A Healthier Way to Fry with the Airfryer XXL

Do you and your family love fried foods? Do you want to have the same delicious flavours but seek a healthier way to get the distinct taste of fried foods? Today, Malaysians are becoming increasingly conscious about the food we eat. However, many local favourites are deep fried – from ayam goreng berempah to ikan sumbat sambal, making deep frying part and parcel of daily Malaysian cooking. This, in turn, means that for many Malaysians, mealtimes often present a choice between indulging their taste buds or making a responsible choice for their family’s health.
“For parents, the biggest food critics in the family are often among the littlest members, and when the children are great fans of deep fried favourites, adults tend to ‘give in’ to the children’s choices. While many parents do try to ensure meals are home-cooked for greater control of ingredients and quality, many busy Malaysians often prioritise convenience when choosing meals. However, quick mass-produced food can be high in calories, fats, sugar and salt. We can see the health impact, with 47.7% of Malaysian adults being overweight or obese, whereby excess weight is a significant risk factor for cardiovascular disease, Malaysia’s top cause of death year after year.1,2 There is indeed a pressing need to help Malaysians prepare healthier meals with greater convenience,” said Mr Muhammad Ali Jaleel, Country Manager, Philips Malaysia.

“At Philips, we combine consumer insights and innovative product development – offering consumers a healthier way to fry by removing up to 50% of fat from food, and greater convenience by allowing them to cook more food at one go, with our biggest Airfryer capacity to date. We understand that parents, especially mums, take pride in serving healthy, delicious home-cooked meals, and we want to help them achieve this more easily through our innovative appliances,” he added.
Bigger – Cook more with great results

A must-have for preparing yummy yet healthier food at home, the Philips Viva Collection Airfryer XXL (HD9630/99) – the latest Airfryer from Philips, takes the hassle out of cooking for all in the family. Its extra-large size is designed with families in mind, so you can easily prepare enough for everyone. No more cooking in batches just to satisfy everyone’s appetites! With the biggest Airfryer capacity to date, it can easily handle a whole chicken or up to 1.4kg of fries for up to 6 portions at one go.
