Since toaster ovens first appeared, I've probably owned and used over a dozen -- this one is the best one yet, and I'm really pleased with the purchase. It was reasonably priced, it's a nice practical size, has all the control settings needed, and is easier to clean than most. One of the most irritating problems with many such ovens is that they won't accomodate average baking dishes; this one not only comes with its own pan and rack, most ordinary baking dishes will also fit. In fact, I've actually baked entire meals (for one person) at one time, which pleases my frugal nature. There is a pull-out crumb/drip tray which is easily scoured at the sink or even slipped into the dishwasher. I've had this oven for about a year, used it at least once every day, and hope it lasts for many more years; when it's outlived its natural life I will definitely shop Hamilton Beach for another just like it. You notice no negative comments in this write-up, because I can't think of any!
Wonderful item. True to temp, lots of space to cook in, looks good. I definitely do recommend.
It is simple and easy to use. I cooked chicken using the Rotisserie and it was excellent. Cooked a roast using the Convection setting and it was SOOOOOO tender and juicy. I love it and so I bought one for my daughter. She says "It is AMAZING".
This is a large unit. It will roast a 5# bird or roast. It does get hot on the outside, I rotisseried a 4.11 pork roast in about 2.5 hrs. It was great. My only issue is with the timer...I have had this about a week. I have used the convection setting 3 times and the rotisserie once. Twice the timer would not work. The unit came on, the timer did not work. It just sat there. We checked the directions & turned it past 40 min & then back to the desired time. Nope, nothing. It was if we had set it on the "Stay On" setting. I have sent an email to the company about this. (last night) I can't call because I get home too late in the day. Other than the timer, It works well. And it does what it is supposed to.
