Summary: So disappointed. Was so excited to get this as a gift and then... What a bummer. #1 it's huge outside, but the cooking compartment itself is really small. #2 fried food does NOT taste like fried food, like they advertise. My potstickers turned out like they've been dried in air, not fried w/ oil. #3 it's really hard to clean. This one's definitely going back.
Summary: Even though Philips claims they are targeting the health conscious consumer with this expensive product, yet they coated it with cheap and toxic Teflon instead of using a more advanced healthier coating easily available in today's new technology. Here are the AirFryer components for the truly health minded people out there: Outer skin: Plastic (PP) Pan: Aluminized steel Basket : Aluminized steel Basket mesh coating: PTFE coating = Teflon The U.S.
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.
