Philips HD9220/28 Review
Philips is the leading brand among air fryers – the “original” consumer air fryer model. Each Philips Airfryer uses Rapid Air technology, a type of convection heating system that uses hot, moving air currents to cook food quickly. The basket of the Philips Airfryer features the patented “starfish design,” which allows for additional air circulation.

Don’t Forget These
What Comes in the Box
When you receive your Philips air fryer, the packaging will include:
- The air fryer
- Air fryer pan
- Air fryer basket
- Quick start guide
- Product user/owner manual
- A recipe booklet featuring over 150 recipes
You may also purchase accessories for your Philips Airfryer, including a grilling insert, stainless steel rack, and kabob skewers.
Weight, Size & Appearance
The Philips air fryer weighs just over 16 pounds (just over 7 kilograms) and has dimensions of 11.3 inches by 12.4 inches by 15.1 inches (287 millimeters by 315 millimeters by 384 millimeters).
The material of the appliance’s main body is a sleek black, white, or silver plastic, so chosen to match any kitchen decor. You may want to proudly display this air fryer on your countertop, rather than hiding it away when not in use.
Cooking Capacity & Basket
The cooking capacity of this air fryer is 3 quarts. The basket has a “MAX” indication to alert you to the maximum amount of food it can hold. The square shape of the basket allows for a higher capacity than similar air fryers with round baskets.
What does the capacity mean to you? The Philips Airfryer can hold up to 800 grams (1.75 pounds) of French fries. However, the manufacturer recommends using only 500 grams of fries or other snacks to achieve optimal results. If filled with 500 grams, shake the basket once during the cooking process; if cooking more, shake two to three times for even cooking. Some foods, such as filled dough, stuffed vegetables, or meats, will do best if placed in a single layer at the bottom of the basket.
Both the pan and cooking basket sport a non-stick surface for easy cleanup, and are dishwasher safe.
You can also use a variety of accessories with your Philips Airfryer. An accessories kit is available directly from the manufacturer. You may also use any small glass, ceramic, metal, or silicone baking dishes, as well as silicone or paper cupcake wrappers. Place these accessories inside the basket, and make sure room is available on all sides for air circulation. Recommended sizes for baking dishes are 6.3 inches (13 centimeters) or less in width, and 2.4 inches (6 centimeters) or less in height.
