Many years ago my baby niece suffered serious hot water burns and spent weeks in the burn unit at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto. While she was there we all tried to give my sister a break by taking turns staying at the hospital and we got to know some of the other families in the burn unit. One has always stuck out in my mind because she had serious head, facial and torso burns from hot oil. She had pulled a deep fryer down from the counter on top of herself. It was a deep fryer that locked and was considered “safe”. As a result, I have never owned a deep fryer and I never will.
I will admit that french fries cooked in the oven just aren’t the same as deep fried french fries, but it’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make and I really don’t need the added fat. However, I don’t have to make that sacrifice anymore and I can enjoy crispy french fries without the guilt. The Philips Airfryer allows us to make delicious french fries that are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside with little or no oil. They have eliminated the danger and the cholesterol!
Using Rapid air technology, the Airfryer circulates hot air around a metal mesh cooking basket, requiring little or no oil as it fries, bakes and grills. The starfish design on the bottom of the Airfryer facilitates air circulation, ensuring your favorite foods cook evenly.
I was familiar with the Philips Airfryer and was interested in the concept, but I wasn’t sure I was willing to give up the counter space just for some crispy french fries. I had no idea how versatile this appliance is. It isn’t just for frying, you can also grill, roast and bake food in it! The airfryer came with a cookbook that is full of incredible recipes that I never would have thought I could make with it.
This grill pan is used to make perfectly grilled fish, chicken or whatever you enjoy from the grill. It cooks faster than the typical grill and the non-stick surface makes it easy to clean. You can also get a baking pan that is non-stick. I never would have imagined I could make baked goods in a fryer!
