An increasing number of positive reviews from happy customers has made this kitchen appliance a best-selling small kitchen appliance. Halogen ovens are all about saving energy and make less work in the kitchen when it comes to preparing meals.
They Save Space - Halogen ovens are small and compact. They can easily take the place of that espresso machine you are hardly ever using or be stored in a kitchen cupboard.
They are very popular with students and people who rent or move often. As well they are the perfect appliance to take on your boat or camping. Many RV users find them useful because they don't take up a lot of room and they can cook a full course meal.
Don't be fooled by the clever design, they appear small but can cook a medium sized chicken with vegetables in a short amount of time.
They Cook Quicker - As the name suggests, these practical ovens use a halogen heating element. Combined with a high-performance fan, the halogen heating element reduces cooking time drastically. Another good feature of this oven is that it doesn't need to preheat the way a conventional oven does before cooking in a halogen oven. As well the clear glass bowl allows you to see the food being cooked which allows you to adjust the cooking time as needed.
They Save Money - A halogen oven, depending on the particular model, costs between five and eight times less than a conventional stove. When you also add the energy savings, you will see that buying a halogen oven is definitely a wise investment.
As well they don't cost a lot. You can buy a basic model for around $35 or pay just over $100 for one that is little more high-tech.
Most halogen ovens come with a couple of wire racks so you can put food at difference heights depending on the amount of direct heat you need. You can add potatoes and other vegetables to the top rack and cook your chicken or other meat on the bottom rack.
Because the heat is circulated with a fan you get even cooking so you don't have to turn the meat or vegetables during the cooking process. Also, the meat turns out moist and tender.
The heat is not a dry heat like you get in a conventional oven so you will find you can end up with a melt in your mouth experience when you cook with a halogen oven.
