I love my version of this oven. Amazing price as I think I paid £40.

17Ltr as well, I think my one is just 12Ltr

EDIT: just noticed thats with the extender ring, so its just the same as mine - 12Ltr

It appears to be a JML one. Reviews generally good but they don't seem to last long if in regular use.
Really fancy trying one of these.

Mind you, with a 3 year warranty it's probably a no-brainer!


Well if it gives up after 3 years, I reckon you've still got your £25 worth.

Good product,crap build quality.When it dies as mine did you can't take it back to ALDI you have to contact a warranty company who said "We don't bother trying to repair them we just give a full refund"

I highly recommend these, one of our best kitchen gadgets.

These ovens are fantastic, save a fortune on electricity when cooking roasts etc. hot

Similar price at costco, if you have a membership. They often have them even cheaper about twice a year in their monthly coupon booklet.

I use mine every day, best kitchen device I ever bought.

I managed to get one of these when it was last on offer. Very good, but the built in stand design of the lid is a little unsafe and you have to use a oven mit to put it down. I would still highly recommend it for the price.

i use the extender ring to put the lid on when taking lid off so much easier then the stand

"which also uses less energy than conventional ovens."

Hmm - in certain circumstances. They have less volume and less metal to heat than your average oven, but their insulation is pretty poor, so I wouldn't be surprised if they use more energy for long cooking times.

I expect for most things they will be cheaper than a full size electric oven.
Probably more expensive than a gas oven on mains gas and definitely more expensive than a microwave (on micorwave setting - on oven setting I would guess this will cook a little quicker, but then the microwave is better insulated so for long cooking times may do better, as above.)

Yeah I'm very sceptical about that claim.

Having had three similar halogen ovens (each life expired when non-replaceable bulb blows - and they do) my next oven will be with hinged lid, digital timer and more importantly....easy to replace bulb... amazon do them for about £50. Although double the price of this offering, makes more economical sense.

Couldn't wait..Just bought the Andrew James hinged, digital halogen direct from Andrew James as it is cheaper than Amazon at £54.99 delivered. I used code ajluv13 to get it for £49.99.
Not wanting to trounce op post, but this with its spare, replaceable bulb will outlive the Aldi model, has digital timer and doesn't have the fiddly lid. Comes with 2 year warranty and further replacement bulbs about a tenner.

The one from andrew james looks fantastic! I have a basic one and they are great. Am very tempted to upgrade to the digital one!

is this self cleaning?

None of them are really self-cleaning, they just create a soapy water whirlpool on a low heat.

Mines in garage along with George Foreman grill.

Gonna get one!!

It's still £25 more than this with 1 year less warranty so hardly comparable or a bargain compared to this oven. And do we know the bulb isn't user replaceable in this? Plus does it actually matter given the 3 year warranty? We have the very similar lkooking one we got from Cosco 16 months ago for £30, it gets used every day and hasn't given us an ounce of trouble. So the 'same' oven with a 3 year warranty is indeed a billy bargain. HOT!

No, the bulb is not replaceable in this. How are Aldi with warranty products? It's not simply a case of swapping as their stuff is a 'what's on the shelves' kind of thing. I was simply pointing out that this product has a finite life, I much prefer being able to replace the main component which WILL fail given time. Of course the Andrew James is more expensive it is better quality and has more functions - and it's available with a £5 off voucher. Merely offering those who jumped at this Aldi post, a better value for money alternative.
Having looked at the Aldi 3 year warranty on this model - it covers defects 'due to manufacturing faults' they may say the bulb is a consumable.. . aldiwarranty.co.uk/pdf…pdf

Wouldn't be without my halogen. Makes fab crispy homemade chips using spray light & jackets spuds are brill!

I have cooked pork, chicken, sausages & steak in an electric oven, and the taste doesn't compare to the Halogen.
You should try it. Quicker; juicer with more flavour and no pre-heating.

I'm sure some things like Bread and other baked foods may be better in an Oven, but I've always found Electric Ovens to be wanting... Gas on the other hand....

Well if you're talking about a conventional electric oven then you maybe right I was thinking about my electric convection ovens but I'm definitely getting a halogen oven based on what I've read about the running costs.

Just bought one when my Aldi opened at 10 am this morning. Pallet load of over 50 in stock- no big queue or rush for any of today's new offers.
I will keep the box in case something fails in the 3 years

My halogen oven is much more economical than the convection oven in my microwave - e.g. roast potatoes in convection oven - 70 minutes at 2000watts, in halogen oven - 20 minutes at 1300watts. Its simple to compare savings as in this example. Someone here claimed halogen is not that economical, going on about insulation and other irrelevant factors. Halogen is very efficient and fast.

Excellent homemade chips in 12 minutes that taste like fried chips. You can buy a halogen oven much, much, cheaper than those expensive air fryers, with the halogen doing the same things as the air fryer.

The halogen effectively grills and bakes at the same time - hence its efficiency and speed.

A halogen oven does not re-heat like a microwave - it re-heats like a conventional oven - so a microwave is still tops for re-heating cooked meals which taste as if they had not been re-heated. Of course a microwave cannot brown like a halogen (or conventional) oven.

So a halogen oven has clear benefits over other ways of cooking,

Except you've forgotten something crucial - the thermostat. An oven contains a thermostat to maintain the selected temperature, so the element is not on continuously. Does the halogen oven contain an thermostat too? Either way, you can't compare just by wattage and time; the only way to do it is to actually measure it with a consumption meter.

Pibpob - you do not seem to know much about how halogen ovens work - yes they do have thermostats. Without being so precise by using a consumption meter, it is obvious from the example I gave that the saving is substantial. Your loss if you choose to ignore such savings.

Rayb - you obviously have difficulty understanding flows of energy. Without knowing how often the respective thermostats are on, is laughable to suggest any such thing. It's like saying that a car with four times the engine power of another car will have a four times the fuel consumption. A modern conventional oven will have far better insulation than a halogen, so once both are heated to the same temperature is likely to require far less power to retain it at that temperature than a halogen oven. I'm not saying the halogen oven isn't cheaper - far from it - but I repeat that the only way to actually know is to actually measure their consumptions.
