I used the pizza stone with homemade pizzas and they came out great! brown on top and crispy on bottom. I actually struggled with the settings at first because I thought there must be more steps that I would have to go through. There weren't, this oven is just very easy to use.
Two of these have malfunctioned in 8 months with the first one turning on by itself and the latest one starting to lose letters on the digital display. Getting a warranty replacement has been an exercise in futility. I regret my purchase.
I owned a toaster oven I never liked and finally bought this one. Very happy with my decision. This has been a great buy!
It has a 5 year workmanship/defect warranty. I can't get help. I get told by Kenmore to contact Sears and visa versa. I even brought the oven with receipt to the Sears I bought it from. That was a joke.
