- Compared to Philips: “We use this almost every day at our second home. We have the Phillips at our main home so we can compare the two fairly accurately. Basically, it works very well and we use it for fish, okra, crab cakes, sausage, chicken, pretty much anything that would have otherwise gone in a frying pan with some oil. While the Phillips is slightly larger, we can make the same portion in both. The Phillips seems slightly more efficient but it’s hardly noticeable. The key difference, as you might expect, are quality. The Phillips is a high quality piece and it really shows in a side by side comparison. Some of the most noticeable differences are in the fryer basket, the LB100 is more flimsy but adequate. The LB100 is half the price so we expected that it wouldn’t be the same quality. Another difference is the blower, which is the heart of the unit, the Phillips is more powerful and that’s why it’s perhaps a bit more efficient. The fan in the LB100 is slower to spin up and perhaps slower overall and it fluctuates a bit when the heating element comes on, something we have never seen the Phillips do. All that said, we can achieve the same great results from the LB100 in about the same time. ” 2
