Halogen Oven

Some time ago I purchased a halogen oven, complete with all accessories. It got assembled, looked at, and then pushed to one side and not used.

I have a large range style cooker with two ovens, one quite small (very useful) and the other would cook a small moose! Recently the smaller oven packed up and we have had to use the larger oven. The two bread rolls, baked for lunch, look very lonely sitting in the middle of this massive oven. I have had this oven for over forty years, and it has always given good service. However, now I cannot get the elements for the smaller oven, so it is used as a store for pans, etc.

Last week I got the electric bill. Wow!! So ruddy high. I think this has got to be the power for the big oven, so we decided to press the halogen oven into service. According to the blurb in the book, anything you can cook in the ordinary oven – you can cook in the halogen. With one notable addition. Apparently you can “boil” eggs in the halogen, with no water. Yet to try that one!

At last (phew) to the reason for this post. Has anyone else got one of these halogens? How do you get on with it? But mostly, how on earth do you reach down into the cavernous bottom of the bowl to get out any food you have cooked? I lifted roast potatoes out of it last night one by one with tongs. Bloody crazy. There must be an answer.

Hi Maisie just persevere and fathom out how to use all the accessories to get the best out of your halogen oven. Try looking on Youtube. There are a few videos on their that illustrate how to use it to its true potential. These are just some;

Re: Halogen Oven

Hi Maisie
We have one . I'm afraid there is no easy way to get roasties out other than tongs or a craftily bent metal spoon/slice
We find it pretty good at most things and have one of those metal extender rings so you can cook a chicken without it burning through being too close to the element

You can, with clever placement of the 2 racks , do a complete roast dinner and it's brilliant for cooking pizzas

Re: Halogen Oven

Thanks for the advice. Actually I have just bought an amphamagorian pair of long gauntlets with fingers from eBay. Apparently you could grab hold of an oven element when it is on without getting burned. What has puzzled me is how to get a dish out of the bottom without touching the sides of the bowl - which gets very hot. Hopefully these will work. I will report back later after I have tried them. I have high hopes of this gadget and, together with the microwave, it should cut the electric costs. So far I am quite impressed with it.

Re: Halogen Oven

Forgot to add, if you have the racks with it , there should also be a thin wire gizmo that you can lift the wire racks out with , if you put a plate on one of the racks and there is still room around the edges to reach the wire rack you shouldn't have a problem lifting everything out
Here is what it looks like

Report on the gloves. Absolutely brilliant! They do exactly what they say they will. You can take the lid off the halogen and just take hold of the dish/tray inside and take it out.

I don't bother with the jacket potatoes. Just grab each one and lift them out. I can even hold the lid if necessary on it's way to that strange lid holder! That definitely takes some getting used to. I have put a non slip table mat (one of those rubber things with holes) under it and this works well.

Since starting this thread, we have not used the big oven at all. Judicious use of the halogen and microwave have ruled this out for the time being.

I have also bought an "air fryer" extender ring, which is supposed to cook, oven chips all round also coated fish. Will be crispy the book says! Haven't tried this yet, but it looks as though it will work.

From this you will realise that it looks as though we are converts to this way of cooking.

Best bit should be a much lower leccy bill!

Welcome to the 'converted' Maisie. As said before I wouldn't be without mine for a number of reasons. Those gloves you mention sound good. May I ask where you got them from and their price?

Re: Halogen Oven

I bought the gauntlet gloves from my second "home" - eBay. They were £14.99 postage free. The item No. is 29093511876. They had quite a few when I bought them on 31st October. On eBay, you can see quite a lot of the short gloves (same material although different colours), but these normally sell as one glove, so you would have to buy two. I have to say I did find a site selling a short pair for £5.49, which I also bought, as they are more convenient when using the oven with the high rack and the plate/tray is easier to get to. These are white with blue silicone stripes. Very good as they are non-stick as well. Also useful for the microwave.

Hope this helps.
