    Dry Air frying, yes no more oil frying!! It's the future..

    A



    With fewer calories and the same good taste**, this Philips Viva AirFryer allows you to cook all of your favourite meals, but in a healthier way. Thanks to the patented Rapid Air Technology, hot air is circulated quickly throughout the entire cooking capacity to ensure crispy and delicious results. The Rapid Air Technology lets you fry with air to make food that is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. This offers a way of having your favourite meals fried, grilled, baked or roasted; but with fewer calories and the same good taste*.

    The possibilities of meals are endless and to keep you inspired, an AirFryer recipe book comes with every appliance which includes 30 recipes that range from brownies to quiches. The AirFryer is also extremely easy to set up and use. All you need to do is set the variable temperature and timer controls and the AirFryer is heated up and ready to cook in just 3 minutes. Once your food is cooked, the timer will let you know that your meal is ready and the machine will automatically cool down. This way you never need to worry if you have left the AirFryer on. As well as making delicious food with fewer calories*, the AirFryer has an integrated air filter. This ensures that there will not be any lingering odours in your kitchen, so you can just enjoy your delicious guilt free meal.

    These roasted potatoes and sausages tasted better than normal and we're cooked in half the time...






    A must for every kitchen!!!

    Crispy French fries next with no risk of clogging up the arteries with oil...

    ..
    They look, err, like they need a few more minutes in the frying pan/roasting tray.

    I don't think Aunt Bessy would approve of this "dry air" nonsense either.

    Dry air is the future, believe me they taste the same if not better . The moisture and flavour is enhanced and contained in the food.

    Some may say the food tastes better, but I wonder if that's psychosomatic because they think they're eating healthier? With no concern about health benefits, I think frying in oils is superior, frying in beef dripping even better (except on a cold day and the dripping starts caking up on your fish and chips at the park).

    Been doing it for two years. Though its more a roasting process. Great for roasting a chicken or doing chicken wings or cooking a chicken breast for salad. Sausages too. Hopeless for chips/fries.

    If those half-cooked, machine-produced conkers you put on display previously are your 'normal' then I can believe it.

    Saw it in the UK years ago and thought a bit far fetched, but would have bought one if Dyson which it wasn't. Since then, as nothing reaches a Thai table without dripping oil I think it's time to get one. Are they on sale here, or will it be an import job?

    Sounds good to me. Hope it sounds bad for palm oil producers also.

    Yep, The link between Teflon cookware and cancer risk stems from the way non-stick cookware is manufactured. One of the chemicals used to make Teflon and other non-stick coatings is called perfluorooctanoic acid or PFOA. Get on it.

    I'd say that's right, at a guess, not having one.

    Yeah, I've seen them at a few major kitchenware places. Local khao mun gai place has one and sells roast chicken as well. She loves it, says it cooks really well and fast.

    Have you used it often in those two years, or was it a novelty that soon wore off?

    What sort of volume can it comfortably hold? - the ones I've seen are like one large meal.

    Individual items or all at once? - ad pics show a bunch of different foods, but overflowing the tray so no way would it close.

    As a measure, how long for chips from freezer to plate?

    Easy to keep clean with no oil deposits building up?

    If all systems go would you suggest diving in for a >5k, or start with a cheap and cheerless chinky?

    ^ and how well does it do eggs


    https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-air-fryer/

    We’re sad to say that after more than 35 hours researching and testing air fryers, we don’t recommend them for most people. The air fryers we tried didn’t cook food better than a regular convection oven or convection toaster oven. Though we were genuinely excited to test air fryers, we think they’re far too expensive for what they give you. However, if you’re determined to get an air fryer, the Philips HD9641/96 Airfryer was the best of the models we tested—but we still don’t recommend it.
    As an alternative, convection toaster ovens are significantly cheaper than most high-end air fryers, and they offer more features and better cooking results. Thanks to their convection settings, the Breville Smart Oven and the Cuisinart TOB-260N1 produced crispier, more flavorful food than the tested air fryers did.

    The mindless quest for consumption continues, cleverly disguised as something else.

    Dumbing down techniques serve them well.

    Yes.
    In other words how can we extract a few more dollars out of consumers by selling them the same thing they already have but making it look different. It seems to work well with certain smartphones as well.

    Dry aired some juicy smoked bacon this morning, crispy fat.

    Perfect on a sandwich, only took a couple of minutes.

    No cleaning frying pans.

    winner, winner chicken dinner....next....hmm.

    Hate to burst your bubble but you have to clean both the basket and the 'bucket' (for want of a better word). The fat drips through the basket into the bucket and if you don't clean it, it starts to smell.
    Mine takes a full large chicken, you can't jam it full, the hot air has to circulate.
    A bench or toaster oven is more practical, you can grill toasted cheese sandwiches and make things like calzones and pizzas which you can't do in an air fryer.
    I use mine a lot though.
    No good for chips/fries. these need to be deep fried in oil or what you get is baked/roast potatoes which is fine if you want roast potatoes but not if you want chips.

    I don't think they are particularly healthy when all you do is stuff them full of a hundred weight of mass produced sugar laced potatoes matey.

    I used one once to try to make celeriac fries. Not so bad, but no better than a conventional oven well basted.

    That fat in the basket and tray is probably why the bacon has been tasting so good.
    A minimum amount is OK but it's due a clean after being used four times.
    Just done some button mushrooms and bacon, yummy.
    No way I'll be roasting a chicken in there,just ain't the space.

    Chit, you should have saved your money; just spay the food with some oil and use your Mrs Hairdryer.
