I bought this item for my Mother. Currently she has no stove to cook with. I got this because she can now cook cookies, cakes, and any meal she can dream up in this new Hamilton Beach countertop oven.

I'm in love with my new best friend. We have used it for pork roasts.. Absolutely tasty. And my husband uses it every day for his frozen pizzas.. Excited to make prime rib and rotisserie chicken.

PROS: I really love the convection oven feature and the removable double racks are great. It is super for pizza, roasting meat, fish & veggies and it toasts my bagels and garlic bread perfectly. Its super easy to clean if you cover the bottom tray with foil. The racks are also great because you can move them to whatever location you need for the item you are cooking. CONS: I have tried the rotisserie feature twice but I am not impressed. It is extremely time consuming, annoying and wastes too much electricity for the sub-par results. The rotisserie rod is not made to hold a standard size roaster chicken without spending a lot of time trussing the chicken to the rod, so that, it can cook properly. This oven is also rather large and does take up a lot of counter space. Its control knobs are all in black and can be hard to see in low or dim light. So, if you are looking for a great Convection Oven I would highly recommend this oven. But, if you are looking to use the Rotisserie feature often I would recommend that you look in another direction.

My Apartment Oven is terrible. This lets me bake and cook things I could not cook before like at 400 degrees or higher. I plan to use this on a regular basis. Waiting to use the rotisserie haven't cooked a Chicken on one since I moved into a smaller Apt. and gave him my really great B-B-Q Grill about 3 years ago.
It is an oven where you can fit two large pizzas. Also you can roaste a chicken or a turkey. In this oven I can make a homemade bread. My wife loves to make lasagna and all kind of italian pastas in it.
I've had mine for a bit over a week, and use it every day! Use the convection setting to 'pre-heat' and it's really fast. Although it might hold 2 pizza's, if you want the top to brown, it has to be on the highest rack slot. Did a whole chicken on the spit last weekend, and it was crisp on the outside and cooked to the bone on the inside, yet very moist. Use the included large 'cake pan' or a cheap disposable aluminum pan to catch drippings. I used the cake pan and then de-glazed it and made gravy with the drippings. The interior is wide enough to hold a 12x14" pan easily. If shopping for pans to use with this, keep the size in mind... I have a bread maker, but don't like how the loaves come out. I use the bread maker to mix dough, then transfer the dough to a bread pan, let it rise one more time, and then bake it in this oven! Perfect 1-1/2# loaf of bread. Oh, bake on the 2nd lowest rack position. I bought this oven because the oven thermostat on my old electric range went out. I like this oven better! And yes, I'm a guy who can easily repair the old thermostat, but it costs 50% more than this oven cost me! Just a warning: The broiler elements on top are on any time it is heating, so you can NOT heat foods in plastic trays, even if you follow the 'cookie sheet' directions on the frozen food... You can, however, dump the frozen food into a metal or oven-safe glass pan and then follow the heating directions.

My oven died . . . again . . . and while I contemplate what to replace it with I bought this to get me through for the next few months. But I'm never giving it up. It is brilliant. Yes, it takes up a fair amount of space on the counter, but it is worth it. The rotisserie feature is brilliant., you can barely hear it going, likewise with the convection feature Made my first Rotisserie chicken with it and it is to die for! Could not be happier.
I got mine years ago and it still gets used at least once a week. My teens love it for warming up their snacks as they get nice and crispy. I do keep mine in the garage as it does warm up the house a bit in the summer time and because well the boys aren't the best at cleaning up after themselves. I would recommend that you do put foil in the pull out tray because it gets Nasty with grease and junk for ease of cleaning. I am thinking of buying another in case mine breaks cause it is an essential part of the kitchen. G

After weeks of sifting through the reviews on line I decided for my budget this was the best bet. Found this great rotisserie oven on line at K-mart for $38 less than they were selling them at **********, and $28 cheaper than *******. Delivery was amazing - just 2 days! Tonight I tried the rotisserie for the first time with a small chicken. A little seasoning, some Youtube tutorials, and I was ready to give it a crack. Putting the bird on the skewer was easy and if you line your drip pan with foil, there's minimal clean-up. Best of all, we had the most moist and tasty chicken we've ever eaten. My wife said, "better than the restaurant". I can't wait to try it again. A lot of oven for the money. We paid $62, and the box had a price tag on it of $99. Can't beat that.
This over without a doubt is the greatest value you could purchase for the buck.It's easy to use,a generous size cavity and is fast.Nothing about it looks cheap.We use it everyday,so much better than a regular oven,and saves electricity. Would make a great gift also..

Have only used twice so far but works great. Bigger than I thought it would be but fits perfect on my kitchen counter. Bought at half price using my rewards points so am very happy with the price. It truely will fit 2 regular size frozen pizza's you get from the grocery store in it. Much easier to use than my regular stove with less electricity. Love it. Actually came with a baking pan also. I have not used the rotisserie yet.

Initially I was a little skeptical that this oven would be able to properly bake as compared to a regular oven. But much to my surprise, it has exceeded my expectations. Since it is smaller there is less volume which helps to reduce the amount of time necessary for preheating. One of the major draws for me was the convection feature. When in this mode, the baking times have been consistent with normal baking times. Also this oven is not overly noisy when the fan is pushing the air for the convection baking. So far I have baked frozen pizzas using a pizza stone and some batches of cookies. I would highly recommend this oven to someone who likes baking but does not need a large oven. Also another benefit is that this won't significantly increase the temperature in your kitchen.
I like this newer model. I had an older model for more than 6 years; and needed upgrade. I got this one because I am very familiar with how it works. It is bigger than the previous one, hope it last more than the older one. Also, I did not received any benefit or discount for writing this review as posted in below in this website.
