A halogen oven is a type of oven that uses a halogen lamp as its heating element to cook food. Halogen ovens are more energy-efficient than other traditional ovens, since the halogen heating element reduces the necessary cooking times.
The heating chamber of a halogen oven consists of a transparent glass bowl that has a removable lid. The oven uses metal racks to elevate the food during preparation process. The basic model has a handle to allow users to remove the lid safely, while more elaborate models have a mounted, hinged lid. HHalogen ovens with these hinged lids are safer and easier to use.
