Thoughts and recommendations would be good, please? We have successfully reduced our electricity bill down to £44, just notified this morning. But I have missed using the little mini oven that I bought from Lidl a few years ago - the thermostat failed and it just started burning everything, so I had to throw it out.
What should I get to replace it?
I have two options, I think - a small halogen oven, or another mini oven. I want something versatile enough to cope with the YFG's favourites of scampi, hash browns, and fish in batter with oven chips, and the occasional pizza, as well as baked potatoes and chicken portions too. I don't make as many cakes as I used to, but if I could make cakes in it as well, so much the better.
The small oven I had from Lidl (in the photo) was very reasonably priced, I think, at about £29.99 or so, but the problem with Lidl and Aldi is that I could be waiting months for them to stock the product again! I could buy one from Argos anytime, but probably have to pay more.
I have never had a halogen oven before, but I have read that some people love them. I have had a Remoska in the past, and still have it, but I don't find it terribly user-friendly and wouldn't want the YFG using it as it gets so hot to the touch.
I'd love to hear your thoughts and recommendations, please.
