Enjoy a healthier alternative to frying without sacrificing flavour thanks to the Philips HD9230/20 Viva Airfryer.

Rapid Air technology

Cook your food using just a fraction of the oil that conventional frying requires with Viva Airfryer's unique Rapid Air technology that also lets you fry, bake, roast and grill.

Thanks to the unique design of the Philips Airfryer with Rapid Air technology, the cooking process is virtually odourless compared to traditional fryers and its smooth interior makes it easy to clean, safe and economical enough for daily use.

Spacious cooking

The Viva Airfryer can accommodate up to 0.8 kg of ingredients, more than enough for everyday portions.

The Airfryer gives you the same great results as deep fat fryers, sealing the outside of your ingredients and cooking the inside. However, it achieves this with hardly any oil, leaving you with healthier but just as delicious results.

As well as frying, the versatile Airfryer can also adapt to grill, roast and bake, subtly adapting the cooking method to give you varied results.

For added inspiration, the Airfryer also comes with a recipe book that lets you get most out of your new fryer.

Digital time and temp control

Cook around your schedule courtesy of the Airfryer's integrated timer that allows you to pre-set cooking times of up to 60 minutes. Once the timer has finished, the Airfryer turns itself off to prevent overcooking, and lets you know with a handy alert so you don't need to wait around.

A fully adjustable temperature control gives you complete control over the temperature so you can pre-set the right heat for your food, all the way up to 200 degrees for crisp fries and wedges as well as meat, snacks and more.

Make the most of the space

Utilise all the available space with the included double layer accessory that gives you more space to create meals.

Layer up ingredients for a more efficient way to cook, giving you more room to prepare healthy and delicious food with the versatile Philips HD9230/20 Viva Airfryer in black.

I bought the 9920 on black friday for £49.99 from tesco direct - used it yesterday for the first time with 1/2 tb spoon of oil and even with the kitchen extractor fan on - It stank the kitchen out - quite disappointed really !

​try using fry light. Also if you are using bought oven chips, these are coated with oil anyway and don't need the extra oil.

Not tried oil myself though, nicer chips than actifry, but not as lazy
Are these as good as the Tefal Actifry? Ive been meaning to buy a decent air fryer for a while. Also would this be large enough to serve two people?

We have one and it can do enough chips for the four of us.
I find it very useful for heating up pre cooked sausage rolls/pies etc. - Much better than the microwave and it uses less energy than having the main oven on.
I keep seeing these coming up on here but I'm trying hard to resist. I can't see the benefit of it over my gas oven. Plus I've got a combination fan assisted microwave/oven. Is there any point in me getting one of these? I'm a kitchen gadget freak that has most things. X) X) X)

Thanks for your reply. My only other question is that does this cook food distinct from an oven? I have a Halogen oven which is great for baking chips and meats but doesnt give the 'fried' taste or retain the moisture of a fryer. I just dont want to buy a device that is the same as the one I already have.

I don't have a Halogen type cooker but I believe the Airfryer gives a better , more 'fried' result from what I have heard but may not be enough to warrant another kitchen device though. Oven chips certainly turn out better than they used to in my fan oven.
I was looking at these for about 18 months before I finally caved in but i am glad I did.
Bought in the Black Friday event from Tesco, excellent so far, used for chips, samosas, spring rolls, pastry, battered fish so far works a treat
I have 9220 bought from tesco on black friday deal, so far working great with frozen food and crackers. Now hunting for price drop on 9240/90 for my parent.

We have both and prefer the air fryer by miles for our needs. Doesn't mash up the chips and better with hash browns.
The kids bought us one for xmas.. Said bought on offer at £49..
Have to say it's great for frozen items like fries, chips, nuggets, hash browns etc.. No need to add anything and food no longer soaked in oil !!
Wife tried fresh cut chips with a tiny amount of oil. Did them ok but she said it seemed to take a lot longer..
Got one bloody good but leaves a awful mess in the fryer to clean

​Must be doing something wrong. I've cooked fresh and frozen chips, wedges Kievs, nuggets, frozen party foods, goujons and loads of veg and can't knock it, a lot of experimenting with times.

Frozen French fries the best so far though!!
Wouldn't mind getting the tray to double layer

I'm coming round to yours for tea on Monday....I'll be dead by Thursday
Found same price in my local tesco for white model.
Use mine daily for chips and sausage rolls etc
Also tried bacon, pork steaks, battered fish, meatballs, sausages, mini pasties, mini Kiev's, chicken drumsticks etc

I have a feeling they poured the oil directly into the bottom of the tray. X)
Still £50 in your local Sainsbury's, call them up as my local store never put them out so they were left in the warehouse.
Bought this in white from tesco for the same price. We have since ordered the Tefal Actifry due to the size.
I bought one in the Black Friday event too and must say I use it pretty much everyday. I've even used it to make toasties! You really do only need a touch of oil (I brush mine on v lightly).
Want one but I am only allowed to spend £50 on it (hubby rightly trying to curb my gadget spending). Annoyed I missed out on one BF!

​You're meant to coat the food in oil before you put it in, not pour the oil in the fryer like some of the other air fryers.

That is good, think of it for convenience, not a healthy alternative, which it isn't.

"healthier alternative to frying without sacrificing flavour " just isn't true. Chips without fat/oil are just dried potato.

Use grease proof paper saves a lota cleaning up
Awesome bit of kit. One of the only ways of keeping food moist and juicy without using oil. Have never added oil. Why would you especially with oven chips etc.

Whoever I have recommended this to have bought it and loved it since. My mate bought this full price at 149.99 and absolutely loves it.

Won't tell him about this deal.
got the manual timer one in the black Friday deal.
I use ours most days. bought a sainsbury curry tonight meal went in the microwave and the indian snacks went in the oven.Gives better results than the normal oven. food is crispier.
Hash browns need twice the recommended time in the normal oven to give good results but this does it in half with better results. have also used it for cheese on toast as the bread/toast comes out nice and crispy.(although the cheese can fly off).
so far 2 of the family are looking for it after they've tasted the results. i think they were converted when on boxing day the party garlic bread came out soft and not crispy. after 5 minutes in the Philips they were lovely and crispy and ready to go. I also pop my croissants and scones for 5 minutes so they taste more freshly baked.

highly recommended and a actually useful item if you like cooking.

just want to add I think i like the manual control one over this as you can change the setting as you cook. this digital touch over complicates it i would have thought.

ur not supppsed to use oil
You can use oil but this is added to the raw cut potatoes. oven ready chips dont need it.
It could also be the machine has to burn of some stuff on first use. Mine has never made a smell
We use ours daily - love it - just separate the the section you put the food into and stick it in the dishwasher - couldn't be easier to keep clean! My other half is veggie and it does his tofu perfectly he says (and in a fraction of the time it takes to do it in the oven).
These are fantasia. had one for 4 years. used nearly every day for one thing or another (like a mini oven) mine is the manual version and has been very reliable. I had a tefal befre and it was pants as the turning paddle broke. Great deal :-)
fantastic even
Just thought I would let people know, I bought one and have used it twice
and it is a great fryer. Well worth the money. I know it has ended, just wanted you to know.
Purchased this last week & used it at weekend.

Tested it on some frozen sausages,,, nicely done & not dark brown colour like you get when frying,, also tested on some frozen oven chips & have to say that it's so crispy compared to previously when I used to stick them in oven.

Very worthwhile purchase as it gets rid of the fatty and greasy bits in food.
Is £129.99 now.
