This 4.5 Quart Electric Pressure Cooker is famous for it’s quite stunning design and we are going to discuss all of its features in detail. So, if you want to know more about it or are just planning to go for some Air Fryer, do not miss this chance to read this article.
What are the main features of the Gourmia GAF520 Electric Air Fryer?
The Gourmia Electric Air Fryer provides you with a lot of functionality. In fact, until I got to know about this Air Fryer, I didn’t know Air Fryers could be this functional and good looking at the same time. This is one of the ideal Air Fryer models for just about any kitchen. However, the question is: What makes it so?
So, let us take a look at the main features of the Gourmia GAF520 Electric Air Fryer:
- First of all, the Gourmia GAF520 Electric Air Fryer is a digital model. As I said earlier, this makes it really easy to operate. You can easily select the settings and you don’t have to do much. This digital interface makes it easier to keep an eye on it as well.
- Secondly, the Gourmia GAF520 Electric Air Fryer is famous because it is one of those models, again, that can do with almost no oil at all. This is one of those special things which only a few Air Fryers feel qualified to claim.
- Thirdly, the Gourmia Electric Air Fryer can also make fries, seafood, poultry and meat with the touch of a button. This makes it really easy for you to use it. It’s just a touchscreen mode.
- The Gourmia Electric Air Fryer Provides you with about 4 Preset modes: Fries, Seafood, Poultry and Meat.
- Again, the Gourmia GAF520 Electric Air Fryer allows you to easily select the right temperature for cooking your dish. In comparison, the T-fal ActiFry Air Fryer does not give you any temperature adjustment. This means there’s only one temperature which might be too hot or too cold for some dishes.
- Gourmia also claims to be one of the safest available Air Fryers out there. Quoting from amazon
ETL LISTED: We, at Gourmia, take the quality of our products seriously. We are ETL certified so you can be confident that you’re receiving safe, efficient, high quality appliances.
- The Gourmia GAF520 Electric Air Fryer has a pretty standard Capacity. It boasts of a capacity of 4.5 Quarts. This is a moderate capacity and is alright for cooking food for two to three people, depending on how much they eat.
What are some of the negative points for Gourmia?
The Gourmia GAF520 Electric Air Fryer, up to this point, looks great. But that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have any limitations. Like all other models, it also has a couple of things that it could improve on.
The most important things among these are as follows:
- The Gourmia, just like the Della Digital Air Fryer, doesn’t provide you with much choice. It doesn’t provide you with any choice in case of either capacity or color. You just have to stick to the default capacity and color. This makes it sort of a take or leave scenario which discourages several customers. Some customers might be looking for slightly larger models such as the Philips Avance XL. Again, for color options you might choose almost any other models, since almost all the models provide you with a wide range of choices when ti comes to color (although the price might vary depending on your choice.)
- The Gorumia GAF520 also fails to provide you with a high level of durability. Just like the Della Digital Air Fryer, the Gourmia also provides you with a digital model. However, this comes at the cost of the durability, making this model less durable. This is one of the only negative aspects about the Gourmia GAF520 Electric Air Fryer.
- Another negative trait is the economic factor. This Air Fryer costs a real lot. This high cost makes this a bad choice for several people who judge it by price.
Is The Gourmia GAF520 worth it?
The Gourmia GAF520, frankly seems to be functional model. It has a lot of features for you to choose from and a lot of digitization. However, what it lacks is choice. And the price does not really seem to compensate (if not make things worse).
So, at the end of the day, while it is a good model nonetheless, and if you don’t have any special inclination toward the brand or its looks or anything about it in specific, you might want to explore a few other models before you settle for one.
