KitchenAid 12-in Countertop Convection Oven
Stopped baking after 15 months
Bought this toaster convection oven on sale for $99.00 at the end of December 2011. I was very happy with it until about 15 months later when the unit would not bake. I now have a $99.00 toaster as that is all it will do now. I called Kitchen Aid and the rep said she couldn't do anything but offer a phone number so I could get it repaired at my cost ( this unit comes with a one year warranty). l asked to speak to a supervisor who offered to send me a replacement for $50.00 and I would have to ship my old one back to them. Awaiting my new one and hopefully it will last longer this time. Hoping I don't get a refurbished one or another lemon.

Great Small Oven Lousy Toaster
We replaced my beloved old toaster oven with this model when updating our kitchen. It works very well as a small oven, but is a terrible toaster. It takes a LONG time to toast two slices of bread, and the toasting level is very uneven from one side of the bread to the other. The top is deep brown before the bottom has any colour. As this is the primary use of the unit for us, I am disappointed. Also, it does not have an internal light as many less expensive models do.

Broke after 13 months
My wife and I purchased this to save on always using our large oven. It seemed to be okay quality wise at first however the convection fan sometimes would rattle. It worked quite well for a year but broke after 13 months. I have tried contacting Kitchen Aid and registered the product as required. It has been 4 days and I have not heard back from them so far. I would NOT recommend this product or ANY Kitchen Aid product due to this poor quality. My next toaster oven will be from a manufacturer with a better than 1 year warranty.

I live alone and don't have a microwave. (don't want one). My apartment would heat up considerably when turning on the oven, however I still wanted home cooked meals if a friend came over or for my self. This is the perfect solution! For quicker cooking, I use the convection, lots of room to cook for 2 people, and an energy saver as well! Love it!
