He (Emeril Lagasse) asserts that you can get these “brown” and juicy results only with Emeril Lagasse’s Pressure Air Fryer’s “Pressure Air Frying” combo (dual) cooking method.



In the second demonstration Emeril Lagasse shows how the Pressure Air Fryer can make ribs brown and tender compared to the soggy ones cooked in an ordinary pressure cooker. He claims there is no comparison at all. He repeats the same demo with steaks to press his “Pressure + Air Fry” point.

Emeril Lagasse’s Pressure Air Fryer REVIEW

The name – Emeril Lagasse’s Pressure Air Fryer is a combination of three words Emeril Lagasse the chef who endorses the kitchen product. “Pressure” – indicating that it is an electric pressure cooker and “Air Fryer”.

NOPE. there are several such devices from Ninja, Delonghi, GoWise and ChefWave.

Does Pressure Air Fryer really cook 70% faster?

Listen, the Emeril Lagasse’s Pressure Air Fryer claims to cook 70% faster but does not mention the cooking method it is compared with. It could be the traditional pan or grill cooking. Also there is no third party verification whether these claims are true. We don;t think this is true at all.


What is Rapid Air Technology?

Nothing special. It is a fancy name given to the Convection cooking used by the Emeril Lagasse’s Pressure Air Fryer. It uses the “Air Fry Lid” with Convection Fan. This is nothing new feature all air fryers use convection cooking method.

What are the Disadvantages of Emeril Lagasse’s Pressure Air Fryer?

  • It does not come with any warranty. So if the appliance stops working, it is a waste of your money.
  • Too many features in one appliance. You may not use some of the feature at all. Also having one machine that can hypothetically replace all other appliance doesn’t mean it saves you time. Remember you can still use only ONE function at a time.
  • Having so many features in one machine makes it more complicated and chances are high that the appliance may break down pretty soon.
  • Emeril Lagasse’s Pressure Air Fryer is noisy and is difficult to clean, especially under the lid.
  • Emeril Lagasse’s Pressure Air Fryer is not at all a time saver. It does not reduce cooking time in-fact it takes more time to cook the food than traditional methods.
  • Even though Emeril Lagasse’s endorses the air fryer, it is not a branded product. It is a “Made in China” kitchen appliance. It is marketed by Tristar Products INC which sells crappy “as seen on tv” products.

    Our Verdict on Emeril Lagasse’s Pressure Air Fryer

    Get this and get this straight. Air Frying takes more time to cook than conventional frying. In-fact it takes forever to cook food with Air Frying. So having a Electric cooker with a Air Frying lid is just an expensive gadget with little useful value. We would recommend buying two separate appliances – An Electric Cooker and an Air Fryer to make your life easier. Emeril Lagasse’s Pressure Air Fryer is not made by a company that has experience in making “quality” kitchen appliances. When you are going to buy such an expensive product it is wise to buy a tried and tested product from a reputed brand.

      The photos you keep repeating are not the pressure cooker but Emeril’s Power AirFryer 360. That product does not use pressure at all.

      • It’s pretty clear by what they say on this website that it’s owned/operated by a competitor. They did not post a review, but instead a very biased article. I seriously doubt that they even tried using one or they wouldn’t have said what they said.

      what to do if wattage is bigger than the US what will i do?

    4. I ordered it they were be supposed to be 4 payments they took the whole amount when confronted they said they could not fix it once order came in. I canceled they said it would take a week to ten days to get 288.00 back then I saw the same thing on Amazon for 199.

    5. Hello

      I am a regular customer of your website.
      Relly love your design.

    6. LOTS of misinformation on this website. Are you funded by a competitor? First off, the unit comes with a full 1 year warranty when ordered from their website. Secondly, the unit is no louder than any other pressure cooker on the market. I actually own one and it is the best pressure cooker that I’ve ever had, and I’ve had many like the healthy and Instant Pot, etc. You also say that it takes longer to cook with this, and that is simply not true. Pressure cookers cook around 70% faster than traditional forms. There is so much bias in your website that you’d have to be a fool to believe some of the things you’ve posted on this so-called “review”.

      • Angel, did you find that the Emeril pressure cooked as well as the Instant Pot. I have cooked potatoes and cauliflower and neither have been fully cooked in the same amount of time as the instant pot. Have you experienced these issues?

      This is one of the biggest pieces of crap I’ve ever bought. The pressure lid would not lock on properly, as done according to the instructions, so the “Lid” light would never go out. If the “Lid” light does not go out, you can’t pressure cook. At that point, you basically own an air fryer. Don’t be impressed by the celebrity name attached to it. It’s a substandard product.

      Emeril’s products are crap… Don’t buy it.!!!

      I cannot believe that I have to pay for returning this. Had I known I would have never had my hubby buy it. Can’t imagine what this is going to cost me. With this virus and no job, they should not be expected for us to return a product that is no use to us.

    10. I bought the air fryer from emeril and they told me hassle free money back guarantee but I ended up having to pay 76$ on return shipping. when I saw the ad they said free shipping and then when I was ordering they told me the shipping for the lid and the book was not included and was extra but doesn’t make sense because it comes in the same box. they just want money. I will be letting everyone know not to buy from this company. I hope they end up in a class action lawsuit for false advertisement. Do not buy from them!

      Bought this air fryer pressure cooker duet 2 months ago. Had some medical problems so didn’t open right away. Big mistake. Went to use air fryer and discovered from directions that I needed a stacked wire rack which is NOT included with the unit. Instead I received a small one level wire rack that does absolutely nothing for the air fryer.
      After I called customer service numerous times I found out the stacked wire rack was something I was supposed to have ordered extra separately. So the unit was shipped out without all the parts to make it a pressure air fryer duet. What I received was a solo, not a duet. So I wound up having to order
      the stacked wire rack only to find that it was out of stock with no idea when it would be in. I can’t send it back because the return policy expired 2 days ago. Unhappy? EXTREMELY! When you advertise an item as multi- functional you should be able to use ALL the functions out of the box.
      I have worked in sales for over 30 years and this is the first negative review I have ever written. As a salesman I know that a pleased customer will tell a couple of friends. A displeased customer will tell everyone who will listen. That is why I wrote this review. Just because Emeril’s name is on it doesn’t mean a thing.

      Ordered Emeril Airfryer Pressure cooker, used it a few times and disliked it. I decided to send it back for the full money back guarantee. It took one hour and 15 minutes on hold to reach customer service to get return information. Three weeks after returning the product, I tried calling to check on my refund. One hour and 25 minutes on hold and I finally reached someone who spoke very broken English. He checked the tracking number and confirmed it had been received. He then transferred me to a ‘Supervisor’ to get my refund processed. 45 MORE minutes on hold and I had to repeat all information to the supervisor who also spoke very poor English. Finally was told they would refund all but $19.99 which they were withholding as a fee to process my refund!! What??
      The worse customer service EVER!!

    13. Why doesn’t the emeril lagasse pressure air fryer come with handles to pull the grill out ? Is that a separate purchased item? I got burned just trying to get the grill out safely and I was being very cautious. That is a big downfall for that product. My fault for not doing research or reading reviews .
