Do you ever wish that you could just snap, and cooking was easy. You know, you were able to just pull chicken right out of the freezer, toss it in the oven, and have dinner ready in about thirty minutes? Finding tools that make my life a little easier puts a smile on my face. There is only so much time in the day to get everything done that needs done. Which is why I am super excited to share the Halogen Tabletop Oven with you.
The Halogen Tabletop Oven is a nice sized cooker that allows you to cook up meals 50% faster and 75% more energy-efficient than your traditional conventional oven. Not only does it cook faster, everything I have used it for tastes better. There is more juices, more flavor, and my taste buds just love it.It uses a powerful halogen heating and convection system, which circulates heated air nice and even around the oven. Which makes things cook faster, more evenly, and taste so good.
Using the Fagor America Halogen Tabletop Oven is easy. Just turn it on, set the timer, flip whatever your cooking, set the timer, allow to sit, and your done in about 20 minutes. It includes everything you need to get started like:
- Large glass body – Which is large enough to fit a 16 pound turkey in.
- Tongs – Used to flip meats or life racks out of oven, and perfectly life the racks out of the oven without any issues.
- Stainless steel extender – This is a ring that adds an extra 5 quart your Halogen Ovens capacity.
- Two stackable cooking racks – There is an upper and lower rack, which is removable, used independently, or simultaneously.
- Non-stick pan – Used for cook on, but also makes a great catcher for any juices that might fall into the cooker. It’s super easy to clean as well.
- Lid support – The lid is different from normal lids, but it’s what gives the Halogen Oven that awesome light that cooks so evenly.
- Cooking Dial and Timer Dial – Use them to set the temperature and timer.
- ETL Approved
The Halogen Tabletop Oven does it all. You can use it to steam, roast, broil, or grill. This oven is super powerful, does the work of several appliances, and makes amazing meals. It has a 1400W halogen heating element that helps to cook your meals, and an internal fan that circulates the hot air to help cook your food faster and more evenly, while sealing in all the juices. Which makes whatever you are cooking taste amazing!
This awesome Halogen Oven does some pretty big things In the kitchen, which makes it nice that it’s compact and portable. It is perfect for our kitchen, not to mention over to my mother-n-laws house. Now let me tell you what I think about the Halogen Tabletop Oven. GET ONE, you will love it. Seriously they are amazing. I have used it to cook more than my oven for several reasons:
- It makes better, more flavorful food
- Takes less time
- Doesn’t heat up the house the way your traditional oven does Heats up instantly
- Cooks nice and even Cleaning is a breeze
The first night I received my Halogen Oven I watched the video that came along with it. On the video they tell you that it’s okay to place frozen chicken, steak or whatever else in the oven. Now here is the kicker, they also tell you that it only takes about 20 minutes to cook this frozen chicken, and yes I thought the same thing. Yea right, there is no way it will only take 20 minutes to completely cook a frozen chicken breast. However, it did take exactly 20 minutes.
First I placed my almost completely frozen chicken breasts in the Halogen Oven, turned it on, and set the timer for 10 minutes. I couldn’t help but stand there and stare at the chicken cooking. You can watch how fast it cooks. Once the timer went off I used the tongs, flipped my chicken, and set for another 20 minutes. Guess what? It was not only complexly cooked, but the best chicken I have ever tasted!
The next night we made steak. I placed the frozen steak in the oven, set for 10 minutes, flipped, set for another 10 minutes, and once again it was amazing. The Halogen oven seals in those natural juices that make your meat taste so good. Another perk is the glass bowl that allows you to see and watch your food while it’s cooking. Just love that!
I have used our Halogen Oven to cook almost every single night since we received it. It came with a recipe book, and there is also one online at Fagoramerican.com. You can cook just about anything you can think up with this bad boy. Check out a few of the many things you can make:
- Vegetables Quesadillas
- Baked Potatoes
- Pizza Rolls
- Chicken Breasts
- Chicken Wings
- Beef fajita’s
- Roasted Salmon
- Cheesecake Bars
Now that is one huge list of things you can cook with the oven. The best part about it is that I don’t have to remember to take meat out of the oven anymore. When I am ready to make dinner all I have to do is grab the meat out of the freezer. You can also it to warm frozen French fries, tater tots, onion rings and it only takes 16 minutes at 450 degrees. Frozen hamburgers cooked in 14 minutes, frozen pork chops 15 minutes, and sirloin steak that is 1 inch thick only takes 14 minutes on each side.
Cleaning, it wouldn’t be a complete review if we did not talk about cleaning. Everything about this cooker is easy, cleaning included. It includes a self-cleaning mode, and is dishwasher safe. As soon as we finish dinner we always do the dishes, but cleaning is always easy.
If you enjoy baking, cooking, grilling, and just about everything else you’re going to love the Halogen Tabletop Oven! While writing this review I decided to swing by Amazon and see how much it costs. I was honestly thinking several hundred dollars, in my option it would be worth every single penny. I almost fell over when I found it for only $79.95! I would definitely buy this product again, and again. It saves me time and lets me cook some pretty tasty meals for my family. They have all noticed the difference, especially in meat that is cooked using it.
