Which is the best air fryer uk?
Before we get right into the meat and bones of this review about the Philips HD9220 air fryer, you might want tovisit our top 10 best air fryers list. This is updated each month with the most up to date information.
Phillips airfryer 9220:
So why are we writing about this particular air fryer?
Well for a start it is made by the trusted brand Philips. One of the most popular air fryer brands following closely brands such as Tefal (actifry), Breville and a few others.
Fry, bake, grill or roast – the options are almost unlimited!
Is an Air Fryer really healthier?
Yes absolutely! 23% (verified) fewer calories than using a traditional deep fat fryer.
Think about it. You don’t have to use any oil if you don’t want to as it still cooks delicious food. If you are cooking without oil or even a small amount of oil then the food doesn’t soak up any of the oil making it healthier.
There is also a drip tray that catches any oils or fats that oooze out during cooking too.
How big is the Philips airfryer HD9220 ?
Dimensions of product (LxWxH) – 287 x 315 x 384 mm
So if you equate this to “roughly” the size of a school ruler, or size 8 or 9 adult shoes, or even similar in size to your old deep fat fryer you wouldn’t be too far off the mark (very roughly speaking). So it will happily sit on your kitchen worktop, and the two colour options means you can choose the most appropriate one.

Prices vary all the time. At one time you could have spent close to £200 on one of these air fryers, but nowadays the prices are closer to half that and can fluctuate on a regular basis.

Switch off, plug in and connect to the best gaming chairs 2018 has on offer. Your next best gaming experience starts and ends right here.
Gamers – are you ready?
Comfort, style and the need to be totally immersed in your game is all that matters. Truth be known nothing else matters when your game is on. You need to be there in the zone and it’ll never be quite right if you’re sitting “un”-comfortably.
Before we carry on, we wanted to let you know our top rated gaming chair. The one that shone out best for us was the CTF Pro from Cherry Tree Furniture.
For this project we decided to push the boat out and order 15 different gaming chairs so that we could scrutinize every last one of them.
What is a gaming chair?
It’s a super comfortable chair that allows you to sit back in sheer comfort and attempts to “put” you into the game by filling your senses with audio and sensory vibrations from the game.
Our Best Rated Gaming Chair
For those of you looking for the best performance paired with the best price then look no further. Out of all our testing our current “favourite” recommendation is the CTF Pro from Cherry Tree Furniture.
When it calls the chair can vibrate, perhaps in time to an explosion, or a drive over a rumble strip or when being shot at.
Wireless connectivity is one such feature and makes the game play even more pleasurable.
Just be aware that….
There are a few variations on what manufacturers feel is a gaming chair…
Here is our understanding:
1: Beanbags shaped like a chair (super comfy)
2: “Proper” gaming chairs with options for accessories and immersive sound experiences
3: Ordinary chairs that look kind of funky – perhaps like a sports car seat, but which may also have a range of “useful” functions
In the news:
A new router has been released for gamers who need to best.. It’s the Asus’ ROG Rapture GT-AC5300 router. The Straits Times has an interesting article on it mentioning it’s 8 Gigabit ethernet ports (to keep speed up to it’s best, despite improvements in WiFi). Check it out here..
Some manufacturers class a gaming chair as a fully immersed experience with all the bells and whistles but at the “lesser” end of the range are, well basically chairs that are nothing more than that.
At the lesser end you will find what are essentially office chairs that look a little bit more funky in their design. For example, they might look like a car seat, or a racing car sports “bucket” seat coupled with the obligatory must have all important roof “stripe”.
At the higher end you get to enjoy wireless connectivity, 2.1 surround sound, chair vibrations, swivel chairs and so much more.
So that said, these variations have been produced to handle a wide variety of budgets. You can find gaming chairs for well under £50 and obviously upwards in price.
After we had all used these chairs for 4 weeks (along with plenty of us enlisting the help of our children in these tests!), we had quickly managed to whittle down some clear winners based on a number of factors:
We also looked at what features they had, among which we got to enjoy testing things such as:
Deep rumbling bass subwoofers
Multi player connectivity
Folding chairs to take up less room (nice touch!)
Funky looking – how “sick” is it (Uk slang.. I know.. I know)
Quality of instructions
Ease of setting up
Restricted to one console or suitable for all consoles
Suitable for all user sizes
These are what helped us score each chair and produce this list of our best top 10 chairs for gamers.
