Firefly Halogen Table Top Heater from Primrose

The post Firefly Halogen Table Top Heater from Primrose appeared first on Us Two Friends. 1kw Halogen Bulb Electric Table Top Infrared Heater with Rattan Base. In the evenings we have been using camping lights but they can be a bit bulky on the table but the halogen in the heater is so bright that we can ditch the camping ones and leave them for when we have a power cut (it’s East Anglia we always seem to get them here – oh the joys of living in London when we stopped having them in the 70s). The halogen bulb should last 5000 hours which is ample – 208 days and 8 hours which at the rate we use it will means it’ll last quite a long time (I can’t be doing with the calculations as I’m peri-menopausal at present and so calculations annoy me as much as American TV shows right now)

What do you think of my Halogen Oven. So do you have a Halogen Oven. They take about 30mins to cook in my fancy new halogen oven but used to take around 40mins in my conventional oven, turning over half way through. 30mins to cook in my fancy new halogen oven but used to take around

I spent a while last year without the use of an oven, and we all managed admirably with the hob, microwave, steamer and halogen cooker

I have broken the halogen heater out of storage though, if I take my glasses off and squint I can half convince myself that the glow is from a roaring fire…

Another confession, I bought a halogen oven from Costco months ago, which I also haven’t used. Fear held me back in 2014, and when my creativity gets stifled, it literally feels like a well drying up

We use the halogen oven a lot as it's faster and more economical than the electric one, as is a slow cooker

My wee halogen oven has a pre-set sterilizing setting but approx 15mins in a low oven does the trick or run them through the dishwasher on hot if you're looking for a super easy way to sterlise.
