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.

Hi Michael. Thanks for sharing your experience with us here. We're glad to hear that your Airfryer cooks well. But it's unfortunate to hear that it's difficult to cook with larger things. For the cleaning we can recommend you to follow this link below. You'll find instructions on cleaning the inside of your Airfryer. Hopefully this will help you. https://www.philips.com.au/c-f/XC000012903/how-to-clean-the-insideheating-element-of-my-philips-airfryer The Philips Australia Team

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!

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.

Great Purchase

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.

Hello Tracey, thank you for sharing your positive and enthusiastic review about the Avance Collection AirFryer here! We are happy to hear you are also happy with your purchase, as well as being able to cook up some delicious dishes. For the oil, we recommend removing the access while using the appliance, so that the smell will be less. Hopefully, this will help. Enjoy and have a great week! Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

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.

Hi there, Thanks for reaching out to us about this and for bringing this to our attention. We can imagine this is not at all convenient and we'd like to look into this. Would you mind contacting our colleagues at 1300 363 391? If the unit is still in warranty, then they should be able to help you out still. Or at least help you with troubleshooting tips. Kind regards, The Philips Australia team

Great product

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.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us and we hope that you'll enjoy many more tasty dishes made with the Airfryer! Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

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.

Hey there, Tan. Many thanks for letting us know how much you love your Airfryer! We're aiming to make lives healthier and easier, so we're glad to hear this has been the case for you. Happy frying! Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

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.

Works wonders

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.

Hey there, thanks for taking the time to share your experiences here. Cool to see you've upgraded your Airfryer as well! :) We're happy to hear you've been able to cook healthy and tasty dishes thanks to your Airfryer. Happy frying! Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

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!

Pros:
- Fast and convenient!!
- Stylish
- SIze is appropriate for 2 people
- Very easy to use

Cons
- 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!

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.

Ease, speed and good food: these are the things the Airfryer stands for! And being able to reheat KFC? That sounds delicious! Thanks for the kind words, Layne. Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

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.

how do I attach grill pan as the handle on the main pan is not detachable?
8 answers
Hello Paul, thank you for reaching out to us here. The grill pan can be used by putting it in the main basket after removing the detachable handle. The grill pan for this model is made separately, so we recommend checking the compatibility of this accessory with your model of AirFryer first. If you would like to know more about this, you can also reach out to our team by phone on the following number: 1300 363 391(Mondays to Saturdays: 7:00 am - 7:00 pm EST). We hope to hear from you soon. Kind regards, The Philips Australia TeamWell that does not help at all! I asked for help and you say "check compatibility" - you have my model number so you tell me what grill pan suits!Thanks for coming back to us, Paul. Upon having another look at our reply, we do agree that we could've looked into it for you, our apologies. We did check whether the grill pan is compatible with the HD9240/90, and it is not, unfortunately. So we're afraid the accessory cannot be attached to the basket, sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Let us know if you have any further questions, we'd be happy to answer them! Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team
