Here's another entry: American Harvest Convection Perfection CO200T. Picked it up for $30 at a local thrift shop. Note that this model has a safety switch and will not operate unless the convection oven top is correctly positioned in the plastic housing. These switches are trivial to defeat, but even that's not necessary: the Stir Crazy fits quite nicely in the plastic stand, just below the oven top.

Had to give the Stir Crazy/convection oven thang a try after hearing the praise from so many happy CGers. Unfortunately, my SC/CO roasts have not been anything to brag about. The beans roast very unevenly - more so than any other technique I have tried - and have a tendency to scorch. Disconnecting the SC heating element did not help. Probably need to add some of those fancy agitators to the stirring rod... Anyway, it all became a moot point when I got an Aerorost II, which I greatly prefer.

Incidentally, a tabletop convection oven is a cool kitchen addition in its own right. I've roasted chickens, lamb chops, salmon, potato, squash... even baked cookies in it!

Really? I know my Grandmother has one but I have never seen her use it. Tried to get it from her for this but lost the battle :(

Take a look at this one for 29.99 . It's rated at 1300 watts , I would consider this a plus for roasting.

Can anyone find some more info about this particular oven?  (its max temperature, perhaps?), or have some experience with it?  I don't want to end up buying something that isn't going to work well...

I believe this is the Tamayo TO-2000. Looks like a great deal for $30 new.

Oops, make that Tayama...

It looks like a TAYAMA TO-2000 which on some sites is referred to as a EZ COOK Super Turbo Oven.

Which looks a lot like the Supentown.  For $37.94 for the EZ Cook Turbo Oven shipped I'd take the chance.

The thermostats seem to not be very accurate at least on the Supentown it is not. Of course they were not designed to be put on a Stir Crazy.

Hi Nick, the Sunpentown is 1,200 watts & works just fine as reported on other threads about the SC/GG. This unit is 1,300 watts so I would assume/think it would be fine!

Okay, that should be fine.  My primary concern was: is it going to get things hot enough? but it looks like it'tal be fine.  Their model number even sounds like they're just making a supentown clone...

Thanks, guys!
