Settings The table below helps you to select the basic settings for the ingredients you want to prepare. Note: Keep in mind that these settings are indications. As ingredients differ in origin, size, shape as well as brand, we cannot guarantee the best setting for your ingredients. Because the Rapid Air technology instantly reheats the air inside the appliance, pulling the pan briefly out of the appliance during cooking barely disturbs the process. Tips -- Smaller ingredients usually require a slightly shorter cooking time than larger ingredients. -- A larger amount of ingredients only requires a slightly longer cooking time, a smaller amount of ingredients only requires a slightly shorter cooking time. -- Shake smaller ingredients halfway through the cooking time to redistribute them. This improves the end result and helps to prevent unevenly cooked ingredients. -- Add some oil to fresh potatoes for a crispy result. Fry your ingredients in the airfryer within a few minutes after you added the oil. -- Do not prepare extremely greasy ingredients such as sausages in the airfryer. -- Snacks that can be prepared in an oven can also be prepared in the airfryer. -- The optimal amount for preparing crispy fries is 750 grams. -- Use pre-made dough to prepare filled snacks quickly and easily. Pre-made dough also requires a shorter cooking time than home-made dough. -- Place a baking tray or oven dish in the airfryer basket if you want to bake a cake or quiche or if you want to fry fragile ingredients or filled ingredients. -- You can also use the airfryer to reheat ingredients. To reheat ingredients, set the temperature to 150°C for up to 10 minutes. Min-max amount (g) Cooking time (min.)

Troubleshooting This chapter summarises 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 for a list of frequently asked questions or contact the Consumer Care Centre in your country. Problem Possible cause Solution The appliance does not work. The appliance is not plugged in. Put the mains plug in an earthed wall socket. The appliance is not switched on. Press the power on/off button to switch on the appliance. The set temperature is too low. Press the temperature increase button to the set the required temperature (see section ‘Settings’ in chapter ‘Using the appliance’). Making home-made fries For the best results, we advise you to use pre-baked (e.g. frozen) fries. If you want to make home-made fries, follow the steps below. 1Peel the potatoes and cut them into sticks. 2Soak the potato sticks in a bowl for at least 30 minutes, take them out and dry them with kitchen paper. 3Pour ½ tablespoon of olive oil in a bowl for 300g (for 1200g use 1½ tablespoon), put the sticks on top and mix until the sticks are coated with oil. 4Remove the sticks from the bowl with your fingers or a kitchen utensil so that excess oil stays behind in the bowl. Put the sticks in the basket. Note: Do not tilt the bowl to put all the sticks in the basket in one go, to prevent excess oil from ending up on the bottom of the pan. The ingredients fried with the appliance are not done. The cooking time Press the timer increase button is too short. to set the required cooking time (see section ‘Settings’ in chapter ‘Using the appliance’). The amount of ingredients in the basket is too big. Put smaller batches of ingredients in the basket. Smaller batches are fried more evenly. Do not exceed the MAX indication or the maximum amount in the table. Problem Possible cause Solution The ingredients are fried unevenly in the appliance. Certain types of ingredients need to be shaken halfway through the cooking time. Ingredients that lie on top of or across each other (e.g. fries) need to be shaken halfway through the cooking time. See section ‘Settings’ in chapter ‘Using the appliance’. Fried snacks are not crispy when they come out of the appliance. You used a type Use oven snacks or lightly brush of snacks meant some oil onto the snacks for a to be prepared in crispier result. a traditional deep fryer. I cannot slide the drawer into the appliance properly. There are too many ingredients in the basket. Do not fill the basket beyond the MAX indication. The pan and the basket are not placed correctly. Make sure the pan and basket are placed correctly. You are preparing greasy ingredients. When you fry greasy ingredients in the appliance, a large amount of oil will leak into the pan. The oil produces white smoke and the pan may heat up more than usual. This does not affect the appliance or the end result. The pan still contains grease residues from previous use. White smoke is caused by grease heating up in the pan. Make sure you clean the pan properly after each use. You did not soak the potato sticks properly before you fried them. Soak the potato sticks in a bowl for at least 30 minutes, take them out and dry them with kitchen paper. You did not use the right potato type. Make sure you use fresh potatoes and a firm type of potatoes. Fresh fries are not crispy when they come out of the appliance. The crispiness of the fries depends on the amount of oil and water in the fries. Make sure you dry the potato sticks properly before you add the oil. Cut the potato sticks smaller and add slightly more oil for a crispier result. The message ‘Er’ appears on the display. An error has occurred. Have the appliance checked by a service centre authorised by Philips. The time and temperature indications change automatically, even though I do not press any buttons. There is moisture Make sure you dry the control panel with a cloth after you have on the control panel. cleaned it. White smoke comes out of the appliance. Fresh fries are fried unevenly in the appliance.
