Now that propane is more expensive than it used to be, many of us are trying to conserve it. So let’s say that you wanted to make tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches for dinner (um..one of my favorite combinations). It makes much more sense to pop the sandwiches in a smaller convection oven than a conventional oven. You don’t use any propane, and you also don’t have to heat up the house (for those of you who live in warmer climates).
The Kenmore Elite Digital Countertop Convection Oven makes a great holiday gift. Everyone loves to get things for Christmas that will make their lives easier, and this oven does just that.
Kenmore Elite Digital Countertop Convection Oven
The 1800 watt oven has a cool LED display so that you’re not turning the dial and hoping to get the right temperature for baking things, and the stainless steel construction will COMPLIMENT any kitchen nicely. It’s also got a ready indicator light for preheating, so you know exactly when the oven is ready to start cooking something at the right temperature, instead of guessing and ending up with half soggy, half burned pizzas.
It’s also got a nice removable crumb tray, so cleanup is easy. (Make sure to clean your crumb tray frequently. Too many crumbs in the toaster has actually been the cause of many house fires.) The rest of the unit wipes down, and you can just throw the oven rack in the dishwasher.
Because it’s a convection oven, your food heats evenly and faster than it would in a conventional oven. The heat surrounds the food so that you don’t end up with things that are overdone on either the top or the bottom and uncooked on the other side. The rapid cook quartz heating technology makes things like chicken breasts, French bread pizzas, TV dinners, sandwiches, spring rolls, and baked potatoes an easy task. There is plenty of room in there to make just about everything. You can even make a small batch of cookies if you want to.
Convection ovens are also perfect gifts for college students (if their dorm allows them), singles, and couples. No one wants to heat up an entire oven to make a meal for one, and just because a person is single doesn’t mean that they should spend their lives eating takeout. Aside from children, there is really no one that wouldn’t be happy to find this oven under the tree this year.
The Kenmore Elite Digital Countertop Convection Oven retails for $149.99, and can be found at Kenmore.com.
