Space saving is a key dilemma in modern kitchens, so during the design of we rethought the product architecture to improve its integration onto the kitchen counter top. We have slimmed down the sides of the product to reduce the footprint and also lowered and angled the top. With direct access to the setting of the appliance, Airfryer is even easier and more intuitive to use. The footprint is smaller but still allows to fry up to 4 servings (800g) of fries. Most importantly we have kept the iconic shape of the Airfryer, which is what makes it so unique. As kitchens become open spaces where you share time with your family and friends, Airfryer is a product you will always be proud to display.
After a long investigation we were able to improve the airflow technology further. The new TurboStar technology swirls hot air continuously through the whole cooking chamber, resulting in even heat distribution throughout the entire basket. All food is exposed to this constant, circulating heat, so cooked through simultaneously. The result: evenly fried food - with no turning needed - even when food is piled up. In addition to the heated air flow, powerful direct heat from above quickly crisps the food on the outside, for delicious, golden-brown results every time. TurboStar technology cooks fried food 50% more evenly (measured vs Airfryer without TurboStar with frozen fries, evaluated on browning and doneness

Complying with all applicable standards and regulations, user is protected from harm and the design safeguards against unintentional use. Color, material and finishing is a very important part in the design process. We have used PP outside and Stainless steel with none sticky coating for the inner cooking chamber.
