In the Kitchen: testing the Philips Airfryer XL

MiNDFOOD Food Director, Michelle McHugh, recently tested the brand new Philips Airfryer XL on a quick and easy recipe from the dedicated Philip's recipe index found on the Philips Airfryer website.

In the Kitchen: testing the Philips Airfryer XL

Preparing a sumptuous and healthy meal can be challenging, especially with the busy schedules of today’s modern families. According to research by the University of NSW, Australian parents are working longer hours in the office and at home combined than mums and dads in any other country.

Michelle tested the Philips Airfryer XL making delicious potato wedges, which she made using sweet potato instead of traditional potato chips. ‘The kids loved the wedges as an afternoon treat after school, and I didn’t feel bad serving them’ said Michelle. Functional yet fun, the innovative Philips Airfryer XL can help busy parents serve healthier, yet still delicious family favourites with a great tasting crispy result and any excess fat drained away!

‘The Airfryer is really easy to use, and so quick, best of all the clean up time only took moments’ adds Michelle. With the Airfryer’s patented Rapid Air technology, you can now depend on air to cook great-tasting fried food that contains up to 80 percent less fat.

Visit the Philips Airfryer website to access 69 delicious recipes and handy cooking tips & tricks and recipe videos. On a special ratings & review page you can see how many Australians are loving the Philips Airfryer. For those on the go who are in need for more cooking inspiration, simply download the Airfryerapp, from iTunes or Google Play, which has an additional 188 international recipes from fans and Philips alike, tips and tricks for guilt-free cooking and Airfryer FAQs.

Michelle’s Sweet Potato Wedges 


  • 1.2 kg large sweet potatoes
  • 1 tbsp (olive) oil
  • salt to taste


  1. Peel the potatoes and cut each in 6-8 wedges
  2. Soak the potatoes in water for at least 30 minutes. Drain them thoroughly, then pat them dry with kitchen paper.
  3. Preheat the Airfryer to 160°C.
  4. Put the potatoes in a large bowl, drizzle with the oil and toss to coat them. Transfer them to the Airfryer basket. Slide the basket into the Airfryer and set the timer for 20 minutes.
  5. When the timer rings, slide out the basket and shake the potatoes. Adjust the temperature to 180°C and set the timer for another 15 minutes.
  6. After 8 minutes, slide out the basket and shake the potatoes again.
  7. Fry until the timer rings and the potatoes are golden brown. Sprinkle with salt and serve on a platter.
