So I have been without an oven for well over 2 yrs now! My stove top works but the oven started building up gas and exploding out so anyways....since I haven't worked in well...2 yrs I couldn't afford a new stove. Even used out here people want $200 or more...well for Xmas my Dh bought me a Countertop Convection oven!! I felt it was a bit too much money since money is soooo tight for us right now but he felt it was a needed "extravegance" for me. I LOVE it...I can cook up to a 16 in. pizza in it. It holds up to a 9x11 pan...no more casseroles and enchiladas in the microwave :)
This is it:

Thanks all for the kind words :)
Well I have made pizzas just those cheap 16 in Red Barrons ya know...18 mins they are perfect and so yummy!
I made corn dogs and fries....I think though...even though it has 2 shelves only 1 big thing can be cooked at a time...2 pizzas ok...2 pans~1 corn dogs 1 fries or 2 fries...no good
I made a tv dinner type chicken parm...maybe because its covection....the plastic container melted...said to cook in oven

Trial and error I guess :)

We have an Oster convection toaster oven, too and I LOVE IT. I cook everything I can in it so as not to heat up the house (FL and all...)

Yep, you have to think of it as a regular oven, because it is...just smaller. Anything you can't put into a regular oven can't go into your Oster either. Most round casserole dishes fit into mine, and if you can find the smaller muffin tins, you can even make those in there. Broiled/baked fish turns out great, too.
