Philips Airfryer XL

In the XL variant, you can prepare 1.2kg of snacks quickly thanks to the shorter preheating time. It takes some practice to set the right time and temperature, but it gives you more control over how your snacks come out of the fryer. To keep an eye on the snacks, you have to extend the inner pan. Unfortunately, it doesn't have a see-through window. You also have to take the pan out to mix the fries, which means extra cooking time.

  • Shorter preheating time
  • A lot of influence over the result
  • You have to scoop ingredients yourself
Menu Tefal Actifry

Tefal ActiFry

The Tefal ActiFry FZ7600 has a load capacity of 1.2kg. Because you only have to set the preparation time, the ActiFry is easy to use. All you need to do is preheat the airfryer before you start cooking. Thanks to the transparent top, you can easily keep an eye on your fries and the rotating arm will automatically turn them over. Do keep in mind that the exterior of the Actifry can get extremely hot while it's on.

  • Has a see-through window
  • Turns the ingredients automatically
  • The exterior becomes very hot

Small airfryers for 2-3 people
