Halowave Air Cooker Deluxe Review & Giveaway

I had heard about air cookers. Oh, I’d heard wonderful things. So when JML got in touch with me asking whether I’d like to review their Halowave Air Cooker Deluxe, I jumped at the chance. I really wanted to try one out, so read on to find out how the air cooker works and how I am getting on with it. And even better, I have one up for grabs too…

How the Halowave Air Cooker Deluxe Works

It’s easy to unpack and get cooking. Everything just needs a clean and you’re good to go. The Halowave Aircooker Deluxe comes with all items pictured, along with a cylindrical basket for chips and the like, as you’ll see further down.

The controls are all on the top and are simple to use. You set the temperature, time, rotate where applicable and press start. It does not need to be preheated, you put the food in and set it cooking.

We’ve tried cooking chips, adding nothing to them and they came out lovely and crispy, within 30 minutes. I’m going to try them with a little paprika next time, yum.

And from the cookbook, a lemon chicken. This tasted so good! So moist, and it cooked in just one hour. The spindle goes through it along with forks which then pops into a slot and hole inside the cooker. This enabled the chicken to rotate and make it nice and juicy.

My Thoughts on the Halowave Air Cooker Deluxe

I am finding this to be incredibly easy to use. I am not one to get excited over new gadgets generally as all I see is that I need to spend a while figuring out how to use it. I do not like lengthy instruction manuals! The Aircooker has a clear manual with it, and once it’s out of the box and cleaned, it really is ready to go.

It is quite a large appliance, which is great as it means you can fit decent sized meals in it, but not so good if you have little room in your kitchen. I have quite a lot of worktop space, so haven’t struggled to accommodate it, but if you haven’t, I will say it takes up quite a bit of room. That said, if you use it regularly, it will be well worth the room that it takes up.

Everything can be popped in the dishwasher after use, and I keep the accessories inside the Aircooker when it’s not in use. It’s quite self contained like that, and practical to use. As mentioned, it cooks things more quickly than a conventional oven which is very handy when the kids are hungry! I also like that it comes with a cookbook as this has given me an idea of what I can cook in there, which to be honest, seems to be most things.

This is my first and only experience with an air cooker so I cannot possibly compare it to any others, but I can say that I am happy with its ease of use, the food that it cooks and its sleek appearance. I am already looking forward to trying something else in it.

  1. I love the Rotisserie Spindle for juicy joints, because mine sometimes come out a bit dry so this would help me cook moist joints of meat

  2. I love the Rotisserie Spindle for juicy joints, because my joints come out a bit dry sometimes & this would help me cook moist joints

  3. Being able to cook proper chips again with little or no fat – we threw away our traditional deep fat fryer after my husband had a heart attack and we needed to eat a lower fat diet, and have been stuck using oven chips since then :o)

  4. i like that it gives you a healthier outlook on cooking family favorites such as chicken or chips and of course in our house we love crispy chips!! easy cooking for a pregnant mummy with an additional hungry 4 year old to feed.

  5. I like a few things about this. My favourites being the rotating basket and the fact its cooking in a much healthier way

  6. Ruth Cooper-Jones

    This looks fab!! I love how simple it seems to use, which is perfect when trying to cook something for the family. Absolute bonus that it’s healther too! 😋

  7. It appeals to me, because i love chips, but i have to lose weight for health reasons, with one of these, i could still have my chips and it would altogether be a healthier way of eating.

  8. I love that it has a large capacity but the fact that everything can be cleaned in the dishwasher is the most appealing

  9. I moved into a flat where the cooker switch is right over the place where the cooker is supposed to go, so no one will install a cooker in it. I’ve been making do with a microwave and a toaster oven, but there are so many things I miss being able to cook.

  10. ooo I’ve never heard of this before but I love it already! The idea of a delayed timer is brilliant and the fact that it’s a healthy way to cook is fabulous.

  11. I love that it does not need preheating and cooks so much faster than an oven. It makes it so efficient and it’s also so healthy. I’ve been reading about these for ages and like you, really would love to give Chicken the rotisserie treatment.

  12. I love everything about this, been wanting to buy one for ages but other things always pop up. It will be so great to cook all my stuff some healthy

  13. I like that you can cook a whole chicken in it as it probably makes less mess in an air cooker than it would in the oven so less to clean up

  14. I love that it is a safer and healthier cooking option and I could eat food which is not greasy and not pile on the pounds x

  15. I am following Slimming World. I love that this air cooker is a much healthier way to cook favourite foods, and help keep me on plan

  16. I really miss home cook, fried chips. They’re all done in the oven now – and these are nice, but not a patch on what they used to be when deep fried. I would love to see if cooking chips this way makes them taste anything like yesterday’s chips.

  17. Edward Guerreiro

    I like the idea of cooking certain things, such as chips, without having to turn them halfway through the cooking process.

  18. You can cook fat free & you can cook instantly, my oven takes 30 minutes to heat up! I could have chips by then with this.

  19. Love the idea of being able to make things which are quite unhealthy into something just as good but not soaked in oil and grease!

  20. I am becoming increasingly interested in healthy cooking methods and I am also very keen on equipment that will look attractive in my kitchen. This ticks both boxes.

  21. It cooks many food very quickly and I can enjoy more food healthily! Fingers crossed as my dad has been looking for something like this for ages! 🙂

  22. i love how quick and easy it makes meal preparation as it doesn’t need preheating also much healthier with no oil

  23. What appeals to you about the Halowave Aircooker Deluxe? . . . . so many thoughtful ideas to make healthy cooking easier and quicker

  24. I love how much healthy this is. And that it’s little or no oil used! Plus I didn’t realise you could do so many things with it! (Roast, Grill, Bake, Fry, Slow-Cook). That’s very appealing!

  25. I live on my own, so it often seems wasteful to use the oven to make stuff just for me. This looks like it would be much more efficient! Great idea!

  26. Chanette Kennedy

    I love the idea of being able to make healthier chips. I absolutely love chips but don’t have them often, this fryer would be great to make slimming world friendly chips!

  27. I really like that there is none of the waiting around for it to get to temperature and it’s usable straight away

  28. I am really in to healthy eating now and LOVE chips! I love that this halowave air cooker can make chips that are not boring and are alot healthier than fried chips. superb! 🙂

  29. the chips! The chips appeal to me so much! I’m amazed how well they cooked in there! this would be life-changing.

  30. I love that you can make chips without having to use a bucket of oil and the rotisserie/spit feature which I would use frequently

  31. Lots of things. Besides the obvious benefit of being able to use much less fat so being healthier, I have a large family and a fairly small oven. There are quite a few times when I wish I could put some things in an extra oven, especially when we have company and I think this could be the ideal solution for me.

  32. I like the thought that I can eat more healthily without having to give up foods that I like. Especially like the rotisserie for chicken etc plus it cooks so quickly.

  33. Elizabeth Gaskell

    Amazingly generous competition thanks for the chance to win. The product looks amazing.using less oil is the best thing about it.

  34. I love that food can be cooked more healthily. I don’t like seeing grease on my pate from fried chips so this would be ideal for me.

  35. My nana had one about 3 weeks ago and can’t stop raving about it! The appeal for me is that you can enjoy really delicious food without all the added fat! (A huge plus when you’re trying to shift those pregnancy pounds) haha! She’s cooked turkey joints in there and she says that it comes out extra tasty then just putting it in the oven….. I really would love to try it.

  36. I love that it needs just a drop of oil, my goal is to get fit and healthy for 2018, hopefully this would help, I would love to throw out my chip pan x

  37. that you can leave it and get on with other things, that you can do a one pot in it but so much more, it will ‘really cook meat! oooh I want this, thanks for the chance

  38. I love how it doesn’t use oil!
    It means that it might be a healthier alternative to traditional frying in oil!
    Especially when I’m familiar with family that have high cholesterol.

  39. Would love one of these. Had a wish list of 2 kitchen appliances, a slow cooker( which I now have and love) and a Halowave Aircooker. Want this to help with my low fat cooking and still delicious meals!

  40. I love the idea of a digital delay timer so slow-cooked casseroles and stews are ready to eat when you get home from work.

  41. I love the fact you can start cooking straight away.. perfect for feeding my four little monsters quickly.

  42. Georgina Prince

    i like it because it uses less oil than a normal fryer so its healthier (or atleast less calories lol)

  43. I really want to get my family heating healthier and love fried foods so they can still have food they love but will be so much healthier for them and l bet taste better too! it would be amazing to win it.

  44. claire griffiths

    i really like that no preheating is required so not waiting around can just put food in and off it goes

  45. This look fantastic and a great way to still have chips without the guilt or the caleroies, the chicken you cooked also looks so tasty.

  46. I’ve never heard about an airfryer before, but it looks amazing. I like the fact that you can have fat free chips! Yes fat free chips that are slimming world friendly. I’d love to get one of these.

  48. that this is very healthy! I can eat chips and not dripping in fat, healthy chips, yeah! would love to ty

  49. Julie Molyneux

    I like the fact you can set the timer to make lovely slimming world friendly syn free chips and go back to them when ready – no messing in the oven turning them over – plug in, switch on, load and go !

  50. I love the fact that it is large enough to cook healthier, fat free meals for the entire family, in one go

  51. Its so versatile you can use it to cook so many things, it makes the expensive electric oven redundant

  52. Kimberley Ryan

    i love that its a healthier way to cook, self contained and dishwasher safe. I also think its pretty fab to cook a chicken in an hour and keep it nice and juicy

  53. I love that its healthier and that it reduces cooking time which is a big winner in our house as we are always such a busy family x

  54. Like the Rotisserie Spindle as a newbie to Halogen ovens I didn’t realise that you had to turn the chicken over – which resulted in a ruined dinner as we didn’t want to chance putting a half cooked chicken back in!

  55. sharon catterall

    The aircooker would be perfect for me as it cooks food a lot quicker than a normal oven.because i work odd shift patterns im always hungry when i get and home and i then end up eating rubbish which isnt good,id love to see how quick the aircooker cooks
