As promised, pictures of my roast chicken that I served when my sister was here last week. It turned out that only one sister came and she left before dinner the last day, so I only ended up having to cook 2 dinners.

It was wonderfully juicy and tender.  Mr. Kim had to work late and had some cold and said it was still great.  Cut up:

The wing tips and the ends of the legs got a little singed before I put foil on.  Trussed up, the chicken was a little tall.  The sides didn’t get as browned as the top.  Minor issues - I imagine this will be my chicken roasting method from now on (when I don't sneak off to Costco for a rotisserie chicken.  Just sayin').

Patina. I'm stealing that.

 

That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

Wow, they sorta appeared out of nowhere!

 

 

The Tovala has been discussed on eGullet before -- there's a thread here: 

 

The Sharp is I think intended as a pizza oven -- it's low and wide. Much shorter than the CSO, which really limits its use.

 

The Emerson is more interesting -- I'm guessing they're just rebranding something from China, as it appears identical to the rather generic-looking "AUG" I noticed before I bought the Cuisinart. Way cheaper, though -- $229 versus $385 -- and from a brand that actually exists. Both of those are points in its favor.

 

(Edited to add: apologies for the giant animated gif, I can't figure out how to remove it...)

@gfweb I looked on amazon and saw at least a couple other brands.  How about if you take one for the team?

 

But which one?

Oddly, that link won't open for me. Anyone care to post the un-shortened version?

Looking up the user manual for the Emerson, It appears to be large enough inside to accommodate a 9x13 pan. So that's something.

The Emerson got a lot of bad reviews on Amazon.

Oh, I'm not seriously interested at present.

 

One day *somebody* will make one large enough for a 9x13, in decent quality, at a price point of $150 or lower. That's when I'll start to consider buying one.

I converted the Emerson's inner dimensions from metric, but didn't write them down. It was something like 13.5" wide, 9.05" deep, and 11.8" high.

My toaster has died. Will a CSO do toast?

As an item of intense personal interest, will a CSO do toasted cheese? (I grew up with these)

 

I've used a toaster oven for years.  The last one was a Cuisinart Convection oven. I bought it specifically

for toast.  And it did its job for 15 years.   Great toaster. 

 

The CSO is even better.  Thankfully it is good at everything, but even if it wasn't I would buy it just for its toast function.
