Philips AirFryer

The Philips AirFryer is a revolutionary kitchen appliance that uses superheated air to fry food giving that fatty taste – but without the oil (mostly, more on that later…).

The Airfryer uses Rapid Air Technology to cook the kind of meals that traditionally would have been done with a deep fat fryer. The machine uses a grill and a fan to blast very hot air around food at high speeds. The air reaches temperatures up to 200 degreesC around the food inside – browning with up to 80% less fat. This browning and crisping process where the food is fried, roasted, toasted or baked is known scientifically as the Maillard effect.

The food is placed in a large (700g capacity) slide out tray – this can be a mixture of different types, chicken and chips for example. The tray is slid back into the AirFryer and 12 minutes later the meal is ready. The Airfryer can be used for meats and fish and even has the ability to bake cakes. And in case you are concerned about cooking different types of food together there is a Food Separator accessory to stop your chicken nuggets and fish ending up as a Fillet-O-Nugget.

The problems with the safety of traditional deep fat frying are also largely removed by the Airfryer. The days of the huge vat of oil reaching Chernobyl like temperatures ready to ignite your house or burn little children or pets are long gone – the Airfryer is self-contained and has very little oil.

However, it is acknowledged that you will need to add a little oil to certain types of food to get that freshly fried taste – so for chips you will need to add half a tablespoon of oil. Not really a significant amount compared with traditional frying, and a large reduction in the fat content of the finished article.

Verdict

The Philips HD9220/20 Airfryer is most definitely a large step in the right direction for the health and safety conscious amongst us. But do not forget you are still going to need a little oil to satisfy the desire for that fried food taste – particularly with chips.
