Solid built over-the -counter oven, works as described. This convection oven preheats quickly. It bakes faster and it holds at high temperatures.. This is one of the better convection ovens I bought , I've only had the oven for a few months, so it's too early to comment on the durability but so far it does the job in my small cafe

This countertop model has been excellent for our needs. Heats very quickly and holds a consistent temp. Perfect size for remaining out on a countertop without being obtrusive

As soon as I got the oven I tried it and it works very well, I recommend turning the product in the middle of the cooking time as it burns on one side more than the other. I would have given 5 stars if the fan was a little faster.

Posted on 9/15/2017 12:00:00 AM

Very nice product. i recommend it. It handles well heavy duty tasks, keeps the temperature and the size is good for the place I have (40 seats). Easy to clean as well

Not bad considering the price, although its ready to be replaced after 13 months and I wont be getting another one. To be fair, it is used for toasting sandwiches all day in a busy deli. The fan is far slower than I was expecting and the door seal hasn't stayed in place since it arrived. While it is still working, the door springs are worn out and wont keep the door closed. For home use you should be happy but anything involving commercial food service, keep looking.

I searched for months to find an affordable but heavy duty half-size convection oven. The home models were too flimsy or small, and most commercial models were way out of my price range. The Advantco was exactly what I was looking for. It runs on normal household current, but is still plenty powerful. It is all stainless construction and comes with four baking racks. The oven fan is quite powerful. You really need to be careful about opening it while it’s running, because you will be blasted with hot air. I did notice, as other reviewers have commented, that it has a hot spot, and you really should rotate the food half way through the cooking process. One unusual design is where the heating element is located. I would have expected the element to be at the top and/or bottom of the oven, but it coils around the convection fan in the rear. My single biggest complaint is that it has no oven light. I have to keep a portable clip on light handy to hook onto the oven handle in order to clearly see inside while the food is cooking. I sure wish Advantco would consider putting in an oven light – it would make this countertop convection oven near-perfect. Cleaning involves taking off the for screws that old the housing around the fan and two screws on the sides that old the chrome rails that the baking racks fit into. Then you have complete access to the interior. I’ve done one thorough cleaning since I owned it, and it came out looking like it was brand new.

As far as the functionality of the oven, it does everything it should and does it pretty well. It's slightly uneven and has some "hot spots" but for an affordable oven, I think you have to expect this. I am overall really happy with the oven. Works great for warming up our pastries and baking cookies. The one thing is it did just stop working completely one day. I contacted Webstaurant directly, with in just a few short minutes, I got a response back from Webstaurant saying they had heard back from the manufacture and are either sending me a brand new one or giving me credit to purchase a different product. I have to say, I was going to give this unit a much lower rating but because of the incredible customer service, I am giving it a 4 star rating. Hope this review helps!

I haven't used this oven enough to have mastered the art of convection yet, but I am definitely liking it! Seems that there is a sweet spot to find in just how much to lower the temperature and/or adjust the baking time. But it's certainly not rocket science, and practice makes perfect. Great little oven!

Posted on 6/25/2017 12:00:00 AM

This is a great priced product. Heats up quickly and cooks quicker than a standard residential oven. I can fit more product in at one time. I had noticed that the seal that suppose to press on the glass wasn't making contact in some spots, so some heat loss is happening and hard to tell if it is holding temperature. Maybe the seal will seal itself after I use the product a while.

Paul Fera from
Posted on 6/25/2016 12:00:00 AM

We bought this oven for our small batch bakery. It is the perfect size for counter top use. Our only complaint is there seems to be a hot spot, but that is easily remedied by turning and rotating product half way thru baking times. It isn't super loud and doesn't put off nearly as much heat as we expected.

Alanna Dennis from Alanna's Gourmet Treats
Posted on 6/23/2018 12:00:00 AM

This oven is great. We bake all of our pastries at our coffee shop: scones, loaves, muffins, cookies, brownies, all kinds of baked goods. We also use it to cook off chicken and bacon for our salads. The items are best rotated, like most convection ovens, to prevent browner spots or lopsided muffins from the fan blowing, but with a turn or two mid bake the items come out lovely! I don’t always use a timer, but with the recipes I’ve used with times on them it is fairly accurate for completion on a cook/bake.

Purchased this oven for our mold manufacturing company and it works great. Tons of room inside the oven for running prototypes. Heat is pretty consistent as well. Highly recommend for anyone that wants a tabletop solution that's still spacious enough for larger capacity items.

The Avantco portable countertop ovens are great. They heat up pretty quickly and are easy to move, which is very important for our catering team. One issue we have found is that with frequent opening the door will become loose and the oven loses it seal. We may have to repair our. That being said however, these are great ovens and we highly recommend them, especially if you need a portable oven for catering gigs.

I have had no issues with this countertop oven. It puts off very little heat, which is great in the small space we have it in. Like any oven, it does have some hot spots, so I rotate my sheets halfway through. I have had no complaints and am contemplating purchasing a second one!

Although I measured this now that its on the counter it feels much larger than I thought it would. The openings between the racks are also relatively low so you can't bake anything very tall.

