Hi - guess what, I have a halogen cooker too! :)

Post  chriscard on 28.01.12 11:57

Hi all Laughing

I'm sure my story is oh so familiar to you, but I'll say it anyway...! I just bought a halogen oven (Andrew James 12l) and it's all new to me so I'm in search of info on how to make the best use of it. I read a number of Amazon reviews slating the cook book which accompanies the cooker so I'm unsure how much faith to put in it.

I've spent all of 30 secs looking at the forum so far, so best I go off reading some threads and see what's what?! Only other thing to say is I've just (ten minutes ago) used my new oven to cook a pizza (Tesco thick base type) and results were far from perfect. Perfect topping but very floppy and undercooked base. Rather than post asking for advice on this I'll read the forum first as I have no doubt this will have been discussed before Smile

So for now, hello & I hope I stick around and don't become a "hit n run" forum user who only swings by once then disappears never to be seen again! Cool

Hi again and thanks for the warm welcome Smile I've had a look around and there's certainly a lot of recipes to try - maybe in time I will be able to contribute one or two.

Based on a post I found (I think it was by Junie) it seems the solution to my pizza problem might be to pre-heat the oven then use the extender ring and put the pizza on the high rack. Will give that a try tomorrow.

Hi Chris
I am new to the forum also having recently purchased and Andrew James HO. Pork loin Joint was really nice. Not quite there yet with the oven chips. Had friends taying lat weekend so thought i would try breakfarts in HO. Put bacon on bottom rack and sausages on top rack used ER. Turned out ok but of course fat from sausages dripped onto bacon and i had to finish bacon on top rack. Did the same again next morning except I put susages on the baking tray on top rack. Need to have a look to see how others do their fry ups.

Hi NiftyFifty (are you a photographer?) Smile

as luck would have it I noticed the following thread earlier when I was having a browse around:

http://halogenovenrecipes.forumotion.com/t1656-all-day-breakfast-with-andrew-james?highlight=all+day+breakfast

It might prove to be a more effective method for what you're trying to achieve. Good luck!

Thanks for the allday breakfast link. Had a look. Certainly looks a bit more organised than mine. Will try it out. No I'm not a photographer!!

Ah I see. I asked because "niftyfifty" is a nickname given to a 50mm lens by some photographers. That's the only place I heard of it before Smile
