    Large Footprint, Cooks nice

    Package arrived and it came in a large box. Upon opening I was pleasantly surprised, it was nicely made and solid. The instructions were pretty easy to follow and quick for me to start cooking right away. I dont have a lot of countertop space and felt this was a little to large for a countertop appliance. I know it will fit a 12 inch pie but if I want to cook a large pizza pie I would just use my oven. The reason for the 4 stars is because because of the footprint, but I am very impressed with how nicely the food came out. The chicken wings, mozzarella sticks, cauliflower pizza and hot dogs came out crispy and perfectly cooked and moist. As far as maintenance is concerned I have to be on top of it, it is not a deal breaker. One last con is that it is a little loud, but overall I like it as a quick to use appliance when I dont want to pre heat the oven and start cooking immediately.

    Nice oven

    I have been testing this oven out for a few meals and have been pretty happy. It is easy to use, does not require any preheating, and it cooks evenly. The inside is spacious enough that I can fit some nice sized dishes in without a problem and the interior surface is also smooth and easy to clean. While it takes up more counter space than a traditional toaster oven, it also has more capabilities. I have not had to use my regular oven since I started using this. Depending on what I am making, that equates to saved time and electricity since I did not have to preheat. So far, the only negative is that the trays are huge. They are not made to slide halfway out and stay in place like a traditional toaster or oven. My guess is that they intend for them to just be removed when cooking is complete. But with their size, they do not fit anywhere else in my kitchen. I wish they could rest on a track. Second, the trays are dishwasher safe but it is a huge challenge to fit them into the dishwasher without taking up a large amount of space that could be occupied by other dishes from the meal. Overall, I am happy. But smaller might be a little better.

    A huge upgrade from convection!

    I like many folks, don't always have time to cook a full meal even with 2 kids. So I sometimes make frozen foods. I went from a mid level toaster oven with convection. I thought the food with my old machine cooked well. That was until I tried this sharp oven with super heated steam. I didn't know much about that super heated steam feature but Wow is all I can say. I tried foods my kids love first. So a frozen pizza was cooked first. The pizza sauce was quite hot and the chees was not over cooked like in traditional counter top ovens. I really was surprised as I thought it would be the same as convection. But man then I did chicken nuggets and frozen fries. They both were cooked evenly and not over done on the outsides. The flavor seemed better as well. It's amazing for sure. Especially if you don't want to use all that electricity with the oven and you are in a rush or want a break from cooking a whole meal. Also this oven is beautiful, not that it's more important than the food but sharp really put thought into the design. Looks very high end. The options and buttons are plenty as well and easy to use once you get the hang of it. I'd say give it a shot. You won't be disappointed in you are looking for a worthy upgrade. You won't regret it. Or at least I didn't. Good luck and happy shopping!

    The Absolute Best Way To Re-heat Pizza

    This counter top steam oven has an excellent build quality and functions very well - but, its versatility is limited by its size. There is a decent amount of linear space, but the height is limited. ? The manufacturer brags that the oven can cook 9 pieces of toast, but those needing such a large quantity of bread would also need space to cook a large quantity of other items. ? Sadly, that space simply isn't there. ? Successful use of this oven does require some trial & error as the cooking times listed on food packaging doesn't seem to match what is required here. ? While pre-heating isn't required, cook times still seem to be a few minutes longer than expected. ? Luckily, the interior light and the window ensure that it is easy to view the current state of your food (that is, when the steam isn't fogging up your view). ? The price seemed high at first, but I have been absolutely blown away by how well it re-heats pizza. ? The steam keeps the crust soft and moist while the bottom is re-crisped and the cheese is brought back to the perfect bubbling hot temperature. ? I will never use the microwave to re-heat pizza again. ?? While this oven does have its limitations, I am confident that this device isn't a gimmick. ? It is easy to use, is built to last, and very much holds its own as a worthwhile addition to the kitchen. ? PROS: + Does a phenomenal job re-heating pizza. + The steam does a good job of keeping food moist. ? @@@@@@@@ Over cooking may burn the outside, but still generally leaves the interior moist) + Solid build quality (should last for many years) + Simple & intuitive controls that are bright, easy to read, and aesthetically pleasing + Door handle stays cool to the touch + The window & interior light make it easy to see the food which helps to monitor cooking progress + The door is held close with a magnet (which means it is extremely unlikely that the door would break, or fail to seal properly) + Runs quietly + Does not require time to pre-heat + Comes with a Broiling Pan and Crisper Tray + The drip tray successfully catches the condensations that results from all of the steam that escapes the oven CONS: - No button to turn interior light on/off - Expels a large amount of steam when door is opened. ? This can cause burns, or eventually damage cabinets above the oven. - Drip tray needs to be changed after each use, but as it is tucked under the unit - it isn't always easy to remove without spilling. - Water reservoir is small and needs to be refilled after each item cooked. ? @@@@@@@@ If you make multiple pizzas, you will need to refill the reservoir for each pizza). - Manufacturer Instructions for grocery store items do not include accurate cook times for this steam oven. ? It takes a bit of trial and error to discover accurate cook times. - Interior of oven isn't tall enough to cook many items such as roasted chicken, meatloaf, or loaf of bread. ? A few additional inches would go a long way without taking up any additional counter space. - Stainless steel case gets too hot to have items resting on top of it. - Slightly heavy - meaning that you will not want to move it. ? It will probably be a permanent addition to your countertop.
