Halogen Oven - FlavorWave Platinum or Secura

I am looking to get a Halogen Oven. In looking online I am trying to decide between the Flavorwave Platinum: http://www.amazon.com/Flavorwave-Turbo-Platinum-Professional-Package/dp/B005EM9TMO/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1325191385&sr=8-3 and the Secura 798DH: http://www.amazon.com/Secura-Infrared-Convection-Countertop-798DH/dp/B002NXVZVA/ref=sr_1_1?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1325191419&sr=1-1 Both look the same to me, almost too identical. Anyone have any experience with these? Other halogen ovens?

  • Just an update, I found a brand new Secura 798DH on Craigslist. Only paid $80. I haven't cooked with it yet, but I will cook with it soon and give an update on my thoughts.

  • Just made some Grassfed NY Strips and Burgers for dinner in this thing. I am sure I will get used to it over time. because I overcooked the meat a little. The steaks were completely frozen and cooked them for 16 minutes and they were Medium to Medium Well. But even then they were still really juicy and not dried out. The other con is that the wire racks aren't easy to clean, nothing particular to this, but same issues as cleaning any wire rack. The glass bowl is easy to clean. In time I will get used to the timing of cooking things.

    I'm just now looking at the same two options. Any further update? I'll probably buy the Secura.
