What We Don’t Know:

  1. Digital model doesn’t include the extension ring. It does have the 3 year warranty.

  2. maryanne calvillo

    Just got one today and while using for first time it seems to be turning on and off is that normal?

  3. how does it perform?

    • It performs well. I cooked 3 pork loin roasts in it and they all turned out very good. Crispy on the outside and moist and juicy on the inside. The time to cook seems faster than in a regular oven, I think because the heating element is closer to the roast than in an oven and because of the fan. And the cook time seems to be faster as well. Overall, I’m pleased with its performance.

  4. Is this like/does it perform like a air fryer? Air fryers appear to be nothing more than a small oven with a fan = convection oven. Am I wrong here?

    • It’s works better than those other enclosed air fryers where you can’t see your food being cooked. I’ve bought the 2017 model and now this digital model and I find this digital model better. Two big pluses from older models is that its digital with presets (old ones would have the lettering wear off over time and couldn’t really determine the temp setting) and the power cord can now be removed from the heating unit. When these these units go out, it’s due to the power cords getting damaged. So if this cord gets damaged, all you’ll have to do is buy a new cord instead of replacing the whole unit. So far I’ve used it for baked chicken and toasting my Italian bread and it comes out great everytime. There is a setting called reheat that I love to use for toasting multiple slices of Italian bread and other meals that have already been cooked.

  5. Does anyone have a link to the manual (Ambiano Digital Turbo Convection Oven manual) ? Misplaced the manual. Thank you in advance.

  6. I’m headed out tomorrow to return my second Ambiano convection oven in less than a week. Both of the units would cycle on and off like they were supposed to, but both eventually would just stay on, the first one burning my food, the second one the plastic parts on the lid actually melted, and when I picked up the lid, it came apart exposing the wires. I love this thing and I am so disappointed in the poor design/manufacturing. It’s not typical with Ambiano.

  7. We got the digital one for Christmas and turned it on for the first time today. Wife said it was on for a total of 2 min and it shut off. Said it smelled like burning plastic and now it wont turn back on. Looking at the top I can see the vent has started to melt. I dont think it’s supposed to do that with 2 min of life.
