Our Power 6 QT 10 In 1 Air Fryer Oven Elite Review

 

Power 6 QT 10 In 1 Air Fryer Oven Elite

If you’ve had the pleasure of channel surfing late at night or early in the morning, you may have recently spotted Eric Theiss pitching his newest offering, the Power AirFryer Oven. This, we are told, is a next-gen air fryer that functions similarly to a standard oven.

Indeed, the typical air fryer uses a basket which is slid into place and then its contents are bathed in heated air. This appliance, however, uses either racks or a rotisserie to expose food to the heated air inside, thus the way the food comes into contact with the surfaces is not the same as a standard air fryer.

About The Power 6 QT 10 In 1 Air Fryer Oven Elite Inventor

Eric Theiss’s culinary savoir-faire started in northern New Jersey as a child when his Italian mother gave him his first cook book at age 6. As a young adult, he worked at The Culinary Renaissance under the rigorous tutelage of acclaimed chef Frank Falcinelli. He opened his own fine dining restaurant and bar called Meritage in West Chester, PA and earned rave reviews from prominent Philadelphia food critics.

Theiss moved on to the culinary broadcast world, working in product development for not only major live shopping networks, but for major celebrity lines as well as his own personal line of cool kitchen tools and cookware, Walah! Theiss remains as a key industry talent and established a successful new publishing company that publishes cook books and pamphlets.

How The Power 10 In 1 Air Fryer Oven Elite Works

The way this device works is that in order to cook your food efficiently and uniformly, there is an in-built exhaust system that controls the temperature and pressure at which the food cooks. This exhaust system releases the necessary air in order to do so but ensures that this air is properly filtered first. As a result, this device is not only safe to use for yourself, but also for the surrounding environment too.

The reason why this device is extremely safe to use is because it has an internal cooling system and a fan fixed to the motor’s axel. This ensures cool air can enter the device through the filtering mechanism and cool the bottom portion. Thus, you can remove cooked food from the oven without necessarily burning yourself every single time.

In the same way that a rice cooker functions, this device also has a tray that can be removed and used for serving food in mere minutes. Even though the food comes out looking crispy and fried, you can rest assured that it certainly contains much less calories and is definitely a healthier option than otherwise.

Power 10 In 1 Air Fryer Oven Elite Features

Auto Timer

No need to worry anymore about overcooking your dish. With a unique in-built timer, the device will automatically switch off when the timer you set tells it to do so.

Handles

With the help of efficiently built handles with grips that are effective and fool-proof, there is no danger of the basket slipping out of your hands while trying to remove it from the fryer. As such, the handle turns out to be practical, comfortable and easy to use.

Recipe Book

If you are someone who loves trying out new and diverse varieties of recipes, then you might be pleased to know that along with the purchase of this item you’ll also get recipe books. You’ll get three recipe books by Eric Theiss in the box: Rotisserie Mastery Cooking Guide, America’s Number 1 Favorite Fried Food Recipes Revealed and Dehydration Creations. You can make beef kebabs, roast chicken or pork, air fry drumsticks and potatoes. And you can dehydrate herbs, fruits, veggies and have great healthy dried snacks without the added chemicals, preservatives or sweeteners of the store-bought dried snacks.

Multiple Preset Options

Depending on what recipe or food you intend to cook, there are 8 pre-programmed settings that are built into the device. These appear as preset options that can help you to cook food at just the right temperature and time for that particular food or recipe.

Power 10 In 1 Air Fryer Oven Elite Benefits

Fat-free Frying

Due to the drip-tray built into this device, any excess amounts of oil and fat is all caught up and held within the tray itself, relieving one of having to worry about eating fatty food.

Dishwasher Safe

There is no need to wash this device by hand, as the cooking basket is completely safe to use with a dishwasher. This makes cleaning this device an absolute breeze.

Calorie-Saver

While this device does give you brown, crispy chicken every time, you don’t need to worry about your calorie intake. When chicken fingers provided by a restaurant as a starter can contain some 700 odd calories, this device brings that calorie count right down to a low of 250 calories. This healthier way of cooking, with a lower calorie count does not mean that your food cooked will not taste exquisite and delicious.

Energy Efficient

Using just around 1700 watts, this device could certainly be considered to be very energy efficient. That too, while being a great all-in-one as a fryer, rotisserie and a pro-grader.
Huge Capacity

When one cannot afford to spend all day cooking, this fryer can come quite useful at times like these. This device provides around seventy-five percent more space than a conventional oven would otherwise provide.

Safer

Due to the fact that this fryer does not need oil or fat to cook your food in, there is less chance of there being hazardous occurrence happening due to splatters and oil catching fire.

Non Sticking

Even though you are not using oil to cook your food, you don’t need to worry about your food getting stuck to the fryer due a non-stick coating of a professional level spread inside.

Time Saver

Since this device has three different levels fitted with cooking surfaces, you can cook a meal that is big enough to feed your whole family all at once rather than separately. This can certainly save you time involved in cooking multiple portions separately.

Due to the fact that this oven uses a fan to subject the food with intense heat and pressure, this fan also works well in terms of getting the oven hot enough for immediate cooking. As such, there is absolutely no need to pre-heat the oven, but you can do so for around 4 minutes if you like.

Money Saving

Due to the multi-functional nature of this device, you will never need anything else for all of your roasting, baking, reheating and toasting recipes. This device can quite easily replace various appliances such as your rotisserie oven, pizza Grill & Microwave, deep fryer, dehydrator, regular oven, and even your toaster.

