I have always preferred not to use an extender ring if possible so say for cooking a chicken would the 12 litre be the best option ?
Does using the ring extend the cooking times or temperatures settings?
I am considering buying this oven

The 12 litre HO is definitely the one to buy even if you are cooking for one person.
It gives you more space to manoeuvre the food - such as when turning a roast chicken over
I know a few people who bought the small one and regretted their choice.
You don't always have to use the extender ring but it is a useful tool when cooking food such as breads, cakes, pastries, etc...
Because the heat is coming from the top, it tends to cook the top layer of the food too fast while the inside and underneath is still uncooked /soggy.
The ER takes the heat source higher up giving the food a chance to cook inside without burning the top layer.
(Does using the ring extend the cooking times or temperatures settings?)the temperatures settings control the cooking times - lower setting, longer cooking time whether you use the extender ring or not.
Having said that, some food are best cooked at lower temp and for longer if needed.
I have the same oven and I am happy with it.
