Grand Finale of Jom Airfry Dan Menang Cooking Competition

Philips Airfryer

 Last year I attended the Low Fat Cooking Competition, you can click on the link to view it. Being mommy of two boys I know the important of eating healthy, I am happy that I am able to see this year competition. This year the Jom Airfry dan Menang competition was organised in support of the World Heart Federation’s annual World Heart Day celebration, which aims to increase awareness on cardiovascular diseases (CVD). In line with the World Heart Federation’s ‘Power Your Life’ campaign, Philips aims to encourage people to take personal responsibility for leading heart-healthy lives, starting by eating healthy. For the competition, participants in teams of two were required to submit low-fat recipes of heart-friendly meals made using an airfryer to be eligible. The finalist teams were then selected based on the healthfulness and presentation of their recipes, the creative usage of the airfryer as well as the amateur chefs’ own personal story using the airfryer.

The five finalist teams of the Jom Airfry dan Menang cooking competition, carefully selected from the numerous entries received, took to the big stage today for the grand finale cook-off at Tropicana City Mall. The Jom Airfry dan Menang competition was organised by Institut Jantung Negara (IJN) and Philips Malaysia as part of their continued partnership for the FATCHECK For A Healthy Heart programme. In the grand finale organised in partnership with AEON BiG, the five pairs of airfrying enthusiasts battled it out to win prizes totalling over RM35,000.

Prior to the grand finale cook-off, the final five teams attended a masterclass session where they had the opportunity to learn from Celebrity Chef Zamzani Wahab and Puan Mary Easaw, chief dietician from IJN, on cooking under pressure and recommended nutritional requirements respectively. The teams were able to apply their knowledge from the masterclass in the grand finale showdown today.

To add to the challenge faced by the finalists, the grand finale cook-off featured a mystery box which held a secret ingredient that had to be included in the final dish. In one hour, participants had to whip up a two-course meal for two consisting of a low-fat nutritious main course and a dessert using the Philips Airfryer.


The cook-off finale was judged by Dato’ Seri Dr Mohd Azhari Yakub; Puan Mary Easaw; Celebrity Chef and cookbook author Marina Mustafa and Mr Muhammad Ali Jaleel. The dishes were judged based on their taste, appearance and nutritional value.
