Let’s Analyze the Claims Made by the Power XL Turbo Fryer

“70% less calories” – Well there is no independent test that attests the claim that the food cooked with Power XL Turbo Fryer has precisely 70% less calories but all we can say is that it has less oil.Verdict – claim is somewhat true.

Gold N Crispy – The reviews don’t agree with this claim. The air frying method of the Power XL Turbo Fryer does not make your food gold and crispy like deep-frying would make. Verdict – false claim.

Cooks 80% More Food than traditional air fryer – Yes this is true, since the Power XL Turbo Fryer is much bigger than the air fryers out there in the market. Verdict – claim is true.

10 quart capacity means you can air fry a 14 lb turkey – But first you need to fit the 14 lbs turkey in the bowl of the Turbo Fryer, too far-fetched claim. Don’t believe it. Verdict – false claim.

Huge Pork Crown roast cooked to perfection – Provided you keep a close watch on the pork being cooked. You cannot focus on any other task.

Revolutionary Heating Element – Nothing out of the ordinary, sounds more like a marketing ploy.

Rapid Air TechnologyJust a fancy name given to the convection cooking fan. Nothing special about it.

Crispier on the outside and juicier in the inside – Certainly not. Checkout the reviews.

Power XL Turbo Fryer REVIEW

“Turbo Fryer”

The Power XL is named Turbo Fryer because the manufacturer claims that it is the first “Family Sized” air fryer. All the previous models are limited to 5 quarts, there are very few 10 qt air fryers and the Power XL rides on this feature to make it sound as a big and powerful air fryer, hence the name TURBO. But reviews reveal that making an air fryer defeats the purpose of cooking food quick. Reviews reveal that the thumb-rule is that air fryers (or TURBO fryer in this case) are food for cooking for one or two people, it is just not suited for a family.

Pricing

The Power XL Turbo Fryer is priced at $120 and is available only at the official website TurboAirFryer.com/. The product is promoted by Eric Theiss’s – America’s Comfort Chef. The same person who also promotes Copper Chef pas seen on tv products.

The product is competitively priced alongside the other 10 qt air fryers from the branded companies. Many reviewers raise question on the quality of this “as seen on tv” air fryer. Many opine that there are far better options available out there that are tried and tested and come from reputed brands, unlike the Power XL Turbo Fryer.

Many opine that there are far better options available out there that are tried and tested and come from reputed brands, unlike the Power XL Turbo Fryer.

Power XL Turbo Fryer is Smoky

Some reviewers mention that it is just fine if you have to healthy cook without bothering much about the taste of the food. But the Turbo Fryer gives out a lot of smoke which fills the kitchen.

Plastic Smell

Many reviewers mention that the PowerXL Turbo Fryer gives out a lot of plastic smell when it cooks food.

Taste of the Food

No matter what kind of food you cook in the Power XL Turbo Fryer, it tastes bland – almost all the reviews confirm this fact. Air Fried food not necessarily cooked in the Turbo Fryer, does not taste like “fried” you just cant’ get that flavor. So don’t believe all those juice chicken roasts shown in the TV ad. One Turbo Fryer user tried french fries made from fresh potatoes and they were awful.  One user says in his review that whatever you cook with this TURBO FRYER is not at all crispy but more like soy paper or sushi.

Not Better than a Griddle

One reviewer mentions in his comment that the Power XL Turbo Fryer cannot replace a griddle. It (the Turbo Fryer) takes the same amount of time that a griddle would take. Does not add any value. In-fact it does not fry as good as a griddle would do.

Overcooks Everything

This another common complain among the Power XL Turbo Fryer users. You either don’t cook or over cook the food, many people just find it so difficult to get a hang of using the Turbo Fryer. Though many reviewers do agree that if you get it right its a more healthier cooking option. But sadly not suitable for bigger families.

Making Pizza with Turbo Fryer

You are limited to making a smaller 6 to 10 inch pizza, nothing bigger than that at that too just one.

More of a Snack Maker

Though the Power XL Turbo Fryer is a versatile cooking appliances you cannot use it to cook all the meal at one. You have to cook in batches. The Turbo Fryer just does not have the enough space inside to cook a variety of items simultaneously. You can cook your min dish in the Power XL Turbo Fryer but for the side dishes you would still need other appliances. Many users conclude in their reviews that this (Power Fryer) is more of a snack maker than a complete meal maker.

Short Cooking Time

The Power XL Turbo Fryer has a very short cooking time for most of the items, the cooking time is very different from than other cooking appliances and hence a wrong judgement can cause the food to overcook. A difference of a few seconds can turn your food from crisp to dried out. And that is why you have to monitor it constantly, thanks to it see-through glass which facilitates this.

Oil-less Cooking

One reviewer points out in his review that since the Power Fryer uses convection cooking method without oil, the inside of the chicken does not become juice. He further mentions that it is the oil that makes the interior juicy. So no matter which air fryer you use, you should not expect “deep frying” like quality.

Our Verdict

Based on the reviews we conclude that Power XL is an made in China overrated, over-hyped, unreliable air fryer (TURBO version)  that is not worth the price if you are looking for a family sized air fryer.

There is an inherent difference between air frying and deep frying and we are for centuries used eating deep fried food, that deep-frying cooking method is what gives the food its taste. When you move to air frying, something’s gotta give. And this is true with all Convection Ovens and Air Fryers. We are not demonizing the Power XL Deep Fryer, the “air frying” is certainly much healthier cooking option than deep-drying. But the manufacturers of Power XL Turbo Fryer make it look like a magical kitchen appliances where you are going to get taste as well has oil-less food, this is just not possible.

Buying an air fryer is still an healthy option and there are lots of branded fryers out there in the market. Just skip this Turbo Fryer.
