I quite like nice food and cooking but until now I have never heard of halogen ovens. So if you’re like me, you might want to know how does it work. It is essentially just like your oven, just smaller. There’s one big difference though I’d like to highlight immediately: halogen oven cooks way faster then your regular oven so it saves energy (therefore, it’s more environmentally friendly) and money. It also uses electricity instead of gas, which can be produced on a renewable way . It is a multifunctional cooking appliance – suitable for grilling, roasting, baking, steaming, frying, broiling, reheating and defrosting. Because it cooks faster, it is able to retain nutrients and flavour better than a conventional oven. You can cook a lot of food with it, I’ve tried it with roasted veggies and bread, what I’ve leaned is that probably the only thing it’s not suitable for is slow cooking stews, soups and ragouts.
I have tested a VonShef 12 litre model (kindly sent me by Domu UK). It now has a nice little spot in the kitchen. It came with an uncomplicated user manual and lots of different parts for different cooking methods, even metal skewers for grilling. It is not as large as I imagined it to be:
When I say it’s uncomplicated to use it, I really mean it. All I had to do was to set the timer and the heat (which is the same as with the conventional oven). I decided to test it with a a safe bet meal: roasted veggies, what could possibly go wrong. So set the timer to 25 minutes, thinking that will do as it takes normally 30-35 minutes in the oven, and 200 Celsius. But I kept an eye on it, luckily, because they were all done in 20 minutes. Not only that, but the veggies were evenly roasted. I used a little bit of olive oil and dried herbs. For roasting the vegetables, the halogen oven was perfect. I would say, the halogen oven did a way better job than my conventional oven, as I often have to scrape them off from the bottom of the baking dish.
Here’s the process in pictures:
Cleaning is very easy: just wash the glass bowl and wipe down the lid with a damp cloth. (Never immerse in water! The “lid” is the actual oven bit, the heater!) That’s another big plus for me!
