About this deal
I decanted the oat batter into a small ovenproof ramekin and placed it in the preheated cooking pot. I used the baking function and set it to 180°C for 15 minutes. Usually, baked oats take roughly 20-25 minutes to cook in the oven, so I was hoping that the AeroGrill would cook them faster. Please note that during particularly busy periods, it may take a little longer to receive your delivery and our carrier may attempt to deliver to you on a Saturday. This was the first time I’d used a multifunctional appliance, so I took my time to follow the instructions and study the buttons so that I fully understand its capabilities. Thankfully, the instructions are easy to follow and include an in-depth guide to using each of the air fryer functions, as well as a cooking chart and air fryer recipe booklet to get you started.
Combining your favourite gadgets into one machine saves you from having numerous appliances on your kitchen counter, which we all know can be a pain, especially if you have limited space. After 10 minutes, I lifted the lid to peek at the oats, to my surprise they had risen and had already started to turn golden. I let them cook for the remaining 5 minutes, after which time the air fryer automatically turned off and alerted me to the fact that my breakfast was ready.
You can also manually set the machine, adjusting the cooking time and temperature to whatever you desire. It also saves you from buying multiple machines, saving your cash – especially during the cost-of-living crisis. Every morning I treat myself to a bowl of blueberry baked oats, I often cook these in my gas oven but I thought this would be the perfect recipe to test the baking function of AeroGrill.
However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it is in fact rather compact, I’d even dare say it’s one of the smaller air fryers that we’ve tested despite its large cooking capacity. In a bid to find the best air fryer, we put the Salter EK4549 AeroGrill to the test to find out if this machine is as impressive as it sounds. Its compact size means it can fit in most kitchens, big or small. There was a slight awkwardness when lifting the lid, but simply rotating the air fryer 90 degrees before use will resolve that issue – problem solved!Once the chips had soaked, I drained and patted them dry with a tea towel before coating them in a few sprays of olive oil and adding them to the preheating air fryer. Once the tofu was marinated, I preheated the grill using the high grill preset function which set the machine to 260°C with a cooking time of 10 minutes. Once preheated, I placed the tofu on the grill plate and instantly the tofu began to sizzle.
