i have one and its great. you have to use it to get used to it. i have a smart has 3 lights green, low power, amber, medium power. red is high power. when i use my normal electric oven, it switches to amber then green when at the correct temp. the halogen stays on green all the time its cooking. i only cook for 2 and it does save money. wouldnt be without it.

Tks everyone. Sorry for delay in replying, got an urgent call from daughter, ran out of petrol and had no cards or money with her. They leave the family home but you still have to do odd rescue bit .

Think I will be purchasing halogen but have also taken on board Ronald's posting.

Tks once again.

I have one and I love it. Everything I have cooked has turned out wonderful. I would (and have done so) recommend it.

I prefer a small worktop oven. Can cook (for example) couple of chops, roast spuds/parsnips and it does wot a hal' oven wont and thats warming plates up on the top of the oven! Cooks joints OK, has a grill. Works off 13amp plug, hots up quick. We've got both types. OH uses hal oven very occasionally I use worktop oven.

Just to add to it re saving energy costs I cook veg using electric steamer - everything in one container, has rice cooker etc. Cooks veg in 30 mins - after 20 mins chuck in the Broc'

Does anyone have one, if so are they worth having or are they just another way of getting us to spend our hard earned cash?

OH and I are empty nesters and I feel putting on a large oven for the two of us is a bit expensive and thought the oven maybe the answer.

Any feedback welcome
