When all the factors are combined, this is definitely a good product. Please note that the most important thing here is that you can significantly increase the quality of your life and your health – that is what this product offers and that is what you should pay attention to the most! But, some nifty extra features have been nicely added to the mix, and the price is more than fair, leaving us with no choice but to recommend this product to you. Good stuff!


Cooking basket capacity: 4

We like how the company utilized the double layer rack – which comes included with this air fryer – to make certain that the usage of the air fryer’s cooking basket is maximized. This allows you to bake, fry, grill and roast even more of your favorite food. Despite the neat arrangement and maximum ergonomics, this is still not the biggest cooking capacity we’ve seen, hence the 4-star rating.

Temperature control: 4

The device was designed for optimal heating and is generally quite easy to use. In addition to the Rapid Air technology, the device boasts a unique starfish design of the bottom part that helps facilitate air circulation for so the heat will distribute evenly, meaning that your food will get cooked  thoroughly and quickly, while using little to no oil at all. This air fryer can do more than just fry – it can also grill, roast, or even bake your food, so you’ll have more options when cooking for your family or guests. With Philips HD9230 air fryer you can create everything from delicious cakes to tasty fried chicken.

Also included in the mix is Digital Time and Temperature Control. Note that all settings of this product are customizable, enabling you to cook your food exactly as you want to. The digital integrated timer allows you to set the cooking time to up to an hour. The temperature control, which is fully adjustable allows you to pre-set any cooking temperature you want for your food – up to 390 degrees, meaning you can now enjoy crispy golden-brown fries, snacks, chicken and more, all prepared at the right time and temperature for the best result.

Versatility: 5

The HD9230 can tackle just about any type of food you can think of, but another amazing point about the device is how easy it is to clean. The removable nonstick coated pan and the food basket are dishwasher safe, enabling quick and easy cleanup. Philips Airfryer with Rapid Air Technology makes sure you and your home stay free from the frying smells as compared to a regular fryer. We are looking at a modern tool that makes every type of food shine with health and good taste, all while being maximally user friendly and easy to clean. Nothing more than a 5-star thumbs up!

Safety and build quality: 4

As soon as the timer hits zero, the fryer automatically shuts off to prevent your food from overcooking and/or burning, with a “ready” sound indicator alerting you when cooking is complete. The fryer’s handgrips stay cold to the touch, and its non-slip feet makes sure the fryer is kept in its place.

The double-layer rack, which was specially designed for this air fryer, maximizes the cooking surface in use, and it is dishwasher safe, so there’s no hassle with the cleanup. This appliance addressed the issues that some previous versions had, so now there’s a cord storage that is located at the bottom of the appliance, making sure things are kept tidy and organized.

General build quality is solid, strong, and while the device is 100 percent safe, we’ve still seen a few more durable items in this price range, hence the final rating of 4.

Additional perks: 5

The Philips Airfryer app is also included in the mix! It’s a great tool you can use when you’re in need of some inspiration, guidelines or support for the preparation of delicious homemade meals. You can now do that easily by using smart phones and tablets, in order to get more from your Philips Airfryer, and improve the home-cooking experience overall.

The recipe book also showcase the versatility of the air fryer by introducing you to many different recipes, so that you can grill, bake and even roast food in a much healthier, faster and convenient way.
