I love this oven. It will cook a whole chicken in one hour. Cooks fish in 20 minutes or less depending on how much. I have made meat loaves in it too.
Have yet to roast veggies but will do that. I heat stuff up in it and it is really fast. A bowl or plate of food will be ready (if heating up) in about 5-10 minutes. I don't use a microwave because I believe they are dangerous, they change the food and make it unsafe. No worries here with this oven it is safe and fast, a great substitute for a microwave in many ways. Plus, you get food browned and crispy if you want it. It is truly cooked like you expect from a real oven. A microwave just destroys food and turns it to rubber. It fits well on my counter top and is fairly easy to clean. For me it has been worth every penny. I eat alot of fish and use it at least 4 or 5 times a week cooking fish, beef or chicken.
The first one sent to me was defective but it was easy to send it back and they sent me a new one right away. It works perfectly. I have owned it for about two months now. We will see how long it lasts.
I have been using turbo ovens for nearly 20 years. This is my third one and I really enjoy the healthy delicious meals cooked in it - you can grill, bake, broil. When I moved I had to leave my first one behind and I really missed it until I found another one - they are not sold in stores and I do not know why.
My second one got overworked for 10+ years of usage and now I have the Narita. Works great, and I would say that all the ads are understatements of its qualities. When you get used to it you will find out it is even better than described.
Add to it the great service, provided by Overstock and it is worth every penny. They treat you as VIP and I will buy some more for the rest of my family and friends. It is a great gift, especially for Thanksgiving. The turkey cooked in it with the extension ring will have nothing equal.
The oven itself was about what I expected when ordered and it works well, though you have to get accustomed to using it as opposed to a standard oven. It heats up very quickly and cooks much faster and is great for just about anything we have tried but cleaning the lid is a pain since it cannot be submersed in water (because of the attached motor) and the best you can do is wipe it down with a rag and whatever cleaner is appropriate. Small issue, but still a pain when cooking anything that causes grease to accumulate. Again, just a minor inconvenience. My wife and I used this oven daily, however, the fan bearing in the lid / motor housing began making a LOT of noise and finally seized up altogether after just short of 3 months of use. I contacted Overstock and they were very prompt in their response with shipping a new unit to us (which we are awaiting to arrive). Honestly, anything man-made (regardless of cost) is destined to break at some point and this bearing is a moving part in an environment that reaches 450 to 500 degrees at times, so I think I may hvae just received the 'one in a hundred' that had a weak bearing from the factory. Things break. It happens.
This unit has been excellent for defrosting and cooking entire chickens (we feed our dog a natural diet), reheating pizza, sausage and bacon (no splatters!), small roasts, pork loin, etc. We should have purchased something like this YEARS ago. ** TIP: the racks are great but the times and wires are too far apart to cook items like bacon and sauage on without them falling through. We went to the store and in the kitchen 'gadgets' section found some aluminum wire mesh for $.99 used for grilling out for the exact same reason (you put it on your grill racks to keep things like shrimp, ka-bobs, and similar from falling through the grates.) I simply used a pair of wire cutters to cut it into a circle the same size as the top rack and within 60 seconds I was done. We can now put smaller items on the mesh and cook them without a problem. When done, the mesh simply goes in the dishwasher. Problem solved.
All in all, I would recommend this oven as it actually works well, cooks much faster than a full-size oven, is convenient to use, and fits on a countertop. PERFECT for apartments and small kitchens. However, just in case you receive a unit with a weak part, I would recommend keeping the box for a while in the event that it must be shipped back to Narita or Overstock for repair or replacement. Again, it's doubtful - but might happen.
I got trouble with the first one I ordered but Overstock's customer service was so helpful and sent me the replacement in 3 days. This oven is really help me save my time of cooking and cleaning whenever I want to grill steaks or spare ribs and lamb chops. Meats are cooked perfectly and the juices are still in the meat whenever i cut them. Now I just store my marinated meat in the freezer and in the morning, I just let in thaw in the sink, comeback from work it only take me 20 minutes to get dinner ready for my family. I will try to cook soups and bake cakes in it. It is the best choice that I made in my kitchen. Thanks a million Overstock! One trick that I learn is to put the foil tray on the bottom to help cleaning the oven easier!

