Bought this as the oven in my rental didnt work & landlords wouldnt replace. Heats up fast, cooks evenly, i baked everything from roasts to breads and sweets. Left it behind when we move and now there is a newer model, so Im hoping it is just as good as we are going to get it instead of using a big oven, we loved ut so much.

Good oven for the price
I purchased this oven after reading the reviews but I cannot say that this is the ideal oven for me. My previous oven was a Breville Smart oven which of course was three times more expensive than the Kmart 45L convection oven. Firstly the Kmart oven comes for a song - only $99 for a large 45L oven. It has a top and a bottom element and also includes the rotisserie function. It would be unfair to compare this with my previous expensive Breville oven, but there are some basic drawbacks to this oven. The functions knobs are not very clear. It take...s a while to get used to knowing which functions to use for different foods. The baking function which I finally figured out did give me pretty good results but their is no pre-heating function so one needs to constantly monitor the timer. I cooked a small chicken in the rotisserie and it took much longer than the time described in the manual. Not sure if I will use this oven for long, but if you need a budget oven it is very good value for money.

Great cheap oven
I got this in October 2018 when our main oven broke down. This was to do till we got a replacement. We haven't bothered to. Have been using this virtually every day. Roasts, chips, pizzas, cakes, you name and its been cooked in it. Still works perfectly. Total bargain. Great having top and bottom elements as you can use just the top ones when you want to crisp something up or get a ballanced cook. Worth every cent.
Great oven- watch the temperature though
Our main oven had an element burn out and we needed an oven the next day! So purchased this little beauty. It bakes cakes, roasts meats and cooks casseroles really well. The only issue is the temperature is a little high, as I found out when my first cake had burnt edges! I bought an oven thermometer ($8) which now sits inside the oven. I found there were different variants of temperature dependent on whether both top & bottom was on, or just one or the other. The thermometer helps to ensure the correct temp. is achieved. Could just be my oven,...but just be wary! It heats up really quickly and cools down fast! It is quite large - takes up a lot of bench space, but in saying that, it can hold a lot of food. I've used it for 3 weeks - every day - and I haven't bothered to order a new element yet (mainly because of the cost to have it installed). I will still keep this oven when the built-in one is fixed- it will come in handy for dinner parties! Haven't tried the rotisserie - I might be challenged to try this in the future!
Perfect little oven
Bought this oven when we moved into our new house as we are building a new kitchen this oven is great I've cooked baked dinners cakes casseroles the oven works better than my old built in oven and for $99 how great is that mu family were like thats not going to cook a baled dinner they were all very shocked when baked came out tasting delish they all said wow that cooks better than the big ovens.
Bought on the spur of the moment, and used every meal time since
Bought a Convection Oven for my wife to try, from K Mart about 1 month ago. She loves cooking and preparing meals. We have used it every night and during the day on weekends instead of the oven. She normally uses an Electric Oven and Gas Hot Plates, plus all the other Electrical appliances as required, Juicer, Hot Pot/Slow Cooker etc etc First thing we noticed, is it cooks roast meat and chops beautifully, without burning or overcooking, cooks moist delicious cakes, fries chips (all without needing oil, other than a light spray on the bowl bef...ore cooking anything). It can dry out sliced fruit and vegetables (as desired) Cooking time is shorter. Cleaning up the bowl and metal extension ring (if used) takes minutes, and now the oven barely gets used. The oven didn't get clean within minutes.! The only drawback is, that the bowl gets very hot, but also cools off quickly. The oven would get very hot and then heat up the kitchen/family room, great on a hot day NOT ! The shop assistant in Kmart said, I'm going to buy one also, at that price you can't go wrong. We have used it now for about a month. If it broke, I would immediately go and get another one. This is one great, time saver, and cooker.

A great product at a great price. I bought this oven bcoz after moving to our new home i didnt like the inbuild oven as it use to burn the food from the sides and not cooking from the middle. But this oven is great. I have made pizza and a cake and the results were perfect. Still waiting to try the rotsserie function but im sure it will be good too bcoz there are heat rods on top and bottom as well as fan on the sides for distriputing the heat evenly during the rotissrie fumction.

Brilliant bench top convection oven
Kmarts 45L Convection oven is the best I have tried so far. I cook loads of sour doughs and it does it perfectly ever time. I have another for roasts again the same results. Dual controls, you can grill, bake, roast even use the rotisserie which gives a beautiful roast.
Questions & Answers
I have this oven & the bottom element has blown, only used about 5 times. Can you get replacement elements. Keeps tripping circuit breaker.
