Galloping Gourmet 'Perfection-Aire' convection oven, $10.

This little oven's profile seems to be pretty generic, because although there are so many different brands, they all seem to look the same. Beware, because many brands aren't even worth bothering with. So when it comes to these little glass convection ovens, the 'sweet spot' appears to be the Galloping Gourmet, because it combines availability with good resale value.

It's important to keep in mind that there's no real shortage of these ovens on eBay, so you should stick with those ovens that are in new condition. And that's not really hard to do, since so many people who bought them only used them a time or two. Here are a few tips when it comes to these little ovens:

Check carefully for any breakage or damage, because these ovens are notorous for accruing damage that's not easy to see at first. The plastic tops crack, the handles break and the glass edges chip off. There's no reason to get stuck with damage you didn't discover until it was too late!

Make sure the metal racks are present and accounted for, because from the ovens I've seen out there, people had a real hard time keeping track of them.

Although the manuals won't break the deal if they're not there, it's always a plus to have them.

So I reiterate - stick with like new and you should be okay!
