I've given it heat for the price even though it looks more like a halogen oven and if that's what it is, its still a good deal. There is/was another post on HUKD claiming the same thing i.e. an air fryer which looked like a halogen oven.

But I think there are some mistakes in Argos' description e.g it can cook 17kg, nearly 40lbs, of food!! But its only 17 L capacity!?!? It only goes up to 65C!! It would take ages to cook anything at that temperature!! Halogen ovens usually cook up to 230C.

PS - On the issue of healthy diets, the Atkins diet which is high in protein and fats but low in carbohydrates was effective for losing weight but its defect was it was also low in fruit and veg. Don't know why as even higher calorie fruit like apples and pears or veg. like carrots and parsnips aren't that calorific. So it seems a low carb. diet is a healthy one, along with smaller portions and portion control means not eating more than you need to, to satisfy your hunger! The halogen oven can make food low fat as it drips away but you need some fat to be healthy.

17kg food capacity?
17l oil capacity?
What? Am I missing something. This seems odd.

Just thinking the same thing.
17kg/17L of oil? ...they tend to have a 12L capacity, with a 5L extender ring, so 17L capacity.

You MAY wanna consider the HINGED LID option, over having to remove the lid, and placing it on a stand, but I'm not sure how the capacity (extender ring) would work?

It's a Halogen, exactly the same as is on my counter at the moment, just a different "Name". As for the price, it seems to be the norm. I've had 2 replacements to date, due to failures in the PLASTIC parts (Cradle split on the 1st machine, as it was withdrawn from the box via the handle for the 1st time, then the Timer switch split on the second) BOTH with the SALTER badge.

TBF, A1 CS from Robert Dyas on the 1st replacement, and if I was able to prove purchase (couldn't as it was a CASH purchase, and a gift) they would have done so for the 2nd, even after 2+ years. The 2nd was replaced by the manufacturer without fuss. The Daewoo looks to have replaced the Salter at "RD"

Chill, have a snack
Out of stock even for home delivery
£30 is pretty much a standard price for a non digital halogen oven. There are loads available at this price.
Just saw it for the same price in B&M this morning!
"And the point of this post was?"

Since obesity levels began to rise.......the promotion of a low fat diet has been pushed as the answer
to it....eat less fat and you will become healthy and slim....but obesity levels are still growing year on year...

Now...with a greater understanding through research of the need for fat in the diet for health and a look back
at the lack of real and genuine research on nutrition in human health, and the spurious claims of the food industry...
the culprit or culprits are known......sugar for one...and the high bulking up of carbs in processed foods... as another
and there are lots lots more....just google

So, if eating fat does not make you fat...why would you buy this or any other cooking aid that reduces your fat intake
to be replaced with a higher and unhealthy carb filled diet....with a every chance of making you fatter and ill...done

It's the literate ramblings of a mad man.
