Lightbulb Halogen Ovens !!!

I am considering getting an Andrew James 12 litre Halogen Oven !

Any one got one and if so are they a good item to have in a motor home !

Default halogen ovens

Definitely not, you need welders goggles on when they come on, nothing will replace your standard gas oven for inside cooking, the different themes in BBQ`s are the way to go for outside cooking, The Cobb has a very good pedigree as do the Cadac gas BBQ`s.

Honestly don`t bother with the Halogen, we have one tried it for various recipies and it`s now in the box never to be used again.

First class been using one since we got our MH. Yes bright when the halogen comes on, but cooking is better than an oven and cheaper. We cook everything from whole chicken to cakes.

Only down side is weight.

We have the model your are looking at.

Ive just bought one of these for the van as no room for an oven. Only used it once at home so far and was quite succesfull. Suspect it will take a bit of trial & error! Bit worried about where to puthot lid though as very limited on worktop space in our van......

UKbill has bought one recently but not yet used it, and I saw one in operation at Pedro's and was highly recommended, but it's nice to get a bit more feedback !

I have a 7ltr one, plenty big enough for 2 people, it stores in the gas oven and has a wire rack included that you can stand the hot lid on end on

We aquired a little electric grill type oven made by Tristar when we got our van, it's ideal for a couple and fits away easy into lockers. Wouldn't be without it now.
