As many of you know that I have been a fan of the Power Air Fryer Oven and I have posted many times great results from my usage of my mean red machine. This past Christmas, my husband and I gifted my daughter the Power XL 8-n-1 air fryer grill broil bake toaster oven. While we were reviewing the product, our daughter suggested she chip in some Christmas Green and we decided to get a new one that does so much more. No, we are not getting rid of the “Mean Red” as we call it and have decided that we can easily take it with us on trips instead of having to use a microwave for cooking as it is not the same.

As a dedicated cook and baker, I take a new appliance seriously and I like to test out recipes and find my own favorites. I have been applying my testing to foods we like to eat and I thought I would like to share my adventures so far with my readers. My first test was a favorite meat, pork chops:

Four beautiful chops with the seasonings I used prior to grilling .
I placed the seasoned chops in the grill pan and set the controls to 425 degrees, grill setting, and since this was my first time, the timer was set but I was physically close to watch the process. Only 7 minutes and flipped for 7 more minutes with beautiful grill marks.

Don’t they look great? Successful test for grilling
Yes, grill works great! Power XL came through.

Next, I tested a pie, yes an apple pie made the easy way with the Power XL oven using a large can of apple pie filling and two pre-made frozen pie crusts (deep dish but next time I would use the regular and I will explain why. I thawed the pie crusts, preheated the air fryer oven, and filled one of the fork pricked crusts with the filling, and placed the other crust on top and vented the top as seen in the photos.I added an egg wash to the top crust. I set the oven to Bake, Temperature to 375 degrees and set the timer for 35 minutes. You can see how it turned out with the grandson’s and my husband’s approval. So doggone easy and a solution if you keep some crusts in the freezer and a selection of pie filling cans in your pantry. See for yourself:

Now for the reason I would use regular crusts next time. The deep dish is slightly too large to place for the top crust and gave it a little too much pastry. Still delicious!

A tip for those who don’t like cleanups….We cover our drip pan with a thin sheet of tin foil. So easy to remove and replace instead of cleaning.

I have tested more dishes and in the coming days, I will review stuffed mushrooms, crab cakes, fried mushrooms, baked beans, and hot dogs. Maybe even more as I test away. Certainly I am going to roast veggies, grill chicken thighs, and I have to try a pizza soon. I think I have already posted how it perfects toasting bagels. Have fun in your kitchen, until we cook, grill, bake, roast, and sear in the new toy we have!
