Over the past years they have become more and more popular with people wishing to use an alternative to the traditional cooker and could completely change the way you cook. It will sit nicely on your worktop as it only takes up the space of a microwave but is also small enough to be kept in a cupboard if you want to. Great for small kitchens or caravans.
The way they works is very simple which is how the makers designed it to be, it consists of a glass bowl which sits on a plastic base and a lid that has all the workings sits on top of the bowl. A halogen lamp in the lid produces a lot of heat just like a traditional oven and this intern heats the air inside the glass bowl almost instantly this combined with a large fan to circulate air does all the cooking. All this is controlled by a temperature sensor accurately controlling the temperature inside the bowl giving even cooking throughout. No need to pre-heat as you would normally as the moment you turn it on it has instant heat.
You can cook all your food on a small or high rack that fits inside the bowl and you can use the many accessories that you can buy or in a lot of cases come free with your purchase to aid your cooking. Completely portable and multipurpose and only needs to be plugged into your normal mains socket . Anyone can learn to use it within a few minutes of unpacking and setting it up, it really is that simple.

This means that you could cook and brown a whole chicken complete with roast potatoes in around 35 minutes and because the fan circulates the hot air evenly around the oven you do not need to turn the food so no hot spots or cold spots making it fast easy and most of all tasty. Not only does this save you money but also your time making it even more desirable
Why use your large conventional cooker when you only need to heat a small area in this type of oven.

It’s also a very healthy way to cook as the fat drains to the bottom of the bowl leaving you with beautifully cooked food and it keeps all the moisture in leaving your food nice and succulent .

There is also a self clean function where you add hat water and washing up liquid to the glass bowl you then turn to wash and the fan circulates the water cleaning as it goes.
