When I decided to get an air fryer I was confused with all the different models/makers/sizes. I did some research on the pros/cons of different fryers, their capacities, and the ability to stop/start when cooking.I decided on the Philips brand simply because of the reputation and the higher than average ratings. Than it was a matter of which model air fryer I would purchase. I have 2 children, and wanted a fryer that would be able to handle a larger quantity of food, which was why I settled on the XXL model. The ability to stop mid cooking, and than pick up where I started was great. I didn’t want to have to constantly reset the temperature and time every time I wanted to check on the food cooking inside. The footprint isn’t that bad, considering the size of the cooking area. And clean up is relatively painless. Granted, there are pieces to wash (and I wash by hand, I do not use the dishwasher) and sometimes the mesh bottom is a pain to clean. But I did like the bottom of the fryer with foil to help with clean up, which makes it easier when I fry food with higher fat content (like wings – which are really tasty air fried).Overall, I love my new airfryer. Maybe some days I wish it was bigger (like when I have to fry 2 batches of fries for my kids), but I would recommend this fryer to anyone. It’s relativelt quiet, *easy* to clean, works beautifully, and fulfills its purpose with ease. I actually use this appliance more than my Instapot!!

I got hooked on air frying when I bought a very expensive Power Air Fryer Oven from a TV infomercial. It only lasted 5 months, so I was screwed when it just suddenly stopped working. The company refused to do anything since it was outside it’s one month warranty. I did a lot of research, and finally decided on the Philips XXL Twin Turbo Air Fryer. It is expensive, But it comes with a ONE YEAR warranty. I have made tons of stuff in it, and LOVE everything about this machine! It has a large removable screen base pot above the “star” base. You can comfortably fit a small pizza in it. It makes the best frozen products! Crispy and hot fries, chicken tenders, shrimp, etc., in 10 minutes. It will hold a 5 lb. raw chicken and cook it to the same crispy-skin, tender, juicy meat perfection you get with a rotisserie; all the fat drips below the star and is ready to be drained when you are ready. Steaks, pork chops and hamburgers are a snap and cooked to perfection according to your preference, without splattering grease all over your stove and walls. Toasted subs are great! French bread pizza is perfection. Clean up is a breeze! I take my whole pot out, with the star, and the cooking insert and removable screen. I fill the base pot with hot water and Dawn detergent, add back the star, the cooking pot and screen and let it sit while I eat. Afterwards, it’s just a quick rub with a Dobie, rinse and done. It also can go in the dishwasher, which I occasionally do. Unlike my first AF, this unit does not get hot on the bottom. The air is vented at the top all around. And it is a tiny bit smaller than the oven I had. I love everything about this air fryer. You may think it is expensive, but if you, like I, buy the cheaper model, when it breaks, you will have spent at least half of what this one costs. I would suggest you forego the cheap one and go with this one. Also, this is the digital model which is more expensive than the exact same non-digital model, which has now dropped in price.
I used this Air Fryer for the first time to fry breaded Cod fillets. Here’s how I did it and what I will do differently next time. I cut three (3) very large Cod fillets into 12 pieces and fried in batches of four (4). I breaded them in Louisiana Cajun Fish Fry. Point to note – I use this same breading in my deep fryer and noticed that when fried in this Air Fryer the coating retained ALL of its zing – VERY spicy – I guess because it wasn’t being doused in the fryer oil. Next time I will use 50% Cajun and 50% regular breading to cut the zing! I placed the pieces (4 at a time) in the Air Fryer and sprayed with olive oil to coat them. I used the “fish” preset and set the timer to 12 mins for the thicker pieces and 10 mins for the rest. I paused the cooking halfway through, turned the fish with a spatula and then sprayed again with the olive oil to coat. I pushed the control button to resume and finish the cooking cycle. The fish came out very well with a nice crisp to them. Next time to help retain that crispiness I will cool them on a cooling rack versus putting them on a plate with paper towel (forgot I had so much less oil to worry about it – the paper towel was not necessary!) The fish was moist and delicious. My family and I were VERY impressed. Clean up was a breeze. I waited for the Air Fryer to cool, wiped the bottom plate to remove the crumbs and then placed all basket components in the dishwasher. EASY! It was wonderful not to have to drain fryer oil and dispose of it! I can’t wait to try chicken!
I absolutely LOVE this air fryer! I listed a few photos to show some of the things I have cooked. I am still in the learning stage. I don’t have a problem with cleaning it after each use, it is not hard @ all. I did buy the extra accessories. Baking pan, Grill, Party The one thing I did not like …Not enough room to cook bacon. I will work on this. If I figure out how to do bacon without having to cut in small strips, I will post @ a later date.

