I baked some bacon, biscuits, whole wheat bread and yes pizzas as well. Warming plate is hot even when brewing on Single-Serve side. Must say this ~ can't believe how much I use it now. Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter or touch hot surfaces, including stove. This oven is nice if you are using your regular oven for other food so it will be nice for family gatherings. I would recommend a good convection oven cookbook and silicone oven mitts.
There is a new odor smell but eventually goes away. Temps up to 450 degrees and timer up 2 hours 120 minutes. Oven is so easy to clean. The pizzas came out perfectly. I think this Hamilton Beach Countertop Oven with Convection and Rotissiere might just be the answer for me. I used the standard 8 x 5 aluminum pan I don't have to do as much clean-up using those.
I have never done a rotisserie chicken before in my life. The unit includes 2 cooking racks, baking pan, broiler rack and rotisserie accessories. Hamilton Beach has mastered the art of Rotisserie Chicken, the timing, the self basting and the grease catcher tray at the bottom. Supply cord replacement and repairs must be conducted by the manufacturer, its service agent, or similarly qualified persons in order to avoid a hazard. Also, a dial or temperature indicator showing the actual temperature during preheat mode would have helped. This feature is what intrigued me and drew me to this oven and I have to say that it was well worth it. Cook pizzas, bake cakes, brownies, muffins, cookies, whole chickens on the rotisserie using convection.
Add correct amount of water to water reservoir. The electrical rating of the extension cord must be equal to or greater than the rating of the appliance. Immediately I put this to work. Our team is dedicated to keeping your kitchen moving forward. I will be taking this with me on our travels since we have a huge event coming up and a lot of cooking to do.
Remember it is an oven and yes it gets hot. This is a great addition to my kitchen. Rotate brew selector dial to the right to select Single-Serve. I am really enjoying this countertop oven! Replaced a 7 year old 6 slice that got tired. The controls are on front so it is easy to set and check as cooking progresses. But this will fit on standard counter-top in my opinion.
It doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles on it which keeps the price down but this is a safety issue. It cooks food more evenly too, so no opening the hot oven aka making the house hot as an oven to turn pans or foods. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the plug by modifying the plug in any way or by using an adapter. My regular oven is so large that the small loaf pan seems to get lost but this oven is perfect for these. I know nothing is perfect in life but this machine is very close. Brew basket should be rinsed after every use. Comes with the needed equipment for rotisserie.
Everything came out well cooked and evenly cooked. Do not set a hot carafe on a wet or cold surface. I'm so excited to try the self-basting rotisserie function! For being a countertop oven, it fits good size pans. It would have been a nice touch. The Hamilton Beach Countertop oven is very easy to clean and requires no assembly, which made jumping in and cooking a breeze. Read the directions it works perfectly every-time.
The chicken tasted great and had a restaurant quality, partly because of my seasoning and partly because of the brilliance of this countertop oven. Coffee maker will shut off automatically and light will go off when brew cycle is completed 3 beeps will sound. Do not place coffee maker on or near a hot gas or electric burner or in a heated oven. This countertop oven is a beauty to look at and has a design that makes any kitchen look even better. I do miss it having a toast feature but I can use the broiler and turn bread, waffles, bagels etc.
I am baking a frozen lasagna for dinner tonight and looking forward to seeing the results with my new countertop oven. I then put in 2 pans side by side and there were no 'soft' spots. Care must be taken, as burns can occur from touching hot parts or from spilled, hot liquid. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged supply cord or plug, or after the appliance malfunctions or has been dropped or damaged in any manner. You must turn it past 40 minutes to start the oven and can set it back if you need less.
Also cupcakes and small fruit pies. Allow 2 minutes to cool in between brews. I look forward to making some more rotisserie chicken in this oven. Por favor llámenos — nuestros amables representantes están listos para ayudar. I just like that setting but I tried conventional as well.
