The oven came with plenty of protective packing and required very little assembly. This oven is a little taller than a typical toaster oven but it can perform so many more tricks. It is light weight and easy to move on the counter top. I have not used the rotisserie or steamer functions yet but I am excited to do so in the future. I think the rotisserie will make the house smell good and this option leaves the big oven available for baking a side dish or dessert at the same time. The hinge on the glass door has tension on it so it allows you to open the door to whatever point you choose rather than just having the option of wide open or shut. The glass is easy to peer though so you can see if your food is browning. I have toasted bagels and English muffins and the browning seems even. The oven automatically turns off when the timer goes off. The bottom broiler pan removes easily for cleaning. I feel that this item was definitely worth the purchase price.
