For an affordable price, the OIF22300X is a spacious oven with a few handy features. With 65 litres of space it’s slightly larger than an average model, so it’ll easily cook 4 baking trays full of food at once. There are 5 separate shelf positions too, so if you’re cooking something larger like a leg of lamb, moving the shelves around to give you more space is easy.
You’ll find you won’t need to swap your trays of food about to ensure they cook evenly as this is a fan oven. Each shelf gets the same level of heat, so all of your food cooks at the same rate. It’s much quicker too, as the even heat cooks your food through from all sides.
You’re also getting a very handy Defrost feature, which means you can thaw out frozen food three times quicker than leaving it on the side – it’s much more hygienic too. By circulating room temperature air around your food, you’ll get your food thoroughly defrosted, without the half-cooked finish you’d get using the microwave.
The variable grill gives you much more control over the grill’s temperature, rather than just high and low heat. It’ll be great for grilling fish and meat. You can even combine the grill and the fan together – it’s excellent for chicken breasts, as you get a brilliant roast finish, a perfectly cooked middle and it’ll take around 10 minutes less that cooking it normally.
