A new spin on cooking

The simple addition of a turntable makes this innovative design the logical next step in oven technology.

When I pop a plate of food into the microwave, the turntable rotates so that the food cooks evenly. But, when I slide a roast into the oven, it just sits there, which is fine for some foods that can handle having crispier bits, but can present quite a challenge for other. Many ovens have hot spots, so even after careful basting you wind up with a chicken with over-roasted thighs, for example, but no crispy skin on the breast.

The dual-level rotating plate is a small change that makes a big difference in cooking. Baumatic

Convection cooking solves this problem--sort of. The circular element at the rear of the oven distributes the heat more evenly throughout the oven, which generally speeds up cooking times and gives you a more evenly cooked bird. But now Baumatic has taken things one step further.

The UK company's B240SS-A single wall oven uses a two-level rotating plate in the oven that turns throughout the cooking process to give you even faster cooking speeds and more uniform results than an ordinary convection oven.

The two levels allow you to rotate two separate dishes simultaneously, so that your entire dinner comes out perfectly cooked all at once.

Additional oven features include removable side racks and a removable roof liner for easy clean up. Add an optional pizza stone to enjoy a perfect crust every time.

The oven's functional interior design is easy on the eyes, and the sleek exterior stainless steel finish fits in beautifully in any kitchen.

Unfortunately, it looks like Baumatic's offerings are only readily available in Europe, so you may have to resign yourself to installing this oven in your vacation villa.

For basic lighting needs, this bulb looks like a solid pick, but its dimming performance leaves a lot to be desired.
