Excerpt: Worst on-line shipping experience I have ever had. NET NET is that I tried to purchase on-line, have it shipped to a NYC store for my pickup there, and their system wouldn't allow me to ship there; had to come to my billing address in CA. Had to accept in CA and return this heavy, large item to local store.<br /><br />Certainly won't be purchasing again for NYC use; will go elsewhere.
Summary: We are very pleased with this oven. We have a galley kitchen and space is at a premium. We really wanted an oven that could do it all, i.e., microwave, bake, and particularly toast. It has two grill settings that allow you to toast both sides or just the top. We put the bread directly on the turntable and it is not necessary to flip during the cycle. It takes a bit longer to toast than a toaster oven, but it's well worth it.
Summary: I've only used the microwave feature so far but that works well. The only oddity I've found is while using the microwave on the counter top, I can't read the LED display unless I take a couple steps back or move my face right in front of the display. It's kind of annoying especially for a microwave that was made/designed for a counter top.
Summary: This oven will do the job and has a relatively small footprint. The fact that it combines all the features of a high end standard oven with a microwave while still easily fitting on a counter top makes it an outstanding buy when space is a premium. The convection cooking does not appear to be a fast a advertised nor is the microwave as quick as I expected but they both do the job.
Summary: As luck would have it, my convection/microwave died two weeks after it's extended warranty expired. I bought this at Best Buy on sale. It was the only convection microwave in stock at the store so this was not exactly an informed decision on my part. I have a very nice convection gas range with a lot of whistles and bells, but I never use it. I usually just dust it once a week. I was panicked at the the very thought of being without my c/m.
Summary: I love this oven! I grilled steaks and they came out great. Good for heating up things too. My only complaint is that it doesn't seem to microwave popcorn very well. I have to do 5 minutes and it still isn't right. Anyone else have this problem? Otherwise, great oven.
