    The Halogen ovens have been getting very popular both un the US and Europe, but are relatively new entrants to the Indian market.

    Halogen ovens use infrared technology to cook food up to 60 per cent faster than conventional ovens. As well as being energy efficient, they don’t give the hot and cold spots you get with microwaves. They also create food that tastes as though it’s been cooked, but in an oven, and with a microwave’s speed.

    Usha recently launched the Usha 3212 Halogen Oven, a pretty nifty oven priced at appox Rs 7,000 MRP.

    Here's Usha's Demo video of the product:



    Looking at buying this, so was wondering whether anyone here had used this.

    I think USHA is gearing up to give Braun a run for their money.

    Never seen such good quality of plastic, rubber, fit and finish from an Indian Manufacturer.

    He recommends it, At par with imported ones. There's going to be a presentation tomorrow afternoon in Gurgaon, very close to my place. If you want, you can come check it out in action.

    Just got it :)
    Great quality.. Works fantastic.. Just one gripe..
    Does Anyone over at Usha speak any English?
    Top end product and the manual reads like a Chinese-English manual, full of language errors and very confusing and inadequate..
    And the product video Is In Hindi!!! My wife has No Clue as to what they're saying :(
