Where do you buy the warranty don't see it
I picked up mine on the last deal and was able to add the warranty at the time of checking out at the store. See attached screenshot. I bought the same day.

I just got the Philips HD9650/96 XXL digital air fryer but I'm yet to open the box ( I got it for from eBay for around $130 as I had around $200 in eBay bucks) and was wondering whether the Philips is much better than the numerous "generic" air fryers out there to warrant its hefty price?

I see TV informercial about AirFryer but don't own one and don't exact know how this is different from Gas stove OVEN.
If I have microwave, gas stove with oven, then air fryer is useless right?
You can only use the airfryer as oven right? For things like frozen nuggets, frozen wings, etc?

Pls educate me on this
some versions can act as a an oven (bake/broil). should be better/quicker since the space is smaller. don't think. this version has bake/broil feature

it can also airfry stuff (circulate hot air). your oven can't do that easily

Omg perfect! My air fryer literally fell apart earlier this week, and I've been waiting for a deal!
What's the need for this if you have Gas Range that has oven built in?
I have https://www.lg.com/us/kitchen/dis...gas-ranges

basically Air fryer is a stand alone Oven right? Many use this if they don't own any gas range?

Airfryers are more like convection ovens. They circulate hot air in a smaller space which cooks faster and crispier for less oil, less power, faster, and less heat than an oven (since it's not trying to heat a large space). It won't ever be as crispy as frying in a deep fryer or a pan, but it's healthier and definitely crispier than any microwave, oven, or toaster oven.

I love ours, I've probably gotten more value out of it than our Instant Pot. Just note that these things are HUGE, since only half the space fits food, the other half is the heating/air circulation system. Takes up a decent amount of counter space, and too tall to fit in most cabinets.

I bought this same fryer in July from Best Buy when it was on sale, I think for the same price.

It did a great job until about December when the Teflon coating on the basket started coming off. I always sprayed non stick spray in the basket before adding foods, but my guess is that the coating just wasn't very high quality.

It may work for you if you're not planing on using it frequently, but if you are intending on using the fryer a lot, I would look for something that is better quality.

I like my air fryer. I use it probably a couple times a week. Only a family of 3 but it's great for fries or nuggets, mozzarella sticks. My only complaint, frozen food products dont have instructions for air fryers. Or atleast i havent seen them. The manual that came with my power fryer xl did have instructions but you have to be careful. A lot depends on the amount you put in. Especially with French fries that wont have one layer like a traditional oven.

Just another note an air fryer wont replace a traditional deep fryer. It definitely is not as good, nor can you do wet battered foods in it. I do like it for the ease of use. Cleanup is a snap compared to having to deal with oil
I have this exact fryer and have done buffalo cauliflower with wet batter. Just have to drip the excess batter before you throw them in. The grated design allows any batter to fall off below and make cleaning super easy.

Is it legal to have a device running at 1800W? I thought most home circuits are rated at 15A and could only safely bump out 1875W for a short amount of time.
agree..you dont want any thing above 1500 watts or 12amp to run household. otherwise you will be teipping circuit

I don't think the item falls under the warranty terms

Fair points. However, you can do wet battered foods, as well. For example I have:
1. preheat the air fryer for 5-10 minutes
2. wet batter a piece of chicken
3. put the piece in the basket
4. spritz with a "PAM"
5. fry x minutes
6. flip and spritz the other side

How does it taste though? Is it close to a deep fryer or no?

I suggest you pick up the warranty on these things. I believe its like $9 for 2 years at Best Buy.
9 dollars is almost 20% of the product though
