really, really happy with this purchase. The oven is compact, heats quickly, is easy to get working out of the box, and does the job.

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.

This oven is simply amazing. I purchased it for personal use in my RV - because RV ovens are so bad! This oven rivals my dual convection oven in my house! I love it! Even baking - I have baked so many items in this already - cookies, breads, pies, cakes, rolls, etc. There is nothing this little gem can't handle - and the price point is amazing! I would buy this over and over and over again!

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

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

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.

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.

We use this in one of our food trucks. I prefer this one over the quarter size. You can fit a little more in it.

Outstanding countertop convection oven. Needs minimal space and cooks to perfection. Great for baking cookies, and the removable racks make it easy for larger items

The convent size is easily transported between our locations and for special events. It is easy to use and can be set up any where.

Another successful install in a customers concession trailer. Very nice quality and finish. Got it on sale making it a bonus. If it goes on sale again will buy more.

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.

Perfect size for use in small restaurant or food truck kitchens, very good quality for the price all stainless steel comes protected for the shipment.

There is a learning curve to using this oven but overall it does a decent job. We like to use it for our flatbread pizzas because it warms up quickly.

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.

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.

Perfect size oven for a small business! I have a bakery I use it for, no exhaust system needed for use. I am to fit 4 quarter sheet trays inside or two trays of 1/2doze cupcakes. So small but definitely gets the job done!

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!

This oven has been great for the couple of months we've been using it. Definitely follow the instructions and run the oven at least a day before service so you can get rid of the plastic smell it ships with.

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

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.

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!

Nice convection oven!! Had about a month and no complaints! Cooks evenly and fast. Great for those that need a countertop convection oven with limited space

great for tight spaces and cooks for the most part evenly. I did although have to take the fan shroud off and re adjust the fan, kind of an inconvienence as I did have to do some work. Best price on the net!

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.
