The 18537 Halogen Oven can also be much faster than cooking in a conventional oven meaning you can enjoy your creations in no time at all. It even has a defrost setting for when you haven't had time to prep anything or take anything out of the freezer.

The capacity of the main oven is a sizable 11-litre capacity but there is also the ability to add an additional 5-litres through the use of a stainless steel expansion ring resulting in a 16-litre total capacity.

What we have here is a 1400w halogen oven with an 11 litre capacity, extended to 16 litres by means of an extension ring - more on that later.

The oven is essentially a large glass bowl which stands upon a plastic pedestal. On top of the bowl sits the heater unit, basically a very hot bulb and a fan which in combination heat the air, and circulates it inside the bowl. When you turn it on you'll see a bright light. As the temperature reaches the desired setting,the heating filament switches off and the light goes out, but the fan continues to push the air around.

Typically you don't cook on the bottom of the glass because the air needs to reach the food - if it can't get at the food it can't heat it efficiently. So the oven comes with two racks, the bottom rack sits about a cm and a bit off the bottom of the bowl and the second rack stands over it leaving about a 2 inch gap. With both racks in use you'll need to use the extension ring for anything but the lowest profile meals on the top rack. Although the halogen oven circulates the air like a convention fan oven, there is a distinct grill effect, so anything close to the lamp will brown considerably quicker that what's underneath.

As an example, I make cheese on toast using a piece of frozen bread sitting on the top rack without the extension ring. I heat it for four to five minutes, flip it over and add grated cheese. When I flip it over the top of the bread will have browned while the bottom will be almost white.

You often see shots of halogen ovens packed full of food, all resting on the bowl, with no sign of any racks. I think it's fairly important to stress that if you tried to cook using the halogen oven like that it would be a disaster.

Say you want to make chicken and veg.

I did initially think gimmick but have to say this is fantastic and I couldn't be without it now. It cooks meat really really well, in fact I never use my standard oven for roasting joints anymore. This model is good as it has an extension unit so you can cook large joints of meat no problem. There's no waiting for the oven to heat up, it is the right temp straightaway. I haven't found it that much quicker than a standard oven, maybe the claims that it's 40% quicker are down to the no heating up waiting time? Another fave use is for jacket potatoes, again this cooks them perfectly everytime. I did a little background reading and some reviews say that veggies aren't the best in the halogen. To be honest I haven't tried, I have kept it simple and used as an additional cooker rather than my only cooker. It's really easy to clean, you just add a little bit of water and switch on for 10 mins and then you can practically just wipe clean, impressive. The only downsides I have found are (1) bread doesn't cook very well. This was an experiment but as I've said I'm not depending on this as an only oven so it doesn't bother me particularly. (2) The cord flops against the hot oven so you have to put a tea towel under it, seems a bit of a design flaw but again not really that annoying. I love that I don't always have to stick the big oven on, particularly for things like jackets, must be an energy saver. It is bright though, very bright, hence the title of this review. Have recommended to loads of friends, really great product.

Does what it says on the tin, cooks without oil, but browns the food and makes it juicy at the same time, kind of like a rotisserie, but more stewey. I usually cook a chicken stew in the oven, which consists of season chicken pieces, along with onions, thyme, peppers, garlic and tomatoes, cooks for around hour and a half for me and the food comes out lovely. You do have to turn over, stir and at some point might need to add just a little bit of water but it really is fuss-less considering how fussy cooking can be at times. I like it, have not cooked chips or anything, did lamb a few times but it seemed very long, overall hardly use my cooker for main cooking, dump everything in here and it works. If it broke down I would buy it again.

This is a very nicely made appliance. Feels sturdy. Looks very well made (as you would expect from Russell Hobbs).

Firstly, it works well as a halogen oven. So far, I have cooked sausages and a chicken in it and it worked nicely; evenly cooked sausages and the chicken was fine.

Why only 3* then......

This unit comes with a flimsy instructions sheet. There is no recipe book with the machine so I ordered 2 books on Amazon and had to wait for them to come through. There is a guide for rough cooking times for a selection of foods but not nearly enough and as this is a new concept for most people, a little more guidance would, I think, be an essential requirement.

There are 2 racks, an upper and a lower. It comes with a set of tongues to grab the lower rack to take it out. No instructions and it took quite a number of attempts to work out how the tongues are possibly able to grab the lower tray.

I have arthritis in my hands and I found this virtually impossible to do.

The only other complaint was that the lid unit has to be pushed down and engaged then locked in place before the unit can be used. This is a safety feature which is very welcome. It was very difficult to push down as it requires a lot of force to engage it into place. With my arthritis, it is very difficult also to unlock the lid to get the food out. This should really not be so difficult.

Other than that, I will continue to experiment - If I could give 3 1/2 stars, I would but I feel that the negatives are worth mentioning so only 3* I am afraid.
