Need countertop oven...want advice please

The previous owners of our home remodeled the kitchen and put in a gas cooktop and an Advantium oven. I am still trying to get used to using the Advantium oven, and miss not having a conventional oven. I'd like to get a countertop oven that I can use for low, slow roasting, and baking, etc.

I have done some research and found the Waring Pro Convection oven and the Cadco Convection oven. Reviews have been positive on both, with some unhappiness regarding the Waring. I don't know if the Cadco can be used in just a Bake mode, w/o the convection fan going?

Does anyone have either of these ovens, and how do you like them? Can the Cadco be used w/o the convection? Are there any other options out there for me?

Thank you in advance, I appreciate any and all opinions/recommendations. mary

  1. The Waring Pro does slow cooking without convection. It can be set very low on slow, or on convection, for proofing (or drying out wet electronics!)
    It does not use convection on the broil setting, or rotisserie, my only disappointments.
