I think this is the 5th or even 6th one I've bought now. All as presents cos it's SO freakin' awesome! Read my earlier review for why.
David, South Africa. 9 May 2014
Very nice cooking option, cooks Chips, steaks and chops perfectly. saves on the mess and inconvenience of deep fat frying whilst improving on health, easy to clean and a perfect size for two people.

Yet another Great product from Philips.
I did not think it was as good as the reviews I have read, and its not. IT'S EVEN BETTER!
This product will change the way you prepare food forever. Making fried food that's tasty and healthy has never been easier!

A MUST HAVE for a small family. We literally make fries, burgers, savouries etc. Supper is such a breeze. It's so easy to clean. Bought it for my mom's birthday and I'm the favorite child now, so go figure

Unbelievable prices and high speed delivery. You guys are unbeatable in South African online shopping
AJ, South Africa. 30 April 2017
Excellent machine, I use it every day.
Taryn, South Africa. 20 January 2016
Best chips ever! Used it for the first time last night and was super impressed. Easy to use and clean, and the chips came out fantastic - crispy outside, soft in the middle.
Only disappointment is that it did not come with the food separator as indicated in the features above.
Looking forward to many more yummy meals!
Marius, South Africa. 10 May 2017
The machine works as advertised. However, I could tell that the box was opened before and the machine had a bit of damage on the plastic on the back of the machine. I paid for a brand-new machine, not an unboxed deal. Strike one for Takealot.
Shrian, South Africa. 24 May 2016
This is probably one of the most pivotal appliances added to my kitchen.
I don't believe that my wife has yet grasped what you can do with this machine.
To date (it's only been 6 days), I've tried McCain's slap chips, tandoori fried chicken, southern fried chicken (coated with batter), chicken nuggets, soya sausages, steak and lamb chops.
All of them have come out fantastic. Not sure how, but the airfryer does not dry food out at all.
The steaks/chicken/chops are all lovely and juicy. I have yet to use a single drop of oil in it yet.
Saves time, electricity, and even oil!
This is without a doubt one of the best additions to my kitchen.
If you're considering buying it, buy it, you will never regret it.
Simone, South Africa. 22 September 2017
Excellent product. It does what it says and it does it fast. We've made burgers, chips, chicken schnitzels, fish and meatballs in it so far and we've only had it for a week.
Two downfalls - It's a bit small but big enough for us since we are only 2 people. The fryer basket is a bit difficult to clean but spray a bit of kitchen cleaner on it after you're done frying and it cleans a bit more easily.
Overall we're very happy with our purchase
Siddika, South Africa. 29 October 2015
Excellent.. No other air fryer compares
Janis, South Africa. 12 August 2016
This is simply the BEST item in my kitchen. We use it for everything, and it makes the outside of everything super crispy while being moist and tender inside. 10 out of 10 for 95% of items you will ever need to cook with the taste and consistency of deep fried without the oil.
The only downside is that it may be a little small if you need to prepare for more than one or two people.
I recommend searching for additional recipes and cooking times on the internet so that you can make almost anything in this wonderful cooker - it does come with a lovely recipe book, but you can cook so many other items.
Sarel, South Africa. 6 April 2016
This is a great alternative / Healthier way in Frying food. This fryer is really quick and the food tastes fantastic! Chicken in 20 minutes, Potato chips in 15 minutes. The design is great for looks good in your kitchen. We had to replace the previous one that broke - Totally worth it tho.
Piet, South Africa. 14 July 2016
Werk goed. Maak moeilik skoon.
Zakarieya, South Africa. 14 April 2015
Very good option for the health conscious. The quality is quite nice.
Kennith, South Africa. 26 April 2016
Excellent buy. Good price, exceptional service.
JP, South Africa. 7 November 2016
It has been a week since delivery and we have used the Air fryer every day. Cleaning can be a bit of a challenge, but well worth it. Also, for a family of 3, the portioning is perfect.
Lezel, South Africa. 7 December 2016
Awesome product,so impressed and makes life with a 2 year old much easier when it comes to cooking.
Sisanda, South Africa. 7 April 2016
The idea sounds awesome but it doesn't actually do what it promises. Potatoes don't cook properly, they burn and remain raw on the inside - airfries are worse, they come out burnt every time and yet they're still raw. There's no such thing as frying chips oil-free... not with this machine at least. Disappointing! Back to my trustee food steamer...
Amanda, South Africa. 5 May 2016
This is a winner. Heats up in 3 minutes and cooks perfect chips and fish fingers in only a few minutes!
Mary, South Africa. 26 June 2017
I love this air fryer! It's one of the kitchen appliances I use most often. Great for things I would ordinarily fry, that also don't really justify firing up the regular oven for a small meal, and now I can "air fry" them, making my meals much less oily and therefore much healthier.
