There is a bake settings that you can use for regular food too, reheating a pork chop and it will sizzle on the hot rack in just minutes. No digital control, just a turn-dial for minutes and if you go over a minute you will burn your food. The overhead heat is nearly invisible so can not see if your food is close to done, so you will need to experiment to learn how many minutes work for you.
I received this unit as a reward and made already 2 pizzas and 1 quiche! I was amazed how easy it is to use and to cook - In 5 minutes, they all turned out to be absolutely perfect. No timer or temperature adjustments were needed as I was a little bite afraid of getting them burned at some parts. My boyfriend loved his pizzas completely burned and of course, sauce and toppings splashed all over the oven but I had no trouble whatsoever to clean it with hot soapy water and paper towels. The inside of the unit was like brand new again - Next time I am making a pizza or quiche (I am a quiche lover), I will post a video or photos. Anyway, this little thing loaded with superpower is a gem in a kitchen and I highly recommend it. It doesn't worth any single penny. Flo de B.
This Black and Decker - 5 Minute Pizza Oven & Snack Maker is fantastic!! In a house with 3 children, one of them being an ever hungry 12 year old son with hollow legs, this 5 Minute Pizza Oven has come in handy daily. It cooks pizzas perfectly, the crust brown and the top golden brown.... in ONLY 5 MINUTES!! A whole pizza! You really cannot ask for more!
So far, besides pizza we have also used it to make perfect french fries, onion rings, mozz sticks and even a small pan of lasagna.. which all turned out deliciously perfect.
The oven is also very easy to set up (It took me all of 3 minutes to have it up and going!), and comes with everything you might need to use it, including the pan and a handle that hooks to it.. No burns!! YAY! My favorite thing about it is how easy it is to clean. Just spray and wipe, and it's glistening like new once again!
I recommend this Black and Decker - 5 Minute Pizza Oven & Snack Maker to absolutely anyone who loves delicious food in 5 minutes!
I've had this oven for a couple of months and for the first month I only cooked small snacks. It took a little bit getting used to for the different temperatures of the different snacks but worked perfectly. The next month I had a pizza party with pre-made crusts and the fixings on an assembly line. Within the time I prepared the next pizza the previous one was ready. I had pizzas coming out every 5 minutes and cooked perfectly. It was so much fun. I have Kitchen Aid double wall convection ovens which are wonderful but this has become my number one tool for pizzas and small items. Love, love, love this oven.
Fast snacks for grandkids. Doesn't heat the whole house up. My daughter can't eat Nachos any other way. Looks great in my newly built home!
You really need to keep your eye on what's in the oven. And you need to rotate any pizza or it burns in the back and not all the way done in the front. Tricky to get the hang of the different settings...pretty vague.
