A few years ago, while in the process of building my chemical-free home, we had to stay in a basement apartment. Because of a situation which happened with a contractor (that's a story for another time) we ended up living in the apartment for three years. The stove did not work and the landlord was not interested in fixing it. In order to cook healthy meals while in the apartment I used a toaster oven and an electric frying pan. This is all I used for cooking just about anything imaginable for 3 whole years.
My toaster oven was a convection oven and was wonderfully fast to cook and bake everything from roast chicken to pies and muffins. It finally gave up on me in it's forth year of constant use.
Once we moved into our new home, I started using a regular oven. I noticed how much more energy it burns having to heat up such a large space. Only having to cook for two people, the time and heat it takes to cook in such a large oven seems like such a waste.
I went on a quest to find a counter top oven with .9 or more cubic feet (this can roast a large chicken), I wanted convection heat but most importantly it had to be free from toxic teflon coatings. It has been 5 years now that I have been searching for the perfect counter top oven.
While searching for safe items to add to my store I finally found my dream oven. This is definitely on my list of must have items.
Not only is this oven completely stainless steel both inside and out, without any non stick coatings, has convection and has a choice of .9 cubic feet or 1.5 cubic feet ...It also has a rotisserie and is commercial grade. I'm so excited to have found this oven.
Here is the description and specs:
