PowerXL GLA-1005 does cook well however it only has heating element on the top. This means that you might have to flip food halfway cooking cycle for it to be perfectly evenly cooked on both sides. With that being said most meals are properly cooked without having you need to flip it.

- 10 x Skewer

- 1 x Drip tray
Control panel is similar to most other air fryers. You get LED display screen and touch-sensitive buttons. Each preset has its own button so you don’t have to cycle through them all like on some other air fryers. You also get internal light (turns interior light on or off) and rotation (start rotation when using rotisserie accessories, this button will blink when it’s activated) buttons.
Accessories are dishwasher safe so they are easy to clean. Grease flows to the drip tray. Only thing to complain is that some of the crumbs or grease can get stuck in hard to access spaces.
PowerXL GLA-1005 is a decent air fryer oven. Overall it’s slightly less good than the models rated above it however for some consumers this might be the model to get if they are looking for oven type air fryer with rotisserie features.
