Turbo Oven Review – Convection Oven Review

Secura Halogen Infrared Turbo Convection Countertop Oven, Deluxe Package W/extender Ring;tong;cook Racks 777MHEarlier this year I brought a turbo (convection) oven after one of the women at work told me how fantastic they are.

I have to agree with her and I was so impressed I brought all the kids one and they are all equally as impressed.

The oven sits on the bench top and I cook roasts and vegetables to perfection in it. There is also a wash cycle that makes the glass bowl and the stainless steel shelves easy to clean up in moments.

I have never liked my roasts cooked in the microwave, they just don’t seem to taste as they should, the meat looks pale and unappetising and pork crackling just doesn’t work in a microwave. Whereas the turbo oven cooks pork crackling just perfect and roast meat and veges to perfection.

I thoroughly recommend a turbo oven for convenience and great cooking results. I know I wouldn’t be without minet.

A turbo oven draws heat from the outside, heats it and swirls it around the food to cook it.

The oven is so easy to clean, simply add some water and detergent and turn the dial to clean and the timer 5 minutes. The turbo action swirls the water around and loosens all the grease, then when the oven cools to the stage where I can pick it up safely without burning myself, I pour out the water and simply rinse the bowl in fresh washing up water and wipe it over with a clean tea towel to dry.

I tend to leave the stainless steel racks in the oven when I am running it through the clean cycle as I find it makes them easy to clean as well.

I love mine so much that I brought one forĀ  my daughters and my daughter in law for christmas. They love their turbo ovens as much as I love mine. In fact my D-I-L brought a second one as she has a large family, and she uses one for the meat and one for the veges.

This is one purchase you will never regret.

  1. I am trying to find where to buy one of these turbo bench cookers, I live out of Dunedin,can anyone help me with name please.

  2. Well you can order one from the website below if you are prepared to wait for it to come through the mail. I couldn’t tell you where to get one in NZ. Just check around your electrical stores. Sorry I couldn’t be more helpful.

  3. Hi Heenan

    You should be able to find one on http://www.trademe.co.nz/
    I couldn’t find a department store that sells them in NZ but I brought mine from The Warehouse in Australia so you might also try them in NZ.

    I checked out the site and there were a few.
    Believe me they are well worth the money. I use mine all the time and it cooks perfectly

  4. Can you tell me where I might find some recieps for the oven? I just found mine in the back cupboard and cooked a whole chicken tonight, it was great! Could use some other ideas tho.

  5. We haven’t had much success ourselves in finding recipes online. I have posted in various forums but haven’t had much of a response.

  6. first off… what is the watts these use as electricity is not cheap also australian power points run 240 volts not 110 like america and adapters here for that cost hundreds of dollars.. so what voltage is in the ovens.. we need more info and up dates please.

    • You don’t need to buy a turbo oven overseas. We live in Australia and they sell them here. That is where Wanda bought hers. I have seen them at Myers so you don’t have to worry about adaptors and voltages.

  7. Hello , I have been given a (Ithink) turbo oven it is round and I think it was on tv a few years back. The name is HomeTrends , I have no idea how to drive thi thing any help out there??? thanks ryan

      Turbo ovens are such a quick and easy piece of kitchen equipment to use. A roast dinner takes around 40 minutes depending on the size of the roast.

  9. I havent had much luck with my turbo convection oven, as I cannot seem to get a recipe book for it.

  10. E. Clarke says:

    I just bought the Turbo oven. How can i pop popcorn kernels in it? Do I just put the kernels in the bowl with some oil. I need to know thanks.

    • Well this is something I haven’t tried. I guess the best way to find out is to experiment. Would love to know the results so please let us know how it works out.

    • Well I tried it, and it just does get the kernels hot enough, fast enough. It takes about 20 minutes for them to start popping and by then, most of the kernels are burnt.

    I am looking for recipes for my convection benchtop oven.

  12. I’ve invited the whole family to ours this xmas for a traditional dinner, so obviously the roast is pretty important! I found a ton of ideas at this roast recipe site, but cant seem to decide on one – there’s so many to choose from! It is fun planning such a big family meal though!
