One star is way too much. This oven is just MONEY FOR NOTHING and exactly an Avantco product. We already have a small prep table from avantco that NEVER work properly. Now this ridiculous oven that we ordered last week and installed directly because we urgently needed. First of all, the design might be nice but the temperatures and time (on timer) are UNREADABLE, because of the « color » choices. The timer is deficient too. The so said convection system doesn’t work like it has to, and I don’t mean like we expect but just LIKE IT HAS. It’s not because you add a blower in it that it becomes a convection system, the blowed air has to fill the entire volume of the oven, not only a small part in the back. Beside of that, the set temperature is NEVER reach inside. Now to be honest, I don’t understand the reason why webstaurantstore put a product like Read More

Decent oven until it breaks down. The oven comes with 2 heating elements, but webstaurant/avantco will only replace one of them. So essentially if the wrong element stops working (like mine did about week past the warranty date), you're screwed. Go with another brand.

The oven is definitely bigger than I thought. It definitely works really well for cookies. however for bigger items I need to take a shelf out so that there's enough space in between the racks.

I am not happy at all with this oven. It takes a lifetime to heat it up and I don't know what is going on that mine is not able to go over 300F, I had to buy a thermometer to check the real temperature... its just sad cause its a very beautiful oven...

Heating not consistent, we are having trouble getting our baked goods to cook evenly with this oven. Have adjusted temp, spacing, turning and cannot seem to make it work for us. Small coffee shop that offers baked goodies so oven is crucial, sadly would not recommend if baking evenly is a priority.

We purchased this convection oven in Feb 2020 based on the previous reviews which ranged from 3 to 5 stars. But then due to Covid, our coffee shop was closed for a short while so we only started using it regularly Jun 2020 for just a couple of hours in the mornings. Then this July 2021, for some reason it tripped our breaker and now although the oven turns on, the fan is not working! I'm sad to see other reviews saying the same thing that this oven is only lasting for a year. Have already contacted customer service and will replace whatever parts as needed; I hope it will work again. I could deal with it having hot spots and depending what you are trying to bake, you may have to rotate the pan; even though it was not worth trying to use 2 racks at the same time, as one reviewer had mentioned, that whatever you put in the second rack will be undercooked or overcooked. Just not happy to be repairing this oven after 1 year of light usage.

Oven was decent while it lasted. It got the job done, but has hot and cold spots so pan rotation is essential to get an even baking. My second one died just over a year of purchase, though we were shut down most of 2020 due to COVID, so I would say the general lifespan of this oven is quite short. Currently in the market for a replacement...definitely looking for something more durable as replacing an oven every year or so is neither economical nor environmentally friendly.

We bought this oven in October 2019. The heating element blew in April of 2020. We received a warranty replacement for it and it just blew again in June 2021. W only use it a couple days a week too. Seems like a nice oven if they can solve this heating element issue.

This was a great little oven, but sadly lasted only a year! Too expensive to replace, should have read other reviews before purchasing. Element burned out after about 50 uses.

This oven, like many of the reviews, only lasted a year. It sparked, tripped my breaker and shut off. When we did get it to come back on, it would no longer heat. Even with COVID, the lack of business, and some business closures, when I contacted webstaurant store to resolve my issue, it was 10 days over a year so my warranty wasn’t any good. I was given the option to purchase repair parts or a new one. I have purchased many many things for my restaurant, however this was the most disappointing purchase and it has definitely left a bad taste in my mouth.

Unfortunately you get what you pay for. This is my second Avantco CO-28 oven in a year. Bought the first one on January 11th, 2020 and the second on August 15th 2020. Both with the same problem, fan works well but the heating element burned.

This was such a great buy!! It works good, doesn't get too hot on the outside and has good heat distribution. The price was very reasonable too. Would buy another.one

This was the cheapest, largest counter top convection oven I could find. I didn't have a big budget and needed to make this work. The first thing I noticed while I was baking veggies was the seal between the door and the oven would leak steam and water would start to drip down the front door. I tried fixing the seal but it just doesn't seem to fit properly. The second thing I noticed was the veggies in the back would brown first so I started to rotate the baking sheets 180 degrees halfway through the cooking process and that works wonders. Overall i'm satisfied for the time being, I do plan on replacing this in the future with a larger higher quality oven.

