I went to buy a countertop oven so I could cook in the basement during the summer. I needed something reasonably big. I read poor reviews of the Waring Pro on Amazon so I ruled it out. When I got to the store, however, the Waring on display looked much more solid and substantial than the other models. I liked the size and the sturdiness. I decided to try it despite the relatively high price tag and the poor reviews. I wish I had listened to the reviews. The instruction booklet states that this will smell for the first use. It advises that the user heat the oven for 10 minutes to 500 degrees. I tried that and it did, indeed, smell. I wiped it out as recommended, aired out the basement and waited a few hours. I tried the oven again. It smelled awful. I live in a two story home and I could smell it on the second floor even though the oven was in the basement with the door closed!! I really wanted to keep this oven so I again let it cool, wiped it out and aired out the basement. I tried it again that evening and still, the smell was there. My husband went to take a look and pointed out how the door seal was only a partial one and allowed for quite a gap on the lower 1/3 of the door on each side. Also, when my husband opened the door to see where the smell was coming from, the door seal was sagging badly. When the oven cooled it went back but it was not doing its job when the oven was hot. I returned the oven for a much cheaper, but well reviewed, Hamilton Beach.
This oven has many good aspects; the stainless steel looks great, the door seems sturdy and the included racks and baking tins all seem heavy duty. The interior of the oven is not coated in non stick chemicals (an important factor for me) and the timer goes up to 2 hours and also has a stay on feature. The instruction manual is very clearly written.
Unfortunately, from the reviews I have read, it would seem that there is a serious quality issue at the factory in China and Waring needs to address it before its good name is tarnished.
Do not waste your time and effort bringing this oven home.