Product was good. Make sure to insert the fat burner/plate into the holder or your home will be covered in smokes. Other than that, the product is really convenient and easy to use.

This is a great air fryer from Philips. I also have the smaller version turbo star from Philips, but sometimes I want to cook bigger size of meal and this XXL is great for that, (They are two great air fryers ) Very happy with this purchase. Very fast delivery by this company. Very well packed. Great addition to my kitchen.
I have used this several times for chicken, fish, bacon and vegetables. You don’t feel like your eating greasy foods, it all comes out perfect. Money well spent!

I was very skeptical to spend this amount of money, however, this air fryer is everything I was expecting it to be. Very easy to use, the food is delicious, the clean up is easy.
This air fryer is indispensable in our household. It has been used a lot, as this is our second one. The previous one was too small for our needs. Once you tried cooking this way, you will never go back to the traditional means. Its quick, easy, clean and healthy way of cooking. It takes a few tries to get your individual processes right, but it is a quick learn. BTW, this Philips is the best in the market. Any other brand and/or design of airfryers are just imitators that cannot match Philips performance. (no I am not being paid by Philips).
Quality product with high quality performance. You get what you paid for. First thing to do is to download the app for the appliance because this was very helpful in all ways. Be sure to look at how to clean it because its fast and easy. This XXL can hold a whole meal. At first i had trouble figuring it out but now i am seeing more and more potential for it. I LOVE fries and this appliance does fries well. Try the McCain crinkle cut (frozen) fries and you cannot tell a difference from deep fried. so the healthy component lets me eat guilt free. I did ground turkey meatballs and they were perfect. I am still playing with my time limits. I also did stuffed pork chops! Divine. Everyone thought it was haute cuisine. I also did Jamie Oliver’s vegetables which were par boiled at first them I fluffed the outer edges of the potatoes and they were crispy and golden on the outside but soft on the inside. This worked well with the parsnips and carrots too. I do shake and bake topping on my chicken and this was delicious!!! Bacon in this is cooked to perfection minus the grease which drains to the bottom. I then added my hash browns (cut up potatoes) because of the space to add to my breakfast. The chicken wings cooked in this are UNBELIEVEABLE! My husband says they are better than deep fried ones and less work. I dip each wing in milk then roll in flour and cook quickly in this. Half way through I shake then in my sauce in a bowl and put them back in to finish cooking. The technology in this appliance is superior because it can cook at such a high heat and so quickly which is a bonus on the busy family with short time frames. I’m cooking as healthy as possible which is why i bought this model. The reviews for this one were very good and I can see why.

Great fryer. I upgraded to this from the small model to this one because the quality is awesome and I needed a bigger size. It’s well worth it. The XXL does seem to take a few minutes more to cook compared to the smaller model and there’s no rack to have a second level of food that the smaller model had but this one does have the grease catcher which makes sense. This is the only reason it’s losing a star in my rating.

I researched for several months deciding which air fryer was the right one for my family. Having never used one before I decided to go big or go home! I am so happy I chose the Philips XXL. It’s perfect for my family. I’m feeding my husband and our two teenage boys so I wanted the largest basket I could find. I’ve made meats, vegetables, mini pizzas, and more. You won’t be disappointed with this model. Clean up is simple and food tastes great! Highly recommend.
It’s the perfect size for family of 3. Any smaller and it may only be good for 1. Love everything about it – quality is fantastic. Only disappointed that it didn’t come with accessories like a rack. Purchased non-oem accessories that fit in Airfryer perfectly.
So I know this isn’t recommended for Bacon, but wow, 3 strips at 12 minutes @ 350F is amazing, literally 1/3 of a cup of grease pulled out. I think the trick is to do small batches and dump the grease. Never burnt and totally cooked to perfection. This is a great machine, glad I purchased it. Highly recommended seems like any issues they had have been worked out, no extra white smoke even for Bacon. I had a Breville convention oven but this ups the game to a whole new level.
Great product and quality. We are still learning and experiencing with recipes. Whole chicken, chicken wings and cakes came out great. So easy to check your food to see if it is desired result. If not, just keep it in a little longer. No pre heating required. Easy to clean. Only issue is it smokes sometimes so we put water on the bottom but this seems to cook my chicken less crispy but still juicy. I would definitely recommend.
