My halogen oven arrived at Christmas and it has taken me this long to pluck up the courage to try it!
The toast was great but the pineapple upside down cake, a huge step from toast I know but the cookbook said it was not difficult.
Anyway it cooked on the top but when I turned it out it was not cooked in the centre.
What did I do wrong?
I have an Andrew James oven and I preheated to 180ish, the temperature increments are not that clear so it may have been just over 180.
Is it a case of keep trying because I don't want to feel too downhearted!
I look forward to sharing the ups and downs of this amazing cooking method.

(Is it a case of keep trying because I don't want to feel too downhearted!)This is exactly how it is when you are a new HO user. Experiment a few times and you will get it right for you.
Not cooking in the centre is an issue with cakes and other baking. Here's a few tips: preheat your oven, cook on high rack with extender ring on top. Reduce the given temp and cook for longer if needed.
We are happy to see you on board.
