Extender Rings

Post  Mr Illusive on 28.10.10 18:19

If you have one of these, they can be very useful for preventing burnt food on top and undercooked bases. I'm not too familiar with many of the other makes, but my old one wasn't great for cooking underneath and quite often if I put a pizza in there and cooked it, chances are it would need enough time to allow for the base of it to cook enough.

I use the mid level grills so that air can get underneath and flow well, as well as raising the height of the heating element using the metallic rings that fit on top of the main bowl. These don't come with every HO, but they can be useful.

Yeah I tend to keep mine on most of the time. I'll be interested to see how this new one fares compared to the old one, however as it looks almost identical i'd presume it's pretty much the same.

You must be an avid HO enthusiast with 381 posts in a HO dedicated forum haha :P

Hi Mr Illusive

I just think that my HO is a great appliance. I found this forum earlier this year as, like most, my HO didn't provide much useful info.

Before long Reeta asked me to help with the day to day moderating of the forum and the posts have certainly racked up to quite a total.

No need to certify me yet, though - I promise you that I do have a life lol!

haha, well it's all good and interesting to see such a forum. Niche forums are great when you are after really specific info on a product or service etc. HO's are rising in popularity though over the last year over here.

agree
I think they will continue to rise in popularity everywhere and maybe, just maybe, the manufacturers might start to supply some useful info with their products.

Hi Susan

No need to use it for things that brown and cook through quickly. It is required for anything needing longer cooking to stop the top overcooking before the bottom cooks through.

Hope this helps Very Happy

I never cook on the bottom rung, the heat doesn't seem to get to the undersides of food. I always use the top rung and my extender ring, everything cooks perfectly.

Hi yogini01uk

It is never silly to ask a question when you don't know something. We all started not knowing anything about these great little ovens.

It is an accessory supplied with some ovens which increases the capacity of your oven. It's a big metal ring that sits between the top of the glass bowl and the lid increasing the height.
Most of us would agree that it's really a necessity as the heat circulates much better when using the top rack. Without the ring some foods would burn as the heat source is too close.
Here is a link to one that Amazon have for sale (I'm not trying to sell it - just enclosing the link so you can see what one looks like)

I much prefer to cook on the top grill and use an extender ring, the heat then gets to the bottom of the food.

Hello I'm new here today
Can anyone just give me some simple advice on when to use the extender ring?

Probably a very simple answer but was given a Halogen oven with no instruction. Can someone please start me off?
Thanks

Hello and Welcome
I use the extender ring when I cook bread, roasts anything that needs the extra height to fit into oven without touching the element on the lid.
If you read through the recipes they usually say if to use the ring or not also which rack, if using the high rack I use the ring.
Hope this helps.
Take Care

I had no idea what the extender ring was for , when i unpacked my HO it was sat around the outside of the bowl and i couldnt work out how it could possibly extend the oven lol ....i didnt realise you had to place it on top of the bowl !!! Thank goodness I came to this forum and found out how to use it lol!
