Almost Idiot Proof. Almost.,
This review is from: Presto 03430 Pizzazz Plus Rotating Oven (Kitchen)
My in-laws gave us one of these as a gift. I thought it was a joke. Then we used it. The Pizzazz consistently cooks frozen pizzas well.
The nonstick disk is simple to clean. I don't understand how anyone would scratch it, unless he's using steel wool or something to clean it. And that is hardly necessary: it washes clean with a bit of soap and water (or even just a clean towel).
Even with rising crust pizzas, we have never had the food come anywhere near the heating element.
My only complaint is that you cannot accelerate the timer. You can adjust it to add time, but once it's set, you have to wait for it to run down. This is a minor inconvenience, though I would like to be able to turn off the heating elements when the pizza is done rather than take the pizza off the disk and wait for the "ding" at the end of the cooking cycle. (You could unplug the machine, but the residual heat from the elements might cook the disk, which obviously stops rotating when you unplug the machine. The elements stay hot for a little while after the cycle ends.)
All in all, this is a surprisingly effective product.

you can advance the time, just turn the dial the other way.....

roger that, A. Hord, and it's a shame somebody negged your comment, because you're 100% correct. it seems from the feel that you'd mess up the dial by forcing it the other way, but -- at least in my case -- that doesn't happen. i've pushed the timer down plenty. man, do i love this gizmo.

A. Hord. On ours, which we got five years ago, it won't accellerate. Maybe the company changed the design of the timer.

Read the book that came in the box. Push down on the timer dial & turn it back to shut off.

I unplug it and put the disk in the sink!

Yeah, when this machine first came out the knob was not able to change the time except to cook for longer. They changed the design and now we can accelerate or turn it off faster.
