General cooking advice

Post  Rapporman on 24.01.12 20:40

I have just bought my first halogen oven and am not into creating food from recipies. I just want to be able to heat pies, pasties, bacon, eggs, toast etc ie those items that do not do well in my microwave oven. However, apart from the very limited instructions in the manufacturers manual, the only books available appear to be devoted to cooking from recipies. Do any of you know of a guide or cook book that describes how to heat basic foods as I have described. I know I should be more adventurous but at my age, I am past all that.!! Very Happy

Hi Rapporman

You can find answers to most of your questions by typing what you are looking for into the search box, eg 'fried eggs, 'toast' or 'bacon' for example. There are previous posts on all of the above.

If you follow fan oven instructions to start you off and reduce the temperature and times a bit you won't go far wrong. Use the top rack at a fairly high heat for grilling - you can see what's happening inside.
If you can't find what you need, then please ask and we'll try to help you.

Good Luck

Always use a rack. Hot air must circulate all around the tin.

If you use an extender ring, you can place the cake tin on the high rack.

Good luck with your cake
delicious

Hi cook21

Cakes have been a bit of a problem area. Trying a lower temperature for longer has helped in some cases and always preheat when baking. If you have room the hot air circulates best when using the high rack with an extender ring in place.
