Microwave / Convection Combo Oven - Any Good?

Seitan | Jun 25, 2011 06:50 PM

Recently l've been looking for both a toaster oven and a microwave to replace both of my ancient units. I was in an electronics store the other day and noticed they had a Panasonic Inverter Convection Microwave (NNCF770M)

It made me think that maybe I could replace both my old toaster oven and my old microwave with just this one oven. While looking at it in the store I noticed there was no spinning turntable, which made me wonder how evenly microwaved foods would turn out. It had heating elements above in the ceiling, but not below. It looked like it would broil and bake food relatively well though.

Has anyone here had any experience with a microwave/convection oven? (doesn't have to be Panasonic). If so, what has your experience been like? Would you recommend a combination appliance like this, or should I just buy a seperate toaster oven and microwave oven.
