The Philips Avance Digital Turbostar Airfryer basket holds 1.8 lb. (0.8 kg) of food. That is equivalent to about 1 bag of frozen french fries.

You can cook enough for 2 persons. The Airfryer Grill Pan Accessory, not included, will hold two 4″ (103 mm) diameter hamburgers. But, for hamburgers and fries you have to cook the fries separately from the hamburgers. At 20 minutes for the fries and 15 minutes for the meat, it takes approx. 30-40 minutes to cook the entire meal.

The Philips Avance Digital Turbostar Airfryer also features automatic shutoff to prevent burning food and to save energy.


To make cleanup fast and easy the nonstick coated drawer and QuickClean food basket with removable mesh are dishwasher safe.

  • Small capacity for the price, great for one person, but takes two batches to cook entire meal for two e.g. hamburgers plus fries.
  • Temperature control is in 25 degree increments, so if recipe calls for a certain temperature you need to cook at the nearest 25 degree setting and increase/decrease time to compensate.

Philips Avance Digital Turbostar Airfryer – Who Is It For?

The Philips Avance Digital Turbostar Airfryer is for one or two persons looking for a convenient way to cook healthier food for themselves. If you love fried food but want to reduce fat and calories then air frying is a good way to achieve that.

This is a compact air fryer so it is good for students, single people or couples living in dorm or small apartment. For small quantities of food it works well and quickly enough compared to deep frying.

However, for larger quantities or more variety in meal choices I would recommend a larger air fryer like the GoWISE USA G22731 Air Fryer XL 5.8 Qt or even a multi-function cooker with air fry capability, like the Ninja Foodi | The Pressure Cooker that Crisps.

Philips Avance Digital Turbostar Airfryer – Final Opinion

The Philips Avance Digital Turbostar Airfryer is compact with a small size ideal for single persons or couples. However, its small size and lack of accessories leads to extra cooking time.

  2. This turbostar airfryer is a good technological advancement in making life easy. The convenience and reduction in oil quantity required in frying will encourage conventional use of this appliance. And the fact that it can accommodate a good quantity with limited oil makes it healthy,and the risk of getting oil splash or burn using gas burner is no more.

    1. Hi Chris,

      Thanks for your great comments.

      The Philips Avance Digital Turbostar Airfryer and other air fryers are indeed much safer appliances than other conventional fryers. Less oil means less chance of a fire or getting burns due to hot oil.

      It is a fantastic appliance to have in a dorm or small apartment. Some people use it in their RV or camper. Works wherever there is access to an electrical outlet.


  3. Wow! This is very informative. Cannot believe what I just read.

    ”Air is the new oil”

    I’m damn tired of using inorganic oil to fry my foods. Although it’s readily available everywhere, it does not deliver to health result.

    The Phillips airfryer makes use of turbo technology to fry foods. Foods become softer on the inside. I think I will check this out later when I have the money. But it looks like this airfryer can only fry crispy foods like cheese and potatoes. 

    Can it fry other foods?

    1. Hi,

      Thanks for taking time to leave your comments and great question.

      The Philips Avance Digital Turbostar Airfryer has presets for not only potatoes but also meat, fish, and poultry. 

      It can also be manually set for other delicious food like vegetables, seafood, dill pickles, plantain, etc. 

      How about desserts? There are recipes on the internet for things like cupcakes, lava cake, coconut pie, and lots more.

      And if you like even more variety, check out this amazing appliance:
