Best Halogen Oven 2014
I've been using a halogen oven for a couple of years now. I first came across halogen ovens on a late night shopping channel, and I dismissed them as a bit of a gimmicky gadget.
It wasn't until my sister-in-law started singing their praises that I looked into them a little further. Having read a few halogen oven reviews and seen what they were capable of, I went out and bought one - and I'm glad that I did.
Halogen ovens cook things a lot faster than a traditional oven. For certain types of food they come close to microwave speeds, although the time reduction is less for other types of food (you need to experiment a little).
However, unlike microwaves, they can cook anything that you would normally prepare in a traditional oven. You can bake bread, cookies, air fry chicken, cook pastry - you name it, your halogen oven can cook it. They are incredibly versatile.
The big difference between halogen ovens and microwaves is that you will actually cook things in a halogen oven, whereas most people just use their microwaves for heating up already prepared food.
Halogen ovens are also much healthier for you. You don't need to add any extra oil, and any fat in the food you're cooking will just drain out naturally.
As if that wasn't enough, halogen ovens use much less energy than a conventional oven. It's because they heat up instantly, cook food more quickly and are smaller in size. You could reduce the amount of energy used in cooking by up to 75%.
To be honest, I don't know how I got by without my halogen oven before. If you haven't seen these yet or if, like me, you've dismissed them as a gimmick, it's well worth your while to have a look at them and see what they could do for you.
