Morphy Richards 480002 – Introduction
This Morphy Richards health fryer 480002 is very similar to the Morphy Richards 480001 model we reviewed some time ago. The main difference is, the 480002 comes with extra accessories, which we’ll cover below. Established in the 1930s, Morphy Richards has a strong reputation for supplying quality household appliances in the UK.
This fryer, the 480002, has been available on the market since the start of 2017 and the extra accessories included (over the 480001), make it a popular choice.

Let’s take a closer look and see what the 480002 fryer has to offer.
The Morphy Richards line of health fryers looks strikingly similar to the Philips HD9220/20. The 480002, however, has an easy-to-read digital display to control the timer and cooking settings.
If you’re cooking for a family in your kitchen, then this model has plenty of capacity for catering for 4-5 people with its 3-litre capacity.
The unit uses Morphy Richards’ Rapid Air Technology which is just the fancy name given to how the air is heated and circulated. All you need to know is food is cooked consistently with only a spoonful of oil needed. There’s no rotating paddle or bowl with this fryer, it doesn’t need one as even cooking is achieved by fans which do a great job of circulating the air around the food.
If you’re counting calories, this fryer only uses one spoonful of oil, and it’s entirely up to you which cooking oil you decide to use. You’ll be amazed at how crispy and tasty the food comes out of this fryer. Morphy Richards has done a great job.
Pre-sets for simple cooking
Morphy Richards has taken the thinking out of cooking with this fryer by including pre-set cooking programmes, so there’s no need to guess temperature and timer settings – it is all done for you! Whether baking, defrosting, cooking burgers, chicken or cakes, there’s a preset for most things.
Cooking from frozen is made easier too, with a built-in defrost function. Of all the fryers we’ve reviewed on this site, Morphy Richards is the only brand to include a defrost function in their fryers, so well done, Morphy Richards!
Recipes and instructions
In the box, you’ll find an instruction booklet that includes some Morphy Richards health fryer recipes to get started. Morphy Richards also offers a free app called “Cook and Create” – available on the Apple App Store and Android Store. We’ve downloaded it, and some fab-looking recipes are there – take a look!
12hr timer delay
Another useful feature is the 12-hour timer delay. This means you can program the fryer to start cooking at a certain time, so you can come home after work, for example, to perfectly cooked food, ready to serve. This is a great time saver, especially if you live a busy life where time is of the essence.
Touch screen display
The modern display is a full touch screen – just like a smartphone device. Simply touch the display to adjust the different settings. The controls are easy to see and use; however elderly users may confuse the program settings.
The 480002 is supplied with a frying pan and cake tin which only adds to the versatility of this health fryer. These accessories will mean you can fry and bake food such as fish, muffins and cakes.
What’s the difference between this 480002 model and the 480001?
The main unit is the same, but the 480002 comes with extra accessories, namely a cake tin and frying pan/grill tray. (You can find the 480001 model on Amazon here).
There’s a non-stick coating on the basket, which makes it easy to easy after cooking.
You’ll be pleased to hear that the washable components can be washed in a dishwasher and the main unit can easily be cleaned with a damp cloth.
