I found this oven leaks heat excessively such that the area surrounding the oven is extremely hot. Additionally the oven does not hold a constant heat as verified by my oven thermometer. I was trying to hold 265 degrees and could not hold this temperature for longer than 5 minutes at a time. The oven either kept heating or didn't. The dials are loose and hard to control - perhaps that is part of the problem, that and the fact that it leaks heat. Anyway, this is going back and you might want to choose another, I am going to try the Oster convection oven.
