Summary: First off I would like to start by saying I did tons of research and watched tons of videos on this product before I made this purchase. I was very excited to get it.....then I used it :( . Most of the stuff you are going to watch online is from Europe, Australia, and Asia. It looks like you can fit a lot of food in it. The reason is because their baskets overseas are bigger then the ones released in the US.
Feeling taken advantage of. EXPENSIVE conventional oven

Summary: Like one of the previous users stated this is not a FRYER by ANY means. This is a shady and over priced mini convection oven and if you look at a the recopies… you are STILL adding oil. Maybe you’re not saturating it in oil as you would in a deep fryer but my convection oven is just as good if not better. I have given it a fair chance… making fries, chicken wings, catfish, ground beef and o few other things.
Summary: I loved fried food but worry about my weight so when I heard this way selling off the shelves in Japan I rushed to get one to try out. Searched long to find something that cooked up well. Eggplant and frozen burritos but you have to par cook the burritos to defrost before cooking. I would not recommend this to anyone. This was a complete waste of my money, this is my first review ever and it is to warn others not to purchase this item.
Summary: I was given a Philips airfryer as a gift, and could not return it fast enough. The food comes out just about as crispy as if you were to bake it in the oven (not very), it is an absolute beast in terms of countertop/storage space, and on top of all of that, it's a nightmare to clean. With the amount of time it takes to clean the basket, I could have eaten something deliciously deep-fried, worked it off on the elliptical, and STILL had time to spare.
Summary: I researched a lot in the internet, so far we have two "air fryer" in the market: t-fal Actifry (last model is 2in1 - FYV9601) and philips Airfry (last model is the XL - don't have the code but the one in this add isn't the XL) People that tried both liked more the quality of the Airfry because they claimed the Actifry presented issues with the lid and other plastic part I don't recall that can break.
Summary: I bought one of these, Im really not too happy with it, chips, arnt chips anymore, they come out with a thick skin around them. They are very dry, and if you dont stir them, the top ones are burnt, and the lower ones arent cooked. If I was you I would buy the type that are constantly moving, at least they get the chance to cook all over.
Summary: I returned my actifryer, the thing as a whole is huge, but when I looked at the basket for cooking it was not big enough,and we are a family of 3. I could only see that you could cook chips and roast potatoes, and even though I am sure they would taste great its cheaper to use the oven! Although this is a great idea, I think the design needs improving to allow for more cooking space!!
