Halogen Ovens Are Really Fast
Infrared light (aka "heat") is all well and good when you've got the time, but every now and then you need to nuke.
All microwave users are familiar with the downsides of speed, among them occasional sogginess and the total inability to brown. An upgrade to halogen light can solve those issues at near microwave speeds.
Halogen ovens combine the roasting, baking and broiling abilities of a traditional oven with the convenience of a microwave oven. Halogen cooking, which typically fuses a traditional electric heating element, a fan and a halogen bulb, is anywhere from 40 percent to 50 percent faster than regular cooking, and it can still produce a crisp result [source: JML].
A halogen/microwave combination oven can be a great upgrade for those who want to be able to quickly roast a juicy turkey but still have the option of nuking some microwave popcorn.
