About Philips
Philips refers to the Dutch global conglomerate firm Koninklijke Philips N.V., which was established in Eindhoven in 1891. Although the Benelux headquarters are currently in Eindhoven, it has been mostly headquartered in Amsterdam since 1997.

IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed including the following:

  1. Read all instructions.
  2. Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs.
  3. To protect against electrical shock do not immerse the cord, plugs, or appliance in water or other liquid.
  4. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children or invalids. Children should be supervised by a responsible person to ensure they do not play with the appliance.
  5. Unplug from the outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow to cool before putting on or taking off parts.
  6. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the appliance malfunctions or has been damaged in any manner. For assistance in the U.S. and Canada only, call 1-866-309-8817.
  7. The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the appliance manufacturer may cause injuries.
  8. Do not block any ventilation openings. Install by the manufacturer’s instructions.
  9. Do not use outdoors.
  10. Do not let the cord hang over the edge of the table or counter, or touch hot surfaces.
  11. Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner, or in a heated oven.
  12. Extreme caution must be used when moving an appliance containing hot oil or other hot liquids.
  13. Plug the cord into the wall outlet. To disconnect, turn the power On/Off button to “Off”, then remove plug from the wall outlet.
  14. Do not use the appliance for other than intended use.
  15. Use extreme caution when removing the pan, fat separator, or basket and disposing of hot grease.
  16. Do not clean with metal scouring pads. Pieces can break off the pad and touch electrical parts, creating a risk of electric shock.
  17. Use only on properly grounded outlets.
  18. A short power supply (or detachable power supply cord) should be used to reduce the risk resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
  19. Extension cords may be used if care is exercised in their use. If an extension cord is used:
    • The marked electrical rating of the cord must be as great as the rating of the appliance.
    • The cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the edge of the counter or tabletop where it could be pulled by children or tripped over unintentionally.
    • If the appliance is of grounded type, the extension cord should be a grounded-type 3-wire cord.
  20. This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.
  21. Oversized foods or oversized metal utensils must not be inserted into the appliance as they may create a fire or risk of electric shock.
  22. A fire may occur if the appliance is covered or touching flammable material, including curtains, draperies, walls, and the like, when in operation. Do not store any item on top of the appliance when in operation.
  23. Do not place any of the following materials in the appliance: paper, cardboard, non-heat-resistant plastic, and the like.
  24. If you are using baking or parchment paper to avoid food from sticking to the mesh basket, never put in the paper without placing the food you are cooking on top of the paper. Otherwise, the lightweight baking paper could be lifted by the air ventilation and touch the heater.
  25. Immediately unplug the appliance if you see dark smoke coming out of it. Wait for the smoke emission to stop before pulling the pan out of the appliance.
  26. Use on a flat stable, heat-resistant surface away from water or any heat source.
  27. Do not leave the appliance unattended while it is operating.
  28. This appliance operates at high temperatures which may cause burns. Do not touch hot surfaces, parts or the inside of the appliance while it is operating. Let the appliance cool down completely before you handle or clean it.
  29. During hot air frying, hot steam is released through the hot air outlet openings. Keep your hands and face away from the steam and air outlet openings.
  30. Avoid contact with moving parts.
  31. This appliance works with hot air only; food is not fried in oil or fat! Never fill the pan with fat or oil.
  32. This product is for household use only.
  33. Never use the air fryer without the pan, basket, or fat separator in place.
  34. Do not use the plugin or near a power outlet that contains an electric air freshener to prevent damage to the plug.
  35. Do not use the device for longer than 60 minutes with setting “on” in 2 hours.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

Consuming raw or undercooked meats, poultry, seafood, shellfish or eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness. Make sure the ingredients prepared in this appliance come out golden-yellow instead of dark brown. Remove burnt remnants. For the best results, do not fry fresh potatoes at a temperature above 180°C/350°F or beyond golden-yellow.

Introduction

Congratulations on your purchase and welcome to Philips!

To fully benefit from the support that Philips offers, register your product at www.philips.com/welcome. Your Philips Airfryer XL uses hot air to fry your favorite food with little or no added oil. Unlike other low-fat fryers, it is built to fry as crispy as deep fried with the least amount of fat.

Its uniqueness lies in the combination of its powerful heater of 1725 watts and the new Twin TurboStar Technology that generates hot swirling air through the whole cooking basket resulting in a perfectly crispy taste with the least amount of fat.

Fat released from the food is captured in one place at the bottom of the pan for easy disposal and cleaning. You can now enjoy perfectly cooked fried food – crispy on the outside and tender on the inside – Fry, grill, and bake to prepare a variety of tasty dishes in a healthy, fast, and easy way.

Making home-made fries

To make great home-made fries in the Airfryer:

  • Choose a potato variety suitable for making fries, e.g. fresh russet potatoes.
  • It is best to air fry the fries in portions of up to 1000 grams / 35 oz for an even result. Larger fries tend to be less crispy than smaller fries. – Shake the basket 2-3 times during the air frying process.
  • Peel the potatoes and cut into sticks (8x8mm / 5/16 x 5/16 in thick).
  • Soak the potato sticks in a bowl of water for at least 30 minutes.
  • Empty the bowl and dry the potato sticks with a dish towel or paper towel.
  • Pour a half tablespoon of cooking oil into the 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 slotted kitchen utensil so excess oil remains in the bowl.
  • Put the sticks in the basket.
  • Fry the potato sticks and shake the basket halfway through the air frying process. Shake 2-3 times if you prepare more than 500g/17.6 oz of fries.

Cleaning

Warning

  • Let the basket, pan, fat separator, and the inside of the appliance cool down completely before you start cleaning.
  • Remove the fat separator from the pan using rubber-tipped tongs. Do NOT remove using your fingers as hot fat or oil collects under the fat separator.
  • The pan, basket, fat separator, and inside of the appliance have a non-stick coating. Do not use metal kitchen utensils or abrasive cleaning materials as this may damage the non-stick coating.

Clean the appliance after every use. Remove oil and fat from the bottom of the pan after every use to prevent smoke.

  1. Press the power On/Off () button to switch off the appliance, remove the plug from the wall outlet, and let the appliance cool down.
  2. Remove the fat separator from the pan using rubber-tipped tongs. Dispose of rendered fat or oil from the bottom of the pan.
  3. Clean the pan, basket, and fat separator in a dishwasher. You can also clean them with hot water, dishwashing liquid, and a non-abrasive sponge (see ‘cleaning table’).
    • If necessary, food residues stuck to the heating element can be removed with a soft to medium bristle brush. Do not use a steel wire brush or a hard bristle brush, as this might damage the coating on the heating element.
    • Wipe the outside of the appliance with a moist cloth. (Fig. 39)
    • Clean the heating element with a cleaning brush to remove any food residues. (Fig. 40)
    • Clean the inside of the appliance with hot water and a non-abrasive sponge. (Fig. 41)

Tip

  • If food residues stick to the pan, fat separator or basket, you can soak them in hot water and dishwashing liquid for 10-15 minutes. Soaking loosens the food residues and makes it easier to remove. Make sure you use a dishwashing liquid that can dissolve oil and grease. If there are grease stains on the pan, fat separator or basket and you have not been able to remove them with hot water and dishwashing liquid, use a liquid degreaser.

This appliance has no other user-serviceable parts. For assistance in the U.S. or Canada only, call 1-866-309-8817.
