Customer Questions & Answers for
GE GE Convection Toaster Oven

The GE Convection Toaster Oven makes it easy for you to cook food, especially chicken and smaller varieties of meats. Based on the principle of convection cooking, this rotisserie toaster oven works using air convection and cooks food evenly. It does not create hot spots and gives the food a perfect golden color when cooked. With multiple options like rotisserie, broil, toast, keep warm, and bake, this stainless steel toaster oven is a must-have for those who prefer to spend less time on cooking. The rotisserie function grills and cooks delicious recipes just like ones you would find in a deli or restaurant. The oven comes with three shelves for proper positioning of the food. With a 21-liter capacity, this oven is big enough for baking a 12'' size pizza. The power light inside the oven chamber lets you check on food without opening the door. This door is equipped with Cool Touch handles, which do not get hot even when the oven has been working for 45 minutes.

the manual says to set the temp to max(450) and convection bake for 15 min before use. our family used it directly after the "seasoning" period was up and no one commented about funny taste. so i guess it works :)

The directions call for running it at 450 for 15 minutes, empty, with the door open before use. Follow those directions, and you won't have any trouble. Forget to open the door, and your first pizza will smell like those awful fumes.

Just used mine for the 1st time today. Food tasted GREAT. The operating manual says to leave the door open and run it on toast at top temp (450) for 15 mins to avoid odd smells or tastes. Worked great for us! I'm happy with the purchase.

Convection is a term that means the heat from the toaster oven is enhanced by the metal sides and bottom; the heat surrounds the food you're cooking. Using convection vs. non-convection really only makes a difference with microwave ovens that have the either/or feature.

Power light

On our oven, the light does not go out when temperature is reached. Is this how the oven works? How are you supposed to know when to put your food in?

The light is a "Power On" light and will not tell you when the oven has reheated to the selected temperature. You can however, tell when the temperature has been reached by looking at the bottom heating element (you can see it through the glass door). When the selected temperature has been reached, the heating element will go out.

we put our food in right away, although with frozen pizza I heat the oven first making the rack heat up so the pizza does not stick. The light above the timer is for the timer telling you the OVEN IS ON. it is not for the temperature, you will hear the oven click on and off for that

Yes it has an automatic shutoff. The timer turns it on and off.
Turn the 60min. timer for your set cooking time. When the timer is done it dings once and shuts off.
It can also be set to stay on continuously.

In the toast mode, it does turn off when the toasting cycle is done. In the other modes, if you set the timer, it also automatically turns off when done. There is also a feature that can be used in the bake mode that stays on continuously, but you have to choose this one. I love mine and highly recommend it. The large size would be great for cooking frozen pizzas and small casseroles when you're busy studying.
