The Philips Avance has been designed to allow excess fat to drain away from the food during the cooking process – so there are even fewer calories in your food. Can you see why air fryers like this are also known as health fryers!?

Easy to use
As we’ve already mentioned, this fryer is so simple to use – you only need to set the cooking temperature and timer on the touch-sensitive screen. Within 3 minutes, your Philips Avance will be up to the desired cooking temperature so that you can start cooking. This is the great thing about all air fryers – they allow you to start cooking your food much sooner than a conventional oven would.
One concern we often hear about air fryers is, “Do they cause cooking odours in the kitchen?”. It’s a fair question, as the word “frying” is often associated with deep fat frying, which we all know leaves a lingering odour in the kitchen. Philips has addressed the issue of cooking odours by fitting an integrated air filter which ensures there won’t be any lingering smells in your kitchen.
For your peace of mind, there’s a 2-year warranty that comes with this fryer.
The unit’s height is approximately 31cm, so will fit under most kitchen cupboards.
You’ll love the versatility this fryer provides as it can bake, grill and roast your favourite foods, so you can enjoy delicious, healthy meals cooked just how you like them.
Philips has designed easy cleaning by making the removable drawer and food basket dishwasher safe. Simply pop those items into your dishwasher to clean them after cooking. (Depending on what you’ve cooked, you may only need to wipe them clean with a kitchen towel)
Let’s take a look now at some of the review comments left by buyers of this model.
Buyers often comment about the large capacity and power of the fryer and how easy it copes with cooking whole chickens.
Several buyers commented how they wouldn’t like to be without their Philips Avance now and use it daily to cook their meals.
They also like how much more economical using an air fryer is than a conventional electric oven.
This powerful Philips air fryer 9240 looks the part and doesn’t fail to deliver on the cooking quality you’d expect from a well-known brand. Its capacity will suit larger families who enjoy eating a range of healthy but tasty foods. There’s no rotating paddle on this fryer, as with other fryers on the market, but that shouldn’t put you off this premium air fryer from Philips. A quick shake of the basket at mid-cooking time and your food will be evenly cooked.
