Good points

  • Good at cooking thick-cut frozen fries and crumbed chicken.
  • Stainless-steel pan is reasonably easy to clean.
  • Clear labelling with increments for temperature and timer.
  • Glass lid for viewing (but gets dangerously hot).
  • Comes with rotating roasting cage, dual rack, tongs and rotisserie.

But

  • Just OK at cooking home-made French fries.
  • Just OK to use.
  • No timer cut-out function.
  • No overheat cut-out function.
  • No suction or rubber feet so can slide easily.
  • Food can get stuck in stainless-steel basket.
  • Pan has no handles so difficult to lift when hot with a load.
  • Lid has no handle, very heavy and dangerous to lift when hot.
  • Fan is very noisy when in operation.
  • Tall wide unit difficult to store.
  • Limited instructions.

How we test

Overall score includes:

Performance (60%): Weighted equally on thick-cut frozen chips and crumbed chicken breast nuggets. We also test new models on home-made French fries. This test wasn’t conducted on previously tested models so doesn’t contribute to our overall score.

Ease of use (40%): Assesses how easy it is to assemble, clean and store the cooker and use its controls.

Running costs calculated on 30 minutes’ use 3 times a week (electricity costs of 26¢/kWh).
