The first reason to buy a halogen oven is that it will cook frozen to ready to eat food on your plate in less time than a standard electric oven and be better quality than you would get from a microwave oven.
Perhaps you want to cook a fourteen pound turkey. With a halogen oven, you could take a frozen bird out of the freezer, place it on the one inch rack of the halogen oven and baste it with olive oil. You might want to cover it loosely with tin foil and then set the temperature and timer (for two hours) and then just walk away. You will need to check the turkey to see if it is cooked through after the time is up and if not add another some more time.
Cooking a turkey in a halogen oven is a lot easier and less time consuming than if you put it in a standard electric oven. Plus, the turkey meat will be moist and tender. No more dried turkey meat jokes from your family!
The second reason to buy a halogen oven is that you will have more kitchen counter space. There will still be room for preparing other dishes or cooking them in the regular oven. No more waiting for the turkey to be done before you can cook anything else. This is particularly important if you are cooking for a large crowd.
The third reason is that clean-up is a breeze. If you use a cooking spray on the glass bowl, clean-up will be even easier. The bowl and racks can be hand washed in hot soapy water or they can be washed in the dishwasher.
The fourth reason is that what you cook in a regular oven you can cook in a halogen oven. Unlike a microwave oven you can use all your oven dishes that are made of stoneware, stainless steel or aluminum. And unlike a microwave oven your food will be cooked evenly.
The fifth and most important reason is that a halogen oven is cheaper than a dual oven. They may be awesome to have in your kitchen but they arent going to cost under a hundred dollars. In fact you will probably pay thousands for a good one. With a halogen oven you will get the same results but you will also save on electricity since they use less energy.
These are all great reasons for having a halogen oven in the kitchen. But most of all, they produce well cooked food that isnt dried out, has a lots of flavor and doesnt require a lot of preparing of the food. In fact you can take frozen meat right from the freezer to the oven and have it cooked in only a few minutes. It is the perfect solution for all those busy people who want a home cooked meal but often dont have the time.
