Welcome to my best ever Philips Airfryer New York Cheesecake. We love cheesecakes here at RecipeThis.com and it is only right that we should add a classic New York Cheesecake to our mix of Airfryer recipes.
It is one of those recipes that we should all learn how to make and perfect it so that we can reuse it whenever a special occasion comes up. In reality what a New York cheesecake is, is a basic cheesecake that can then be jazzed up to use for a variety of cheesecake recipes.
For example you could add lime to it to make a Key Lime Pie, chocolate to make a chocolate version, caramel for a caramel one or our favourite add lemon and honey for a traditional lemon cheesecake.
Then when it is a birthday and you are in charge of making the cake, decorate it and use this recipe. The same can be said for a summer barbeque, a baby shower, a christening or even a graduation party.
What we like to do, (well apart from eating it) is to portion it up and take it to the beach in the summer as part of our family picnic. It makes a great alternative to regular picnic desserts and because it has been pressure cooked, it stays stiff and does what it should do.
Whatever your use for it, save this Philips Airfryer New York Cheesecake recipe and use it whenever you have the urge for cheesecake and I can guarantee that there wont be any leftovers!

- Start by making the biscuit base. In a mixing bowl add the plain flour and sugar and mix the fat into the sugar and flour until you have a mixture that looks like breadcrumbs. Combine it, make it into biscuit shapes and place them in your Airfryer on a baking mat. Cook for 15 minutes on 180c.
- Grease the sides and bottom of your spring form pan with a little flour.
- When the biscuits are cooked, break them up into tiny pieces and mix them with the melted butter. Pat the mixture down into the bottom of the spring form pan.
- In a mixing bowl add the soft cheese and the sugar and using a hand mixer, mix the sugar into the cheese until you have a lovely thick creamy mixture.
- Crack the eggs into the bowl, add the vanilla and mix with a fork.
- Stir in the quark and then pour the cheesecake batter into the spring form pan. Using a spatula press down the sides and top of the cheesecake so that everywhere has a flat smooth edge and wont look odd once cooked.
- Cook on 180c in your Airfryer for 30 minutes and then leave it in the Airfryer to keep warm for another 30 minutes.
- Transfer to the fridge and leave to set and cool for 6 hours.
I use quark in my cheesecake. Even though it is a fat free cheese it is very thick and makes a more cheesy flavour to the cheesecake rather than using whipped cream. If you can’t get quark you could use single cream instead.
You could also swap the butter, plain flour and brown sugar for digestive biscuits instead but I love a homemade biscuit base that tastes like shortbread.
Its important that you leave it in the fridge for 6 hours. It will enhance the flavour and make it really stiff at the same time.
Introducing The Elsterware Spring Form Pans
All this week our cheesecake recipes in the Airfryer are in partnership with the Elsterware 10 inch spring form pans. They fit perfectly into a large Airfryer and the cheesecakes come out so good.
We haven’t grown up eating cheesecakes. It was something that we discovered after starting RecipeThis.com and we are in love with how an Airfryer + Spring Form Pan = the best ever cheesecake that you will get to try.
Elsterware Spring Form Pan Review
Here are 10 reasons to buy this particular spring form pan:
- Deep interior
- Dishwasher safe
- Durable construction
- Easy to clean non-stick interior
- Excellent value for the quality of pan
- Handy lid with built-in carrying handle
- Larger pan that I usually find
- No leaking
- Pleasing colourful design with four choices
- Spring clip opens and closes easily but securely
Our verdict – I have a love-hate relationship with spring form pans. I’ll see one that looks great or carries a popular brand name and buy it on a whim. At least 80 percent of the time, that great looking or big-brand pan ends up leaking and becoming a pain to use. I’ve thrown away more pans due to spring form clips that take every ounce of muscle power to open or pans that leak so badly that I have to wrap the outside of the pan in foil to prevent a mess. Who needs that?
Elsterware’s 10-inch spring form pan is a delight. First, it comes in four vibrant colours. There’s no dull grey here. You can have a bright amethyst, a cheery sky blue, fire engine red, or a pleasing pink. Second, the spring form’s hinge works effortlessly every time. I’ve had no problems with it sticking, even after baking in it and washing it a number of times.
As an added bonus, this is the first time I’ve had a spring form pan with a tight lid. The lid does have a carrying handle. I don’t recommend carrying your cake or cheesecake without supporting the bottom.
While the lid does snap on and form a tight seal, the weight of something like a cheesecake might be too much for the lid to handle. My lid did okay with a pineapple upside down cake, but the cheesecake proved to be too much for the lid and handle. You’ve spent your time and energy making a tempting dessert, so use an extra hand and keep it safe.
Its best feature…personally this has to be the size. When you look online for accessories for the larger airfryer size there just doesn’t seem to be any. But this particular size is perfect. Plus it is suitable for other airfryer cooking. I could imagine using it for pies, pastas and even meatloaf.
Overall – Elsterware’s 10-inch spring form pan left me pleasantly surprised. It did measure a little over 10-inches, so it was a little larger than I expected. I’ve had a few spring form pans over the years. I love making cheesecakes, but many of the pans I’ve owned end up leaking the first time I use them. That wasn’t the case. The pan’s bottom fit snuggly into the spring form’s side and prevented any leaks due to the tight fit. I wouldn’t carry it solely by the lid’s handle, but it is helpful to have the lid for airtight storage.
