    @Ren Tanner
    Appears to have Halogen-type lamps, maybe quite a few? Is yours just like the pic in the link, or similar? New product, for me, I'm interested, since microwave energy is thought to destroy phytochemicals in veggies.

    This is the first time I've heard of that halogen oven. And it looks convenient to use. When I got a job, my first investment was the turbo broiler. It is similar but just a bit bigger than that halogen oven. The top cover has the coils that gives the heat when turned on. It is also easy to use like a portable oven although the space for cooking is limited. But for us, we don't buy appliances that just came out in the market, we wait for some feedback from our circle. Like the conduction stove, we had almost bought one and it's a good thing that my husband carefully read the literature and he found out that such stoves can only function with pans and pots that are designed for conduction cooking. In other words, our existing pots and pans cannot be used in that stove.

    That's interesting Ren. I doubt we'll ever get one though, we have so many things taking up counter space.

    It cooks a mean roast chicken and roast potatoes. I haven't got one now but did have plus it has a wash cycle on. All done and dusted in one go.

    I remember you mentioning this a while back on another forum Ren...

    I'd love to try one but like Sheldon I just don't have enough counter space..

    Hi Holly you can put them away in a cupboard. I had a weeny kitchen a few years back when I lived on my own and it was ideal. Just brought it out when I needed it.

    I did have a conventional oven as well but hardly used it.

    I just can't stand to have too many things on my counter, especially ugly looking things. :)

    I even put my toaster away a few years ago. I'm weird, I know.

    Ha ha Chrissy you made me laugh ;-) I don't like a lot of clutter either. I go to a friend's for coffee and she has masses of stuff. She always says to me "what are you mentally de cluttering"

    Each to their own.

    I hate clutter as well ,a friend has one of those turbo cookers but they are soooo bulky ..her cupboard tops are like a jumble sale :( that would really irritate me :p....I use the toaster most days but it go's back in the cupboard after a it's cooled down ..any mixers or other electrical appliances are stored in the pantry or a deep drawer
    Only "clutter"that's on my bench tops is a coffee machine ( his) the kettle ,coffee /tea / sugar ( for visitors ) and a fruit bowl

    Halogen cooking seems healthier and quick. I've never heard of it until you mentioned it.

    I have a Hamilton Beach convection oven and no big stove. It sets on it own counter, and a hotplate, collapsible/propane grill for the beach and home. Don't like heating up the whole trailer, but have one big fridge. When the kids come down we eat out or grill a lot. Just love fish fried and make my Tempura Batter, dip strips in it. Make my cole slaw, with honey mayonnaise, little salt & pepper. Deep fry only with Peanut Oil it has the best flash point and never olive oil it alters the taste.:)

    The Pic was taken in New Zealand 20010 where I bought my first oven. The next two were just like it and bought in the U.S .via Amazon.com. Sure works great on the patio and much better than the fuss of Bar B Q.

    I have a friend who swears by his convection oven. He sold his regular range and when he cooks he either uses a convection oven or a microwave. He just was not getting any use out of the range, so he decided he didn't need it. I love my oven, but if it is something small, I will use the toaster oven which of course is more effcient. I think efficiency is the key.
