Has anyone on here got a Halogen oven, and if so is it possible to make Cornish pasties in it? I have just had  an oven bought for me and I'm keen to use it and as I planned pasties for tea I just wondered

I have a small halogen oven and it does everything a full size oven will do.  Not that I have a full size oven, just a large "toaster" oven, but the halogen one is much easier and quicker to use.  I have not used the other oven since I got the little halogen one.

Come to think of it, I do not have a proper hob either, just a three-burner gas hob, but I use my single induction hob instead.  And I cook in my microwave.  Anything to make life easier!

Amazon had some ultra cheap cookbooks for halogen ovens - no idea if they still have them - but they taught me all I needed to know.

Thinking about it, when there is only me to cook/prepare food for [Tikva is raw fed], why would I need a "proper" cooker when small appliances are so much more useful for me?
