Doubt you'll find a halogen oven this cheap anywhere else. They normally retail for £30 upwards.

This particular model can be found sold under different brands. Possibly it's exactly the same or maybe not. We've owned an identical one (branded as Vida) for about 2 years until it recently stopped working.

If you have never used a hologen oven, they are really worth a look. They genuinely cook most things in about half the time and tend to be as healthy as grilling. Anyway, we couldn't live without ours now and at £12.50 it's worth a punt.

At the time of posting there are about 14 left in the country at this price. So it's a lottery if there's one near you and still available. So please, no wild geese gifs, etc. It's not big or clever and I've been up front and said there aren't many around. Still 14 folk will get a bargain.

Great price. I'm gonna be stuck in a hotel for a week, if only I had the time to go and pick one up, this would have come in handy. Oh well sandwiches, Pot noodle and takeaways.
good price but notice that this does not come with an expander ring as its only 12ltr

Buy a ring online, eBay?
Thank youuuu I reserved one whoop I'm one of the lucky 14 go me lol.
What are these like? First time I've heard of them. I don't use the oven a huge amount (more of a hob guy lol), but if they're the bees knees and make life easier then I might try it for £12.50

Bought a 17L one a couple of weeks ago. Great piece of kit, French Fries 15 mins and no need to warm up like normal oven. 1300 watts but only uses about 2/3 of that due to thermostat.Haven't used onven since.

We were sceptical too a couple of years ago when we first discovered them, but we thought we'd give it a go. We now use this much more than main. This thing really cooks a whole chicken nicely in about 1 hour and doesn't burn the top of it (like our oven can). I also like my bacon crispy and this does it perfectly again without burning it.

Personally I think 12L is plenty big enough. You can get a whole chicken or Sunday roast in there with a little room to spare. Also you're not having to heat the extra space, which I assume involves more time and energy. But if you do want the 17L option, just buy the extender ring on eBay for about £7. In many cases there is no difference between this one and the 17L one other than the extender ring and sometimes an extra 100 watts

Local shop says 1 in stock but when ordering to pay and collect I'm getting message that there is insufficient stock
Bought the Robert Dyas deal £29.99 and there was a £5.00 off voucher.
Used yesterday for Tesco Everyday Value frozen chips (test) I like these taste like Kebab shop chips and later a Tesco Pizza

The chips were perfect: 200 for 20 mins turned twice.
Pizza good but may get a pizza stone to give the base a bit more of a crunch.

This product reaches temp quick not like a normal oven, so saving there. Also was mesmorised watching the Pizza cook though the glass!!!

Overall very happy will be kept by Instant Pot and Andrew James Sous Vide.

If you can snag this deal for £12.50 buy two!!

Good deal, shame closest store is 105 miles. I have been looking for a bigger one for pizzas as this doesn't look big enough so will hold out.

Ooh I've never tried bacon in it! Top tier and full rack I assume?
Love mine which I bought when main oven broke and now rarely use its replacement. Re pizza which someone else mentioned I slice them up with a pizza wheel (or snap against the edge of worktop if frozen) and then place on 2 shelves as I understand putting them in whole blocks the circulation of air so they can't crisp underneath? Bought mine from The Range for £29 but yes it looks exactly the same as every other one everywhere else. Would have bought this for when my current one expires but none in my area. Bargain!
£12.50 is a bargain. I remember buying one about 6 years ago for around £30ish when i moved into my house and we were having the kitchen redone. Think I used it so much that I got sick of it and never touched it again after kitchen was completed!
None near me.
Great price for a great product - very efficient and fast way to cook, much like an air fryer. Even if you have to buy an extender ring for it, which you can get for £5, that's £17.50 total and its as cheap as your are likely to get one for. I got one in Aldi for £10, with an extender, because the box was torn - normal price was £25 at the time..
What are these like for Bread?
haven't tried a " own made" one but they are brilliant for the part bakes ready in about 5 mins just right crispness outside and soft in middle. I prefer mine for the small things rather than the regular oven, like chicken nuggets and scampi they don't dry out inside like they do in the normal oven. The only thing I haven't had come out either the same or better is a victoria sponge cake, no idea why.

I would say its due to the way the fan blows directly onto it, I cant get yorkie puds to do very well in one.

Aside from that these are the dogs danglies, well worth having and chicken comes out more like a rotisserie one.

We use the higher rack and cook it for 10 mins at 200. But that was on our former Vida oven (that looks the same as this one). I haven't tried this one yet. Also I like my bacon crispy.