Tips for cleaning: 1) clean the non-stick parts with a sponge, 2) Initially, I struggled to clean the basket grill. What does work is to clean the basket grill with a wash up brush like this one: https://www.takealot.com/addis-wash-up-brush/PLID41399079
Brad, South Africa. 11 May 2015
Absolutely brilliant appliance, everyone in my family now owns one after I convinced them just how amazingly it works, this one is for the holiday house, that is 5 units in a family of 5, that is just how brilliant these are. Would never live without one again.
Charmaine, South Africa. 26 May 2016
I bought one for myelf and it is the best appliance i ever bought. I could'nt live without it. I have just bought my daughter one as a wedding gift. She is over the moon.
John, South Africa. 10 May 2017
Great, could not have chosen better....................
Paula, South Africa. 31 May 2016
Brilliant. Very little fuss or bother and the food is so tasty. Saves on the expense of heating up an oven as well.
Nicola, South Africa. 18 August 2017
Lovely product - easy to use and clean. Love the app, but would like some more recipes!
Debbie, South Africa. 12 February 2016
Love this product. One of the best investments we have made. Cannot recommend the Philips Viva Air Fryer enough. You make almost make anything and everything is simply delicious! And of course, great service from Takealot - as always.
Lise, South Africa. 7 January 2016
Best appliance you will ever own. the bigger one is even better for a large family
Andrew, South Africa. 12 May 2017
This was recommended to us by a friend. She uses her airfryer all the time. We found that fish and schnitzels came out wonderfully crisp and very flavoursome. And fast! We tried the chips too. They took much longer than our deep-fat fryer (but were much healthier!). The chips tasted good, but I would only do them in there again if I felt overly health conscious that day. We're looking forward to healthy sausages as our next experiment! (Also, the airfryer is very easy to use. A good purchase.
Eben, South Africa. 7 December 2016
Product works fine but quite expensive for what you get. Mechanical timer quite anachronistic for these days. Does work fine even though it shuts off with about 2-3 minutes remaining on the dial.
Users manual is quite cryptic and limited. Not what I would expect from Philips. Much more user information, operating and cleaning details as well as recipes can be found on the internet and youtube. Philips should also really include the Air Fryer baking tray too which greatly extends the usefulness of the fryer.
Noreen, South Africa. 9 May 2017
I don't know why it took me so long to purchase this Air Fryer. Easy to use and clean. Absolutely wonderful appliance - ideal if cooking for one or two persons. Quick, nutritious meals - 3 minutes for a hot ciabatta roll, lovely potato chips and wedges, CRISPY crumbed chicken (which needed no turning), evenly baked fish....to mention a few.
I know for a fact that my electricity bill will drop as I am not heating a huge oven for small meals. Going to invest in the baking accessory soon.
Marc, South Africa. 7 December 2016
The timer doesn't allow for manual decreasing. So if you set it too high you're going to have to wait it out.
The try that the food sits on isn't non-stick and the catchment area below it isn't the easiest thing to clean either because of the molded design.
The performance of the machine in general is good, I just feel that a few minor elements were overlooked in the design.
Ying, South Africa. 13 May 2015
Awesome appliance!!! Fat free cooking and the food tastes amazing!
Ken, South Africa. 26 December 2016
Works great, just the right size for two people, makes GREAT Chips !!
Aimee, South Africa. 15 November 2017
I love this thing. I wanted one for ages after using it at a friends house to make Spring Rolls which can be a healthy treat if they aren't deep fried. I finally got this one on special for 45% off (never pay full price for this, it is on special often so bide your time).
I haven't used my oven for a week. I have made "Fried chicken", pork chops, sweet potato chips, butternut chips, veggie burgers and crumbed fish in this and I can say with certainty that it was all way better than when done in the oven. It's not exactly like deep frying, but it is great. It also heats up way faster than the oven, and the timer means that you will never forget anything in it and end up with charcoal.
If you have the cash, but the bigger one, but this is great for me and my boyfriend :)
Best investment in a while.
nirvana cassie, South Africa. 22 December 2016
A must have for every kitchen. Works great every single time. Couldn't recommend this product enough.
caron, South Africa. 10 December 2016
A great addition to the healthy kitchen. No fuss cleaning. Crispy chips, tender chicken.
Mike, South Africa. 27 December 2016
Wonderfull appliance. Easy to operate and to clean. Best price by far at takealot.
stuart, South Africa. 17 November 2017
Great product. Easy to use... easy to clean
Bernice, South Africa. 18 September 2017
There is nothing I don't love about this! Crispy food without using any oil or butter. It's truly tasty and super fast to use :) Definitely worth the buy!
Jia, South Africa. 25 July 2017
The service is great, had a little hard time of finding the warehouse though.
Jenne, South Africa. 11 October 2017
Love it - though found the times in the recipe book over-cooked stuff a bit.
