Rated 3 out of 5 by Barbara Knobs need to be re-designed
I purchased this online and have used it a couple of times. I do like it, the convection oven, and the size as it fits nicely where I wanted it to be placed in my kitchen. What I dislike extremely is the printing on the dials. I simply cannot read them. I think they need to be replaced with some dials that can be read easily - perhaps a black band with white lettering. I have marked the different settings with nail polish but still need to use a flashlight whenever I use the oven. If in the future you change the knobs to something more easily read, if they fit, I would like to order some. If it weren't for the knobs, I would rate the oven 5 star. I really considered sending it back because of this problem. Perhaps KitchenAid could be magnanimous and replace the knobs without cost to those of us who have already purchased the product. In other reviews on the website where I purchased the product, a number of other customers complained about the same thing. It's not my age and I'm not blind!

Rated 5 out of 5 by The appliance nut What a great appliance for summer and all year round!
First, I must admit to being an "Appliance Junky"! I love them but never have I made such a wise purchase! For hot summer months, it is wonderful to still enjoy our favorite foods and yet not heat up the house. I cannot believe the ease in which to clean the unit. Equally important is the "Kitchen Aid" manufacturer. The trust I have for the brand is so important. Lastly, I am proud to display my counter top unit. The stainless steel design is perfect for us. My only recommendation would be to develop an outside casing that would protect users from the heat of the unit. It can and does burn you if you are not paying attention not unlike using a conventional office. For us, this unit is the best!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by skysgaga Love it!
Living in the Southwest gets pretty hot in the summer, I love to bake but it heats my house up to much. Now that I have my Convection Bake Countertop Oven I can bake year round. The oven doesn't put off much heat, it doesn't take up much room and it is pretty. I would recommend this oven to everyone in the Southwest!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LizB Best Product Ever
My son who does a lot of the cooking around here, did his research and we landed on this product. The best ever, does everything and makes life a joy to go from toast, to broil and small baking projects. It stays super clean and all the racks allows for a lot of options!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Beautiful Spiney Life A love/hate relationship With this
I was in need of a new toaster oven & after a great deal of shopping, decided to spend a bit more on this model because of the convection feature. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to cook any faster than a normal oven ~ maybe there is a trick to turning it on, and I just haven't figured it out? (the manual wasn't helpful) Also, I didn't receive the two bake racks shown on the box and mentioned in description (also standard in every TO I looked at & owned in the past), instead there was only one included with my purchase. I should have returned/exchanged it, but I've had multiple spinal fusion surgeries, so the thought of lugging that big box back to the store simply fills me with dread, and aside from the aforementioned issues, it performs well, so I will keep this & hope my next toaster oven lives up to its marketing! *I would recommend with the caveat to check your box in store for all pieces, and the understanding that "convection" may not actually BE convection!

Use this to avoid turning on the oven and heating up the house in the summer. Fits a frozen pizza! Love it.
