Recently bought myself a new toy, a Halogen oven. I'm very impressed. It cooks quickly - I did a 1 kg joint of pork last night in 50 minutes. It was cooked through and the crackling was excellent. The roast potatoes were cooked a treat, as well. Halogen ovens don't need to be pre-heated, so you don't waste time/electricity waiting for one to warm up to operating temperature. I did a frozen Chicken pie and frozen oven chips in 15 minutes. It seems to be a little bit like using a Slow Cooker, in that vegetables seem to take longer than meat. I'm not bothered at the moment, because I'll carry on using the microwave for veg. Once I've got used to doing all the things that I used to do, I'll buy a cook book. In the meantime, any hints, tips or tricks for using Halogen ovens?
