    Turbo oven question.

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Im looking to buy a turbo oven to use as, well, a turbo oven.
    Our local Retravision store has the Easycook brand name, 11 litre just over $200 and 13 litre about $250.
    The question is, is the Easycook brand name any better than a Tiffany or similar for less than half the price? :-/

    Re: Turbo oven question.

    I have seen them and I personally think that they are no better or worse

    The price difference is probably because they are imported from the US and with currency conversion the price creeps up

    A kind CSer PMed me as a heads up
    Aldi have turbo ovens on sale from the 27th for $40

    Jon, my first was a Cooking Essentials solid element from Harris Scaffe [SA company I believe] #2 is the halogen element fom Homeart. I paid $79.00 for #1 and $69.00 for # 2 and #1 had no extension collar etc. Have had no issues/faults with either.
