    • The cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the edge of the counter or table top where it could be pulled by children or tripped over unintentionally.
    • If the appliance is of grounded type, the extension cord should be a grounded-type 3-wire cord.
  20. This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician.
    Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.
  21. Oversize foods or metal utensils must not be inserted in the appliance as they may create a fire or risk of electric shock.
  22. A fire may occur if the appliance is covered or touching flammable material, including curtains, draperies, walls, and the like, when in operation. Do not store any item on top of the appliance when in operation.
  23. Do not place any of the following materials in the appliance: paper, cardboard, plastic, and the like.

Making home-made fries

To make great home-made fries in the Airfryer:

  •  Choose a potato variety suitable for making fries, e.g. fresh, (slightly) floury potatoes.
  • It is best to air fry the fries in portions of up to 800 g/28 oz for an even result. Larger fries tend to be less crispy than smaller fries.
  1. Peel the potatoes and cut into sticks (1 x 1 cm/0.4 x 0.4 in thick).
  2. Soak the potato sticks in a bowl of water for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Empty the bowl and dry the potato sticks with a dish towel or paper towel.
  4. Pour one tablespoon of cooking oil into the bowl, put the sticks in the bowl and mix until the sticks are coated with oil.
  5. Remove the sticks from the bowl with your fingers or a slotted kitchen utensil so excess oil remains in the bowl.
    •  Do not tilt the bowl to pour all the sticks in the basket at once to prevent excess oil from going into the pan.
  6. Put the sticks in the basket.
  7. Fry the potato sticks and shake the basket 2-3 times during cooking.



  • Let the basket, the pan, and the inside of the appliance cool down completely before you start cleaning.
  • The pan, the basket, and the inside of the appliance have a non-stick coating. Do not use metal kitchen utensils or abrasive cleaning materials as this may damage the non-stick coating.

Clean the appliance after every use. Remove oil and fat from the bottom of the pan after every use to prevent smoke.

  1. Turn the timer knob to 0, remove the plug from the wall outlet and let the appliance cool down.
    • Remove the pan and the basket to let the Airfryer cool down more quickly.
  2. Dispose of rendered fat or oil from the bottom of the pan.
  3. Clean the pan and the basket in a dishwasher. You can also clean them with hot water, dishwashing liquid and a non-abrasive sponge (see ‘Cleaning table’).
    • If food residues stuck to the pan or the basket, you can soak them in hot water and dishwashing liquid for 10–15 minutes. Soaking loosens the food residues and makes it easier to remove. Make sure you use a dishwashing liquid that can dissolve oil and grease. If there
      are grease stains on the pan or the basket and you have not been able to remove them with hot water and dishwashing liquid, use a liquid degreaser.
    • If necessary, food residues stuck to the heating element can be removed with a soft to medium bristle brush. Do not use a steel wire brush or a hard bristle brush, as this might damage the coating on the heating element.
  4. Wipe the outside of the appliance with a moist cloth. (Fig. 23)
  5. Clean the heating element with a cleaning brush to remove any food residues. (Fig. 24)
  6. Clean the inside of the appliance with hot water and a non-abrasive sponge. (Fig. 25)

This appliance has no other user-serviceable parts. For assistance in the U.S. or Canada only, call 1-866-309-8817.

Cleaning table


  1. Unplug the appliance and let it cool down.
  2. Make sure all parts are clean and dry before storing.


  • Always hold the Airfryer horizontally when you carry it. Make sure that you also hold the pan on the front part of the appliance as the pan with the basket can slide out of the appliance if accidentally tilted downwards. This can lead to damaging of these parts.
  • Always make sure that the removable parts of the Airfryer are fixed before you carry and/or store it.


Your product is designed and manufactured with high quality materials and components, which can be recycled and reused. For recycling information, please contact your local waste management facilities or visit www.recycle.philips.com


This chapter summarizes the most common problems you could encounter with the appliance. If you are unable to solve the problem with the information below, visit www.philips.com/support or (in the US or Canada only) call 1-866-309-8817 for assistance.

Problem Possible cause Solution
The outside of the appliance becomes hot during use. The heat inside radiates to the outside walls. This is normal. All handles and knobs that you need to touch during use stay cool enough to touch.
The pan, the basket, and the inside of the appliance always become hot when the appliance is switched on to ensure the food is properly cooked. These parts are always too hot to touch.
If you leave the appliance switched on for a longer time, some areas get too hot to touch. These areas are marked on the appliance with the following icon:

As long as you are aware of the hot areas and avoid touching them, the appliance is completely safe to use.

My home-made fries do not turn out as I expected. You did not use the right potato type. To get the best results, use fresh floury potatoes. If you need to store the potatoes, do not store them in a cold environment like in a fridge. Choose potatoes whose package states that they are suitable for frying.
The amount of ingredients in the basket is too big. Follow the instructions on page 14 in this user manual to prepare home-made fries.
Certain types of ingredients need to be shaken halfway through the cooking time. Follow the instructions on page 14 in this user manual to prepare home-made fries.
The Airfryer does not switch on. The appliance is not plugged in. Check if the plug is inserted in the wall outlet properly.
Several appliances are connected to one outlet. The Airfryer has a high wattage. Try a different outlet and check the fuses.
I see some peeling off spots inside my Airfryer. Some small spots can appear inside the pan of the Airfryer due to the incidental touching or scratching of the coating (e.g. during cleaning with harsh cleaning tools and/ or while inserting the basket). You can prevent damage by lowering the basket into the pan properly. If you insert the basket at an angle, its side may knock against the wall of the pan, causing small pieces of coating to chip off. If this occurs, please be informed that this is not harmful as all materials used are food-safe.
White smoke comes out of the appliance. You are cooking fatty ingredients. Carefully pour off any excess oil or fat from the pan and then continue cooking.
The pan still contains greasy residues from previous use. White smoke is caused by greasy residues heating up in the pan. Always clean the pan and the basket thoroughly after every use.
Breading or coating did not adhere properly to the food. Tiny pieces of airborne breading can cause white smoke. Firmly press breading or coating to food to ensure it sticks.
Marinade, liquid or meat juices are splattering in the rendered fat or grease. Pat food dry before placing it in the basket.
My display shows “E1”. The device is broken/ defect. Call the Philips service hot line or contact the Consumer Care Center in your country.
