The Rosewill R-HCO-15001 Infrared Halogen Convection Oven is known for its use of triple heating methods—convection, halogen and infrared.
The combined heating technology allows for a fast cooking, without leading to uneven uncooked portions, even without the prerequisite defrosting of the frozen food or the preheating process. Cooking your food this way makes it more convenient and lesser time consuming.
The multiple functions of the convection oven is also a feature that cannot be easily taken for granted. The appliance is very versatile with its broiling, baking, roasting, grilling, steaming, frying without oil, defrosting and disinfecting capabilities.
It is also to the advantage of the convection oven that is easy to clean and maintain. The convection oven has a glass body that is easily washable while the two cooking racks are stackable, adjustable and removable for convenient aftercare.
The capacity of the convection oven is also to be applauded for its normal capacity can hold up to 12 liters. This capacity, however, can be easily extended to 17 liters with the use of an extender ring that comes together with the purchase.
The convection oven may not be digital but the dials for timer and the settings for temperature are user friendly and easy to decipher.
Finally, the convection oven is ETL approved. It is the perfect appliance for those who are health conscious because the convection oven cooks with minimal to no oil.
Furthermore, it keeps the moistness and the nutrients inside the food, as well as keeping the taste intact. It does not hurt that with the convection oven comes other accessories that will make using the appliance easier and more convenient.
Along with the convection oven itself are 2 cooking racks, 1 extender ring, and a set of tongs. The convection oven is also not wanting when it comes to design aspects; the appliance has a modern look that works well with almost all decors.
Also, the convection oven weighs only 9 lbs.—a perfect portable and countertop appliance for the kitchen or any outdoor party.
The Rosewill R-HCO-15001 Infrared Halogen Convection Oven has many advantages but there is a question as to whether it can last long.
The halogen bulb is sensitive to and not protected against splatters and substances, so care should be given in making sure that the bulb remains untouched by your food, or anything that comes out of it, while cooking inside the convection oven. It also adds to the difficulty when the bulb cannot be easily replaced.
The convection oven also dries the interior portion of the food, leaving the food without moistness. Also, the convection oven is not digital, so there is a need to adjust the dials in order to get the setting right.
Finally, the convection oven emits a bright light—too bright, claim some—when cooking which others can mistake as the appliance being on fire.
The Rosewill R-HCO-15001 Infrared Halogen Convection Oven is a combination of modern style and function. And although there are some downsides to using the convection oven, which should be considered well before buying, it is still a product that can be tagged with the phrase “money well spent.”
