[review] Philips Avance XL Airfryer

Philips Avance XL Airfryer
Every since I uploaded a video clip over at my Instagram (shown below) on my new kitchen gadget; the New Philips Avance XL Airfryer. I have been receiving comments and requests on sharing my reviews as well as related  recipes made using this gadget. And for myself who loves "to collect" kitchen gadgets that enables easy and healthy home cooking for the family, I am sure this new appliance will makes wonder in our kitchen.


Furthermore this new Philips Airfryer also comes in handy to replace my 12 years old Philips Oven Toaster which served us well over the years whipping up yummy dishes like baked chicken mid-joints/drumlets, baked rice, pizza and etc.



Here is a short video clip of the new Philips Avance XL Airfryer with a power of 2100W and capacity size of 3.0 litre (1200g) which is much bigger (400g more) than two previous two models. Plus with its digital touch screen control it also make cooking easier for everyone at home. Besides that it also has a new preset button which comes in this new model too.

Likewise for those who owned or intending to get a Philips Airfryer (depending on the models such as Avance XL (latest), Viva Digital and Viva), this handy gadget actually runs on an unique Rapid Air Technology that enables user to fry with air in order to make food crispy on the outside and yet remain tender on the inside (tested this with my homemade sweet potato fries and avocado fries). On top of that, user can also choose to add in little oil (or omit totally) to perfect the end result depending on their preference.

Above shows the Cooking Basket where food are place onto it to cook in the Airfryer. But in order to achieve best cooking result, food place on it must not exceed the MAX indication or the maximum amount shown on the table of the instruction menu included with the purchased.

Secondly with this digital touch screen menu it makes cooking easier when user need to increase or decrease the temperature or cooking time within a sensor touch. There is also a "preset" button beside the "start/stop" button on the left side that allows user to pre-program the cooking time and temperature of their favourite ingredients within a touch of the preset button.

And for safety purpose this appliance is also equipped with an automatic switch-off function.

For example: If you do not press a button within 30 minutes, the appliance switches off automatically and you have to press the power on/off button to switch it on again.

There is a cord storage compartment at the back of the appliance to keep the cord neat and tidy for storage purpose.

Cleaning the appliance after every use is essential (unless you are baking cake or cooking food in a ceramic bowl or aluminum case)  in order to remove oil from the bottom of the pan as well as dirt and grease form on the basket lines.

For Cleaning:
1. Let the appliance cool down before removing the basket and pan for washing.

2. Using a moist cloth, wipe the outside and inside of the appliance; remove any food residues on the heating element or on the sides of the interior.

3. Wash the basket and pan with dishwashing liquid and a non-abrasive sponge (the pan, baking tray and basket are dishwasher-proof too).


Before First Use:
1. Remove all packaging material such as foil form the control panel or any stickers label from the appliance.

2. Open the drawer by pulling at the handle to remove the basket by lifting the handle then follow by the pan by tilt it backwards off the rails.

3. Thoroughly clean the basket and pan with hot water and some dishwashing liquid and a non-abrasive sponge.

4. Next wipe the inside and outside of the appliance with a moist cloth before placing the pan in the drawer and basket in the pan.

Lastly for those who are keen in baking but without a proper convectional oven, you can try baking some simply bakes such as muffin, mini cake, loaf of bread (if you have a electric stand/hand mixer). For your information you can easily grab hold of these ceramic or disposal bakeware from Daiso or leading baking supply outlets to use in your Airfryer.
