Hey folks, we’re on here from smokingpit.com. In this video, I’m going to cover a new tool I’ve got for the kitchen. It’s the Power Air Fryer XL, and basically this is the 5.3 quart model. What it is, it’s a 1700 watt cooker. I’m going to remove the drawer here. Up in the top here, we’ve got a heating element, 1700 watt. And it heats up and it’s going to blow hot air around your food and fry it. That’s why they call it an air fryer. So we’ve got this basket here, it’s a nonstick basket. It has a divider that you can push in here if you want, and you can have fries on one side, chicken on the other, however you want to do it. You can adjust it, move it around. Maybe you want it over here, you can move it further over on this side like that. That’s kind of the gist of it.
It comes out by pushing this button, so it’s all nonstick. Basically the controls on this thing, here’s the power button, and you’ve got a up and down, positive, minus. This is for time, this is for temperature, so you can set the temperature you want. If you hit “M,” you see that it keeps regressing to another icon, so here’s shrimp. For baking, for cake, chicken, here it shows a T-bone steak there. Fish, and then a manual mode, and then back over to fries, and then you can keep going around. Bottom line is once you set it, it’s going to automatically turn on and it will cook for in this case, 350, 25 minutes. When you see this fan moving here with the red asterisk in the center, that means that the blower is on. Of course you can hear that, but the red asterisk means that the heating element is turned on. In a nutshell, you’re supposed to be able to fry stuff without having to drop it into a bed of oil.
In the tests I’ve done, I’ve used just a light mist of olive oil and I’ll put my rubs or my coatings on, whatever I want to do, and then set this thing and let it cook. Halfway through, I pull the drawer out like this, give it a flip, put it back in, and it takes off right where I left off. Real simple operation. Now if you do want to turn it off, and I’ll do it here, you’ll notice everything turns off, but the fan continues to run. It’ll do so until the heating element cools down a bit, and then it’ll turn off. So it’s got a bunch of presets. You can use a preset and then you can adjust the temp and cook time. It’s got a very loud end of cook buzzer, so if you’re at the other end of the house, you will hear it. So anyway, this is the unit. This is the 5.3 quart version of it. There’s a 3.4 quart version of it. This one was $149.
They have a website, you can just Google Power Fryer XL and find their website. I bought this one at Bed, Bath & Beyond. They have coupon sales going on, and I believe I got a 20 or 25% off. I got it for $119 out the door with free shipping. Anyway, Bed, Bath & Beyond is a great resource to pick these things up. So that said, I’ll do a quick cook for you guys. So how about some hot wings, folks? So we got some party wings here that I picked up the store, and I’m going to put them in this bowl and we’ll just spray a little bit of this extra virgin olive oil on them and we’ll add a little garlic powder, little bit of course ground black pepper, and some Mad Hunky Meat Hot Ass Whang rub. This is some great stuff, you can get it at madhunkymeats.com. So we’re going to give it a good liberal coating and I like to put it on thick because the thicker you put it on, the hotter it gets, so keep that in mind. If you don’t like it hot, back down on the rub a little bit.
You can see I’ve coated both sides, sprayed both sides, coated both sides with the rub, and then I’m going to place them in here, and leave some space in between. You don’t want to pile these on top of each other in a big pile. You want the air flow to be able to get around them, and that’s going to help it fry up better. Okay, so we got them all in there. All the wings are coated, we got them in the basket, and next we’ll get this air fryer fired up. Okay folks, we’re going to go ahead and get this chicken going, so we’re going to just slide it in and we’ll fire up and we’ll hit the power button. Okay, now I’m going to hit the “M” button here and we’ll go over to chicken, and I’m going to accept the defaults, we’ll just run it. This will be 360 degrees for 20 minutes. You’ll see that the heating element is cycled on and the fan is going, so we’ll let this go for 10 minutes, we’ll come back, and we’ll flip the chicken. One thing I wanted to mention, folks, is this thing does have a hot air vent. It does release hot air out the back, kind of blows it out, so you don’t want to have this up against any wallpaper, anything like that.
Okay, we’re at the halfway point, folks. Let’s pull these out. Kind of what we’re looking at so far, and give these a flip. I’m going to go ahead and give it a little bit more rub mix on here because I like them hot. Now remember with this rub, the more you put on, the thicker you put it on, the hotter it’s going to get, so be careful there. Get these back in there, and notice it will take off right where it left off. Okay folks, it’s been 15 minutes. Let’s go ahead and take a look at these things. Those look done, look at that. Again, push the button, release the basket. Oh, look at that. Folks, these things smell amazing. Take a look at that. They look good, don’t they? Got a little blue cheese here to go with them because you gotta kick them up a notch, you know?
There you go, folks. That’s the Power XL, and these are some mighty fine looking hot wings. Let’s get in there like that. Look at that. Yep, that’s how I’m rolling tonight. Well folks, they were that good. Pretty amazing. What else is amazing is the cleanup, check this out. So hot water, just rinse this nonstick basket out. That’s all you do, just some hot water. You can [inaudible 00:08:48] with some soap if you want to, but pretty much rinses right out, wipes out with the paper towel, and it’s clean. The other part of the unit, same thing. The drawer, you just rinse it out with some hot water, little soap if you want to and rinse it out good, and then wipe it out with a paper towel. That’s it, both parts clean, put them back in the unit, and that’s it. But there it is, folks. 5.3 quart 1700 watt Power XL Air Fryer. Brought to you by Rob at smokingpit.com.
