Welcome to my Philips Black HD9220/20 Air Fryer Review. Expect to be wowed with what can be achieved via an Air Fryer and why they should be the main kitchen gadget in your home.
No matter what the occasion is we would be lost without our Philips Air Fryer. We got it a few years ago when we were obese and we wanted to get healthier. We haven’t looked back since and we use it for chips, jacket potatoes, crispy vegetables, potato wedges, chicken nuggets, meatloaf and lots of other things too.
Now when I look at pictures in magazines of deep fat fryers I can’t believe that we used to use these and how healthy we have since become.
So let’s talk air fryers (as we call them here in Portugal) for a quick minute or two.
The history of us at Recipe This & Air Fryers
It is no surprise to us that the Air Fryer that we own is a best seller on Amazon.co.uk. When we got our Air Fryer there was the choice of two. The one we own (Philips Black HD9220/20) and the Tefal Actifry. In choice selection we noticed that there seemed to be quite a few negative reviews for the Tefal and because we had bought a lot of products from Philips before we went with them.
Plus we also read a few articles from fellow people using the Philips Air Fryer and I was amazed by what they could be used for. They were marketed to those that wanted a healthier way to make chips, yet we could see its potential with side dishes and even main meals.
We didn’t own a microwave and this was our microwave, oven dish, grill and deep fat fryer all in one.
We were suddenly starting this new revolution in amazing home cooking.
Why get the Philips Air Fryer?
I have been using my Philips Air Fryer for nearly four years now and I feel like I have experimented with a whole range of different meals and snacks in it.
The best thing we love about the Philips Air Fryer is the fact that it works on air so you don’t have that horrible kitchen smell that you often associate with fat fryers.
I love the flavour that it brings to a dish and how amazingly crispy it can make a jacket potato or how delicious potato wedges taste. Then there is making chips in the Air Fryer. Before you know it you have at least 40 different things you can make in it.
On top of this it makes fantastic meatballs, fishcakes and chicken dippers.
It doesn’t take up much room in my kitchen compared to the Tefal Actifry as it is tall rather than wide.
It is easy to clean with its own underneath oil tray.
You can easily make a portion of chips with just 1 tablespoon of olive oil, making them incredibly low calorie and healthy.
In 10 minutes you can have meatballs cooked and ready to add to your tomato sauce.
