The results from my Philips Airfryer are not as expected
You can prepare potatoes, meat, poultry or breaded snacks in the Philips Airfryer. Foods such as vegetables will not get crispy when prepared in the Airfryer. To obtain crispy results follow the tips below:
Use of oil/fat
When you make home-made breaded snacks, do not forget to mix oil into the bread crumbs * Use low-fat snack varieties where possible. It will be difficult to get a crispy end result with snacks that have a high fat percentage.
Do not use too much oil, as this will make the food fatter and less crispy
Dry the outside of the food properly before you add oil
Meat or poultry can be lightly brushed with oil or marinated to get the crispiest results
Preparation of food
Food can become crispier by adding 1 or 2 minutes to the preparation time. Be careful not to burn the food.
Shake the basket halfway through the preparation process if the ingredients touch each other. Shake 2-3 times if you prepare larger amounts of food for a more even result.
Preparation of home-made fries
Peel the potatoes and cut them into sticks.
Soak the potato sticks in a bowl of water for at least 30 minutes, take them out and dry them with kitchen paper.
Pour a half tablespoon of olive oil in a bowl, put the sticks in the bowl and mix until the sticks are coated with oil.
Remove the sticks from the bowl with your fingers or a kitchen utensil so that excess oil stays behind in the bowl. Put the sticks in the basket.
Fry the potato sticks at 350°F and shake the basket halfway through the hot air frying process. Shake 2-3 times during the air frying process for a more even result. If the above solution did not help to solve your problem, please contact our Customer Care team.
