Hi Junie, purchased my prolectric HO few weeks ago from Robert Dyas and have been experimenting almost daily with many sucessful outcomes especially where grilling concerned as seems more straight forward and like conventional grilling having close heat source. I find it gets more tricky with bake type dishes ie. sheps pie when the top tends to cook quickly and even burn leaving the bottom barely hot. I'm sure it is about getting temp setting right and knowing when to adjust. Also if you try to cover things with foil to stop burning foill flies to top due to fan. Any tips? Thanks alot. Smile

Hi and welcome

Welcome

It sounds as if you are already off to a good start.

I know what you mean with bake type dishes. I find lowering the heat and giving the dish longer helps. A bit of trial and error will get you there.

Also if I have a dish that gets brown too quickly, there are two ways that I try.

I either raise the heat source with the extender ring or use foil. As you have found, you do need to tuck the foil in well so that it can't take off.

Hope this helps and good luck with your cooking. Chef

Hi Rwrite
I am not sure if I put my special cottage pie on my recipe forum.
If not I will include this one on the site.
I am a chef and i had some problems like you all with getting recipes correct with this type of oven.
What i would recommend is that you precook your minced beef and veg first until it is practically cooked through.
Then remove the dish with the tongs put your mashed potato on the top and brush with melted butter and cook on about 175deg.
This will brown lovely and all will be cooked at the same time and be warmed all the way through.
Hope this helps.

i have been given a halogen oven, but need a couple of recipes just to try it out, any suggestions? Also when doing a roast chicken can i put the chicken straight in so its on the bottom of the oven or does it need to be on the rack?

Hi Jules2

welcome

There are plenty of recipes for you to try in the A-Z and loads of hints and tips around the rest of the forum. Have a look at the chicken recipes for help. The chicken does need to be on the bottom rack to let the heat circulate underneath - as you will see on the recipes it also needs to be turned.
