Power Air Fryer XL
The Power Air Fryer XL is a large air fryer that you can use to make healthier versions of the fried foods you already enjoy. Things are prepared easily, put inside the enclosed unit, and cooked with hot air. This means less butter, oil, or fat, and fewer calories for the finished foods. Make all of the same fried style foods you want with a slightly different taste, but still the enjoyable crunchy exterior you love.

You can, as the advertisement says, stick to a New Year's resolution by staying slightly healthier.
- Little to no Oil
You do not have to add any oil to your food in order to keep it from sticking.
- Digital Read Out
There is a fun digital read over that makes it as simple as one touch to start your cooking.
- High Heat
You can cook up to 400 degrees.
- Easy Cleanup
The unit comes apart and can be easily cleaned.
- Dishwasher Safe
When you are done, the unit comes apart and the detachable unit inside of which your cooked food was made can be tossed in the dishwasher. This means an easy cleanup once you are finished. What’s more, the unit is contained, completely covered, similar to how an oven is self contained and covered. Normal frying machines get oil everywhere, oil that is hard to clean off. This does not run that risk because it doesn’t use the same amount of oil. You will also find that it doesn’t have anywhere to spray the cooked oil while cooking.
- Smart Sensor
The smart sensor presets to the right temperature for whatever foods you are making. As such, you can set it and walk away, letting it do the work for you. You can cook things up to four hundred degrees in it.
This unit is endorsed by Eric Theiss who is a chef and culinary expert, one who endorses a line of copper chef cookware that is all designed to make cooking easier at home.
- One Size
The unit is only one size which means that you cannot make a whole heap of food all at once. Instead, you can make roughly one or two servings of food at a time. So if you are cooking for a large group or party, you have to do it in rounds. This makes family dinner though a bit more difficult to come by. Of course, whether it is enough for a larger family is contingent upon what you are making and what you eat.
- Not the Same Taste
The taste is not the same. Understand the different oils bring with them different tastes. As such, the types of oils, fats, or butters you use on your foods are what give them certain tastes. When you remove these and only use air, there are not as many things powerfully flavoring the foods. Sure they will taste just fine, but they will not taste exactly the same as real, deep fried versions of the same foods.
- The Idea of Health
The biggest issue with this is that the company claims the use of little to no oil is what makes the unit healthier. It also claims that by using an air fryer like this you do not have to feel guilty about eating things like French fries or chicken wings. In fact, the majority of the advertisement uses emotional words to try and reel you in based on the feelings you might have about eating certain foods. Look at your diet and understand that what you eat is the biggest concern for health, not how it is made.
Eating nothing but chicken wings, French fries, or coconut fried shrimp even when you are using less oil, still means you are only eating those things. Rather than eating healthy things, this is still not good for you. Do not fall victim to the idea that you can eat, as the advertisement says, mountains of French fries just because you are using less oil.
How It Works
This unit relies upon cyclonic heated air, meaning there is a fan on top of the inside which sits directly over the food. When turned on, it whirls the air all the way around like a cyclone shape to get to every part of the food. Even distribution of the hot air in this way is what cooks the food. Additionally, the food is inside of a sealed air chamber so the hot air surrounds the food in an enclosed manner and cooks it faster. Beyond that the main selling point is that you can air fry, bake, steam, saute, grill, or roast all in one with the different settings.
How to Use (Step by Step)
- Load Food
Load the food inside of the machine by using the easy load basket. You just slide it into the unit once it is full of the food you want to prepare. It will heat up to the temperature you need in a matter of seconds, so preheating is not an issue you have to worry about.
- Set Timer
Set it to the appropriate one of six settings with the right temperature and time. The guess work is taken out of using it, because of the automatic shut off function which prevents food from overcooking or burning. When it is done, the unit turns off and your food stays perfectly delicious.
- Enjoy Food
Enjoy the food once it is done.
How it's Different from Competitors
Cooking with less oil and fewer fats as they say, you can make significantly healthier alternatives to traditionally friend foods, though you are not actually frying them in oil.
By comparison, processed chicken wings ( though they do not say processed from where ) have 780 calories. However, the same chicken wings made with this have 250 calories. Understand though that this is clearly a healthier alternative. Still, chances are they picked the least healthy and calorie heavy fast food style chicken wings as a comparison. Not something you would get at the store.
French fries processed from restaurants have 19 ingredients and contain 340 calories per serving. Compare that to the fries you can make here have two ingredients and only 70 calories. Air fried coconut shrimp can be made in ten minutes while a serving of French fries can be made in twelve minutes. Golden fried chicken can be made in twenty five minutes while flavorful fish and chips can be completed in minutes. Eight pound turkeys can be put inside and cooked in thirty minutes.
