Not really. I know their history. This device would be based on some technology that is decades old together with some more modern electronics & programming that would be obtained in a fairly standard way. If you put it side by side with an Omron no doubt it would produce the same results +/- the standard margin of error. In fact the only difference between this & an Omron in the same catagory would probably be the programming codes.
Seems you have fallen for the ruse that is the reuse of a once well respected brand. The Salter company that made scales and the like no longer exits, the brand is owned by Homedics that has no realtion to the old Salter company.
Salter have hundreds of years experience in measuring systems. There will be no difference between this & a similar Omron product.
God, yet another thing we don't need or want..... Then I said to her; calm down, think of your blood pressure.... And ordered one (lol) (lol)
Yes I was going to say you can get a well branded used by Doctors Omron one for a few pounds more, I would go with that
For anyone who missed this, picked up similar from asda for £7 tonight. 24cm, Own brand but also forged aluminium with the same hexagonal pattern in the non stick (Teflon xtra) suitable for induction, 15 year guarantee
Expired now a tenner
Thank you ordered (y)

Apparently you shouldn't buy the ones without a spindle or ones that can't turn the contents inside, otherwise as above, it just sticks
We gave ours to my mum as what we was cooking just stuck together - especially chips. My mum cooks all sorts with it and says it saves her putting an oven on for just her. This one is like a mini fan-oven, the bowl doesn't spin around inside. Easy to clean though and no fuss cooking. Hope that helps.
You're not silly :) Tesco are deliberate rogues: they ignore their own substitute-at-original price paid for the purchased item; and impose short delivery dates they know some customers will not notice/remember to allow them to shift clickbait-priced clearance stock at full price (mad)
I didn’t know that happens. Silly me
That will be because the priced changed for the date of delivery.
Check your bank statement, I’ve been charged £15 even though when I placed the order, it said £2.50

Hi, No I have not tbh - was not expecting to & kept falling for Robert Dyas' assurances with all the stress of Covid/Lockdown etc. They really do have the very worst customer services - be aware of this if you order anything of high expense!
Have you tried contacting Salter instead?
HI All, I had one these bought from Robert Dyas which was supposed to replaced in Nov 2020. They sent the replacement to the wrong address & ever since I have been messed around time after time. They made assurance after assurance a new one would be sent but it never was. After the third promise weeks later, I was told I would have to wait another 28 days for delivery which came & went. I wrote to them last month asking for the Head Office Complaints department & they yet again replied the item would be sent out immediately & did not provide the details requested. True to form, it never arrived & then I get a message from them that it was out of stock & I would be getting a refund within 5 days - you guessed it, to date no refund has been made. 7 MONTHS & they still refuse to sort out properly - worst customer service I have ever had - does anyone here know the address & contact details for their Head Office as it is not shown on their website? Many Thanks!
Reviews I see are all "paid for" type. I think it is carefully worded to mislead, without actually saying it has a pump! If it has a pump, then it is the exact design of those without pumps. It says, "five bar pump pressure" which seems an odd way to describe it. Odd too there is no mention of a pump in the manual on their site. ( http://images.esellerpro.com/2579/I/61/EK4369 Barista Pro.pdf ) The manual does however refer to steam and pressure in the water container:
If it has no pump then they must be breaking the law by saying "5 bar pump pressure" in https://www.saltercookshop.com/ek3131-salter-ek3131-espressimo-barista-style-coffee-machine-black.html This review also mentions a pump: https://espressomachinereviews.org.uk/salter-ek3131-espressimo When I was at university I had one of those steam-pressure-only machines so I know what they are like, but I think this one is a bit different. Probably not much better though.
