Summary: After 2 failures of a bigger sized, [supposedly] better quality toaster ovens, we went back to a lesser priced counter-top oven. We bought a mini toaster oven about 7 years ago and it served us well. When it gave up, we decided to upgrade to a larger oven, one that would accomodate a pizza, and other large items. We bought a KitchenAid for $99. It failed within 3 months [the function selector **** stopped]. We replaced it under warranty with the same item.
Summary: I'm a bachelor who hates to fire up my gas oven for one meal and have used toaster ovens for cooking most of my food since I can remember. -- That being said, I've been though many, many toaster ovens. I bought this one appx. 3 years ago and it finally died on me after 3 years plus of cooking my meals 24/7/365 day a year!! That is saying a lot for this moderately priced gem that can fit a large sized pizza.
Summary: The instructions are vague and the website has the wrong measurements and no wattage however I found both before I bought it. This little oven is powerful. Still trying to figure out how to get the perfect light toast and how much time things take to cook but love not using my big oven.
Summary: Convection oven cooking is a great way to cook. The meat cooks faster than a regular kitchen oven. The meat is also very jucy. It browns the meat well also. When reheating pizza the crust got a little hard but otherwise it was better than a microwave. I also tried baking a cake, it was evenly browned and a good height. The cake also baked a lot faster than in a conventional oven.
Absolutely no disappointments with this appliance; it delivers.

Summary: I purchased the above after first buying a low-end toaster oven that must have been made for Third World countries, i.e., one heat element so it only toasted on one side! As a Christian, I am conscious of how I spent my limited income and often find unexplainable bargains. Such was the case the day I returned the cheaper toaster oven.
Summary: This convection oven is the perfect piece of equipment needed in any kitchen! We just moved into a new house and the regular oven did not broil or bake properly, thank goodness my friend lent me her Oster Convection Countertop Oven, had it not been for her I would not own one now, this oven is the perfect accessory to any kitchen whether you have a working oven or not...Thanks Oster for the next best thing to utopia!
Summary: We got this toaster oven to cut down on using our full-size oven all the time. It cooks faster than a regular oven so be sure to cut back some of the cooking time. The handle on the door is nice because the whole unit gets really hot.
