7 Ltre or 12 Litre Oven

Post  rfk68 on 06.02.12 6:07

Hi,

Simple question from a newbie simpleton!! Question

What's the ideal size oven for a single person??

I've not seen any Halogen ovens up close and am totally new to this game.

A 7 litre one is on it's way from Amazon UK as I speak (write!) but should I have gone for a 12 litre size?? I understand the one ordered comes with an extender ring as part of the accessories.

Thanks for any advice / info Shocked

Hi rfk68

There's only the two of us so I bought the 7 litre one. I thought it would take up less space in my touring caravan too. I managed but it can be quite difficult to find cookware to fit it and hard to get hot dishes in and out of. You can't fit very much onto the racks either.

When Aldi had their special offer last year I bought the big one and to be honest, I haven't used the small one since - not even in the caravan. We take the big one with us now. I find it much easier to use even though it does take up more worktop space.

I suppose it depends what you want to cook in it in order to decide what is right for you. For me, it would be the big one every time.
Size does matter Wink

Hi June,

Thanks for your advice and reply.

Looks like I may have made a bit of a mistake buying the 7" size but I'll see how it goes.

On reflection it may have been better to buy a 12" one than the smaller size

In true Carry On style I suppose you can do more with a bigger one.........ooooohhh matron!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Embarassed

Anyway, thanks again for your kind help. I'll give this one a whirl and see how I get on. I can always graduate to a 12" H/O later.

Cheers Very Happy

Yes rfk68 at least the smaller oven will give you a chance to evaluate HO cooking. I don't regret buying mine - they are great little ovens.

If you can hold off the Aldi offers seem to come round once a year - they give you the big HO, all accessories and an included 3 year guarantee for £29.99.

I wish I could say I don't remember the Carry On films but.... Embarassed lol!

Hi June,

Ha ha....... Well, I can just about "vaguely" remember Kenneth Williams and his cohorts......!!!! Embarassed

Hmmmm. Interesting. Like you say I suppose the 7L oven is a good way of being introduced to halogen cooking and it's probably worth keeping an eye out for the Aldi offer for the 12L size.

That said, I would assume the two size ovens would complement each other??

A friend of mine purchased one a few months ago (12L) and hasn't used her regular oven since. Her hubby swears by it and says the food tastes much better than before so it was her who persuaded me to try the 7L size for starters. Mind you, she is from Eccles....!!!!

Nothing lost I suppose and plenty to gain.

The Aldi offer is every 12 months you say??

Thanks again for your kind help Very Happy

I wouldn't have enough worktop space for both lol!

Aldi had this offer on the 16th January this year and to my knowledge they had it on the two previous years as well.... who knows....

I certainly won't cook any of my roasts any other way now. My HO is my most used kitchen item - if it's not being used for cooking the meal, I heat my plates in it Very Happy

Hi June,

Looks like it's down to ALDI next January then!!! 7up

Either way, though, from what I've read on here it seems halogen is THE way to go for cooking. It's really surprised (shocked, even Shocked ) me just how many people have ditched their conventional ovens and now only used their halogen ones clap

And with the 1000's of recipes out there you just can't go wrong Eating

Like I say, I'll give the 7L oven a whirl but I can see a trip to ALDI (or Amazon) coming on very shortly!!

Thanks again for your advice and comments thank you

Kind regards.

I have the 12lt but we are family of 5 so we need big, my mum (who got me hooked onHO) has 7lt one and its just the two of the she manages fine to do small 3person size raosts etc and also copes to bash something together when my 3 kids turn up for after school tea like pizza.

Hi,

Thanks for that. Interesting.......

I was beginning to think I might have made a bit of a mistake buying the 7L size but it looks like all is not lost Laughing

Trial and error I suppose - time will tell!!
