Philips airfryer

bored reading about baby's stuff??

let's talk about something else...

last 2 wks, out of the blue, DH mentioned about airfryer... he said, let's buy it -- so i did some survey between Philips Airfryer (which is available in Malaysia) vs Tefal Actifry (which is not yet in Malaysia market -- but a friend of mine bought it fr the UK earlier this year..)

Philips airfryer -- retail at RM1,199 --> if offer can get RM999 in Harvey Norman
Tefal Actifry -- there are few models, the black one cheapest is GBP119.99
I asked my friend in Aussie to look for Tefal actifry (she's coming back to Malaya soon and i have few stuff with her to be shipped in June) -- cheapest she can found is AUD289 -- but only reached me earliest end of June.

Tefal actifry -- available in the UK, kalau beli, kena consider shipping. A friend of mine bought it quite cheap around RM600 and shipped it together using courier service (buat group buy ramai2 and share shipping -- memang murah la -- prob is, u have to buy it and send it to the UK address, a person in the UK has to pack it in the courier box and wait for the courier company to fetch it yada yada.... it hassle but worth it if u have somebody to help you with it!!)



----
so we finally settled with this after considering few factors, among them:
  1. nak dapat cepat -- if Tefal fr Aussie, price around RM950-1000 -- but we'll receive it in August. DH konon ckp beli sini dgn harge yang lebih kurang, bleh dapat cepat so i can use it to cook my non-/less-oily confinement food... sooo thoughtful ehh??
  2. price-wise --> Philips ni can get cheaper if buy from someone in FB (BarangMurahUK), priced around RM750 siap boleh installment 4x tp paling awal dapat end of august *gulp* lama tu -- again faktor waktu
  3. warranty -- some would offer international warranty, tp tak sure if beli fr Aussie or UK, warranty void ke tak -- we are considering after-sales services/warranty -- kalau beli sini, ada problem, bleh terus pegi ke kedai tu balik (well, we both are non-risk-takers)
  4. why Philips & not Tefal?? -- though Tefal nampak lagi besar compartment dia, and ada 'pengacau' (to make food evenly cooked -- so takyah terbalik2 kan during cooking), we are afraid that the 'pengacau' akan buat food eg ikan goreng hancur --> that is DH's concern. I never thought of that!! LOL..
  5. and dari segi size too -- since our benchtop in the kitchen is limited, i prefer the compact size of Philips airfryer...


holaaa.... my new kitchen gadget

comes with 2 free recipe books

kinda 'retractable' cord

the 'basket' @ airfrying net

the detachable 'basket' -- both can be washed

the drawer tray when the 'basket' is removed


the difficult part maybe washing the basket/net -- but u can soak it b4 'scrub' it gently

first try -- re-frying leftovers McD fries -- airfried for 3-4 mins

airfried fish -- err fried for 5-7 mins

airfried (left) vs oil-fried (right)

airfried -- ayamadu nugget and ayamas drummet --> still crispy and cooked thoroughly!!
airfried marinade chicken... no oil, but the 'shiny' look comes from the honey i guess... tasty!!


my healthier marinade airfried chicken...

airfried frozen donut -- actually this is homemade donuts that i lightly oil-fried and kept them frozen.

I am extremely impressed with the results I got using the Oil-less air fryer from Bizarkdeal! I was not sure what to expect to be honest as I was skeptical of how this would actually work. To my surprise, it works amazingly!! It fried my chicken to be crispy and moist as if I fried it in a pan of oil except without the use of ANY oil! Never knew this was possible and glad that I found this and decided to try it out. Excited to try many different types of food with it!
