Good Value Products

I am constantly reminded of the throw away culture we live in. My Son recently fetched me some shopping , which included a new washing up bowl. The bowl he purchased is so flimsy it is actually impossible to pick it up , full of water, without it cracking round the rim at the top! Ok it was less expensive than the trip to the Supermarket but it isn’t fit for its purpose…

The Amazing Halogen Oven

2019 Update.

 

Hi, I hope this site (now in its seventh year) will help you decide about these unusual products, without being conned into buying whatever the local store happens to have piled up in stock. You can read the manufacturers own glowing descriptions, then when buying it online, you find it just isn’t what was promised. Its no good after you’ve bought a lemon, Googling it online at forums and finding hundreds of posts complaining about the same thing. So I decided to do some real research into Halogen Ovens and give you my findings… which is the best value Halogen Oven? I have compiled my findings on the review pages:-

When I got my first Halogen Light powered Cooker I was very sceptical about the performance a machine that cost so little against my trusty Gas oven which had served so well over years and years of cooking.

Believe! these little units are extraordinary

  • Save money
  • Save time
  • Save time cleaning afterwards
  • Get the very best results every time with very little effort

Chef Tony shows off the Fagor Halogen Oven.

The halogen oven is as cheap as a  microwave oven, but cooks like a conventional oven, browning meat perfectly. It is also as quick as a  microwave but doesn’t suffer with cold spots , the heat is distributed very evenly.  It will also cook straight out of the freezer! No thawing necessary. Plus there is no pre-heating like your gas oven, it reaches top temperature almost instantly.
