Small but powerful and a great addition to any kitchen, halogen ovens are gaining popularity for a good reason. They can cook or grill food faster than standard ovens, plus they are compact and can easily fit in smaller spaces like studio flats or on boats where conventional ovens wouldn’t fit.

The basic premise of a halogen oven is a large glass bowl with a lid that contains a fan and halogen bulb(s). When you turn on these ovens, infrared radiation is released from the bulbs to produce a very powerful form of heat. The fans circulate the hot air around the food being cooked, in order to maintain even temperatures.

As a result, halogen ovens are great for roasting, grilling, baking, steaming, and even dehydrating. They do not need to be preheated like conventional ovens. The hot air produced is dry, so they are usually capable of slightly higher temperatures than conventional ovens or microwave ovens.

Halogen ovens offer a wide range of benefits to the user and they include the following:
