A Truly Unique Design
There cannot be many Air Fryers with such a distinct shape and design. Most just have a Frying basket or drawer, this one has a Spit Roasting spindle and a rotating fry basket. The new 2021 Cooks Professional Digital Air Fryer. The combination of a hinged lid and a safe-to-touch machine body makes the Cooks Pro product a winner. The usual halogen glass bowl is replaced with a double-cell construction effectively insulating the outside, making it much less of a hazard in the kitchen.
Note: a bit of a steep price rise since its introduction!
The Cooks Professional has a spit roast attachment which enables very even cooking of chicken.
Attaching the spit spindle is very simple, drop it in seconds.
Rotating 'tumble' cage
This rotating wire cage is designed for chips and similar foods. Tumbling allows even cooking.
Just a tiny spray of oil is all that you need for perfect chips
What's in the box?
The Cooks Pro is complete with Tongs, Grilling rack, fryer basket, BBQ Rotisserie Fork and Skewers
NOTE: Check the Amazon listing, there are 2 versions, the same model but one has more accessories and is £10 more ( that’s the one in our Ad )
The Cooks Pro Controls
Adjustable Temp and Timer Digital Display
I didn’t like the single multi-purpose display, but mainly because my own has separate timer and temperature displays, but you do get used to switching between the two.

What the Buyers Said...
This is a brilliant addition to the kitchen. As I live by myself with 2 dogs I find it onerous, on a daily basis, to use the large electric oven as it takes an age to heat up to the required cooking temperature. This unit heats up within seconds, literally, and cooks the food to perfection. You can cook several items at once and the attachments are good for the size of the unit
Love this machine, so far have used it to cook whole chicken, roast potatoes ,pork shoulder joint (with great crackling) and chips. I used the rotisserie which gave golden even cooking. The only negative I have is the instruction booklet, could be better explained and a few more recipes would have been nice. I would highly recommend this machine.
With its hinged lid – a great safety feature and cool body, the new Cooks Pro model is probably the best Halogen Oven available today. Although the capacity is only 10 litres and the bowls coating isn’t very thick – ( best to just soak and handwash ) , the overall capacity, speed, quality of build, and cooking results are second to none !
Review Rating : 9/10

I quite like this Cooks model, having the rotisery basket, we had an old halogen cooker from back in 2012 but the lamp broke recently and I would like to buy replacement, the old one never really cooked fresh chips well – (ok on frozen variety) so is this the best one? I only cook chips and prepacked stuff like fishfingers, sausages, chicken nuggest
Yes I think the Cooks Pro is a good model, note it is a little smaller than the standard 12 litre though. So the answer depends on how often you do larger meals. Chips can vary a lot. Here are a few ideas, experiment to get your own best results
The good old spud…..
Fresh potato chips. I get the best results, by carefully washing the chips – medium cut, drying thoroughly, and cooking straight away. (for minimum starch) The texture will depend on the variety of potatoes and the season. Red spuds at my local Asda store, are best in springtime and summer. Remember to turn/shake frequently, no problem in the Cooks Pro or the Breville paddle-type cookers as they tumble continuously.
I do use a little cooking oil I’ve tried many: Canola, Rapeseed, Olive Oil, Sunflower, Walnut, Sesame, and Groundnut, experiment and find your favorite, go easy with it, spray on at the start only. I have an airfryer attachment and that seems to give the best results, for a crispy outside, soft inside, use high heat, close to the halogen lamp
If you tire of fries; prick then Microwave a good size potato for 4 to 5 mins, just before it goes wrinkly, transfer to the halogen and give it 5 mins on full power, serve up half cut through and buttered.
