  1. we bought a new halogen cooker and tried to cook various vegetables they turned out roasted what have I done wrong.

    • Do you have a steam tray? That’s the perforated round tray, if you don’t have one, they really are very useful for vegetables. Simply put some boiling water in the bowl, the amount should be around a pint / half litre, top it up as it steams off. Put the oven on and return it to the boil then the veg is piled up on the tray sitting just above the water and cooks beautifully and quickly too.

  2. I don’t know if this will help! but when I steam anything I put a cooking foil lid over the top it stops the direct heat onto the veg and stops it roasting,,

  3. Please i have just got a new Halogen cooker but no booklet How can you cook a whole roast chicken dinner that is chicken roast potatoes and stuffing plus veg ? i would be grateful if you could tell me thank you

    • Hi Michael,
      Have a look at our Roast Chicken articles:
      Also, many of my Halogen Oven reviews include download links to their instruction books, so have a browse around, see if your model, or a similar one is on the site. Please get in touch if not, I may be able to find the exact one for you.

    • Sounds marvellous. It should be possible using a high and a low wire rack. Put the veg in a bowl and the chicken in another. If you have an extender ring, fit that. Follow the cooking guidance for chicken, keep an eye on the vegetables

    • As with any oven, you can adjust time, heat and position
      If you have the extender ring, that’s what I use, otherwise maybe 10% on the time and 20% less heat?
      Do let me know how it goes, and mention which oven you have.
