    Very interesting product. Of course it would be better with the addition of the llama though. You should write the marketing department and request it as a feature for the AirFryer 2.0. I’m telling you, this is where AirFryer technology is going. This is what’s going to keep them ahead of their competitors. Llamas.

    I want one! They even sound like they aren’t so likely to burn down the kitchen (I know someone who burnt a friends kitchen while making chips). I just wish they came with a free baby llama so I could really fill my kitchen with things I don’t play with much! Yes, sadly I just don’t think I can justify the room for one – will have to stick to the oven for roast potatoes and baked chickpeas (love yours very much)

    NO GADGETS??? You had a deprived childhood.

  4. Errign

    That thing look SO cool. And I definitely want the baby llama. Duh.

  5. Junia @ Mis Pensamientos

    i have never heard of this before!!! wow. does this still use a bit of oil though?? and butternut fries look AMAZING.

  6. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    Like you, I grew up without kitche gadgets. There were a hearth, an oven, and a fridge, and that was it. I also wasn’t used to soft drinks and fast food like McDonald’s. I didn’t even like it because it was so strange, compared to what my mom cooked frashly every day.

    However, by now, I have a couple of kitchen gatgets, and I enjoy them a lot! No air fryer, though, but a toast oven, a rice cooker, and a blender. I lover them dearly. 😉

    Bahaha I saw that on TV a few weeks ago and wanted one instantly. Another perk of it? Highly unlikely that my smoke alarm would go off and not stop when in use…unlike every other tikme I’ve tried to make fried chips 🙁 If only I was loaded.

  8. Sarah

    Oh my. Another gadget to add to my list of things I absolutely cannot live without yet will take up all of my counter space.
    Roasted chickpeas are so great!

  9. msihua

    Oh lucky you! I’ve been wanting to play with this air-fryer for a while now.. no special happy chance.. And that croquette looks AHMAHZING… love it.. yum.. and I like chickpeas too so I’m sure I would love them better roasted! yayy

    This sounds like a whole lot of awesome. Deepfryers are a pain to clean, and what do you do with all that oil?! And they rarely come with baby animals to help eat potato peels. So this air fryer seems like a hands down winner.

  11. kelli

    hey hannah! you make me laugh like no other blogger.=) never heard of an air fryer but now i’m interested!

  12. leaf (the indolent cook)

    No fair! Where’s my free airfryer? This is exactly the kind of thing I need to encourage myself to eat more fried foods. Even if it doesn’t come with a baby llama.

  13. Fatbooo

    Waw.. healthy deep-fried foods? I wonder if I’ll get the same sore throat after eating these oil-free fries the same way I do with normal fries.

    NB: do the baby llamas spit?

  14. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)

    Whoa, that’s crazy! I’ve never heard of that. I’m too scared to fry because I fear oil splattering all over my kitchen, haha!

  15. Jayme @ Runner-n-Spice

    Very impressed with the homemade chicpea blend! I usually just buy them pre roasted/ made…..looks better done in your own kitchen!

  16. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    I grew up in a no gadget household too!! No microwave until I was in year 9. I still don’t know how to use it hehe. The butternut pumpkin fries look ridonculous!!!!! As do the chickpeas – whenever I make them they go soggy :S
    Heidi xo

  17. Sarah

    Wow, that is amazing! I love chips, and the chickpeas… yum.

  18. Akika

    I didn’t know such a cool gadget existed! I’ve been meaning to buy a deep fryer just because my bf’s house has no fryer at all and deep frying anything is a pain. Maybe I’ll give this a try! Healthy anything is good right now since I’m always eating so much!

  19. InTolerantChef

    Oh I want one, I want one, I want one! The only issue is where to hide it from my husband, he wants me to remove one old gadget for every new gadget I bring into the kitchen. I’m sure even he couldn’t argue with the health benefits of this one though?

  20. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    AIR fryer? I have never heard of such a thing! How cool that they sent you this fancy appliance to try. I don’t do deep-fried stuff (usually) so this is a “fryer” I could actually use.

    PS – you used the word ‘ostensibly,’ yay! <3

  21. Louise

    Congratulations on being such a fancy pants famous blogger that kitchen appliance manufacturers now lob their stuff at you. I hope you get to keep it…. The salmon croquettes looked really good. That little plate of three looks like it could come out on a trolley at yum cha! The roasted chick peas look fabulous too. I’d want to make the browines too. But do you have to buy a special tin to cook them? And it certainly is R2D2 for 2011!

