Halogen ovens are extremely efficient. They are compact and suitable for use in your kitchen. If you have a halogen oven at home, you will realize how easy cooking can be. You just set the temperature, set the timer, put your food in and push the on button. You can roast, bake or boil chicken, turkey, beef, steam fish or vegetables, bake cookies, muffins and biscuits in a halogen oven.
The halogen oven is easy to install. Just take it out of the box, put it on your kitchen counter and plug into the power outlet. No need to involve an electrician or a kitchen fitter specialist like you might need if installing a conventional oven. In general, a halogen oven consists of a glass bowl with a lid on top that contains a high powered fan and halogen bulbs.
This means you can watch your food cooking, cakes rising without having to open the oven door, you can adjust cooking times according to how the food looks. When switched on, beams of infrared radiation are released from the halogen bulbs to produce heat. The halogen bulb, which acts as the heat source is very efficient.
The fan circulates hot air over and around the food to cook it from all directions without burning it. The temperature inside is controlled by a thermostat, which means the light knows when to turn on and off. The temperature and timing dials are easy to use.
There is a digital display panel to set cooking time; the panel which lights up as you select the temperature and the touch panel to set fan speed ‘High’, for example, help the food cook even faster and improves browning. When the cooking cycle is finished the oven emits a long beep. The end result is that food is cooked faster than in traditional ovens. Halogen ovens are also very economical.
Being smaller, and heating up instantly, means that they use much less energy than a standard oven – you can save up to 75% on your energy usage with these ovens. Halogen ovens not only save space due to being a bit smaller than conventional ovens, but they are also capable of cooking food nearly three times faster. Halogen ovens are also healthy.

You need much less oil when using a halogen oven than for almost any other type of food preparation.There is no need to add oil or fat, it means your meals will be healthy and you can enjoy the food you like best without worrying that it might be bad for your health. Halogen ovens don’t break down essential vitamins and minerals in food the same way microwaves often do.
It is no wonder these useful cooking appliances are gaining popularity. Most models have a “self -cleaning” function. You can either just remove the large glass bowl and put it in your dishwasher or use the “auto clean” cycle which most of these ovens have. You just add water and detergent, select the “clean” cycle, set the timer and let it clean itself.
One more important thing: although the oven gets hot to cook the food, it does not throw heat to the outside and therefore is good for using in the summer months when you don’t want to heat up your kitchen.
