It is certainly healthier as you use the rapid air technology to make your food to make it crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside. Cooking meals with up to 80% less fat then a conventional fryer it makes whipping up tasty meals a breeze.

There is no need for smelly kitchens and messy clean up with an Air fryer. The gadget is easy to clean, safe and economical for daily use making it really suitable for my two little junior chefs to operate.


The newly launched (2100W) Philips Avance XL Airfryer has made cooking a breeze for me. With a 1.2 kg capacity it is 50% bigger then the previous model. It is 5X the size of the old model and is capable to feed up to 5 people which is just nice for our family of 5. You can even put a 7 inch cake tin inside to bake a cake!! ( More on that in the next post)

Available in black or white this nifty kitchen gadget is capable of the following.

– Fast cooking speed ( It only takes 18 minutes to cook 750g of fries which is 30% faster then traditional cooking methods)

– It has a touch sensitive full digital timer and control screen.

Doesn’t it look neat? There is no need for so many different kitchen gadgets which will clutter up your counter top. This is certainly a PLUS in our modern homes where space is a constrain. At $539 b/f discount it is certainly a gadget which one should consider getting for the kitchen.

Here is how the chips turned out after baking it. I placed a sheet of baking paper under the carrot strips to prevent the marinate from flowing from the basket to the bottom of the drawer during the cooking process. This makes it easier to clean up after cooking.
