Comparing the capacity, performance, and consumption
Using a deep fryer
- Capacity: The frying container of common electric fryers has a capacity between 800g-2kg. In some cases, they can hold up to 3kg.
- Performance: The performance of fryers ranges between 1400-2100 watts. More rarely up they can reach to 3000 watts.
- Consumption: As a rule of thumb, a fryer with a wattage of 2000 requires about 2kwH per hour.
Using an oven
- Capacity: Ovens have the largest capacity, with 54 litres for the standard model, which can vary up to 76 litres for larger volumes.
- Performance: For ovens, it is important to pay attention to the energy efficiency class of the appliance, because a baking process always consumes a lot of energy.
- Consumption: At a high-temperature setting, such as 200°C degrees, an oven will consume approximately 1,500 to 2,000 watts per hour†.
Using an air fryer
- Capacity: Air fryers typically have a smaller capacity, between 1.5 and 2 litres. The four models of the Philips Airfryer, serve all needs: from the super compact essential collection with 800g capacity to the XXL Airfryer with 1400g, which is also suitable for 4-5-person households.
- Performance: One of the advantages of the air fryer is the even heat distribution in the frying basket, meaning your food is cooked particularly evenly and efficiently. Also, when looking at hot air fryers vs. fryers, the former is gentler to the environment: less oil, less fat disposal.
- Consumption: Regular air fryers usually have between 1400-2100 watts of power.
