Philips Viva Collection AirFryer Review 2019 – 2020

Air Fryers

Air fryers are not a necessarily new appliance, but they have grown in popularity in the UK and beyond in the last few years. They are useful kitchen gadgets because they can fry foods without the use of calorie-rich oil that is usually required to produce such tastes and textures. Air fryers use fans, paddles, and high temperatures to achieve frying without the excess oil that is needed in traditionally deep fat fried foods.

Benefits of Air Fryers

Air fryers use less oil than traditional deep fat fryers, which allows you to indulge in delicious, crispy foods without the guilt of consuming extra calories from oil and fat. Using hot air circulating around the food replaces the need for oil or fat. In addition, air fryers are also great because:

  • They cook most meals faster than your oven or deep fat frying.
  • The food comes out healthier, but still full of flavor.
  • They are small and compact, taking up much less counter space than fat fryers.
  • Most of the removable parts are dishwasher safe, making cleanup a breeze.

All in all, air fryers are handy appliances that have a place in any kitchen. They are versatile, compact, and efficient. Keep reading to find out more about one of our favorite models of air fryers currently available on the market!

Philips Air Fryer

The Philips Air Fryer is a simple and reliable fryer that will be sure to fit all of your needs in the kitchen. Using patented Rapid Air technology, you can fry, bake, roast, and grill almost any ingredient you can think of. This way, you can produce delicious fried meals with up to 80 percent less fat than if you were to use traditional frying methods. Of course, you can still add as much oil as you would like to the air fryer regardless if you prefer that taste, but one of the great benefits of air frying is that you can use much less oil than you would with usual deep fat frying techniques.

With adjustable time and temperature controls, you are able to pre-set cooking times of about 30 minutes and up to 200C. There is also an auto-off function which allows you to go about your daily activities without having to keep a close eye on your cooking. Once it is engaged, there is a sound indicator to tell you that your meal is ready to eat. Not only is this feature convenient, but it also is a built-in safety feature that ensures that you do not leave your hot air fryer on for an overly extended period of time.

With the Philips Air Fryer, you can of course enjoy crispy fried treats including chips, sausages, and doughnuts, but the possibilities are not just limited to these. This air fryer can do much more than just fry foods; it can also grill, bake, and roast your favorite meals for endless variety. This little gadget can do it all!
