Having a hard time in the kitchen? Worry less as Philips introduces three new kitchen innovations for fool-proof cooking, designed to help consumers create healthy and tasty meals easily in the comfort of their own homes.

No matter the occasion, the Philips Deluxe Collection Multicooker HD2145/62 is designed to provide a smart, efficient, and convenient experience with minimal supervision, high quality meals can be prepared up to 6 times faster without compromising on taste.

The Philips Airfryer is recognised as the number 1 Airfryer globally, with over 7 million units sold worldwide. The latest additions to this cutting-edge range: the Philips Avance Collection Airfryer XXL and Philips Viva Collection Airfryer. Both promise to deliver the same healthy goodness but with lesser fat featuring Philips’ new fat removal technology.

Designed with families in mind, the Philips Avance Collection Airfryer XXL HD9654/91 makes whipping up a sumptuous family-sized meal an easy feat all thanks to its XXL capacity that fits an entire chicken or 1.4kg of fresh fries at a go.

No pre-heating is required, so that meals can be made quicker than ever.
