Hello from North Norfolk. 62 years on and I'm now a halogen convert. But, wasn't all plain sailing. Bought a £39.99 all in Wolf machine from UKTV Home Shopping. Bad move. First oven fan worked with no halogen. Replacement lid received. Halogen worked and fan didn't. Grumpy customer services agreed to collect and credit. Two emails and two phone calls I eventually got the credit a month later! Would not recommend. Now we've got the Ideal World hinged machine. Well worth the extra. Fist effort, bought a Sainsbury 2kg Gammon befor Xmas. "You'll never eat all that" says veggie wife. "Don't worry it'll probably shrink like it does in the main fan oven." Low rack, extender ring, foil covered, 200c for 20 minutes, then 175 ish for good hour. Out, remove skin, criss cross cuts, dob with honey and back in uncovered until internal temperature hits 80 degrees. Meat thermometer is a must, as is a pair of Wilkinsons heat gloves! Did it shrink, did it heck as like. It still is (as still eating from frozen) the best gammon I have eaten in many a year, and only cost a tenner! Second major 'experiment' was an Aldi turkey crown. Having put this at the back of the freezer (in case of guests) I traditionally cooked a Tesco fresh turkey. I think it was the oldest in the farmyard. It was so tough and rubbishy, tesco got an email. NOW, the Aldi one. Knocked the Tesco one into a cocked hat. Again, low rack, extender ring and foil. No tarting with the turkey. Out of the packet and into the oven. Didn't even turn it over. 180 at 40mins per kg plus 40mins unfoiled. Prod with thermometer to reach 80 c. Sadly, they aint got no more....unless someone knows different.
