Salter EK2386 AeroCook Pro Air Fryer : Shorter cooking time .

Impressed, use it a lot so much quicker and in turn cheaper than the oven.

This is my 3rd halogen oven over a number of years. They are all basically the same but i did like the mesh basket that is provided i would be totally lost with one i very seldom use my conventual oven nowadays. I would not hesitate in recommending this halogen.

Great bit of kid for the kitchen.

My daughter love’s it when she as cook with it she said she as gone to heaven with the taist lol thank you 😁.

So far beef,chicken,pork,chips and every item has come out so tasty ,we love it.

It’s the only thing i use for cooking now. It was a replacement for a tower one which broke after 3 years but tower replacement i had was broke on arrival but this one is fab .

Value for money will cook anything.

Love it so quick and easy to clean.

  • does good chips but

  • I really like this. I’ve had various models over the years

  • As I live on my own I am happy with the results.

Triple Cooking Technology


Hot air continuously circulates and is blown directly onto the food, as opposed to merely surrounding it, to cook meals quickly.


Infrared cooking uses electromagnetic energy for high-powered heat which penetrates the food.


The integrated halogen element generates heat to provide a deliciously crisp, golden finish to your creations.

Indulge in your favourite foods without compromising on taste using the AeroCook Pro, which requires little or no oil. Exceptionally easy to use with a removable cooking bowl for convenience, less oil also means less clean up.

bbq ribs, recipe

Sticky BBQ Ribs

Combine brown sugar, rice wine, ginger, garlic, tomato ketchup and Dijon mustard over heat to make the marinade. Brush over the ribs and leave in the fridge for 2-3 hours, along with the remaining marinade.

Place the ribs into the mesh frying basket and cook for approx. 20-25 minutes at 220°C in the AeroCook Pro, using the reversible grill rack as a low grill. As it cooks, brush the ribs with the marinade periodically. For extra caramelisation, turn the grill rack over to use as a high grill for the last few minutes.

Crispy Sesame Fried Chicken

Season the chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder, then refrigerate for 4 hours. Mix together porridge oats, sesame seeds, salt and chicken bouillon powder and set aside. In another bowl, combine rice flour, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, curry powder, basil, oregano and chicken stock. Dip the chicken into the stock and roll in the sesame seed mixture.

Spray the chicken with oil and place into the mesh frying basket, using the reversible grill rack as a low grill. Cook for approx. 10 minutes at 200°C until golden brown.

Rack of Lamb

Mix together 6 tbsp of honey, 3 tbsp soy sauce, 2 tbsp of Dijon mustard and chopped mint. Season the racks of lamb with salt and pepper and brush with the honey mixture on both sides.

Place into the mesh frying basket, using the reversible grill rack as a low grill. Cook at 200°C for approx. 30 minutes in the AeroCook Pro. Cover the racks of lamb with foil if they look as if they are overcooking. Serve with roast potatoes, green beans and carrots.

Breaded Prawns

Prepare the prawns by removing the shells and deveining. In a medium sized bowl, add plain flour and coat each prawn. Place the breadcrumbs into a separate bowl, dip the flour-covered prawns into a whisked egg mixture and then roll in the breadcrumbs until completely covered.

Spray the prawns with oil and place into the mesh frying basket, using the reversible grill rack as a high grill. Cook for approx. 10 minutes at 220°C until golden brown and cooked thoroughly.

Expected i have bad issues getting things out of my normal oven. So this is a godsend and it help that you can see things cooking without having to bend down to check no burnt food and timer and controls easy to. Use easy to clean as well x.

It looks really smart and clean. Same weight to the last one i had so no problems, cooks very well but it doesn’t turn off when i remove the lid to turn/stir the food, if the time is not at the end then i have to use the wall switch to turn it off, a bit dangerous but i will try to be careful.

Excellent halogen, i’ve had about 5 halogens and this model is the best.

My last halogen cooker just fizzed out due to old age. After much informed research this revised version came out top and has performed to its rating since. However it’s now called a low fat fryer but the only change from the deceased one is the provision of a basket allowing air to circulate better. Makes it sound on trend now but it really is just a halogen cooker.Really good one tho and am pleased to have it.

So many possibilities and experimenting is fun. Sausages, bacon, burgers, pies. I can cook a full english with hash browns in a jiffy.Frozen pizza’s are perfect and quick. Minimal if any clean-up most of the time. Perfect cheese on toast; you can see everything that is being cooked and time it to perfection without having to stop cooking and looking. The infrared and halogen clicks in and out lighting up the cooking through the glass bowl.

Great for healthy cooking only problem the heater burnt out after a few months, but did receive a replacement.

For the price i think it worth.

Little more difficult to clean. So much more efficient than using a full size oven.

  • does good chips but

  • I really like this. I’ve had various models over the years

Salter EK2386 AeroCook Pro Air Fryer with Halogen Convection and Infrared Power, 5 Litre, 1000 W

Wonderful one that works at last.

This is so easy to use in terms of cooking and cleaning it. Great value, better than my halogen which was a nightmare to clean.

Very pleased with this product , cooks meat beautifully cooks all sorts. Bought mine in august and the element blew on it last week, i contracted amazon and they send me a whole new machine within two days free of charge and free post to send the old one back excellent service.

I live on my own therefore only require small amounts cooked, be it half a chicken or a few chops etc. Because of the area heated cooking time is reduced. With practice this is a good investment, and doesn’t cost a lot to run (electricity), your bill is a lot less than to run then an conventional oven on a stove/cooker. If i didn’t have this 1, would i buy it – yes.

I did had one in the past and glass cracked , but hope this one will be as good as the other.

Not happy with having to lift off the hot lid while trying to turn food over.

I have bought a new built in oven for my wife but she much prefers this piece of equipment. It’s quicker,more even cooking,and costs less to run.

As i live alone this cooker is ideal for me , ive cooked small joints ,thick pork chops ,chips and chicken. Not tried any of the recipes in the book but can’t see why it wont cook those to perfection. Easy to clean and if you dont want to clean cover the bottom with tinfoil , it takes less time to cook a meal than with my oven.

A simple to use , versatile , money and space saving oven. It is ideal for single people or even two.

This is really nice cooker which i now use daily as my regular cooker. Can’t fault the ease of use or the quality of the cooking. However i am currently on my third unit as the first two both failed with a few months. Amazon have been pretty good about sending out replacements but its disappointing when a product fails after just a few months use. Same fault both times – the halogen bulb failed which suggests its a weakness in the design. My one year guarantee is almost up so i’ll probably buy a different brand next time, hopefully with a longer guarantee.

Love my low fat fryer, makes health cooking easier. Like the extras that come with it like the stand for the lid, extra tray for browning.

Have not had this long but we have tried a few meals on it,so pleased with it i think its just a matter of experimenting on things as you go along. Overall a great piece for the kitchen.

Large capacity for cooking various items. Easy to clean as the bowl is separate to the heater. Lid might be a bit heavy for some female users.

Not sure yet not as big as i thought. You will need to experiment with the cooking.

Nothing to dislike a great little machine food does to seem better glad i bought it.

We are very pleased with this cooker and the purchasing service.

It took hours for me to cook chips in and even at that i ended up putting them in the oven after to finish off.