A perfect sized oven for my boutique bakery, I love the way it fix all of my goods perfectly and evenly, as well as time efficient. A countertop oven is perfect for space saving as well.

Amber G. from Violette's Fine Pastries on 10/29/2015
         

This is our 2nd oven from avantco and we found the best price here on webstaurant, suit for many many baking needs and build quality is amazing for the price point! Delivery was easy so 5 start all the way!

Ben Z. from Sweettoothbakeshop on 07/14/2022
         

DO NOT BUY THIS OVEN! It doesn't heat evenly. Customer service says it's normal to have inconsistent heat in this oven and that you have to rotate your pans. You can't use all 4 racks as shown and advertised. Just because it looks like a professional oven, it's not. Save your money and buy something better.

Amazingly consistent! We use this oven all the time in our kitchen. The back top corners get a little hotter than the rest of the unit, so depending on what you put in there you might have to rotate your trays at some point. Once we figured out a system it's been a gem to use.

Ryan S. from Plantology LLC on 06/07/2021
         

Not worth the price tag, will die like clockwork once it's outside of the year warranty period. I didn't heed others' advice and I paid the price for it. Since we were closed for COVID, we only used the oven for 5 months before the heating element died, but since the purchase date was over a year ago, customer service refused to do anything about it.

You definitely get what you pay for. Mine is cooking unevenly, it has major hot spots, and even though it's convection you need to rotate pans to get uniform cooking. It runs low on temperature and the temperature dial is worthless, you will need an oven thermometer. And finally, you can only use one rack at a time. If you use more than one, whatever you put on the other racks will be either undercooked or overcooked.

I highly recommend this oven. Pros; It heats up in minutes, and it is inexpensive. Cons; the temp dial is worthless you have to by an oven thermometer, and the timer is only good for 60min.

This is a beast! This unit is a work horse. The Avantco CO-28 Half Size Countertop Convection Oven, 2.3 Cu. Ft. - 208/240V, 2800W and also the 110v are great.

Herman H. from In-Stock Supply Inc on 04/14/2020
         

Not built to last. Within the first 6 months the door failed and was replaced under warranty. We bought this oven in Oct 2018 and it officially died March 9th 2020, just over a year so it's out of warranty. It worked ok while we had it, it had hot and cold spots so the pans had to be rotated for even cooking. When it finally died it melted the breaker and flipped a bunch of other breakers, which happened during service of course. If you decide to go with this oven just know you will be replacing it.

First of all the power cord was backward compared the spec sheet. Major hot spots and runs low on temperature. Within two months we decided to get something better, now just need to figure out how to get rid of this one or sell it. As a business owner it’s annoying to spend time on things like this.

This is my second avantco half size countertop oven and I have really enjoyed them. They heat up very fast and very hot so make sure to monitor whatever you are cooking or add a gauge on the rack.

Robert H. from Harbor House Seafood on 01/20/2020
         

This fits perfectly in my small space and heats up quickly and is well insulated. Even though it is convection, rotation of the pans is still necessary to keep products from burning on one side.

Troy P. from Fit Baking Company on 11/25/2019
         

We took a full size stove/oven out of a kitchen where we really only needed the oven function, and we now use this countertop unit. It works great for keeping pans warm and also does a great job of cooking multiple pans at once. It's well sealed and sturdy. The top does get warm, so we wouldn't recommend planning to have the top for stacking anything.

Caroline C. from Jefferson Country Store on 09/26/2019
         

This was great, but make sure you have the correct outlet or plan on having some electrical work done. I love the height between racks.

We've been using this in our cafe for light baking every day for about a month now, and it's great. I wouldn't start a bakery with it, but for light baking at the beginning of the day it works just fine.

one of the best ovens ive used...bakes evenly and efficiently...the fan blows hot air so all my cakes and pastries bake up more fluffy and light!

Excellent convection oven for a great price! The oven itself is actually relatively light, so you can move it around, if need be. It's quite and works really nicely, and doesn't take up a ton of space. Perfect for small loads of things that need to get baked. The only slight downside is that the dial is not terribly accurate/easy to read, so you have to eyeball the temperature on the dial, to the best of your ability.
