Why Buy a Philips Air Fryer…?
Fried foods are the guilty-pleasure I indulge in most regularly. And no offense to the big brand fried-food joints, but they just don’t compare to the deliciousness of homemade fried foods.
Air fryers are definitely intriguing machines. They offer a way to enjoy fried food without all of those added empty calories. These Philips models claim to reduce the fat in fries by up to 70%. In this test, they used canola oil. This results are according to actual laboratory test! The Philips brand is definitely the leader in the air fryer market.
How Do They work…?
Air fryers are kind of a modern marvel. Because of the way the air is circulated around the inner pot (like a tiny convection oven), little to no oil is required to obtain that delicious and addictive (to me at least) crunchy exterior. Not only does this process make your fried food healthier, it also saves you money on frying oil.
Size and Appearance
I like the look and design of both machines. In a world of basic, unattractive machines, they offer an alternative. Both machines are pod shaped. This shape might sound awkward and clunky, but it works somehow. It has a very ambiguous look. Whereas other deep fryers look like “deep fryers”, these units are more inconspicuous.
There are some differences in the look of these two machines. The tops of the machines are slightly differently but that difference is subtle. The most obvious difference you’ll notice is the interface. The hd9230 has a digital interface while the hd9220 has an analog dial to control the timer and temperature. With the digital interface, the hd9230 is the more modern looking air fryer.
Both machines measure 15.4 x 15.4 x 14.9 inches.

You will enjoy equal performance regardless of the model you select. Both use rapid air technology, which basically means the air is circulated with speed and accuracy. This helps the food cook fast.
Neither machine is designed to just cook fried foods, although that’s probably the main reason you want to buy one. Both are capable of baking, roasting, and even grilling. Both air fryers can reach a maximum temperature of 390-degrees. The hd9220 has a max timer of 30 minutes while the hd9230 has a 60 minute max timer.
The cooking baskets for both machines have a 1.8 pound capacity.
Note: After doing some research I discovered that there are some limitations to using these kinds of machines. For fried food, you will need to use a wet batter or even panko breadcrumbs. A dry flour coating will not work.
Both of these Philips air fryers come with a 12-month warranty. This is pretty much standard for a lot of consumer electronics.
Ease of Use
The Philips hd9230/26 has a digital control panel that makes it easier and more convenient to use than the hd9220/26. With the digital control you can make presets for your favorite foods. Both models have dishwasher safe parts which makes cleanup really simple.
Both machines come with everything that you need to get started. You get the cooking basket, the same cookbook, and access to the Philips air fryer app. The app gives you access to guides and even support.
