Summary: This is not a toaster oven. It is big and wonderful for pizzas, or cooking small casseroles, or of course, rotisserie. However, for 4 pieces of toast, it takes 15 minutes for it to warm up enough to toast them. And that is with convection. I may get a separate slice toaster to go with it.
and yes I gave it the recommended 10 minute warm up time

Summary: Bought this locally and at the moment I’m less than impressed. I read the instructions and followed them with the 10 minute burn in cycle to burn off any manufacturing oils and stuff. I sat the unit outside and ran it at 350F for 10 mins.
Summary: So thoroughly bummed about this toaster oven. I loved the capacity. It heated well and evenly. Toast came out great. I could bake things for an hour or more without heating up the whole kitchen, and the multiple racks allowed me to put several dishes in there.
Summary: I cook for 2 and I have had this unit for 7 years using it for all but my holiday cooking. It is a must have for me. I will say, I've never used it for toast. the chicken roasting feature is a gimmick I think. You have to use a really small chicken for it to work.
