Best Convection Ovens

Updated on August 15, 2015

Convection ovens (which are sometimes called turbo ovens) function by using a fan to distribute heat through the cooker so that food cooks evenly. You can get standard convection ovens, but also convection cookers that use halogen lamps as a heat source (which makes the cooking way faster than in a normal oven).

This page lists the best convection ovens on the market at the moment. We've chosen those powered with halogen lamps as they really save time and energy when cooking (they usually cook in a third of the time of a normal cooker).

Sharper Image Halogen, Convection & Infrared Heat Countertop Oven

This cooker is powered by a halogen and infra-red lamp, which sits inside the lid.

As a result food cooks three times as fast in this device (and you can cook safely from frozen).

The glass bowl has a 12 1/2 quart capacity, and comes with two stainless steel racks (so you can cook more than one item at a time) plus an extender ring (to raise the height of the oven).

You get a 1 year limited warranty with this plus 25 recipe cards.

Flavorwave Turbo Cooker

The Flavorwave Turbo Oven was the original breakthrough turbo cooker, and remains the most popular brand.

It uses a halogen infrared lamp in the lid, and comes with a dishwasher safe glass bowl. (The oven also has a self-cleaning feature if you don't want to use the dishwasher).

It comes with a rack on which you can place items that need roasting so that the fats drip down. Amazon are selling this with free shipping.

Sunpentown Multi Function Round Shaped 12 Liter Convection Oven

This convection cooker has the heating element in the lid. The food goes into a glass bowl of 12 liter capacity (big enough to cook a chicken) and heats up to 500F. It comes with a cooking rack so that fats can drain away to the bottom of the bowl when roasting.

It is simple to operate - you set the temperature you want and then set the timer (5 minutes to 60 minutes) which powers the oven up. That's it! You can cook anything in it that you can make in a normal oven, only cooking time is speeded up..
