I'm intrigued by these ovens - they seem perfect for a studio where space is limited - compact, energy efficient and they won't heat up the entire house.  European polymeristas have commented on them at voila.eu.com and they seem to work fine with polymer.  I like that the glass bowl can be so easily cleaned of polymer residue (Fagor brand).   Anybody have any experience with them?

I'm on the point of ordering one, just because I'm so frustrated with every oven I've ever used. I 'm using a convection oven at the moment, and had a disaster the other day...
What interested me was the idea of no preheating time. I seem to spend hours making sure the oven isn't going up or down. Sorry not to have something more concrete to add - I too am curious to see what others have to say!
I finally broke down and bought a good oven too. A Sears convection like Ronna's. And let me just say, PHEW! The convection fans keep the temp. steady as it goes and I no longer worry about ruining work. Afterward, i wondered what took me so long. Even $350 for a vital piece of studio equipment is cheap compared to other crafts.
True, the fan is strong. The first time I used the oven I had placed the pieces on a bed of baking soda, and I had a bit of a white storm inside the oven. Should have taken pictures. To solve the problem, I now put small pieces in a pyrex dish which I then place inside the oven.
Hi Betsy. I have been looking at these ovens as well. My concern is not performance but rather spacial limitations. Will I be able to use my current baking trays, etc.
I laughed at Christine Dumont's baking soda incident while using the oven.