Power 10 In 1 Air Fryer Oven Elite Cooking Test

In my search for information about the Power Elite I found this cooking test:

“In my first round of tests, as you can see in the video below, I made Italian croutons, fried chicken, sausage and peppers, frozen French fries, and sun-dried tomatoes. The croutons were listed in the recipe guide, and only required a loaf of Italian bread, salt, pepper, olive oil, and oregano. I cut the bread into cubes and covered them in the mix. It only took 8 minutes in the AirFryer Oven, and they turned out perfectly. In fact, the flavor and texture are so pleasing that I will probably make these my go-to croutons in the future.

For fried chicken, I followed the recipe, except that I substituted seasoned flour instead of using the coating in the booklet. After coating my chicken, I placed it in the oven and pressed the “chicken” button. That automatically set the temperature and the time to 40 minutes. I rotated the three trays after 10 minutes and attempted to rotate them again after another 10 minutes but found that the drumsticks were too thick to place on the bottom rack, so I had to leave them on the top. The top rack of chicken turned out much crispier than the other two racks, even though all of the chicken was cooked to the proper temperature.

I wanted to try out the rotisserie function, so I followed recipe for sausage and peppers. This required me to thread each sausage link with two different skewers and clip them onto the rotisserie device. After skewering a few baby peppers, I placed the rotisserie into the oven. There is a special tool included which allows you to insert and remove the rotisserie without burning your hands. On my first attempt, the skewer holding the peppers dislodged and fell to the bottom of the oven. After re-attaching, everything cooked to perfection without a hitch. The sausage had a nice crispy texture on the outside, while the inside was juicy and evenly cooked.

One of the advertised features of the Power AirFryer Oven is the ability to cook frozen foods, so I put a small batch of frozen french fries into the rotating mesh basket. There is a chart in the manual that gives suggested times and temperatures for various common foods, but I simply pressed the “fries” button and the oven automatically set the temperature to 400 degrees and the time to 15 minutes. I found that the fries required an additional 5 minutes, but they turned out crispy and perfectly heated. I liked the fact that I could simply set it and walk away without having to worry about flipping or hearing the oven timer.

My final attempt was sun dried tomatoes using the dehydrating function, according to the recipe guide. Despite following the instructions, I never really achieved the outcome I expected. The recipe called for 10 hours at 145 degrees, but they still weren’t done over 16 hours later. I will attempt these again, but I’ll modify the recipe until I get it right. Next time I will cut them into smaller pieces and remove some of the seeds.

There are numerous presets on the panel, which will give you a good ballpark setting for your food, but it may take some trial and error to fine tune the settings for your specific tastes.

One minor problem I found with the oven is that removing the bottom rack often forced my hand to move very closely – often touching – the hot oven door. I found that putting a second oven mitt flat on the door helped that or using a product like Hot Hands also worked.

To clean the Power AirFryer Oven, I simply used a sponge and soapy water. The racks and the drip tray cleaned up nicely, although the fried chicken left a rather stubborn layer of crust that had to be scrubbed off.

I filmed a second batch of items for a follow-up video three weeks later (see below). Most items turned out nicely, including a frozen pizza, frozen wings, salmon, and shrimp. I wanted to do a whole chicken in the rotisserie, but I couldn’t find one small enough to fit, so I did Cornish game hens instead. The only item I attempted which didn’t really turn out well was cookies, as the parchment paper I put them on seemed to negatively affect airflow. They also did not cook evenly. Other than that, I have found it to be a solid product for a number of uses.

Below you can watch my full 19-minute first-look review of the Power AirFryer Oven, along with my “viewer request” follow-up three weeks later.”

Overall, I think that the Power AirFryer Oven is a worthy entrant in the air fryer category, and it stands apart from the rest due to its unique design. It may not be perfect, but its benefits far outweigh its limitations.

Power 6 QT 10 In 1 Air Fryer Oven Elite Customer Reviews

 

“My kids always hated Frozen french fries or tater tots that were deep-fried but now they eat them like crazy. This fryer gets them nice and crispy on all sides as long as you layer the tater tots on the trays correctly. I put sausages on the rotisserie and they came out amazing. People that say doesn’t cook right should learn how to use perhaps. They are also backed by warranty if any chance you should get a defective unit. Let’s face it no product is a hundred percent and there will always be some defective, but you can simply replace. The price is pretty awesome compared to other products. I absolutely love this fryer and highly recommend it to anyone.” …. Read More

“I like the redesign of this. Love that the door opens to the left instead of the top. Love the release when using the rotisserie. I also love the fact of being able to take out the glass on the inside and be able to clean it. I wish my oven glass did the same. The first Power Air Fryer Oven I bought stopped working on me after 2 uses and when I returned it, I was sent this one instead. Took some getting used to but I actually like. Everything still cooks perfectly in here like the others. Most importantly, I love not having to flip the food mid-way through cooking. A MUST HAVE PEOPLE!! GET IT NOW!!

Update 4/25/2018
Since I have had this Airfryer, I haven’t had any issues. I do have to correct myself and say that I don’t believe its stainless steel on the inside but, it’s not a big deal to me. For one, The cooking process is no different than the last one I had. I’ve cooked all kinds of foods (steak, chicken, ribs, bratwurst, fish, pork chops, fries) and the cooking process has been great for my just about everyday use. I was nervous at first about using the rotisserie because my last Airfryer seem to malfunction after the first use of the rotisserie. But this one is going strong and working perfectly. Maybe I was lucky and received one of the better products of this make. I’m still happy with my purchase.” …. Read More
