Hi all

Heads up to those interested - & I know you are  ;)

Aldi are doing a Halogen Oven, 40, starting Sunday. Looks very similar to the one I have - works great  :)

Ooh, thanks for the tip, Bev. Only about a 6 mile a drive to our nearest Aldi in Trowbridge, so will take a spin out there tomorrow  :)

Ooh cool.  I hope we have Aldi here.  I know they have them in the Republic of Ireland, I just haven't seen any near me in the North though.  Will have to look into that.  Thanks Bev.

Got one - thanks for the tip, Bev  :) Also got some little plastic drawer sets that will go under my work table and get some of the clutter out of the way.

I must search through the forum now for tips on using my lovely new toy!

I was experimenting last night with some scrap clay making a briar rose using some different sized circle cutters, and tested my new oven on it - it worked brilliantly, although the rose itself is a bit naff. I'll post a pic later. I will need to buy some smaller tiles to work and bake on as my current ones are too big to go in this oven, but they always have cheap ones in the sale bin at Homebase.

Oh, and my cats love the oven too. I found them both lying next to it soaking up the heat!

I assume there's a bowl you reach down into with this oven, so no flat bottom?   Can you fit something like the flat base of a loose-base flan tin in?  I just bake on paper or card, just so long as it's flat.

It's a glass bowl, and you get two different heights of grill stand with it, but I guess you can put you tile/card/paper just on the base of the bowl., as the bowl is a flat-bottomed one.
