Philips HD9220 Airfryer – at a glance

The product’s versatility is seen in its many additional features, some of which include a 30-minute timer that has a ready signal and auto shut-off option.  It has dishwasher-safe parts, so cleaning up is not an issue. Cooking basket of this air fryer is kind of modest, with 1.8lb capacity. It comes in two colors you can choose from: black or white.

As many customers reported, this Air Fryer is works best when cooking French fries, alongside other food that’s often bought frozen. Although it looks a bit bulky, it is well designed, and well-made, weighing at 18.9 pounds. That being said, it’s still super easy to clean up after you used this air fryer to prepare your favorite meal. The air fan produce a fair amount of noise, which is a concern some customers expressed, but in the end – that detail doesn’t make that much of an impact on my experience using this product.

Chicken wings, French fries and frozen samosas are some of the meals you could make with this fryer with ease, and with almost no oil at all. The main downside is that one batch of any dish is for a maximum of 1-2 people, so you’ll have to be prepared to do more batches if you’re cooking for an entire family.

  • Temperature control
  • Versatility
  • Safety & build quality
  • Additional perks

While testing this product out, we have encountered a string of good factors, which have mostly outweighed the bad stuff. That’s a fine accomplishment for the manufacturer in our book, hence we decided to make the good things this review’s focal point. But have no worries, we’ll address the bits that bugged us as well. So, here goes!

Here are the main benefits you’re getting with this product:

  • It’s designed for optimal heating

In addition to the Rapid Air technology, this fryer has a unique starfish design of the bottom, which helps with air circulation so the heat can be evenly distributed, so that the food is cooked evenly and quickly, without the need for any usage of oil.

  • You control the time and temperature the food is going to cook for

This fryer has two dials that are integrated – one of them is used to set up a timer for up to half an hour, while the other is used to set the temperature up to a maximum of 390 degrees. With these great features, you are able to customize the desired cooking time and heat, so your food will turn out however you prefer.

  • It combines efficiency with safety

As soon as the timer hits zero, the fryer shuts off automatically, in order to prevent the food from burning, and a “ready” sound lets you know when the cooking is complete. The fryer’s handgrip is safe to touch and use, and its safety-optimized, non-slip feet keep it in place while it’s working. It has a cord storage, which is located at the bottom, which makes it easy to keeps things tidy and organized, and you can save on your kitchen space.

  • It has dishwasher-safe parts

The non-stick coated drawer and the food basket are removable, and are dishwasher safe, which makes cleaning up quick and easy. Philips Airfryer with Rapid Air Technology saves your home from the smell of cooking by filtering the air that comes out of the fryer. In our experience, this factor is sometimes discarded by new users, who often claim it’s no big deal to wash the parts manually, but boy are they glad they got the dishwasher-safe version further on up the road!

So what's the bad stuff?

The main down point we have to point out about this fella is the capacity of the cooking basked. As noted, 1.8 pounds is hardly an impressive figure, and while it’s certainly not bad, we could have used a bit more space. Additionally, some users have placed complaints about certain types of food such as frozen chips or fish fingers don’t taste as crispy as when they are deep fried, and we can slightly agree to an extent, causing that 4-star rating in the versatility section.


When all factors are combined and taken into consideration, we perfectly understand why so many folks praise this gizmo as the best air fryer on the market today. It has all the crucial features, it’s very safe, the food is plain delicious, there’s an app included in the mix, the entire thing is super easy to wash, and it’s budget-friendly. What more can you ask for? If you’re looking for a way to improve your health, but keep the food tasty, this is it!
