Elite Gourmet EAF4617 4-Qt. Hot Air Fryer Review

Elite Gourmet EAF4617 is an air fryer with 4 quart capacity that can cook in temperatures ranging from 176°F to 392°F. It’s one of the least expensive air fryers you can buy so is it any good? Let’s find out!


Cooking

Despite being very cheap Elite Gourmet EAF4617 does cook quite well. Food comes out crispy and is delicious. Meat, potatoes, onion rings, veggies and other food come out really great. Basket is large enough to cook for 2 persons at a time, for a larger family you will likely want a larger model.

One thing to note is that some consumers have reported that they notice burnt plastic smell when cooking which apparently doesn’t influence the taste but is slightly concerning anyway.

Once the air fryer has finished cooking it will beep letting you know that food is ready!


Controls

Elite Gourmet EAF4617 has old-school mechanical knobs. Some might prefer them over digital interface but they are less accurate and can be hard to dial in specific temperature or time. On top of that if you accidentally set timer too long you want wind it back.


Other

Frying pan has nonstick coating that doesn’t contain PFOA or PTFE. It’s dishwasher safe.


Conclusions

For a budget air fryer Elite Gourmet EAF4617 is a pretty decent. It doesn’t have the features or quality of more expensive air fryer which some of them can cook a bit better but if you are looking for something cheap then this might do it. Only concerning thing is that some consumers experienced burnt plastic smell during cooking which can be unhealthy if it contaminates food.
