HO v Conventional cooker

Post  Guest on 06.06.11 22:07

Good evening all,
Now we are tod that HO's are more t effective, quicker etc to ues, but are they really?

3 of us got together and cooked 3 identical dishes in our HO's and then cooked the same in conventional ovens.

All Ho's were different and all regular cookers are different. I was elected to make the dishes so that way we all knew they were identical.

The results were somewhat surprising.....everything cooked at the same temp and time in the HO as in the conventional ovens, all except Maris Piper pots that cooked 5 mins less in our HO's.

Would love to hear your comments and views on this

Kind Regards
Caz

Hi Caz

We have all found that the manufacturers claims are OTT for HO's but it does depend what you cook.

I find that for cooking roasts like chicken, pork or beef, the cooking time is substantially reduced. I use lower fan oven temperatures and slightly shorter times on dishes that cook more quickly. Overall the HO is cheaper to run than a 'big' oven so, for me, it's worthwhile.

Hi June,
I know what your saying about manufacturers claims, think that one goes right across the board lol.

As I cook an awful lot time isn't really an issue with me, when it's cooked it's cooked! Personally I think there's times when we have to tweak a recipe, time or method at time.

I'd not be without my HO now I must be honest about that, when I think I held off buying it because a friend of mine had one that caught fire with her yorkies in.

I was just curious as to what others thought or had found.

Kind Regards, Caz

Hi Caz

I'm the same about time and don't mind tweaking - I just want my food to be cooked properly.

My Ho is used almost every day and I'd really miss it now.

Any other opinions, folks Question
