? about broiling in Advantium - x-post

We're getting an Advantium oven, along with a convection oven, when we re*model. I haven't had a chance to use one yet (checking my local appliance store to see if they have a "live" one) so I'm hoping someone here can answer my question.

I've read that it can broil (found info here & elsewhere) but what I can't seem to determine is if it will broil open faced sandwiches like you can in a toaster oven. My youngest son loves to make these but if I can ditch the toaster oven, I' will and use its designated space for storage instead.

I don't own one yet, but I've looked extensively. I assume you're getting the 240v version. It has a set of halogen elements in the top so it will melt cheese.

Yes, we are getting the 240v version, weedmeister. Sorry for not including model info in my OP. Thanks for replying!

That's exactly what my youngest son wants it to do so I think it will work for him. Hopefully I can find a "live" unit so I can do a test run before making our final decision.

If you tell me what your son likes, I can try one for you.

It does a decent job on cheese toast--crispy crust and melted cheese--in "texas toast" mode. I learned that in an experiment (scroll to the middle) comparing it to a toaster oven.

You can brown casseroles. It doesn't broil steaks. :)

Thanks, plllog! Cheese toast is exactly what my son likes to make: grated cheese on top of English muffins. I've bookmarked that thread to come back to re-read again later.
