It is Air fryer Vs. Convection Oven, and we would give all the credits to the former appliance because it is portable, easy to clean and allows to cook prepare healthy food fast. We live in a world where people are prone to diseases like obesity. Obesity is a deadly disease because it causes other serious health risks such as heart diseases, diabetes, and arthritis. Opt for the modern appliance and reap the benefits! What are you waiting for? Bring home the modern Philips Viva! It is the best you can find in the market!
The oven was dead on arrival and the manufacturer / seller will not provide a return shipping prepaid label nor will they send another oven before receiving the DOA ( dead on arrival ) unit even with my credit card as a guarantee I will return the DOA Power Air Fryer Oven. All expenses, due to receiving a DOA unit, will be at my expense. The consumer probably has a 50-50 chance of experiencing problems such as mine and if that possibility causes one to be angry, they should stay clear of the Power Air Fryer Oven.
This recipe was absolutely delicious!! I just got my air fryer for Christmas and this is one of the first things I have tried. Not only was it easy but a recipe I am sure I will go back to many times. I served it to my husband and son and they both loved it. I had no left overs so now I need to find another Skinny taste recipe for dinner tonight.
I ordered my Power Air Fryer oven less than one month ago. I used it for the very first time and it shut off with my chicken half cooked. Ughh! That was very disappointing because I had to switch to the conventional oven to continue. It's disappointing that the unit simply stopped working the FIRST TIME, and that I am not the only one experiencing that problem. I'm currently packing the unit to send it back for a replacement. They said for my troubles, I would get a $50 card, but it seems you have to sign-up for a program to get it. That is not free, so I ditched that option. My experience with the unit and the process has not be great so far. So I would not recommend this product to anyone yet. I'll see how quick they address the problem. Luckily, I paid for the six-year full protection plan, seems I may really need it.
Most importantly, it WORKS. Are air fryer fries or chicken tenders identically to their oil-saturated brethren? No. They’re quite as crunchy and certain don’t have that gross but satisfying pop of grease. But they are noticeably crunchier and crispier than anything I’ve ever made in an oven. The air fryer also manages to texturize the outside of the food, while keeping the inside much more M-O-I-S-T than any other cooking method.
While buying yet another gadget for your kitchen might sound like a bit much, if it’s something that can make everything from breakfast potatoes to burgers to blueberry crumble, we’re thinking this is one hot trend to look into. Plus, it saves time, is healthier, and makes for easier cleanup. What’s not to love? These 25 air-fryer recipes show you how to faux-fry your way to healthier eats, from breakfast to dessert.
This is absolutely where air fryers come out on top. Deep fat frying is dangerous and resource-heavy, and takes a lot of effort. In stark contrast, air fryers are pretty light on effort, and don’t require any more resources than pan frying would. For just about the same effect, most homes benefit heavily from getting an air fryer, as opposed to setting up a frying station on the stove.
I had almost written off fried chickpeas as something that will never actually be good—that is, until I cooked them in the air fryer. The absence of the oil needed in the oven, deep-fat fryer, or skillet actually helps them get crispier because the air fryer’s heat dries out the exterior, while what little oil gets used has a chance to imbue the beans with a beautiful golden brown color. All crunch + no mess = I’m sold.
The Philips HD9641/96 Airfryer was the best air fryer we tested, but we’re not wild about it—or any other air fryer, for that matter. But of the six models we tested, the Philips HD9641/96 did the best job of cooking food evenly when the basket was filled to capacity. The interface on this model was straightforward and easy to use, too. The Philips HD9641/96 also had the smallest footprint of all the air fryers we tested.
“This is a great addition to your kitchen. I do think calling it a ‘fryer’ is a little misleading. I know that all these companies are calling them fryers, but really, this seems more like a countertop convection oven. It does everything your oven does but faster. It won’t heat up your entire house or kitchen, and it uses less energy. However, it also cooks in smaller quantities than your oven. It’s incredibly easy to use and clean. I’ve used it almost every day since I took it out of the box, and I’ve played around with cooking all sorts of different things in it. We are a family of four, and to cook a whole meal in it requires cooking things in shifts. If you’re doing part of a meal in it, it’s perfect, or if you were a couple or single person cooking for yourself, this would be a great alternative to using your big oven. I definitely am glad I purchased this air fryer and will continue to try cooking all sorts of new items in it.”
I bought this in February, 2018 and have used it less than 10 times. I was cooking chicken breasts on the wire racks last night and it turned off in the middle. I finished the chicken in my regular oven and let the airfryer cool down. It still wouldn't turn back on after cooling down. No lights/power or anything. I called Tristar's customer service this morning and was told that it's guaranteed for only 60 days. I wish I would have seen these reviews before I wasted my money.
This is so handy! Easy way to eat healthy without heating up a giant oven. I cut up a head of cauliflower and used a T of butter/or margarine with garlic powder/ onion powder and smoked paprika stir caul around in that, then sprinkle with italian bread crumbs and air fry. Put it in the preheated air fryer for 10-12 minutes, at 350, it was excellent. I cooked some saucy things in there, and the sauce drips to the bottom, but does not smoke and burn. VERY easy clean up. Made some homemade bean burgers, came out great in there. Also done a tone of fries, they come out great and I piled it full. Not heating up the whole oven for these items will be great in the summer when the air conditioning is on.
This past Spring I went to NYC for my cookbook tour, and I had the chance to eat at By Chloe, an excellent vegan fast-food chain that makes Air-Baked fries. I was HOOKED. These fries were light, crispy on the outside and potato-pillowy on the inside. I don’t know if By Chloe uses an Air Fryer, but I figured that whatever technique they do use couldn’t be far off, and I purchased this Phillips Air Fryer.
A few months back, I went to a kitchen appliance trade show and was surprised by the large number of manufacturers coming out with air fryers. "Enjoy great tasting fried food"[sic] reads the cover recipe booklet for Philip's new Airfryer XXL, a lovely sounding idea. With their focus on faux fried flavor, an aversion to fat, and an emphasis on convenience in the marketing from almost every manufacturer, the rise of air fryers felt like the second coming of the George Foreman Grill.
We wanted to know how air-fried food tastes, so we gathered staffers in the lab to try fare that the owners’ manuals recommend—french fries, chicken wings, and chicken nuggets. We cooked batches of the same foods in many of the air fryers and, for comparison, a deep fryer. “Staffers weren’t told which cooking method was used for each food, yet everybody could tell which foods were deep-fried,” says Larry Ciufo, the CR engineer who runs our air fryer tests.
Needless to say, the price range is quite wide. You should plan your budget and stick to it when you go ahead and purchase an air frying appliance. In some cases, spending more on an could be wiser, as usually higher priced units come with a handful of accessories and other bonuses such as longer warranties. The price you are willing to pay for such a kitchen appliance depends on you, but in any case, make sure that you are making a reasonable and long-term investment.
My husband bought me this Air Fryer for mother's day this year and I absolutely loved it. I used it all the time and even told friends and family about it and encouraged them to purchase one.... Then, two nights ago, it came on by itself in the middle of the night while we were sleeping and got so hot that it melted the plastic on the back of the unit by the vent. We were lucky in that it set off the smoke detectors in the house and we were able to remove the basket and unplug it before it caught anything on fire!! If you are going to buy this product (or already have it), I would highly recommend that you UNPLUG it when not in use and keep it in an area away from anything else that is flammable when in use. I am planning to buy another air fryer, but will definitely look for a brand that at least carries a warranty for more than 60 days!!
