We recently purchased a countertop oven. It has turned out to be one of the best decisions we have ever made.
A countertop oven is NOT a toaster oven. They might look somewhat similar, but a countertop oven is more powerful and has a much larger cooking capacity. The countertop oven we chose is a commercial grade oven, and it is large enough to roast a turkey. It is also large enough to accommodate multiple racks of regular sized bakeware.
Our oven can be used with or without the convection feature. I had never used a convection oven before, and I am finding this feature very appealing. There is also a rotisserie, although I have not yet tried this.
Now the best part… the countertop oven uses less energy, so it costs much less to bake something in this oven than it does in a regular oven. And whenever I use the convection feature (which I have been doing most of the time), baking time is cut almost in half… meaning even less energy is used and we save even more.
And an unexpected bonus… we did a lot of research and shopping around, finally decided on a particular model, and then stumbled upon a great opportunity to purchase the exact oven we wanted that let us save nearly $200 off the regular retail price!

Note: Sorry, but I cannot recommend a model or manufacturer. We were able to purchase our countertop oven because of business connections we made during those years of running our business, but the circumstances were unusual and could not be duplicated even if we wanted to purchase the same brand or same oven again.
