Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The most expensive of the tested models, the Philips TurboStar has a capacity of 3.1 quarts, which puts it in the middle of the pack in terms of size. Use the handy knob to set the cooking time and temperature. The electronic controls are fairly easy to use and read, and the preprogrammed settings for commonly cooked foods eliminate a step.
When filled to capacity, the exorbitantly priced Philips HD9641/96 was able to cook food more evenly than the other models we tested.
The Philips Airfryer Avance Collection works well when you want to heat frozen convenience foods like mozzarella sticks or pizza rolls. It's also easy to use.

What reviewers didn't like

This air fryer is on the noisier side, and cleaning the nooks of the basket can be a chore, although the rest of the fryer cleans up easily.
Cooking results ranged from acceptable to mediocre. When we cooked 28 ounces of frozen french fries at 350 degrees Fahrenheit in the Philips HD9641/96 for 25 minutes, most turned out evenly cooked, but a handful of fries were still underdone.
The air fryer wasn't any better than an oven when it came to cooking fresh foods like homemade french fries or chicken wings. The air fryer costs nearly $300 when it's not on sale, which is way too much money when you consider its limited capabilities and its mediocre performance.
