A high-priced mini convection oven. Questionable marketing by Philips.

Alex Green "alx779", Amazon

  • Summary: First things first. This is not a fryer but a mini convection oven and it performs similarly to other convection ovens, majority of which are far more versatile and are selling for less. I got mine as a gift. It is the version that sells in Canada and it does not come with food separator or baking dish. With retail price over $200, you'd expect these things to be included. How well does it perform? It makes decent baked fries in about 20-25 mins.

A Small, Efficient Convection Oven

IanG "Ian", Amazon
14 December 2013
  • Summary: Potatoes cooked from scratch in this machine come out greaseless, yes, but dry & more like roasted potatoes than french fries. Lash on the ketchup, and they seem OK, I guess. Frozen fries fare better, but they have been deep-fried already, so there is no calorie savings there. Doughnuts came out looking like bagels, and were too dry to eat. This appliance cooks and dries your food. It works the way a convection oven works, with perhaps more intense air movement.

Sounds good but not very practical

  • Summary: I was very disappointed to read in the instruction manual that I should use frozen, pre-prepared fries in the AirFryer. This is certainly not what I expected.
  • Cons: big, takes up a lot of counter space or storage space, recommeded to use frozen packaged food

This was just not for me

Subee, philips-store.com

  • Summary: Found it very nicely designed and the basket size very large. Tried many items and seemed to be hit or miss as to whether the item I tried to cook was crisp or soggy. The timer sometimes would not stop on the appropriate number setting and there is no way to clear it once it is set. Was not too happy that the basket did not have a lock so it could be opened anytime to check. Might have liked it with more recipes. Could not find additional recipes online either.

Not quite what it's cracked up to be

  • Summary: I bought this because I loved the concept, the taste of fried chips but with less fat, what could be better?! In reality, it works very well, it cooks evenly, but not as quickly as the book says, it's no quicker than a conventional oven, certainly for chips.. They come out really crispy, exactly as described, but they are dry and tasteless, so the addition of lots of salt, vinegar, mayo and ketchup was required.

Too bulky

  • Summary: Too bulky for my liking. Takes up a lot of space in the cupboard but from a health point of view it's good. Maybe I need to check my settings but my chips hardly turn out nice...therefore giving this a lowly 2.

  • Summary: i got the airfryer because i wanted to eat more healthly, it has worked as we dont like the chips so we tend not to have them, they are very dry you may as well cook them in the oven, it is a clean way of cooking there is no smell , had i tried before i buy i would have not bought the air fryer

Looks good.

  • Summary: My actifry broke and I replaced it with the Airfryer. Don't know if I am doing anything wrong but my chips are not turning out tasty at all. At the moment I am disappointed, but I read loads of reviews before buying it and they were all complimentary, which made me decide to buy the Airfryer. I shall keep trying and hopefully I will get it right and be singing its praises along with everyone else.
  • Pros: doesn't take up too much room on the worktop.
  • Cons: takes a while to get used to.
