Reviews of the Best Halogen Ovens in US and Uk

The Halogen oven is often promoted with pictures depicting a Chicken cooking with Vegetables underneath.  This is possible but will always be a bit of a compromise.

Remember to always allow room around the food for the hot air to circulate.

Use the extender ring to raise the heated lid up, it will avoid burning the top of the chicken and splashing the heater making it difficult to clean

Vegetables  always taste better when steamed, so use the steamer tray ( perforated tray ) for your vegetables and put in plenty of boiling water in the  bowl base

Chicken should be roasted, so you cook this dry for best results and it is for good reason that chicken is often recommended for the Halogen, the results are terrific !

I would always do them separately, the vegetables take very little time and are best with the least cooking possible to retain those vitamins.

If you are in a hurry then pack the vegetables onto the steamer tray and use the rack to support the chicken, taking the vegetables out as soon as they are done , to taste. Drain the bowl and continue until the Chicken is cooked.

    I have recently bought a Andrew James Halogen & have been wondering about roasting potatoes below the meat. I have the extender ring & a rack from a defunct microwave which is lower than the high rack of the halogen so would it be ok to put the spuds in a shallow dish on this rack with the meat above on the high rack.
    Hope you understand what I am talking about & thanks for any help.

      Yes, if you use a roasting tin for the potatoes it should work as both the Chicken and the Pots are being roasted, its when you need vegetables steamed and a Chicken roasted together that you can cause problems with the veg not being cooked. Remember to turn the pots frequently. Some more tips for Roast Potatoes on the “cooking times” page.

The Halogen lamp is getting better.... Look out for news of the Nano Carbon type lamp. These will be coming onto the market and appearing in new models. Also as replacement types for some lamps. The big advantage is they are not quite as fragile, last up to 10 times as long and are instant heat, so even quicker to cook.
