MajorApp, I do like my polara range. I do not often use the programming b/c we have some pretty bad power surges here and I have a fear of leaving it set when I am not at home. I have used it to set a turkey on Thanksgiving, so I didn't have to get up so early to start it. Also use it on Christmas morning. Have a nice toasty breakfast casserole ready when we get up. Its great for parties too. Can use the fridge on it to keep extra drinks cool, or food trays that won't fit in the fridg will certainly fit in this oven. My only complaint is that the control panel is in the front and moisture gets to them if something boils over. It was probably that or the power surges that caused my problem. Overall it is an awesome concept.
