Why does my Philips Airfryer beep during cooking?

Published on 17 February 2023
If your Philips Airfryer beeps during cooking and the timer is still on, it is to remind you to shake your food. To find more about this feature, please read the article below. 

HD9285 5000 Series Airfryer XL Connected

When cooking fresh fries or frozen potato-based snacks with preset settings, the appliance will remind you to shake the food to get it cooked evenly on all sides. This is done via a beeping sound and can happen up to 4 times during a single cooking process.

To turn off this reminder, switch on the appliance and then long-press the homemade fries preset button and the frozen potato-based snacks preset button simultaneously. Repeat this action to activate the shaking reminder again.

Please note: If you "overwrite" the standard preset with your preferred time and/or temperature, the shaking reminder will also be deactivated.

When cooking with the Smart Chef programs, the Airfryer reminds you to shake or turn the food via a beeping and shaking indication (see image below) on the display.

When cooking with a manual setting, you will get a reminder to shake your food once half the set cooking time has passed. However, sometimes shaking is not required, e.g. when you are only cooking in one layer.

You can disable (or enable) the shaking reminder for the manual cooking mode by entering "Settings" through the display menu on your Airfryer.
Some Auto-Cook programs notify you when you need to shake or turn your food. You will hear a beeping sound and the shaking icon will appear on the display when it is time to shake or turn. 

This shaking reminder cannot be disabled as shaking is part of the cooking program and helps ensure evenly cooked results.
