I'm looking for a convection toaster oven... any recommendation?

Online review says Krups or Cuisinart is good. Any experience?

We bought a GE model at Wal-Mart. It takes awhile to toast bread, but otherwise performs very well.

Last year for Christmas my brother got me the EuroPro Convection Toaster Oven and I love it.

He just got me the regular model, which goes for about $50 to $60 at most regular department stores (I believe he picked it up at K-Mart, but I think Macy's and Linen & Things also have it.)

They also make a fancier, digital model that goes for about $90.

I should add - he got this for me because I rented an apartment with no range! And believe it or not - I use this for everything! I had to get some smaller pans, but I have roasted meat, baked meat and pastries, roasted veggies, etc. in it. And even smaller pans weren't hard to come by - I use lots of nice Pyrex small casseroles or even regular loaf pans.

For some reason , I have never had a toaster oven that did not either go on fire or spark out. And, this does not happen to me with any other appliances. I just have bad luck with them , I guess and I have not even had one for years.

I have a Krups and I can't seem to kill the thing. I recommend.

I've never used a convection oven, only regular toaster ovens. I highly recommend them though: if you only cook for 2/3 people, why heat up your whole oven. I've made mini meatloaf, chicken breasts, fruit crisps, etc. - you name it. (Cookies are a pain, when our regular oven didn't work I had to bake 6 cookies at a time, lmao).
