Hi there Chelseaken,

It sure is easy. If you are OK with experimenting, then you are in for some fun. The Halogen Oven (or HO) is very easy to use - and keep clean too. One of the tips is that when you are doing something greasy, line the bottom with foil - makes cleaning very easy. I did this recently and it came really clean.

Most of the recipes on our forum are tried and tested by the members who put them up. Don't forget though that if you cook a joint or chicken, you need to turn it over half way through or it will be cooked on top and raw underneath (thats a mistake I made).

As you are probably already aware, there are very few recipes and books available, which is why Reeta created this forum and we are all learning as we go through.

You'll be fine though, just remember the temperature is a little lower than you would use in the oven, and for smaller things (smaller in size and density) generally it is quicker too.

If you get stuck or need help or advice, don't hesitate to ask. Someone is bound to either have had the problem themselves or found out about it, and if not, then both Reeta and I are here to help if we can.

The best thing is to have fun and enjoy

Welcome again
