My Thoughts on the Philips Air Fryer
I’ve had this airfryer for nearly a month now, and I think that’s ample time and enough usage to be able to give some in depth remarks about this unit. I will admit this is my first air fryer, so I will not really compare it to other models when it comes to performance.
To start, I got around to choosing this particular model after reading a buying guide where I read air fryer reviews. This Philips air fryer definitely is a bit more expensive than the others out there, but I’m not in the market for a machine that I will have to replace in a year or two. I also didn’t want to get one that was lacking certain features that all the other ones have.
I mainly used this unit to cook frozen goods like french fries and other small frozen foods. It definitely did the job well, and dare I say it was better than traditional frying, and leaps and bounds above using a conventional oven.
The overall build of the unit feels very solid, and is actually quite easy to clean. Between deep frying and air frying, the amount of cleaning isn’t even close to being the same. In terms of smell, nothing worse than normal cooking.
One of the only cons I can think of is the overall size. While I do like that it has a small footprint since our counter-top has limited real estate, I still can’t help but feel like it’s really only intended for snack type food. It just isn’t quite big enough to be cooking large amounts of food.
Overall, I think it’s a great machine, and it actually serves a lot of purposes for what I typically enjoy eating. Outside of the frozen foods I was also able to whip up some chicken wings that were to die for.
