Performance and Capacity
Philips hd9230 air fryer.
Your results using either machine will depend on if you use it under the optimal conditions. For example, do you fill the container to capacity or do you loosely place the food in the frying basket. Doing the latter will result in you having more evenly cooked food.
Both air fryers are capable of reaching a maximum temperature of 390 degrees. This is perfect to get that crispy golden brown crispy coating and fully cooked interior with a variety of foods. Both air fryers have a digital control panel where you can set the temperature, timer (up to 60 minutes for both), and even save the settings as presets for your favorite foods.
The capacity for the Philips hd9230 is 1.8 pounds while the hd9240 has a 2.65 pound capacity. Based on the reviews I’ve read through, the hd9230 would be better for a 1 to 3 person household, if your household is larger than that, then you will want the hd9240.
They both share the rapid air technology which basically is the process that circulates hot air around quickly.
Overall the performance, as long as you follow the directions, will be solid. But there are some caveats, as some of the more candid reviews might suggest “air fryers ain’t a deep fryer replacement”. It will be close to traditionally fried foods minus the added calories. If you understand that, then you will be satisfied with your purchase just like the majority of the customers.

More than Just Air Fryers…
I am a big fan of small appliances that can perform multiple functions. Both of these air fryers are multi-cookers. They are capable of grilling, roasting and baking.
Both of these air fryers carry a standard 12-month warranty that starts on the day of purchase.
Ease of Use
Both machines are simple to use. The digital interface is large with contrasting colors (background and characters.) They both come with a retractable cord and dishwasher safe parts for easy clean up.
Both come with the same accessories. You get a recipe/instruction book, cooking rack, and frying basket. The rack allows you more flexibility in how you arrange the food.
