Kitchen Gadget Review: PHILIPS Airfryer Avance XL in SingaporeJuly 24, 2014
|Source: Philips SG|
I have always been curious about the Philips Airfryer because it really just sounded like a oven with another name, and doubted that anything in there will taste like fried food. But I underestimated the power of innovation, and rapid-air technology. It was only when I tried it did I realize the ingenuity of it!
There's a heating coil at the top of the dome shaped enclosure, of which a basket is placed inside. Then air is made to circulate through the coil in a circular motion around the dome, around and under the food thats sitting on the grill of the basket so you don't have to flip the food or be concerned that it's burnt at the bottom, which an oven could do easily.
Because of the rapid-air, it will 'fry' any food you place in there, as long as there's a thin layer of oil on it, or it contains fats/oils that will sizzle when in contact with heat. That's why it uses 80% less oil. You could put fries in, spray some truffle oil on them and set it for 5 minutes and voila!
In any case I'll be publishing a series of PHILIPS Recipes that I've personally tried, such as Sweet Potato Fries, Chicken Wings, Bacon Avocado Fries and finally, my masterpiece - the Matcha Nutella Zebra Cake.
Sounds yummy? Stay tuned!
