Many people ask: “What is it turbo (halogen oven)?”

According to https://learn.compactappliance.com/what-is-a-halogen-oven/ : “These ovens use a bright halogen light to produce heat, which is spread throughout the oven via the fan. The temperature inside is controlled by a thermostat, which means the light knows when to turn on and off at will. They not only save space due to being quite a bit smaller than conventional ovens, but they’re also capable of cooking food nearly three times faster.

Turbo (halogen oven) has too many advantages:

  • You can cook everything in one pot
  • Turbo oven cooks much much faster, then other ovens
  • Food in these ovens is very visible – you can see it throughout the cooking
  • This is fat-free cooking, you don’t need to use any oil
  • Food cooking in a turbo (halogen) oven turns very juicy and delicious
