This is our 3rd convection oven in 15 years. Fabre Ware and Delong were the first and much more expensive. I was a little doubtful that an oven this price could work as well, but it has exceeded our expectations. A third of the price of our last one and cooks and looks so much better. After reading the reviews about the noisy convection setting, I wasn't too, too worried as our other two were louder than the oven setting due to the fan. Well.....they must have gotten a defective one or have radar ears, because my husband and I both had to look to make sure that we had it set to convection because it barely purrs. Cooks quickly, evenly, and yes, quietly. We are very pleased as we seldom use our oven and steaks in this oven is almost as good as grilling outdoors. (is there anything better than steaks cooked on an applewood open fire grill?) A very good buy!!
