What’s The Big Deal About Paula Deen’s Air Fryer?!

Post by Debra Murray

Last week on Evine Shopping Channel, soon to be ShopHQ, we had a record breaking day with the Paula Deen 8.5 Quart Air Fryer. This has been consistently the best selling air fryer ever on Evine. We sold so many last week Evine has asked me to do an encore show for Paula. Paula will return at the end of the month, but they have predicted this air fryer will not. I have written all the reasons this is the air fryer I own and have encouraged all my friends to own. Feel fee to ask me any questions you may have.


In the past 4 years there has been tremendous growth in new technology in air fryers. When the air fryers first made their appearance in the market place they were small and expensive. However they did a great job at making crispy food. As consumers experienced fried food favorites without deep frying their popularity caught on.

In 2017 Oprah Winfrey named an Air Fryer on Oprah’s favorite list. Consumer Reports has done several articles on air fryers, it’s fair to say this home appliance is not going away.

Air fryers are not actually fryers, they are countertop appliances that use convection technology to blast intense hot air around the food being cooked. In a convection oven you have a fan in the back of the oven blowing around the heat to give you even cooking, with air fryers the heating element sits right over the fan this is what gives you rapid hot air. When the food you are cooking has oil on the outside of it, the rapid hot air gives a crispness similar to deep frying. The benefit to that is the obvious you have less calories than deep frying and more crunch then oven baking.

Air fryers do more than just air fry your favorites with less calories, they roast meat and vegetables extremely well.

Air Fryers cook anything wrapped in bacon better than any other cooking method and the food does not sit in the bacon fat.

Air fryers are fantastic for toast! You can toast bagels, croissants, sandwiches beautifully with just flipping the food once in the cooking process.

Air fryers are fantastic for reheating food, leftover pizza is better in the air fryer than in the day you bought it. The crust crisps the cheese gets all gooey. Much better than a microwave.

There are so many other things you can use an air fryer for like baking and a dehydrator, you can defrost. I could go on for days. If you don’t have an air fryer I highly recommend you get one. My personal favorite and the favorite of my entire culinary staff at EVINE Shopping Channel is the Paula Deen XXL Air Fryer.

The reason the Paula Deen XXL is such a big deal, is just that… it’s big and it is a remarkable value. Most air fryer are 5 quart capacity, Paula’s is an 8.5 quart which means, you can cook enough French fries or wings for the whole family instead of cooking in batches.

The Paula Deen XXL is square, why is that significant? Having a square single basket allows you to cook 35% more food in the same space as a round air fryer taking up the same counter space.

The Paula Deen XXL has more power than most air fryers in the market place, more power means hotter rapid forced air which equates to crunchy for faster.

The Paula Deen Air Fryer has a mirrored stainless steel interior which reflects the heat which increases the performance, not to mention the nonstick coating which Paula insists on is a fabulous stone finish which is made of ceramic and titanium it is so easy to clean.

The Paula Deen Air Fryer is a big deal! The everyday price on EVINE is $119.00 and the typically offer interest free value payments making it easy to get into your family’s budget.

I will be presenting this air fryer on August 1st on EVINE the live shows will be 10-12 eastern and 3-5 eastern. You can always watch the video online to see the delicious things we cook with this fabulous countertop oven.


Paula Deen is such a lovely person inside and out. She is very particular about what things she will put her name on, she has impeccable integrity. She will be calling in during the show. I just adore Paula and I have had an amazing opportunity to work with her!
