To Sylvia:

In regards to cooking in the oven, in 10/9 newsletter . I bought a counter top oven that has a 16 inch square cooking compartment. It takes 1/4 h the electricity to cook things. I tried the browning plate and gave up as never had good results with any thing I tried on it at all ! I think it is one of those things to get you to spend more money on another good sounding gadget.