How accurate was the on site description of the product? This oven is not digital but it seems fine to me to turn the knobs by hand.
It is one good little oven! I am happy and wonder hoer,w I ever cooked for so long with it. However, there are a few things that must be taken into consideration:
1. It cooks very fast and until you get to know the moods of this little oven, the best advice is for you to be in front of it looking at the food being cooked. I burnt my peppers yesterday.
2. The noise that others complained about is not a problem for me....it is like a fan noise.
3. The instructions advise you to 'pre heat it' please don't do this...your food will burn. I am making my second batch of Flan and the pan's contents are swirling....let's see how this turns out.
4. The oven temeprature starts at 300, before that the setting is for 'Thaw'. I had to put my Flan a few inches from the 300 or it would have burnt.
5. I wish it would have included another shelf, not as high as the one that comes with the oven. This shelf would have been ideal for 'bein Marie'
6. I made fish croquettes without a drop of oil and the croquettes were like if they had been deep fried. Great for your health.
7. I hate white...but it is the only color it comes in.
8. page 8: croissants: set thermostat at 220F - where is this? the oven starts at 300 and before that at Thaw...so one must guess where is 220
The first pages of the booklet are full of useless instructions...all they needed to add was 'don't shower with the oven'!!! Got it!!!
The good thing about this oven is that it doens't heat the entire house...so it saves me on a.c. bills and that it can go in the dishwasher and that for the price I paid it is worth every penny. Just get to know it/1

This is my first experience with a turo oven. I use it almost everyday now. It cooks quickly and is very easy to use. Clean up is fast and I do not have to use as many pot and pans. I wish it came with a recipe book but I have been able to look up recipes online. With a little practice I will be able to cook a great deal of the meals I am used to preparing. I bought one for my parents because it is so easy to use I think it will help them eat healthier.
Originally had a *** for three years, the problem with the *** is that it has a plastic cover that scratches, and falls apart after a couple of years or so. Also the plastic cover is smaller than this ***. When I received my *** (Turbo oven) I was thrilled to see a glass cover. The glass not only retains the heat but it crisps your vegetables, meats even pizza dough to a beautiful consistency. My chickens came out juicier, and my roasted red potatoes and acorn squash crispier. The only problem that I had was cooking biscuits and other baked items that required turning over. One side cooked and the other did not get exposure to cook sufficiently. Unfortunately, the motor burned out ON Thanksgiving day, thank gosh I had a Ronco rotisserie. I had the oven for nine months, and put it through some seriously heavy use for two people. I always buy the protection plan to ensure quick replacement. The only request I would make to the manufacturer was to increase the size of the glass cover to accommodate a 12 pound turkey, and to figure out a way for the oven to cook baked goods all the way through. I am purchasing another in the next two weeks. By the way, if you have a holiday party at work, this is the perfect oven to bring. For bosses day breakfast, I always bake a glazed ham and bring it to work in the oven. The staff was always amazed. if you need an oven, look no further.
The oven arrived very quickly and in good condition. We love this oven and have been using it often since it arrived. We love the food that comes out of the oven as well. We don't need to add oil and the food is evenly cooked; a very healthy way of cooking. We highly recommend it to anyone!!

Does it come with two racks, a low and high? As reading reviews that complained about only having ONE rack, I wanted to double check before purchasing.butterball1 on Jan 21, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Yes, this convection oven does come with two racks. If I'm referring to the right review, they state "Only issue is that there could be another mid-size rack". So actually, they wanted a mid-range rack as well. Thank you for your question. overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 24, 2013
