Features and Specifications
Rapid Air Technology
This new technology makes cooking more efficient. The fryer’s cooking chambers radiates heat from a heating element close to the food and the exhaust fan that is located above the cooking chamber helps provide the needed airflow from the underside. You therefore have heated air constantly passing through the food so that it is cooked evenly. With the help of a fan and grill, the fryer blasts hot air at a high speed to give you healthy, great-tasting meals.
Quality Cooling System
The super-heated air used in the fryer may sound scary but you need not be afraid, as the fryer is equipped with a cooling system. There is a fan mounted on a motor axis that controls internal temperature. This ensures that the conditions inside the fryer remain clean and healthy. The cooling system lets in fresh air through the filters, onto the bottom of the fryer cooling the internal parts.
Adjustable Temperature Control System
Be in full control of your cooking by having the freedom to choose the right temperature of up to 390 degrees Fahrenheit to cook different types of cooking. This allows you fry, bake, grill and even roast without having to worry about the outcome.
Automated Convenience Features
No need to monitor you food while it cooks, simply set the right cooking duration and the beeping timer will let you know when your food is ready. This allows you to multi-task and take care of other things while the food is getting ready. In addition, there is no risk of the food burning or being overcooked as the fryer will automatically shut off once the set time is over. The timer can be set to a maximum of 30 minutes which is averagely the longest you will need to prepare most meals.

Compact Innovative Design
The Philips’ Airfryer has a compact and glossy finish that makes it look great on any kitchen counter. The timer knob is located at the center of the fryer to give it a sort of retro-look. It is an analog timer but turns off when time is out with an old-fashioned ding. The Airfryer is tall and thin with the top section featuring a heating element and fan, while the bottom section is a drawer that pulls out to reveal the cooking basket. The bottom of the basket is made out of metal mesh to allow air pass through and hit the bottom of the drawer.
