I’m a chip monster. Like all chips. Especially the root chips: taro, yam, beet etc and I prefer to make over purchasing. So having fresh, crispy and salty chips is like the best. And get this, I’m not deep frying in oil or baking them. WHAT’S left – I’m AIRFRYING them in my cool Airfryer.
So a few months ago we did a cross Canada tour with Philips highlighting fun, healthy recipes using some of their best counter top appliances (see pasta machine) and this one was definitely a crowd and family favourite. On tour I made countless things: Roasted vegetable skewers, GF brownies with zucchini, Fish, GF chicken wings, frites and more. The main attraction and why people love it is that you get crispy and well cooked food without the addition of oils. SO crispy wings that aren’t deep fried!
HOW: With their TurboStar rapid air technology, foods crisp and “fry” using lots of evenly distributed hot air. Crispy on outside and moist inside. The main basket is also large enough to prepare a meal for 4 and barely takes up any counter space. Also with the click of a button it goes from being dirty to handwashed or dishwasher safe in minutes. And take it from me, I hate things that are hard to clean – to the point where I won’t support or buy it.
There’s also a free APP with tons of recipes that you and your household can enjoy and with supervision this could be a fun way to get the mini humans involved in kitchen duty.
Here’s some highlights on how it works!
- Easy to dial where you control temp and cooking time
- With a few clicks, everything disassembles and ready to clean and re-use
- Presets for fav dishes: Fries (frozen), wings, fish and meat.
- Digital display for easy reading
- Philips Airfryer app – so many tasty things!
- Can work as dehydrator on low setting: Chips, dried vegetables and spices
- Feel good about cooking with less to no oil added.
Easy to use and clean basket. We also just made a quick batch of apple chips/crisps. Using your mandolin or slicing thinly. Put into basket. “Fry” at 375 for 12 minutes – check halfway and give a shake. EAT.
SUPER CRISPY POTATO CHIPS
1/2 sweet potato and 1/2 russet potato – sliced thin or using mandolin (BE CAREFUL)
1/2 teaspoon organic coconut oil
sea salt and pepper (cayenne is yummy too)
To do: Toss with oil and seasoning. Place in basket. Cook for 5 minute increments to make sure not to over cook. Give basket a shake each time too, to allow chips to crisp/cook evenly. Eat and dip. THAT IS IT!
