That's my point. I'm not at all sure that it is.

Absolutely, Andy. Plus, you have to factor in the cost of said appliance, not to mention the loss of counter space--no small consideration in my kitchen.

I made four hamburgers in the convection oven last night. They cooked so fast and I didn't even have to turn them over. It cooked both sides with the fan at the same time. Baked fish it was a success too. Hated to take everything out of the oven I keep stored just for those four hamburgers. I still like use my stove top for every day pots & skillets.
Here in Florida they are charging us a fuel adj. charge which was $11.76 of my $25.34 bill plus Surcharge fee of $1.43 on our gas bill with the city.
