This 1,235-watt countertop oven makes pizza in about half the time required by a conventional oven. You don't need to preheat it--it begins rotating and baking the moment you plug it in. There are independently controlled top and bottom heating elements, so all types (frozen or fresh) and sizes (7 to 12 inches) of pizza can be custom baked. With a rising-crust pizza, for example, you should run the lower heating element for 10-12 minutes before turning on the top element. For a crisper crust, bake the pizza with both heating elements, then finish it off with a few minutes of bottom-only heating. For extra cooking time on your toppings, leave the top element on a little longer. A timer with automatic shutoff lets you set cooking times precisely, and a cooking-time guide for various pizza types is printed on the pizza maker. For safety, the appliance shuts off automatically if it overheats. With the 13-1/4-inch-diameter baking pan in place, the pizza maker is 13-1/4 inches wide, 9-1/2 inches high, and 17-1/2 inches deep. (The baking pan can be removed for more compact storage.) It carries a two-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack

Things that dont turn out well on it. French fries, biscuits, homemade bread.
Things that turned out well. Pizza, fish sticks, frozen fish patties, pot pies, mozzarella sticks, chicken nuggets.
That's all we tried so far as I normally cook healthier meals.
I've probably used the oven an average of 1 to 1 1/2 times a week. Sometimes 2 - 3 times a week and then I might go 2 - 3 weeks before using it again. It's been used almost exclusively for pizza. I used it maybe 5 times for other things and it worked well but it just doesn't come to mind when I can finally drag myself into the kitchen and cook something.
Like the title says I've got almost 8 years out of it so far so A+ there. The pan itself could have a better non-stick coating on it and the newer ones may have but the '08 model leaves a little to be desired. When I first got it I made sure to wash it after every use. Now that I'm older and lazier I generally just hold it over the sink and wipe it off with a paper towel. Big deal if it's not completely clean and has a few crumbs or burnt cheese stuck to it. That will just add texture and flavor to the next pizza. Who doesn’t like those crunchy crispies at the bottom of the french fries box? And besides, it hasn't killed me ... yet.
My Frozen Pizza Prep Method:
I have done “from scratch” pizzas that turned out quite well but remember in the paragraph above I mentioned that I’m older and lazier now? Anymore I usually just stick with the frozen variety that can usually turn out very good if you doctor them up a bit.
I do my pizza prep on an Oneida Commercial 16 Inch Pizza Pan I purchased just for this purpose. (It was on sale at 2 for $6 when I got it.) It’s larger than the Pizzazz pan so it will catch most of the enthusiastically thrown toppings that are coming.
1) Remove frozen pizza from packaging and place the 16” pizza pan making sure there is no cardboard stuck to the bottom (special attention needed if it’s a Tombstone pizza).
2) Apply a liberal dose of pizza sauce such as Muir Glen Organic Pizza Sauce, 15-Ounce Cans (Pack of 12) or Contadina Pizza Sauce, 15 Oz . I like using the Contadina squirt bottle so I rinse them out and save them for use with the Muir Glen. I’ll also water either sauce down slightly because they are both rather thick after being refrigerated. With a squirt bottle I put the sauce on in a spiral pattern and just leave it that way. It seems to spread out okay while cooking later. Otherwise, like with a freshly open can of Glen Muir, I’ll smudge it on with a tablespoon.
3) Dust lightly with Garlic Salt.
4) Place a pepperoni slice in every open space that did not have a pepperoni to begin with. Overlapping slices is perfectly acceptable. Any pepperoni should be okay except for maybe that Turkey or some other fake pepperoni. If you have a Publix Supermarket nearby you should really consider trying the Publix Brand pepperoni … good stuff.
5) Cover entire pizza with mozzarella or your other favorite cheese. Quoting from The Huffington Post that was reporting about a pizza cheese study … “the researchers concluded in their study that mozzarella can be combined with any of the other six cheeses (cheddar, Colby, Edam, Emmental, Gruyere, and provolone) to create just the right amount of browning and blistering you prefer on a gourmet pizza -- for instance, try cheddar for less blisters or provolone for less browning.”
6) Transfer the pizza from the 16” prep pan to the Pizzazz pan. Pour any excess, enthusiastically thrown toppings caught by prep pan to pizza.
7) Set Pizzazz pan onto Pizzazz oven spindle and if the oven is plugged in you should hear the motor start and the pan will start rotating. This can get a little tricky. I usually have to kneel down and watch the underside of the pan to make sure it sits on the spindle properly. There’s gotta be a better way of designing the oven to make this easier and foolproof.
8) Make sure the heating elements switch is in the correct position. Since all I do anymore is frozen, I just leave the switch in “Dual” which heats the top and the bottom of the pizza.
9) Turn the timer switch to the appropriate time. For normal crust pizzas like Tombstone I’ll use around 13 or 14 minutes. For thick, self rising crust like DiGiorno I set it for the full 20 minutes. (Side note: I used to never like the thick, rising crust pizzas because the only one I’d tried was DiGiorno. One day I was getting pizzas and Pepsi’s at Walgreens and a nice lady in the checkout line turned me on ... ... ... (where was I? ... oh yeah) to the Walgreens brand called Good & Delish Frozen Rising-Crust Pizza. I was impressed with it. I can’t say it’s my favorite but it is definitely a regular now. Also, Jack’s pizza available there and other places is quite good if doctored up properly.)
10) Set some other audible timer for 4 to 6 minutes longer than you set the Pizzazz timer for.
11) Go watch TV or if you like, just sit there and anticipate the yummy goodness that is coming your way.
12) When the 4 to 6 minute delayed audible timer goes off the Pizzazz pizza pan may be cool enough to handle with your bare hands. With the Pizzazz in place and still rotating, push the pizza around just a little to make sure it’s not stuck to the pan. Holding the 16” prep pan next to the oven in one hand, slide the cooked pizza off the Pizzazz pan onto the prep pan with the other hand.
13) Set the prep pan on a sturdy surface and slice the pizza to your liking. I’ve tried various pizza cutters and the style I like best is the Bialetti Taste of Italy Pizza Chopper, 14-Inch . (Yes, I know you should not use a cutter on a non-stick pizza pan but that was my entire purpose for my getting the pan. I bought it July ’13 and while it does have a few crease marks on it, there is no peeling yet. The only heat it sees is from a hot pizza sitting on it. The second pan of the set hasn’t even been used yet.)
14) If you must, fix up a salad so you can claim you ate healthy. Plop yourself back in front of the TV. Set your dinner on a Table-Mate II Woodgrain Folding Table and enjoy.

Je suis vraiment enchantée , ma pâte était parfaite ainsi que tout le reste.
Je recommande ce four à Pizza.
j ai acheter sur Amazon reconditionner ,et ils et comme neuf et fonction parfaitement ,reste selement a cuir une pizza et voir le vrais résulta.
The only thing - there is no on/off switch so you have to plug and unplug the item when you use it. I understand that this can be a good security item since it does get hot, but still a tad inconvenient that you can't just turn it off.
