Emeril Lagasse S·AFO-001 Power 360 Deluxe Air Fryer Oven Review


Emeril Lagasse S·AFO-001 Power 360 is an air fryer with 16.1-quart cooking capacity. It has 5 heating elements and can cook in temperatures ranging from 85°F to 450°F (depending which preset your are using) whereas most air fryers only go as high as 400°F.


Cooking

Emeril Lagasse S·AFO-001 Power 360 air fryer cooks well but there are some nuances that make it not among the best. It takes longer to preheat than the best air fryers and longer to cook too.

Some air fryers do seem to do a slightly better job with cooking specific foods too. For example with some air fryers you will get crispier outside if you are cooking chicken even though with Emeril Lagasse Power AirFryer 360 inside is very juicy.

Overall it cooks good but not great. Another issue is that you have to be careful as housing of the air fryer can get very hot and definitely shouldn’t be touched during cooking process or 30 minutes after.
