The GoWise 8-in-1 air fryer uses a Rapid Air Circulating System to prepare food fast and with a lot less oil than a deep-fryer.
Using hot air to circulate around the food from all directions, it ensures the food gets cooked evenly and crispy on the outside and stays moist and succulent on the inside.

GoWise USA Air Fryer Uses
According to GoWise you can use their 8-in-1 Air Fryer to make anything from fries to cakes. However to bake a cake or any (semi-)liquid foods you need to buy a special pan which comes at an extra cost.
Aside from cake you can use the GoWise to prepare any foods that can be fried including French fries, chicken wings, burger patties, fish and drumsticks. These foods can all be prepared with the pan and basket included, so no extra accessories are needed.
The capacity of the air fryer is 2.5 qrt which translates to 4 portions of French fries or 4-5 chicken wings.
The GoWise air fryer can NOT be used to fry a whole turkey. You can however cut up turkey in smaller parts and then air fry them.
Battered foods (like fish) can be fried in the basket, but this does require a spritz of oil. However this would still be healthier and less greasy than using a deep fryer.
One drawback is that the hot air fryer can only prepare 1 type of food. The Philips 9230 Air Fryer has a metal rack, which can be used to double layer food like fries and fish fingers in the basket.
The control panel on the air fryer looks pretty impressive, but is actually pretty easy to use. You can use the preset buttons or use the manual function to select time and temperature to your requirements
The temperature ranges from 176-392 F which is pretty standard and matches most competing models.
The timer can be set to a maximum of 30 minutes. This should be sufficient for most foods including chicken wings and French fries.