For all intents and purposes this is an excellent chair, as long as you’re not too tall.
Anyone who is taller than about 5′ 6″ up to 5ft 8in might find it a touch uncomfortable with the headrest not being in alignment. Along with what we feel are a few “minor” build quality issues these are the only two “real” niggles.
Other than that it is just brilliant! Perfect for most kids and many adult gamers.
X Rocker have built an enviable reputation for being some of the best in the industry.
Could this be the best console gaming chair?
Read on to discover the rest of our top 10 and make your own mind up.
Dimension wise you are looking at 57.4 x 43.6 x 37 cm.
When you open the packaging you get a 3.5mm audio cable and the chair.
It has a nice tough Black faux leather finish to it which feels like it will stand the test of time.
Also comes with access to their UK call centre for any specialist help you might need.
Perfect audio reproduction with the two speakers built into the upper section of the chair- for that brilliant immersive experience that comes with a chair like this.
Compatible with all known consoles. The chair connects to your TV/Monitor’s “audio out” sockets, and the other end of the audio wire connects to the audio in socket on your chair. This is by way of a 3.5mm cable. If your TV’s audio out is anything other than that you may need an adapter.
The cable above (Click to view the cable on Amazon, it costs around £2.50) is for if your audio out is RCA. Many TV’s will simply have a standard 3.5mm jack audio out though so the supplied cable will be fine.
Suffice to say that any X Rocker is usually going to be good. They are leaders for a reason and by and large most of their chairs are pretty solid choices to consider.
Finally if you just want to sit in your chair and watch Youtube on your phone or tablet you can do that too. You could even cable the tablet to the chair speakers to enhance the listening experience.. would be handy if you’re trying a bit of Karaoke.. “a La Gamer chair style”!
Just remember that although it is well made, once your child grows they may want a larger one. On a side note the audio reproduction is never going to be a state of the art audio sensation but it is adequate enough for most things.
There are quite a few adult gaming bean bags on the market too (take a look here) which would obviously get a lot more use, but for kids rooms the i-eX Rookie is perfect.
Clearly it’s a bean bag but a bean bag that is shaped to provide more support for your neck and back and helps provide a great gaming position.
I’d just like to point out that my son is quite heavy handed in everything he does. Our sofa is used as a springboard / adventure park more times than I care to mention, despite several warnings. This chair has been a bit of a godsend and to be honest it’s his new “best thing”.
We popped it onto the floor in his bedroom and with a little adjustment of the monitor he stayed pretty quiet for a long time.
Later he came down and said “that chair is sick daddy”… sick? I said? Yes he smiled, “sick”.
Clearly Uk slang meaning “brilliant” 🙂
So our summary is that the i-eX Rookie is the ideal child’s gaming chair (and dare we say it even a few adults too!)
Great looking, and a major improvement in your average computer chair. This one makes you feel like you are sitting behind the wheel of a 1000 horsepower set of wheels, ready and waiting for your command.
The appeal with this chair is it can be used for every day office or other desk work. Then when the office work is done, it’s time to kick up a gear and get into racing mode – or fighting mode – or challenge mode – or whatever gaming mode you want to.
360 degree rotation
Lumbar support for longer comfort levels
Holds up to 120kg (18.8 stones) in weight
Heavy duty castor wheels
Height from seat back to floor: 110 to 120cm. Height from seat to floor: 47 to 57 cm. Seat back height x seat width: 80 x 53 cm. Seat depth x seat width: 51 x 51 cm. Height From floor to Armrest: 68 to 78 cm.
This unit is easy to assemble. It comes with a supplied allen key and instructions.
If your budget can afford a premium product then this is a definite worthy contender. The GT Omega pro is many gamers’ first choice in chairs. However note that it also serves as a BRILLIANT orthopaedic supportive office chair, so you could it to make sure you always have the best seat in the office.
Usually closer to £90, at the time of our testing this was priced at just under £40 (a superb price!). It’s devastatingly comfy and for the price we were left laughing before sitting down for the testing stage.
So joking aside what did we think to it?
The stitch work was second to none.
The shape is really good, in so much that it supports your neck really well when laying back for some serious gaming time.
It’s got double stitching and double zips for strength.
The material is easy to wipe clean, so easy to keep hygienic during hot sticky summers.
