Philips Air Fryer XL £159

This is a fantastic piece of kit .

We have the old one for years and it has never missed a beat . This seems to be the newest version.

Just fancied updating as it has been so good .

It is the XL size which is the one to go for imo.

Highly recommend for anyone who might be on the fence .

Model number is HD9260/91

Ordered... I have the standard digital one years but I thought it was dead a few weeks ago after cleaning it and the bottom is partly melted after getting too close to the hob one time so I might as well just update

Finally took the plunge on one of these. Kitchen real estate is becoming scarce in my house tbh, herself won't be impressed prob, but until she starts doing the cooking, the kitchen is my responsibility.

Once you start using it , you'll wonder how you ever coped without one .

My missus was sceptical at first , now the oven is mostly reduntant with the airfryer

What kind of stuff do you normally cook? We are thinking of getting one, but we use the pan and oven a lot.

Chicken, veg, breakfast, burgers, fries, anything you can think of really, mine gets used at least 4 days a week....

The pan only gets used for eggs these days.

I have the XL version. Is it worthwhile upgrading to the XXL version?

xxl little bigger basket, wider and taller. Don't need to preheat it while you do with the xl, nicer controls, not really sure what else.

Can have a look at this:

I personally wouldn't upgrade if I had the smaller one, unless you are having space limitations and it's annoying. They are fairly similar.

Just looking abit further into the size aspect.

This is the origianl machine I bought . Still for sale at £250


https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1


My older one holds 3 litres , the newer one (about same diminsions) hold 7 litres.

That is a big upgrade in cappacity and I found the original plenty adequate for a family.

Its mega for chips.

I always peel and chop the spuds, give them a really good wash, dry them in a tea towel, then put into a pyrex dish with some olive oil, cover with cliing film, then bung in the microwave for 5/6 minutes.
They'll come out softish, spread them out on a baking tray and let cool.

then bung them in the airfryer for super crispy, fluffy chips with those delicious edgy bits.

It's alot I know, but the only extra step is the microwave/cooling piece
