This model is different from other models in the Philips range in that the colour is dark grey rather than gloss black. It has a similar design though to the HD9220/20 but with small cosmetic differences. There’s no digital controls with this model, it simply has two built in dials to control the timer and cooking temperature. Some people prefer this simplicity rather the digital controls and display on other models. The cooking timer can be set for up to 30 minutes, which may not be enough for some foods but you can easily adjust it to increase the cooking time once it has ticked down. The temperature control can be adjusted from 80°C to 200°C, and that temperature range is consistent across all the Philips air fryers models (with the exception of the HD9650/99 which has a keep warm feature).
There’s a cooking capacity of 0.8kg which makes it the smallest of the Philips range, so may not be enough if you’re cooking for larger families. However, in our opinion, this model would be suitable for cooking for 2-4 people.
The basket is easily removed using the single handle which feels comfortable in the hand.
