Cooking these days is not just about food; it is also now about being healthy. And in this ever-evolving world, an air fryer is one of the heaven sent appliances that we can have. One of the best models for an air fryer is the Philips (HD9220/26) AirFryer with Rapid Air Technology. Does this model do us good? Let’s find out in this short review.
The Airfryer is 15.1 inches tall and 11.2 inches wide. The unit’s body is made of plastic that weighs 15.4 lbs. The appliance can cook up to 28 ounces of food, which is fair. If you’re unsure how much the food you’re cooking is, don’t fret! Inside the appliance is a marker that tells the max amount of space the food could occupy.
This appliance comes in black and silver, which makes it look sleek and classy. It also has signal lights that tell when the food is already done. On the upper left side of the appliance are some tips on how long foods cook. Considering all of these, Philips (HD9220/26) AirFryer is at 5/5 at this category.
If you’re itching to use your Philips Airfryer after purchase, you might need to hit the pause button for a while. For starters, the inside pot only has a food basket, so you would need to purchase an additional fry/grill pan or a rack, if your cooking needs such. But if not, feel free to just dump the food you’ll cook!
To compensate for the added materials, included with the brand new unit is a user manual and a free recipe book. Because of the need to buy additionals, Philips Airfryer sits at 4/5 for this category.
Philips Airfryer gives you a lot when cooking. While its knob-liked (that needs to be turned) controls, such as the integrated timer and temperature control, are manual, it has ready signal and auto shut-off30-minute timer with ready signal and auto shut-off. So if your cooking were done, it would simply turn itself off. Cooking time could be up to 30 minutes while the fully adjustable temperature control allows you to pre-set up to 390°F.
This unit boasts of its Rapid Air Technology, which circulates hot air around the metal food basket with speed and precision for perfect results. The best part of this is that because of the Rapid Air Technology, only a tablespoon (or less) of oil is needed to cook! Now this is what healthy is being about! Also, its starfish design ensures your favorite foods cook evenly.
Furthermore, this appliance is not only good for frying, baking and grilling are welcome, too! Overall, noting its Rapid Air Technology that eliminates the need for too much oil and the variety of foods that it can cook alongside the control it gives, Philips Airfryer’s performance is at 5/5.
It is given that the Airfryer could cut cooking time, but did you know that it could also help with the cleaning part? Yes! This Airfryer is dishwasher-friendly. Its removable nonstick-coated drawer and the food basket are dishwasher safe for a quick and easy clean up. Just pull these and place in your dishwasher, and voila! Cleaning is done! Because we all are too tired to clean, this dishwasher-friendly feature makes it 5/5.
Certainly you can sense my enthusiasm towards this appliance, and I can’t wait to get a hand to one. Apart from the need to buy additional materials, Philips (HD9220/26) AirFryer is the air fryer to have given its appealing design, good performance, and easy-to-clean feature!
