The DeLonghi EO1200W mini oven is installed in our holiday home, we bought this model to replace our older mini oven that had been damaged during flooding. The current price is £119 but we paid £130 after using a company chosen by our insurance payment team.
I like to cook and continue my passion for cookery while we are using our holiday home but we do not have the space for anything bigger, when we are on the coast there is an abundance of seafood and fresh fish so I would still rather eat home cooked food than takeaways or eating out.
The selling point for this mini oven was the pizza bulge, homemade seafood pizza in the sea air is something everyone should try and when I saw this feature I knew I had to have this oven. Most mini ovens do not have the capacity for a family size pizza but this one does because of an elongated panel at the back of the oven giving additional space for your pizza to slot in without having to be manipulated to fit.
The oven cooks using electricity and has a grill and cook function, I use both but cook more often than I grill and have been happy with both functions. I have purchased smaller cookware to utilise all functions and have cooked most items I usually cook at home in my full size oven including stews, cupcakes, small joints of meat for a roast dinner and oven bake paella.
The main alteration I have needed to make to my cooking is to take into account the small size of the oven and adjust my quantities to suit that.
The timer is adequate but not a hundred per cent accurate, the timer bell is very hollow too so cannot be heard at some points in our holiday home. The cooker switches off when the timer goes off so usually this does not cause a safety concern but if I have cooked something that needs to be removed from the oven at the end of the cooking time like pizza it can make the quality of the food deteriorate as the meal sits in a cooling but still hot oven.
The mini oven has a removeable crumb tray and that fits like a glove so no crumbs or food splashes can fall down the back or sides, it slides out to be emptied and washed then slides back in again. The back pizza bulge panel gets greasy at times but I wipe it with an antibacterial wipe and that is sufficient, the same goes for the glass door but that requires extra cleaning because it smears badly when the oven is in regular use.
