    Default Cooking with Halogen Cookers

    I wonder how many have bought these and use them regular

    or

    used it once and forgot it

    too much trouble to use

    didnt like it


    never know this might turn into a Halogen Recipe thread

    we bought 1 few months back and so did 2 friends, who are also caggers, the one that JML sell, have to say very pleased, and been swaping photo's of what we have cooked,

    2 recent examples, done by a mate who had never done any cooking before

    I bought one of these halogen ovens just short of a year ago and I absolutely love it. I use it everyday and am now trying to justify getting myself a bigger version!

    I'm also convinced that it is why my electricity bill has fallen, because if I only have a small amount to cook then it is much cheaper to use than putting on the full electric oven. I also much prefer it over my microwave oven/grill, which doesn't come close to cooking anything so well as the halogen oven.

    The only thing I've not had much luck cooking in it is a ready meal in a foil container. It just didn't seem to want to cook through to the middle very easily. Baked potatoes/fish/chicken/sausages and even cheese on toast have been a resounding success though

    Mine isnt a JML model, so no extender rings available. I thought I would start with a smaller, less expensive version to see how I got on with it. I am thinking about the JML one now though, because a) it's bigger and b) you can get the accessories.

    One small hint to anyone wanting to get a JML version - go to Robert Dyas or ASDA because they sell them instore so no postage to pay! Saves about 5 that way.

    I am looking at getting one of these, it sounds like a great saving of electricity (our cooker is electric and isn't particularly brilliant at some things). I use a steamer quite a bit, one of those layered saucepans.

    How does consumption compare with against a gas cooker, does anyone know? I thought halogen hoovered up kw like nobody's business? :-?

    (Speaking as someone who is majorly investing in LED bulbs at the moment, replacing all the lighting in the house, not cheap at 5 - 8 a bulb, but paying for themselves as elec bills decrease exponentially)

    wife did some tests ,

    heat up time 1 minute or so , gas oven 20 odd minutes

    roughly about 70 - 80% of the cost to cook with gas, so there is a saving over gas, test was done on Roasting a Chicken as in the Pic above of the one Fivenecks did ( he will only moan if he dont get credit )

    as the heat is only on part of the time , and because cooking time is also reduced its less than 50% of the electric cost,

    its a smaller area to heat than a normal oven , the heat is only a 1300 watt bulb and as Halogen ratio to heat is the highest in any cooking, also turbo fan, its energy saving all round,

    try and catch the adverts on shopping tv channels for it,

    you could always ask that fivenecks for more pic's and how to cook with it ,,

    I couldn't quote you exact figures off the top of my head, but the halogen oven definately seems to be one of the main reasons for my electricity bill dropping. If I want a baked potato, I now use the halogen oven and it takes about an hour for a largish spud. You have no heat up time, unlike the conventional oven, so it is much quicker, and if you only want one or two potatoes then obviously it is better than having to use a large oven. There are only two of us at home, so the smaller version has proved ok, but I would recommend the larger one for a bigger family.

    I am genuinely impressed with my little halogen cooker. I even managed to fit a curry into it in a pyrex dish and it cooked beautifully without boiling over like it does in the oven. Had to stir it a couple of times but it was worth the effort lol.

    I am seriously considering buying the bigger version as it has become a well used piece of equipment in my kitchen. (It's also great if you have been out all day and want to do something quick like pizza as a snack. Really quick to cook, and obviously no messing around with the large oven again. Oh, and it is really, really easy to clean as well.)

    here we go the cooking tips time

    baked spud's ( use Maris Pipers if you can get large ones )

    put 2 very large ones in the microwave first , prick them right through and M/Wave them for about 10 minutes,

    inside is really soft and fluffy then, and reduces time in the halogen

    will have to get that fivenecks to post a pic when he does his next lot ,,

    put the chops over the potatoes for the last 15 mins so the fat covers the potatoes.
