COOKING WITH THE HALOGEN OVEN

Cooking time depends on the size, weight, type etc. of the food to be cooked Most meats come with recommended cooking times, but since halogen ovens cook faster than conventional ovens, you may need to adjust the cooking time
To ensure the food is cooked properly, use a cooking thermometer or pierce the food with a fork or skewer to check for signs of it being uncooked When cooking vegetables check for tenderness always check your food is fully cooked before serving

Distribute the food evenly in the halogen oven to ensure an even flow of air can circulate all around the food avoid stacking food in an attempt to cook more food, if air cannot circulate around the food, you will only fully cook the top always leave spaces for the air to travel
Cooking time may vary according to the weight of the food and individual taste When you become familiar with the oven you will be able to determine the best cooking times and temperatures to suit your personal preference Using the tongs to remove the cooking racks is advisable
