About this deal

The Rapid Cooker mode combines steam with convection heat to cook fluffy grains, tender vegetables, and proteins – all at once. Otherwise always switch off the device first before the mains plug is pulled out of the plug socket. This multi-cooker's top feature is that it only has one lid, unlike many that need one for pressure cooking and one for everything else (including the Instant Pot above). This model also has clear windows so you can keep an eye on your roast while it cooks – and you’ll want to use it for roasts, as our chicken was near-perfect on test.

Always pull the mains plug and never the mains cable when disconnecting the device from the mains power.

multiPROMOS' mission is to provide its users with an aggregation service of temporary specials from some distribution brands. Anything from a few sprays to two tablespoons of oil is perfectly adequate for air fryer cooking, though the latter is only necessary for breaded or battered foods. This time, the killer app is money-saving while still achieving crispy food with a fried finish and less oil used in the process. It’s capable of cooking about 450g of chips, which is enough for two and I was impressed at how evenly it cooked a homemade batch in under 18 minutes – a simple shake mid-way through ensured the chips were evenly coated.

Never immerse the main unit and the connecting cable in water or other liquids, and ensure that these components cannot fall into water or become wet. It also has eight preset programs, adjustable temperatures from 80-200°C, and a 60-minute timer with automatic switch-off. Our chips were evenly cooked and browned in both drawers though, but note that the pre-set function took 30 minutes as opposed to the 15 advertised. Hannah has an MA in Magazine Journalism and has previously worked as a freelance lifestyle and women’s sports journalist, working for Stylist, Sky Sports and more. It heats up quickly, with 1,550 Watts of power, but I found the best efficiency by preheating for two minutes before cooking.It’s a hugely versatile gadget, with 1,500 Watts of power and 11 cooking modes (including steam, boil, sous vide and slow cook, as well as pressure cook and air fry) that make it perfect for one-pot meals. A meal cooked for an hour in a typical 2,000 Watt electric oven would use two kiloWatt hours of energy – but if you could cook the same meal in half an hour in a 1,000 Watt air fryer, it would use just half a kiloWatt hour. The buttons are responsive, it’s compact for storage in smaller kitchens and it’s lightweight enough to move around. We like how it comes with an extensive recipe book and detailed instructions too, while its accompanying app lets you control the machine remotely for helpful flexibility.

It is large, making it one for bigger kitchens, but its 10-litre capacity is ideal if you frequently feed a crowd. What we wanted to know is whether they actually work – because, for every air-fryer super fan, there is a critic who says they cook unevenly, have a small capacity and produce dry, slightly rubbery results.

Please include what you were doing when this page came up and the Cloudflare Ray ID found at the bottom of this page. The heating control lamps (19) flash; if a programme is selected, the corresponding symbol (17) also flashes. Heat distribution was mixed though; food positioned in the front half of each drawer cooked better than that at the back. There’s a digital timer built into this model complete with audible sounds when cooking has been completed.

The noise while it’s operating is similar to that of a hairdryer, drawing 1400 Watts, so I don’t think it could be described as ‘quiet’; but in relative terms, it was again best in test.Do not use the device with extension cables which are longer than 3 m or with cable extension reels. My favourite thing is that you needn't worry about timings: all you have to do is sync the drawers, so everything finishes at the same time. This compact all-rounder cooks your favourite foods quickly and gently, using significantly less energy and fat than conventional devices.
