For a toaster oven, this thing is huge! It’s part of the reason why we bought this oven. It will comfortably accommodate my 9×13 Pyrex dishes and cookie sheets. I have had the oven for about 3 weeks and have toasted bread, baked bread pudding, lemon bars, salmon fillets, cooked mac and cheese, eggplant parm, lasagna, and everything came out pretty good. I did have to adjust the cooking times a little bit, because the oven does cook most things faster than my kitchen oven, most likely because of its smaller capacity and there’s less space to heat up (and that’s with the conventional bake function; I have yet to try the convection feature).
The exterior of the oven does get a little hot when in use, but not excessively so. I’ve accidentally brushed against the side during cooking, and I was okay. If anything the top of the oven and door gets very hot. If you exercise caution when in use (as you would with a regular oven), you won’t get burned. The oven does cool down very quickly when done cooking.
My only complaints are about the door, the power cord, and interior light (or lack thereof):
* You have to be careful when opening the door. You have to guide it gently down to the counter surface, otherwise it just slams down on it. Do that one too many times, and eventually it will shatter. The door opens pass the edge of our counter, and the glass part of the door rests on the counter edge when opened all the way. It would have been nice if there were a stop, or a spring-type function that prevents it from just dropping down. My husband has made a makeshift padding with bubble wrap and a towel on the edge of our counter to cushion the door.
* The power cord is very short; it measures about 18.” I had to make sure to put the oven near an outlet.
* There’s no interior light. To see how my meal is coming along, I have to use my little key chain flash light to see inside.
Overall, I love my little-big oven.
The initial impediments were frustrating. Right out of the box, you need to check the unit carefully â there was a strip of packing tape on the underside of the oven, for no apparent reason. You also need to wash the two racks and the tray. And it is BIG. (Did I mention that itâs big? From the description, I thought I would be getting a toaster oven, but this unit is bigger than my microwave.)
And then, the cord! Sheesh, the cord! If you have the outlet on the right-hand side of the unit, youâll be OK, but if your outlet has the misfortune of being on the left side of the unit, the cord will extend only a couple of inches past the unit itself. The manual says the short cord is on purpose â âa short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risk resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cordâ â guys, the unit is 21â wide, and the cord is only 26â long. Unless you have it on the counter but are plugging it in at the FLOOR, you are NOT going to trip over this ridiculously short cord. So, while most of us will need an extension cord, the manual gives only generic instructions about using âproperly ratedâ extension cords. After irritated inquiries and digging around, I was able to determine that one needs an extension cord that can handle 1500 watts. (Now you know everything electrical that I know.) We ended up using a power strip that my husband had lying around.
Finally, after washing everything, removing the cardboard inserts and random tape, and finding a proper extension cord, the next night I was finally ready to cook something.
I used the âconvectionâ setting to cook a pork roast and red potatoes in a âVâ rack over the tray. I rubbed the roast with a spice mix, baked it, then drizzled with a sweet sauce for the finish. Payoff! I hadnât browned the pork roast, but it came out like a pre-seasoned ham (as I said, Iâm no great cook). The next night, I used the tray to bake breaded fish. Suddenly, I see what my niece meant. Why heat up the whole kitchen with gas heat, when this efficient unit can bake and broil through the miracle of electricity?
Thereâs no number keypad, so the âbakeâ and âtimerâ functions start with presets (350Âº and 30 minutes, respectively), and you use an arrow key to increase or reduce the temperature and time. In fact, to âpreheat,â you just heat the unit for 7 minutes; however, this is not a huge annoyance for an affordable unit such as this. Thereâs no inside light, but on the countertop, it wasn’t difficult to check the progress of the meal.
So, all that griping aside, Iâm happy with my first foray into convection-oven cooking.