  22. Kayla @ Fitter Than Choc

    Hannah oh Hannah! You make me wanna buy the air fryer too. My household is slightly different from yours on this. My mom loves trying out new stuff, and sometimes she ends up buying stuff that we don’t use. Such as sandwich maker, takoyaki pan etc. This air fryer seems pretty wonderful though. I don’t like how chips are often oily, so this might be a good option. But for now, I’m saving up for a vita-mix:)

  23. Cait's Plate

    Oh my gosh – I need one of these in my life IMMEDIATELY!!

  24. miri leigh

    I love your sense of humor! Thanks for the great post!

    “I almost felt like I was back in the Woden Plaza food court on a Friday afternoon in Grade 8, eating Kingsley’s chips with friends.”

    Thank you so much for writing that sentence! It brought back so many memories!

  26. Phil

    Forget the food. I want to see a Youtube trailer using the thing as a character in a SciFi movie. That might finally be dialogue I could write.

  27. sheila @ Elements

    What a wonderful review!! I’ve never heard of an air fryer before, but it’s great to know that it works so well!! I’d love to try it myself. I’ll have to see if I can find one. Thanks again and have a happy Fourth of July! 🙂

  28. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Hehe cute review Hannah! I’ve been playing around with mine too and made similar things! 😀

  29. Anna johnston

    Well aint that a wicked cool product. I love it. Your such a lucky ducky being gifted such wonderful gadget. I’ve never heard of such a thing before, can we trial cooking a bunch of things in it, WHEN WE FINALLY CATCH UP?
    Can you get a car this week? I could head southside if ya want?

  30. Camille

    Why not make regular brownies and then use this gadget to fry them? 😉

    Also, pumpkin fries = genius.

    (I just had an insecurity attack about the spelling of genius, but am too lazy to look it up right now, even on the interwebs. It has probably now taken me longer to write this comment than it would have to do the initial looking up, but you know what Calvin says: “It isn’t work unless someone makes you do it.”)

  31. Emma

    While I see no proof of aforementioned llamas, the machine looks space-agey enough to be able to birth li’l egg dumpling cutie wootie baby animals in mere minutes (when set to 180° C of course).

    However, I love love love deep frying foods. And I love love love the lingering smell of oil (mmm), so I would likely likely likely overload this monster with too much tastiness. AKA fattiness. AKA artery-clogging oiliness.

    I want to play-act Laura Ingalls Wilder with a hearth too, but if I met my own Almanzo, I’d never call him Manny.

  32. jim

    absolute success also with,Steaks,Chops,Sausages,(never had a failure and the taste is terrific)Roast turkey in alum foil,roast chicken pieces,bread dinner rolls (3mins) hardly ever use the oven anymore.One complaint…..even though I am a single pensioner, I find the capacity needs to be increased.

  33. AJ

    @ Hannah: I loved your roasted chickpea recipe.

    @Others: I have recently bought my airfryer and is loving it so far.

    Also, I’ve picked it as a case study for my product-design course, and I’ll appreciate if some of you can spend few mins sharing your experiences so far with the Airfryer–less than 2 mins for sure. Your few answers will be of immense help to me (plus its a good karma). The questions are at-

    Thank you all for your help,

    I have the philip airfryer but just recently the handle of the airfryer broke and i just want to know whether the handle is fixable,where i can get it fixed and how much it will cost me. Thank you.

  36. Melanie

    I have the XL Phillips air fryer and at the beginning I loved it, however I’ve only had it since Christmas 2014, and it is now may, mine smokes ALOT and I have done everything possible to clean/fix it and it won’t 🙁

  37. Nina

    Hi Hannah, I have just purchased the Philips XL Airfryer and was looking for reviews/recipes etc., and came across yours – very helpful. I have never thought of roasting chickpeas (not heard of that here in UK) I would love the recipe for the spice mix to give them am a try. Are you supposed to cook everything in the basket or do you ever cook in directly in the base I.e., say putting in a tin to cook brownies – wondered if you knew and tried any more new things out? Many Thanks

  38. Nina

    Hi Hannah, thank you for responding to my comment very much appreciated. Do you still have the recipe for the spice mix? If not no worries. I hope you eventually get reunited with your Airfryer – thanks again Nina

  39. Nina

    Thank you Hannah for taking the time out to reply very and giving me the link for the spice recipe. I swill try them out at the weekend I am always on the look out for healthy canapés/snacks to serve with drinks etc.,

    Your immediate reply is much appreciated. I will allocate some time to read your blog properly it looks really interesting.

    Thanks again and best wishes from Nina UK

    Wow, I bought Philips air fryer 1 year ago. With the recipe book in the deal.
    I love cooking, I love eating foods no oils and also know some local food. These peppers sound fantastic and I’m intrigued by the airfryer.
    With one air fryer, I can easily and quickly cook every dish I like: all fried foods, food warehouses, including sauces. That’s great.
    I think you should have a Air fryer in your kitchen.
    Thanks for your recipe, i will try it
