Cheaper, cooks faster and saves you money. If your oven is packing up, your short on time or think £29.99 is a pretty sensible investment, you need to try a halogen oven.
Once only available on satellite shopping channels, halogen ovens are climbing the popularity ranks. We wouldn’t quite call it the next spiralizer, but there’s a growing army of fans singing their praises. And why wouldn’t you?
Much, much cheaper than a conventional oven, a halogen has all the same features as an oven – and more. Plus, a halogen cooks your food three times faster without any loss in quality. In fact, we challenge you to find a conventional oven which roasts, bakes, defrosts, boils, fries AND steams.
How do halogen ovens work?
Well, the concept is simple. Unlike an oven or microwave, a powerful halogen bulb produces an intense heat. Heat circulates around the oven via an inbuilt fan, cooking ingredients at quick fire speed. Very simple yet very effective.
Will the food taste as good?
Food straight out of the halogen is seriously tasty. There’s no forfeit of flavour with this appliance. Plus, you don’t need to add lots of oil or fats to cook in. With a halogen you have the best of both worlds: the speed of a microwave and the cooking quality of a conventional oven. Win win.
What can you cook in a halogen?
Everything you’d cook in your oven – Chinese-style roast chicken, chunky sweet potato fries, artisan pizzas, steamed vegetables, chargrilled ribs, cakes, bakes biscuits – and on and on. Come to think of it, it might be quicker to list what you can’t cook…
Isn’t cleaning a faff?
Nope. Leave your scratchiest scourer under the kitchen sink and save your elbow grease for something else. Equipped with a self-cleaning glass coating, simply wipe the bowl clean when you’re done cooking.
How much energy will I save?
Just another perk of the halogen oven; using up to 75% less energy than conventional ovens, energy savings can really add up. Investing in a halogen oven can help knock down gas and electricity bills.
What do you think? Conventional oven: duly ditched?!
