This question is about a Philips HD9228 air fryer.

What is the 3rd symbol (C in the screenshot) on this air fryer? The manual doesn't say anything about it. I'm assuming it's a shrimp tempura, or a chicken lollipop.

  • A - frozen french fries
  • B - raw/thawed french fries
  • C - ???
  • D - chicken drumstick
  • E - spring roll
  • F - muffin

    I know you're right for E, but it will always look a LOT like two sticks of butter to me. Commented Nov 2, 2020 at 14:49
  • As tempura is battered, it would be difficult to make an in air fryer. You would need something covered in a crumb-like coating, like maybe coconut shrimp. (and it'd probably be more curly than the pork chop)

  • I’m glad SOMEONE asked this question because I’ve always wondered that myself but was just too lazy to ask. Maybe next someone should ask how you’re supposed to cook cupcakes in an air fryer?

    @WesSayeed There is a baking pan accessory for the HD9228. I suppose you put the muffin cups in it. Maybe you might need to use the splatter-proof lid too.

According to Philips on Twitter, it's a pork chop.

    The next question I suppose is why you would want to fry a pork chop. But then I'm not sure why you'd want to fry a muffin either. Commented Nov 2, 2020 at 20:10

    @AndrewRay I've had fried pork before, it's not at all uncommon, though maybe not in porkchop form. The muffin though - that's just baffling... Commented Nov 2, 2020 at 21:04

    I was going to guess steak or pork chop. :-) Good to have the actual instructions available. Commented Nov 2, 2020 at 21:36

    @AndrewRay, air fryers don't really fry things, they do sort of a modified baking.
