Did you know that a halogen oven can cook more efficiently than a conventional oven? In fact they can reach full heat faster largely because they are smaller in size but also as a result of the high performance fan. The fan circulates the air and as a result, the heat is distributed throughout the bowl.
Not only is a halogen oven efficient, it fits in any small space. It just needs a bit of space around it since the bowl will get pretty hot during the cooking cycle. As well you will need some space above the lid so you can open it to add or remove food.
If you love to camp, have a boat or a weekend cottage without a conventional oven, you will love adding this oven to your kitchen area. You can produce a lot of food in this tiny oven and not miss your full-sized oven one little bit!
A halogen oven is great for single people or a couple since you can produce a dinner or quick meal without a lot of fuss. Forgot to take the meat out of the freezer before you left for work? No problem. Just add the frozen meat to the halogen oven and in a few minutes you will have a well cooked meal.
So what can you cook in a halogen oven? Everything from chicken to turkey to steaks and potatoes and vegetables. You can even cook breads and cake or your favorite apple pie. Truly you can't beat halogen oven cooking for efficiency.
You will love the shorter cooking time that gets you out of the kitchen quicker. As well clean-up is a breeze. You simply remove the bowl and hand wash it in hot, soapy water. Some halogen ovens even have a wash cycle so you just add water and soap and press a button.
You can clean the oven after each use or clean it once a week. The lid is a little more difficult to clean since it houses the elements that shouldn't get wet. Just use a soapy brush or sponge and wipe it off.
All in all, a halogen oven is still a lot easier to clean than a conventional oven.
When it comes to safety you will find that halogen ovens have a clever mechanism that shuts the power off the minute you lift the handle. Even when grilling a steak, you don't have to worry about flare ups or flames like you would with a barbeque.
One of the best parts of a halogen oven is watching the food cook in the glass bowl. Although one might argue that the best part is enjoying the delicious, moist and tender meat and poultry that gets cooked in a halogen oven.
