This is a review of the Phillips AirFryer, as you can see here. It comes with a little cookbook which gives you ideas of what you can do. Here we have crispy potato cubes, some fried potato slices with garlic, some feta triangles, some ricotta balls with basil, mini frankfurters and pastry, mini peppers with goat cheese, and just some other stuff, like roasted asian chicken wings.
It also comes with a quick start guide as you can see here. On the front it shows you a quick example of what to do when cooking fries. On the back it has a bit more information. So down here we have thin frozen fries, potato wedges, potato cubes. We have some steak, hamburgers, sausage rolls, drumsticks, and chicken breast. Here we have the min and maximum amount of grams that you should do, and here is the temperature. For instance with thin frozen fries, it’s 200 degrees Celsius. With steak, it’s 180 degrees celsius. It also has the time in which you should cook it, and also it tells you if you need to shake halfway or not. Along here you have extra information. So with the fresh fries and the potato wedges, you have to add half a teaspoon of oil. With the rest they don’t need any oil. So, that’s fine.
Okay. So we just open this up. You have to push the button down here. It doesn’t actually come out quite easily. It may do once you’ve used it for a while. It may pop out a bit more smoothly, but this is new so for me it’s quite hard to get out. This is the container you put all of your ingredients in, and you have a splitter here if you want to separate food which is very easy to take out. When you put this in, you don’t need to press the button again. Be careful not to jam your thumb. I’ve done that once and it wasn’t so pleasant.
Anyway, just for an example, hopefully this goes well. I’m going to cook some potato wedges. So, one could do. Go ahead and take this out. Put these in. They’re not the best cut. Oh well. As I’m doing potato wedges, I will need to add a bit of oil. If I just show you, here we have the temperature. At the moment it’s on 80 degrees. With potato wedges I want it on 180. Now with wedges, they take between 18 or 21 minutes. You just slide this around. I’ll put it on 18, and then you need to plus three minutes if you want it to warm up.
If you’ve already just cooked things out of it, you don’t need to add the extra three minutes. If you haven’t cooked anything in a while and it’s all cold, then you want to add the extra 3 minutes for the preheat time. I’m not sure if you can hear but there’s a ticking sound. That’s the timer going. Halfway through, you want to take it out, give it a little shake, and then put it back in.
Okay, it’s roughly about halfway, so just take it out. There you go. Give it a little shake. Put it back in.
Okay, so it’s just finished, and it’s actually switched itself off. So hopefully we have some good results. It’s rather hard. There you go, so there’s the wedges. They’re very crispy. OW! Very hot as well. Let’s just hope they’re nice. Yeah, very nice. They’re definitely hot and cooked. And we had some good results.
