Have had the oven for 2 weeks and performance has been great (gave it 4 stars and not 5 because of the short time). Heats quickly and convection feature ensures uniform baking (successfully baked souffles and casseroles so far). Can even fit a 10 1/2" lodge cast iron skillet. Outside does heat up, but no more than my previous toaster ovens. Digital display tells you exactly what the temperature is. Beep could be louder when it finishes a cycle, but no big deal.

When my oven died shortly before lots of holiday company, I needed a quick fix. The XL Oven was my choice after reading about similar ovens. It has been helpful... although the cookies I tried burned (new recipe and new 'oven' so not sure which was the issue); the quiche took at least twice the normal time to bake (but was yummy); a 13" x 9" pan without handles fits nicely in the oven -- but I haven't found a pizza pan that fits so haven't tried pizza. It did a nice job with fruit crisp. It preheats pretty quickly but you need to pay attention to the beep saying it is ready and when it is done. Clean-up so far has been easy.
