Emeril Lagasse Air Fryer Review
Emeril Lagasse Power Air Fryer 360 Better Than Convection Ovens | Hot Air Fryer Oven, Toaster Oven, Bake, Broil, Slow Cook & More Food Dehydrator, Rotisserie Spit, Pizza Function Cookbook Included Stainless Steel
Good Day Everyone! Today, we are going to take a look at the Emeril Lagasse air fryer. Is this particular air fryer worth a buy? With a brand name such as Emeril I would think this is a great product but I want to be objective. As always, to keep my reviews as unbiased as possible, we have to root out; “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly!”
This fryer has numerous cooking functions that make it more than an air fryer. It’s an all in one cooking extravaganza!
It’s not just an air fryer, it’s an all in one oven! Take a look at the settings below.
The LCD Digital Display comes with 12 cooking functions:
Many air fryers on the market would only dream of having these functions and I think these features puts the Emeril Lagasse air fryer in a league of it’s own. The main feature that caught my eye was the Rotisserie settings. You can put a whole bird in there and watch it do the slow rotating movement while it’s cooking!
Granted, you are going to have to purchase the accessories if you want capitalize on this machine’s versatility, but it will definitely be worth it.
Better Heating Elements
One issue I keep coming across is that a lot of air fryers aren’t cooking the food evenly. This has been a huge pain for consumers as they don’t want to have to turn the food over in the middle of meal preparation.
Well, this air fryer can perform better than a lot of convection ovens and that is by no means a small feat. It comes with Quick cook Technology and has five very powerful heating elements that allow your meals to be cooked evenly on all sides to acquire the crispy tastes.
Having additional heating elements helps for faster food prep and this power air fryer does it’s job, and does it well.
For air fryers, oil is not usually a required, but you may want to add a tiny bit to your products for taste but it is not necessary. The fact that you are using less oil or none at all, helps eliminate unnecessary fatty options.
This oven also cooks very fast! It will cook a whole chicken or turkey in nearly half the time it would take in a traditional oven.
Let’s say you were at an event and won a prize. You could only pick one of three cell phones. There was the latest iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, or a phone made by Adidas.
Your first thoughts would probably be, “why is Adidas making phones? I thought they made shoes. I’m not sure if I want a phone from Adidas even if it’s free.”
Why would you think that? Because even though they are a known brand, you wouldn’t trust them outside their area of expertise, it just wouldn’t make sense.
Emeril is a known brand and cooking is definitely not outside his area of expertise. I try not to get too hyped up when celebrities endorse a product, but if it’s something that’s within their field, I’ll take a second look. So far, I haven’t seen any other air fryers on the market that has as many capabilities as this one, and it’s a BEAST.
This particular power air fryer could replace every cooking appliance in your kitchen, they weren’t playing around with this one.
It comes with a few accessories to help you get started. This air fryer comes with a crisper tray, pizza rack, baking pan, drip tray so you have everything you need right off the bat.
Many air fryers on the market require, you to buy almost all these items if you want to have some versatility for your cooking habits.
A cookbook written by Emeril is also included so if you’re not sure what to make or just. Want to experiment, he’s got your back!
The sleek design of this air fryer is a great addition to any kitchen. Your guest will be amazed at the professional look of this appliance and you will get to brag to your friends how much better you’ve gotten at cooking. It makes for a great display and can match virtually any surface, regardless of the decor.
Customers LOVE this product! It is a great addition to any kitchen and granted, there are some complaints from consumers, but we’ll touch on that in “The Ugly” segment. So far, many people are very satisfied with their purchase.
One of the issues I’ve been running into recently, is that there are still a lot of people that don’t know air fryers exist, let alone a super powered one that has been endorsed by Emeril himself! Once the word gets out, kitchens are going to start transforming worldwide!
Rotisserie Stand Not Included
If you thought you were going to make some rotisserie style rotating chicken right out of the box, you were sadly mistaken.
What’s worse, is that if you really wanted that rotisserie stand, it’s very difficult to find. They really did not make it easy to locate for traditional consumers.
I did manage to locate one on amazon but I haven’t actually used it myself.
If you buy this air fryer from Emeril’s website, you can choose the option to buy one that comes with the rotisserie stand but it may be a little more pricey than on amazon.
If you absolutely have to have the rotisserie stand, try buying this one and let me know how it works, I would appreciate some input. If you click the image below, it will take you right to the purchase screen. As I said, I have not used this rotisserie stand so I don’t know if it fits!

As I’ve said before, I cannot put the prices of air fryers on my website, but you can click the images to gain more information.
Now, I don’t personally believe this air fryer is too expensive because of it’s capabilities. They’re aren’t many like it and it can replace almost any cooking appliance, but you are going to have to PAY, it is not cheap and it is of nice quality. Have you ever heard the term, you get what you pay for?
In this case, it is true and for good reason. You are getting LOT for what you pay for.
Outside Gets Hot
It is best to keep children and incapable adults away from this machine during cooking times. The outside sometimes gets extremely hot and can prove dangerous if one isn’t paying attention. Try to not to have too many items nearby while the device does it’s job.
Discoloration of drip pans
There have been many complaints about the drip pans beginning to discolor after only one to a few uses. After cooking, there is a slight chance your pan will rust after cleaning and will never go back to it’s original color.
All in one sacrifices Quality
Have you ever heard the term “Jack of all trades but a master of none?” This power air fryer is an awesome machine but there are times when it is just a glorified conventional oven.
Sometimes the air fryer Elements don’t even work properly and you just end up baking your meal and it might even take longer than your stove. The extra 12 functions could end up being a weakness rather than a strength on this device, but I’ll leave that for the consumer to decide.
I believe this is a good air fryer and although it is not without flaws, would make for a great purchase. Every single thing you do in life requires risk, sometimes it’s a small risk, sometimes it’s a big risk, but a risk nonetheless. No appliance is perfect and if you have issues, the manufacturer will do their best to resolve the situation. Why? Because they want your continued business.
Thank you for reading my review on the Emeril Lagasse air fryer.
