Turning oven off

Post  netresources on 10.05.11 16:47

I am new to the halagon oven. If I want to check on an item in the oven wen its is cooking do I just turn the timer to off. As the timer seems hard to move.
Thanks, JuDea

Hi JuDea

No, never turn the timer towards the 0 - simply lift the handle to stop the oven. You need to let the timer get back by itself. As long as the handle is raised the oven won't come back on.

Hi JuDea, Just to expand on what Junie said about never turning the timer backwards--don't know why, but it's true. However, the timer is totally manual (at least it is on my JML oven) and even when you unplug your oven, the timer will continue to count down, so it shouldn't be a problem. When I'm finished cooking, I usually just turn the temperature to 0 or unplug the oven and let the timer time out.

Hi - here is an explanation I found -

"Even in this 21st Century, some appliances like microwave and convection ovens still come with mechanical timers. These are the kind that you have to turn a knob, and that tick like old clocks.

A common problem with those timers is that, when you want to set a short time interval, they don't move at all. Mechanical timers derive their energy from a spring that is wound up as you set the time with their knob. The larger your time interval, the more energy they have to start working. Friction and dirt sometimes prevent them from starting if the time interval is very short."

I hope this helps to explain the workings of the timer a little

I'd like to see a HO with a digital timer, must be possible. Then we'd have more control over cooking time.

I owned a digital halogen oven years ago...It was good, had three air settings and different buttons for preheat, warm, etc. Is the one in the photograph programmable? One of the brands sold here in Spain is, as far as I know.
Anyway, once one is used to a halogen oven...the results are not much better with a digital one. I doubt it's worth paying the extra money.
This is the one that is programmable.This means you can set it to start cooking after, say, six hours, to find your meal ready when you get home from work from instance.
