Halogen Virgin :-)

Post  Monkey on 19.01.13 19:34

Hi All, I`m Andrew not a real Monkey although I
admit I Love my PG Tips. Very Happy
Anyway I was in Aldi on Sunday and bought one of their Halogen ovens for the princely sum of £29:99p.
The instruction manual explains Nothing really (especially to a Thicko like me) and No Recipes, poor show there I reckon.
So as I had no idea what to do whether to ride it or wash my smalls in it, I went to Amazon Uk and ordered a cuple of books, The Everyday Halogen Oven Cookbook by Sarah Flower and the Hamlyn 200 halogen oven recipes.
What do you experts think of these and did I pick the right ones please?
I have to admit that I am a bit scared of this as I am not the greatest cook out there so I looked for some forums as the YouTube vidoes are frankly Crap and here I am. Smile
Please treat me gentle as I dont Bite.
Can anyone point me in the right direction for some very simple things to start with and Temps and timings if you dont mind.
I hope to hear from you Good People soon. Smile

Andrew.

Hello and Welcome Andrew
I am sure, when you have time, if you go through the sections on the home page, you will find what people think of recipe books, find recipes and tips and you will be well on your way to using your oven.
I think we all started out clueless, with the instruction books we got.
Take Care

I almost bought one from Aldi myself however I was lucky enough to find one in my local Morrissons at £4 less.

Like you I bought it on the Sunday so in a few hours it will be a week old.

I have used it every day since then cooking chips, stuffed mushrooms fish fingers, pies etc.

I will soon be using mine to cook sausages ( 10 mins on top shelf).

Aldi shopper too

I also bought one from Aldi today, and similarly was expecting some guidance! Found the forum while looking for recipies, so its now in my favorites. As well as recipies, I would also like to know why temperatures up to 200C are shaded, and those above not? I've been on utube and some of the chicken videos look completely unappetising and still seem to take about the same amount of time> Will we have to miss out on proper gravy? Thanks for your help. Pippy I\'m stupid I\'m new here

Looks like we all had the same idea with the snow on the ground, as I too purchased one from Morrisons yesterday. Have had a go as has my son with some success. Having found the website and forum I am now looking forward to trying some of the recipes. My name is Andrea by the way.

Hello and Welcome to you both.
My way of doing gravy, put alfoil in the bottom of the bowl under the rack and up sides a little so it catches the drippings, when meat is cooked pour this into a saucepan put on stove add flour and salt and pepper and stir to form a paste add water to made gravy.
I use alfoil in the bottom all the time as it seems to give more heat to the bottom of the oven.
Hope this helps
Take Care

Yes I second that. I have already tried out a few things including yorkshire puddings which came out really well - well I had to coming from Yorkshire. Very Happy
