Why buy a halogen oven?

Grills, ovens and hobs are the core appliances in most cook’s kitchens. But have you ever considered the advantages of cooking with a halogen oven?

A halogen oven is smaller, healthier, faster, easier, cheaper and more versatile than traditional cookers. Don’t believe me? Then let me explain.

Space friendly

The incredibly compact 12 litre halogen oven is all you need to cook a whole roast dinner. No pots, pans and baking trays required. With a worktop friendly 30cm diameter footprint, it’s the perfect cooker for small flats, caravans and kitchenettes.

Another space saving option is a microwave, which uses radiation to heat up water molecules. But this creates steam, which in turn can make food soggy. Halogen ovens use heat, not waves, and the fan makes sure all parts of the food get cooked. This process makes your food crispier and tastier.

Halogen ovens are designed to drain away fat when cooking. So you get the same Sunday roast taste, but without the unhealthy fat.

Steaming is a great way to cook healthy, and it’s a method well within the capabilities of a halogen oven. Steaming unlike boiling, retains the food’s nutrients rather than washing them away with the boiling water. Now super healthy greens are just a steamer tray away.

Conventional ovens don’t have a hi-tech radiant halogen bulb, but halogen ovens do. Having this bulb, along with an air circulating fan, helps halogen ovens cook up to 40% faster than their conventional counterparts.

Waiting for the conventional oven to preheat is a thing of the past. Halogen ovens heat up in 3 minutes, helping to cut roast dinner cooking times to less than an hour. Conventional ovens cook at a comparative snail’s pace, and need at least 2 hours to cook a good roast.

Versatile

Grill, steam, bake, thaw, roast or toast your food. And don’t be limited by the size of the glass bowl, as a lid extender can give you even more cooking capacity.

At a mere 7kg, a halogen oven can be moved around the kitchen freely, allowing you to clean worktops, or put it away for storage. BBQs can even be enhanced with an on hand halogen oven, to roast potatoes or just keep food warm.

Visible cooking

Conventional ovens don’t make it easy for the chef in question to see how their food is doing. With a halogen oven, flapping doors, steamed up glasses and wasted heat are a thing of the past. The space age light given off by the heating element, combined with the glass bowl, make your food easily visible, and keep glasses steam free.

The sight of your food transforming can also be fun for small children, and big kids alike.

Save money
