No sorry I will take a pic when I go down there next
I saw this one in my local but due to bad reviews on amazon 1/5 didn't bother to buy it. It's 12 liters but forget the brand. Reviews says it grills/burns the food and will not cook properly...
One of the reviews:
" A waste of money
By Mr. Geoffrey W. White - 10 Mar. 2014
We bought one of these ovens on an impulse from Morrisons (around £25) with the idea that it would be more economical than using our main oven for small servings such as naan bread, oven fries etc. Our initial findings were that this oven tended to grill the food rather than cook it throughout. The fan directs the heat from the element straight down rather than circulating it. I did try and mitigate this effect by trying various temperature settings and even placing a glass bowl on the top rack to deflect the heat from food placed on the bottom rack. I was beginning to understand how to best use this oven when it failed to work within one month of purchase. Unfortunately, we didn't keep the receipt. I think that in principle, this type of oven may have a use but it needs a lot of development. I honestly can't recommend this product as it failed to produce good results and then stopped working."

These are brilliant for cooking almost anything, hot.
Great price - heat added

So does my toaster and my grill.

Was going to take your advice and go out and buy an air fryer... But as it was sunny and I can't take the risk!

infrared present in natural sunlight (according to wikipedia:Sunlight is a portion of the electromagnetic radiation given off by the Sun, in particular infrared, visible, and ultraviolet light)

This means by your comment, you'll have to stay indoor forever from now

Always wanted one of these but as I only cycle to try and keep my body looking like a Temple...............of Doom, every time I see them on offer I can't take one home.

I really need to buy a car. Any offers on buy an Oven and get a free car?

I'm be used my halogen oven over 15 years it's great and cost effective. Touchwood I've no cancer oO only downside I've had is cooking buns or cakes or Yorkshire puddings they won't rise like they would in normal ovens tbh but everything else is fine and you don't have to wait 30 minutes for the little oven to warm up. Will check my local, cheers black widow
Better with the extender ring ( buy as a spare off Amazon) that gives you greater depth and reduces the rsik of burning. They do cook meat, chickens etc beautifully.

I have their 17l Halogen. Cooks the best whole chicken ever. Beats our AGA and BBQ. Buy that one no matter what....mmmmm.....
Ive used this for years. not best for cooking but good enough for cooking fish, cheese on toast sandwich etc. but for me main benefit is to use it as a healthy microwave. when my housband is back from work he just reheat his food in there. I hope it will help someone. Another thing to remember is that the halogen lamps wont last long and Ive tried with several models. The only one worth mentione is andrew james with 2 years warranty and spare lamps. However this time it went all rusty altough it shouldn't. All together £15 great price for healthy microwave☺

I think these are all made by the same company anyway.

A great product and an excellent price. It makes up for the fact these never last for long.

Heated.

How long do your lamps last? We're 2 years in without issue and it gets used at least a couple of times a week (not this model).

I've used mine everyday for 15 years and not had to replace my halogen bulb it's still going and I use mine everyday. However one of my friends oven lasted about 11 years before hers broke but was too fiddly to change the bulb unless you know how to do them so she bought another halogen oven

ABSOLUTE TOSH!
Great price, they work a treat but remember to reduce cooking time.
We had to get an emergency one a few days before Christmas once. It just gets shoved in the cupboard and forgot about. Should really use it more really as they are cheaper to run than the oven.

Infra red is literally heat. Yeah it's radiation, but whenever you feel warm, you're absorbing infra red heat radiation.
