Technology helps make things so much easier for you. And that’s exactly what the Philips Essential Airfryer XL Connected is created to achieve. The connected airfryer was launched mid-last year. You don’t even need to know how to cook. We’ll tell you why when you read on.
First, the Philips Essential Airfryer XL Connected allows you to remotely track, monitor and control the cooking process from your smartphone with the NutriU App. Hence this airfryer model has “Connected” in its name. Download the NutriU App on your Android or iOS device. The step-by-step instructions are easy to follow.
Next, the NutriU App features 2000+ recipes You can easily search for Airfryer recipes in the recipe finder, share your culinary creations and get ideas and inspiration from the community of some 91,000 monthly users.
They are also categorised under Breads & Buns, One Pot Meals, Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Chicken dishes, Potato dishes, Fish dishes, Dessert and Vegetarian. You get to bookmark the recipe as well as copy the ingredients required into a shopping list within the app. And if you are a stickler on the nutritional values of your meal, the recipe shows that as well indicating the amount of carbohydrates, protein and fat in a glance. Or expand it for more information.
And if you are in a rush for time, you can also search for recipes based on prep time. It is so user-friendly even for the noob in the kitchen like me. You become a chef at your fingertips.
What is especially useful for me is that the recipes come with step-by-step instructions including the option to send the cooking temperature and time to the airfryer from the app. So simple as long as you can read and understand what you are reading.
Philips Domestic Appliances observed an exponential increase in NutriU App downloads in Singapore, from 2020 to 2021, during the height of the pandemic.
