I seriously doubt it, unless you have an amazing ventilation system.

Naah...one of those ventless jobs. I'll wait 'till tomorrow and put them on the grill.

You'd be fine roasting the anaheims. Not sure about habeneros.

Yes, am a chile head in training. Will put hot sauce on almost everything, including salad. Actually, as an aside, a bit of chile stuff goes well with most salads.

We bought this house with a Viking stove and a very strong vent fan (I hate it but that is another story) and would only consider roasting habaneros if the fan was on full blast and the windows were open. And would make sure there were no kids about.

As QSis said the Anaheims, which are fairly mild, will be fine. But the habaneros are a different story.

Habaneros have a lovely flavor and the heat is tamed somewhat by roasting. But be very careful when doing so.

And always wear gloves when dealing with any truly hot pepper. Call Auntdot a wimp if you must but I have seen some very, in retrospect, uproariously funny incidents resulting from the cutting very hot peppers without the gloves.

you can do it in an oven at high temps (425-500) if you dont want to do so on a gas range or BBQ. Its sealed and the high temp should gurantee a quick char of the thin skin for peeling later. it takes longer for peppers in the oven than directly on flames, but still has the same outcome without the fumes.

I would not recommend that Yonsen. Ovens are not sealed. They vent into the room. Not only that, but as soon as you open the oven door all the fumes will pour into the kitchen.

no trouble so far, but by all means discard the option if it feels questionable.

(edit, condensing space)

In response to the next post down, i forgot some key detail.

Partial thanks to the cool-down fan the oven automatically activates once power to the heating elements has been cut (aka. , the "off" button"). Harmlessly jettisons whatever said irritant matter outside. Sorry birds

I have not tried doing it with habs in my oven, so if you have done it with success Yonsen then I bow to your experience.
