Is one that looks like a UFO. Anybody has one? Is it good for daily cooking? It seems to work like airfryer. What are the dishes you cook with using turbo broiler? TIA for your sharing.

We used to have that for many years. It is really useful for cooking meats like chicken and pork. Easy to clean too. Now that my family has gotten a lot bigger we use the oven instead. :smile:

Uncle Lim, thanks for your sharing. Have you tried fried stuffs using that? Seems like it works very much like a air-fryer.

I am not sure how an air-fryer works although I saw the advertisement on tv. But I understand the turbo broiler to be just like a fan-assisted convention oven ? I still oven-fry food in my oven now by coating them in oil, and then putting them in, so I feel convince myself it is not so unhealthy!! :wink:

Need help badly. I am trying not to fry Ngo Hiang for CNY, can I use the Turbo Broiler instead? I intend to coat the Ngo Hiang with oil on the skin first. Can it be done? Many thanks.

Should be do-able. Either use a brush and coat lightly or spray a mist of oil over your whole plate. This is our family's alternative cooking method for fried stuff. :smile:
