If you’re looking for a small convection oven to use in a college dorm or apartment, or even in a regular house, then this is a great product for you. I used it for a number of uses, and I was pretty impressed every time.

I used it primarily to cook small meals, to add some variety to my diet. I wanted to be able to experiment with new recipes, and this unit fit the bill. It’s great for things like desserts, pastries, entrees, meats, veggies, and even bread.

And the steam setting is great for a wide selection of foods. You can steam or poach fish, veggies, poultry, and rice. Roast a chicken or broil a steak with a moist, juicy interior and a wonderfully crisp exterior.

Breads can be proofed and baked with golden crusts and light, flaky interiors. And why stop there? With this small kitchen appliance, you can bake to your heart’s content – pretzels, donuts, savory and sweet pastries, and more!

The interior is made of nontoxic stainless steel, and cleanup is a breeze. The touch of a button activates the steam-clean mode, which penetrates burnt on grime and grease that can then be wiped up with little effort.

A large dial scrolls through the settings to select cook functions quickly, change any preset temperatures and times, and choose your desired toast shade.

The start/cancel button starts and stops the cooking cycle, times, and selected temperatures, and a green LED glows around the button to show when cooking has begun.

There’s also a button for the interior light, so you can check on foods without having to open the door. A click of the button will turn the light on for two minutes.

A large LCD screen backlit with a blue light shows the cooking function and icon, time, temperature, toast shade, active heating elements, and an “add water” alert.

A preheat indicator light goes out once the desired temperature has been reached. Plus, the “add water” indicator will light up and sound a continuous tone when the reservoir needs to be filled.

The removable water reservoir holds 6 cups of liquid (1.4 liters), and it needs to be filled for all steam functions, including cleaning. And the timer can be set for up to 120 continuous minutes.

The single oven rack has four positions that can be set for a variety of functions. The top two are perfect for broiling. A middle position is great for cooking standard-sized foods, side dishes, toast, and bagels. And a lower position works for roasts, casseroles, baked goods, and poultry.

A slide-out drip tray underneath the unit collects any excess liquid, and it may be removed easily for cleaning. An interior crumb tray also slips out easily for quick cleanup. A baking pan, broil rack, and well-written user’s manual with recipe book are also included.

Plus, there are two cleats on the back side to wrap the cord and keep the countertop clear. And all materials that may come in contact with food are BPA free.

The Cuisinart Combo Plus Convection measures approximately 19.5 x 14 x 11 inches, weighs a touch over 24 pounds, has an interior area of 0.60 cubic feet, and uses 1800 watts of power. It will hold a 4.5-pound chicken or a 12-inch pizza.
