Rated 5 out of 5 by sziko Seriously healthy yet tasty food and fun
We have only had this a couple of weeks and can honestly say it does exactly what it says on the box. Brilliant, crispy food in very short times, highly efficient, perfect for the two of us for low fat chips and just about anything else that you can fry.
So far we have done perfect, home made, chunky fries, fish fingers, chicken thighs, roast potatoes, mini jacket potatoes, wedges and best of all, steak, chips and grilled tomato all at once!!!
It's fun just experimenting and easy to clean.
One warning though if warming papadoms place a heat resistant weight on the top papadom to stop them taking off into the grill!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by truffs great roast potatoes
i bought this as i hated the smell of cooking fries with oil in a deep fat fryer,
this is the best thing in tecno for a long time and works,
i use 1 cal spray for fresh chips and for roast potatoes.
cooks chicken and fish, you can make cakes in this as well.
easy cleaned and tray can go in the dishwasher.
would highly recommend this.
I am about to buy 1 for my 96year old father as cooking with oil adn the oven is a accident waiting to happen,
this means he can have the things he likes, and it a very healthy option with the great taste.
only thing i wish the timer dial hadlarger digits for poorly sighted will find it hard to see.

Rated 4 out of 5 by renifos Really pleased with my purchase
I wanted one of these for some time and also looked at similar products. I eventually decided on the Philips after reading lots of reviews and looking at the appliances in the shop.I did not want a paddle inside the basket, I just wanted an alternative to a deep fat fryer. It also takes up much less room than the competitors and looks very nice in black. I find the basket hard to clean and think it's a bad design. I therefore bought the grill pan accessory in Germany as it is hard to get anywhere in the UK. Apart from that, it's really easy to use, takes only half the time of the oven and ideal for small families. I wish I would have bought the larger one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ellie This product lives up to its promise
Bought the airfryer to replace a conventional deep fat fryer. Was a little sceptical as it is such a new concept but thought we should give it a go. In fairness, we have only used the airfryer for chips, but it was bought for that purpose. It took two tries to get the chips exactly as we like them but now its easy peasy. Brilliant results from this airfryer - chips golden brown and crisp on the outside and soft and fluffy in the middle, with the bonus that the airfryer is easy to clean (unlike the deep fat fryer). Would definitely recommend the airfryer and in fact have already sung the praises of it to friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tess A fantastic product with impressive health value
I purchased the air fryer because my husband loves chips but had been advised to reduce his fat intake. He was about to switch reluctantly to boiled potatoes only, when Philips sent us details of the air fryer.
The chips are just fantastic - dry, crispy and delicious. The taste far exceeds anything from a conventional fryer. It is rare that a product of such quality and innovation arrives on the market - the fact that it has enormouse health gains is a great plus.
Two small points though - the inner basket sometimes falls out unexpectedly so an improved catch would be worth considering. Also the rubber feet stick so well to the surface that they sometimes get left behiond when the fryer is lifted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nickf Healthy chips and much more
We have had our Philips Air Fryer for about a month now, and have cooked a number of things in it ... All with excellent results using no more than a couple of teaspoons of oil.
Frozen or fresh, the results have been very good ... Baked items like samosas or bhajis were hot and crisp, fish works very well, and even left over new potatoes can be perked up with a little spice.
Our favourite though is spiced sweet potato chips ... Ready in about 20 minutes ... Delicious and healthy.
Very easy to clean, a quick soak, wipe out and dishwasher will do the trick.
This is the perfect size for up to four people for chips ... Portion sizes might seem a little mean if you try and cook for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Majen Better than we might have imagined
Every time we cook it's an experiment, now down to just two small teaspoons of fat for chips, also found the bigger the chip size the better the outcome. The recipe book does not cover some staples e.g steak 10 mins, as easy as duck breast and pork steaks, same timings, perfectly cooked. Also we use it for sausages, pierced to let fat flow out of them, they taste just as good. These ideas came from the Internet.
Best yet was scotch eggs, with the same as any other recipe: boiled egg, sausage meat then breadcrumbs. The crust is created with a very little fat added to the mixture which is then pressed onto the sausage meat and rolled to reduce crumbs. We keep reducing fat on all the recipes, although the books say 1 tablespoon max.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Peanuts Nothing but praise.
Having now used this product for over a month I cannot find any fault with it at all.
The versitility of it only increases with use and increased knowledge of its abilities.
The first advantage of no/low oil usage (healthy cooking) is followed by many more:- variable temperature control; timer control; more than one item cookable at the same time; multi item/multi method cooking, not just frying; easy cleaning.
As well as this a comprehensive and informative manual is included and there are excellent on-line resources.
Admittedly it is heavy but this is an indication of its 'build quality'.
