        Yeah, I saw that too and was wondering about the power rating. They dont give any details on either their printed literature or the website.
        Anyone got any ideas? I was thinking of grabbing one if they are 1200 watts or more.
        Cheers,

            Thanks damian1, I have just read the other thread and I saw what happened to your Aldi TO and also noted the temp problems with it. I think Ill give it a miss and opt for a Tiffany which is what both you and KK are using without any problems it seems.
            Thanks for the heads up.

            Cheers,
            Alan

              yeah I havent had any problems with mine. But I think for all turbo ovens, dont expect the thermostat to be accurate at all. if the oven cycles on and off, the temp will vary a fair bit (ie around 20 degrees from memory). But I think a good way to get around this is to vary the amount of ventilation and keep the oven element on for the whole roast. Good luck!

                Checked out the Aldi one today... Maybe ok for cooking - FOOD :-)

                It has a traditional heating element.. As to if and how quickly it can get to 200 plus ????


                The Cookwell has more of a Helogion type element... I would assume the Tiffany is the same..

                Also the Cookwell and Tiffany are rated to 1400W - I searched but could find NOTHING on the Aldi unit..


                So after walking back and fro - I went and paid for One Turbo Oven and a 24cm Paster set..

                A new roaster is not far away :

                  So what brand TO did you buy
                  Aldi, Cookwell or Tiffany
                  My Tiffany has a normal heating 1400 W element with fan above

                      That would be good to see ;D beans will be flying around like lotto balls!

                      My thought for the blade is to use those cheap tongs you get (2 for $2?) as they would be easy to mould into shape... maybe can even make a propeller out of them

                        I read somewhere that the Aldis dont pack a lot of grunt, however the concept looks good. The obvious agitator is from above - simply put a stirrer on the fan blade. As this seems too obvious and nobody seems to do it, does this mean the fan motor is just not strong enough ?

                          It wont work
                          1) The fan motor is not a torque or geared motor
                          2) If it was the speed is approx 2000rpm when you require 42 to 55 rpm
                          3) The fan itself is needed to force and circulate the heat
                          It cant do 2 things at the same time
                          It will burn out
