Kitchen Gadget Review: PHILIPS Airfryer Avance XL in Singapore

I am slowly becoming not just a gadget geek, but a kitchen gadget geek! I love how technology just makes everything better, including every day kitchen utensils and items. This is especially so when you consider the PHILIPS Airfryer Avance Collection XL (RRP: SGD539). That little space shuttle was sent to me for review, and initially I thought nothing of it... but turns out it changed my cooking life forever.

I shall proceed to just rave about it, shall I?

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!

  1. I always love the way air fryer can help me in my cooking, especially for any kinds of fried food.
    My french fries is one of the best dish which I can make. I often use 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil
    for chips but for others such as vegatables or chicken wings I will not add any extra oil.
    My family have 5 peoples, so PHILIPS Airfryer Avance XL are best my choice.
