Why Buy A Philips Airfryer?

We’ve actually got Philips to thank for introducing the OG air fryer to our tastebuds back in 2011, so you’re always in expert hands with a Philips Airfryer. 


“Drawing inspiration from convection ovens, Philips was the first to utilise rapid air technology to give us a healthier alternative to traditional frying methods,” says Tracey Ellis, The Good Guys Buyer – Portable Appliances.

“Air fryers are also brilliant for reviving leftovers, turning out speedy snacks for guests, or working alongside your oven to streamline daily meal prep.”

The Top 10 Features To Look For In An Air Fryer

The latest Philips Series 3000 Airfryer XXXL has the power and design smarts to transform your cooking routine forever. Here’s how.

1. Two Different-Sized Drawers

Want an air fryer that lets you make whole meals at once and offers greater cooking versatility? The Philips Series 3000 Dual Basket Airfryer XXXL is cleverly proportioned with an extra-large drawer for family-sized mains, and a smaller one that’s perfect for veggies, sides or one-person meals. It all adds up to 9L of cooking capacity.

2. Synchronised Cooking

The Philips Series 3000 Dual Basket Airfryer XXXL has a linkable timer that automatically aligns your cooking times in the two drawers, so all your food is ready to serve together. No need for kitchen maths – one full meal, fresh and hot.

3. Delicious Air Fryer Recipes On Demand

Always looking for mealtime inspo? Craving melt-in-the-mouth roast chicken or air fryer pork belly? Choose the Philips Series 3000 Dual Basket Airfryer XXXL (or the family-friendly Philips Airfryer XXL 5000 Series), and explore an endless pantry of tasty recipes, tailored to your air fryer, via the Philips HomeID app.

4. Preset Modes For No-Stress Meals

New to air-frying? Or wondering how to use an air fryer from Philips? The Philips Series 3000 Dual Basket Airfryer XXXL has eight touchscreen presets, making it a cinch to cook air fryer classics including fries, roasts and cakes – or reheat last night’s pizza – without needing to know the exact cooking specifications. That’s the kind of kitchen help we all welcome!

 5. Dual Temperature Zones

Not all ingredients react the same way to air-frying. That’s why you need an air fryer with dual temperature functionality.

“With the Series 3000 Dual Basket Airfryer, Philips made the choice to create a large basket with a deep fryer basket that is capable of frying foods such as meat and potatoes together at high temperatures, then we made a small basket where you can cook vegetables at a lower temperature with the second thermostat to keep them moist,” explains The Philips Chef Martin Sender.

6. A Copy Function

Any tech that saves time on meal prep gets a big tick from us. With the Philips Series 3000 Dual Basket Airfryer XXXL copy function, you can quickly set the same cooking settings in both drawers with one button touch.

7. Dishwasher-Safe Drawers

How about a reprieve from scrubbing out greasy trays? Yes, please! The Series 3000 Airfryer XXXL has the added bonus of dishwasher-safe drawers and non-stick surfaces for the gift of no-fuss clean-ups.

8. Beautiful Design

A kitchen workhorse, the Series 3000 Philips Airfryer is no slouch in the looks department either. With an elegant matte black finish and rose gold handles, it will add class to any benchtop.

9. Helpful Alerts

Always sitting down to overcooked meals? With a handy beep, the Philips Series 3000 Dual Basket Airfryer XXXL reminds you to shake the drawer mid-cycle to ensure perfectly even crisping, every time.

10. Energy Efficiency

Keen to tame that power bill? Making a meal in your speedy Philips Dual Basket Airfryer can save you up to 70 per cent energy compared to cooking in a standard oven.(1)

Serve up these tasty air fryer meals from the Philips kitchen and watch the compliments roll in!  

Roast Pork

This healthy pork dish makes a deliciously simple, mid-week meal, served with steamed rice and a fresh salad.



4 servings
1 teaspoon of rosemary, fresh
1 clove of garlic
1 teaspoon of pumpkin seed
1 clove
1 pinch of salt
0.5 teaspoons of black peppercorns
1.5 teaspoons of oil
500 grams of pork neck, with rind
40 milliliters of water
40 grams of carrots
40 grams of parsley roots
80 grams of leeks
1 bay leaf
80 milliliters of beer
80 millilitres of vegetable stock



  1. Remove the rosemary leaves from the sprigs and peel the garlic. Finely crush them together with the pumpkin seeds, cloves, salt and pepper (using a mortar and pestle). Stir in the oil.
  2. Cut a checkered pattern into the rind of the pork neck. Rub in the spice paste. With the rind side down, place in the baking accessory of the Airfryer. Add boiling hot water to about 1 cm in depth. Place the baking accessory in the basket of the Airfryer. Start the Airfryer at 200c for 15 minutes.
  3. Turn the roast pork over and roast again for 15 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, for the carrots and parsley roots, peel them if necessary and cut them into thin slices. Wash the leek and cut it into rough chunks. Put all those vegetables in the baking accessory beside the roast pork. Also, add the bay leaf. Pour the beer and the vegetable broth over the roast pork and continue to roast at the indicated time and temperature. Periodically, baste the roast with the juices and cook for 30 minutes at 170c.
  5. Take out the meat and bay leaf. If desired, you can combine the sauce with the fine-puréed vegetables. Serve the roast pork with the sauce.


Salmon Bites

A silky smooth air fryer snack, destined to be a hit for Sunday brunch with friends.

3 servings
500 grams of salmon fillets
1 teaspoon of vegetable oil



  1. Remove the skin and bones from the salmon fillet, then cut it into 3 cm pieces. Brush or spray them with oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Arrange the salmon pieces in a single layer in the basket. If you cannot fit all in one layer, bake in batches. Cook for 8 minutes at 180c.
  3. Remove from the device and serve.


Simple Herby Hasselback Potatoes

The perfect accompaniment to a rib eye or kebabs – or devour them on their own as a posh snack on movie night.

3 servings
900 grams of potatoes, floury
1 garlic clove
1 teaspoon of rosemary, fresh
1 teaspoon of thyme, fresh
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of lemon zest, grated
3 tablespoons of olive oil
6 branches of thyme, fresh



  1. Wash the potatoes well. Cut them into thin slices, being careful not to cut entirely through the potato. Tip: use two wooden spatulas to make sure you don't cut all the way through the potato.
  2. Peel and mince the garlic clove. Wash and finely chop the fresh rosemary and thyme.
  3. In a bowl, mix the minced garlic, chopped rosemary and thyme, salt, lemon zest and olive oil. Tip: if using dried herbs instead of fresh, substitute 1 teaspoon of fresh herbs with 1/2 teaspoon of dried.
  4. Rub each potato with the prepared herb oil mixture. Coat well on all sides, getting some in between the slices as well.
  5. Arrange the potatoes in the basket and brush them with the remaining herb oil mixture.
  6. Slide the basket into the Airfryer and cook at 180c for 50 minutes.
  7. Once air fried, remove the baked potatoes from the Airfryer. Serve them warm, garnished with some fresh thyme on top.