I have only had these ovens for a couple of months, but as of right now, I love them. They were extremely affordable, stack easily, and hold a lot of food. Other reviewers are right in noting that most of the time, you won't actually use 4 sheet pans in them because of the limited height - really the only thing I've been able to do that with is bacon or other flat meat products, like sausage links, etc. But you can certainly fit 3 cupcake pans or anything like that with no trouble. Great buy!

Leah Wilcox from
Posted on 12/29/2016 12:00:00 AM

I cannot say enough great things about this oven, I have two of them and they are wonderful. I started a small bakery and these helped me bypass getting an expensive hood system installed. My production capacity with two of these is essentially the same as a residential oven, though there is the benefit of being able to bake at different temperatures. A few nuances that I have noticed: - Goods will bake faster, and some recipes will need to have the temperature reduced by 25-50 degrees (creme brulee, cheesecake) - While it has the capacity for four racks/trays, it's really best to do two at a time max as the heat isn't distributed as evenly with more than two trays in at a time. And for macarons, I only ever load on tray at a time. You can only fit two, half size cupcake pans in at once, meaning that you can essentially bake 24 cupcakes at one time in this oven. I use tulip liners and space the pans out and they work well. - There is no broiler feature (not an application I have use for but something to keep in mind.) - Oven is made to utilize commercial half-size pans. I have some pans I got a deal on but they were just slightly too large, intended for home use. - The fan make a noticeable sound but it's not overly loud or obnoxious. - There is no oven light. Honestly for the price, these ovens are a great bargain and perfect if you're starting a food operation on a low budget. I run them both five days a week for usually at least 8 hours.

This oven is great for a small space and small cooking needs. We tend to refer to this oven as "our easy bake" oven due to its small size, yet works great in a limited amount of prep space.

Kevin Muller from Crazy Crepe
Posted on 12/27/2017 12:00:00 AM

I have a small boutique pie shop. I use this oven to bake our pies. It seems the back, right portion of this oven is hotter than the rest as my pies on that side tend to burn. So I have to regularly rotate my pies during the cooking process to prevent them from burning. Other than that glitch this oven bakes my pies very well. Flakey crust cooked all the way through and much quicker than our regular electric oven. I would buy another one if I needed it - I really like it. I recommend it for a small bakery/shop environment on a limited budget.

I have never had or used a convection oven before so this was a new toy in the kitchen. this thing really cooks fast, in many cases twice as fast as a conventional oven. this means a lot to a small store with limited staff. I can really get fresh made orders out quick. very well built unit, only negative to me is that it could use a better, more precise, timer. I have a magnetic digital timer mounted on the front of the stove that I can set to the second and this solves my timer problem. overall it is an excellent product.

I just received this oven and fired it up for a test bake using some croissants. While it is a small oven and you do have to rotate the pans, you also need to do that in any other convection oven unless you get a rotational rack oven. This oven is solid, clean, runs quiet, and heats up/maintains its heat very quickly. Not sure what the negative reviews are for, but this seems like a great oven so far.

This item came with a piece unattached, once we figured out it was reverse threaded it went back in to place easily. We have limited space in our kitchen and this oven does a great job for the size. We have issues keeping the temperature regulated and the adjustment dial seems to be a bit off. We bought an inexpensive oven thermometer and that makes it easier to regulate now. We are looking at buying another to stack. It cooks nicely for the size/cost.

This unit works as well as can be expected for a countertop oven. It's 'convection' qualities leave much to be desired. The edges are definitely hot spots and baked goods baked off in here are mediocre when compared to baked goods baked off site in our large convection oven. We use this unit in our very small restaurant for toasting of bread, finishing off of par-cooked bacon to get it to crisp, and daily baking of scones and cookies on site. It's interior size is its best feature. I personally like that it does not have an automatic timer to turn off. I would purchase this unit again if ever necessary.

I love this new oven! It's perfect for home use and the instructions are simple to read! They had forgotten the racks however, once I contacted them about it, it came immediately and I was excited about using it. The oven is very good at baking cakes, cupcakes and cookies! For bread, it doesn't work too well however, you have to open the oven and turn it in certain angles to make sure the bread browns evenly. Not a problem since I usually bake cupcakes and cookies. I totally recommend this!

Bought this oven to replace a Turbo Chef and it fits our needs perfectly. We have a small cafe and are using it to make sandwiches and heat up small items. We love it bc the Turbo Chef was pumping out so much heat even when idle. This oven is quiet - the only thing I will say is that when the fan is blowing there is a rattling sound that sounds like the it's hitting a piece of metal inside. And the door is very squeaky for some reason. Nothing a little WD40 can't fix I'm sure

This oven has its quirks! I know they say every oven is a learning experience, so let me share what I've learned. The hot spot is the back right-hand side of the oven. If you bake with more than 2 trays, the temperature will drop too much to keep a consistent bake, so you will have to add time to all of your items. You will have to rotate SOME items, not all. Anything in rows. Surprisingly enough, I have baked cakes and cookies at the same time, and I found that the cakes do not need to be turned at all. They bake really evenly thanks to the circular shape. From time to time, this oven rattles. It is not completely stable inside. Make sure your trays are not directly touching the back of the oven, and be sure to clean it frequently!!!!! Also, take good care of the seal. Mine seemed to be a little worn on day one, and I kick myself for not speaking up about it. The seal on the oven door must be watched closely. I would recommend this oven for very light use. If you are starting a small business, this is not the right oven for you.
