Our fryers experts have tested 24 elite platinum fryers over the last 5 years. For this update, we reviewed 13 of the best fryers on the market for extensive side-by-side testing. We bought each fryer, weighed it, and recorded its weight, and burned and fried french fries with each model. We then evaluated each fryer on performance, such as how evenly the food cooked, how much oil it pulled out of the cooking oil, and how hot it got while cooking. We also looked for fryers with adequate safety features, such as digital controls and temperature gauges, offerings such as preset temperatures and timer settings, and safety features such as automatic shut-off, auto-pilot, and self-draining. We conducted realistic product tests, including flipping fried foods to test for even heat distribution. This update includes 3 new fryers with updated designs, additional features, and improved technology, including 2 fryers with Bluetooth connectivity.

Our fryers experts have tested a wide variety of fryers and deep fryers. Whether you're interested in an electric deep fryer, a stainless steel deep fryer, or a fryer with a basket insert, our in-depth reviews will help you pick the perfect model for your needs and budget.

Elite Platinum EAF-501SS Electric Digital Hot Air Fryer, Oil-Less Healthy Cooker Timer & Temperature Controls, 26 Recipe Cookbook, PFOA/PTFE Free, 5.3 Quart, Stainless Steel

Elite Platinum EAF-501SS Electric Hot Digital Air Fryer

by Maxi-Matic

8 MENU FUNCTIONS give you the ultimate in cooking control and versatility allowing you to fry, bake, grill and roast all in one! A high-power convection fan envelopes food in temperatures from 160F to 400F degrees and a 60-minute timer automatically shuts off the Elite Platinum Air Fryer at the end of the cooking cycle.

The Elite Platinum Air Fryer delivers everything we loved about the earlier version, as well as a few great new features, like an oil gauge, an extra-large capacity, and a timer. The oil gauge, which displays the level of oil in the chamber, lets you monitor the fryer's oil and know when it's running low. The extra-large capacity lets you create large meals for more people, and the 4.7-pound capacity is our best pick for anyone looking to cook for a crowd. The timer is handy for when cooking for family and guests, and the timer increments in 1-minute increments. The deep fryer's interior is coated with PFOA-free nonstick coating, so cleanup is fast and easy. We also like that the air fryer has adjustable temperature control, so you can fry various foods at varying temperatures, and the fryer's timer also adjusts automatically based on the desired temperature. We previously recommended the DX-60, but the Elite Platinum Air Fryer delivers even better performance, especially at higher food quantities, and it's less expensive to boot.

The Elite Gourmet Fryer is the fastest and most versatile deep fryer we tested. We found that it fried foods faster than the Deep Fryer Pro and just as fast or faster than the Presto 04591. The Elite Gourmet Fryer also fried foods that the Presto 04591 and the Deep Fryer Pro didn't, such as chicken, turkey, and salmon. The Elite Gourmet Fryer is not quite as efficient as the Deep Fryer Pro or the Presto 04591, but it is significantly better than the Deep Fryer Pro. The Elite Gourmet Fryer has an enamel-coated inner pot, which is easy to clean and is less likely to scratch than stainless steel. A viewing window in the front lid makes it easy to monitor food as it fries. Like the Deep Fryer Pro, the Elite Gourmet Fryer has a sliding basket handle, so it's easy to move cooked food to and from the fryer. The Elite Gourmet Fryer is also maneuverable; it has a lower bottom and a wide handle for easy lifting. The Elite Gourmet Fryer has a cord length of 36 inches, which is shorter than the 48-inch cord on the Deep Fryer Pro and the 60-inch cord on the Presto 04591. The Elite Gourmet Fryer costs more than the Deep Fryer Pro, but it is also 5 pounds lighter, so it's easy to carry from the garage or kitchen to the counter. The Elite Gourmet Fryer has adjustable temperature settings, programmable features, and a timer, so it's a great option for those who like to cook or fry food at home.

The Airfryer Grilling Rack from Power Air Fryer Oven is an excellent upgrade for air fryers, whether you're using a 3.4-qt model like the Ninja Foodi or the 4.5-qt air fryer from Air fryer 8 inch Grilling Rack Set. The rack adds about 4 inches to the overall height of the air fryer, so it's perfect for cooking larger cuts of meat or things like a whole chicken, but it also allows you to cook more food on the same shelf. It also makes for easier cleaning, since you can simply remove the rack and wash it in the dishwasher. The rack is a sturdy, well-made product, and its steel construction ensures it will last for years to come. The rack's design is also quite clever, as it features built-in handles and legs that fold up and lock in place. The handles make it easy to lift the rack in and out of the air fryer, and the locking legs prevent the rack from wobbling back and forth as you're cooking. The rack is thin, so it doesn't take up much counter space, and it allows air to flow freely beneath the food, ensuring it dries quickly and evenly. The rack's built-in holder also makes it easy to store the air fryer's cleaning brush and measuring cup, so you're not constantly hunting for them. The included steak cooking guide is a great addition, and it allows you to cook your steaks to the perfect temperature for your desired taste.

The mats are easy to wash, and they don't absorb odors or flavors. The mats are a must-have for air fryer users, but they're not essential. Like air fryers themselves, the mats are multipurpose.

Timer allows you to set and monitor the cooking time to help ensure tasty results

The Elite Gourmet 3.5-Qt. Digital Air Fryer is our favorite model we've tested. It produces even and perfectly-cooked food, and it's large capacity makes it perfect for families or big cooking groups. The cooker is fast, too, and it produces food that tasted better than anything we've had from frying or baking. The basket and pan are easy to remove and wash in the dishwasher, and the digital interface is easy to use. The only negative is that the digital interface is a little slow to respond, but it gets the job done. And, although the fryer is quite large, it's surprisingly compact, so it's easy enough to store or put away.
