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!

First saw the product at my daughter's...liked it so I bought one for myself. It is very convenient to use for my small baking/grilling/toasting needs.

I might or might not recommend this to a friend....There are a couple of things about it I would like to see improved upon. All the dials are etched with what their purpose is 'bake', 'toast' etc. Nothing says microwave The knobs are chrome and so is the printing on them. Very, very difficult to see and I have good eyesight. It is my understanding this Countertop Oven bakes and convection bakes?! Can't really tell by the information in the pamphlet received with it. Does it or doesn't it? There is only 1 light to show it's operating. It get extremely hot on the top when operating it. The pamphlet could provide a bit more information and clarification.

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 Ethel, the elder I love it! It is so easy to use.
I now have more room on my counter. The Kitchen Aid oven takes the place of multiple appliances and is my daily friend. I keep finding less reasons to use even my microwave. The Kitchen Aid toaster oven does it all. And it keeps the food warm until ready for use. E

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!
