What do I make with the Airfryer?
French fries, snacks and potato
Fries in the Airfryer
If you bake fries in the Airfryer, preferably opt for oven fries or special airfryer fries. Other types can also be used, but experience shows that they're often less crunchy, and they tend to get dry. You can also bake sweet potato fries in your airfryer for a change.
Snacks in the Airfryer
For preparing good Airfryer snacks, we advise you to use only the snacks which are suited for the oven or Airfryer. Otherwise, you'll end up with very pale looking and mushy fried snacks.
Potato in the Airfryer
In the Airfryer, you can bake potato croquettes, potato slices, or potatoes. But you can also bake sweet potatoes in your airfryer, for example. Whether they're cut, freshly bought, or deep-frozen; anything is possible. Experiment with the baking time and temperature and add some oil to your liking.
Meat, fish and vegetables
Meat in the Airfryer
All types of meat are actually suitable for your Airfryer. Chicken skewers, meatballs, chicken legs; you can make them juicy and cooked. Pay attention to the temperature, because if you bake a thin piece of meat too hot, it will dry quickly. Larger pieces of meat should not be too close to the heating element. It's not necessary to use oil when you're baking meat, but it does ensure a crispy result.
Fish in the Airfryer
You can also prepare fish or shellfish in the airfryer. Breaded fish in particular gets nicely crispy without adding fat. Place a tasty piece of salmon in the Airfryer and marinate it in advance for extra flavor and a nice crispy crust. Shellfish, such as shrimp or langoustines, are also suitable for preparation in the Airfryer.
Vegetables in the Airfryer
You can easily roast vegetables in your Airfryer. Use firm vegetables such as eggplant, carrot, pumpkin, bell pepper, or zucchini. Cut these into large pieces and prepare them with oil, and possibly some salt or herbs before you put them in the Airfryer.
Pastries, oliebollen and sandwiches
Baking cake or pie in the Airfryer
The Airfryer is also available for baking recipes. So you bake a cake, but also a cake or a plate cake. Keep in mind that the Airfryer is smaller than a normal hot air oven. Baking an apple pie for 12 people is therefore difficult. The same applies to cookie baking. That is fine, there is only little space for many cookies at the same time.
Bake rolls in the Airfryer
Do you just want to bake something, such as pistols or croissants? That is what the Airfryer does for you too. So you enjoy a delicious fresh breakfast in the weekend. Only heating products is also a possibility, provided you do not set the temperature too high. So it seems like your ragout or sausage roll comes directly from the bakery.
Snacks in the Airfryer
Even baking pastry is possible. You can use a mix suitable for the oven for this. Make sure to use a recipe for baking in the Airfryer. The dough shouldn't be too soft. Spray the dough with oil and bake it in the Airfryer. This way, you can make tasty and more healthy pastries for the holidays.
App with airfryer recipes
Use the special Tefal or Philips app for recipes that you make in your Airfryer. The possibilities are endless; choose sweet or savory snacks, or even full meals.

Automatic baking programs
Do you find it inconvenient to set the appropriate temperature and time for each dish? An Airfryer with automatic baking programs is a good choice. This allows you to switch on the right baking program with 1 press of a button, for grilling chicken or baking muffins for example.
Which baking accessories do I need?
To bake pies, cakes or muffins, you need specific Airfryer accessories. A cooking rack is useful for preparing a complete meal in one go. Philips offers a lot of choice in baking accessories, but other brands also have them. Make sure that the accessories are suitable for your brand and size Airfryer.
