    Halogen ovens

    I've been wondering if these ovens were any good. They used to be advertised only on TV but I've noticed that they are now available in places like Homebase and Makro, but I've never found anyone who has actullay bought one who could confirm that they are as good as they are made out to be.

    I have also wondered how long the halogen element lasts and how much a replacement would cost or maybe it would be cheaper to chuck it away and buy another one!:Wink:

    They reviewed five of these in todays mail, looked like a good idea to me.
    Shame that i left the paper in the cafe and can't remember which one they said was best :Doh:
    As for the element, it'll probably be like the light bulb in our microwave.
    If it's gone you can't replace-it yourself and currys gave us a new machine :Doh: for the sake of a bulb :Doh:


    regards...nige

    halogen ovens

    we have a prolectric halogen oven rated at 1100 watts.
    we are still getting used to it but it cooks a mean tasting chicken, and roasted spuds at the same time.
    the instructions says cook ckickens at 180 degrees but we find full power much better.
    it's supposed to do pizas also but not done any.
    we are sort of made up with it but are still experimenting with it.
    lights the van up a treat.

    one of the comments from the Mail article... It only uses 1300watts
    It is supposed to be very energy efficient


    I had the jml oven given to me by my mother. As we live on a boat we needed something small and efficient and cost effective. With the jml oven we have found the perfect machine. It only uses 1300watts so can be run on the generator. Excellent bit of equipment, wonderfull tasting food. Roasts just like our oven at home makes beautiful cakes, scones, biscuits,stews wonderful wouldnt be without it.

    Can you do a nice bowl of chips in them though?.. We are looking at one of those
    Tefal Actifry machines and cannot decide Halogen or Actifry.

    We bought a Halogen Oven about 4 years ago and have now given it to my daughter, it is the large size (12 lt) and a bit too heavy for the van. Have a look at TJ Hughes - TJ Hughes Online department store selling big brand names at discount prices. under Halogen Ovens and you will find that they do different sizes, the 7 lt seems just about right, good bit of kit. Will do oven chips as well. By the way TJ Hughes only charge £5.50 delivery.

    As far as the Tefal Actifry is concerned, Watchdog did a big piece on them as they were setting on fire, the results are probably on their website.

    A friend of mine has one at home and swears by it says he's not used his "proper" oven at all since he got his halogen jobby..as for the power they draw if it's 1300 watts that will be in the region of 5/6 amps if me memory serves right so if your on a site with only 6 amps it could be trip out if your not careful
    Not totally sure meself but if "The Management " says we need one then we need one don't we ??:RollEyes::RollEyes:

    Sounds good, although space might be a problem but will definately take a look at them.

    Grand ramoska roasts a chicken in less than an hour and only uses 400watts.

    now thats energy efficient.

    Umm i thought about buying one of these ;but was put of by a coupe of reviews, although they worke wel they failed after a perid of time due to rusting action inside where the element was.

    Regards

    Same principle as the Remouska, and they are great, food is cooked by heat from the lid, Remouska is low wattage and come in three sizes, good bit of motorhome kit.:thumb::thumb::thumb:
