I can’t say it enough but I love my Philips Airfryer! I’ve added this to my list of things I can’t live without. It’s actually right on top of the list next to I-tunes, I-phone, Google, Waze and Spotify 🙂
I was gifted this wonderful gadget by my ever techy hubby. I normally don’t consider tech items from his as proper gifts. He’s such a tech freak that I think it gives him more joy to give me tech items than for me to receive it. I’m such a girly girl when it comes to this. He knew I had been eyeing this appliance for months. It has been out of stock for the longest time here in Manila. I even considered having it shipped from Singapore or Hong Kong, but then it would’ve been too expensive already.
I got this baby as a Mother’s Day Gift. Hint: Please cook more! hahaha 🙂
It’s from the Philips Avance XL collection. Look at this digital black beauty! 🙂
How do I love thee, let me count the ways:
1.) Shorter cooking time — busy mommas, this gadget is for you! 🙂
2.) Air is the new oil – it uses rapid air technology to circulate air around the food. It’s perfect for the health conscious – use very little or no cooking oil at all.
3.) You can fry to your hearts’ content without the guilt! (fish & chips, onion rings, french fries and potato chips — anytime you want!) 🙂
4.) Food still comes out crunchy and juicy.
5.) Wipe, wipe, wipe and it’s clean! Even easier to clean if you use an aluminum foil when you cook. No more oil splatter mess.
6.) Can be used for reheating — sayonara microwave!
7.) Very economical since you need to buy less cooking oil especially if you are just cooking for 2.
8.) I think this should also help us save on electricity since you now have shorter cooking time.
9.) Did I tell you can also roast and bake with this wonderful invention?
10.) With the timer feature, you can go about with your busy life and just come back for it when it’s done! Ready, set, cook!
11.) Your place won’t smell like fried fish anymore . This is especially important when you live in a condo.
12.) It has a divider so you can even cook 2 meals at the same time. Talk about multi-tasking!
13.) The XL is quite large so you can cook a whole chicken, liempo, or pecking duck in it!
14.) For the low EQ cook like me, you can open anytime to peek while it’s cooking.
Sharing with you my first 2 successful airfryer attempts. The only thing I experiment with is the length of time I leave it in the airfyer, depends on how crunchy or juicy you want your food to be. I was too excited to use it that forgot to take a lot of pictures.
1.) Breaded Pork Chops
a. Season the chops with salt and pepper.
b. Dip each side of the pork chop in a mixture of egg, milk, flour and breadcrumbs.
c. Pop into the airfyer for 12 minutes and ding, it’s done! 🙂
2.) Lumpiang Shanghai
a. Mix lean ground beef, finely chopped carrots and veggies.
b. Wrap in lumpia wrapper.
c. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
d. Airfry for 10 minutes and serve with your favorite sweet chili sauce!
