Forget the JML (p*** poor reviews at Amazon....http://www.amazon.co.uk/JML-Halogen-Oven/dp/B00279J3L4) one which I compared with this side-by-side at home cooking three different meats then gave it away as it was SO poor, food was raw. This compensates for being higher priced than the JML with a 12L capacity, low rack, high rack, manual with recipes in the back (NOT a recipe book like the website states), special tongs to remove low/high rack, and most importantly it offers a stand for the lid which the JML does not...unless someone pilfered it from the box I received!!!

I checked Quidco and they offer 8% for all sales as well as codes for you multiple purchasers...you know who you are....!

Was the JML one switched on at the mains? im sorry, but my JML halogen oven works just fine, and this is an expensive copy

You sound very passionate about this kitchen appliance :thumbsup:
What's the best thing you have ever cooked?

Roast chicken with roast potatoes...perfect every time. Less than 35mins chicken well done with crispy skin. The JML on the other hand...pink at the bone joints!
And to JayJayuk..I have had BOTH..switched on at the same time -cooked and compared the two...any more funny comments? Have you owned/used this appliance before voting cold my friend? Doubt it!
Besides, I stand firm this is better value for money than the Jml based on size and accessories alone!

Ok, 2 things here.

1) i haven't voted yet.. but thanks for making my mind up for me :thumbsup:

2) Why on EARTH would you use 2 at once to compare them? do you regularly cook 2 chickens at once in 2 different applicances just to compare? do you work for a review magazine or something? or just feeling a bit hungry...

Sorry, but sounds like bs tbh, just to try to get this deal some heat, for whatever reason..... you are just pre-empting people who say that the JML one is cheaper..

And yes, i have plenty more humourous comments actually......

Was the chicken you put into the JML oven frozen? as mine cooks roast chicken absolutely fine, maybe the fuse is gone in yours, or the bulb is an energy saver..

All these ovens work the same way....heat from a bulb, they either work or they don't, if the JML left the food raw it was clearly faulty and therefore it is not a fair comparison.. furthermore, u get different size and weight chickens, even slight differences change results, some have fatter legs etc... you may laugh, but it all counts..

Have you considered a career in marketing? I find your sales technique genuinely refreshing.

Charming...

You clearly missed the line in my post...An*l critics step off!
To be concise my oven kicked the bucket and I was lucky enough to pick up a Moffat double from Wickes for £50 (anyone remember this great deal?). To use this I needed a high unit which involved remodelling the entire kitchen. Instead of all this work just for the sake of an oven, my lady and I got these two models to test and use whilst planning the remodel with more patience. I don't know about others but is it BS to buy one of each to determine which is best for us?! I suggest you try the Prolectrix before doubting. Tell me funnyboy, where do you put your JML lid when you remove it? Did you get a stand in your box? And at the time when I tested the two in first instance...it was a baby chicken in each. Do you like your chicken with blood showing at the bone? Same undercooked results for Morrisons Quarterpounders (frozen) and after the lamb chops fiasco I gave up (using same cooking time and temp for each meal).
Also worth a mention I checked the stand for halogen ovens. £3.95 eBay and £5.99 on Amazon...where did you got your stand from IF you use one?
I bought mine for £49.99 last year at the same store and I'm interested to know how much you paid for the JML and when.
Again to the point...with bundled accessories and Robert Dyas in most places...this not ONLY functions better than the JML...but great value for money with/without Quidco!

Here's the article that made me want to test the two and in practice I agreed with much of it;

Not looking to market anything...just saying what I have seen and tasted. I think it is worthwhile for all JML potential-buyers to read my post as well as take into consideration what you get in the Prolectrix box is worth the extra money AS WELL AS doing the job better and in less time.

At last some reasonable justification :thumbsup:

There really is no need to say you compared all these products side-by-side if you believe it is a good deal with the extras it has with it..;-)

But, how much is the postage? is it free? otherwise u will need to include this in the title/price :thumbsup:

Edit: Postage is £5.25

These sites are pretty irrelevant though, and besides, did you ignore all these reviews and thought to hell with it, you would test them yourself anyway? bought 2 chickens and a JML oven ( despite it being rated the lowest on that site ) ...... and then an oven that isnt even LISTED on that site, and started testing them out for yourself?? i am struggling to find a reason why you would do this..??

Let's face facts here, you read one bad review and made a judgement. ;-)

Anyway, i'm done here...... take care :thumbsup:

I tested when both ovens were similarly priced AND after reading testimonies on JML website. Put simply...compared to the Prolectrix (it is the same one in the article for anyone wondering), the JML is pants. If you want value for money (larger bowl, lid stand, tongs for two rack sizes and easy-to-understand manual) and efficient cooking times BUT are considering the JML based on price...STILL go for the Prolectrix. End of.

lol....maybee the were filmimg for qvc in his house,

what else did u do, draw a line down your kitchen floor and test the leading branded floor cleaner vs Cilit bang?

or maybe u have 2 huge tubs of water in your kitchen, so when your kids come down in their not so white whites, a random lady in pink clothing appears. You then manage to get an identical shirt and see how the shirt fairs when half cleaned in the tub of water with vanish vs the tub of water with a normal detergent.

anyways, looking forward to you publishing your results.

All these ovens are made the same. If there was a difference in your cooking result, one of your ovens must have malfunctioned. If had several of these, starting with the first non-halogen oven with wire frame to the last plastic frame halogen. They all work fine and the results are more or less the same. There is no need to spend more than £29.99 in Netto for one of those.

Got one of these instore at Robert Dyas last night - originally £99.99 and then marked to £49.99

Stuck a chicken in - 1.34kg took 60 minutes and roasted perfectly. Highly recommend this!

Leaving aside everything else - the bit that most concerned me was the comment - then gave it away as it was SO poor, food was raw

That was very generous of you, what poor soul did you give it to?
