If you follow these instructions, you will cook perfect, crispy air fried chips.
1) cut the potatoes into chips
2) soak in water in the fridge over night
3) part boil the potatoes until they are beginning to go soft
4) dry the potatoes. This can be done by leaving them in a sieve/colinder for 20 mins
5) put them in a saucepan and shake them until they *just* begin to fall apart. This may look a mess but it'll create awesome crispy bits once they've air fried
6) coat well in a tablespoon of oil of your choice
7) airfry at 180-200 degrees for 20 minds or so, or until crispy.
Do not skip any of these steps to cook perfect airfried chips! It may sound long winded but it really doesn't take that long and is well worth it for the results :)

I bought one of these a few weeks ago.I find it very easy to use.I only use it for homemade chips,roasties,chicken breasts, baked potatoes etc.Chicken Kievs are especially yummy ,tender chicken ,crisp coating on outside.

I would recommend that you update the listing to show that this is the new air fryer and not the old one, as initially on first glance this deal didn't seem quite so good...

Better. I would suggest putting the "New model" part at the front of the listing though. That way it'll be the first thing that everyone sees. Should help the listing get as hot as poss in my humble opinion!

I could see the advantage in having a digital timer over the wind up manual one of the previous air fryer.

What are the differences between this one and the previous model (apart from the electronic timer). I bought the older one during the Black Friday sales but have yet to open it.

I guess nothing... Apart from the internal rack which can divide it in two compartments.

Do you know what types of food the internal rack is used for?

On another note some reviews say that the older one's mechanical timer sometime sticks so I'm guessing the electronic one solves that problem.

I been looking out for this fryer for a while. I saw it on Black Friday at Tesco but did not buy it as I know Tesco and other stores are trying to offload the older version as this new one has now come out. The main differences are the older version has been fed back to say the temperature in particular is not always consistent so say 150C on the dial doesnt always mean 150 it can vary a bit hence I assume why Philips has updated the control panel to digital. Also I noticed the pull out tray is different it is more secure and better built in the new version the old version, the catch appears bit flimsy again I assume they updated it due to feedback. If I were you take it back to Tesco and get the new one. This is a great price even Amazon has never sold it this cheap and John Lewis wont be price matching it as they only have the XL version.
Here is a link to the philips website and you can see what they are like.

Had the old one for 7 months now. It's brilliant at cooking chips with no oil. I've done chicken in it but it gets very smokey & sets off the smoke alarm. It's a good bit of kit & like the new digital feature

Bit unfair to return something like that, puts the price up for others too!

You must be doing it wrong, I cook all sorts in it, including home made chips etc. and they turn out better!

got mine from john lewis, 2 year warranty and it cost me £69 so I guess sales of good act is also on my side. I think the size on both of them are about the same; on the older version you can also buy the "wall" to divide the inside compartment and make it two small ones. I would say it fits a small whole chicken :)

I've got the 9240 xl version, why are they now saying add oil? Don't get it?
#31
Thanks OP. Reserved one to collect after. been looking for one.
#32
This is the small version tried the old small one sent back way too small. Also not the easiest thing to clean. Now have a halogen oven not as fast but a lot cheaper plus you can see the food cooking which is almost as much fun as watching the washing machine.
#33
I found the price is still ridiculous for what it is, because this exact model is being sold at $49+~10% TAX in the USA on TV shopping, that is about £36!!!

Still a good find if you can only buy it from this country though.

Great deal if you want to look like a lump of lard ;)

Agree don't buy one of these to cook marinated chicken in - Had to take mine back as it filled the house with smoke
#37
Can you make chips in this newer model still without oil?
#38
Got one last month, a few tries and my fresh chips are near chip shop quality now! Does great burgers too!
