon in the air fryer & chips are to die for. The grand kids love the chicken nuggets . Steak is also delicious cooked this way. Enjoy
The best airfryer!
I purchased this Phillips air fryer a year ago and I have been using it nearly everyday. Super easy to cook and keep it clean!!! I love it!
I normally cook chips, fish, steak etc perfectly crispy with very small amount of oil !!!I dont use any oil sometimes but still crispy.
I managed to lose weight and i feel healthy.
It was a bit expensive but its definitely worth it!!!
I highly reccomemd this product.
It is perfect
I am very satisfied with this product. It is very convenient. It is absolutely healthy way of cooking marinated meats and of course vegetables. It is fairly quick and very easy to use. It does not use a lot of electricity due to hot air cooking quickly. I recommend this product to all households.
Quick, easy and convenient
So good for cooking lots of different things from frozen chips, pies, to sausages, schnitzel, reheating KFC... With a newborn, don't really have much time to eat so this allows me to cook food fast. Though we have had the smoke alarm go off a few times, find a spot away from it when using.
Could be better
This is my second one of these as the first one had an electrical fault so had to take it back but this one so far seems to be working fine. It makes a whirling noise when it is on though. I think it does a decent job of cooking the food although haven't tried to put anything big in it yet. Everything seems to heat/cook evenly.
sometime ,when I just need to cook few food , like several Fried prawn , I don't want to open oven . I think it is a waste of electricity , so I use the airfryer . Easy and Efficient .
It is a good help in my kitchen .
