I haven't got this exact model but bought one from Morrison's last year and there great especially for chicken and roast potatoes, £19.99 is a great price

Limited use, stick to traditional 1s

They are a great bit of kit, I have one too .

We have the JML one, had it about 2 years now, couldn't be without it. The results are just the same as a conventional oven except obviously, you can't fit as much in. Having said that though, we're a family of 5 and I fit a joint of gammon and all my roast potatoes in :0)

I have a similar one, very good for small quantities and more energy efficient than my main oven. Look on lid to see if you can get into the top where the ring is, some are easier than others to replace the ring if needs be.

Had a similar one for 2 years Great bit of kit. Bargain Price. Go For It !!!!!

great until the element goes
then its in the bin
unless you find one which says replaceable elements, forget it
amazon did one but it was pricey

I have a 12L version bought from Maplin a year or so ago, think it was just under £30, use it all the time

all meats/roasts are great, chips, pizza's

cleaning is soooo much easier than a normal fitted/cooker oven

added: HERE it is at Maplin, now £39.99

Rubbish and ridiculous comment.

I have one and use it all the time - have cooked, roasts, full chickens many times also roast potatoes. Also use it for breakfast items like bacon, sausages etc. One great selling point is that you dont need to wait on it reaching temperature like you do with a conventional oven - its instant. I love my halogen oven and had mines now for couple of years.

That Maplin one was £29.99 less than a week ago (I bought one to assist with cooking Christmas dinner).

Bought one a few weeks back when it was posted in white used a couple of times so far with good results.

I got one from Livingston a couple of weeks ago (saw it posted here befor) which my parents subsequently took and just purchased another from Bathgate store today, they were on the same aisle as the other kitchen stuff on the top shelf.

I haven't used mine yet but my parents have used the other one several times and swear by it.

cheers.

rolled and boned maybe ....but not a decent sized turkey

That`s a great deal. You use a lot less electricity with a halogen oven. If you have a family of 2................this is perfect for you. It makes the best roast potatoes you will ever taste. So easy to bake , grill and cook chicken etc. Honestly, I would not be without my halogen oven........I use it every day.

These ovens divide opinion. Some people swear by them. Others hate them. I bought the 17 litre model from Aldi. The element burned out after five months (and tripped my kitchen fuse). Aldi offered a full refund and I was glad to take it. Wouldn't buy another.

While mine was very good with chicken (easily replicated in a conventional oven by cooking chicken in a 10-20p roaster bag to seal in the flavour and moisture) it was useless at most other things. The heat source comes from the top alone and no matter how efficient the fan, some foods simply will not cook undernmeath. They certainly won't crisp. It's a nonsense to say you can cook anything in these. Try cooking a pizza. Or a cake. You end up with a cooked top and a soggy mess underneath.

Then there's the problem of gettng food out of the oven. Mine came with oddly designed tongs which which were not easy to use and it was all too easy to drop things. There's no spare room inside those ovens. It is difficult to get some things out without running the constant threat of burns. Then there's the problem of what to do with the lid once cooking is done. It's big and bulky - the Aldi one was, anyway - and it remains fiercly hot for some considerable time. Where do you put it while you remove the cooked food and plate up? Unless you have it on a dedicated stand (added cost) it can roll about and burn whatever it comes into contact with. It would be a nightmare to leave lying around even for a few minutes if you have kids running about.

I don't know about this exact one but I get the feeling they are all made by the same people with different badges on them.

I'm on my 2nd one and I love it. In fact I can't remember when I last used my built-in kitchen oven.

They cooking times are much reduced and I usually cook things at 20 degrees less then the recommended setting for fan ovens, so overall very economical to run.

This is one I have. Link. My first one was from Aldi and it didn't last a year. They did refund most of my money though.

This one is a 10 litre capacity, so it would have to be a very small turkey.

I don't have this one.. But the one I have I use all the time .

had a couple of these as i smashed the glass bowl on my first, they are brilliant!!! well worth buying at full price.

I think the poster is misled. The B+M Halogen oven is almost twice the size of this one! This oven is for at most 2 people and the reason I am saying it is just not big enough is that I have had 2 of the larger ones and they are perfect for roasting a large Chicken but I really do suspect that this small one will struggle.
As regards to them being any good....... I never use my big oven as the food cooked in mine is absolutely amazing!

There were plenty of these at the Warrington Birchwood store earlier today. These are a tad small for our purposes though

Not got this one but they can be good if you don't have an oven. They only cook on top so everything needs turning over and don't really cook around the sides. Despite not coking underneath I normally cook pizzas or fries fairly decent and they cook a lot faster than ovens which is the best thing. Terrible for pies and things like that as doesn't cook the inside

I like my pizza's soggy!
I use the stand for the lid (yes, bought at added cost) ,I would think a wooden board to rest the lid would do the job or a wooden tray?.
I keep & use the halogen oven in my garage, found it distracting while cooking because of the halogen light, it is only brought into the kitchen when cooked. Yes the tongs are fiddly, but I have never dropped or spilled anything when taking it out, but it could be a problem for elderly or people with mobility issues

use mine every day its brilliant so easy to use and even better its so easy to clean, plus cooks alot quicker because it reaches temperature straight away

Hot Deal Heat Added

Ideal World sell these with a hinged lid which is much safer. Read reviews on their site. Usually sells between £40-£50 when on offer. You can also take their easy pay: split payment over 2 months. I will definitely be getting one from IW in the New Year.

Been using one for years, great piece of kit, also low energy costs compared to a large conventional oven.
Used my main oven just twice this year!!.

We have one and as a family of four I can do a full meal in it, absolutely amazing gizmo's and food looks and tastes fantastic, regularly roast joints in it and the meat always seems to come out much better in terms of taste and how juicy the meat seems to be compared to a standard oven pork crackling joins are especially amazing. If ever the other oven goes I wouldn't replace it and just get a separate hob instead.

Yes! It's an extender!
