Please do not use cold-pressed oil as it burns at high temperatures.

How to use oil in the Airfryer

If you want to add oil to your food with the Philips Airfryer, you need to put it on the ingredients before you start air frying, not into the Airfryer itself.

To add oil to home-made potato dishes (such as French fries), follow the steps below:

  1. Peel the potatoes and cut them into the preferred shape.
  2. Soak the potatoes in a bowl with water for at least 30 minutes, take them out and dry them with kitchen paper.
  3. Put half a tablespoon of oil into a bowl. Put the potatoes in the bowl and mix until the potatoes are coated with it.
  4. Using a kitchen utensil or your hands, put the potatoes in the your Airfryer's basket.

To add oil to larger ingredients (such as drumsticks or meat):

  1. Dry the outside of the food with kitchen paper, if necessary.
  2. Lightly brush oil onto the outside of the food or use oil spray. Only coat with 1 layer. Excess oil will drip into the pan during the hot air frying process.

To add oil to home-made breaded dishes:

Either mix some oil with your breadcrumbs before you bread the food or spray/brush some oil onto the breaded food afterwards.

Tip: You can also marinate meat or poultry instead of brushing oil onto the outside.

Note: Adding oil is only necessary when you prepare home-made dishes from fresh ingredients that have not been pre-treated, such as freshly peeled potatoes or unmarinated chicken. Adding oil creates a crispy layer on untreated food and improves its taste.
