    •  

      Just checked the T&Cs. Costco is not a participating store :(

      •  

        Costco never is. Philips have been offering cashbacks during Christmas over the last few years, never included Costco.

      •  

        No but I got jb to price match Costco and they gave me $50 of free accessories and I got the cash back

        •  

          What accessories did you get

          •  

            @albanyson: I got the skewed n rack the cake Tin and the meat tray

        •  

          well done on the price match :)

        •  

          none of the jb hifi around my area would price match costco :(

    I have one of these, I don’t think it can fit 14 kilos of fries..

  •  

    What is the difference between this and the HD9650/93? (Still waiting for around $350 on the 93 model)

    They look virtually identical, but this one is a slightly older model?

      For a comparisons- https://bit.ly/34anW93

      •  

        Thanks, looks virtually identical from that comparison.

        •  

          If I recall, the only difference is that this model includes the shelf accessory.

          However you can buy the shelf separately, and it comes with an additional divider, which I believe isn't included in this model.

          I bought them separately myself, to get the divider. We got the 93 model for $344, and party master accessory kit for $48, so basically $12 for the divider (compared to this)

          That said, I must admit that I've barely used the divider. Although still happy I got it and have the option.

          We've got all the accessories except the breakfast one, and the shelf is probably our most used, along with the snack cover, and the baking tray.

          •  

            @dregs: Thank you for the info! Really appreciated. I've never really considered the accessories before so I'll give them a closer look.

  •  

    I always wonder if the fries and chicken taste better on expensive air fryers when compared to the economically priced ones at stores like Woolworths, Kogan.

    •  

      also v curious if anyone who had the cheap (<$100) ones and finally decided to go for a philips AF can share the experience

        I had KMart air fryer for a a year. It does the job, then got this bad boy. With Kmart one you still need to flip your food, this one you don’t. The temperature on the Phillips preads more even so food heat up quicker. You get what you paid for.

        •  

          I was going to say, good luck cooking that many fries at once.
          My experience with the kmart ones was you really needed the food separated else they wouldn't cook properly. I guess that is what you are paying for here. More food at once and a better cook overall.

          Still recommend the kmart one. We use it for the kids meals (chicken pieces and chips etc) most nights. So much quicker and cheaper than the oven.

      • +4 votes

        Moved up from the kmart one to Philips about a year ago.

        Definitely does a better job. Crispier, i think mostly because it uses a mesh grill underneath which provides much better airflow than the kmart job which was essentially a flat plate with holes punched in it. Also probably has a better fan.

        Also it uses more electricity/runs a little hotter and cooks stuff about 10-20% faster.

        On the down side though, the Philips is more annoying to clean.. more groves for grease to accumulate in, especially underneath the mesh grill and also, for some reason it smokes more and has set off the kitchen smoke alarm a few times (probably just cause it runs so hot). (best to use near the range hood if you can).

        If my Philips died tomorrow and my only two options were the $69 kmart one or the $400 Philips then I'd pick the Philips for sure. But it is fairly pricey and I wouldn't be surprised if there was a mid range air fryer in the $100-200 price bracket that is every bit as good as the Philips. Cant say for sure though.

    My Philips handle broke when the screw came off. The way it's positioned you can't attach it back yourself. Had it for a few years now. Great machine, but I think I will fire up the new Mistral I got from another OzBargain deal. Much bigger than this too and for 1/4 of the price.

      The one pictured we bought a few weeks ago. This and all the others of this style we looked at definitely didn't have a bottom heating element.

  •  

    What is the ozbargain Verdict on Acrylamide? I want to buy an airfryer but I watched this video on youtube and it has got me questioning.

    https://youtu.be/tqcuskaReug

    •  

      None of that video matters or gives really useful information.

      An airfryer is literally a fan forced oven (a typical oven in a house) but with a more powerful fan that is typically closer to your food. The result is that you can get the same crispiness in 20 minutes, that a regular fan forced oven would take 30-40 minutes. But newer fan forced ovens have turbo options etc.

      The whole fat reducing thing is a scam to make you buy an air fryer, its only relevant if your only source of cooking food at home is a deep fryer, which is not normal for an Australian household where ovens are common.

      •  

        But they did the measurement in the lab and Acrylamide was substantially high and is proven to cause cancer in other mammals apparently. I’m not really bothered about the fat reducing thing.

        •  

          I think you might be making a huge deal out of nothing.

          Eating potatoes in general will mean you will consume Acrylamide.

          Reusing oil combines this risk with potatoes and situations where you reuse oil (a deep fryer) and makes the risk even higher.

          So overall:
          Avoid reusing oil.
          Don't eat potatoes for all your meals, and if you do, follow the recommendations to reduce Acrylamide.

          Air fryers don't really have anything relevant to Acrylamide because as I said, its just a fancy oven.

          •  

            @samfisher5986: so looks like cooking it with the skin reduces the Acrylamide build up. honestly had no idea about Acrylamide in potatoes causing cancer.

          Oh bummer. Was about to pull the trigger too.

          Maybe I'll try in-store at Costco, and see if there is any stock in situ.

          •  

            @z z: I picked up a unit at Costco Perth Airport. About 16 odd units left in stock in store @ Perth Costco from what I could see, if that helps anyone…

  •  

    My Phillips air fryer lasted just over a year then started randomly stopping short of the set time and then completely died , I went for a brand name thinking it would last longer , extremely disappointed , now I have a cheap Chinese job and it works just as well as the Phillips did (when it worked) , I personally now would just pickup the cheapest you can find, the Phillips is way over priced for what it is but I thought I was paying extra for quality , pfft not any more.

    •  

      Every product has a failure rate, even if its a million dollar air fryer.

    •  

      Dang. I've had a cheap chinese job which lasted 2 years. Tefal which lasted 1 year. Was looking at the Philips now… Didnt you get it fixed or repaired in warranty?
