Morningware HO1200M-WR

The Morningware HO1200M-WR Halo Oven is complete with an extender ring, which when fitted makes this the largest capacity oven in the review at 18 liters.


It has digital controls for heat, timer, and fan speed


 the powerful halogen lamp and the fan ( variable speed in this model )


The cooker top ( containing the heating element ) can be rested on the integral rack, a much better arrangement than the other halogen ovens reviewed, where the rack can go skating off on the work surface.


Great Accessibility

The base is made of Glass and the top is of hardwearing heat-safe plastic.  As plastic is a better insulator, there is a smaller risk of you burning your hands. I thought that the construction of the oven, with the side walls integrated with the lid/ heater, was a big advantage, making rearrangement of the food, for example turning a chicken mid way thru, very easy indeed and less likely to cause injury touching the hot sides, as the food is completely accessible.

Reviews from purchasers of the Morningware Halo were all impressed with the results, the meat cooking to perfection and still moist

What the buyers said about the Morningware

 I’ve cooked a 13-lb. stuffed turkey, salmon fillets, a 4-lb. chicken, a casserole of stuffing, a lemon pie, peanut butter cookies, fajita vegetables, sliced sweet potatoes, and a frozen pizza. It took some trial and error but I think this will work well for me

 I’ve already used it three times with excellent results! I cooked an 8 pound ham in under an hour, and it was the juiciest ham I have ever made

This Infrared Convection Oven cooks 30% faster than its competitor. I owned another Infrared oven but it was slower to heat up, where the Morningware Oven comes on instantly

there were very few problems reported, in fact overwhelmingly good reviews, especially as this is far from the most expensive convection oven in the review. One or two expressed the view that the plastic would not wear as well as glass, but there were no actual breakages reported at all. One last advantage of the upside-down design is that the substantial glass base unit can be used to serve your food straight to the table.

My Conclusion and Rating

Very Impressed, a good solid infra-red / convection oven with no problems and great results I rated it 7/10 in review, making the Morningware Halogen a great buy






The Alternative model Morningware HO1200M is the same but without the extender ring. Even without it, this offers a super capacity  Halogen oven still bigger than most of its rivals in our review

  1. The white knob that sets the time of heating on My Morning Ware halogen oven has come off and vanished. The company 800 number has been disconnected. How can I get a replacement knob.

  2. I was given a Morning Ware HMO 1200 but there is no manual. I’ve search Google for one, but no luck. Do you know where I can get a manual?

  3. I had been given a Morningware Cooker, just getting around to use it would love to have some recipes to cook in it as I don’t have any paperwork for it. I downloaded the manual. If there are some good cookbooks out there please let me know

    • It’s a pity this model is no longer available, it was a very good all round model.
      Don’t be stuck thinking that Halogens are completely different to other cookers. True they are faster, heat up quicker( instantly ) and use less power but if you just think of it as a super FAN ASSISTED oven, most recipes I try for these , work fine in the Halogen, just turn down the heat setting a little and make the timing about 4/5 of the normal time , then check how its doing. You will soon be making everything!
      I just found a recipe tool bar for the computer, got just about every recipe under the sun. I’ll be making it available to download from the site soon.
      Best of Luck Bea
