Great for smaller households

Advantages: It is much cheaper than using a conventional oven
Disadvantages: The outside does get hot in use

Review of Cookshop Halogen Oven

Cookshop Halogen Oven

Advantages: Efficient; economical; versatile; great capacity; simple to use and easy to clean
Disadvantages: None but comes with really poor cooking instructions

Every home should have one of these!! This versatile device is so simple - a small, round, glass version of a fan-assisted electric oven that uses slightly less time and a lot less electricity. A halogen bulb produces the heat and a fan moves it around in ...

Review of Sabichi 83913

Fine for one person

Advantages: Takes up very little space, does its job
Disadvantages: White surfaces - impractical, light always on

Although I've just moved into a three-bedroomed house, it is one of those old Victorian terraces with a tiny kitchen and bathroom added on at the back as an afterthought. This is fine for me because I live alone. I was disappointed, however, to find that ...
