It’s the fryer that cooks without oil – producing chips and burgers that its makers say are healthier and just as tasty. The Philips Airfryer is aimed at sparing busy parents from slaving over a sizzling pan of hot, smelly fat. The device uses a grill and a fan to blast very hot air around food at high speeds, cooking it from all sides. And now it can be also be used to bake quiches, brownies and bread. The fryer was originally launched last year as an appliance to cook burgers, chicken nuggets or chips without the need for oil – creating family favourites without the guilt or the hassle of regular fried foods. But its creators say they realised users wanted to be more versatile, so they re-launched the product with a baking tray insert that can be placed inside. Without the baking tray insert, ingredients can be placed inside the drawer for frying. The appliance comes with a separator so different foods can fry at the same time without mixing the flavours.
