This toaster oven has a multitude of features and can fit in a smaller space without sacrificing much else. It might not do the job quite as fast as a regular oven in some cases, but for most things it will work just fine. I like using it for pizza, as you can get it nice and crispy by using just the racks. The rotisserie is a nice touch, though I haven't tried it yet. But it does seem like it would work fine for that and cook the chicken evenly, as it does with most food. The toaster works great, giving a perfect heated bagel. The knobs are easy to use. I also like the broiler on it, that is a good way to cook the top, just watch it often. I kind of like this broiler better than the regular oven one. Some things might take longer than in the normal oven, but it isn't that big of a difference. Of course, its perfect in the summer when you want to bake something and not heat the house up. Hamilton Beach make some good products and this continues the trend of that.
