Why buy a halogen oven? Because if you are looking to streamline your kitchen cooking then you might want to consider giving up the toaster oven, your stove’s oven as well as the broiler. All you really need is a halogen oven.
These ovens can do all the functions of the other cooking appliances and still leave you time to do other things and it doesn’t require a lot of kitchen space. Something that has become important in the modern, small condo or apartment.
How Does the Halogen Oven Work?
It works by using electricity that heats up the electric bulb with infrared rays without burning the food. How many times have you burnt something in your regular oven or found yourself having to use aluminum foil to protect the food? Now you can throw away the foil and not worry about having charred food to serve your family.
With a halogen oven, the glass bowl that sits on its base has a lid on the top containing the halogen bulb and a fan. The bulb is heated with the motor which heats the air inside the container and is then circulated around the food cooking it from all directions.
One important thing to note is although the oven gets hot to cook the food, it does not throw heat to the outside and therefore is good for using in the summer months when you don’t want to heat up your kitchen.
The halogen oven needs no preheating, you can just add in the food, set the timer and temperature and it will start cooking right away.
This means that you can even add food right out of the freezer. Good news, especially if you forgot to take something out of the freezer to defrost.
With a halogen oven you will be able to enjoy crisp fries, tender and juicy meat and poultry or even cook your favorite pie or other baked goods with ease.
