What do you guys think of http://www.krupsusa.com/All+Products/Toaster+Ovens/6-slice+Toasters+Ovens/Products/FBC4/FBC4.htm

I'm trying to get an electric Oven for baking desserts (or anything in cookingforengineers.com). I'm new at cooking and looking for advice. I'm not in the states (Zapopan, México) and i know i can find Krups here, and i also like the brand i've had good experiences with it.

I'm looking for advice/suggestions.

I see it maxes at 450 ºF, and 1 hour 30 mins on time. Not sure if there's something i could do that would need more than that.


Thanks in advanced.

It looks good for what it is, but I think you will have much more even heating in a regular oven. This toaster oven may be ok for small things like individual serving custard bowls or other similar sized dishes, but not for anything large.

Hay,

You may want to consider an older Farberware Turbo Convection oven off ebay. A friend gave me one years ago and have nothing but great success with it. I stuffed it absolutely full with 1 good sized goose earlier this year and it came out absolutely perfect. Same with pies and other goodies. It's shortfall is with bread that sits on a stone with flour on it, the flour gets blown all over the place.

Search ebay for farberware turbo oven and you'll see a few there.

If mine broke, I'd buy a replacement of the same in a split second.

Thanks for the response!

I couldn't find the Farbeware oven, so I ordered Krups. I'll let you know how did it go :-D
